mds9185: I cheated. I bent the cable retention tab on the old one to get the cabke
out and my replacement was made by doorman so the retention slots were
closer to the cable. I simply put one loose cable on one end and the other
I grabbed with needle nose and rotated it into place. It was tight but it
worked. A little combination of luck and experience got the job done in 15
ScubaCat3: There's a shim glued onto the outside of the original hinge that should be
transferred over to the new one. Not really mandatory but it was put there
for a reason so I figure it's probably a good thing.
RICHARD BRASS: thank you for this awesome instructional video, I didn't realize the entire
van had to be taken apart just to change those roller and brackets, one
door already don't work and the other is clicking so I am going to have to
do both doors and this video let me know i'll need more time than I have
right now.... Thanxxxx again...
James Brown: Thanks for the great video Dayne! Helped me a tonne replacing the centre
roller on my 2007. 90 min including 45 searching for the clip ring on the
pin after it went flying. Cable was loose enough didn't need to take
anything off the inside. Much appreciated.
Peter Greenwald: Dayne, Thanks for the great video . . . made for a great diy project for me
and my son.
VinnyPizza6679: Hey man, thanks for the video, super easy after watching it. Replaced mine
this morning, took about 1h45m but that included vacuuming when I saw what
the van floor looked like. Thanks again!
sethtwice: Nice job. Better than most diy videos out there. Check out my channel Honda
Street Garage for bigger project videos. Thanks!
Duvelmademedoit: Thanks, I have a 2008, basically the same job, but the tensioner release is
a little different. Mine is all fixed with great help from this video.
Gabe Bonnie Ledford: Thank you, Dayne! This was exactly what I needed to get the confidence to
replace the roller on my 2001.
Forrest Elliott: WHERE did you get the rollers?
Bedfordfalls Propertysolutions: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU You just saved me Hundreds of dollars Much
Dayne Wright: I do have written directions and more details at my site listed above in
Vjc1969: Great job, this video helped me do the job myself and saved me hundreds!
For the 2006 odyssey you do not need to take anything off inside the car.
There is enough slack in the cable to remove/replace the part. Took me 45
minutes and cost 75 bucks. Easier than you think. Careful when jacking up
the door, sometimes it slides, be careful it doesn't fall off.
cookingfordads: Cool, do you really need to take off the interior as you didn't end up
tightening it after all?
John Blazey: Thanks so much! This was a great video and it really showed all the
critical steps to help me get the job done!
CarrotsRule OuO: hey this video is wicked cuz my moms car the automatic door on the left is
messed up than they got it fixed and one other lady came and dragged and
forced the door opened untill it made a noise and stopped so my father
pushed it closed and put signs on the windows the said automatic sliding
doors be aware
teresadapp: Honda service guys thought I was nuts when I told them to just give me the
part, and I'd replace it myself. Thinking that me being a 29yr old woman
might have had something to do with it ;) Watched your video, and replaced
it no problem! Thanks so much... you saved me a couple hundred bucks!!!
cookingfordads: cool thanks. maybe ill video it when I try it. thanks for posting.
A.G. M.: Well, my Honda Odessy side door just fell out of its track and the side is
all scratched-up-people with normal fortune would only experience trouble
with their door--mine falls off and renders our primary vehicle- useless. I
REALLY HATE THIS ODYSSEY AND OTHER HONDA VEHICLE PURCHASES IVE MADE (THE
ELEMENT). THEY DO NOTHING BUT MALFUNCTION. I FEEL LIKE MY HEADS GOING TO
EXPLODE!!!!! I need to see an exorcist.
Julia Shull: Would it work just the same on my 2010 Honda Odyssey?
pushiga100: Thanks for the video- helped me get it done- also thanks to the posters
that said you don't have to take the interior or exterior panels off- saved
some time. Wasn't too bad at all. Needle nose pliers was it.. Thanks!
presward: Great Video. I have to do this same procedure. Thanks
gabygybonu: thank you for sharing this...great video; can I ask from where you've order
the part? thx
Shannysgirl5: Good video. This really helped me. Got it done under 2 hours. Thanks a
Brian Geniusz: Fantastic! Used this video to replace the rollers on my 2000 Odyssey. Took
it all apart changed the roller and put all back without issue. I agree
that I probably didn't need to take so much of the interior apart but that
didn't slow me down too badly. Now I am ready to replace the driver's side!
I'll wait until it goes bad. Lol
haunce: Good vid, but to all those 2006 and up (probably the older ones too) JUST
TRY REMOVING THE CABLES FROM THE ROLLER BEFORE YOU DISASSEMBLE YOUR
INTERIOR. I rarely follow instructions, bu this time I did... took apart
the interior, broke some stuff along the way..mechanism inside is
different. I just used needle nose pliers and swapped out rollers and never
messed with the stuff inside. Maybe I just got lucky, but I wish I had not
taken everything apart for no reason...
Comprezzed: Nice video. I unbolted the part from the door, supported the door like you.
