Yep, it's broken, and the fluid is the blowby from the crankcase vent hose. Clean the clear tube on the back of the airbox oout as that is supposed to catch that oil residue until it's filled then it will spill out of the bottom of the airbox.

Very light torque when tightening.
What are you saying? The metal piece you see in the pic that is in the chrome cover should not be there, but rather in the housing?

No luck. The black piece in the housing is glued well together, but the chrome piece does not go in that hole. Too small a hole. Look at the pic of the flat metal piece on chrome cover, then look at the hole when clamped together. big difference. I must be missing something here. Like what Hans said maybe the metal piece should be in the housing to start with, so I have to get the piece out of the chrome cover? I will need to break the bond that is glued though.

Yes! Hold that metal piece with pliers and remove the allen head screw from it.
Then install the metal piece in the hole on the back cover. If you have already glued it you will have to break the glue before the metal piece will fit in the hole. It is a tight fit before it's glued together.
That metal piece is an anchored nut, and is molded into the plastic back cover.
Look at the other cover screws and see how they are screwed into the back cover. That's how it is supposed to be.

Obviously I'm not the most mechanically inclined! When I saw the cover with the metal piece, I thought interesting Honda decided to make this different than the others. wow.

Problem solved without glue. The broken plastic/rubber grommet was so tight, that even with metal piece in place all the way, which took awhile for me to get it in there, still cracked part not totally closed. I had to use a hammer to bang metal piece in there. Cover is totally flush. Did not over tighten. Don't think the metal piece is going anywhere.
Thanks Starrrider!

Didn't know the price but yup. Why do that when it's fixed for, price of a clamp $2.25 that I ended up not needing?
Good to know though.
