Drive the vehicle for about 1 minute to warm up the fluid a little.
Locate the 'pumpkin' on the rear axle. It is in the center of the axle.
Now locate the two caps. The upper cap is for filling, the lower for draining.
FIRST - loosen & remove the upper cap...just in case.
Second, place a oil pan below the drain plug...loosen and replace the drain plug. Allow to drain for 10 minutes.
Install drain plug, tighten to spec. (snug)
Add proper amount of fluid in top filler hole. You WILL need a hand pump or other device as this is impossible to do using the gallon jug of VTM4.

I used to work for honda and found this issue only once. After checking the driveshaft, differential, and tires, i found that the drive axles were the problem with vibration in the steering or upon acceleration.

SOURCE: HONDA CRV DRONING NOISE WHEN ON FULL LOCK!

Hi,
I had the same problem before, you also feel a little shake on the steering wheel.
you have to check on two things:
First: check your car's hydrulic steering oil level.
Second: If the hydrulic oil level is ok, you have to change the rear diff oil, and there will be no groaning any more, no need to change the shaft.

SOURCE: how to change a serpentine belt on 2007 Honda

You'll need a 1/2 inch socket wrench to fit on the inlet of the idler pulley. You'll also need an extension bar to lengthen the socket wrench because the wrench alone won't be long enough to reach. Apply pressure to the pulley to take the tension off the belt. Slide the belt off and then install the new one using the diagram under the hood as a guide. Check this thread for some photos:

SOURCE: in cab air filter

behind the glove compartment, you have to disconnect the box damper and remove the glove box stops, let the glove compartment hang down and the filter is in front of you in the evaporator housing behind a cover.

Maintenance Minder 6 Scheduled Maintenance
Recommended service for your 2006 Honda Ridgeline:

Replace VTM-4 rear differential fluid: Driving in mountainous areas at very low vehicle speeds or trailer towing results in higher level of mechanical (shear) stress to fluid or frequently fully loaded. This requires differential fluid changes more frequently than recommended by the Maintenance Minder. If you regularly drive your vehicle under these conditions, have the differential fluid changed at 7,500 miles (12,000 km), then every 15,000 miles (24,000 km).

How to change rear brake pads for a honda 2007 ridgeline


The 2007 Honda Accord is equipped with four wheel disk brakes. Disk brakes wear down and require regular maintenance. Worn brake pads can cause squeeling and grinding noises, as well as reduced braking power. Improperly maintained brake pads can cause damage to the brake rotors as well as brake failure. Save on labor costs by replacing your own brake pads.www.lightdeal.co.uk

My 2007 Honda Crv is growling when backing up Honda replaced the rear differential oil at 8000miles and once again at 15k the problem has returned. Has Honda come up with a better solution than replacing...


No. Contaminated rear diff fluid causes this noise while making sharp turns. By changing your service interval to every 15k miles will keep the noise under control.
