Jack up the car, put it on jack stands and remove it from underneath.

Re: oil change problem

Sounds like you have an SH model cause if you had a base model, you wouldn't have this problem. Best solution is to get an oil filter relocator kit

Re: oil change problem

Can you not reach it from underneath?? I've never even thought of trying to take it off from above. Honda squeezed to much stuff under the hoods of our cars to even do that.

Re: oil change problem

maybe try going over to an oil change place and see if one of the techs can help you out at the end of the day, just find one of the cool dudes there and he can probably just screw it on for you

or get ramps.. ya ramps
