  3. Hi.....welcome to the Club A superb choice of Honda, completely reliable if maintained correctly 1. Try Autolocks or Timpsons as they may be able to cut a key for that period of car 2. IceBoxAutos sell replacement head units with Android connectivity and quite reasonable prices as well

  5. Turns out that what solved the problem was a hard reset of the audio. This was done by the Honda dealer who charged me for the privilege. Must learn how to do it myself for the future. Mind you they did a 25 point winter health check too.

  7. Hi Don't know if you got this sorted but as an update I have had some good results with Mothers Mag And Aluminium / Alloy / Metal Polish on the Accords headlights and at around Β£8 its not too expensive I only tried it by hand , the you tube videos do show it been used with power polishers. I did find the results by hand to diminish the more you did. You may need more than one tub for that window though, and again watch the spoiler Regards Kel

  8. Hi, I brought a Honda Civic Type S lovely to drive. However, does anybody know what products is best to improve visibility of rear spoiler window that is made of Lexan polycarbonate and has UV damage. I wonder if anyone knows if it’s possible to replace rear spoiler window with a glass alternative and if this can be done? I have been quoted 1k to replace and looking for a quick fix in the meantime time cheers. SJ

  10. An update, we figured out when it unlocks and locks again you have a split second to try to open the door. Now the festive period is over the issue has magically resolved itself so will need to see if it reappears before booking in to a garage.

  11. Ah many thanks! I saw that 3/8 insert and was wondering what it was. In that case I think I have got a good idea. I shall take up your advice and grab the Transmax gearbox fluid! Thanks again for all the advice/help you have provided. Hopefully I'll make this car last to 200k miles πŸ™‚

  14. Hi there, I am new to the site, not new to Honda and I have been a Honda Car Specialist for almost 20 years now and run a couple of online communities 🀫 but in the best interest of this community, I will keep that info to myself. So with that said I will have look around to see if I can help some members with my knowledge and experience.🀞 Thanks for reading and I hope everybody has a great 2022. πŸ‘

  16. I will try and dig out an image for you but for reference the drain and fill bolt are located at the rear of the transmission above and below on the outer side of the differential. Basically, where the drive shaft CV joint connects to the gearbox you should spot them easily, loosen the top 17mm bolt first and with a 3/8 insert you can crack open the drain bolt. You will need approx 2L of fluid but get 3L just in case. If the transmission fluid hasn't been done before I would suggest a better fluid than the Honda MTF-3 p/n: 0826799902HE, The Castrol Transmax Manual Multivehicle 75W-90 fluid would be my choice with the higher miles.😏

  17. I am guessing you have located it by now 😏 for future reference and the benefit of others it is located in the rear of the vehicle on the driver's side (pictured of the unit below), the battery is inside the sounder unit. Also, be aware if the car has lost battery charge recently the battery in the alarm sounder will need to charge for about 15-20 minutes, this can be annoying as it will still go off. So I would suggest taking the car for a drive rather than annoy your neighbours, hope that helps?

  18. I joined the forum just recently but can't help noticing many questions/queries go unanswered. Is this a new site that hasn't picked up many members yet? Honda's are so common I would expect to see many posts every day. Am I missing something?

  19. Exactly what has been occurring here and other sites.....there seems to be very little to be gained from linking with Facebook nowadays. Not only that but the Facebook content is mostly unreliable and not based on true fact or science, and more like throwing darts at a diagnostic chart which leads to parts unnecessarily being replaced

  20. Hi Anthony Did you manage to grab any roof rails? They bolt on via mounting points. But you either need to get the gutter seals from the car you obtain the rails from, or cut your existing ones with a hacksaw.

