Replaced my 225k ATF Filter- Next AC Diagnosis continuation and Repair 🤭🤞🤞
Yeah... I disagree on 'easier'. First, the screws on mine were tight enough that a phillps screwdriver wasn't doing anything. Second, on the right hand side, its way too tight with the fuse box there to get my impact driver in. Third, there was barely enough room for a socket and a wrench with the fuse box where it is. Fourth, you're working blind, or at least I was.Same for the 2006 and 2007 I've done it on, and pretty sure it's the same on all 1st gens. That one improvement they made on the second gens.
Here's the method I used, with a how-to literally from the archives of the internet.

Or I can just put the screw back in, as I always do.The anti-seize is not for the hub screws, but to keep corrosion from causing the wheels to stick to the rotors.
If you left the hub screws out and put anti-seize on the back of the wheel, some of might fill the hole where the hub screw normally goes and prevent the mud/dirt you were worried about from filling that hole.
But summer isn't until next month.installed my summer tires.
Does it do anything to try to pop the hood from inside? Maybe a dumb question 🤷♂️Valves are all adjusted, engine feels great. Anyone else get their hood latch stuck shut after they took it loose from its mount? I just need to figure out why it's stuck shut. The release handle in the cab works fine, but it doesn't seem to be actuating the rotating lock mechanism that holds the hood fully shut. It's stuck in the closed position, and I don't see why it won't move. Thankfully, the hood isn't fully closed so I can get it open at will, just can't get it to accept the bar part of the latch.
Anyone have any thoughts on this?
Same here. I ordered this one off Amazon: Meguiar's Heavy Duty Headlight Restoration Kit - G2980C [New Version] - Headlights stay clear for one year: Amazon.ca: AutomotiveToday I sealed my headlights with Meguiar's headlight sealant. Nothing special. But I put up a trampoline!
Also, one of the map light switches didn't work so I pulled it and cracked it open out of curiosity if I could clean it up but, burnt and melted. New ones on the way from China now, $5.The other night I also replaced the interior lights with 6k LED. $20 off ebay in China and only a couple weeks to get here. I like it nice and bright.
To each his own, but to me that looks like the harsh emetic light that hits you when you walk into a subway station after an evening at a bar.The other night I also replaced the interior lights with 6k LED. $20 off ebay in China and only a couple weeks to get here. I like it nice and bright.

That's a good fix that is easier than a lot of people who ignore it think.Also, one of the map light switches didn't work so I pulled it and cracked it open out of curiosity if I could clean it up but, burnt and melted. New ones on the way from China now, $5.

Yeah I agree it's a personal preference for most. I saved the old bulbs incase we change our minds. Right now I'm liking the bright fresh look, plus they might help keep me awake and wake sleepy passengers during long drivesTo each his own, but to me that looks like the harsh emetic light that hits you when you walk into a subway station after an evening at a bar.
Same here, took about 45min. my first time and get it done now in about 25min. Good thing is that it's a very large filter (as far as cabin air filters go) and if you run with the recirculate on you won't be pulling in outside air (like pollen etc.. this time of the year) thus keeping it cleaner for longer. I change mine every year (after the pollen season) and if you stick to running in recirculate mode you could probably go every two years.Yesterday I de-moused it. Saturday I changed the cabin filter and remembered why I paid someone to do it the last time. Honda usually engineers things well. I have no idea who's idea it was to decide that metal bar needs to be in the way, and who decided to angle the glove box screws backwards. It took 45 minutes with me working blind. I tried lying on the passenger seat with my head under there and almost passed out. Then I tried my cellphone and the camera, but my hands kept getting in the way. I'm thinking if there's a next time, cut out a section of the metal bar, and then get some replacement metal and drill bolt holes so that all I have to do is drop the glove box and unbolt the center section.
The cable moves, I can feel the resistance. I watched several YouTube vids on the issue, and apparently it's just stuck due to age and corrosion. When I get home from work I'm going to lube the hell out of it and work the action back and forth until it works again. Apparently this is just a Thing That Happens.Does it do anything to try to pop the hood from inside? Maybe a dumb question 🤷♂️
