    Hi Accord guys,

    I found that this part is broken when I lifted the car up. Anyone who has any idea what is this part (a red ovary in the attached picture)?
    I think it is a part of some sensor and relates to VSA system because I have a VSA illuminated.

    unknown part.

    This is just a wild guess judging by location - is it a rear brake bias adjuster? Or does the 7 Gen not have one?
    I can't find one on the parts diagrams...

    I have something looks like this only on the left side in both front and rear and I guess it is something relate to VSA.
    I just need only that part and look not that so difficult to replace it.

    Its used by the VSA system to determine suspension deflection.

    Hi all, you're looking at part number 33146-SEA-G01.
    Can be found on B13-12 as indicated on your screenshot.
    Your car must be an Executive? This part can only be found on HID versions. It's the sensor for the leveling of the lights.
    Best regards

    No my car is I-CTDI sport. I think my circle was too big, so I mean the one that looks like a rod

    Have you got HID (Xenon) lights?
    Are you 100% sure about the part you circled? Is really that part broken?

    Hi Roma,

    Sorry for the delay it been a challenge in finding this info but here goes. This part can be located on block B-13-12
    Part number 33146-SEA-G01
    Description SENSOR ASSY., HEADLIGHT ADJUSTER RR. retail cost 230,08 GBP :Smile:

    Headlight sensor.

    Couple of questions for you Does you LHD Accord Saloon have HID lamps as standard? and when you say its broken where is it broken from? I would like you to post an Image on the thread . I see your last attempt of image insertion has failed use this thread to make sure your images get posted. http://hondakarma.com/threads/1898/

    If you need the guide in how to replace this sensor please ask.

    Having read the WSM it say that rod should not be disassembled so if your sensor is fine you can reuse it. Part number 4 you get the sensor the brackets and rods all together.

    I was going to say that but then thought the Yaw rate sensor does that , I just had a sneaky feeling it was the headlight sensors but didn't say a lot until I checked my own db.
