    Help removing 2011+ Honda Odyssey headliner diagram or instructions


    Would anyone have a diagram or instructions on how to remove the headliner on a 2011+ Honda Odyssey? I read a few posts in this forum but I can't picture how exactly to remove the pillars and other sections of the headliner. I am trying to install two FineVu CR500-HD dash cams for the front and rear and I need to route the wires inside the headliner. Would it be possible to just fish a wire straight from the front to the rear of the headliner or would I be hitting something.

    I also installed DVR's with gps for Front & Rear, now days too many crazy drivers & scams (insurance scheme) out there.......
    My wife won the case back in Jan. '12 on my other car if didn't have DVR.

    heavy.o.dy , Not sure if you got it opened yet, but here few pictures of my GPS repeater antenna (similar steps).

    Remove the light cover and unscrew two screws.....

    Remove the overhead panel (pull down both ends 1st) careful since the wire harness still connected, then disconnect it.

    Pop out the middle center cover to remove one screw, and pop out the whole vent unit. No need to remove the light cover like me....there no hidden screws.

    Here I used a super large Tie-strap and tape wire with it and snake thru the side (snake over head wont work due the the beams).

    Here, snake thru the last part to the overhead console for the GPS repeater or 12v power (must use 12v to 5v Converter if use with the DVR's, hardwired)

    If not using overhead console route, here is the A-Pillar side to run the wire(s) and tape it down to the frame. There one screw under the SRS cover to remove it.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Everyone

    Im hoping someone has a diagram how to remove the factory 2014 oddy touring RES (overhead unit) from the roof (ceiling) of van. I'm installing a raspberry pi xbmc media center and would love to embed an IR receiver in one of these RES IR windows.

    My project summary for anyone who's interested:
    The raspberry pi is a small credit card sized computer developed mainly for embedded systems. There is a surprisingly responsive distro running xbmc (media center). The cool thing with the raspberry is that it has an HDMI output and so does my 2014 Odyssey.

    I've extended a 10' flat HDMI Cable from the right side hdmi port to the left side, rear fuse box. I plan to mount and power the rpi from there and however have to extend an IR sensor somewhere where my kids can use the remote. I want to preserve the factory look and intend to place the IR receiver in the factory RES as soon as I can figure out a way to diplomatically remove it
