    Hi all,
    I've got a weird scenario with my 2000 HR-V (AUST model) where it seems as if my cabin filters have never been changed as i don't have a removable plastic cover? If you watch this clip

    , the piece he flips up from the bottom, I don't have that at all, but it does look like i could fit one there if i cut through the plastic to get to the filters, is this a mistake??
    I have been researching this for days now and I'm out of options :Frown:

    Pics attached, one of the engine bay in case someone can confirm the filter on top of the engine block is actually for the cabin filter in this model.

    @andy83 you are spot on mate the one on top of the engine is the main engine filter.
    Looking at the diagram parts 17-21 are the pollen filters I'm just trying to see where they actually fit in the unit.
    Do you think number 4 is the access door/panel.
    I'm thinking along the lines of having to remove the unit itself as the access panel could be against the bulkhead wall not on the outside as the photograph shows.
    Then we can help @jayem to get them out.

    I've just took a screen shot from the video above an you spot the difference

    Or am I wrong

    Ok so after speaking to Honda and a Honda specific wrecker today, I learned that the pollen filter in Australia was an optional extra, in my case there isn't any. Plus, the part marked 4 in that second diagram is the door which actually clips in to the piece you guys marked above.

    The annoying thing is the door is totally discontinued so a wrecker is my only option, does anyone have an idea of where to get the filter trays (preferably in Australia or Aus eBay)?

    Looks like I may need:
    4 (tray door)
    18 + 21 (trays)
    Possibly 19 + 20 (what are they anyway?)
    The filters are on eBay here for cheap, so that's easy.

    What site did you get that diagram from Andy?

    Cheers mate, looks like they have Aussie models too, in the attached image you can see it looks like I don't have any filters?
