  3. Rear outlet always hot mod variation.

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    So I just got my new element and am going camping this Memorial Day weekend. the rear outlet mod is going to be very useful, but I was thinking about trying something different.

  9. 07 SC with rear squeaking (video included), where is it coming from?

    Problems & Issues
    I know, there's tons of threads on "squeaking" and the rear end. I have had this issue for a while, actually since putting my coil overs on 2 years ago. There's an annoying (loud) squeak noise that's driving me nuts and passengers always ask what the sound is and where it's coming from. The...
  10. Interior Rattle

    Problems & Issues
    I'm sorry if there is a thread started for this issue, but I couldn't find one. I have slowly started to develop a rattle/clicking on the inside of my Element. It wasn't a big deal at first, as it only happened on rough/dirt roads. However, it has started to occur over minor bumps, even on...

    Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    I've had my Ksports for 2 years now, and always notice an annoying popping/clunking at low speeds (0 to 30mph). Beyond 40mph, it disappears... This noise has been ongoing since I got them installed and just shrugged it off. I did a search and read that is might be a leaky strut, but there's no...
  12. 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...

  14. ACC Power and Continuous Power in Rear Cargo Area

    Mobile Electronics
    I have an application that requires continuous power and ignition sense in the rear of my Element. I know I can use the 12v port in the rear for ignition sense. And I know I can mod the 12v port in the rear for continuous power. But I need both. :-) I'm trying to avoid running additional...
  15. '05 Rear Damper Replacement

    Maintenance and Service
    First post...please be gentle... I am replacing the rear dampers on my '05 EX 4WD @ 72K miles. They were previously replaced by the dealer at 40K miles with OEM KYBs. I thought I would try this myself this time and save some money. I am replacing these with the KYB GR-2/Excel-G dampers...

    Hi. I have a 2007 Honda Element 4WD EX. Love it... except for being frustrated at the moment. After reading several great threads and having issues with two U-Haul locations and Honda wanting over $200 to install, I decided to install a hitch (U-Haul) and wiring harness (Honda) myself. I...
  17. Rear wiper help

    Maintenance and Service
    I went to the autoparts store and got a replacement wiper for the rear of my 05 element. I ripped the old one off, threw it away, and can't seem to get the new one on! After doing some searching, I think throwing away the blade that I had was a big mistake, and I should have simply refilled...
  18. 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...
