  3. Rough Idle, Blinking Check Engine Light

    Maintenance and Service
    Long story short, I adjusted the exhaust valves on my '03 E two days ago and noticed that after I opened up the valves to 0.30 mm lash, the tappets can be heard more loudly during idle. I decided that was probably not unusual because otherwise the engine purred along nicely, and after driving...

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I'm interested in getting an HID Kit for my baby and I was wondering who was any good. I know I should get an AC type of Kit but what watt ballast should I get and where should I buy them. I'm also curious what color or brightness I should get (6500K 8000K)? Thank you. Anything helps!

    Hello! I have looked everywhere on line for the part number and/or place to order a replacement rear interior lamp housing unit for a 2007 Honda Element EX. Specifically, it is the interior light in the rear where the cargo area is (see picture). When I bought it, the switch was already missing...
  7. Added outlet and Ambient Lighting

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I recently got my 2010 silver Element EX 4wd, and I absolutely love it. It's my first car, and I cant imagine anything more perfect. It had a few flaws, which i have begin fixing. I needed a way to charge my phone without running a wire across the dash, so I decided to add an outlet. Using a...

  9. Eww-an E's HVAC l.e.d. retrofit

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I did this mod a few months back and I thought I'd share it with all you fine people.:-) I know in the past a few others have done this mod, but since everyone seems to do their mods somewhat differently, I'd share my version. Here's what the retrofitted l.e.d. HVAC control unit looks like...
  10. New BlingLight Install - lots of photos

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    So got my BlingLights installed over the weekend and love the look and mod upgrade. The fogs work well at night and brighten the horizon. I can't wait until it RAINS here again to "really" test them out. Here are some photos of my install. I got most of help from this thread below by ApriliaGuy...
  11. Door light - in progress

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I'm starting to add lights at the bottom of the doors. I want them to turn on when the doors open for added safety (i'll wire them to the dome lights). I have an 2007 LX, so no overhead console (I added an ebay mirror with 2 dome lights...more on that later). 1. OOPS....I pulled tooooo...
  12. Map Light Filters

    Ok, so I have a 2005 E with the EX package with a manual transmission. I'm in the process of putting larger tires and a roof rack and other off road type accessories and one thing that occurred to me was that when I use the map lights at night I completely obliterate my night vision. I was...

  15. 4WD vs. AWD

    Under The Hood / Performance
    Honda refers to the Element drive mechanism as a 4WD system yet many reviewers speak of it as an AWD. Actually Honda calls it a "Real Time 4-Wheel Drive" Is it really a 4WD system or AWD.? This came to mind as I just ordered one of the 4WD body emblems from HA. I started wondering if it...
  16. AT shift indicator (at shift lever, not on dash): Panel removal and bulb replacement

    Maintenance and Service
    When I am driving, the steering wheel block the view of my guages slightly. I find myself looking over to the shifter to determine the current gear, but the lights on the shifter do not indicate this very well (none of the gear numbers/letters appear brighter or darker where the shifter is...
