With Honda becoming one of the most popular vehicle makes in North America, Snap-on has developed 10 Honda-specific tools that will help service technicians take advantage of the service opportunities afforded by the ever-growing Honda vehicle population.
“The Honda Accord and the Honda Civic were two of the top five top-selling cars in the United States last year so we know service technicians are going to see an increase in the number of Hondas coming in for service for many years to come,” said Scott Amundson, product manager for Snap-on. “These Snap-on Honda-specific tools will help service technicians perform Honda-related repair jobs faster, leading to improved productivity, which in turn leads to more business, and we know there is nothing service providers like more than added business.”
The Snap-on Honda Job Challenge tools include:
3/8” Drive Short 3 Phillips Socket Driver (FPS32E) The FPS32E is perfect for high torque application on Honda brake drums and rotors.
Honda Oil Filler (OFHON33) Prevents any unwanted mess as the OFHON33 fastens and seals onto the filler neck with Hondas that have an oil filler with a threaded oil filler cap (i.e. threaded oil fillers found on Honda Accord, Civic, Element, Fit and S2000).
Shielded Oxygen Sensor Wrench with Bent and Flex Handle (22mm) (SWR4) Depth of socket and wall diameter of socket are critical for the limited space inside the heat shield. Will remove oxygen and air/fuel sensors on 2006 and later Hondas.
Five-Piece Stubby Universal Torx Set 1/4 Drive (105TUTX) The stubby torx set is perfect for working in tight areas. The T30 is ideal for Honda airbag control module inside passenger compartment of dashboard.

Honda Harmonic Dampener Pulley Holding Tool (YA6010A) The YA6010A saves time during the removal and installation of the crank bolt on most Honda engines. The YA6010A prevents the pulley from rotating when removing/installing the pulley bolt.
