03 Acura TL cabin filter location?
The cabin filter is located behind the glove box. The repair is a 15 minute job the first time. Open the glove box, slide out the two clips that hold the box from freely swinging open. Once removed, let the box swing freely toward the floor. This reveals a plate with a screw, remove the plate and the cabin filters (2) are revealed. They slide out so note the orientation for later replacement.

The left and right side bulbs will need different procedures. I replaced the right (passenger) side bulb as follows: 1. Get something to protect your knuckles first. I skinned mine! 2. Use a screwdriver to gently pry off the connector. This might need a little work. Mine somehow got stuck to the pro…ngs of the bulb and refused to come off. Eventually two of the prongs came off with it. If this happens, get a pair of pliars and pull them off later. Try not to damage the connector. 3. Peel back the black rubber gasket that covers the bulb. 4. There is an U-shaped spring clip that holds the bulb in place. Push down on the top arm of the spring and move it up and out of the latch. The spring will then rotate back out of the way. The bulb should now come out easily. 5.Put the new bulb in, make sure it sits securely. There is only one position for it to sit snug. When seated properly, the middle prong will be horizontal and above the two side prongs. 6. Put the clip back on. 7. Put the gasket back on. There is an arrow on the gasket showing the top, this is supposed to be aligned with the mark on the housing. Don't know how critical that is. 8. Now just pop the connector back on. You are done. Be sure to test the lights. If you are replacing the driver side light. it is a little more tight access to get in there. You may need to remove the coolant containers before you can access the headlight housing. Other than that, it should be the same.

not sure about the 96 but they are similar to the 97. On the 97 you remove the plastic cover, the EGR valve is located on the left side (standing in front of and facing the car) to the rear of the engine about the 11 oclock position. Answer it should be under warranty - there was a recall or somet…hing (MORE)
You open the glove box and you will see two black plastic pieces toward the top on either side of the glove box. This is what is holding the glove box up. Get a screw drive and pop these off. the glove box will fall down. Then you will see a white plastic box this is where your filters are...open it… and pull both out and replace FOR 2009-2010 TL - OPEN THE GLOVE BOX - PULL THE CENTER SHELF TOWARDS YOU - IT POPS OUT - BEHIND THAT IS THE FACE PLATE FOR THE FILTER TRAY - PUSH THE TABS ON THE LEFT AND RIGHT SIDE IN AND REMOVE TRAY - THE FILTER JUST SITS IN THE TRAY - REPLACE WITH AFTER MARKET FILTER AND REVERSE THE PROCESS - MUCH EASIER THAN THE 2008 AND OLDER TLs!

Answer . This filter is behind the glove compartment. The entire glove door/box structure has to come off. Once it is off, the filter mount should be visible. The dealership charges about 200USD to 400USD for the job. It took me no more than an hour for my first attempt. Any subsequent attempt…s should be easier. Full instructions for an Acura RL can be found here and they are almost identical compared to my 2004 TL. http://www.acuraworld.com/forums/showthread.php?s=2eacf0dc3dde8d3ec11b868d05c94558&t=24702 . For the 2007 Acura TL, all you need to in order to change the dust and poller filter (also known as cabin air filter) is to remove two plastic clips (next to the trunk on/off switch) in the glove box. In order to remove them, push the inner hole. . Once those clips are removed, you have to pull the whole glove box assembly out. It could be hard since it's connected with a lot of clips. Once you remove it, you might have to unplug a couple of wires and you should see the front of the filter's cover. . (MORE)

Answer . follow the top radiator hose to the engine, where it connects is the thermostat housing, inside there is the thermostat. .

