I call it a compressor hose adapter, but I don’t know Honda’s name for it.

Is it cracked, or just won’t come off?

Mine was tough to remove. I ground down a 5.5mm socket for maximum grip, and removed one bolt. I had to cut the head off the other.

Thanks for the reply. it just won't come off it's a huge pain in the tail right now. Both the bolt heads are stripping. So I will probably have to cut the heads off and replace the bolts. But I have to find out what the thread pitch is to replace them

You might have to get them from Honda if they’re available, at least the one that sits in that depression in the adapter. I’d try to save at least one.

I ground down the face of the socket to where I had a sharp, clear hex shape.

The cover plate of my new compressor had the right pitch bolts, just too long and the head of those bolts would never have gone into the depression in the adapter.

I’ll find the ones left over, check thread pitch and get back to you, probably tonight.

I recommend putting a punch mark in the dead center of the bolt head, and slowly, carefully drilling it until the head of the bolt spins off.
