Default what are other drain plugs on Pilot Transmission

I noticed there are other drain plugs on Pilot transmission. On one side there is standard drain plug which is being used to drain ATF but on the other side there are two drain plugs. I was guessing they might be used to drain other portions of Transmission like torque converter etc. I did not open them. Does any one know what are they. But if that was the case the replacing all the fluid in one shot will be easy.

Regards,

Don't touch anything other than the real drain plug. Just in case its holding some piece internally.

I'd like to know this one as well. I did notice them the other day when I was changing my engine oil. And I also have only touched the one with the 3/8" socket nut.

Default Any one with Service Manual or any such site

Some Tech who has the transmission service manual or even third party honda service book should be able to tell what are those. I know other brands like Nissan have free pdf s available for servicing different parts ( e.g. pdf for changing timing belt/ water pump etc) . Is there any such site for Honda Pilot as well.

Regards?

I doubt there are extra drain plugs on the transmission that are not mentioned in the Honda's service manual and that thousands of others have missed over the years, but you're just discovering.
