HOW TO: Change Honda Transmission Oil / Fluid for 2018 -2021 HONDA CLARITY

Honda Clarity Vlog 15 – A quick video on how to change the TRANSMISSION oil on my 2018 – 2021 Honda Clarity. This is part of the Service A0123 videos I made for my Road Tripping with Clare. It takes about 15 minutes to do this procedure with tools. I change my Honda Clarity when the Maintenance Minder notifies me or about every 50,000 miles on average. I saved me time and money (about $100+ ) from going to a dealership to do the transmission oil change.

How To: WATCH MOVIES while Parking – Large Display – No Tools Needed!

If you want to watch movies in a large screen in your car and dont want to modify your car, then this video is for you. I will be adding a 13.3 inch 1080P Monitor with USB C and HDMI ( https://amzn.to/3kakZAG ) onto my car. There are larger sizes displays ini 15 and 16 inches ( https://amzn.to/3lmzKj1 ) however I prefer the 13 is a good compact size can be placed in my laptop bag with my laptop as an external monitor when traveling.

The Kogoda 13.3 Inch External Monitor (https://amzn.to/3kakZAG ) is an IPS Full HD 1080P external laptop monitor . It has USB C inputs for late model smart phones and laptops to use as an external monitor. It has a mini HDMI input. Connection is fast and easy and starts up in less a few seconds. Simply connect the USB power and one of the signal cables.

Its powered by USB C 5 volt at 1.5 – 2A. It comes with a wall power supply, but many USB chargers can output 2A now and so can my car’s built in USB charge port. Getting a 12v socket charge port is easy I use a Anker car charger ( https://amzn.to/3CaPkVS ).

It comes with a plastic cover and fold out stand. The cover is held by magnets so you may want to be careful when handling magnetic hard drives, credit cards, and other sensitive items.

I normally work in my car with my laptop or smart phone so if you are planning to use a bigger screen this is also helpful. You can ofcourse watch movies with this display. It is bright enough to use when the car is parked in the shade or in the sun.

Overall it has been a great addition to my car entertainment while parked. I just set it on my dash board and play a movie while waiting an hour for my car to charge or when waiting in the car. It doesnt require taking apart the car or voiding any warranties. It also uses very little energy so it doesnt impact my car battery much.

EASY INSTALL: HELLA Trumpet Horn Kit – No Wire Splicing

For those who want to upgrade their car’s weak horn and be heard. I got myself a set of HELLA Trumpet Horns ( https://amzn.to/39Oa8pk )! I will unbox and install these Hella horns on my car. If you don’t want to deal with splicing wires or buying relays this is the diy video for you.

I went with a Hella universal kit ( https://amzn.to/39Oa8pk ) and added a Honda Horn audio adaptor ( https://amzn.to/3bPK5Rl ) . Some horn kits have Honda specific connectors for fast plug and play easy connecting without splicing wires Hella has some many of the car manufacture plugs ( https://amzn.to/39Oa8pk ).

The issue with kits with specific car manufacture specific plugs is the possibility of being positioned in the wrong side of the horn. Your car may not have enough wiring harness to connect the plug. This happened with my Honda Clarity as the cable did not reach the horn plug. It needed another 3 inches of original harness length.

Universal horn kits are more flexible as you can buy an adaptor cable specific for your Honda or other car manufacture. Typical adapter cables are about 3-4 inches in length. The universal horn kit I choose was the Hella Trumpet Hi / Low Horn 113dB – Universal Kit. They had Honda specific connectors but I got the universal fit.

I also ordered a Honda Civic horn adaptor( https://amzn.to/3bPK5Rl )with 2 prongs to match my Honda Clarity. Some other model Honda have single prong as they ground from the mounting bolt to the metal of the car.

The only issue of my Hella Trumpet horns ( https://amzn.to/39Oa8pk ) and 1/4 inch terminals were larger than my 3rd party adapter. I had to make a F2 to F1 adaptor ( https://amzn.to/35TqYSV ) , by using a 16 AWG 1/4″ Female connector terminal from my terminal assortment kit ( https://amzn.to/3sCCewq ) and some electrical tape. I typically use Plastidip in a can ( https://amzn.to/39ImUpu ) to insulate my electrical terminals but the can dried out.

You will need a a flat head screwdriver for the plastic clips that cover the paneling, 12 MM socket for the mounting bolt, and a 10 mm socket wrench for adjusting the angle of the horn mount. After connecting the horn test it out prior to finishing up the cable management.

Enjoy your new louder horns!
