Holy sh** that was in there

If you may or may not know, I am currently rebuilding my trans. I was looking for the mysterious and elusive 2nd filter. I FOUND IT! SUCK THAT ACURA! The dealer wouldn't even sell me the replacement filter because "it doesn't exist" B.S. Well, I found it and I posted some more pic's on flickr since this forum has LOW space for high res photos.

Are they both buried inside the tranny or can you get to them for service?

both are inside the trans housing, but I found another, in the valve body too, making it 3.

here is a video inside the transmission case. I forgot to turn on sound when recording, my mistake: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_XgBaMXHaE

That's BS that they put everything in the trans housing making it impossible to service them. No wonder these cars have so many tranny problems.

It's a 2003. I made a video showing where it is but I forgot to turn on sound.

Thanks for sharing.

I am planning on rebuilding the tranny on my 03 MDX also. I am just wondering what problems are you trying to fix? And did you buy any special tools, like the main shaft holder, the 40 x 42 mm wrench(I need to disassemble the secondary shaft), etc.? If so, what is your suggestion where to buy them?

Also, any tips/tricks that you would like to share? Thanks.

A few, like the filtration issue I have been preaching since my first post, as seen in the video. Removing the 2 internal filters. Also the clutches were burn black so those needed to be changed.

Are you doing it yourself? IT IS A TON OF WORK TO INSTALL! I paid someone to drop it down for me so I could rebuild it with my mech. friend (long time friend= lower price quote!) I had planned to rebuild it myself and do a full tutorial, but I need more parts than what I initially anticipated, and soon my thanksgiving break was over, and I had too pay extra to get it done since I couldn't go to class and finish my HW at the same time.... lost a big opportunity to show the forum some stuff. I'll ask my mech. if he has the part for the compression holder. I'll pass you the info.

1. remove both rad hoses to get to the trans.
2. you must also remove the front diff, front frame, cv axles, also power steering rack. not fun. 4 hours of work.
3. get a transmission jack, not a floor jack. (unless you have a two post lift.
4. use masking tape to label all parts & screws.
5. use an engine hoist to hold the engine while rebuilding.
6. My trans was previously rebuilt, some idiot mech, and I found a few errors, the flared ring on clutch 3 was upside down, ripped a clutch seal, burning my clutch set.

i'll write some more once I remember.
