There are two plastic covers on limited that need to be removed before the metal cover can be removed. The first plastic cover routes air to the front diff. This is held by plastic fasteners. Pop out the inner grey pin with a screwdriver (or special tool). With that cover removed, you can remove the bolts holding the second plastic cover. (radiator protection) Then, the metal skid plate/cover can be removed. Yes, fasteners you need to remove are hidden unless done in this order, remove that air-flow cover first.

I use ramps and drain on a tilt. Yes if you tried to change the filter with those plastic covers on it must have been difficult. Pop off that skinny cover first and the rest is obvious. I did have the same issue on my first Limited oil change. I left those two plastic cover off for a few months. Put them back on for winter protection.

The part number for the plastic fasteners on the air flow cover is 90467-09227, in case you bugger them up.

Dealership does it every 10k miles. I donít think they will change it any sooner. I have a new 2020, 13k miles, changed at 10k. If I want it done sooner I have to go somewhere else.

Oil change

I drive over a shallow ditch. The car stays level and I have plenty of room to work. My front skid plate is hinged on the front so I don't have to remove it. I loosen the bolts and swing it forward.

Ready-made oil pit! I like your KISS approach. Wish I had such a place.
