How do you change the cabin air filter in a Honda Pilot?

For 2009 or later Honda Pilot, it is very easy - a 5 minute job - and no tools required. The filters are around $25 from Honda (80292-SHJ-A41) but much cheaper after market.

  1. Empty and open the glovebox.
  2. Press the 2 tabs on the sides.
  3. Swing the glovebox ALL the way towards the floor so the opening behind the glovebox is fully accessible.
  4. Inside the opening is a black tray - around 8" square. Press the 2 "tabs" on each side of tray and pull the tray out.
  5. Put the new filter in with the arrow on the side of the filter facing DOWN towards the floor.
  6. Slide the tray back in.
  7. Close the glovebox.

I changed mine at 19K and it was VERY dirty. I would recommend changing every year - especially if you have allergies.

For 2008 and older - you need to cut the plastic tab and take out screws.

Windshields and Wipers

How do you change the rear wiper blade on a 2004 Honda Pilot?

First-off, the 2004 Honda Pilot has a special rear arm and you need a wiper with an "B" attachment. You can go to your dealer or I know Trico makes a model 14-B (Exact Fit Rear Integral Blade 14-B). There may be others available too. Application guides are at the store or you can 'lookup wiper size' online to find other options/part numbers. I've got the Trico on my Jeep and it fits/works great.

The replacement rear wiper blade will come with step-by-step, illustrated instructions and once you have the instructions and the wiper blade/arm in your hands in front of you, it will all make better sense and will an easy maintenance task.

Essentially, you rotate the blade to the side and then snap off the blade. The new blade snaps on in the reverse order. Very simple and takes 2-5 minutes usually not requiring any tools.

How do you change the map light bulb on a Honda Pilot?

use a tiny screwdriver to pop off the plastic piece that you push to turn the light on, then the bulb just pops out

1. Find the "hinged" side of the plastic light cover (the side that doesn't go up and down.)

2. Insert the tip of a flat-head screw-driver between the plastic light cover and the surrounding frame. The tip should be on the side of the hinge, about 1/4" away from either corner. The cover will pop right out.

3. Use your screwdriver to pop out the light bulb.

My EX-L required a 12V-8A bulb.

How do you install a tailgate spoiler on a Honda Pilot?

Since asking this question, I have found the answer.

The tailgate is secured by 3 shoulder bolts which are attached to the back side of the spoiler. These bolts can be removed by removing 3 nuts on the inside top of the tailgate using an 10 mm hex socket The center bolt is located behind a rubber grommet.

To install the tailgate, install the shoulder bolts in the three slotted areas on the back side of the spoiler. Insert the bolts through the holes in the tailgate and secure the nuts. There are three rubber cushions/washers that go between the spoiler and the tailgate.

Electric Windows

How do you fix a drivers side electric window on a 97 Honda Passport?

The first step involves removing compleletely the door panel. Running the lower half and bottom are screws covered by approximelty one inch plates that pop off. Also screws in the arm reset and plate of the door handle must be removed. After removing all the screws holding the panel and poping the panel loose, it is puched upward and toward the rear of the vehicle. The entire window regulator is replaced as a unit. as simple as this piece looks it will cost over $100.00 dolars. The existing regulator is held in place by three hexhead bolts/screws attacged to the door and two hexhead attached to the lower porpotion of the window. After removing the screws, work the regulator out through the upper rear hole just below the door lock. The new regulator is replaced through the same hole. Be aware that it takes some time and patience to get the regulatlors in and out of the opening. IPY in Fresno

How To

How to shut off the air bag warning light on a Honda Pilot?

There is a procedure for re-setting the airbag light without special tools. Rather than trying to explain it here, just do a Google search. YouTube has videos showing the procedure too. Do not take your car to Honda to have impact sensors and airbag control units replaced just for this unless you determine that that is necessary. The original answer to this question incorrectly advised people to do that.
