You'll need to drop the pan on the bottom of the transmission to access the filter.
Like changing your oil only messier... much
Transmissions don't have drain plugs so you need to loosen a lot of bolts around the edge of the pan then carefully break the pan free from the body of the transmission. It will be stuck beacuse the gasket is probably glued on both sides.
Once free be prepared to catch about 7 quarts of transmission fluid that will start seeping and finally running out of the loosened pan. When the oil stops seeping remove the bolts and drain what's left of the oil into your container. The filter will be in plain sight usually held in place by one or two bolts. remove them clean the seat and reinstall the new filter.
Now you must clean the gasket off the pan and the transmission or it will leak.
While you have the pan down be sure to wipe it out. You will see metal filings in the pan maybe even stuck to a magnet in one corner THIS IS NORMAL. clean as best you can. replace gasket, Tighten all bolts evenly so as not to warp the pan. Refill the transmission and check for leaks

Where is the trasmission oil filter located on the 2004 Honda Odyssey


all filters for the transmission are located in the trans itself under the pan. unless you have an after market system added on for towing trailers then it should be close to the trans perhaps on the undre side of the car like an inline filter.

Where is auto trans filter on 2002 hyundai sonata w/2.4 engine ?


I did some checking and found that there is little to no info available,the only mention was that the internal filter is not user serviceable.Autozone sells a screw on external filter for your year and model but they don't show the location,try checking the trans oil cooler for the screw on filter.

Transmission filter


That car was available with 2 different transmissions.1 is the CD4E.That trans,the filter is only accessable if rebuilding the trans.You literally have to tear down the trans to get to the filter,so just drain and refill that one on a service.The other trans it could have is the GF4AEL,and that one has two pans.The filter is located in the bottom pan.Good luck.
