  1. Problems & Issues
    2005 Element EX w/110k (Automatic with AWD). Turning the steering wheel is not smooth….it requires some extra effort to get it off of straight forward. Once it starts turning, the effort required to turn the wheel goes back to what would be expected. It is kinda like driving a car with the...

    Hello all, I'm desperately looking for a pair of SSD roof rails that allow the mounting of rack cross bars for roof carry of items. SSD Performance no longer manufactures them and they do not have any left over, I've contacted them begging for a set. Do you have a set that you will sell...

    Just installed a Yakima Megawarrior on my E. The thing looks badass!! I'm so stoked, now she is ready for that cross country road trip! :razz:
  4. Greetings & Introductions
    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. I still need to put a sheet of expanded aluminum in the middle section and build a wind deflector...
  5. 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...

  8. 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...

    Hi, I'm looking to add roof rack (for kayak) and was wondering why alot of members are going with Thule and Yakima rather then OEM. I see OEM are now on sale for $205 from H & A. Any reason not to purchase OEM? Appreciate the input, Bob

    Hello all, I have a 08 EX Element, on which I have a Thule Rack that holds a Autohome Columbus rooftop tent. The tent is around 100 lbs, and the rating for the rack is 125lbs. This morning, Ichecked my rack before leaving home (as I do every once in a while) and notice that my rack was loose in...

    Can someone tell me what tool I will need in order to install the roof rack myself? Something "torque-ish?"

    Okay Ele-friends... I have had my '08 E for a month. I LOVE it and am totally stoked. I don't know much about vehicles, etc...but I need a rack. I am moving to Mexico and need to bring everything with me. I have see the 2-bar rack and then the little, like basket rack. So I have some...

    I purchased a 2004 Element and got a great deal - the only issue with the vehicle was that the roof rack cross bars are missing. It has never really posed a problem until now. I am moving across the country and would like to utilize the roof rack. Does anyone know where I can purchase cross...

    Hello! this is my very first post on the forum. Brand new user. I have a 2007 honda Element SC and I'm looking to put a hitch on it to carry a 2inch hitch mounted bike carrier. I've called the usual places around where I live (uhaul, autozone, a couple of private shops) with no success...
  17. Exterior
    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...

    I just got a sweet deal on Landing Pads (#9) and control towers for $90... they threw in a set of 48" bars as well. I know that the yakima site says its recommended 58" but I'd like to run the free ones until Im able to source some 58s cheaply. Could someone with a yakima setup measure and...
