Need Help With 2015 Accord V6 Air Filter Replacement

Hello All - I'm trying to replace the air filter in my Accord as it has about 35K miles and is due for a change. I ordered the filter from Amazon and received it but when trying to remove the old filter, I'm having issues. I found the two metal clips to detach easily but it is still held down by some plastic pieces which I'm not sure how to pop out of place. Can anyone suggest a youtube video or pics to help me out? Thank you!!

Do a search for instructions on how to replace. There are numerous threads on how to change the air filter on a 9th gen V6.

Thanks. I did do a search and links came up but none really had any videos or pictures to help guide. Mainly the threads were just about purchasing the filter...

Try again. I not only saw instructions, but links to youtube videos.

Why would anyone be hesitant to go to the YouTube page, type the magic words "2015 Honda Accord V6 Air Filter change" and see the results right before your eyes?

It really is not that difficult.

Dude - there are a lot of people that would rather spend more time with a response telling you how you negligently didn't search for instructions versus just telling you.

The air box is a little tricky as a lot of vehicles are. Once getting the metal clips off, you need to sort of lift up and pull towards you (assuming you are standing on driver's side of vehicle). Once you get it off, you'll see how it works. Last time I replaced mine, I didn't need to completely remove the top part of the airbox. Just lift the lid up after taking metal metal clips loose and that should be enough room to pull the old filter out and put the new one in. Shouldn't be a need to fully pull the top part of airbox off.

FYI - I did type that exact wording into youtube and no videos that matched my 2015 v6 accord came up...most are for the 4 cylinder...but thanks for the criticism and not providing me a link that works. Searched tons of videos on youtube, nothing. I'm not great with cars, just didn't feel like overpaying at the dealer again and thought I could find some help here.

See response above. Do NOT pay a dealer to do this. I did that once with the air filter replacement (even though I am mechanically inclined) - had it in for an oil change and they convinced me to replace the filter and I ignorantly agreed at a charge of $65 (cost of filter + $35 IN LABOR for a 1 minute procedure...unbelievable ripoff).

You're not going to break anything. The plastic the airbox is made of is tough stuff. So is the air hose. Just lift up on the airbox - it should be enough room to get filter replaced.

Thank you AccordULEV for the helpful response! I think I'll just try and slide the old filter out after unclipping the 2 metal clips. I was a bit confused because all of the others videos had the entire box coming off.

Thanks cookieman214 but I had seen that thread. The youtube link provided in the thread is in fact not for a 2015 Accord V6. I think I know what to do. Thanks.

Actually, "dude," we don't have time to send the type of response you are referring to. And, if we didn't care about the OP's question, we wouldn't respond at all. In addition, there wasn't the slightest insinuation that the OP "negligently" didn't search for instructions. The sincere intent was to help him help himself. That's what this forum is all about.
