Thank you for taking the time to do some reasearch and replying to my messages.I greatly appreciate it. As far as my problem goes, I thought about taking that trim out but I dont think it would help.I did contact the dealer where I bought the car and they say it is probably the latch itself. And if I took it to them they would remove the drivers seat and force the door panel off from the inside most certainly breaking most of the clips and possibly damaging the panel itself. They would then have to drill into the latch assembly (which is an enclosed unit
with components encased in a hard white plastic block shaped unit). To open the door. They would then replace the latch unit and reattach the panel and trim. And all for only $450. Yes $450.I am so pissed off.I am going to spend this entire weekend ripping my car apart and the part itself is going to cost me $104 +tax. Not to mention the fact that my car needs its 3rd transmission.I got 62k out of the original and then had that replaced at a cost of $5500 only to have it fail at 128k (58k on the trans). Now they want another $4900 to replace this one as Honda "doesnt repair their transmissions". They only replace them. HHHHMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. HOnda?STAY AWAY!
P.S I dont think that it is because I am hard on cars. My last was a 1992 mitsubishi eclipse 4cyl 5sp.I had 186,000 miles on it when I gave it to my brother. In the 9 years I had it the only things I had to replace (other than brake pads and wiper blads. Etc) was 1 cv joint and the cat converter. Total cost of repairs.$350. The clutch was still the original and was as tight as it was the day I bought that car.
