Typically most Honda Elements will comfortably seat on ly four people. Two in front, two on raised seats in the rear.

It is much easier to remove the back seats than to flatten them out and store them to the side as the sears have been designed to do.

How do you protect the AC condenser on a Honda Element?

Note: the air conditioning coils (condenser radiator) are exposed on the front grill - clearly visible through the lower grill openings. Unlike practically any other vehicle, this radiator is not protected from sizeable flying rocks,etc. This has been the case at least through the 2007 model year. See: I bought some mesh wire from the hardware store, cut it to size,painted it black,and used nylon tie wraps to secure it in place behind the grill. This helps protect the AC condenser.

The car came with 2 cards with the code written on them. If you can't find these cards or it was not written down in your owner's manual, you will have to remove the radio and get the serial # off it. With this serial # Honda can supply the code. Better write it down for future battery replacement. found mine on the inside of the fuse box cover under the hood (03 element) Also found mine on the inside of the fuse box cover under the hood. It's a 5-digit number and is not labeled. Thanks to previous poster for info! Answer Bingo! These hints helped me find mine (03 element). It was on the door jamb inside the hatchback at the top. (I think that's where the radio antenna comes through to the roof. Maybe they thought that was a logical place to put it!)

How to change the battery on a Honda Rebel?

Remove right cover (just below the seat) by removing the single screw on the lower right of the cover and popping it off. Disconnect the negative (on the left) terminal first, then the positive with a Phillips screwdriver. Watch for the loose little nuts held within the battery terminals if your replacement battery doesn't have them. Remove the rubber battery strap - probably easiest by unstrapping from the left. Install replacement by doing these instructions backwards. Remember to connect positive terminal first.

What is the stereo code for a 2003 Honda Element?

I found the following answer here ( after I had my battery replaced and couldn't use my radio. I followed the steps, and I have music again!

1. First, you need make sure your stereo is off, then hold down the 1st & 6th preset buttons for the radio while turning the stereo back on.

2. A batch of 8 numbers (your stereo's serial code) will appear for about 20 seconds. Write them down.

3. Contact your local Honda dealer and let them know you need the 5-digit code to unlock your stereo and then give them the 8-digit serial code you got from the 2nd step. They will give you the 5-digit code that you can then enter into the stereo by again turning on the stereo and pushing the according preset buttons.

4. The stereo will give you 10 tries before it locks you out as a safety feature and then you will have to wait an hour or disconnect the battery and try again. Hopefully you can enter the code in fewer than 10 tries anyway.

5. Enjoy your stereo!

How do you reset the maintenance light on a Honda Accord 1994?

Are you refering to the "Check Engine yellow light" or the little square box near the bottom of the display panel center section? When scheduled maintenance is required the normal green color in the square box will change color to yellow. It is to remind you that the routine maintenance according to the owners manual is due. To change it back to the normal green color "insert you ignition key into the slot below the box and press in" this will reset to the normal position. I have a 1994 Honda accord LX since it was new and is now 14 years old-belive me this is the correct procedure according to the owners manual. Ethan McKay

Maintance indicator light on a Honda Element came on what is it?

If it is just the Maintence Required light then it is just telling you the oil needs changing or a scheduled maintence is due. Your owners manual will list the exact item that needs attention. If, on the other hand it is the Check Engine light, then the computer has detected a problem with the emissions system and you need to take it to a professional.

-with the car off, hold down the 1st and 6th radio buttons and then turn the car on

-the radio will display the 8 digit radio serial number, write it down

-phone your Honda service dept. and tell them the serial no. they'll give you the code.

Answer for Decoding an Honda ElementI've seen the codes in 3 places:

1) Owners manual which came with the car, the VIN # and the stereo codes are in mine and should be in your.

2) Open glove box, seating in driver seat look at the opened glove box, I have a factory sticker which has my radio code on it. I don't think it says radio code but it is. The sticker is on the side wall of the outer glove box, not on the inside and it can only be seen when box is open.

3) From the Honda website go to the owners site ( ) sign up and log in they may have your code there based off of you VIN #

Good luck I hope this helps,
