Greetings viewers i am eric the car guy do you have a 2008 acura TL that needs a cabin air filter or in a cord of the same vintage this video will walk you through the steps on how to replace that yourself start by opening the glovebox after you've unhooked the damper on the

Side take both sides of the glovebox and squeeze them in and you can let the glovebox swing down its held in by these hooks on either side with the glovebox out of the way you now have access to these two screws and also these plastic

Clips you can remove these plastic clips by depressing the center and then prying the clip out I use a pocket screwdriver for this you can now remove the two Phillips head screws where you can also use an eight millimeter socket now that

You have removed all four fasteners you can remove the glove box assembly by pulling it straight out towards you you must also disconnect two electrical connections the blue one is the trunk release lockout and the gray one is for

The glovebox life with the glovebox assembly removed you now have access to the cabin air filter assembly located here you can remove the cabin air filter assembly by simultaneously depressing these plastic tabs and pulling the

Assembly towards you is way cleaner than I expected now replace the filter assembly be mindful of any arrows indicating the direction of airflow and match them up when installing the new filter this filter did not have any

Arrows indicating airflow direction but it was obvious that the filter could only be installed in one direction install the new filter and glove box assembly opposite of what you did during removal don't forget to reconnect the

Electrical connections before final installation of the glovebox assembly before pushing the glovebox assembly back in place make sure all the plastic clips are lined up reinstall the two screws before reinstalling the plastic

Clips you need to position them so they can go back into the hole I do this by spreading apart the bottom and then pushing forward to get it past the catch so that the top is sticking out and you'll see so long as that little piece

Is fitting in that groove and the top is protruding out the clip is ready to be reinstalled when installing the clip just push it into the hole and if it doesn't want to go in just move the end of the tab in and out a little bit and

It should go in it should go right in and then push the center portion flush and it's installed push in on the sides of the glovebox to get it to go back into place don't forget to reinstall the hook for the glovebox damper and that's
