Honda Odyssey Rear Window Motor Repair
Thanks!!! My 2001 Odyssey's a/c recently quit and this 'ible helped me finally get my rear vents working. hpage66's comment allowed me to get the duct out of the way just enough to get to the mounting bolts (see pic of sleeve on duct). The 2nd tab fell apart since I didn't keep it pressed together till it cooled. To fix, I placed some of the black substance I'd cut off between the 2 parts and reheated, squeezed, and cooled. In the end, the resistance measured 1.2 ohms. Do one side at a time so you can note and compare the orientation of the large gear in regards to how it is connected to the window latch as I had to completely disassemble to pull out the motor with worm gear.
Good post, good pictures. fixed in short order. thanks you.
Thanks to the guy that posted this! I fixed my 03 Odyssey Honda today.
ilu1947I'm happy to say I fix my rear window vent on my 2003 Odyssey with zero cost to me. I'm not a mechanic, 69 year old retired but I love to fix my own cars. I followedthe step by step instructions on this website, several times I went back and forth between the internet and my driveway where I'm doing the repair. I squeezed with avise grip the tab where the black stuff is sandwhich between the two metals. Then, I heated it with a blow torch probably 1 second or watch the black stuff oozesout about half of it , then let it cool then slice it off with a sharp knife. I used the ohm\meter the; resistance its 3 ohms.I 'd like to share this with everyone with the same problem. Don't rush buying themotor unit (almost $100) try this first. All you need is a little patient and a littlebit of analyzing things. Thank you very much to whoever posted this step by stepinstructions (steps 1-8).
Saw this after repairing/modifying my drink tray and decided to give it a try. It worked perfectly. Saved over $100 in "new" motors for my windows. Now onto another project.
mark the motor and the little case so they line up the right way when you put them back together. You don't have to take off the arm but you have to loosen it and slide it down a little so that you have the slack to take the motor with the worm screw out. when you are heating the connection don't heat it too much and hold the two metal parts together while you heat it. if you don't one part might fall off but don't worry you can put them back together, hold them in place and heat it up again. I fixed both of my motors but gave up putting the interior panels back and took my car to my local auto body shop to put back together. (My wife has given them lots of business.) I saved at least $150.
Where can I find a part number for the bolt that goes through the wing window to attach it to the moving mounting plate. Mine is LOST. (2000 Odyssey)
Entering 2016 with two working side windows-thanks for the instructions!!
