Did this video help you?

Gary Tharp: Thanks very much for the great video.!! This will keep me from breaking my dashboard bezel. I've been without the fuel gauge lite for over a year. Didn't know how to get to the bulbs & was NOT going to pay the dealer that much $$$ for this.. I change my own cabin air filter thanks to YouTube videos..

Quake Bot: Just replaced all nine with O'Reilly Auto Parts EIK2721. 10 lamps for 8 dollars. This is the same slim profile 2721 everyone else is talking about.

five12gal: thank you!

DtoWnSux1: Please tell me what size lights you used in this video. GREATTTTTTTTTTT VIDEO BTW WAS VERY HELPFUL

macibes: Responder a este vídeo... I got a problem with the element stock alarm can you help me?

Nikki Dininny: Can you tell me where you got the replacement bulbs and the name/size of them? Much needed direction, dealer wanted $300 just to change the bulbs.

DtoWnSux1: anyone positive on that size 74 working on a 2003? please let me know . thanks

Joe Johnson: Awesome thanks so much for doing this - I just ordered some bright LED's for my Element and am gonna install them myself!

reggaemash: Great detail. Thank you very much. Looking forward to replacing my lightbulbs instead of paying the mechanic. Also plan to install some fog lights as well. Thanks again.

PC800Fixes: Good video, thanks for posting. I might just do all the lights at the same time since I'm assuming that others will burn out soon. Are they all the same? How many of them are there?

Nick Maze: Great tutorial! Now do a video for my 88 Toyota pickup!

Gary S.: Thanks. Not only did you save me an hour of dealer's labor, you have given me the confidence to replace the two odometer bulbs myself. Suspect they did not burn out at the same time, but the odometer is dark. But I can see the numbers with a bright LED flashlight. If you don't mind, how many miles do you have on your 2003 Element?

ajchien: I've only bought my bulbs from either the dealership (with bases included) or an auto parts store like pep boys. I think I listed the bulb number in the description box. IIRC 2721 bulb fit both my element perfectly while the 74 bulb did not fit (too big). If you were looking for it online, I guess I would search for those bulb numbers.

EllaTV: THANKS FOR POSTING THIS... From start to finish, :16 minutes, and I saved over $260 by NOT going to the dealer. My local dealer wanted $300 to replace the 9 (7+2) bulbs in the instrument cluster of my 2003 Element. After finding this video here I started calling various Honda dealers for replacement bulbs. The prices ranged from $3.50 to $7.00 (needless to say I went for the lower price - and why is the same bulb priced differently depending on which dealership you call?).

angel331file: Hey Aj Where can you locate The automatic transmission module? Pls let me know ? Email me thanks a lot

jborozzi: hi there! well today i did an oil change a filter change and i took the dash apart and changed a couple dead bulbs. worked great a 2005 is like so much the same. i wasnt confused at all! thank you. i saved alot of moenney on things that needed to be done. if you ever do a video on the part in the middle the air conditioner bulbs and the park drive thing let me know because ofcourse mine are out...lol thanks ;)

CaliCal68: if i replace the whole speedometer. should i remove the neg cable from the battery?

Luis Gutierrez: Explanation very clear, thanks so much.

myklobe: OMG, thank you for this video. The tachometer needle on my 2007 Element got loose (showing like 2000 RPM off at all times) and I needed to know how to take out the cluster. Worked like a charm! Thanks!

CarlosRhai: Thanks. I was too lazy to drive all the way to the dealer so I just switched the bulbs around and fixed the odometer lights that was out. I switched the bottom two with the top two. I will get new bulbs layer on.

five12gal: i got the two bulbs (which light the odometer) from the dealer for five dollars and change, and it only took 5 minutes to replace them myself thanks to your video. the part number, which a regular auto parts store may be able to cross reference, is 35505-SCV-A11.

bboybaodown: i want to buy blue LED bulbs to replace every lights in the cluster, but do you know what size they are?

Nikki Dininny: Thank you very much!!

DtoWnSux1: Do you need to do any soldering if you want a colored led light?

Danny G: This is a VERY GOOD video. The only thing i would suggest is while you have everything apart maybe you would just replace all the bulbs.A time saver later on. again great video keep up the good work

ajchien: @CaliCal68 I tend to disconnect the battery any time Im working on something electrical.

themadcrew1: excellent, thanks for posting

donald arrieta: great video. but what about the ODO light bulbs reference #

ajchien: @PC I think the 2 bulbs for the odometer are different than the rest of them.

flyingcatfish: Thank you for this video, ajchien. Very helpful.

Mike price: Thanks for the video! It saved me a whole bunch of time! :)

Asfkd1: Hey great video man saved me wallet XD

ajchien: @mcnicdininny I got my bulbs from the dealership parts department. I think they cost me between $5-7 each.

ReverseCycoIogy: hi can you give me links or where to buy odometer bulbs for my 05 element, maybe amazon? thanks for the vid.

ajchien: @bboybaodown i dont know what size your LEDs would be. I do know that other folks have succesffully used a #74. you should confirm elsewhere.

Lomanoy Lila: Good job.

TheMCMtv: Very helpful

macibes: what # lights are those?

Stve Hargtn: THANKS!!!! so much

Mike Lig: do any Element owners out there have a squeak in the dashboard area above the glove box? I am reluctant to pull access panels as that area is where the air bag is but while that squeak is intermittent it is extremely annoying when it appears! Help. Thanks

bradleyhayman: great and helpful vid! I got cluster out, but I'm having real problems removing bulbs from the twist lock bases without breaking them. Using the padded pliers, they won't budge. Super frustrating...

ajchien: Eureka!!!! Well, instead of paying $5-$8 per bulb/socket from the dealership, I found that sylvania bulb 2721 fits perfectly, at the price of $4.99 for a 2 pack. Not a big difference if you're just replacing 1 or 2 bulbs, but if you're doing all of them, it adds up.

ajchien: @macibes I got my bulbs direct from the dealer. I couldnt find an exact aftermarket replacement. Some people say the #74 works, but not for me.

Luis Gutierrez: Can you please post how to change the Subwoofer amplifier????? Thanks

ajchien: Oh yeah, the one time I bought a bulb online, it was the wrong bulb. :/

macibes: @ajchien thanks man keep up the good work I always use your videos,do you still have the element? keep posting stuff up man

foxman5150: THANKS! This is exactly what I needed. Honda dealer wanted to charge me 2 hours labor for this 20 minute job. Saved me over $230.

RedPorscheMM: So helpful and clear. Thank you so much for posting this video! I can now see how fast I am going and how much fuel I have left:)

ThisNameIsBanned: Depends. If you are cruel, and you want your legacy to be like you would be good, it might be quite easy to identify that as a lie, so you dont have that much controll over it as you might think.
