  6. Well, one year on update. I replaced battery and haven't seen the warning since. No idea if this was correlation or causation but regardless it's now happy!
  7. Should have made clear it is the trailing arm on the rear of the car and 58mm is the length of the central insert.
  8. Last week
  9. Hello I have a 2006 FRV with the 2.2 diesel engine. 125k miles. Today the car took several attempts to start. Before it fired it was just a fairly quiet whirring sound and no cranking or turning over. Then it fired ok. Is this an obvious problem/fix? I am really not a car person but does this mean starter motor is done for? All advice very gratefully received
  10. my Honda jazz has started to warn me by bleeping and clock appearing at 15mph...
  11. Honda civic coupe EJ2. Manual 1.5 d15b7. Recently brought back to life. Lots of work carried out to revive this beautiful car. Rear arches and partial sill replacement. Resprayed in it's original Chamelia red pearl. This included new bonnet and bumpers with OEM front splitter. Head gasket replaced. Radiator, thermostat and engine temp sensor replaced.

  12. I have a 66 plate HR-V EX with electric folding mirrors. The problem I have is they have a mind of their own, and keep opening and closing whilst driving the vehicle. Sometimes they will close for up to 5 mins and there’s nothing I can do to open them again. clearly an electrical / motor issue, has anyone else experienced a similar problem with their HR-V and what suggestions or advice can you offer please? The vehicle has only covered 27,000 miles. obvs the vehicle is now out of warranty. kind regards

  14. Hi all, I'm looking to purchase my first Honda as I'm after a reliable car that is well specced, well built and not going to lose too much value. I may have to resell in the next 2-12 months, depending on where my job takes me but that's irrelevant. My drive to the office is maybe once a week, 30-40 min B road drive so diesel will get up to temp, every short commute I walk. I also do routine hour plus journeys to see friends or go to customer sites. Now I'm deciding between which to buy from the following, and wondered if there's a difference in build quality as you find with say a BMW 1 series vs a 5, or a Mercedes A class vs an E: Civic 8th gen 2.2 EX 2008 Civic 9th gen 2.2 EX GT Hatch 2013 Civic 9th gen 1.6 EX Plus Tourer 2014 Hr-V 1.6 EX 2015 Cr-V 2.2 EX 2013 Accord 2.2 ES GT saloon 2011 Accord 2.2 EX GT Tourer 2008 Just wondering if there's a peak year for build quality. Unsure on the difference in engines i.e power, both slow but plenty of torque. Tax seems great for the i-DTEC unit other than in the accord for some reason. I don't fancy a remap, I know it kills the 8th gen clutches and guessing the 9th is no different. Obviously the spec on the 9th gen EX Plus is great, far beyond everything else here and I love the shape of the tourer, but is the Civic a lesser car than the Accord tourer, as in would the seats be worse, the soft touch materials less and more importantly the ride? Any insight is greatly appreciated!
  15. It's an easy fix; the auto transmission fluid needs to be changed at regular intervals (specific CVT requirement) and when the fluid is losing it's edge the judder is noticeable. Make sure that you use genuine Honda CVT fluid, it's an easy enough job and I've been doing my wife's car ever since the dealer warranty expired; it's 21 years old now.
  16. Hi I've recently bought a Honda CRV (my third Honda CRV in the last 10 years) but in this particular car, my oil light comes on every 1,000-1,500 miles. When I check the dipstick, there is no oul left so I have to keep topping it up. I've read the handbook which states that I may be expected to put 1 litre of oil in every 625 miles. Has anybody else had this problem? Regards
  17. I have a UK 2005 Honda Accord 2.4. Fault: (1) My VSA activation indicator warning triangle light comes on and stay on. (2) The VSA system indication warning light also comes on after a few 100m driving and stays on. I took my care to my local garage and they got an Error Code of 84-1 but their diagnostics tools doesn't allow further investigation and provides several options of possible causes. Therefore they are unable to fix the fault and suggested my car need to go to a Honda Garage or Honda specialised. Any idea's
  18. I would keep trying the release fluid and see if it does eventually free up Alternatively, try gently moving the wheel backwards and forwards in small motions as you try to the key in the lock

  20. Hi, I've recently noticed that when the needle is sat between 60 and 70 mph, the needle bounces. I think the speed sensor could possibly be faulty. Can someone please tell me where the sensor is located? And is it a straightforward replacement? Thanks Simon
  21. Thanks for the replies. I’ve bought some snow/mud chains to fit and we’ll see what difference they make. I can also load the boot up with ballast if needbe (all jokes aside it may assist!)

    Spare key

    Thanks Alan gsd Did try the WD40 solution but unfortunately for me, it didn’t work. However I started doing some more logical testing as to when the door locks was activated. My analysis was: 1.0. The locks only triggered after 30 sec if the large back door was open. 2.0. Then I started looking the door sensor (see photo). The spring on that has come off so when the door is opened the lever doesn’t retract to the open position. when I manually slide the lever to the open position, the doors don’t lock. Could be I have cracked it, just need either a new lever or a compatible spring.
  25. Hi, did you get any further with fitting a subwoofer? I'm considering this myself for my hrv advance. Thanks
  26. I've just bought a new "24" plate HR-V Hybrid Advance Style which, according to the manual, has the Traffic Sign Recognition System fitted which can show both speed signs and traffic signs. However, the system only ever shows speed signs but never any traffic signs. The dealership cannot understand this and don't know how to fix it and a query direct to Honda UK unhelpfully tells me to go back to the dealership. Has anyone any knowledge of this issue or whether it is still an active system?
  27. This won't help much, but just wanted to say that in terms of obtaining parts for these (depending on what you need) it is rather tricky at times. For example, none of the scrapyards within 30 mile radius of me have any of 1st gen crv's in stock. As you've mentioned some parts are discontinued. The only hope is to keep checking eBay until something pops up, or find someone who is breaking one up for parts, but that would be eBay as well I suppose. Good luck.
