The original part from Honda has a list price of about $30. Aftermarket (Purolator) is about $15. I am not sure where it is in the CT. I know on my Lexus the filter is behind the glove box and sort of a pain to replace. I thnk you paid standard dealer rates.

No one should ever pay the dealer to replace the cabin air filter! 100 dollars is way more than the 69 my dealership was asking and I still wouldn't pay it. The cabin air filter is located behind the glove box and is very, very easy to replace. NO TOOLS REQUIRED! Probably the easiest thing to replace on the entire car. You open the glove box, and unlatch the hook on the far right. The glove box moves out of the way and the air filter is right there. You pull it out, replace, then close everything back up.

No problem... I forgot to add that when you unlatch the hook, you push in on the sides of the glove box to bring it all the way down... I just went downstairs to double check... I learned where it was from my 08 accord lol... Its insane how they charge ppl ridiculous amounts of money just because the manual doesn't tell you where it is..

Great post, thanks!!!

A few weeks ago when I had the oil changed, the "dash codes" said I needed to replace the cabin air filter. My lucky day - only $65. No thanks, service advisor guy - I'll figure it out.

Anyway, I read this a few minutes ago, went out, opened the glove compartment and had the filter out in a grand total of MAYBE 40 seconds.

Since I don't smoke, never BBQ in my Crosstour and duststorms are sort of rare during the winter in Utah, it really wasn't that dirty. A good blast with the air hose - good as new.

So there's $65 for my lift ticket next Sunday. Last ski day of the year for me...

Why?

The one thing I look for when replacing a cabin air filter is making sure it has charcoal in the filter. It really does make a difference in quality of the air in your cabin.

Another thought I have is why do cars now have a cabin air filter. As soon as you roll down the window or open the door you have completely contaminated the Cabin air.

So, my question is do we really need a cabin air filter? :confused:

I would think that the only reason for a cabin air filter is when you put the air on recirculate. Could also helps those with allergies, if its a really good pollen filter maybe. Otherwise, how much is it really helping... depending on the quality of your air filter - little to alot. If your windows are cracked or down... and the air is on.. then not at all. I would think its like your home AC/Heater system, if you have a good filtration (bacteriostatic / hepa, etc.) it helps alot, in deep winter and summer when most of us have doors and windows closed. During spring and fall when we crack open the house, then not so much... I will have to check into the actual quality of the cabin filter that the CT uses.

Pedro,
I checked the glove box but can't figure how to unlatch the hook. In my 05 Avalon there was a screw to remove. No such thing in the CT. I must be mechanical challenged.

Great post! After getting to the filter to my surprise there was so much build up of leaves, dust and bugs no wonder there was a little oder coming from the vents. I will be ordering a filter to see if that clears up the smell. Thanks for the explanation on how to get to it, that was so easy! lol.

Lol my bad you probably figured it out by now but you push the latch with your thumb. Once it's unlatched you push in on the walls of the glovebox and allow for it to fall out of the way. You will then see the cabin air filter and there are no screws to remove. Just pull it out, replace, and close everything back up. Just remember to reattach the hook or the glove box will drop very hard when you open it.

I must be glove boxed challanged!!! Which direction do you push with your thumb? I broke the glove box clips on my CRV trying to change the filter..don't want to do the same to the latch!
