RE: Have Manual, and multiple CX owner, answers,best I can....
Hi there, Ok.. The part # for that is: (from Honda)154A1-413-005. Thats the oil filter with big O ring gaskets.(comes with a spare odd, almost triangle shaped O ring, and smaller O ring for the tube/bolt that holds the filter to the block. Now..Your oil filter is the finned, round aluminum thing with a small bolt head on it-right behind your front wheel. (bottom right of block when looking straight at the engine from the front end)I hope that helps ya out. The filter\´s not bad to change,cleaning the oil sump/pump screen is a bit of a pain, as you have to remove the front engine/clutch housing, theclutch ..ect. These screens DO plug from years of clutch fiber, carbon...ect. Its worth doing an engine flush before ya change your filter. That way you won\´t have to rip appart your engine to clear out the internal/permanent screen. ;D Good luck!
