    Hey everyone, I just built the luggage rack you see on my E and I figured I would share it, in-case anyone wanted to see it or was planning on building their own. I'm not completely done with it.

  4. Rack and Pinion replacement

    Problems & Issues
    Does anyone have a few photos of a Honda Element with a leaking rack and pinion that they can share? I have been told that my 2003 EX with 150k miles needs a replacement. Doesn't seem far fetched, but when I look under my car I don't see a leak. But maybe if I saw an actual Element photo and...

  7. Element steering rack play (adding?)

    Problems & Issues
    I've had my '07 FWD 5MT (120K)for a number of years and it has always been a handful on the highway. Previous inquiries all yielded the same recommendation: alignment, but 2 alignments and 2 sets of tires made no difference. If you looked away from the road for a split second, you would be on...

  16. 2008 XM Reception with Gobi Rack

    So I got a Gobi roof rack about a year ago and I love it. The only problem is that my XM reception has been much poorer since then. Since the XM antenna is the base and not the mast, does anyone have any idea what I can do to improve reception? Most of the threads here refer to replacing...

    The aluminum angle brackets install directly onto the vehicle and the tracker foot locks into that. Also, the Get-a-Grip carriers are lockable with the locks included. The Old Town canoe emblem is riveted to the fairing so it's pretty much permanent. I can set up an auction or something if...
