  1. Open the trunk lid and disconnect the 2P connectors from the high mount brake light.
  2. Carefully remove the rear shelf and high mount brake light.
  3. Install the light in the reverse order of removal.

how do you get the rear deck out

Sorry about that, didnt even notice that in your "Already Tried..."

 

To aid in the removal, it is recommended that you use a "trim Panel Tool". Most of the times a flat-bladed tool should do the same.

 

  • Remove the trim as shown. To remove the rear shelf, remove the rear seat side bolster from each side and lock cylinder trim.
  • graphic

  • To remove the door sill trim and B-pillar upper trim, remove the side trim panel as necessary.

    I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

    Linda B.USA

    Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

    EdUSA

    HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

    SummerUSA

    I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

    Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

    Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
