I want yellow, wife wants white. Since I'm the one that drives it, I'm thinking it will go yellow soon.

Or perhaps something more understated, yet no less swashbuckling and suave.

Here is the location of the tranny fill port on the 2005 Pilot. The view is from looking down from the driver's side fender. I just took this today after doing a tranny drain and fill as well as changing out the tranny filter.

Nope, no fill port. Like the other guy mentioned, there is something else connected in that location on the 03's

Still here? I hope so....

I found some good pictures of it on the net. This is from an MDX forum- same thing though.

From the front or the driver side, look behind the throttle body- toward the firewall/windshield/cab.
Look straight down with a light. It's usually painted a different color, and I think it says 'fill' on the casing ear it too?

Here's another one- you can see the brake fluid master cylinder too to give you a reference

*** NOW that you've found it, it is a 17mm nut head, and you'l need some LONG extensions so you can put your ratchet above. Putting it down there- you'll never get it loose- no room.
I end up using a compo of 3/8 and 1/2 extensions and Adapters.
*** Then, you'll need a cheater bar, or a pipe on the ratchet- this thing is always REAL tight!
When it gives, it will sound like you broke something! LOL- you probably didn't.
Put some grease or antiseize on it when replacing. Don't put it too tight. It's on top, it won't leak!

I use an old piece of garden hose on my old funnels and pour away!
There are funnels sold at Auto part stores, walmart that are long and work too.
This is actually my pic from my thread, and using Valvoline Maxlife ATF.

* Again- that fill cap screw iw REALLY tight! You'll need lots of force, cheater bars, etc.
It doesn't have to be THAT tight, it's on top, it won't leak just snugging it up good.

HTH!

Thanks for the pics! Like road2cycle said "If your Pilot is an Ohthree it likely has the oil jet placed in the tranny fill port location. That was Honda’s fix for tranny issues on the earlier first gen Pilots." This is the case with my 03'

I'll grab a pic of what my 03' looks like for reference.

Nice, didn't even know you could get those off easily.

Now about that emblem...

Replaced my headlights with a black lense version because I absolutely hate chrome. And I found out my radiator has already been replaced with a Denso version 🤘🏻

Looks very nice on 2003-2005 model year headlights. (y)

I want to hear your clip story. How many of the original clips were you able to reuse, and/or with what did you replace the ones you couldn't?

Where'd you get the black headlights? They'd look awesome on my dark blue 04. I bought some generic headlights from Amazon last year because the originals were badly yellow, hazed, and full of water every time it rained. I'm not overly happy with the beam pattern of the generic ones and would like to replace them, and the black ones look cool.

I got mine from carid.com
