The Honda dealer sux, they have nothing to offer or wats so ever.. Do you think the "Turbo 350 Accumulator Cover Tool Kent Moore J-23069" would work on the Rodeo?

You dont need the tool. You can use a threaded pipe to push the old cover in. Remove the snap ring and pull the cover out.
Be careful not to nick/scratch the housing surface. It make take some persuading to come out, and theres a spring behind it so be careful.
A little transmission fluid will come out but not much. Clean the sureface, lube up the oring on the new piston cover, and reverse the removal for installation.

I didnt have a threaded pipe and managed to remove and install the covers with a socket, short extension and a prybar.

If you really want to spend money for the tool, I can try searching for it. I saw a non-oem part number posted for it before.

How did it go? I have the same issue.
I couldn't work it out.. It's really stiff and very hard to push the accumalator bak to remove the snap ring. I couldn't do it.. I ask the tranny shop for a quote, but they are asking for $350.00 ... Alot..! for that much you can buy a new tranny already. I'm just going to cover it up with j.b. welding ...

Did you try putting a socket inside the cover and then using a pry bar to push the socket in in order to release accumulator spring pressure? That's going to be my approach as soon as I get the part from Jerry.
I may need a helper so I can get those 90 bend snap ring pliers to work.

Wish me luck....

Weighing the Pros and Cons of putting J.B. welding on the accumulator cover, to cover up the leak... I'm also waiting on a quote from a tranny shop here in Chico to see how much it would cost to have them fix the leak.. If I do place J.B. welding on the cover, i'll post up some pics.

I finally Gave-Up and went to a private Tranny Shop that only charged me $50.00 .. :D Got it fixed now, and he said it was pretty stuck in there.. he spent An hour and 1/2 getting it out... It's all worth it, i think; base on putting in new tranny fluid every week..

For Every who lives in CHICO, CA.. Sierra Automatic Trans. is the CHEAPEST in TOWN..
