    OK, Thanks to both Jonathan and Kaz, that will explain why it isn't really lined up with either of the rods in the diagram, it fits both.

    I shall be on to Honda in the morning to attempt to purchase the required part.

    Regards,

    Andy

    On purposely used that photo in my previous post as I didn't want showing how a certain parts installed for the security system at the driver side door.
    The fastener in the lower slot is not complete and missing the silver washer.

    Also, on the later model or different country spec, the area around the lower slot will look completely different so please only refer the photo for the upper slot where the rear sash rod is connected.









    Took extra photo so hope these will help.

    You may struggle placing the 04721- in the upper slot.
    It's quite obvious but just sandwich the brass coloured metal slot on the door lock assy where the green arrows indicate.

    Honda's computer has been taken over by a Ransomware and no show room and parts department are able to use their computer to look up anything..happening in UK, Germany and Japan? all over the world?

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-52982427

    So you may find it difficult to look up or get parts.

    A late question for Midnight Blue. I presume that by now you have installed 04721 and buttoned everything back up. Hopefully successfully. If so, I am about to go through this procedure when 04721 arrives from Amayama in Japan (Acura Canada has none in stock) and I was curious as to whether you managed to get the yellow bush and metal washer on the retainer with the latch still mounted in the door? The part has not arrived yet; but, I have been looking inside the door and I am thinking that this is not going to happen in situ unless I can get the doctor next door to sneak the critical parts of a laparoscopic surgical ensemble out of the hospital to do the work. I am thinking that it might be possible to remove the latch bolts so that I can reposition the latch so that I can apply the yellow bush and metal washer through the large slot where the strike enters the door latch. Other wise I have to remove the outside window trim so I can remove the rear sash and the rear window guide which provides the necessary room to extract the latch mechanism.

    Please tell me that there is a less painful way to do this!

    Hi,

    I can't quite remember how I got it all to fit in the end but it did involve bad language and skinned knuckles. The rod that comes from the handle to 04721 was not correctly aligned. I did have to loosen the door latch if not take the bolts out completely. I certainly didn't have to remove the rear sash. With the latch not rigidly fastened in place I could get 04721 in place and get the whole assembly aligned with the door rod correctly so it would pop through into place.

    You must have greater dexterity or longer fingers than I do. I removed the three latch retaining socket head bolts and tried pivoting the latch to get access to the back of that slotted piece that 04721 fits into and pretty much concluded ' this isn't happening' so it was off with the rear sash and out with the rear window track. Removal of the window trim, rear sash and track probably took only 15 minutes so wasn't as bad as I thought. The up-side is it gave me the opportunity to do a good cleaning of the rear track and window guides and apply some spray grease to the accessible parts on the latch.

    I snapped 04721 on the driver's side because I was removing the lock rod to replace the rear sash because of torn boots. For good measure I got to do it all over again on the passenger side because I was doing the same replacement. This time I acquired two of the recommended long needle nose pliers with bent tips to more gently pry the lock rod out of the retainer. Didn't quite work out. The retainer did not break; but, the metal washer popped off as the lock rod came out of the retainer so it was a repeat of the complete performance again. Everything is back together with new retainers and fresh grease in the the rear window tracks.

    I think Kaz's comment about having spares of 04721 on hand if you need to work on the latch or rear sash is an absolute must. I think the chances of them surviving removal must be pretty low once they reach 20+ years in age.