Then I was able to bend one of the cable tabs out of the way to get the
cable ends free. The part then came right off. The rollers are designed for
1/10 scale radio control car duty! I am an engineer, and whoever designed
those and approved that design at Honda should be decommissioned. Cut off
the old roller posts, tap 1/4-20 threads and use bolts for posts. Flat
heads work well. Make new plastic rollers. Done!
Alexis Figueroa: todos los comentarios no mean resulto el problema de slide right door 2005
odysseys no trabaja del main swicht tengo que abrirla manual nesesito
respuesta . grasias.
lagranodotcom: mine kind of sick would this help if i did this?
Ralph Smith: Thank you. Lets me squeeze a few more miles out of my car.
2800video: Great stuff! Thanks for taking the time to video and sharing!!. A neat
additional info would the Honda part number for the assembly :-) I know I
can find it online but since you already went through this it is a small
effort for you and huge benefit for everyone else.
Steve Railsback: Great instructions. Worked with my 08 Ody. Couple notes. This job can be
done without removing the interior, but loosening the tension does make
replacing the roller easier. Also, unless you need the female assembly
(attaches to door), just order the male assembly (goes to cable) - will
save you about $15. Replacing the male assembly is easy as removing the pin
in the hinge, replacing the part, and putting the pin back in (took about 2
minutes to do).
Cindy Scott: Thanks so much for this helpful video! If you have a 2007 or newer, you may
need a 2nd video to understand the newer tensioner. I can't post a link but
it's titled "2007 Honda Odyssey sliding door cable tension" by Jeffrey
Sicat. Thanks so much to you both! You saved us a ton of money and my van
door is fixed in time my new kindergarteners first runs through the
elementary drop off lane. :)
Adnan Khan: Hi Dayne, Any sugguestion on why I am having this problem with my door. I
post the short video please see and let me know if you know what it could
be. I cant put the link, but if your search for this, it will come up
"Honda Odyssey 2007 Problem with the sliding door - video1" Thanks in
LeGeNdArYGTBuLL3T: i just wanted to know how to get that track panel off, it rattles way to
much! and only on the passenger side!, thanks, going to go fix some rattle!
5watchman5: Great video! Make sure the new rollers come with the assembly below the two
wheels to attach the cables! Mine did not. Once I got the right part, I was
able to remove the old one and replace the new one without taking apart the
interior. The key is to use a pair of needle nose pliers to stretch the
cable a bit. Attach the rear cable first. Be careful not to break off the
end of the cable!! Interior is a bit of a job to take apart. Glad to have
the door working properly again. Thanks.
extremescene4u: Does anyone know if it is the same to fix the power sliding door on the
driver's side? That is the problem that I am having.
Lance T. Osborne: Thanks Dayne! You rock!
Dayne Wright: @adnan I am not sure about your issue because I don't have a lot of
experience with the 2007+ models. I will check out your video and see if I
have any ideas.
stewardsproductions: Thanks for the great video
Martin Bussieres: Hi Dayne, Great videos!! I dont seem to find a fix for this problem:
Odyssey 2006 EX, the passenger sliding door closes and then after 2 or 3
seconds, it opens very slightly as if the rubber wsa pushing it out and the
sensors then go off when I drive. Do you know the issue? Thanks. M from
margaret agha: Thanks for the very helpful video. I will be using this once it gets warm.
Can you post a list of the tools and about how long this actually took, per
Jeff Doward: You don't need to take apart any of the trim--interior or exterior. Move
the bracket to the corner where it goes around the door frame. Slide it out
of the groove and remove each of the cables with needle nose pliers. In
order to line the cable up with the slot in the bracket, move it back and
forth around that bend in the track. To put the second cable in the slots
start itwith the pliers and then used a flathead to lever it into the slot.
jasper60103: I watched both of your videos. Thanks for sharing. I have a 2000 Honda
Odyssey with a problem opening the driver's side sliding door. It doesn't
kick-out fully when you try to open it with the door handle (or switch).
I've decided I would like to make it a manual door at this point. I figure
you have to disconnect the cable from the motor to allow it to slide
freely. Does this sound right? If so, I was wondering if you knew how to
Dayne Wright: Yes. This will work for either side door. I replaced the driver side before
I filmed this one.
David Collins: Thanks for taking the time to create and post this video. Very thorough and
shierip miwiener: great job. helped alot. keep it up.thanks
SirAndacar: Hey Dayne. Thanks very much for this. My 03 has working, if balky doors.
The one on the passenger side seems to have a bad switch in the outside
door handle, and won't close when you lift the handle. How much of a hassle
is that to fix?
haunce: I took apart my interior to find I did not need to after all. My '06 had a
different mechanism and I did not see how to loosen it. Come to find out, I
easily changed out the roller and really had no need to tear apart
everything even though I already had...
videobyallen: My door has been broke for a year. Not anymore!!! Thanks bro!!!
