Installed a new checker on the front passenger-side door of my 06 sedan with 167k miles. I used the remove-the-speaker method (instead of removing the insulation) and it was a cinch. I love this forum.

Thanks to vasekvi and Google, another successful door checker replacement by me tonight.

I elected to do it through the speaker and managed to break the bottom clips that hold it in place. Here's a tip, to remove the speaker pry on the top, there is a metal clip that will pop out. Then you can stick your fingers in and release the bottom 2 plastic clips. I broke both of them by prying up at the bottom first. Had to shoot in a couple of sheet metal screws to hold the speaker in. Could have been challenging without a well stocked workbench.

Where to find part?

Hey everyone, first off thanks for all the great information in this thread!

I have an '09 accord, and I am having trouble finding where to buy a replacement door checker. A lot of places seem to have listings for '03-'07 accords, but no '09. Do you think that those would work just as well?

Well, I now have a driver's door that stays open! Now that I know what 'normal' is like, I have to replace the passenger's door thing too. (grumble)

For those reading this in the future, take the speaker out! Much easier to do it this way. When you're unsnapping the speaker, don't pull the top of the speaker more than 1/2" or so from the body, or you'll crack the bottom two u-shaped holders. Just enough to un-snap it, then lift up.
