  1. Door got opened too far..advice?

    Problems & Issues
    My 2004 EX rolled backwards with the door open. The door got caught on a bush and opened too far. Unfortunately, it won't close. I loosened three bolts that hold the front left fender on, and loosened the bolts that mount the door to the car and was able to ( temporarily ) close it. What's my...
  2. Adjust Front Door 'Hold-Open'?

    Exterior
    My driveway has a slight incline and when I park my 2007 Element facing 'up' the front doors (especially the driver side door) won't hold in the full open position, usually slamming back shut just as I swing my legs out to exit (naturally!). Is there any way to increase the tension or grip on...
  3. Door handle stuck on driver side

    Problems & Issues
    I just purchased a 2003 Element and it was great until I got it home. The door handle on the driver's side will not budge. The only way to open it is to crawl from the passenger side and push it open from the inside. The door actuator was just replaced before I purchased it. Any ideas on a fix...
  4. Closed the door mid-replacement of a window regulator motor, now the door won't open.

    Problems & Issues
    Door lock is stuck. Can't get the driver side door open. The window regulator motor crapped out on my driver side door, and I just got a replacement motor in. After doing most of the disassembly, I had to close the door for a moment, but now can't get it open. The key won't work from the...

    Interior
    Hi! I just bought a 2003 AWD EX, I guess the only sunset orange pearl in Holland, but there are some things to change..... the remote control does not function on the drivers door any more, and besides that this door has another lock, i.c. another key ( I guess that somewhere in the past...
  7. Door Ajar Light On-Keyless Entry sometimes doesn't lock

    Maintenance and Service
    Hey All. I just got a 2004 Honda Element with key less Entry. Immediately noticed that the Door Ajar light is on often, whether doors are open or not. The reason I mention the key less entry is because if the door sensor isn't working, it shows the door is open, and wont lock via the key less...

  12. Fuel Filler Door Inset Correction- Very Simple

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    This is a simple DIY to correct the inset of the E’s fuel filler door. One of the first things that I noticed when I got my E was that the fuel filler door seemed to be inset considerably, which gave it an uneven, cheap look. So this is my simple solution. Put washers as needed between the...
  13. Screw Size for Door Latches

    Exterior
    My '03 Elements rear door latches always come loose, this has been a problem plaguing my element from the first year of owning it. The screws come loose and then the latch is loose and off kilter. It makes the rear door not shut right or not at all. Well I guess the this last time was it for...

  15. Front Door stop notches worn!

    Problems & Issues
    I'm a new (used) E owner! 07 EX 4WD 65k mi: Pardon the lack of proper terminology. The stop notches in the mechanism that keeps the driver side door open at varying degrees seems to be worn to the point where the door no longer stays put at those increments and is just swinging free. Is...

  17. 2007 back-door water leak advice, at wits end...

    Maintenance and Service
    2007 Element EX, 5 Speed, sunroof. We've had this in to the dealer 5 times now, and they can't find the leak. Each time the back is pretty wet, with a fair amount of water standing in the catch-tray and water from just below the window on-down the door. The wheel wells have been documented as...
  18. Front door window broken

    Exterior
    The driver side window (main door) exploded on me today while traveling on a rural stretch of a major interstate. This is more than a little scary at 65+ miles an hour. The outside temp was approx 72. The inside just a little cooler as I was running vented outside air. All other windows were...
  19. New Passenger Door - DIY

    Exterior
    So backing into a parking spot today I was T-boned by some lady who was too impatient to wait on me to get fully into the spot. Needless to say the bottom of the front passenger door is bent in which has caused the top of the door to be bent outwards, which both leak water now. Instead of...
  20. Wet seatbelt!!!

    Problems & Issues
    Hi. I wonder if anyone has had the following experience: It has been raining here for the past two days... and I have noticed that my seatbelt, which feeds out of the driver-side suicide door, is WET. I am guessing that water has seeped into the door, but I cannot find an obvious gap or tear in...
