How do I Find My Acura MDX, Honda Odyssey or Honda Pilot Cabin Air Filter

Your cabin air filter is located behind the glove box. Remove the passenger side threshold panel and unscrew the plastic screw on the kick panel to remove it. Open the glove box compartment and find the stop features. Usually they're located on the left and right. Remove the fasteners holding the stop features and close the glove box. Locate and remove the two screws on the left and right of the box. You should now be able unlatch and remove the glove box. If this is the first time the cabin air filter is being serviced, you should find a plastic bridge that you'll have to remove to access the metal crossbar. There should be guides to cut the bridge, which you can now discard. If the bridge is not present, you can move straight to removing the metal crossbar. The crossbar is removed by taking off the fasteners on the left and right. Once the crossbar is loose, you should be able to lower the right side to access the cabin air filter housing.
