I was very happy with Yosi's constant contact.OK, I placed the order with Yosi at J's Garage yesterday. I received the bill this morning and paid for it by credit card without difficulties.
Quote from e-mail:
"Because we have attached the online credit card payment link, please arrange the payment when your convenient time if it is OK. We will arrange the parts as soon as possible."
I think this means "We'll order the parts as soon as you pay".
Hey, Alaskan_Toaster! Did Yosi keep you updated, like "your order has shipped"?
HEY!! Who you callin' OLD(er) (I'm 45 years young, on my way to 137..... )!! :-D:-DAny metal part of the car would suffice for the ground really. ......
All in all, it's an easy mod to do - just aggravating to get at for us older guys.
My wife is gonna love it.You guys are going to love this mod! I mean it just makes sense and Honda should have done this from jump street. Period!
Amen on making the wife happy - Happy Wife, Happy Life!!My wife is gonna love it.
Hey chozn! Where did you route your wires? I'm thinking I'll route them behind the glove box, but I can't figure out those releases on the inside of the box work.

In regards to wire routing, there is a lip, once you drop the glovebox you'll see it, on the back side of the bottom lip of the g-box hole. I tucked mine right there, then took my wire coat hanger (very handy during this mod), taped the wire to it, and carefully fed it straight through to the other side. It does go through, just don't push too hard. You can't even see where I put the wires, VERY nice.....
Here's a link to cabin filter replacement, might help in glovebox removal issues:
Sounds like a plan. If you look at my earlier post (responding to Chozn's dilemma before he found out that it was the switch) with the pix showing where I spliced in, there is an arrow showing where I grounded mine. There is a bolt almost directly above the harness I grounded mine to, works well and I didn't have to go multimeter searching..... :lol:.......I've got the wires routed behind the dash ... very slick! Next is tap into the driver's side wires, fix my ground, take the door apart and route the other end of the wires. I think I'll do a hillbilly rig and run the wires under the existing non-switch plate and have an externalized switch under I get Yosi's part.
The part number I have for the switch is 35380-S9V-A02ZB=the grey color35380-S9V-A02ZA=the grey color
35380-S9V-A02ZD= The Black Color AKA Graphite Black
...<<<$10 at the dealer....
Edit: BTW the colors vary from A to G. Greys, Black & Beige-like. I'm guessing the actual switch is the same if one wishes to customize a bit.
