  2. Hi there, I've wanted to change the head unit in my 2014 Honda Civic to something a little bit more modern. I took the car to Halfords as they seemed to be good value. However, they tried installing the stereo only to find that the stereo would turn itself off after about a minute or so. They tried two different units (Kenwood and Pioneer) and the same thing happened. In the end I think they just gave up as they didn't know what the issue was. Apparently they tried a few cables too, to no avail. Thankfully, I was not charged for anything. Does anyone know why this might happen? The standar
  3. Hi all. Just thought I'd comment on access to the oil filter Mk2 2.0 petrol) in case anyone didn't already know! All the guides seem to state that you need to raise the car up to access the filter. We'll, having just changed mine I can tell you that's not necessary. If you point the steering to the right, you can easily reach the filter through the wheel arch. Simple. Next on the list is valve clearances...
  4. Hi guys. I know it's a long shot but I had my house burgled and the keys stolen to my Honda Civic, Black, 2017 PJ17 OVW.

My Mrs Ford Fiesta was taken too and content was found dumped in the Norden, near Rochdale, Greater Manchester area. thank you, jaysam666@gmail.com

  8. Hi....welcome to the Forum I have found that several times before when one family member gets a certain brand of car then the others tend to follow and with Honda reliability its easy to see why this methodology works. Good to have you onboard

  11. Hi....welcome to the Forum I have in the past moved the door seal around just slightly (shuffled along by about an inch or so) and this can give the seal a slightly different profile and may give better sealing.
  12. I don't personally own a smoke generator although I would like one (bit expensive) so would source a local garage that has one
  13. Hi....welcome to the Forum If you can find an old school panel beater they will be able to repair that damage. Trouble is nowadays they are not (in the main) capable of repairing damaged panels or it is not economical for them to repair (as in they don't make quick money out of it). Replacement panels are the only route for most people nowadays but if you can find someone who can heat and beat the dents then respray afterwards the that is what I would do.
  14. That's exactly what I thought. I've put the exact same part number in on a few websites and the part is coming in at around £80-100. I think I'll go for one of them.
  15. Hi....welcome to the Forum Haven't heard of it being an issue. If the engine is very low miles then until it is completely bedded in the you may get some washdown in the bores and in which case you could use a slightly heavier weight oil until then.
  16. Hi Usman.....welcome to the Forum That's a fine looking machine, surprised the styling didn't carry across onto other UK models. Good to have you onboard

  19. Hi All, Living out in Japan and have been visiting a few car lots and workshops, wanted to share some with you, there is some very nice Hondas included. https://youtu.be/njUiow1LyIY
  20. Thanks for sharing this useful information. I think there more you can do to deter a thief the better and by putting as many hurdles in the way the more it will deter them.
  21. I think you'll find that the PGMFI system relay will run the pump and other subsystems but it will still rely on a crank sensor signal to trigger the injectors. If no signal then the system will not know the engine is turning and also the frequency of pulses relating to engine rpm. Worth looking at any connections and wiring to the Crankshaft (and Camshaft) sensor just in case they have been swapped over accidentally or not connecting properly
  22. It may be a situation of having to code it into the vehicle. This is common on many modern vehicles as the unit will need to communicate via CanBus and this means it needs coding with the correct equipment. A Honda dealership or Independent Honda specialist repairer should be able to resolve this issue.
  23. That doesn't sound good....it has a timing chain and these can start to rattle and lead to engine failure if allowed to progress. https://www.car.info/en-se/honda/civic/9th-generation-16-i-dtec-6615256/specs I would have the car checked at a dealership and see if there is any warranty recall on it
  24. Hi....welcome to the Forum Its quite straightforward really any issues just give me a shout and I can guide you through it.
  25. Looks like excessive water content in the fuel filter which needs draining off from the bottom of the housing
  26. Hi...welcome to the Forum It depends on where you drive mostly, e.g. in town I would advise the petrol engine all day long. Extra Urban and Motorway would probably go diesel engine for economy. All round, the FRV is a spacious vehicle and should be every bit as reliable as any other Honda.
  27. my dad had a 2008 Lexus GS450h called Lexi
