Nope. These are not recalls - just recommended solutions to an existing problem.

042 deals with the flapping hood at highway speeds. Several dealers realigned the hoods to fix this, which isn't the correct fix.

bulletin # 046 remote transmitter

Thanks for posting bulletins.
Bulletins #046 remote transmitter on the 2nd pg. item (6) says to reprogram the remote use the service manual. Is that the same manual listed in the back of the owners manual that can be purchased from Helm inc.? The reason I ask is that the dealer says its $99 for the remote and $150 to program it. If you buy the manual for $75 your still $75 ahead and have the service manual for future reference.

Refering to the tech manual as it specifies in that bulletin, the tech manual says that you can add/delete a remote transmitter without the HDS (Honda Diag. Sys). The transmitter that opens the door locks is separate from the immobilizer transponder that prevents your car from starting without an authorized key.
So, if you buy a new key and get it cut etc, you will need Acura to program it. But if you are simply buying the lock/unlock transmitter part, then you don't need to.

Adding transmitters is easy, there's a short 3 sentance paragraph describing how to do it. Let me know if you need.

As for the "knock or clunk from rear suspension," will someone please explain a little more in detail the sound and when they hear it? When I come out of my slanted driveway in reverse, I feel like it has a pretty loud noise when making contact with the road (it is about a 140 degree angle where they meet). I do not hear it on my 01, so it makes me wonder. Just a little more description would be great. Thanks.

I just came back from the dealer where this TSB was done. I had been attributing the "clank" to stiff suspension; it was like the shocks were worn out in rebound. I only heard it on some bad potholes, though. I shied away from Sport mode on really bad streets.
After having it fixed, the whole car is quieter! While I didn't notice all the clunking going on, when it stopped it was blissfully silent.
I even put it in Sport mode and rode around Manhattan streets! Potholes, bicyclists, and a few slow pedestrians, and nary a suspension clunk!
