Come along in this video as I remove the right rear quarter trim and replace a power sliding door motor on this '05 Honda Odyssey.

    Great Video, like the extra steps to do a good job! I have a 2009 may need to do the same at some point?

    Don't know how I missed this one… a true epic odyssey! Now I own a used Odyssey… good to know this is doable for DIY. Thanks Eric.

    Thanks for this video. I have one of those in the shop now for a customer. I am going to turn down this job after seeing all the time and headache involved. I hate interior work anyways. Always plastic pieces breaking or cracking.

    Luckily, I just needed to change the roller only. But now after opening and closing the door 2x, the Power door lights get triggered and it stops working. I pull out the fuse and reset it but it keeps happening again. 😣

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars M K says:

    This is quite the undertaking for a diyer 😰

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ronald Johnson says:

    Sooo much plastic! A few more years and it will be so brittle it will crack. And, it's guesswork where the clips are. Having to disassemble 1/4 of the car is insanity.

    Hi Sir, My honda 2018 Odyssey sliding door doesn't work (can't even manually open / electric doesn't work as well on the left side only). I went to Honda dealer shop and they charge me 2 hours for diagnosis fee, and then they call me they will need more hours again to diagnose (hourly rate = 125$CAD). I'm just wondering is this normal to take this ?

    Awesome job partner.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Charles Mitchell says:

    Genius! Very impressive, your patience is inspirational….your use of zip ties instead of tape is such a time and aggravation saver!

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Alloway says:

    I usually do learn something when I watch your videos.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brett Elmer Elmer says:

    Thank you for such a well done production. I need to replace the door control module. I saw it on the video, will do it in the morning. Just needed to find out where the plastic pins are and how to get to them. Tried a short cut today, but wasn't able to get the panel with the vertical flip cover door off. Doesn't look like I'd have had enough room to make that work.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars fiddlerpin says:

    Man if my motor ever goes you better believe that door will become a manual shut one!

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars echoechokilo 1 says:

    You really get some PITA jobs, and I'LL never buy a honda van!

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tonja Carlson says:

    I think I could do it after watching this video!!! You made it look so easy with your step by step process!! Thanks

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don Moriarity says:

    Enjoyed the video. I have a 2013 and I think the cable tensioner is different, but I can research that if and when the time comes (hope it never does) haha.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Karl VS says:

    Hey, how did you (or "The Algorithm"?) know that I literally just bought a 2010 Ody with this exact same situation?? Thanks to your usual super-duper, complete, and family-friendly manner of presentation, I no longer fear the prospect of taking on this otherwise daunting repair – and as you say "If he can do it, I can do it"!!

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jack Anderson says:

    Awesome you make it look so easy what a talented mechanic, wish I lived closer I'd just bring my vehicals to your shop, your joking comments make watching your videos fun on top of educational. Thanks and keep up the good work

    Great video, what part of New York you located I'm in central New York.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Karen Phillips says:

    Eric, how do you keep track of all the screws and hardware to know what goes where for re-assembly? Is this all by memory, or do you take notes?

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Johnny Sechrist says:

    While working inside a truck or van I kept my tools in the top of an old plastic cake carrier.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vaso De varro says:

    is a good idea,to mention what parts are round the part that you are replacing,beacous,I was looking for the location of the sliding door control unit and you mentioned. Thanks you man,your video help me.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SAL_DIN says:

    Can you please tell about the cable replacement for right side. I snapped on mine 08.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars poteaugs says:

    Freaking amazing this vid. I have a newer generation (2015) and this procedure is almost identical for the newer generation. Vid was very helpful. Thank you.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars john snedeker jr says:

    Good job very informative thank you

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jon Miner says:

    Hi, Eric. That is an interesting video. I really appreciate the patience you show and the lack of frustration I would have. Thanks for sharing! Stay Healthy!

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tommy Gregorcyk says:

    Your ability to keep cool and not rip it is amazing!!

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Ridley says:

    Mainly I learned what I already knew: I don't want power sliding doors, it's just something else to go wrong. I can close the damned door myself.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars George thien says:

    Great

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Arthur Lauri says:

    This was a great video. I had a 2003 honda odyssey with 202000 miles with the same problem. I also cut the cables. I had 4 kids with no way other than having them climb over the front seats or go through the back tailgate. I wish that someone would have made a video that was as good as this one. I am now a subscriber.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MrJCM Junior says:

    👏👏👏👏Driver's side about the same but you have the spare tire on that side instead of the rear A/C

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alan Robison says:

    OUTSTANDING!

    He cut the cables … !?!?
    MwaHaHaHa'aaaa …

    Hi Eric, I ran into 2 issues, just wonder if you have any answers for me. Great video by the way; made the job really easy for me! The first issue I had was the 2 cables were about 3 inches short to fit into the old hinge roller. I did have the 2 white clips on the motor in the up position. Is there a way to extend them a little more? The 2nd issue I had was; I bought a new hinge roller for the door, I removed the bracket from the door with the old roller, removed the clip, but no matter how I tried to removed the pin from the part, I couldn't; I suspect that the sleeve on the pin is logged and rusted onto the pin, any suggestions? I may have to buy a new bracket to attach to the door. Thanks and I await your responses
