Background: Since there is no "official" thread for the 3rd gen Odyssey filter replacement, I thought I"d make my own. I know I love me a good DIY thread on here. (thank you to all of you who make them :worship: ) Second thing is, i"m 16 years old so if there is anything wrong in my thread please correct me and I"ll fix it! Also, when you"re doing this, you need to have A LOT of patience! It all pays off, it"s completely worth it and you"ll be very happy with the results! What you"ll need:About a cup of Honda Genuine ATF DW-1 (you"ll lose a lil bit when you open the filter canister). Filter element: 25450-RAY-003Filter gasket: 91302-RAY-003O-Ring for canister: 91301-RAY-004A LOT OF PATIENCE!Alright time for fun stuff: You"ll need these parts:1. Remove the pointless engine cover (while cussing about why they even put it there)
*

2. You"ll need to remove the battery from the vehicle entirely by removing the two 10MM bolts on the battery, Negative goes off first! (Gets put back on last) Then the two 10MM for the battery hold down.
*

3. While you still have that 10MM socket on your ratchet, lets remove the air box from the van entirely. It"s held down by two 10MM bolts.4. You"ll want to remove the VSA modulator/ABS pump electrical connection completely. If you push down on the orange lever thingy while pushing against the little clip that keeps the orange lever from moving the whole thing will push off of the modulator itself.5. There is three 10MM bolts that hold down the modulator to the body. Remove them all. Unfortunately you"re only going to be able to move the modulator around. Now, lets not have to do a new brake line job. Be gentle with it, you"ll be able to move it out of the way just enough to get under it to access the filter.6. I was just too excited to take a picture, but if you look at number 7 in the diagram you should be able to put two and two together. It"s right smack dab under the VSA modulator held down by Three 10MM bolts. When you take it out be careful, there is a spring in there and we don"t want that to fall out. (Look at the picture)

Now you"re done! Did you ruin anything? Hopefully not! Patience is key here, this repair is time consuming. But, as always making this thread took longer than the repair!Here"s a picture of my filter: 104K 3X3 drain and fill at 30K and 60K BG flush (with ATF DW-1 at the dealer) at 90K

Ended up cutting the filter in half for kicks and giggles:

Wrap up: My final thoughts are, if you can turn a wrench, then you should definitely tackle this job. God only knows how many more miles i"ve added to that poor transmission. I"m still baffled why Honda says "it"s not serviceable" :dunno: and none of my local dealers even heard of them even having a filter :bs: . Side note: On the 2012 Accord service manual they say: only replace the transmission filter if it"s being re-built or it"s clogged?!? Anyways comments are appreciated and if you did yours post it down here !!
