How do you change a cabin air filter on a 2001 Honda CR-V?

  • 1

    Open the glove box of your CRV. Remove the hinge tabs on each side of your glove box by prying them up. This will allow the glove box to swing into a completely downward position and will give you access to the filter compartment.

  • 2

    Slide the access panel's clip to the right. This clip is located on the left hand side of the access panel. Once the clip is moved, swing the access panel door fully to the right.

  • 3

    Pull the two filter trays straight out. Once they are removed, you can take out the old filters.

  • 4

    Place the two new filters in their respective trays. Note the directional arrows on the two filters and make sure they are laid in the filter trays in the right direction to ensure proper air flow.

  • 5

    Slide the two trays back into place and shut the access panel door. Also slide the access panel lock back into place.

  • 6

    Partially raise your glove box back up and re-insert the two hinge tabs on each side. Shut glove box once they are back in place.
