well if thats the case it didn't work rite, it didn't start flashing until 321,850 :joke:I heard that Honda put that in as a built in mileage indicator. Anytime you get over 300K miles it starts to flash, telling you it's time to buy a new bike.
Use a sharp screwdriver , knife something, pry under the screw while turning it out.well i took the inside latch cover off, everything looked ok, when i tripped the latches with a screwdriver the trunk open light shut off like its supposed to
so i tried to adjust those hoops on the trunk lid and found out the right hoop screws just spin, couldn't get them out, so i removed the other 17 screws that hold the inside top lid in place, the 2 things that those 2 hoop screws are supposed to screw into are broken away from the lid, guess i need to figure out a way to glue them back in place so i can tighten the screws, if that works i suspect everything will be fine again, if not i might be looking for a different trunk lid $$$ !!!
Yep , might be the reason. :lol:
320K on a bike, that is quite the accomplishment. :thumbup::thumbup:
thanks for posting :thumbup:, kinda nice to know i'm not the only one to run into this problem , so far my repair job seems to be working fine, that 3m epoxy is expensive but it works great, i ordered the 2 new hoops today from the local dealer to replace the severely worn hoops $15,, they are supposed to arrive Tuesday, hopefully that will cure the rather hard to release latch problem but for some reason i'm not so sure it will, if it gets worse i might have to replace the entire latching mechanism $$$ !The screw bosses for the loops broke out on my 03. I went through the repair efforts to no avail. The fix for me was to remove the liner, remove the damaged screw bosses completely and using machine screws, nuts and washers, bolt the loops to the liner and reinstall the liner. Worked fine until I traded it three years later.
Just an idea that worked well for me.
Good luck with your repair.
One of my screw post broke. I tried epoxy, but to no avail, so I wound up just putting a bolt and nut in it and secured it to the inner housing. Still working good.well its fixed but i don't know how long it will last
i used 3m epoxy on one of the broken screw holders and ABS glue on the other with an additional coat of epoxy on the outside
maybe i should look into getting some new hoops because they have grooves wore about half way through where the latches hook, maybe that has something to do with why the latch handle started pulling a little harder than its supposed to ?
