Probably NOT

I assume these DIYs will also work on 2011 MDX as well?
I don't think so, this thread is specifically for 2001-2006 MDX.
Some general DIY may work in other models but you are better off using the proper forum to get exact specs/details on DIY for your 2011 MDX.

2004 mdx

Our lovely MDX is currently at 170,000 and serving as a full time student driver in Cal Poly Pomona. Some issue - there and there - but no plan for retirement soon. LOVED!
Happy and save driving to all members of this wonderful forum! Many thanks for your help during last 14 year with MDXers.org!

The instructions on the 2nd row seat levers, leave out the most critical step, IMHO. That's the re-installation of the spring. Otherwise, great write up!

Thanks for this thread. I haven't used info in it yet. But it will be handy soon for replacing a few of my door lock motors.

Seems like every link I click on doesn't work, "OOPS we ran into some problems it says
About 80% of the links have worked for me in the past. I just tried 3 random ones and they worked.

On the ones that don't, when I click nothing happens at all, it is almost like it is not a link. I've wondered if the actual threads have somehow expired and the link removed, or if one of the times Midnight took down all the links for a while, if he missed restoring those.

Interesting, when I click on the "PDF Service Manual Scans" link in the 3rd post, in a web browser it goes to post #41 in this thread which isn't correct. But if I click on the same link in Tapatalk, it goes to post #91 in this thread which is the correct post with the service manual scans. I never realized the behavior could be different.
