  1. This is totally true, it's down to the dye in copied discs not working well with the optical pickups, causing them to work & spin constantly which ultimately exhausts them and causes accelerated wear. Particularly the case with the pre facelift accord v2.xx systems. the v3.xx systems seem less effected but i still wouldn't recommend it. If you try a copied disc you'll hear a difference in how hard the drive is working and notice the extended time it takes for the ok button to appear after the warning message. also need to be mindful of a certain ebay seller (nav-upd

  5. Thanks Trevor, I did try that approach, but wasn't successful, I think lack of part numbers, makes it much more difficult. However, I got pointed in the right direction and found the clips along with practically everything else you could think of for a Honda! lol If anyone else reading this, happens to be looking for similar items, here is the link. https://www.lingshondaparts.com/ The clips are pricey, but they are genuine Honda items. The part numbers are displayed, which may aid a search for pattern versions. Thank again for t

  6. Anything with the same PCD, bore, and Offset should fit. As an example, I have a set of S2000 17 inch alloys with summer tyres (225/45/17), and the standard 16 inch FR-V alloys with winter tyres for the cold part of the year - everything other than August then 🙂 The spec for both vehicles matches, so a straight fit without any adjustments - other than lower profile tyres. There's a very good article which describes PCD, Bore, and Offset at Alloy Guide although you'll probably find other similar descriptions too. Bear in mind that the Bore is the bit in the middle which bears the weight of

  7. Just had a reversing camera fitted to my 2017 SE Navi by Audiofile Incar of Bishops Stortford. Well pleased with the result - no exposed wiring and superb picture from the navigation screen.

  9. Yes, my wife's car has suffered from this problem since being bought new from Swansway Rochdale a couple of years ago. It frequently goes flat and the garage and the AA rescue service tell me that this is caused by the type of battery fitted to cars with stop-start systems. We have called out the rescue service at least a dozen times in the past two years. Go to a battery specialist and if your car has stop-start ensure that the correct replacement is supplied. Honda apparently know this is a persistent problem but seem unwilling to find a complete solution. Good luck.

  13. Hi Qc2 , I did as you suggested and it worked a treat , I sprayed a liberal amount of WD40 in and around the boot door handle using the tube attachment, and left it for half an hour , when I tried the handle there was full movement but the door didn't open, so I locked and unlocked the doors using the key fob , and tried again and...Hurrah !! it opened and has been working ever since....Thanks for your great advice it is very much appreciated....cheers 🍻

  15. The adjustment you need is the track (whether the wheel is pointing forward or off to the side slightly). This sometimes comes about if the rear wheel has been bumped against a kerb hard enough to knock the alignment out slightly. There are adjustable link arms but the locknuts can be a bit tight and may need freeing off first. If they start from the rear of the vehicle first and then check the front afterwards, most don't bother and just compensate by making adjustments to the front only.

  17. The loom on your vehicle would also be used for other vehicles with different equipment different to yours. If there aren't any warning lights on and everything is working fine, there's no need to worry about it......

  18. Either a broken wire or faulty locking motor usually. You'll find the broken wire inside a rubber tube in the door jam.

  19. Agreed. As an auto electrician, it is usually the battery or alternator at fault. Over/under voltage.

  21. Hi On my 2.2 I-dtec Accord i used Mobil 1 0-30 ESP Oil in the Engine and Honda Transmission Fluid in the Gearbox. I now have a 2017 MK4 CR-V and will be using Castrol Edge Pro (which was apparently developed jointly with Honda for their Diesels) in the Engine and Honda Transmission Fluids everywhere else all from Coxes Honda Parts. I think it's all a case of personal choice as long as lts the correct grade and spec and it's a quality oil its down to Brand loyalty

  25. Thanks Trevor. Yes, I spent a lot of money restoring it. I don’t suppose you get the level of crime In Dorset that we get in London, but my advice to you and all Honda car owners is to get a tracker and protection for your catalytic converter. Take care

  28. Ive also just had the same issue with the blower not working. I replaced the resistor after I was told it was the issue only it didn't fix the problem. Had an auto electrician look at it and checked the motor was still in good working order by putting a direct live to it. Eventually located the problem which was the circuit board behind the heater blower controls on the dash. Bit of a pain to remove (but the auto electrician did that for me) but simpl enough to put back together with a new control unit sourced from eBay. Total cost £140- auto electrician was £100 of tha

  29. Yes its probably once or twice a month in the summer and it stays in the garage most of the winter so I guess I should just get out there with the top down and use it more often.

  30. In 2015 I bought a 1998 white Civic LS 1.5 Litre engine hatchback from a workmate. It had belonged to his mother who had bought it from new and kept it in a garage, hardly ever using it. My children used it to learn to drive. Job done. It has 25,000 miles on the clock and is in wonderful condition. A real gem. I keep it off the road in West Sussex. Anyone interested in buying it for £950?

  31. I will probably go and do that. The local Honda dealership just phoned up asking if I wanted to try both, how did they know? Really keen as they have a 0% apr offer, so will end up with a Civic this time next week if all goes well.

  33. David in Devon asked about water ponding in spare wheel well. I had same problem in my 2007 CRV, which I eventually found to be water coming in along back wall of well, where original sealant is smeared. Sprinkle talcum powder onto the vertical face and inspect for 'runs' in the powder after rain. I applied auto sealant from the inside to seal the place(s) of water ingress. It seems to be OK now, 4 months later. ps: I drilled a small hole, approx 2mm Dia, in the middle of the well to drain any water, but careful where you drill the hole!

  34. My 2008 Jazz front washer pump not working recently. Research on the 'net + Haynes manual revealed both front & rear pumps at bottom of reservoir, under the RHS wing. Hard to get to because of difficult to remove wheel arch liner. Most times the pump fails because of stuck rotor (gummed bearings?). Some suggest hitting the motor to vibrate it and work it loose. I adopted a different approach: - Ran the rear washer continuously until the reservoir was empty. Then heated a full kettle of water to near boiling point and poured into the reservoir. After about 15/20 mins, BINGO, pump

  35. Hi there! I also have joined this site only few days ago. I have the i ctdi as well, very underrated engine in my opinion... I had the timing chain replaced last year as it was noisy, apart from that I've had no engine related troubles what soever, seems to be quite reliable...

  40. The Haynes CR-V manual gives full details of the 2.2CDTI engine and much of the suspension etc is the same. Wiring I do not know about as fuseboxes are different. Only bought one for engine overhaul. Like you, I cannot get a manual either. The US ones (Accura) have different engines and trim. David

  42. Hi....welcome to the Forum Certainly sounds like water ingress in a body control unit. Alternative thoughts are maybe it could be some wiring in the tailgate area so when the tailgate opens and closes it breaks the wiring in the loom which connects the two. Can give loads of strange faults, easy to check and repair though Let us know how you get on with it

  46. Thanks for the warm welcome Trevor. After only 4 days I can confidently say that this is the best car I've ever owned. Every day is a wee adventure of discovery. I'm averaging 54 mpg which gives me a warm and glowing warming glow every time I see it on the display. I've fallen, hook, line and sinker😍 As for the mic, yes., it remains a puzzle. I guess I was just afraid I was missing out on another wonderful surprise, but hey, there's enough to keep me happy....😂
