After ~1.5 years, got to changing oil, oil filter, and both air filters. Interestingly, one online video showing the removal of the glovebox and the side panel is excessive and unnecessary for the cabin air filter.
1. Oil filter: not much room here and mine was a bear to remove, but finally broke it free. I have 4 different oil filter socket wrenches and none fit it properly; one kinda fits but spins under torque. Anyone know a good oil filter wrench that fits the FL910S filter well?
2. Oil filter drain plug - interesting that the Cmax oil drain plug seems to bottom out, basically preventing over-torquing as it seems to seat perfectly against the oil drain pan housing.
3. Cabin air filter: While you do need some yoga maneuvering, the cabin filter is accessible by removing only two items: the fabric cover beneath the glovebox and the plastic filter housing cover (mine had no retaining screw, but I suspect most come with a single cover screw). Patience is a must.
4. Engine air filter: relatively easy, but the most tedious engine filter I've replaced yet; even dropped a bolt within the engine bay that I was fortunate to find using a telescoping magnet. Removing air induction hoses and no fewer than 13 bolts/clips is a little ridiculous, but doable. Almost looks like there might be enough room to simply unscrew the 5 main filter housing screws, but the rear one may not have clearance (although I might try that way next year, but...might simply be easier to remove all the same parts since it's only a once-per-year project).
Anyone know what their dealer charges for changing the two air filters?
