Car starting to have noise on shifting and also not being sure when was last time the oil was replaced. I decided it`s the right time to replace both front and rear transmission oil.

This is my first time and was looking for a good video on youtube but nothing.

Has some of you have a good video or guide plus some tips to make a smooth and hassle free work.

Thanks

Get two litres dual Pump fluid. Think you should get yourself three litres for the manual transmission.....

I found the fill in and fill out access for the rear trasmission but I`m struggling to understand where the fill in is located for the front trasmission and the level one. Does anyone have a photos or scheme of the area where to look.

Thanks

Just about any year is fine. Biggest difference would be removing the plastic cover to get access to the transmission.
The procedure for the manual transmission is the same as doing the rear differential.
You may not need to jack up the car and place 4 jack stands if you can get access by just sliding under the car. You will just have try, some people can do it others can't.
1. Remove the fill plug first (important because you don't want to remove the drain plug only to find the fill plug is stuck )
2. Remove the drain plug
3. Let all the fluid drain
4. Reinstall the drain plug
5. Fill the transmisstion with the Honda's recommended fluid until fluid starts coming out of the fill hole.
6. Reinstall the fill plug
7. Clean up mess, reinstall cover and your done.
The recommend fluid and quantity is list in your owners manual under Specifications.
