2002-2003-2004-2005-2006-2007 Honda Accord air filter replacement and coolant inspection

Doing the Accord Air Filter replacement procedure on a 2006 Honda Accord EX is a five minute job. Simply unscrew the four screws as shown in the photo below and gently pull up the air filter housing. You don’t need to disconnect the air snorkel, pulling it up gives you enough clearance to swap out the engine air filter. I recommend the K&N air filter replacement.

Unscrew the air filter housing in the four places shown and then lift the cover up enough to access to the engine air filter element.

Coolant check procedure:
To check your coolant level, while the car is cold and off examine the coolant reservoir as shown in the photo below. There’s a minimum and maximum indicator line, make sure the coolant is in that range. Pretty simple.

The correct coolant level, between minimum and maximum

Use a 50/50 mix of Anti-freeze and distilled water for the proper cooling mixture. It’s OK if the ratio is off slightly like 40/60 or 60/40.

2002-2003-2004-2005-2006-2007 Honda Accord EX cabin air filter replacement

Here’s the procedure to replace the cabin air pollen filter in your Honda Accord in less than three minutes. I managed to remove and reinstall the filter with one hand while holding the camera in the other – so you should have no problems tackling this easy job.

I ordered our replacement cabin air filter on Amazon; shipping is free when you spend over $25. It saved us since I bought the Cabin Air Filter, K&N High Performance Replacement Air Filter, and Engine Oil Filter all at once. The K&N is a nice little upgrade, it will make an extra horse or two and will most likely last the life of the car.
