Check for screws or caps covering screws in the plastic trim.if there aren't any take a flashlight and look under the seat for clips that release the plastic, it may just pry off.

The seats are simply bolted to the floor. You'll need to remove the track trim pieces to see them. 14mm socket to remove them. The wiring can be disconnected easier once the seat is loose and can be tilted backward.

Honda Element Ex 2008 needs seat belt replacement instructions


There a is replacement guarantee in place wherein Honda states that they will repair or replace your stock Honda seat belts for the "usable life" of the vehicle.

The "usable life" portion of the agreement establishes some requirements that have to be met and are listed here:

1. Vehicle has a current registration & insurance (Under Federal,
State, Local Laws).
2. Legally titled within the USA or Canada (Honda North America)
3. Never been totaled by insurance or Federal/State/Local standards
4. Never had an airbag deployment / isn't throwing a code for the
SRS system

This warranty is separate from all other factory warranties for the car. So, you car does not have to be under it's 3/36,000 or other factory equivalent. It is warrantied directly through Honda and not a third party company. Any Honda dealership within North America is required to replace or repair the belts free of charge. There should be no charge to you for inspection or replacement costs.

There have been reports about some dealerships attempting to charge a fee for the "diagnostic" process to determine if the seat belt is indeed malfunctioning. However under this warranty Honda does not allow the dealership to do this. So, you just have to stick to your guns and the dealership will not end up charging you anything.

They don't cover seat belts which have been:
1. Cut, Shredded, Frayed by long term physical contact with sharp
objects such as knives or belt buckles
2. Altered beyond factory specification
3. Altered from factory locations
4. Frayed by rubbing against interior trim pieces
5. Damaged by altered interior panels
6. Impeded upon by non-factory interior installations

They will cover the seat belt replacement even if you have taken your inside trim apart so long as you haven't modified the seat belt or the trim surrounding the seat belt.

There is no reason that this request for repair cannot be 100% successful. The warranty is very simple and clearly stated. The key...meet the requirements.

Honda Ridgeline rear seat leg problem


honda now offers metal 9zinc) cable retractors for the rear seat legs thet are supposeed to retract automatically wher you forld the seaat up. About $8.00 each. You will need tow of them. one for each seat. atahe original ones were plastic so at least these are a better solution. The dealer printed out the instructions on how to repair this problem and the part numbers you will need to do so. Ask your local Honda dealer service tech for a copy of the Honda bullitin that was sent out about March 2011 on this issue. This bulliten is very helpfull. Mcgrath Honda in Elgin Ill. gave me a copy of it.
