Open the glove box and there are push out tabs on the left and right side pop them out. Now watch it because you are about to dump the contents of your glove box on the floor. let the box hang freely from the lower hinge and look in the back. You will see a white panel that pulls out the panel has a tray attached with the filter element in it remove old element and replace with new 20ish bucks at the parts store lots more at the dealer. re-install filter tray and reverse your removal steps to re-install. Recommended approx 15k or annually

Where is dust and pollen filter located 04 civic

The cabin air filters are located in a box that is part of the blower motor housing.

To access them, you will need to get behind the glove compartment. Open the glove box and you will see the stops/supports on each side of the door. They are held in by clips, so push from the outside inward and pop them loose. At this point, the glove box door will open fully and dump its contents on the floor.

Now, look behind the door, you will see the blower housing. On the front of the housing is a plastic cover. Remove the cover and you will see two tabs. Pull the left tab to remove the first filter and its carrier. Slide the tab on the right to the left and remove the second filter. Remove each old filter from its carrier and replace them with the new filters.

Reverse the process to put everythig back together. Clean up all that stuff on the floor. ;)

Where is the cabin filter on a 2003 honda odysseey

The cabin filter is located behind the glovebox.
First lower and remove the glovebox
If it has not been changed before, you will need to cut the plastic crossbrace behind the glovebox.
Once out of the way, unbolt the steel reinforcing frame behind the plastic and set it aside.
The cabin filter is mounted vertically behind it.

Inside the car air cleaner filter, where are they located and how do you replace it?

the cabin filters (you need 2) are behind the glove box. There are a couple of rubber bumpers that keep the glove box from opening ... moving them allows it to drop wide open and give access to the cabin filters.

Glove box release so I can change the hepa filter on my 2006 Honda Odyssey

The procedure for removing the cabin air filter lists to remove the glove box housing. You usually can either ....1 empty out glove box, look and see if there are two tabs (stops) on the box part that tilts out. Often times the plastic box can be squeeze in at both sides to clear the housing. This allows it to tilt all the way down and you're off. or 2- empty out the glove box and completely remove the assembly. This requires removing 4 to 6 screws on sides and likely on bottom to pull out whole housing. Once out the rest should be very obvious.