Answer . What year ACURA TL 3.2? Very important question because besides the strainer inside the fuel tank (which need not be replaced unless your fuel pump goes) on many of the newer models THERE IS NO FUEL FILTER!. No Kidding!! I'll say it again and save you hours if not days of aggravation tr…ying to find one; but THERE IS NO IN-LINE FUEL FILTER for many of the TL's (I believe from 2000 back there was one) *BUT I have a 2001 TL 3.2 and am SURE the is NONE! If yours is 2001 or newer pretty good chance there is none also. Hope this helps you a bunch!. Jevin (MORE)
For a 99 tl...in between the drivers side door and dash board there is a panel on the dash. It's not very noticeable but it is there.
http://www.acuraworld.com/forums/f66/rl-cabin-air-filter-replacement-diy-35824/ Check the address above, it give great detailed pictures. However, after looking at it, I think it may be best done by the dealership, and I am a fairly mechanical person. Best of luck - Glenn
There is no external filter on the 2000 tl--its internal to the transmission----you will have to flush the transmission-to clean the filter-or dismantel it. Lot easier to take to a dealership or local garage and have the transmission flushed..
The starter is located above the engine on the driver side underneath the exhaust manifold.
The fuse box in a 1996 Acura TL with a 3.2 liter engine are locatedin the kick panel on the driver's side of the vehicle. There isalso a fuse box under the hood on the driver's side of the vehicle.
The fuel filter is located in the fuel tank on a 2000 Acura 3.2 TL.The filter is attached to the fuel pump.
On a 2nd generation 1999 the PCV valve is located on rear valve cover (facing firewall) and the driver side under a little vinyl/rubber shroud. It may help to remove the rear bolts on the plastic engine cover to gain more access.
Hard to get to but right up under the throttle body. Facing he engine on the right hand side UNDER the TB.
It is located on the driver side fire wall, next to the brake resovoir. It is black and round and has a bolt with a metal line connected to it.
Hi, the sensor is located under the intake manifold. Try this link,. http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b54/loud_whispersPGM-FIComponents.png. Good Luck
You can find the answer to this question on about.com auto repair. The cabin air filters are located under the glove box in your car just above the blow motor. They will provide you with step by step instructions on how to change the cabin air filters.. I Have a 2002 Acura and my air flow is not wo…rking properly for the air conditioner. I changed the cabin air filters hoping this would solve the problem but it didn't. Are you having the same issues with your car? Please advise. (MORE)
The PCV valve on the 2001 Acura TL is located on the top of the rear valve cover. It's easy to replace - simply pull it out by hand and remove the attached hose. You have to remove the black plastic cover on top of the engine to access it.
The starter on a !996 Acura is on the passenger side near thefirewall. It is above the exhaust and is difficult to remove.
You need to remove the glove box. It is directly behind it. Requires two filters and pay attention to the air flow arrows.
The 2002 Acura airbag control module is located on the firewall inthe engine compartment. The airbag control module will be on thedrivers side of the firewall.
It's in a big black rectangle box behind the headlight on the driver side,you can't miss it.
I saw the answer for the 1997 3.2 tl and the 96 is the same generation, I assume it is located in the same place: engine compartment, driver's side on the firewall.
The cabin air filters (there are two) are behind the glove compartment. There are two fasteners on the sides of the glove box. They keep the glove box from flopping open. Find these...where they connect to the glove box, they snap in place. Press them toward the outside of the glovebox, and they'll …snap out of place. Allow the glove box to open all the way, and look for a small rectangular access door with a flat latch. Open this door, and you will see one filter. Pull it out, and the second can be slid into place to remove. The filters sit in plastic frames, which need to be cleaned and re-used on the replacement filter set. Once you get the glove box out of the way, it's easy to see how it all works. (MORE)
You don't need to cut the wires at all, I just got mine installed in 5 minutes with the adapter speaker plug, you can get them from Amazon or eBay for 16 bucks. You save a lot of time and you don't mess up the wire system of your car with the black tape and stuff.
Nonspecific question. Yes, you should replace them. Time, every 30K or sooner if driving in an area that is dusty/dirty. The HVAC pollen filter blocks dust/debris that enters the vehicles cabin from the outside air. Also blocks particles that are recirculated from inside the cabin when changed from …fresh air to recirculate. Another way you would know to replace the filter is if there is an odor from the dash vents or if the air from the dash vents is weak. Just like the filter on a homes HVAC system. (MORE)
I just change my cabin filter on a Lincoln ls 2000 . 1 ... open the hood 2 ... go to the passenger side and look exactly at the botom of the hood from the inside engine area . So at the END of the hood and passenger area you going to see a long cover that it has about 5 holders . Remove those holder…s with a plyer and remoce that long cover . There you will see the cobin filter .Pull it out and replace it with a new one . Put back the cover with those holders and you are finish. (MORE)
It's in the middle of the car, behind the center console (and just behind the left side of the glove box).

