I haven't looked into the mirrors because that doesn't bother me. I have looked into getting the painted backs for the mirrors, I've found them from Honda for about $16 a side.
I bought the wiper switch and the sway bar and brackets from a auto recycler (junk yard) for $75 including shipping.
I doubt the seats could be converted to power, I think the entire seat would need to be replaced.

This is who I got the wiper switch and swaybar from.

Thanks! That's very helpful
Do you have the part number for the painted mirror backs? Did you find them at a particular parts store, or from Honda directly?

Anyone have a good source (reputable and cheap) for these accessory wheels in the gray color for my 2007 Accord Sedan (SE with V-6)
#2140 of 2175 2007 Accord Sedan FOG LIGHTS...
Aug 14, 2007 (10:34 am)
I was wondering if anyone knows if the fog lights for the asian market Accords will fit the USDM Accords? I think they look much better on the car. They seem to be similar in pictures but just not sure and don't want to spend on something that I cannot return for a refund. Any takes and opinions is appreciated.
#2141 of 2175 Re: Hitch Bike Rack: Vision [lilengineerboy]
Aug 14, 2007 (1:17 pm)
I bought a Yakima Big Horn 4 bike 1 1/4" hitch rack for my 2007 Honda Accord SE (4 cylinder, 4 door, automatic).
U-Haul installed a 1 1/4" SportFrame hitch on the car, but the rack's tongue/stinger is too long (2" from end to center of hole) for the hitch receiver (1 3/4" from inside bolt attached to car chassis to center of hole).
I don't know if the "hidden hitch" described above is compatible with our car/bike rack combination. Possible problems are:
1. It too is not long enough for the holes to match up
2. It goes too far under the car (>8"?) causing the bike rack/bikes to hit the frame of the car (apparently a rather common problem with Hidden Hitch according to Yakima customer service)
I would appreciate any help. We had hoped to go on vacation with our bicycles beginning this weekend. BTW, we live in the NYC Metropolitan area (the Bronx).
It would be great if the holes drilled for the SportFrame hitch match a new hitch. Installation is probably not necessary -- U-Haul has agreed to install another hitch for free, but I'd have to buy/bring it in.

Hmm, I would call the hitch manufacturers (Hidden hitch, Draw-Tite, Curt) and see if you can get a measurement from them. I am curious who manufactures the u-haul hitch for them.
I have a Hidden Hitch Class 1 on my '93 Accord and it works fine, and I have a Class 2 on the '05 Subaru and it works fine with the Rhode Gear by Yakima 4 bike 1 1/4" rack. I have also installed a Class 1 Hidden Hitch on a Honda CR-V and had good results with the rack.
Is it possible to re-drill the pin-hole where the bolt goes through? I don't know what structural integrity is provided by that nut in the middle.
#2143 of 2175 Pneumatic Hood Lifter Install on 4 cylinder Models
Sep 10, 2007 (9:54 am)
I was thinking about trying to buy the pneumatic lifter units for the hood and installing them on my 2007 4 cylinder Accord 4 Door SE
I just wanted to see if anyone has done this before or if anyone knows if it will work without doing any modifications to the car. Was hoping I could just but the left and right hand lifter units plus the hardware (a total of $70 at my local Honda dealer) and put them in.
I'm thinking that the hood and hard attach points will be the same on my 4 cylinder as on the 6 cylinder models that these pneumatic lifters come on as standard.
Ok. . .thanks for any info or help on this !

I would try to get a 6 cyl next to your car (amybe your dealer will help?) and compare the 2. Just see if the holes, etc. are there on your car to match what the car with the struts has. If not, oh well.

I'm going to go to the dealer and look at an SE V6 4 door and raise the hood and take some pictures.
Then take the pics home to the car and compare that way.
Hope the sales rep doesn't get mad. I'll tell him up front what I'm up to.
