REMOVAL & INSTALLATION CRV and 4-Cylinder Odyssey Models



The radio may contain a code anti-theft circuit. Always obtain the security code number before disconnecting the battery cables.

  1. Shift the transaxle into N (neutral).
  2.  
  3. Disconnect the negative and positive battery cables and remove the battery.
  4.  
  5. Remove the air intake hose, air cleaner case, and battery tray. Disconnect the ground cable and the cable bracket from the battery tray.
  6.  
  7. Disconnect the throttle cable from the throttle control lever.
  8.  
  9. Detach the transaxle ground cable and the mainshaft speed sensor connectors. Detach the shift and lock-up solenoid valve connectors.
  10.  
  11. Disconnect the starter cables from the starter motor and unbolt the cable bracket from the transaxle case.
  12.  
  13. Disconnect the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) wiring harness. The VSS is located on the rear of the transaxle case near the cooler line inlet.
  14.  
  15. Detach the gear position switch and counter shaft speed sensor connectors.
  16.  
  17. Loosen the four upper transaxle case bolts, but leave them threaded into the engine block. Move the lower radiator hose slightly upward and toward the engine block if more clearance is needed for a socket and extension.
