Did this video help you?

Butch Wade: Thank you for this great video and post! This worked like a charm. I wish I read all of the comments before buying the bulbs at the dealer. The dealer only sells the bulb and socket in pairs. Thankfully I only bought two. Now I can buy the additional bulbs and replace them all! It's great to see the speedometer at night again. 

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 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.

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...

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

Luis Gutierrez: Explanation very clear, thanks so much.

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

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?

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.

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

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.

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

Asfkd1: Hey great video man saved me wallet XD

TheMCMtv: Very helpful

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

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?).

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.

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!

Jon Harper: This movie was hands down one of the best in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. Its good to see Cap finally get his dues. In my humble opinion Id say its on par if not surpassing Iron Man 1 and matching Avengers. But that's just my opinion.
