Remove wiper assembly plastic cover. Then remove front bolt that holds the cross brace bar over the battery. Loosen the bolt at the other end of the brace bar and rotate brace bar from over the battery to a new location and proceed to remove the plastic battery hold down mount on bottom of battery.Disconnect the negative then positive battery cables from the battery then rotate battery up and out of compartment -- this is a very tight fit. It will come out and the clearance is very small. This is a neat challenge. Be sure to buy proper size battery for replacemeent

Unless you have the right tools, in this case a strut vise, pneumatic strut compressor, and strut clamps, you need to take it to a reputable dealer or mechanic who has the tools. Changing the strut is dangerous even if you have the right tools, so save yourself some headache and a trip to the hospital and pay to have it done. That is my suggestion.

Where is the outside air temperature sensor located?

Passenger side, just in front of the radiator and recessed behind the bumper under neath the metal brace in front of the A/C condensor near the bottom of the front end. It's nearly impossible to see without bending down or laying on the ground. But if you carefully move your hand along the metal brace you will feel it near the passenger side fog lamp. Pretty easy to change.

Noisy front end. any little bumb sends rough sound. the car rides great. I cannot stand the noise. I am about to change the struts, the sound is more a suspention point that is set up.

Before you change the struts check the stabilizer linkages and bushings. They will make a lot more noise a lot easier than a strut will. Also check the torque on the strut bearing bolts that go up through the strut tower. While the car is sitting, Push down hard on the front end and listen for where the noise is coming from. Other possible sources of the noise are the lower ball joints or the strut bearing. If you are changing the struts, change the strut bearings as well. You don't want to have to unbolt everything again if they go bad in ten thousand more miles. Good luck.

Where is the cabin air filter of 2005 Odyssey located and how can the cabin filter be changed.

I have a factory manual for 1999-2004 but I believe the filter is in the same location on a 2005. First, you have to remove the glove box. It's a straight forward process with a phillips head screwdriver and a 10mm socket. The filter is in the middle of the black plastic air handler behind the glove box. It is in a vertical slot covered by a narrow "door" with clips on top and bottom. If it has never been changed before, you will have to cut out the horizontal plastic cross brace that kept the dash assembly from warping during manufacture. Cut with a hack saw at each end of the plastic brace and remove it. You'll notice a metal cross brace that can be removed with screws at each end. Once the braces are removed, it is easy to unclip the filter door and replace the filter. Then just put everything back except the plastic cross brace you removed; it can be thrown out.
