I ended up sending it to Southern Electronics in Richmond, Va. They have instructions on their site on how take remove the radio from yor Accord (very easy, just be gentle). Cost me $200 which is a lot better than the dealer. Quick turn around too. Good experience dealing with them. Www.carradio.com

#5810 of 5868 Deal From My Honda Dealer

I just received a coupon from my Honda dealer for a cabin air filter replacement for only $59.95.
I hope everyone here knows that you can purchase a filter for 12 to 15 dollars (you do not need a Honda brand filter) and install it in all of 5 minutes. You may get a little bit of dust on your hands.
A reasonable charge of 25 to 30 dollar for replacement by the Honda dealer would be much better for customer relations.

Well you have lower overhead than a dealer is the reason. He has to make X per hour on his line mechanics, no matter what they do. The labor rate is .4 of an hour + $21 for the part. So at the usual dealer rates these days of around $100/hr, the price makes sense.
Think of it as going to a restaurant for breakfast as opposed to you cooking it yourself.
Actually, changing that filter is probably easier than making breakfast.

I see people all the time, complaining about how much dealerships charge, to do this or that. IMO, if you are too lazy or unskilled to do it yourself, you have no right to complain about how much someone else is charging to do it for you. It's like the guy I saw in a store the other day buying a lottery ticket, and complaining that it was a ripoff? He didn't have to buy one.

While the info stated in #5807 is true (w/regards to Southern Electronics...); what U can also do, as I found-out recently, is buy the PC board from the Honda dealer. I paid a total of $200 plus tax, of which $125 is for core charge; returnable when U bring back the defective pc (printed circuit)board.
The instructions for installing can be gotten from the dealer or the internet...on google.

I changed the air filter in my daughter's 2007 Accord today. It was a bit difficult to remove the filter cover, but was even tougher to put it back. I finally removed the battery clamp and was then able to easily install the cover.

Yes, those filters can be a challenge. Good job. The next time will be easier.
