  1. Replacing lower part of front bumper??

    Exterior
    Hey guys! Just joined the Element crew with a new to me 2008 Element EX-P. It has the color matched front end with textured plastic lower. Here's my issue: the car came with a few holes punched in the textured plastic of the front bumper so I'd like to replace it. When I look, it seems like...
  2. Front end vibration

    Problems & Issues
    Yes, I know this is a pretty common topic. But there are so many potential causes, my hope is that with a good description someone can help narrow my problem down a bit. 2003 Element, AWD and auto trans, 134K miles, a recent purchase so I don't know its history. I just had the rear struts...
  3. Front Strut Longevity?

    Maintenance and Service

I'm thinking possibly a loose heat shield of some...
  6. Rear brake pads worn before fronts???

    Maintenance and Service
    Hi, I brought my '04 E in to Honda dealer for front pad replacements. Upon checking, the service rep said that the front pads have 4mm left but that the rear are at 2mm. I have 55,000mi. Does it make any sense that the rears would have more wear than the front? I have never had my brakes worked...
  7. 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...
