Here we have the dashboard of a Honda Odyssey. We want to change the cabin air filter, which is sort of tucked away behind the glove compartment. We're going to start this off by removing the glove compartment. We'll pop it open. Over on the left side you're going to push down on this little device here. Then, on the top sides of the glove box, you're going to push in. You'll see that there's a tab here, and there's the tab on the other side that's identical. Those hold it in. At that point, you can pull it completely out and you cannot even dump out all of your items, which is great. We're going to set this aside.

Then, right up here on the heater box is where the cabin air filter lives. There's a tab on each side of this which you can pull out. There's not a ton of room to pull it out of here. Here we go. Here's the cabin air filter. You can see it's got some leaves on it. We're going to go ahead and pop that right out. Remove all the bugs and the leaves, and set that aside.

Here we have the old filter, which you can see is full of bugs and debris. Over here we got the new filter. It essentially looks the same. You can see the bottom has the air flow marking on it, so you know which way to put it in. It's the same size and shape, so it's going to filter out all the future bugs and leaves just like the original one did. You can see on here the filter says "air flow down."

Then right on the holder it says "air flow down," so you know you're putting it in the right direction. It looks like I actually had to turn this 90 degrees and drop it right in the plastic holder. I got to make sure it's tucked in the edges because you don't want any open areas where the bugs can flow through. Otherwise, you're going to have bugs flowing through your vents. Now you can see it's tight around the edge, tight around this edge.

Now we can slide it back in just like that. Now we're going to clip the glove box right back into its dashboard area. It clips right in the bottom first on the driver side, then it clips on the passenger side right here. Then we'll lift this up just to make sure it's not catching anything. At this point you can push it right into place, then come down here. You'll see a little flange or something that this attaches to.

We'll pull it out and lift up on it. It's a little bit difficult to get with your fingers. There we go. You can see it comes up from the bottom and it locks onto this little tab right here. At that point, you can close your glove box and your filter is changed.
