A Few Words About Safety

Service Information

The service and repair information contained in this manual is intended for use by qualified, professional technicians.
Attempting service or repairs without the proper training, tools, and equipment could cause injury to you or others. It could also
damage the vehicle or create an unsafe condition.
This manual describes the proper methods and procedures for performing service, maintenance, and repairs. Some procedures
require the use of specially designed tools and dedicated equipment. Any person who intends to use a replacement part, service
procedure or a tool that is not recommended by Honda, must determine the risks to their personal safety and the safe operation of
the vehicle.
If you need to replace a part, use genuine Honda parts with the correct part number or an equivalent part. We strongly recommend
that you do not use replacement parts of inferior quality.
For Your Customer's Safety
Proper service and maintenance are essential to the customer's safety and
the reliability of the vehicle. Any error or oversight while servicing a vehicle
can result in faulty operation, damage to the vehicle, or injury to others.
For Your Safety
Because this manual is intended for the professional service technician, we
do not provide warnings about many basic shop safety practices (e.g., Hot
parts – wear gloves). If you have not received shop safety training or do not
feel confident about your knowledge of safe servicing practices, we
recommended that you do not attempt to perform the procedures described
in this manual.
Some of the most important general service safety precautions are given
below. However, we cannot warn you of every conceivable hazard that can
arise in performing service and repair procedures. Only you can decide
whether or not you should perform a given task.

Important Safety Precautions

Make sure you have a clear understanding of all basic shop safety practices and that you are wearing appropriate clothing and
using safety equipment. When performing any service task, be especially careful of the following:
• Read all of the instructions before you begin, and make sure you have the tools, the replacement or repair parts, and the skills
required to perform the tasks safely and completely.
• Protect your eyes by using proper safety glasses, goggles or face shields any time you hammer, drill, grind, pry or work around
pressurized air or liquids, and springs or other stored-energy components. If there is any doubt, put on eye protection.
• Use other protective wear when necessary, for example gloves or safety shoes. Handling hot or sharp parts can cause severe
burns or cuts. Before you grab something that looks like it can hurt you, stop and put on gloves.
• Protect yourself and others whenever you have the vehicle up in the air. Any time you lift the vehicle, either with a hoist or a jack,
make sure that it is always securely supported. Use jack stands.
Make sure the engine is off before you begin any servicing procedures, unless the instruction tells you to do otherwise.
This will help eliminate several potential hazards:
• Carbon monoxide poisoning from engine exhaust. Be sure there is adequate ventilation whenever you run the engine.
• Burns from hot parts or coolant. Let the engine and exhaust system cool before working in those areas.
• Injury from moving parts. If the instruction tells you to run the engine, be sure your hands, fingers and clothing are out of the way.
Gasoline vapors and hydrogen gases from batteries are explosive. To reduce the possibility of a fire or explosion, be careful when
working around gasoline or batteries.
• Use only a nonflammable solvent, not gasoline, to clean parts.
• Never drain or store gasoline in an open container.
• Keep all cigarettes, sparks and flames away from the battery and all fuel-related parts.
Improper service or repairs can create an
unsafe condition that can cause your customer
or others to be seriously hurt or killed.
Follow the procedures and precautions in this
manual and other service materials carefully.
Failure to properly follow instructions and
precautions can cause you to be seriously hurt
or killed.
Follow the procedures and precautions in this
manual carefully.
