We would love pictures and more info.It's possible. Replaced both front and read mounts last summer on our 2005 Touring and couldn't be happier. I also have a homemade muzzler installed so I barely ever have the VCM activate.I used brand new OEM mounts. A bracket is also needed for the rear mount. Before doing this I replaced the rear mount with an aftermarket one - lasted a couple of months. Failure point was the little metal tab on top of the mount that attaches to the rear of the engine - it completely broke off.I left the wires that go to the active mounts unplugged - no CEL or any error codes.
Forgot to add this:Flange Bolt - 90162-SHJ-A00So the whole list should look like this:Rear: 05-10 Honda Odyssey Rear Motor Mount LX EX Cloth Interior - PN 50810-SHJ-A00Bracket, Rear Engine Mounting - PN 50610-SHJ-A00Front: Honda Genuine OEM Front Mount - PN 50830-SHJ-305Flange Bolt - 90162-SHJ-A00
Thread isn't that old, and better to dig up old than create new with that said I haven't done it yet, but probably when the weather improves (warms) some here in the Northeast.Sorry to break posting etiquette by digging up an old thread, but it appears I am due for motor mounts and at the minimum, the drivers side axle.
Hoping someone that did this conversion will post back any results before I order the parts to convert to non VCM, since I am muzzled.
I can't open the picture attachment but the one you need for the non active mount has the style where the mount in sandwiched between the bracket. The active mount bracket rests on the mount, the bolt just holds pressure against it whereas the other style the bolt actually holds the mount in the bracket.So I ordered the parts, and I think I may have gotten the wrong bracket for the rear motor mount. This looks like the bracket for the active mount, I'm not sure because I haven't gotten under there yet but that's what my gut is telling me. Can anyone confirm?

Can't open the attachment. I will try and take a pic of the one I installed on the car - not sure I will be able to get to it though.So I ordered the parts, and I think I may have gotten the wrong bracket for the rear motor mount.
