Honda Osyssey sliding door bearings

Recommended Posts

instead of a novel, I think I'll do this one in bullet points

 

-Honda Odyssey minivans use nylon roller bushings as a guide for their sliding doors

-All other minivan manufactures I could find at the junkyard use metal bearings in this location

-Autozone has $45 replacement brackets that are also failure prone (lasted 3 weeks) and, as it turns out, have absolutely no warranty whatsoever

-dealerships will happily replace the broken part with a new one for like $500

-after some research I found a steel bearing that is very close to the nylon roller's size

-installed them today and the door works better than it did with the brand new autozone part

 

all is well :D

Very nice!  We are looking at replacing our Commander with a minivan and are looking at a Honda Odyssey.  How do you like yours overall?  Aside from the cheap plastic parts.

Coworker's Odyssey did that same thing.  The door fell off scratching up and denting the body.
