  • Replacement dash source...

    Is there a "standard" source for replace dash / bezels?

    I am about to get a new Honda, without the Nav unit, but want to get the nav dash (or just the nav bezel?) and start from there.

    Google and Searching this forum have produced no solid results.

    By "standard" source, I mean are there places that sell replacement dashes wholesale, or should I be looking and junkyard sites?

    And (again) does someone who has done this previously think I need the whole dash, or just the relevant bezel?

    Thanks in advance.

    you definatley don't need a whole dash unless your going really radical, even then, you'd work with your existing dash most times, but for a normal install about all you'll need is a spare bezel...

    unless you get lucky & can locate one on ebay, your only real option will be to buy it from the dealer. I almost always have to get the bezel from the dealer, most times there not nearly as expensive as you might fear, but then again, depending on the car the bezel can be up there too. on a honda it shouldn't be too expensive. online dealers might save you a little bit.

      Thanks for the prompt reply. No, I am not planning anything radical, just mounting a touchscreen in the dash & CPU in the trunk.

      Thanks again.

        Well the newer Hondas the bezels are so much bezels.

        eBay is your friend. Depending on how new, there are a few sites, but the new 07-08 maybe even 06 you wont be able to find anywhere but the dealer or junkyards.

        And as for Honda's not being expensive... Yeah right! I went to the dealer to get my spare bezel (actually a bezel for the 2001-2005 model civic/accord) and they told me $190 and tax. The silver Si edition was over $200 and the only difference is the plastic is silver coloured. Bought mine on ebay after about 1 month of searching for $30 shipped.

          All you really want is a bezel and would most likely search Ebay and scrap yards for the bezels on their own and a breakers car.

          Also, goto a honda forums and post up their, someone somewhere must have a bezel you want!
