Default Transmission fluid change on a 5-speed manual transmission?

My í99 LX only has 75,000 miles on it, but in another month Iíll have had it for seven years. Per the maintenance schedule, I was supposed to change the transmission fluid after 90,000 miles or six years.

My car is a 5-speed manual. Is there any transmission fluid in there that Iím supposed to change?

Whoa... you have to take the casing off to change tranny fluid?

On most (all?) manual Hondas, there is a drain bolt located on the transmission. You can probably get to it from the front passenger side wheel well. I believe it takes a square 1/2" socket wrench to get it off. The fill hole is located above the drain hole.

Your best course of action is to pick up a Helms, Haynes, or Chilton book for your model Accord. It will come in handy for anything else you need to do.
