In this video I show you how to remove the engine, transmission, and front subframe from a first generation Honda Pilot. This is my first step in replacing the transmission, servicing the engine, and reconditioning the front suspension and subframe on this vehicle.
I also deal with a broken shift cable on this vehicle and share how I repaired it.
In summary, it’s pretty much everything you needed to know about reconditioning everything that drives and supports the front of a Honda Pilot. I hope you find the information useful and entertaining.
