    Although this was done on a 2006 Honda Civic it is also the same basic technique for most Honda Cars.

    no tools needed
    Very Easy DIY

    Step #1
    -Open glove box and remove all contents.

    Step #2
    -Locate the hinge tabs (back of glove box) gently push the tabs in to allow for the glove box to drop down.

    Step #3
    -Right in-front of you will see a black plastic frame that will say "air flow with arrows pointing down." on each side of the frame there are 2 tabs.

    Step #4
    -Push the 2 tabs in and pull frame and filter out.

    Step #5
    -Push from underneath to pop the air filter out

    Step #6
    -Replace old filter with new filter making sure that the air flow arrows are pointing down, the filter should be a tight fit with no gaps between frame and filter.

    Step#7
    -Put the frame and filter back into slot making sure the "air flow with arrows pointing down" push back till you here a click(that will be the clips clicking into position).

    Step #8
    -Pull the glove box up and gently push in tabs on each side release the tabs they should now lock the glove box in.

    +1. I let the dealer do this one time during a #2 service. Air and cabin filters lightened my walled by $99. Stupid easy to do yourself.

    Some pics from the actual 9th gen

    Empty the glove box and push the sides in as shown:

    Do same to other side and let hang down.

    Remove the cover (push tabs on sides) and swap (make sure air-flow arrow points down):

    Awesome DIY...The only difference in the 2012 Civics is the frame. There is No filter frame in a 2012...after removing filter door you will have to slide out the filter and slide in the new filter, remember to keep rigid sides of the filter on the sides when replacing new one.
