2005 Honda Questions and Answers


  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2005 Honda Pilot
  • Both Curt class III trailer hitch, part # 13328 and the Draw-Tite Hitch class III trailer hitch, part # 75599, are quality hitches. But the most popular hitch for your vehicle is the Curt hitch, part # 13328. Installation is relatively easy, even for a beginner. The Curt receiver simply bolts on to the inside of each frame rail. Both hitches require about 40 minutes of installation time. The Curt hitch does use two extra screws to attach the center bumper bracket above the receiver...

  • Maximum Towing Capacity of a 2005 Honda CR-V
  • A trailer hitch receiver such as the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13535 which is a confirmed fit for your 2005 Honda CR-V is almost always going to be rated higher than the vehicle's towing capacity. You will need to abide by the lower of the two ratings as this will be your limiting factor. I have attached an install video of this hitch on a similar 2004 Honda CR-V for you. To determine the maximum trailer weight you can tow with your CR-V, you will need to find both the Gross...

  • Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2005 Honda Pilot Without a Trailer Hitch
  • There are three different ways to carry bikes on a vehicle and those are with a trailer hitch mounted bike rack, a rooftop mounted bike rack or a trunk mounted bike rack. Only hitch mounted and rooftop mounted bike racks are recommended for your 2005 Honda Pilot since bike rack manufacturers have determined it is not safe to attach a trunk mounted bike rack on your rear hatch. If you have a roof rack on your vehicle, then you could look into rooftop mounted bike racks like the Swagman...

  • Where Does the Fuse Install From Tow Ready T-One Wiring Harness # 118438 on 2005 Honda Odyssey
  • Sounds like you are looking at position #5 on the drivers side fuse box of your 2005 Honda Odyssey Touring. When installing the Tow Ready T-One Wiring Harness, part # 118438, on your Odyssey you will want to locate the fuse compartment on the passenger side kick panel, near the glove box. Open the fuse compartment and place the provided 7.5 amp fuse into fuse position #5 in the fuse box. Attach the fuse label to fuse cover in position #5. I am including a link to the installation...

  • Where is the Transmission Return Line on a 2005 Honda Pilot for a Transmission Cooler
  • The transmission return line on your 2005 Honda Pilot can be located between the frame crosstube and the drivers side support bracket (see photo). The return line will be the line closest to the front of the vehicle. We installed Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler, # D13503, on a 2006 Honda Pilot. I attached the video for you to check out. The installation should be almost identical on your 2005 Pilot.

  • Ball Mount and Hitch Ball for Draw-Tite Class III 2 Inch Hitch # 75270 on 2005 Honda Odyssey
  • On your 2005 Honda Odyssey with a Draw-Tite Class III 2 Inch Hitch, part # 75270, the recommended ball mount is the Draw-Tite Ball Mount, part # 2753. It has a 2-3/4 inch rise or a 4 inch drop. You will also need the Pin and Clip, part # PC3, to attach the ball mount to your hitch. The ball mount will use a hitch ball with a 1 inch shank diameter. The hitch ball size will depend what size coupler is on your trailer. The most common size is a 2 inch hitch ball like the Tow Ready 2 Inch...

  • Transmission and Power Steering Cooler Recommendation for a 2005 Honda Odyssey
  • Since you are planning on buying a transmission cooler like the Derale Transmission Cooler, part # D13502, I would consider purchasing the Derale Combination Cooler Core, part # D15321. This cooler can be used for cooling both the transmission fluid and the power steering fluid on your vehicle in one compact package, see photo at right. You will need to measure to decide if you will be able to mount the transmission cooler first. The dimensions of the Derale Combination Cooler Core are...

  • What Power Steering Cooler Is Recommended On A 2005 Honda Odyssey
  • The choice of power steering cooler for your 2005 Honda Odyssey will depend on the amount of room you will have to mount the heat exchanger on your vehicle. The power steering cooler will be installed inline with the power steering pump and the heat exchanger will need to be located in a position where it can get airflow to help cool the fluid. Since you are installing a transmission cooler also, you will want to make sure you will have room for both the transmission cooler heat exchanger...

  • Does a Transmission Cooler Increase Towing Capacity of a 2005 Honda Odyssey EX
  • A transmission cooler will help the transmission run cooler and last longer while towing a trailer. However, it does not increase towing capacity of your towing setup, It can make a difference in the life of your transmission. Considering the price of one it is a worthwhile investment for extending the life of your transmission. I attached a couple FAQs on transmission coolers and an installation video for you to check out also.

