    Takes seconds to replace.
    Clips on to cover cabin filter.
    Located behind glove box.
    Videos online, Google search “2018 honda civic cabin filter location”

    You don’t need to go into the dealer. I clip the glovebox down and like the other guy said. It’s the cabin filter cover. Snaps in.

    Those are cover just put it back it easy. Maybe your dealer forgot to tighten it. And you will learn how to change your cabin filter after you watch the video. Did you know changing the cabin filter it can cost to 100 to 200$ if im not mistaken.

    You are so right, my dealer kept asking me to let them change the cabin and engine filter for the low, low price of $129.00.... I declined and asked them nicely to stop asking me. If you pay full retail for these filters they cost about $15.00 each and are so easy to replace on your own. I typically remove mine and give them a through vacuuming which extends their life.

    Wow... $130 for something you can get for $12 on Amazon and replace yourself in 30 seconds. Oof

    I got my filter for 8.00 on Amazon,and if you go to the dealer and tell them the Air flow thing came out, they are gonna add at least another 50.00 to their already ridiculous price.

    I went to get a replacement cabin filter from the dealer last month, and they used to cost like $13-$15. Now they were asking $31 for a filter. Yeah no. Go get one from an auto parts store or online for cheap.

    All of the above posts are 100% correct. That piece can be snapped right back on as shown in the video someone posted as well, And as far as bringing the car to the dealer for a cabin or even engine filter replacement you should never do this because they charge as much as 15x what the price of the filter is just to replace these 2 items.
