Just thought I'd post a blow by blow guide to installing the Xcarlink in a 2002 accord Type-V without sat-nav or multi changer. The lack of CD changer or sat-nav made this the easiest possible installation, and as everything went smoothly it only took about 30 mins. The procedure will be much the same for any 6th Generation accord. Step 1. Put the car into Neutral (if its an auto and you leave it in park it makes removing the ash tray and trim difficult). Remove the plastic (or wood effect in my case) trim from around the gear lever area. start from the furthest back (towards the back of the car) and gently pry it out, its just held in place with clips. Be careful on the top ones as the trim is quite small there, but thoughtfully so are the clips. removing this trim will expose four black cross head screws as seen below. Step 2. Remove the screws and pivot the lower ash tray and surround to the left (this means you do not have to disconnect the cigarette lighter and ash tray lights. you will now see four yellow (zinc and yellow passivate) cross head machine screws which hold the cubby hole in. remove this and remove the cubby hole Step 3. With the cubby hole removed you can see there is quite a lot of room in there. You can reach up and feel the metal chassis of the stereo. The multi changer port is on the right (as you look at the stereo) directly below the existing wiring. Feel around where the wiring is on the right hand side and you will be able to feel the tab that engages into the slot on the Xcarlink connector. It might take some fiddling around to get it in, but be gentle as the Xcarlink connector is an excellent fit and will click in positively, but without undue force. it only took me a couple of attempts to locate it and plug it in - it goes home with a nice reassuring click. At this stage its worth plugging the Ipod lead into the Xcarlink and checking everything works, as its a lot easier to do this now that after everything is installed. Having satisfied yourself that everything works as it should we now need to drill in the back of the cubby hole for the lead to pass through. I located mine in the top left corner as you look into the cubby hole. Feed the Ipod lead through the hole, and plug it into the Xcarlink. I located my Xcarlink on top of the cubby hole, fixing it in place with a large number plate fixing sticky pad, folded over in half - it was an ideal size. If you have the radio or clock located there you may not have room, however there is plenty of space in the centre console to locate the Xcarlink anywhere you want. Step 4. In the greatest Haynes manual tradition, Installation is now the reverse of the dismantling procedure. There is plenty of room for the Xcarlink and its cables, so just tuck it all back in, making sure the cables don't snag on anything. There is plenty of room in there. Congratulations! You're done, an Ipod nano sits beautifully in the cubby hole, and its probably big enough for an iphone as well. I chose the cubby hole because it leaves everything hidden, but you could just as easily use the cup holders or the open cubby hole above. All done, and very simple. The only tricky part is plugging the lead into the back of the stereo - have a root around with your fingers first to check exactly where its going, and don't use excessive force. If you can't get it to go in, try rotating the plug through 180 degrees - there is a 'tongue and slot' type index on the plug and socket so it will only go in one way, it also needs to go in good and straight - you'll know when you've got it right. I've found the Xcarlink will allow you to select as many ipod playlists as you have, just by continually pressing the disc + or - buttons, its not restricted to six playlists. When playing in playlist mode the ipod display shows a neat little Honda logo as well, a nice touch. To return to manual control of the ipod, just select disc one. you can skip tracks by using the standard CD skip controls, and it charges your Ipod to boot! Its an excellent product, and highly recommended. Head unit in playlist mode. Note the head unit thinks its playing CD21! it will just keep clicking through as many play lists as you have Honda logo on ipod when in playlist mode. (its my camera that makes the logo look grainy, its actually spot on) Job done - no sign of any modification at all.
