The connectors are supposed to be packed with electrical grease to keep them clean of dirt and prevent corrosion. It also helps with ensuring a good connection, but that's a moot point for the pins in the connectors.
The service manuals call for the connectors to be filled with this stuff. If you want it to last another 25 years, I'd say to replace the grease.
I got a new shell, just need to stop driving the DX so I can work on it.
I've got a filter for my mouth, it just isn't a good one.
I clean and refresh dielectric grease whenever possible. It does a few things: makes connectors easier to pull apart, keeps water out, and slows oxidizing of the terminals. I live in a wet area and no longer wish to mess around with cruddy, stuck, corroded connectors and lamp sockets.
Keep it real. This is the only Honda forum worth my time.You make it happen.
