Whenever I drain the MTF, I always check the state of the strainer to understand the condition of the transmission.

The big particles will be trapped by the magnet plate at the bottom of the trans case but the metal powder and small particles are held inside this strainer before going through the oil pump.

For this NSX, as the owner has already done the task, Iíll leave the strainer without opening it.

While wiping off the splashed grease, I found small dent on the lower shock body of RL side.

This is not the first time to see this marking and on one NSX, the shcok bottom eyelet was actually bent...

Not a problem with this level but it would be nice people can be a bit more careful...
