Download Install the Shift Lock Release Slot Cover ’99-03 Odyssey – When you reinstall the shift lock release slot cover on a ’99–03 Odyssey or ’03 Pilot, be really careful. The cover is made to snap into the opening in the upper steering column cover in just one direction. If you try to install the cover in the other direction, you’ll break off its retaining clips. And as an extra precaution, make sure you snap in the side with the two straight retaining clips first, then the side with the two angled clips. ODYSSEY: The opening on the shift lock release slot cover points toward the back of the vehicle. PILOT: The straight clips on the other side are closer together. The angled clips on the opening side are wider apart. The opening on the shift lock release slot cover points toward the front of the vehicle.
