Good morning,

The filter is inside the transmission. Honda does not provide a filter that can be serviced.

They do recommend installing an external filter.

TITLE: Avoiding Comebacks From A/T Contamination

APPLIES TO: All models

SERVICE TIP:

Installing a reman A/T? Here are some important tips to keep in mind to ensure a first-time fix and to avoid any come-backs:
If the vehicle has an ATF cooler, make sure you clean the cooler with the ATF Cooler Cleaner (P/N GHTTTCF6H). See S/B 89-022, ATF Cooler Cleaner, for details.
If the reman A/T kit includes an in-line filter, don't forget to install it. If the vehicle already has an in-line filter from an earlier A/T replacement, then remove the existing filter, and install the new one.
Spray the driveshaft splines with solvent and compressed air before installing them in the reman A/T. If the failed A/T had a speed sensor, make sure it's clean before you install it. Debris from the failed A/T can catch in the driveshaft splines or on the speed sensor and contaminate the reman A/T.
If the reman A/T comes with a heater/cooler, make sure you install the reman A/T with that heater/cooler. Never install the heater/cooler from the failed A/T; you could contaminate the reman A/T.
