Haven't heard of a recall, but someone else just posted in the problems & issues forum that their tach needle fell off.
I just checked my Honda owner link page, and there's no mention of a recall under the recall tab.
I wonder if it's a recall like "if it happens bring it in and we'll fix it" or if it's an "everybody bring your E in to get a new instrument panel."
And I notice that you're in Canada...perhaps Honda of Canada is quicker about notifying owners of recalls than Honda USA.
So far my gauge needles are still in place, and I'm hoping they don't go anywhere!
here is my question with them replacing the whole unit.
Do they calibrate the odometer to match what is on there or am I going to get a big orange sticker on my vehical again from honda due to replaced guage assembly?
So what if I decide not to bother? My needles are doing fine and there is no final date on the "product update" letter.
The part number on my order is slightly different. Perhaps because I'm in Canada? Attached is my work order.That is deffinately the part number for a guage cluster/meter assy.

One other thing ... when the vehicle was returned to me, I noticed that pointers were a solid white. I may be wrong, but IIRC, they were originally an orange/white color.
i know its been posted on few other threads about the recent recall with the defective gauge instrment cluster on 2007+ model elements. has any SC specific owners recieved this recall letter? i have yet to recieve one, so just curious if it affected the SC models as well?
and if i didn't get one, could i go to my local dealership and ask them to service that recall regardless of reciving the letter? thanks!
Okay, I've searched and searched but can't seem to find the answer, so sorry if the answer is already somewhere, but.....what is the difference between the instrument panel for the auto and stick tranny? I have a manual and I'm just curious what is different--and I like to be informed before I visit the dealership. Thanks.
The full explanation is that because the computer erased the data, the new panel had to be sent to a company that the state allows to program and certify the mileage on the odometer.
The service department should have recorded the mileage at the time of the replacement. If they didn't then I'd be on them like stink on... er, white on rice. If they recorded the mielage at the time of replacement, the TMU designation shouldn't be applied to your vehicle right? When I had my instrument panel replaced, my invoice has the actual mileage at the time and it matches the new one.Like analogy 134 said - somewhere on the vehicle. I would be foaming at the mouth mad if it were me. If you keep the car for its entire usable life, then no problem. But, NOTHING kills a cars resale value like a TMU (true mileage unknown). Even if you have the documentation to add it up, dealers run from them like a river during a spring melt. If they applied a sticker somwhere, cover it with a transparrent tape to protect it from fade or make a copy and put it back on. Keep meticulous records of maintenance and mileage if you plan to trade/sell it in few years. Again however, if you plan to drive it until the wheels fall off, then resale is non issue.
There isn't a lot too screw up. It not like the whole dash is being taken apart. Only 2 covers and 5 screws are removed. I have had the cluster out of my E at least 5 times and i don't have any rattles.Yeah, I know I probably should. I'm just a little worried that they will screw something up. I think I'd rather drive blind than have a dash rattle
