My wife placed a credit card on top of the sliding cover in the center console area. Later, she slid the sliding cover towards the dash without first moving the card. When she did this, the door pushed the card underneath the cover and somewhere in a hidden area of the center console.

Does anyone have any clue as to how to get to this hidden area to recover the card?

Should the penalty for this be:

1. Relinquishment of her driving rights to the Pilot
2. Relinquishment of all credit cards since she obviously can't handle the responsibility.
3. All of the above
4. None of the above

Gordo...

The plastic trim along the bottom side of the console (from under the dash to about the middle of the console length) pops off pretty easily. Once you get this off, using a flashlight, you should be able to visualize the area under the console storage area. I expect that her card is either at the forward point of the console (i.e.- at the floor immediately under the dash) or perhaps under the forward section of the console itself.


Perhaps you could send your wife to a console operation certification course? :rolleyes:

Good luck!

I would see the car eating my wife's credit cards as a "feature". Don't ask questions, just tell her it's gone.

That is absolutely hilarious! I don't have a wife yet, but I going to make sure I remeber this if she ever gets out of hand with the credit card use.

The Pilot's Black Hole

this same thing happened to me with a parking pass. Guess we shouldn't put paper on top of that cover.

Really funny. Maybe the dealers will now advertise this as a new feature and charge mega-bucks !!

I lost an expense check that is probably less that the dealer would charge to retreive it. I opened both plastic trim pieces on both sides for the console and could not find it . I put my hand under the center of the console and could not feel the sliding cover so I am not sure where the check was eaten to??? I may try to get a replacement if I can??? Any other suggestions how to get something out from under the cover?? Thanks for any replies
regards,

Pilot black hole

I know there have been no posts on this thread in a while but it's still a very relevant topic. I also had a credit card go in and not come out with that slide in the center console. Here's what I did to retreive it:

Pull the plastic cover off both sides of the console (you need to remove the floor mats first). Once that's out of the way, you can pretty much see all the guts underneath it. Make sure you're on the driver's side - it's much easier access.

Anyway, you can "see" where stuff gets stuck in there. There is actually an extension of the shelf beyond where the slide goes and my credit card, 3 business cards and three gas receipts were all sitting on that shelf. A flashlight, screwdriver and a few taps of the slide door pushed them all to a point where I could grab them.

One gas receipt was from 2003 when gas was $1.86 a gallon......that hurt.

There is a BP station a few miles up the road from my house that closed and is now a car lot. They still haven't taken down the gas sign - it says regular is $1.89......memories, like the corner of my mind, misty water colored memories........

Good laughs. wwong's pads help keep this from happening. not a guarantee, but his pads are a little tacky, keeping stuff from sliding as much.

I totally agree with this response!!! Especially after you get the card out and destroy.

My Honda "PIRATE"

Once again, this site has saved me!

My "pirate" (as referred to by my 2 year old son) ate a photo card from my camera. Normally this wouldn't be such a big deal, but this card had 100+ pictures of my mom's surprise 65th bday. Something that is irreplaceable!

After reading this thread, I went out to the Pilot and pulled off those thingy's you were talking about. Then, with my trusty flashlight, I spotted the card wedged between some doomaflatchees under the console. I can not tell you how HAPPY this made me...and will make my mom when I call her in about 5 minutes!

My husband said I should get a job at Honda. Yeah, right. Perhaps if I brush up on my terminology a bit.

As an added bonus, there was some kind of filter on the driver's side that was covered in lint, so I got to clean that out. I have no idea what that was for, but it's good and clean now.

The only disappointment I had was that I was hoping to find some buried treasure along with the card. Oh well...a girl can dream!

THANK YOU...THANK YOU...THANK YOU!!!!!

P.S. all the credit card comments are a hoot!

You cleaned off the filter for the intake to the thermistor for the rear seat air conditioning. You did a little preventative maintenance without even knowing it!! That little piece won't burn out now in the future for you.

Good job!!
