There are some older threads about oil filter access on the Passport, and I read them before doing my first oil change. I felt that I had every kind of oil filter wrench (wrong!), so I went ahead with the job even though I didn't have the Honda wrench (07AAA-PLCA100). I've ordered the tool, but to get the job done I removed the right front wheel and gripped the filter using a big pair of Channel Lock pliers, up at the top (threaded) end. The Channel Locks are actually my go-to oil filter wrench on a lot of different applications, and they did the job just fine. I'm hoping with the special tool I won't need to remove the wheel. I did drape a plastic bag over the subframe, as suggested by various people, and I'm glad I did.
