Trunk Release for LX?

It is very quiet around the corner that no one didn't post a thread of the OEM trunk release kit on the LX but I only see aftermarket one. I did done lot of research on it but only showed the aftermarket one or the videos/pictures that don't have the link that go with it.

Has anyone done a DIY, showing how to install the OEM kind? I really don't want to use the aftermarket one b/c I want to use my remote key on with the trunk button install which I saw the video of that. Also what parts am I going to be using and how much I am going to be buying on it?

2007, LX, Sedan.

Thanks.

I've seen the DIY on it a long time ago, but it was very confusing.
The bottom line is that you need to find some wires in your fuse box/MICU and route them to the trunk, and obviously get the factory automatic lock actuator for the trunk lid.
At that point you would need a new FOB with the trunk button too.

I will be installing an after market alarm in my 09 EX and will be adding the aftermarket trunk release solenoid instead.

Can you lend me the link of the DIY but I might remember that I saw that DIY long time ago as well.

But what about that video above? Can I find the white one and just install it to my fob key?


Is the part #11, the one u are talking about?
