We can only hope that this is not as bad as it seems. Sometimes the actual job is not a difficult as the instructions make it out to be. Who wants to go first and find out??

On the Honda Pilot I traded in, for the first filter change the instructions required the cutting and removal of a metal support bracket!!!

WTH so honda expect people to do this every time they need to change the filter? I have a hard time believing it. It would be more believable if they just wanted you to unbolt it.

Which metal support bracket are you talking about? the one right behind the bumper to take the impact?

He didn't have any filters yet but when I get one I'll change it and take some pics.

I just bought a Certified Pre-owned 2013 Escape 3 days ago. I attempted today to remove the cowl because its pretty dirty and the screens that let the air in are dirty and caked with pollen. I got all of the clips off and the nut that holds down the wiper arm, but I could not get the wiper arm off. Could you please tell me how you got your wiper arms off?

Thanks

Yeah they are on pretty tight. You have to pop them off with a small gear puller. Got mine at advance for a few bucks.

Here's another tip. The wipers flop all over the place when the ignition is off. You'll never get them back on in the correct position unless you turn the car on first. I tried to get them lined up right about 10 times before I figured this out!

Definitely a true paint in the arse!

I've seen some pretty nasty cabin filters in my time. You want to change those suckers every few years.

Thanks for the help. I have a small gear puller so I will try this out this week as well as the filter.

Thanks!
