The air filter in the Honda Civic SI prevents dirt and debris from entering the engine to ensure good performance. Honda recommends replacing the air filter in the Civic SI once every 30,000 miles under typical driving conditions. If the car is frequently used in dusty areas, check the air filter more often. These instructions pertain to the 2010 Honda Civic SI, but the procedure for replacing the air filter in the Civic SI is similar for most model years.