  24. Everybody always avoids Facebook in conversations these days, had some really funny looks when talking to people especially when I say you can find my business on Facebook, check out my reviews etc it's like you've literally spat in their face. However, without Facebook presence it is like committing commercial suicide in business, me personally I hate Facebook. Nevertheless, when you see all these car groups with so many members and they appear to thrive, I just don't get it. πŸ™ƒ I had a Facebook group for one of my car communities and it was getting the numbers, yet killing my main site... I would get new members from Facebook but not interaction or posts, but when forum members started moving to Facebook 😬 I ditched it and things started to even out and one thing I learned very quickly, its the quality of the members, not quantity.

  25. Hi there, if you are sure the alarm sounder backup battery is at fault πŸ‘‰ it is located in the rear of the vehicle on the driver's side (pictured of the unit below) the battery is inside the unit. Also, be aware if the car has lost battery charge recently the battery in the alarm sounder will need to charge for about 15-20 minutes, this can be annoying as it will still go off. So I would suggest taking the car for a drive rather than annoy your neighbours, hope that helps?

  27. Hi Andy, are you still seeking headlights for your Shuttle, may I ask why you need replacements have you considered they might just need cleaning? FYI some shuttles had headlight protectors fitted from new and these can be removed revealing almost like new headlights?

  28. Hi Phil, assuming you haven't had this issue fixed yet, I would certainly say it's the fuel relay, in some rare cases it is the connection to the top of the fuel tank. I offer fuel pump relay repair service available to all coupe owners on my community. So I would like to extend that offer to this Honda community too, if that's permitted by admin πŸ˜‰ so anybody that is suffering with an intermittent starting fault just PM me your details and I will send you a repaired one in exchange for your old relay, just for the cost of postage. πŸ˜‰

  31. I'm not thinking of buying in near-new condition, but would like to see it brought back so that when the car I have needs replacing there'll be a car like this available that's new enough / low enough mileage.

  32. I've seen people posting online (even on this forum I think) about problems with FR-V central locking. But usually the symptom is that one door will not lock or unlock, rather than all doors unlocking and then immediately locking again. The actuators are obviously one per door so usually only one door is affected at a time - although once one goes the others can start to go too, it's unlikely they would all start playing up on exactly the same day. Good luck with it - hope you manage to sort it out.

  33. I have no idea I'm afraid but have you tried unlocking the doors with the key rather than pressing the remote control buttons? There is a feature (at least on mine) that seems to be intended to guard against accidentally unlocking the car. If you unlock the doors and then don't open any door within a set time (I think it's a few minutes) it locks itself again. Perhaps that timer has gone wrong? (Unfortunately I have no idea where it is or how it works/how to troubleshoot/replace it)

  34. Unfortunately, florin_cars is correct. A lot of people tend to use Facebook as it is easier and more accessible than maybe logging into a forum. However, the level of response in a forum is usually likely to be more reliable and accurate than FB along with moderated comments. The forums rely on members signing up and also assisting with other members' issues with their cars otherwise the posts tend to go unanswered (for a few days at least).

  35. It's indeed a pretty brilliant design ; it's not as good as the Multipla (have had two) in some key respects (latter has better side visibility, better exterior mirrors for parking, better seating positions, especially for longer leg drivers, and its throttle position is more comfortable) but is of immeasurably better quality, the Multipla requiring - for example - frequent front-suspension triangle replacement, they suffer from bi-mass flywheel issues etc and the general reliability is poor. The only downside of the 2.2 Diesel is it's very thirsty. Over here (France) you can still get circa 100.000 km FR-V's for around 6-7k€

  36. Same problem with my CRX targa 1993. Will drive fine then switch off and try 10 mins later and turns over but no start! same problem few years ago. Changed the coolant sensor and problem fixed. This time no such luck. Think it’s the main fuel relay but getting at it is a nightmare. Ordering one today in hope I can at least unplug old one and attach new one. Let you know.

  38. Is anyone else seeing a problem with the clock on their Honda? it seems like there is an issue on cars where the clock is linked to the Satnav across a broad range of models/years. My 2007 Accord certainly has the problem. There is more information here. https://jalopnik.com/honda-clocks-are-stuck-20-years-in-the-past-and-this-mi-1848306970
