Couple of weeks back, I accidentally stumbled upon a listing of cabin filter for Honda Civic on Amazon and did a research on Youtube on how to replace it. Placed the order quickly and fixed it. As mentioned, it is a direct fit and takes less than 5 mins to fix them.

They donít forget to add the filter. They purposely leave it out to save a few bucks.

Indian cars go through a lot of cost cutting compared to their international variants and almost all manufacturers leave out things like cabin air filter, rear washer/ wiper, driver arm rest and centre console, safety equipment like AirBags, ABS , etc.

Hello sir, thanks a lot for the DIY. It is simple, but effective. My Grandpa got a Honda Mobilio S i-VTEC about 6 months ago. I was under the impression that it comes with an OEM cabin filter until I read this thread. After reading this thread, I started noticing that there is a lot of dust in the car and the car stinks. This will be a welcome addition to the car, but I have one question. Can I get this air filter online? I tried asking some accessories shops here in Trivandrum but nobody had it. Any information on this will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, In Chandigarh the filter is available at the bosch service centre. Maybe you can locate one in your city and they can help.
They have a tie up through bosch and can procure all parts from respective dealers also if required.

I'll do one thing, I'll give you the dimensions of the filter. I'm guessing that will make the task of hunting it down easier.

Dear OP,

First of all, Thank you for the DIY!

My Brio is 8 months old and usually pass through lot of dusty places and thus the cabin filter is a must.

After seeing your post, I went to the Honda ASS (Peninsular Honda, Trivandrum) and asked them to try to fit in the filter of Honda City T3.

They said they will try. When I went back in the evening to collect my car, they told me that they tried fitting it but it was making a lot of noise (as the filter was not locked) and hence they removed it.

I said OK and went to the passenger side and disassembled the glove box as mentioned by you, in front of the service guy.

To my surprise and his embarressment, they hadn't even touched the place!

He then started to play around saying that if anything happens to blower, your warranty will be void etc.

I said OK, and decided in my mind that I will do it myself. "DIY"

My question.

1. Does cutting the box open and putting the cabin filter voids warranty?
2. Is the blower fan right below the space where you keep the filter, without any mesh/ protection to blower?
3. If yes, what are the chances that the filter will damage the blower fan?

Thanks,
Nish

Now I have peace of mind breathing clean air.

Thanks!

I'm interested in this DIY to but had anybody felt any difference in the blower performance after installing the filter. I mean is the blower designed to work with the filter.

Hi, I felt no considerable difference in the blower performance. However, the air quality has improved drastically.

As someone mentioned in the thread, by installing the filter, we are saving on the cost of overhauling the blower/AC unit due to dust clogging.

I can't comment on the blower 's capacity under the filter load, but installing the filter gives you peace of mind!

After all, our health is much much valuer than blower, isn't it?

In my 2013 Camry the OEM filter has direction arrows pointing UP. If you take out the installed filter, the dirty side is at the top so that implies that the air is flowing from top to down. Hence, be sure about the air flow direction in the filter so that you don’t adversely impact the filtration efficiency and airflow inside the cabin.

I don’t understand why are the Indian manufacturers skipping cabin filters, the saving are not worth peoples health. In view of the rise in pollution I think people should start demanding cabin filters at least as an important accessory.

hi Rokindotnish,

the Bosch cabin filter you used was around 2K while the original DIY post says it is Rs.400 - what is the difference in the quality of cabin filter of Bosch vs. the one costing 400 bucks?

The 2k one is the activated carbon filter which removes the foul odor from the air.

I have just ordered two filters - one for my Brio and One for the Civic from Altech through Amazon for ₹695 each. I have an imported FRAM in the latter for about four years (about ₹2100). I wonder how many weeks will the Activated Charcoal in the expensive ones remain effective. I expect the filter to last for about two years at least. Remember in the City the change interval is two years. The Honda OE filters do not have the 'coal'.

During the recent service I got a call from the ASS who wanted to do a stage 1 service of the AC claiming the evaporator was choked. I told them to forget it, since they are silly not to provide any filters (sealed box) and then want to rob us. In any case without a filter there is no real point, airflow is still acceptable.
