2003 Honda Element HVAC Light Replacement




What do you think about this video?

Reid Whatley: Yes, indeed. What is the part number for the bulb?

Xai Thao: Exactly what bulb did you buy? Type? Model? 

spoonido: Well done, and thanks for uploading!

Mike Lig: Thank you so much for taking the time to make this video. It was very helpful.

mtaft00: Thanks for the great video. Have an '05. I didn't have to remove the plastic panel, just used a skinny small flat tipped screwdriver from the back to turn it that half turn, then tipped it over to let it fall out. The hardest part was figuring out how far to put the screwdriver into the edge when attempting to pop off the whole thing, without scarring my dashboard. I used a terrycloth towel to cushion the flat tip before applying leverage. I think it took me less than 10 minutes total.

kion2iu: Waw, that was quick..Thank you so much

flyingcatfish: Thanks for this helpful video, ajchien.

Gary S.: Thanks, ajehien, for your taking the time to show us how to replace a light bulb. Our 2006 fan blower light bulb appears to be burned out; therefore, I am wondering if I should replace the other bulbs, too? First I thought I could remove the switch from the front, but I am glad that I am watching your video. Our 2006 should be like your 2003.

creature957: Great help, Thanks! I found all you need to get the light out from the backside is a small long common tip screwdriver. Just give it a quarter turn and it comes right out. Bulb part number and nomenclature: 79629-S3V-A01 BULB, NEO-WEDGE

jborozzi: this is kind of what ifigured it would be like...but i wouldnt of unplugged anything without knowing what it is first. strange thing i swear i think i have a messed up element or its because my car payments are ending..LOL and they want things to break down so ill go looking for something again..my heat in my element is broke? when i switch the knob it kicks over it def sounds like it does but it blows freezing air. in baltimore its freezing here...totally sux. i just dont know what it is!!!!!

ranch151: THANK YOU! Very helpful video.

RedPorscheMM: Thanks for this very helpful video also. I used this video as well as your dashboard/instrument cluster video. Now everything is lights up!

MzThang765: Thanks! This was extremely helpful! :)

ajchien: I personally only replace the bulbs that go out. It's not too big of a deal for me to remove the dash parts.

ajchien: @kion2iu I got the bulbs from a Honda dealership. They were just a few bucks a piece. If you search online, some say that an aftermarket sylvania (#76?) bulb will work. except that when I tried that bulb, it did not fit exactly. so i went with OEM from a dealership.

joeyz2k: is it the same way to replace the bulbs on the crv climate control knobs?? ur vdeos are great!! thank you

kion2iu: Same problem here, my HVAC light is gone.Where did u get a new bulb from and what kind? Nice vids, got a 03 myself

ajchien: @mtaft00, I agree. I replaced the lights again, and a 3/16 flat screwdriver fits in the slot on the backside.

Richard Gragg: Very helpful for my 2008 Honda Element. I am a do-it yourselfer and was puzzled (without a shop manual) on how to do it. Worked like a charm.

Gary S.: Thanks for this answer, as I, too, was going to ask where your purchased the bulbs. My Honda dealer charged me way too much $ for coolant, so I am thinking his bulbs might be high too. I may check with Rock Auto, as I buy replacement parts for my chevy truck from them.

SGavin: Thank you for the instructional video. Just replaced the HVAC lights on my 2007 Element. I did not have to open up the housingnfor to the HVAC circuitmboard, the lights came out and went in from the back side. The hardest part was getting the electrical connectors disconnected and reconnected.
