Hey there folks, I’m just about due for my CVT Fluid change. My question is whether it’s necessary to also change out the transmission filter...? Given that I have a 1.5L engine, does that filter for the specific transmission NEED to be changed or can you get by with a simple drain and fill without any issues down the road?(pun intended)
Thanks!

There’s no accessible filter unless you count the CVT warmer filter (Part #: 25450-P4V-013). But that’s not really a filter that cleans the whole fluid. If you take it to a Honda dealership for the maintenance they will just do a drain and fill. If your super anal about maintenance and you want to get a good majority of the fluid you are suppose to do it multiple times. Where as 1 drain and fill gets some but not all since most of the fluid remains in the torque converter. Either is fine really.

There is another above the oil pan.
