Did this video help you?

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 minutes. 

MikeTheITGuy: 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 appreciated !!!!

Dayne Wright: I do have written directions and more details at my site listed above in the description.

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 bunch.

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 advance.

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 Montreal.

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 a side.

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 do this?

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 helpful. David

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!!!
