Although I'm not near time for my first oil change, I did notice this afternoon whilst check the oil level that the filter is located in a rather hard to reach place (back side of engine, passenger's side).

Is there anyone out there (including Honda tech's) that has already changed the filter? Is there an easy way to do it? Particulars please!!!

Thanks

books - go to page 2 of this topic and look for the string "First Oil Change" written by me. It should be of some help.

Thanks Ion777!

I read your first post and it was most informative.
How about getting to the filter itself for removal and re-install?
Could you get to it easy enough from the bottom or did you have to snake your arm in from the top?

I went in from the bottom and reached over the axle. Another point is that the car is high enough i didn't even have to jack it up - just crawled under her and went to work.
