djwak59: Thanks for the great vid. Very informative and understandable !
I have an 03 that has an odd problem and hoped that by watching this vid,
I'd solve it.
Randomly, ALL my dash lights will go out. Not just the cluster lights, but
the radio, A/C dial lights, and the mirror adjustment button. They'll come
back on again by themselves. I thought that maybe, a bulb in the cluster
could be loose and causing a break in the circuit (?).
Did your 03 ever do this ? Thanks again for the Element videos.
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
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 .
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
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.
baotran: 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
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
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.
