Found one and ordered it. Thanks Wilmaster..........馃憤
Unless they upgraded and improved the 'door-checker" a lot, they are pretty poor at keeping the door open, at least on the 2nd Gen Ody.
They basically suck at what they are supposed to do compared to most brands of autos and trucks.

I'm pretty happy with mine on both of my vehicles. They do their job.
Are yours still the original or did you replace them?
Both of the ones (Dr and Pass) on my '03 barely work, almost no resistance.
I think a fart would close them. :eek: o_O:ROFLMAO:
Thanks,

Here in the hill country, only half the parking lots face downhill. The other half, I hold the door for my wife.
They really suck on my '03 as they act more like oiled 'hinges'!! :) :) :)
I'll bet you wife appreciates your chivalry !!
And, it keeps you in better physical shape.

Yes it is working well..in fact a bit stiff....but compared to what it was, i'd rather have stiff than sloppy.

Make sure you have some of the plastic doors buttons, clips or snaps because I broke 5 of mine off getting the
door panel off. It doesn't look like any one was inside the door as the rain shield and all was still adhered to the
door frame well.

This job would have been so so sooooooooo easy had they had threaded NUTS INSIDE the door frame and the
door jamb. 3 bolts out and 3 bolts in, bada bing badaboom. Amazing how much disaasembly needs to be done to fix a minor issue.

Next is the passenger door lock actuator........like DICK CLARK USED TO SAY ON AMERICAN BANDSTAND:

THE HITS JUST KEEP ON A'COMIN馃檨
Thanks a bunch for the reply.
I might have to do that on my '03.

It was only $15 for the part. Why would I pay the OEM markup for a Honda part on a 22 year old minivan.
If it wears out on 3 days, I've only lost $15 and my time.
Are your shins worth $15? To me, some people like to complain rather than fix the problem. It's easier.
Keep us informed. If they work out, I will probably buy some.
Thanks,
