How to Change the Cabin Air Filter on a 1995 Acura Legend


The cabin air filter on a 1995 Acura Legend allows a fresh and steady flow of clean air to travel through your vents. If your vents seem to be struggling to maintain a constant stream of air or have an unusual smell when air is circulating through them, it may be time for an air filter replacement. Typically, an Acura’s cabin air filter should be replaced every 12,000 to 15,000 miles, although this estimate can vary if you tend to drive in highly polluted areas or dirt roads. Cabin air filter replacement is one of the easiest maintenance tasks in vehicle ownership.

Tools Used: Tools, New cabin air filter for Acura Legend, Philips screwdriver, Shop cloth

Change Cabin Air Filter

Unscrew your glove compartment unit from the dashboard using your Phillips screwdriver. Gently pull the glove box away from the dash and set it aside.

Pull the black top from the slot, which contains an accordion-style air filter. You will want to have your shop rag ready for any dust and dirt that may fall from the filter.

Insert the new filter in the same direction that the old filter was placed in the slot. Be sure that the filter is pushed into the filter container completely for maximum effectiveness.

Lift the glove compartment unit back to its proper location and tighten the screws that fastened it in. Your cabin air filter change is complete.
