  • Trunk Sub Harness replace and reinstall and Sticky suggestion.

    I am coming up on 50,000 kilometers on my 3 year old GW, and sure enough I ran into one of Honda design/installation problems, broken wires with the trunk sub harness, right at the bend in the trunk. If Honda pulls off a stunt like this in their new Honda Jet, the Honda Jet will go the path of the De Havilland Comet!

    Both speakers are dead and while I did find one break, for the left speaker, rather then screw around with it, I ordered a new one from partszilla, which should arrive this week.

    Though the removal and installation would make for an interesting helpful Video, (Hint, Hint, ), I am assuming if I pull off the speaker pods and back seat, I can simply replace each plug as I pull the old sub harness out.

    What I am really interested in is picture of how people have attached the sub harness near the hinges of the trunk in a manner which greatly reduced the bending and flex of the wires. I currently have the old harness hanging rather free behind the passenger back rest and that seems ok, however, I am sure someone has a much better idea.

    Also, would it not be a good idea to have a sticky of suggested must do mods that everyone should consider when the pick up a new or new to them GW.
    Relocating the trunk sub harness away from the trunk hinges would be my first suggestion, which is simple and easy for anyone to do.
    I never heard of this problem until I ran into it, then I was a little surprised to find how common of a problem it really is.

    Rick, I have never had to do a replacement on the sub-harness, but I know it is a common issue. I like the idea of the Sticky, that is something I will add to the list! I am sure someone on here will have some more suggestions for you. BTW, do you have the link to what you ordered from Partzilla?
