  1. I have a 2018 CRV 2.0 auto. I do about 5-6K per year. I was aware of the fuel consumption issue but with the low mileage I felt for me personally it wasn't an issue. Most my driving is urban and relatively short distance. I currently average 29 - 30 mpg around town. It may not be the quickest but again for me I find it definitely adequate for my style of driving. Reliability and comfort are good. As a Honda owner for some 20 years I am probably biased, the CRV is an easy vehicle to drive, and the driving position I find is excellent, and I have had no problem in the last 3 years with reliabil

  2. 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

  8. Thanks for that, I guess, I will do the smaller of the services, rather than the full service, but change the oil in anycase. So I will get a basic service pack and a oil change pack. I will check with the garage to see if anything else needs doing when they carry out the service. MOT was in Jan and apart from the brake pads need doing, nothing else was mentioned then, when it passed the MOT. Great stuff

  10. Hi I have just put a genuine spoiler on my car and yes I believe it is a bit of a faf to change the light. I have attached a link to the fitting instructions of the spoiler. If you look at how you fit it it shows how to fit the light so maybe you could use this in reverse. my advice is to buy a genuine light, I tried a cheap one on eBay and it was rubbish. https://www.coxmotorparts.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/08F02T1G6-.pdf

  11. I guess some scrapyards should be the next stop then but they could have potentially suffered the same damage as yours. Most items have a warranty period with them even though they are used parts

  14. Hi Den It may be worthwhile looking on eBay to see if there are any clips that match the ones you have. I have managed to source some obscure clips for cars in the past this way.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  22. For Sale: 1998 Honda Civic 1.4i 5-door. 47,500-ish original miles on the clock. "Fur" is still on the doors on the inside. Upholstery has been covered for nearly its entire life. Headliner needs some attention. Very reliable. Would be an ideal second car or for a new driver. Owner is moving abroad.

  23. Honda CR-V heavy duty boot tray from 2012 car. Custom-fit tray, designed to protect the boot of your car from dirt and water. Obviously used but in brilliant condition with years of use left. Some wear and tear on the front rim as shown on photos. Only selling as we have a new version of the CR-V and sadly the tray does not fit. RRP £109 I also have a black fabric boot liner (pvc coated) with bumper flap made by titan covers . Again for 2007-2012 model. Well used - backing material cracked but still has plenty of wear to protect the boot of your CRV from dust, dirt, grease and dog

  24. I had almost exactly the same problem (Honda Accord 2.2 icdti 2007) - I have an excellent auto electrician - Mark in Stoke. He diagnosed the Voltage Controller ( a small part attached to the alternator) he changed it and no probs since then. Honda wanted £850 supply and fit - Mak charged £75 all in - Brilliant

  25. Hello everyone, I have a Black 1987 Prelude Si, that has been wrecked; however, it has a relative new engine in it that has only 50,000 miles on it! I have all the paperwork of maintenance history, and it was maintained meticulous with oil and filter changes and scheduled maintenance! The car has 362,985.4 miles on the speedometer with the engine replacement taking place at 310,000 miles performed at Honda dealership. There are many good parts on the car, such as 4-speed transmission, some of the front and rear suspen

  26. hi, they seem to be standard Accord wheels, either them or off the Prelude, im sure theyre standard Honda wheels from one of the two. actually more than likely its off the prelude because thats a 4x114.3 PCD car just like your civic, (i may be wrong) but i think the accord of that generation is 5x114 PCD.. hope this helps answer your question thanks ahmed

  27. Hi, I've had a look around and it seems fuse f8 does more than reversing lights. Try turning on everything in turn with that fuse out to see what its protecting... I also had a current drain with the car locked, turns out it was Bluetooth module not shutting down... Does yours have Bluetooth/hft? These are very well known to fail. In the accord the module is right behind and above the centre air vents, don't know if yours will be...

  29. 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

  31. You've probably sorted it by now, but I had similar problem. My car would draw 250mA when off and locked...I only noticed as I couldn't use it for a few days as I had sent the abs pump off to be fixed. Car only just started, so I looked into it, for me it was the bluetooth/voice control unit circuit board...wasn't shutting off properly for some reason. Couldn't find a new/used unit for a good price so found the permanent 12v to the board, snipped it and connected to 12v ignition, so only comes on when driving... P.s. the alarm battery backup is inside the alarm itself...

  32. Could it also be that the rear diff oil is needing changed? I experienced something similar with a 2010 model. It was like a shuddering feel through the car. A relatively simple DIY job.

  37. Ok thanks for the advice. I just realized that it has got EPS. So I am confused about the full lock thing now. I think I under tightened the belt so I did it again today to about 6-7mm roughly and haven't had a squeal since. Yeah the college is in a bit of a crisis right now but fingers crossed because I am enjoying myself there so far.

  40. Hi Dan...welcome to the Forum I would have a look at it first and determine your skill level and also the tools required before diving into the task. With me, its more limited space to get my hands in several different directions within the confined area between the engine and chassis 😞 Otherwise, it should be a straightforward enough task you should be able to attempt. Let us know how you get on with it

  41. Hello Trevor, Thank you. That was very kind of you. I've done scrap yards near by, but can try further afield. I've never heard of a vehicle trimmer, but I shall follow it up. If I eventually find the Holy Grail, I shall post the result. Hilda
