    Great Video – followed along and just replaced my driver side (Left) bracket. Hardest part was actually getting the taillight off (getting the plastic pin to come out). The two plastic rollers were fine, but the entire shaft that holds them to the bracket was wobbly.

    While the door now slides nicely again, this did NOT fix my problem. Pressing the button to open or close the door does NOT work (nor the automatic function with internal or external handle pulls. And no door latch "lock down" sounds either. I swapped the fuses under the hood in the box behind the main fuse box just in case one was bad, but right door still works fine, so not the fuse. Hoping it is NOT the motor assembly, but it might be. Does that motor assembly also control the electronics for the door latch actuation? Off to google search for that issue now..

    Now we know two different ways to do this… not sure this way saved any time, looks like pulling the whole bracket is the way to go.

    I want to thank you slouch I did both sides in about an hour and a half because of your cheat I used a half inch extension because it was the first thing I could find with the reach you were the only one that simplified this job on my 07

    Mrs O reminds me so much of my daughter: attitude and looks. Eric, you are not only blessed with knowledge, but with LIFE! God bless!

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kamran Nahidi says:

    I fixed one five minutes with a 5 dollar part I clipped the cables. Works fine now for an old van. I charged the guy a million dollars.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lori Clinton says:

    Love the videos. Do you have any videos regarding a Rt sliding door off of its tracks, top and bottom?

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jimmy Lee Hook & The Long Island Sound ® says:

    While my door was jacked up and supported, it literally fell out onto the ground. The other two rollers came out of their tracks. It was one heck of a mess. I had to have four people help me get everything put back together. I have no idea why this happened. And, no matter how hard we pulled on the cable, we could not get it to stretch enough to get it back into the roller assembly. So now I have a manual door. Which is probably better anyhow.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars loren L says:

    This is a much easier way to do. No adjustments needed. Did this process on my second door. Thanks

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Duane Kamke says:

    I really love your insanity!!

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Williams says:

    Every since you didn't do anything, it's still broken! 🤣😂

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Night Dispatch MG says:

    Loved watching every moment of this video, beautiful couple. You 2 kept a smile on my face the whole time y'all interacted with each other.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kennynva KE4HVE says:

    So SMA, how is it up your way, with title and registration going….here on long Island it is taking at a minimum of 3 WEEKS to get your title back….meaning when you drop your insurance from your existing car,(which you have to do in NY) and insure you new used car…you have no car to drive…….just curious…

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jason Reyes says:

    Eric I love the video on Mrs. O's ole Hondu… Waiting on the second to be continued video on the Sliding Door Motor. My 08 Odyssey has the same issue. PLEAESE POST SOON so I can tackle my issue. Thanks for all you inspiration.

    Hey do you know the part number you used for this ?

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Javier Ferrer says:

    I did both of mine they were both metal-to-metal it was causing my door to have problems closing it keep opening and trickling at the open but I wasn't as lucky as you I had to take the tension off of it I struggle and struggle and couldn't do it without taking the tension off the cable I have a 2000 Honda Odyssey and right now I got 321000 MI it's been a year since I did it the last one and still going strong

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars paul ellis says:

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Greg Diamond says:

    Excellent video with humor, gotta love it ! 👍

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rob Dusher says:

    I have a 2014, the cable broke. The price to replace was ridiculous. Probably going to buy aftermarket cable on ebay. Thanks for the video…. 4 years later!

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Garry Reese says:

    Love the kid cages.😁

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cheap Smack Garage says:

    It's a "Jesus clip". You pull it off and yell, "Jesus, where did it land?!"

    "Ever since you didn't do anything it's still broken." Right up there with the hardware store mantra "I cut it twice and it's still too short."

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter Gondolier says:

    Hey Eric. If you need to remove/install a non-magnetic screw,`etc., just stick a small piece of LePage's Fun Tak Adhesive Putty on the end of the screwdriver tip, remove the screw and the putty will hold it on the tip for you. Get it at Staples runs about $3 for more then you will ever need.

    This seems to be one of Honda’s most pi$$ poor designs ever. The under designed four speed
    automatic transaxle in our 2000 Navi is worse.

    The roller appears to be a piece of steel without any bearings whatsoever. Would it be possible to replace the roller with a roller bearing? Getting the correct shaft inner diameter and correct outside diameter might be difficult .

    I believe the replacement will eventually fail. Just like the three replacement transmissions that went into my Wife’s Odyssey.
    This was our fourth and last Honda. I will never, ever, own anything made by Honda again.

    Love it when a plan goes together.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ann inGG says:

    I watched another video about this hinge and the guy that took the door off seemed easy I think it was three bolts. It drops down though so he put it on some kind of bench. Although I did not watch the end where he put the door back on by himself

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Rockhill says:

    Thanks. I found it easier to remove the cables by bending the tabs that hold it. Just a reminder do not bend the new ones. Haha

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Zip-tie racing says:

    Use a 1/4 long Extension but use it upside down with a ratchet plugs into it and put it on top of the pin and smash down you won’t slide off it

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars R S says:

    Thanks to you Mr O. Yesterday I replaced the EGR valve on a 2010 Dodge journey with a V6. I have a hand held engine diagnostics device that I used to troubleshoot. I can't control stuff with it but other than that it does a lot of other fancy stuff.
    You should be nicer to your wife she looks like a sweetie pie 🥧
    Cheers mate

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Connell Sr. says:

    Oh she's quick Eric, that was good " since you haven't done anything, it's still broke" oh my god, too funny!!!!

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Darrell Dorn says:

    A lot of times the major repair on these doors is minor. Before doing anything check the rubber bumper on the back of the top rail. If it is gone the doors will fail to shut right and not close properly. A $21.00 dealer part can save you hundreds in hinges, motors, etc.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Turd Hurdler says:

    You keep that up Eric you're not gonna get "payment" for a while!

    Kids are here(cages) dogs up front.! LMAO.!

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bayviewnick says:

    That is not a serration on the door pin, it is called a straight knurl…

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Crowe says:

    Very helpful! Thanks a million

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars pv12261963 says:

    Another satisfied customer.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gideion says:

    Lmfaoo, "she's worried about the kids falling out and stiff like that", all casually. I laughed so hard at that.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cody Linda says:

    Had to like it 26 seconds in. Let it be a learning lesson right?

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan Labelle says:

    It better be OEM

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert DeMaio says:

    They should recall this

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bill lambert says:

    The old saying the mechanics cars are in the worst condition rings true but hey Mrs. O seems like a patient lady at least you ain't lost no kids yet, Yet

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bub Dawg's What do you think? says:

    Watch an SMA for very very long time why is it that you just replace the part that wasn't broken on your wife's van that has a lot of other things that are broken? Just so everybody knows I threw my back out 4 days ago so I've been watching SMA for 4 days anybody feel bad for me yet keep up the good work

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave Dennis says:

    So you did this in 30 minutes. But, Honda and the Youtude Society of Mechanic Critics wants you to spend 2 hours doing it. I like your way better.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SI Rich says:

    "worrying about the children falling out and stuff like that" classic.
