lol cabin filter is easy as pie to change...
you have to remove 2 screws on the bottom of the glove box(to remove it entirely), than you just pull it out...

The fuck are you taking screws out for? Empty the glove box, with it open push the top sides inward and the whole thing swings down out of the way with more than enough room to swap filters. Noob.

Ha ha! facepalm... maybe i should've checked a DIY before doing... but i was also trying to fix the dash rattle, so i figured it would give me more space... eitherways, i think it demonstrates that you don't need to take your FIT to the dealer to change the cabin filter... it's about as easy as changing the engine filter...

Ordered another hood liner and clips x2 to repalce the liner on the OEM hood and put one on the CF hood. Also ordered the rubber piece because the guys tore it up trying to get the clips out! Ouch! Darn Honda Fit clips! Will get both hoods fixed up and then it will make swaping them out much easier in the winter and fall.

PS Honda just called - the guys that did my new rims - put too much air in my tires - that is why I was having some steering issues! Thanks! Then since they had the car even though I've never received my recall notice - they fixed the power switch - without me asking plus they checked the balance on the tires since the guys who put them on are not uses to working on a Honda - they were out of balance- crap! I thought it was just me but told them the car was handling differently! Lester Raines Honda - they go above and beyond!!!!
Your dealer does sound great. As for replacing the cabin filter, it takes 2 minutes to do it yourself, so next time just buy a replacement from bernardi or college hills or whoever sells it the cheapest and DIY. No point in paying any money to the dealer if it's so simple. https://www.fitfreak.net/forums/fit-...placement.html

And due to the way the housing is designed, it still looks like crap with a good LED bulb in it. I know because I tried it. I may pony up the dough for the JDM piece sooner or later, but I would rather get my CF hood first......

I rotated my tires, adgusted my tire pressure, and touched up the paint on my rotors. The paint wasn't too bad but it looks like it was starting to flake off a little bit. I scrubbed the rims super clean. Now they're shiny again.

At what air pressure are you setting them at? I have mine at 28 PSI and thinking about seeing how they will do at closer to 20PSI. I don't want it up any higher than it is without air shocks but at 28PSI I was able to do my restocking of groceries at Sam's Club without my headlight pointing upward on the drive home.

It is almost around the clock A/C season but it has been cooler than usual for this time of year..... Once it starts getting up into the 90s and above my driving enjoyment isn't anything like it is when it is cooler.
