I wonder if the Freestyle has one, if you guys think your moldy smelling AC is bad, try a 9 year old one that probably has dog hair in it. WOOOF does it have a FUNK to it. 

But you can add one....

After the Mod, use this filter (04'-'06 Honda Accord filter):

Wash the interior with a diluted batch of this:

It ought to be a fast project and very worth it. 

 

The directions for doing the filter change for the Flex are here, might be the same procedure for the Freestyle.

I probably should look into the filters on the HyTi and T since they are a year old now, though I rarely use the HVAC during the summer.

You don't even use the 'vent' function?  Any air passing thru the system can pollute the cabin filter.

90% of the time the system is off. I usually have the windows down and the sunroof at vent. It has been an unusually cool summer though, which accounts for a lot of it, Only on hot muggy days have I run the AC.

Found the exact filter at Farm & Fleet tonight.  This should help make a difference in the car.

Farm & Fleet is my favorite, though they are starting to stock more household items and less hardware at our local store.  I guess they feel they need to compete with Wal-Mart, which built a store across the street.

I hadn't heard of Farm & Fleet before. We have Fleet Farm here in Minnesota. They're like Home Depot, Menard's or Lowes. Is Farm & Fleet like that too?

They are similar and it is rumored that Farm & Fleet resulted from a family squabble but this is not true . Here is a link to a Rochester Post Bulletin article about them (skip down to the middle of the article):

Fleet Farm is my number one favorite store.

Blain's F&F was more oriented towards farming, but over the past few years the farm section has dwindled. It is moved towards the center  of the store and reduced to just a few aisles. I used to be able to find just about any part for repairing implements, but they don't stock nearly as much as they used to.  Their tool department has also downsized, not many woodworking tools left(same with Sears). I rarely shop there now unless I know they have something I need.  I did find something there that I was looking for years ago but could not find, and thats a PTO extension for my tiller. I was surprised to find it, and quite glad i did since the only ones I found were on line and cost $20 to ship due to weight. 

 

Since I no longer do my own oil changes, I dont know how their pricing is on Mobil 1, but in the past it was always the best deal there.

They still stock a lot of older tractor ignition parts and items that I fabricate for my TR7.  They used to stock a lot of steel bar, plate, rods, angle iron and the like that made it a welder's project dream, but they cut back on a lot of that stuff too.

That and pulleys and bearings and other items that I would use for projects/ I had to put a hold on a project I was planning since they stopped carrying them.  I designed a Poo Shaker for cleaning stalls, but since I couldn't get the parts locally I haven't gone anywhere with it other than a drawing.  I is a simple device two sheets of expanded metal one fixed, one moving back and forth so it sifts out the good stuff and leaves the lumps on top that move down and top and fall into the bucket. I needed a gear set, chain drive, and some links, but they no longer carried them, should have got them when they had them too.

Strangely, you sorta stayed on topic with those comments.  Poo Shaker.... really?

When I had horses I made the kids do that, they were the ones that wanted the darned hay converters.

My wife watched the 2nd video on youtube and just about changed the filter herself, for you diy ers this is not hard at all to change. but I do recommend  doing this on warm days so the plastic is not as brittle.

Anyone else snap off those clips like I did on the step where you move the plastic cover down before removing the filter? 

 

No?  Guess I was the Hulk that day.

Old thread, but whatever.

 

I just changed the cabin air filter in my wife's 2013 FFH.  Lots of nastiness in there.  Mice were making a home.  Absolutely filthy.

 

2nd change, and yes, I did snap off those clips.  One the first time, the other, this time.  Doesn't matter.  The screws hold it together.

 

What a pain in the butt, but  hopefully worth it.  Still love the car.

 

And, @klatoo, the proper spelling is klaatu...
