    Is it obvious that I'm back properly? lol

    Right, the only bit inside which is bothering me is the gear gaiter as it has a little wear on it. There's a few very light scratches on the glove box but that doesn't bother me.

    Does anyone know how to remove and refit a gaiter? Done the 7th Generation Accord before but not sure what the CR-V is like (and I've forgotten anyway! lol)


    Cheers

    Crowbar should do the trick :Laughing:

    More seriously, I'd try around the edges with trim removal tools.

    From what I gather you have to remove the A/C control panel by pulling along the side of the A/C control button slots with a trim removal tool. Once that bit is out you can then pull the gear gaiter panel up.

    @Ichiban can you look up some more precise instructions ?

    That would be appreciated. I've got a replacement on order to arrive tomorrow. Went for one which is Italian leather! lol But from Honda it looks like you have to get the whole assembly which is over a hundred notes but I only need the leather part.

    Cheers. It was a serious brown trouser job as I had no guide to follow so it was trial and error with the risk of me breaking the trim! Will get the DIY done once I've finished the oil change one (bit basic but I figured why not! lol)

    Nice job!

    Did mine the other week too. Getting the AC panel out was my biggest problem. Slightly marked the fascia as the spring clips where VERY tight! Looks fine now though.

    Did give me the opportunity to install my Belkin Bluetooth jobby in a tidy manner at the same time too, so overall - a worth while headache!

    That would be fab ... Many thanks for offering to do this.

    My gaiter is still in good nick thankfully!

    Where did you purchase the Italian product?
