The license plate light bulb holder is a bitch to remove The way the clips are made, it's hard to seat it back exactly where it was when there is no room for your hands. Especially the right side for a 08 TSX. But thanks for the video!

So much bad info in this video. I hope you dont do major work on your car…

This is informative and a money saver. You don't have to do everything the manual tells you. Like take to the dealership for every oil change. This take like 10 min and no need to pay someone to pull and place a filter. Scheduled mileage maintenance is highly recommended and I take my Tsx to the dealer for that.

it's really amazing. These stuff normally kept secret to the public so service guys can make money. It's simple. However, youtube is paying a lot more money to these guys for having their videos watched compared to them making money just for servicing engines. So nothing will ever be kept secret! Think about how humanity will be pushed forward just for sharing their secrets. Youtube can really be humanities biggest invention after patenting. I'm sorry to bring this up under this video but it really is exciting.
