Thanks for the thread. This is an excellent resource. One thing that should be added is issue with cold start and steering pump noise (moan). Usually goes away when the engine is warm. It's a simple replacement of a $5 (orange) o-ring that takes 10mm wrench, rags, and about 10 min. Saved me $200+ on replacing the steering pump as per recommendation of my mechanic.

Wonderful resource? Isn't it possible to have it as a sticky on the front page rather than having to dig through to find it?

Thanks for the thread. My wife likes going to the dealer for service (they treat her very nice), but going through the invoices, I see why they are nice to her.... after seeing what I've been paying for cabin filters, spark plugs and LOF's. Thanks to this thread and community, I'm going to try and do more on my own. Yesterday I cleaned the intake manifold (the "How Did Oil Get Here" thread). Next up...EGR and PCV and bulbs that blew on the dash. Not sure I can take on the valve adjustment, but we'll see.

Hi Guys,

Hats off to all of you, i have been to so many Auto Forums but by far this the best post i have ever seen. I have already bookmarked the links and plan to use it in future.

I need your help with something, we are missing a thread on "How to open front drivers side seat belt buckle" or "How to change a buckle on MDX (because i saw my buckle last night and there are no visible screws)"

I am getting SRS light when i buckle up, and in Canada there is no lifetime warranty on seat belts, the problem is very likely with the switch on the buckle, i have posted a thread as well for details. A very kind user "las4444" is already helping me with the issue. I don't want to spend $200-$300 on this.

Please point me right direction, the link to that post is:

I just bought my first MDX 2 weeks ago and am in love! Picked up a 2001 with only 101k miles on it and just gorgeous. After going through this thread I cant wait to try cleaning the intake manifold and see if I can bump the mileage. I don't know if this was ever done by either of the prior owners and am currently getting ~17 miles per gallon, most on the highway albeit with a heavier foot Anywhoo thanks for all the great info and walk throughs. Gives me the confidence to work on this car myself!
