That's funny because I see people getting ripped off everyday in the For Sale forums, for like $20 shipped lol. That's good to know.

Dtownz does it just snap into place? It doesn't just sit on top right? No box needed just that cover then I'll swing by and pick one up today lol.

It fits on my stock box perfectly ..


But my battery is now bigger and I had to put a little clip in place of the long rod that you slid it into ..


I will post a picture but im sure it will fit over your battery ...

Yeah Ive seen quite a few acura guys trying to rip off people .

So I just went to the dealership one day and they quoted me about $7.50

And I was literally like "SOLD! Gimme my battery cover" haha

I only have these two pictures for now .





If you look at the second picture right next to the Intake Filter you will see a little white clip .

My dad put it on so that it doesnt pop off when I hit a bump or something ..

And I must say It works pretty well

I will try to get better pictures ..

What year is the TL battery cover, or do you get the one that is the same year as the Accord, I have a 2002 V6.

The year of your car/TL battery cover is irrelevant. Just get a TL battery cover from 99-03 they are all the same.

Anyone put in on a 4 banger? It seems like it should be about the same, or you could make it work. My battery is the last thing i want to show off.

^^ different dealers charge different prices for parts. There are 2 Honda dealers in Austin...one charges $5.60 for an S2K oil filter...the other charges $10+. There's nothing different about the filters.
