I spent an hour trying to remove the covers from my elements steering column to replace the ignition switch, concerned about breaking the 15 year-old plastic.

After I gave up for the day I did a thorough search of the Honda documentation I had for my Element and found only one place where the steps of removing the covers were described in detail - in the 2011 security system installation instructions.

You can see the tabs on the top cover. Press against the corresponding points of the lower cover in the order A,B, C to release.

Here's a complete copy of those directions. See pages 2-3. The directions for the earlier models seem to be the same but lack some details. (The 2011 version has a line drawing of the view of the 2003 instrument cluster :).)

If I didnt use my experience to save other members time and effort, there'd be no point in my being in this club.
