How do I Find My Acura CL, CL Type-S, TL, TL Type-S & Honda Accord Cabin Air Filter

Your cabin air filter is probably located behind your glove box. Inside the glove box you should find two screws in the striker and two behind the cap. Remove them, starting with the striker screws. After you've done that, you probably need to locate the fuse box and remove the cover. There should be two screws here that you must remove. Now, remove the panel that's between the center console and the radio and remove the screw. You can now take away the lower dash panel. There are four screws holding the glove box; remove them.

Carefully, pull the glove box out just enough so that you can unclip the pigtail clip on the left-hand side and then remove the glove box completely. After you've done this, you'll see a bolt holding a ground wire and two screws holding the cross bar. DO NOT remove the bolt holding the ground wire. Remove the screws and let the crossbar hang, but make sure it's not pulling on the ground wire. Now you will see the cabin filter housing.
