I believe starting in 2006 the tranny filter is only accessible with the tranny separated from the engine.

I don't think that the 2008 Pilot had the BVGA transmission? That transmission was used in 2003, and maybe 2004?

I just tried to look up this detail, and I confess that I am unable to determine online just what transmission was used in your Pilot. I do know that the early BVGA used in 2003 was modified year-by-year to address reliability issues. Gear ratios were changed, clutch pack diameters changed, lubrication was improved-first with an external oil pipe, and later with internal changes. The computer programming that controls the transmission was also updated and changed from year to year. If you are shopping for a replacement unit, make sure that your supplier is able to accurately determine that the unit will work on your Pilot.

I am not necessarily suggesting that you purchase a used transmission, but you can use the search engine on the used parts website car-part.com to check on compatibility. Enter in the details of your Pilot and search for used transmissions available. Compatible types and years for your Pilot will be displayed.

Did you get any clarification on this in the end? I have an 06 and I’m hoping I can replace it
