Husky Liners Classic Custom Rear Floor Liners Review - 2007 Honda Pilot

Today on this 2007 Honda Pilot we're going to install part #HL64301, classic custom auto floor liner for the second row. All right to start off we need to remove any original liners or mats that are on the floor. With those out of the way, we can go ahead and lay our new liner in place. We can see that this floor liner is a one-piece unit that goes all the way across the vehicle. It has a raised edge that goes all the way around and the raised ridge is also by our threshold too, and it also reaches up between the rails of the front seats. This also keeps dirt and debris and water or mud on the liner and not run off into your carpet. Now if we lift up one of the corners, you can see there are points underneath it called nibs. This is what grips the carpet and keeps it in place.

Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2004 Honda Pilot

Today we are going to install part number 43105 from Hoppy, and we are going to install this on a 2004 Honda Pilot. A wiring connector is hidden behind this plastic piece right here in the threshold, so what we have got to do is get behind this, take it up, and then get between here and the bucket that is behind here, and that is where the connector lies. Pulling back the bucket here, you can see where our wiring connector is hidden. We will loosen that up and install our harness under that port.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2004 Honda Pilot

Today we are going to install part number V82110 from Valley, and we are going to install this Class III receiver hitch on a 2004 Honda Pilot. All right, let us go ahead and show you where the hitch attaches to the vehicle and give you a better idea of what is going on. The first attachment point is going to be on the bottom of the frame rail here. And this tow hook is going to have to be removed this will stay off once the hitch is in place. It is going to be the same thing on the other side. All right, and these two points right here are where the hitch will install. Now, on some older vehicles like this one here, it is a good idea to clean out these threads on these bolt holes. And the last point of attachment is going to be on the bumper itself. And it is located between the center of the bumper and the spare tire. There will be two threaded holes in the bumper going this way.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2005 Honda Pilot

Today we are installing part number 13328, a hitch made by Curt, and it will be going on a 2005 Honda Pilot. Okay, we are underneath the vehicle now. And the first thing you want to do is remove your spare tire, and get it out of the way. Locating the attachment points, right here on the back side of the bumper there are two weld nuts that attach to the flange on the hitch itself. And then we go over here to the drivers side of the frame rail, there is just a tow hook that needs to be removed. There are three bolts holding it on. And those three weld nuts in the frame will be the attachment points for the hitch, as well. And then on the passengers side frame rail, there is not actually a tie-down, there are just the existing weld nuts. On older vehicles, over time corrosion will build up into these weld nuts, so you want to go ahead and clean those out really well before you get started. You can use any kind of spray lubricant, like WD-40, and a wire brush to get the threads cleaned out.



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2007 Honda Pilot

Today we are going to show you part number 118336 from Tow Ready and we are going to install it on a 2007 Honda Pilot. To begin our install we have to gain access to the inside of the vehicle and take off the rear threshold. That port we need to get to is underneath the threshold. A little bit towards the center but closer to the driver side. Next this threshold panel needs to come off also. They actually come off pretty easy. On this tray here we push back a little bit and we can see the port right here. Once we have gone ahead and plugged it in we will stick our little converter box on right here. There is just enough room. We can stick it against the wall and keep it out of harms way. We can tuck these wires back in there. You can either run the wires back out through this hole or sometimes there is a crack in this little hole you can run it through also.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2007 Honda Pilot

Today we are going to install part number 87454 and we will install this on a 2007 Honda Pilot. This also applies to part number 75599 from Draw Tite. To begin our install we have to take care of a couple things. First off this tow hook has to be taken off and it stays off. The other thing is we want to clean out any of the bolt holes that are exposed to the elements. The hitch attaches on this side here and also attaches on the far side of the muffler on the passenger side. On these exposed bolt holes here the ones that we will need to use we will have to clean out and we will take care of that next. We will begin by spraying down the holes with some WD40 or any kind of cleaner. This ensures that all of the dirt gets out of there before you try and install the hitch.
