Welcome to HAF 6gun!!!!


It is behind the glovebox. There's no cutting. Use the search function like I did.

Also, add a signature and post an introduction thread.

No cutting is involved. The parts guy is a moron. Check out the DIY section. There is a link with pictures in there.

Well on some Honda models they do require cutting, such as the Odyssey, and Pilot...

He probably just assumed all Hondas are that way..

Either way, it's a 10 second job..

Here's a small wiki article i put together with a video link:

On 2003+ it's a quick job, but it's very differenton a 6th-gen ('98-'02). You might want to point that out in your wiki article.

On his 2000 he'll need to remove a half-dozen screws to actually remove the glovebox. Can't just hinge it down like 2003. And it's a PITA to reach & unplug the glovebox light wire.

Then there's a metal bar across the front. Only 2 screws, but still...

Jim,
Ok cool... Do you have access to taking any pictures so I can explain it thoroughly?


Also guys, feel free to sign up for that wiki and start making pages like crazy

I can make a few of you admins so you can update the meta-pages as well (the maintenance page, etc)..
otherwise you can make a wiki article and email me the info, and i'll update the pages as well..

I'd like it to be pretty comprehensive much like the local DIY section, but formatted nicer with better pictures and a central location with up to date info, and even notes from owners.

Sorry, I've actually sold that '98 Accord.

For sixgun's info...
While the newer ones are MUCH easier to change, it's not real difficult to change yours. When you buy a new filter, be aware that it's really a PAIR of filters.