follow the lower radiator hose, you will see a housing which the hose is connected to. remove the hose. there are two bolts connecting the housing to the engine block. remove bolts and housing. behind the housing sits the thermostat. it's silver and fits in the engine block perfectly.
In the most miserable place to get a wrench to! Follow the lowerradiator hose back to the engine block. It should be right UNDERthe throttle body/air inlet. There are two 10mm bolts securing thetwo parts of the housing. Remove the temperature sensor, thenremove the two 10mm bolts. You can leave the …bolt with the groundleads attached. The lower rear bolt is a nightmare to reach but itcan be done. Good luck. (MORE)
acura doesn't call it that, they call it some kind of sensor assembly and it's on top of the trans. The part # for an 02 TL is 56500-P8E-A01, but you would need to call the local dealer with your VIN to make sure that's a correct fit for your car. They cost about $200.
You open the glove box. On the right hand side there will be a stop that keeps it from opening too far. Pop that black plastic stop out and let the glove box open all the way slowly as not to brake it. The cabin filter is behind a black horizontal "door" right behind the glove box.
Remove glove compartment by removing screws on each side. The really weird part is that you need to cut and disregard the metal bracket that is behind the glove box to get at the filter. Replace the box. Removing the bracket has no effect.
Open the glovebox. There should be two pins. if you press them in the glove box will open more (best to empty glovebox). There should be a 12" door, with some clips. Press the clips, and you'll find the cabin air filter. Could possibly be a bar in front of it. Those take about 45 minutes to do, just… a couple bolts. Hope this helps. (MORE)
Near the Passenger Front tire. No need to remove any sound panels underneath, just reach up & unscrew the filter
The cabin air filter is located behind the glove box. Remove the contents of the glove box, detach the three catches--one on each side of the glove box and one on the extension rail on the right side of the glove box. Once these catches have been released, the glove box will extend further downward …revealing the air filter tray up, behind the glove box. Pull the tray out (you'll need to maneuver the tray until it is completely free). Once out, you can remove the paper filter from the tray housing, note the "air direction" markings on the currently installed filter, install a new filter of similar make (ensure the air flow markings are in the same direction). Replace the air filter housing tray and reconnect the three clips. You're now able to replace the contents of the glove box and resume use of the air conditioner. (MORE)
The 1999 - 2006 acura tl's don't have a transmission oil cooler. no cooler lines to the standard radiator either. Phil
No Tools Required... - Open the glove box, now reach to the back top of the glove box and release the fabric that is attached to the velcro strip located on the bottom of the document holder. - open the document holder, empty, grasp by the front and gently pull forward releasing the holder from the …three clips along the top, rear edge of the holder. - you will now see the filter cover straight back where the document holder was located. - push the tabs on either side toward the middle and pull straight back. - remove old filter and install new filter, making note of the correct air flow direction. - reinsert filter assembly, making sure that is snaps firmly into place. - reinstall the document holder, lining up the three tabs and gently seating back into place. - push the fabric back into place onto the velcro strip on the bottom of the document holder.

There is no external fuel filter on the TL, like most new cars. The fuel quality has improved so much that manufacturers feel that there is no need for external fuel filters. Instead all there is, is a "sock" which is attached to the fuel pump and is not serviced seperately.
You dont.its internal so you would have to remove the trans to do this.so try drain,flush,and refill.good luck
More than likely.. it should fit but one way to find out is to take them both out an see if their wiring hook up is the same
Pontiac Aztek location - Back wall of glove box. There is a plastic door, that has the filter behind it.
Yes, it is under the hood, driver side, rear engine area, mounted on upper firewall area.
