Icon5 cabin air filter question

i do not have an owners manual, so my question is how often does everyone change their cabin filter? To assume that it is behind the glove compartment is that correct? How intensive is it to change out, and is it 1 or 2 filters?


Cheers.

thats a damn fine question.. I have never changed the cabin filter on my lude and for many years was not even aware ludes had one..and yes its behind the glove compartment . from what i have heard it isnt very difficult to change..sometimes you do get leaves stuck in there and it makes irritating noises but apart from that i dont think anyone has ever seen the need to change it

Well 1st up, only the 99-01 had them here in the States anyways.

There are 2 of them and they are a bit expensive.

Here is a pic. for refference.

To replace them, you need to remove the glove box. Then if they have never been done before, (Virgin car,) you must cut a piece of the dash out. It is a flat plastic piece the runs horizontial. After that is removed you just remove a cover (#31) and then remove the trays (#33, 35) that contain the filters (#32).

They recommend doing it every 30,000 miles but it really depends on how much ya drive it and how dirty the air in your area is. In other words if ya live in LA ya may want to do it a bit more than if ya live in a small city with not much smog.

Hopefully this has helped a bit. If it has I do accept rep.

Re: cabin air filter question

I usually change my cabin filter at least twice a year, or every 12,000 to 15,000 miles.

Re: cabin air filter question

Thread was 3 years old... Preludes 99+ have cabin filters. Others don't.

Re: cabin air filter question

I replace mine once every 5 years .
You have to remove the glove box to get at it but thats not hard .
Theirs a vertical plastic strap that is snapped into place that you pop off to get to the filters.Their are two filters stacked one on top of the other that makes removal and re install a little tricky.If you buy a new filter from Honda , it will cost you a lot. I went to Walmart but they did not sell a filter that had the correct length filter so I bought a ACCORD filter, and using some scissors, cut it down to the correct length and was able to make it work on my Prelude just fine.
