My question for you is why haven't you taken it to Honda? no warranty or something?
The latch is on the center pillar. It's not near the front fender. I think you're thinking about the front hinge.
I've already taken the car in. Honda seems to only fix major and obvious mechanical problems. (But only after many years, just look into the 3rd gear issues that many people had with their RSX, and 8th gen Civics) My dash buzzes like a $5 toy when I hit V-Tec as well and they won't even try to fix it. The manager at Campus Honda told me I just have to live with it after I showed him the noise. I bought this car because I love the sound of the engine. Now all I hear is that stupid dash buzzing like a piece of shit. It's Honda Canada's policies I think, I even had their second level support personnel tell me they won't fix my dash.
I can lightly hit my dash with my fist and hear it vibrate inside, something's obviously loose in there.
It's funny because when I owned a Dodge they always had no problem fixing anything I had an issue with. They really took care of you. Honda on the other hand has really let me down.
They do advertise a bumper to bumper warranty. It's really frustrating.
