I talked to 6 dealerships in a major city and they all said that you had to remove the head unit. Then I called a small town Honda dealer who says he was just working on a head unit. They just pop off he says.
Here is how to do it:
Use both hands and put your nails under either side of the "clear" part of the volume knob. Pull FIRMLY, and slowly (but pretty hard!). It will pop right off.
The 06 and 07 versions have crappy grey paint that wears off FAST. I bought the 05 ex version (black with chrome plate). They are all the same connector from 03-07. The black chrome plated looks and WEARS the best. 05 was the last year they did chrome.
When you push it on, LINE up EVERYTHING! It's important! Push firmly until it snaps on!
My wife's is an 07. All the Accord 07's have black dashes so I need the knob to be black with just chrome.
I used this 05 part #Honda Part 39103-SDA-A11ZA
Genuine Honda KNOB ASSY., VOLUME DIAL *TCHROME* (CHROMIUM PLATING)
It's for a 2005 EX accord but it fit my 2007 SE accord AWESOME.
bernardi honda walked me through it! Props to them!
