Center console removal/access

Hi to all, this is my first post. The power outlet in my center console storage compartment has come apart and I was hoping someone could tell me how to access that area. I tried from the back but couldn't get into the right area. I'm sure the thing just needs to be tightened and Honda has told me the power adapter must be replaced. Thanks, Rick.

Check out the diagrams and instructions in the 4th and 5th posts of this thread. If the 07 is the same as 03-05, then you have to start with the dash trim and work your way back.

I don't see any reason to do this yourself if you are under waranty. Unless you just want to save a trip to the Dealer (and waiting time).

Maybe the Dealer said it need to be replaced because they seen the exact same failure before.

Thanks tim.s This was exactly the information I need. I'll give it a try tomorrow. Thanks so much for the quick reply. I got about half way into it today and gave up cause I just could not figure how to free up the front part of the console. I don't think this problem would be covered under the extended warranty as my Honda dealer never suggested they would cover it. Rick.

Well, my power outlet in the center console has come apart, as well. Guess I'll be giving this a try this weekend.

Richard B. did you need to remove the front center console pieces (in the front dash) before you could remove the center console (that sits between the front seats)? It looks to me that steps #1 and 2 (on the linked thread) really are not necessary removal items.

TIA

David

sfhondapilot.... Yes they are necessary as there are some fasteners you need to remove behind the pieces. Fallow the link instructions and you won't go wrong. The whole console comes out in one piece. Rick.

Just happened to me as well

The power outlet in the center console compartment is loose. So I guess I get to remove/reinstall the center console next weekend as well, oh boy. I like Honda, but I really wish they knew what Loctite is, I have found lots of loose fasteners all around the inside of my 2003 (out of warranty) Pilot.
