Did this video help you?

The Quintessa: Thank you so very much, Dayne! I have the factory manual but your video was way more helpful. Thank you for taking the time to make this video!

mrgscales: This worked great.
4 more things to mention.
Use the driver side dash buttons to stop the door midway.
I agree that using a large flat head screwdriver to pry the metal arm from the door handle connector works. It looks like a plastic clip, but it isn't.
Instead of loosening the two top bolts, remove them so that you have more room to maneuver the assembly out.
Disconnect the two wire harnesses to make things easier.

E. Barrera: Hi, many thanks!  I found your video extremely helpful:
1.  There is a connector from the exterior door handle to the main internal door unit.  It is the actual plastic spring arm that that connects the handle to the rest of the door unit - marked at 3:00 minutes on your video.  Looking at it seems next to impossible to remove - but I used pliers to hold the plastic component and there was a male connector which I managed to pull out with a sharp screw driver separating the two pieces.  That was probably the hardest piece but thanks to your video I learned it could be done w/o having to break the piece.
2.  Removing the clip on the door handle was easy - putting it back on was difficult.  However, I used a trick which may be helpful to others.  With the door handle off, I stuck a round marker inside the handle, then I put the wire clip onto the handle which caused it to correctly latch on each side of the handle.  Once it latched on I removed the marker.  Thereafter, I worked the door handle w/the clip onto the metal ribbed latch - pressed in until I heard a 'click' that the door handle and latch were secured.   I had tried some 20 minutes attempting to latch the clip on while the handle was back on but had no success.  You might be able to swing that - but it may take lots longer to make it happen - not to mention scratches on the cover.  Using the pen/clip approach took me 2 minutes.

fue vang: Too many step not film. :(

Paul Goh: Thanks, my sliding door lock issue was fixed, the suggestion of using a fork was great!

Also, for those who needed some tips on how to disengage the thing at 2:44, just jam a screw driver between the metal and plastic part and give it a twist, it will come loose.

Scott Farnell: Thanks for video

watcher: Thanks Dayne. Did my install today, took about 1 1/2 hours.

Minor comment for everyone else need to replace yourself, make sure the child lock position before close it up.
In case of child lock in wrong position (switch in unlock position but locked inside) after re-installed everything. Pull the child lock switch from bottom as far as possible (don't break it) and move the child lock to lock position. It could fix the child lock stuck in unlock position while child lock activated.

Gary Mastin: Thanks Dayne.  I viewed both of your videos before replacing the lock actuator and the clock light on MY Odyssey (210,000 miles and still rolling).  It was nice to know what to expect before starting the repair.  Thanks for taking the time to create and post these videos.
What manuals was bohnafyde1 talking about for $10?  What's your website?

Dayne Wright: Sorry for not showing more detail on that part. The problem was taping it while removing. The bearing just has to be forced out. That is all there is to it. The cables will turn slightly and then they will pull up and out. Hope that helps clarify some for you.

tubbytoast8: I wish that you would have shown the details on how to remove the two black cables as well as how to remove the rod from the bearing. That is the steps that I am having trouble with. I know that you said that they are a little difficult to remove but would have helped to see it done. How do I remove the cables? How do you remove the silver ends out of the small brackets? Do you just pop them out with a screwdriver? What about removing the rod? Great video, just a bit more details. Thanks!

Hames: Thank you, will let you know if it fixes the problem

Dayne Wright: I am not sure what you mean by the main switch. It could possibly be the lock actuator. I would replace it because it will fix the automatic lock for sure.

Hames: Mine is a 2004 Odyssey that is doing the same thing. I tried manually locking it from inside and it does the same grinding noise. I should also mention that for a while now, the door will not lock unless you hit the MAIN switch to make sure its locked at night. Do you think this will fix the problem? Thanks for the video

bohnafyde1: Been looking everywhere for help in replacing both headlight assemblies in my '07 Odyssey. You win the gold ring. I went to your site and downloaded the entire Honda manual for the diagrams..and for just 10 bucks. Can't beat that, Thanks again for the info and video helps.

Scott Duty: Hi. Thanks for the great video instructions. I have a 2003 LX. The driver's side sliding door would lock with the power lock, but won't unlock. I have to unlock it manually. I replaced the actuator, but the problem still remains--the lock will lock, but won't unlock. I think it might be electrical. Any suggestions?

Avason1: Stupid question...are you doing this from inside the van with the door closed??

YoBoost Com: Thanks a lot!

Dayne Wright: Possibly...I am not 100% sure on this one. There shouldn't be anything else causing that problem because the actuator is the only thing moving during that time. When you lock it manually does it have this problem?

Dayne Wright: It is an actuator issue and this will fix it. The latch is only a problem if it will not close completely. The actuator is what puts it in the lock position.
