Anyone who has attempted to DIY replacing the Bank 1 and Bank 2 catalytic converters... Can you tell me how best to access the Bank 1 converter? Can it somehow be accessed from below perhaps, or is my only option reaching down behind the engine?
Can anyone share how they removed the Bank 1 (btwn engine and radiator)Catalytic Converter from a 2007 odyssey. I was successful in unbolting it from the head and exhaust system, removing the heat shield, and removing the 02 sensor but could not squeeze the Catalytic out from between the engine and the subframe support tube at the front of the vehicle. If anyone had successfully completed this task, please share. Also, if someone has the Factory Service Manual, please share the method described to remove the Cats. I have the older Helms manual for the pre-2005 odyssey which differs (1 catalytic vs 3). Thanks
