If your Civic is equipped with a dust and pollen filter, it needs to be changed periodically. This filter sits behind the glove box and is responsible for filtering the air that makes its way into the cabin. Over time, the filter will clog up with dirt, dust and debris. As that happens, the airflow through the filter is reduced. You’ll also find that your windows fog up more easily. Replacing the filter isn’t easy, and Honda does not recommend you do this on your own as it requires a significant amount of teardown to reach the filter.