  • Towing Capacity of 2005 Honda Pilot and Parts Needed to Tow Trailer
  • I took a look at the online owner's manual for your 2005 Honda Pilot. It states that this vehicle, if equipped with a transmission cooler and power steering fluid cooler, has a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds for a standard trailer. This limit is assuming that there are just two occupants in the vehicle (including the driver). For each additional occupant, the capacity actually goes down (4 occupants = 3,300 pound capacity, etc). I do recommend verifying this information in your...

  • What Torque Rating Should the Bolts Be Tightened to on Draw-Tite Hitch 75270
  • I looked up the instructions for the Draw-Tite hitch, part # 75270, and the torque specification for the 6 M12 bolts is 68 Lb.-Ft. I have added a link to the instructions below so that you can review them. The torque rating is just above the small print on the first page.

  • RV-Rated Bike Rack Recommendations for Class A Motorhome
  • A hitch extension would seem to be the ideal solution for your circumstances with insufficient bike clearance at the back of your RV, but any type of extension like # C45791 will cost you half of your hitch capacity. Hitch adapters/extenders cause this loss of capacity because they change the geometry of the system, allowing for more stress to be applied to the hitch tube because the actual load is further away. A better option is an RV-rated bike rack that provides enough clearance...

  • What Fairing Options Are Available for the SportRack Roof Rack for 2005 Honda Accord SR1002
  • The SportRack Roof Rack for the 2005 Honda Accord, part # SR1002, fits your 4-door sedan. SportRack does not offer fairings for their roof rack systems. I checked with my contact at Thule and they advised that the SportRack square crossbars have dimensions that make them incompatible with the hardware supplied with Thule fairings. Just to be absolutely certain I did test-fit a Thule fairing on the SportRack crossbar. As Thule advised, and by a very small margin, the hardware will not...

  • Can AirLift 1000 Rear Axle Helper Spring # AL60815 Support Trailer with 600-lbs Tongue Weight
  • The rear-axle air bag kit you referenced, AirLift 1000 Helper Spring # AL60815, provides up to 1000-lbs of load leveling at its maximum pressure rating of 35-lbs psi. Your trailer with approximately 600-lb tongue weight would certainly fall within the operating range for this product. If you are towing often and frequently have widely varying trailer weights then an adjustable air bag kit like this AirLift 1000 is a good choice for adding rear-end support. If your trailer weight is fairly...

  • Snow Chain Recommendation for a 2005 Honda Accord with 205/60R 16 size Tires
  • The chains that feature actual chain instead of cable should provide you with more traction than the cable snow chains, therefore giving you better handling and control. However, since your owners manual specifically says to use low clearance cable style chains you should stick with their recommendation and get that style snow chain, otherwise you may damage your 2005 Honda Accord. I recommend you get Glacier Tire Chains for the 2005 Accord by Honda, part # PW1934V.

  • How to Install the Derale 8000 Series Transmission Cooler on a 2005 Honda Odyssey
  • The Derale Transmission coolers do not come with vehicle specific install instructions, but we have a video installation that should be very helpful. I have also attached a diagram detailing how the cooler is installed for you. Installation is fairly simple. You can find the transmission return line by running the vehicle briefly and checking for the cooler of the two transmission lines. The coolest line will be the return line that you need to attach to either port on the transmission...

  • Which Transmission Cooler is Recommended for a 2005 Honda Pilot
  • Mounting a trans cooler in front of everything else, radiator and AC condenser, will yield the most cooling ability. The size of the heat exchanger is the factor that weighs most heavily on the cooling ability followed by location and construction/design. The best way to select a cooler is by considering the load you will be towing and the area you will be towing in. The cooler needed to aid in towing a single jet ski in a cool or moderate climate would not be nearly as big as the cooler...

  • At this time the only trunk or hatch mounted bike racks available for the 2005 Honda Odyssey is the Hollywood Racks # HRF2 for 2 bikes or the # HRF3 for 3 bikes. It will mount to the rear hatch, crossbars, or existing rails on your Odyssey. There are other options available if you need to transport more that 2 bikes.

  • How to Remove Cam-Lock Type Rear-View Mirror on 2005 Honda Pilot
  • Both wedge-style and cam-lock types of rearview mirrors are illustrated in the linked photo. Both use a slide-in fitment for the mirror's base to engage the windshield mount. To remove the mirror in most applications it will need to slide up towards the vehicle's roof in order to disengage from the mount. If there is no set screw or other fastener on your mirror mount then it may indeed be a cam-lock type. If you need a mounting kit we offer the CIPA Universal Rearview Mirror Mounting...

