  1. Stopping radiator leak from top of radiator

    Maintenance and Service
    Hi, I've seen a number of posts about finding a radiator leak or stopping hose leaks but not about leaking from top of the radiator that is held down by the metal clamp that goes all around the top. I can see the fluid (at this point basically water) dripping or bubbling out of the seal between...
  2. Banjo Bolt and Washers

    Problems & Issues
    Anyone know the size for the banjo bolt and washers? I replaced my right rear caliper a few months ago. My brake warning light came on yesterday because of the fluid level. Found the soft line has a persistent but slow leak at the banjo bolt that must only leak under pressure. I don't see...
  3. New (to me) 2003 EX With List of Things I've Noticed So Far

    Hello all! This is my first post and it will be a lengthy one with a list of the current odd things I've noticed since buying this used 2003 EX 2WD AT with 43,000 miles a few weeks ago. I have done a number of searches online and through this forum to try and understand what they could be, so...
  4. Water Leak during rain resulting in water in passenger footwell

    Problems & Issues
    I have a water leak that is causing pooling of water in the passenger foot well, both on top of and underneath the flooring/padding. The issue happens when the vehicle is parked and is exposed to heavy rain. I have had the AC condenser line blown out and that wasn't the issue, so I am convinced...
  5. Found coolant pooled in an area on top of the tranny

    Problems & Issues
    Picked up this E an hour away a couple of weeks ago and drove it back w/ no issues, except that I caught a whiff of burning coolant as I stepped out. I went to take a more thorough look at it today and saw a patch of wet surface underneath the car, I don't think it's the rad though as there was...
  6. Leaky weather stripping / windows

    Problems & Issues
    Both of my doors up front have developed leaks. Beads of water form on the inside weather stripping at the tops of the windows -then drip down onto the arm rest where the window/door controls are. There are 2 lines of weather stripping around the doors. One on the door and another on the car...
  7. Front Crank Seal Leak (Cost)

    Maintenance and Service
    I've looked and looked at forums and can't seem to find out the going rate for a crank seal job...Yes before you ask, it is leaking from the crank :) Please post actual figures not just guesses and location in US...Thanks in advance
  8. Rear Strut Seepage (leak)?

    Problems & Issues
    Hello all, I recently went to Honda with my 2005 Element to get a oil change and when I returned they advised me the rear drivers side strut was leaking and $616.00 should cover the replacement. I never take a single opinion so I went to a independent repair guy who said he saw some seepage...

  10. 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...
  11. 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...
