Well, I suspected that I wasn't getting a lot of air flow from the HVAC system. So, while changing the oil and doing a few other repairs, I changed the cabin filter.
Service Manual says every 5 years or 60k miles!
This is after 2 1/2 years and 16k miles.
So, I think I will start doing this one every year, like my other vehicles. Even though this one is a pain to replace. smile
Air even smells better. thumbsup

We get tons of ac complaints when all that is wrong is a plugged filter.

I do a file touch up on my OEM John Deere blades at ~ 15 hours and then remove the blades and do a bench grinder sharpening at 25 hours. ed

Good choice. I change the Accords once a year. Honda placed it in the glove box so it's super easy to replace.

And here I was thinking I'm the only one who does this when the HVAC in the car is not working properly.

Nice area. BUT, huge Locust tree in my yard has tiny leaves that get into bad places.
