Easy or hard to replace clock backlighting?

Discussion in 'General Motoring' started by Wondering.About, Mar 1, 2005.

  1. My 2000 Odyssey LX recently had the backlighting in the dashboard LCD
    clock go. All other lights - instruments, stereo, all that, work.

    How easy is it to fix this? Is there a diagram on the web showing how
    to gain access to what I assume is a 38-cent lightbulb that needs to
    be replaced?

    if like the Accord (i have a '99), it is TOO EASY! I think the clock light
    from honda is ~$4 and it looks like a small screwhead (about the size of a
    womans pinkie nail). In my case, take a flat head screw driver and insert
    under the clock and lightly pry up. It will pop out. disconnect the power
    cables to the clock and the hazard lights. on the backside, you will see
    the end of the old light. do your best to get it out of there, it can be
    tricky and frustrating. The new one goes in easily. reconnect your power
    cables and slide back into the dash.

    can you tell, I just did this for both my Accords?!?! Of course they burned
    out two weeks apart, so two trips to the Honda dealer.

    It's NOT like the Accords. The entire dash panel must be removed because the
    clock is screwed in from behind.
