I could be wrong, but from what I remember the 98 doesn't work that way. I'm pretty sure there is a filter though. Have you noticed a drop in air flow? Clogged up filter could be the cause. Try doing a search for the 98 filter replacement. I'm sure there's a how-to on the internet somewhere.

thanks elroy5 - that was easy enough (finding the directions I mean). Seems a bit involved but I'll give it a shot. Another question: Are you good with going 5 thou between oil changes? (98 V6 Accord 110,000 miles). thanks again - dayll

That's fine with me, if you're not exceeding the owner's manual recommendations. Since my 03 V6 is driven mostly short trips (less than 5 miles/ severe conditions) I change my oil every 3,000 miles (which is only 750 miles less than the recommendation in the owner's manual). The oil seems to get dirty quickly in this engine, so the oil is a dark brown already at 3,000 miles. Since I change the oil myself, it doesn't cost me that much.

Thank you Elroy5. I too do my own oil changes but I'm getting lazy. I'm sitting in my garage looking at the oil and filter on a shelf but I think I'll clean my golf clubs. thanks again - dayll

Almost 98-02 accords had cabin air filters as long the car had a/c.
However accessing that cabin air filter is not easy. It is at least an hour long job for most folks. It entails removing the the whole glove box area of dashboard apart.
Not only are removing the glove box itself but also the crash pad and trim pieces under nearth the glove box too Along with several metal reinforcement bars in the dash. All told one removes about 15-20 screws to get to it.

Thanks rbenton - since it so involved replacing the filters and since my A/C and fresh air intake seems good as ever guess I'll just leave it alone for now. dayll

I changed the cabin filter and the air filter on my own in my dad's 2007 CR-V a month or two back, and I had no idea how easy it was. I had ordered the parts from http://www.handa-accessories.com/. I had been meaning to make a post on how I cheaped out my dad's 30k service over on the CR-V maintenance forums because I had been so used to spending a few hundred bucks on 30k/60k/90k/etc services like I had been doing w/ my own Accord. My 2004 Accord EX SEDAN w/ NAVI is 117,995 miles and I'm due do deal with at least the Cabin Filter soon. I'll follow the advice in this thread, although I'm pretty sure it's similar to how you handle the 2007 Honda CR-V's cabin filter.
