REPLACING BULBS

2006 Honda Element

Electrical problem
2006 Honda Element 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 44000 miles

I have a 2006 Honda Element EX-P all wheel drive. The light is out on the gear selector window. How do I remove the cover around the shift stick to replace the bulb?

Hi marcopollo,

You would need to do the following:

1. Remove the center lower cover.

Remove the clips (A) and detach the clips (B) then remove the center rear cover (C).

2. Remove the shift lever console trim.
Using the handle end of a hammer (A), carefully insert the handle through the center lower cover opening, and push on the back side of the shift lever trim (B) to start to release the clips.

Pull out the shift lever trim (A) to release the remaining clips (B), hooks (C), and disconnect hazard warning switch connector (D).
