As with DIY Install of Rear Seat-Back Protectors, spoilers first with completed install for the Cargo Side Panel Protectors... 1) left side, looking rearward, 2) left side, looking forward, 3) right side, looking forward. A minor nuisance with the Honda Cargo Tray. There is sufficient clearance with the Honda Cargo Tray in place, but there will be interference when trying to open the storage cover with the Cargo Tray on top. Remove the cargo tray first and the storage cover will open without interference.

If you wish to attempt a DIY, the PDF attached below is the installation instructions for the 2019 Passport. It can also be found online from sellers of Honda OEM accessories. No need to repeat the instructions, but below are some tips. It is not difficult.
  • Unpack your order and be sure that you have all necessary parts and hardware for the install.
  • A work light will be helpful, especially for dark interiors.
  • A roll of wide masking tape will be more efficient.
  • A second drill helps to expedite the install. One for the pilot drill bit and one for the cutter or larger drill bit.
  • Have a vacuum for clean up.
  • The female snaps attached to the protectors have some adjustment/movement to it. You do not need to be precise, but it helps to center the female snaps before marking the holes for drilling.
  • Take your time with the placement of the protector and marking the holes for the first two snaps. That will dictate location of the other snaps.
  • If you are using a Rotabroach cutter, clean the cutter after cutting through the carpet layer. The carpet and masking tape clogs the cutter. 5 locations (on each side) are in the wheelwell with a carpet atop of flexible plastic. 3 locations (on each side) are hard plastic.
  • Follow the recommended order for drilling and installing each snap, because...
  • As you complete each hole and snap, leave the protector attached to each completed snap. The snaps takes a bit of patience to align and snap in place, especially on the flexible wheelwell. The protector is flexible enough to be folded over to drill and install the next snap.
Good luck.

The items you hold are the female snaps that are on the covers. The rivets are the male snaps. Contact your supplier for replacement of the missing items. If you check the installation instructions (above), these are the rivets (below) that are pushed into the holes to be drilled. You should have 16 corresponding female snaps on the covers. Good luck.

Since I saved so much in labor by installing most of stuff myself and buying parts online compare to dealers I went ahead and shop around labor in dealers. Put in order for wireless charger install $99 and $109 for this cargo side panel.

didn’t wanted to risk and just paid it to have peace of mind.

Those plastic things pop off way too easily. That and the ribbed portions are my big complaints about these protective covers.
I'm wondering if WeatherTech has something for this that attaches better.

with the wireless charger do you use carplay or android auto?

Is that a dongle plugged in to the usb that connects it?
