I just got a 2003 Pilot, and was googling away... every good answer I got came back to Piloteers, so I figure, what the heck, I might as well join. :grin:
Thanks already for the shop manual download and the great discussion!
You're gonna hate me, but I picked up this '03 with 56k miles for $1000 - more of a gift from a good friend than anything else. It has a few little rust spots, and her dealer gave her a $5000 estimate for the 60,000 mile evaluation (that cost her $860) which looked to me like it was, um, padded a bit? I'm still waiting for the plates, so I can't look under the vehicle until next week (it's a few towns away still) but I'm pretty sure that the cracks in the boots don't require complete replacement of, oh, say, the axles and the control arms... tell me if I'm wrong.
It's cold up here in Boston, so I can't guarantee I'll post photos and stuff as I go through it, but I'll try.
The first project is going to be to try to bang out that nasty dent in the front bumper... >
