According to the attached picture of 2003 Honda Pilot transmission, there is a filter marked as item number 8. I am not sure if it is a serviceable item though.

Some Piloteers have serviced the filter, but I can't seem to find that thread.

I changed the filter on my '05 and posted the process here

2005 Pilot ATF Filter Replacement

The 03 and 04 use a slightly different filter as does the 06-08 with the four shaft trannys. The process is quite easy, and you could find some nice DIY for the 03 and 04 over at odyclub.org which has the same filter design.

Default ATF filter on 06-08

As far as I can see, to change the ATF filter on 06-08 you will have to drop
the transmission and open up the transmission case. Not sure why Honda made is so difficult on the 06-08 models!

Well, Honda does not consider the filter to be a serviceable item. Probably used almost exclusively for diagnostic purposes on failed transmissions. I have done the filter change on a 2003 and 2005 model and it took me less than an hour, but I dont have direct experience on the newer models.

It is almost straight down under the intake pipe that runs from the airbox to the intake manifold. If you peek in between the battery and engine with a bright light you can just barely see the cylindrical body of the filter.
