2006 Honda Accord Cabin Filter(s)

Have a 2006 Honda Accord EX V6 Sedan. apprx 47K miles. recent service dealer recommended that cabin filter be changed. their cost was just under $100. question? how many cabin filters are there? where are they located? is this something I could do myself? any special tools required? how long to do job? would I be better off just letting dealer do this? is it even necessary?

sorry for so many questions.

thanks for reading and your replies/advice.

Not sure if this is exactly the same, but should be close:

Cabin Air Filter replacement (7th Gen) - Drive Accord Honda Forums

The filter itself would run about $20 at a parts store. No way I would pay $100 to have it done.

Your owner's manual should show you how to change the filter(s). I have had very good luck just washing my filter in warm soap and water, rinsing and letting it dry in the sun ... works like new. Vacuuming it periodically keeps it flowing well also.

Just so you know, the owner's manual for the 2006 does not even list either the cabin filter or the engine filter, much less location or instructions to install. humm, wonder why?

I do appreciate the replies. However this is a question for the Honda experts. Is it just one filter? Is it directly behind the glove compartment for the 2006 Accord? I did see a youtube video on changing the cabin filter out. looks rather simple to accomplish if this is for the 2006.

again, I appreciate the help.

Thx

Wix 24815 cabin filter
Amsoil website says this about installation:


CABIN AIR FILTER 24815 Cabin Air Filtration Product
WIX No. 24815
Estimated installation time (minutes): 30
The cabin air filter is behind the glove box and it must
be removed.
1.
Open the glove box
2.
Remove the damper from the glove box then let the glove box hang down.
3.
Slide out the cabin air cover + assembly from the evaporator case.
4.
Remove the old filter from the housing + install a new cabin air filter + make sure it is
properly seated.
5.
Slide the assembly back into position + make sure there is no air leaking out of the
evaporator.
6.
Reinstall the glove box.

Thank you for your reply. This was exactly what I saw on the YouTube video.

Is there different quality filters as far as the aftermarket products?

and does Honda recommend a time/mileage interval for replacement?