  • Converting a Trailer with a 6 Square Connector to a 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector
  • If the trailer is a Jayco trailer, you will just need Adapter # 30104, to go from the 4-Way flat on the 2006 Honda Odyssey to the 6 square on the trailer. If the trailer is a different brand, this adapter will not work. Instead, you will need to convert one of the connectors to be compatible with the other. If you convert the trailer, the other 2 functions on it will be lost unless you converted it back again. If you converted the vehicle, it will only be compatible with trailers that...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for a 2005 Honda Odyssey with 235/65R16 Tires
  • The Glacier Tire Chains, # PWPLC1142, are listed as a fit for a 2005 Honda Odyssey with 235/65R16 tires. However, you will want to check a couple of things first before installing any chains. Start by turning the wheels to either all the way right or all the way left. Then measure the distance from the inside of the sidewall of the tire to the nearest part of the van on both sides. This is clearance that you cannot exceed with chains. You will also need to check the owners manual...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2005 Honda CR-V With a Stowmaster All Terrain Tow Bar
  • When you say a plastic brush guard on your 2005 Honda CR-V, if you are referring to the factory bumper trim package (see photo), then the Roadmaster Base Plates, part # 1555-5, will fit your vehicle. If the plastic brush guard is a separate piece that is added on, then none of the Roadmaster base plates will fit. The Blue Ox Base Plates, part # BX2238, will not work with a Stowmaster All Terrain tow bar. So, if your Honda CR-V has the factory bumper trim package you will need base...

  • What is the Difference Between Curt and Draw-Tite Trailer Hitches for a 2005 Honda Civic
  • Neither the Draw-Tite hitch # 24706 or Curt hitch # C11204 require any exhaust modification for installation so they are the same in that respect. With the Draw-Tite hitch there are access holes on the bottoms of the frame rails that need to be enlarged to install the hitch. A drill can be used but you could also use a file or other tool to enlarge the holes if they are not large enough for the hardware to fit through. You will not have to drill any new holes. The Curt hitch instructions...

  • Can a Dual Purpose Ball Mount be Used to Carry a Dirt Bike and Tow a Seadoo Trailer
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt and he stated that the dual purpose receivers and ball mounts are not rated for use with something like a dirt bike and carrier. The issue is not the weight but where that weight is placed. It will be too far from the receiver and can cause it to fail. The best option, but still not ideal, is to install a front mount hitch, # 33328, and use the dirt bike carrier in it. However, my contact at Curt did state that for every foot of distance the weight is...

  • Recommended Components For Flat-Towing 2005 Honda CR-V Behind Motorhome
  • there are 5 thing needed when you are flat-towing a vehicle. You will need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, lighting for the towed vehicle, and most states now require a supplemental brake system. If you like the Blue Ox Adventurer Tow Bar, part # BX7322, I recommend using Blue Ox base plates as well, like part # BX2238. This eliminates the hassle of using an adapter that allows you to be able to use different manufacturers for base plates and tow bars. You mentioned the RoadMaster...

  • Steering Stabilizer and Front and Rear Anti-Sway Bars for 2015 Forest River Georgetown Motorhome
  • From my research your 2015 Forest River Georgetown is built on a Ford F-53 chassis and has a maximum GVWR of 22,000 pounds. At that weight, as long as you have the V10 model, you have the correct parts: Front Anti-Sway Bar # RM-1139-140 Rear Anti-Sway Bar # RM-1139-145 Reflex Steering Stabilizer with Brackets # RM-RBK22-RSSA You can find the pricing on each product page.

  • Roof Rack Options for a 2005 Honda Civic 2 Door
  • There are roof racks available for your 2005 Honda Civic 2-door, but the SportRack Frontier Semi-Custom Roof Rack # SR1002 that you referenced is not a confirmed fit so I do not recommend it for you. Check out the link I provided that has all of the different roof racks that are confirmed to work on your vehicle. Check out the Thule Aeroblade Traverse rack part # THARB47, # TH480R, # THKIT1516, # TH487. The aerodynamic design of this rack will be much quieter than the other racks...

  • Comparing Thule Helium Aero and Thule Apex Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Racks for a 2005 Honda Pilot
  • Either the Thule Helium Aero, # TH9043, or the Thule Apex 4, # TH9025, will fit your 2005 Honda Pilot. The Helium Aero has a capacity of 35 pounds per bike, the Apex is listed at 30 pounds per bike. Provided the bikes you have do not exceed these capacities then you would be able to carry your 3 mountain bikes. The Apex features arced arms to make the spacing of the bikes slightly greater than on the Helium. But installing bikes on either would not be much of a challenge. Both racks...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2005 Honda Pilot
  • The best way to pick out a transmission cooler for a vehicle like your 2005 Honda Pilot would be to go with the biggest one that will fit the available space the vehicle has in front of the radiator/AC condenser. I would go with the # D13503 over the # D13502 that you referenced as long as you have the room for it. This cooler measures 11W x 8-3/4T x 7/8D Inch. I attached an install video that shows this cooler being installed on a similar Honda as yours.
