Today I installed a Magnefine filter on the transmission return line. It is pretty easy and you dont have to pull anything. Put ridge up on ramps or at least jack up drivers side front, slide under with head towards back of car -on your back- if you look up just rearward of lower black plastic underbody panel you will see both transmission lines and where they attach to metal lines which end at banjo fittings. The outermost of these two lines should be the return line as far as I can determine based on Honda odessy transmission cooler install pdf and based on my temperature readings of both lines using a infra red temp gun. So all you have to do is disconnect rubber line from outward most metal line and run this rubber line onto Magnefine filter at large end (one with label), then add a 8-10 inch piece of 3/8 fuel or transmission line to other end of magnefine -create a loop with that line onto outward most metal line (where you removed first line) -now you are passing return flow in the correct direction through Magnefine back into transmission. Use appropriate clamps ,ie; screw clamps or other and In my case I just used tie wraps to hold Magnefine away from frame etc so as not to have rattles/vibration -lots of different ways you could tie wrap it- you will figure that out -I will include a pic but its hard to get a good pic as its up in there. Anyway Magnefine filters have a very good reputation and tests have shown a 50-75% reduction in metal particles.
