  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. Just to update everyone, after a lot of research it turns out that there aren't any options for the catalytic converter. I ordered the EuroFlo. When it arrived, alongside the EuroFlo label it was also marked with the equivalent AS model number, which I take to mean that EuroFlo and AS are selling exactly the same product under different model numbers. There is also a 'Vegas' branded exhaust on the market on some European sites and from looking at the picture I suspect that too is identical. I contacted HJS who said they don't make the exhaust for this model. Meanwhile Genuine Ho

  9. 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

  10. 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 πŸ™‚ 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

  11. Anyone had their cat stolen recently? I have so I tried this. Unbolt the bottom bolt on the nudge bars and lower them and drill new holes in the support brackets then bolt in new position. Thief can no longer get under vehicle. Then purchase a 120db PIR detector (cheap) and attach it anywhere underneath with magnetic strip so if thief jacks up car and goes underneath it will go off and scare them off. Cheaper than a new cat

  12. Hi I have had a 2017 1.6 160bhp Diesel CRV for about four months now and I think its a brilliant motorway cruiser and would thoroughly recommend it. I had a 2.2 diesel Accord tourer before that and the CRV is as good if not better than the Accord. The 160 bhp 1.6 diesel is an amazing engine shame they dropped it

  17. 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.

  23. From what I remember Honda Karma was taken over by a new owner, cant remember the company, & from that point forward the forum went downhill till the company that had taken it over got into difficulty & vanished taking the forum with it. Its sad that facebook & other platforms are slowly killing forums off as facebook really isn't anywhere near as effective a resource as a forum when it comes to searching for information. Its also really nice to have a UK based honda forum. Just a shame its not a little more active on here.

  24. https://www.pistonheads.com/buy/listing/10958891 Great opportunity to buy a future classic. Shared platform with the Rover 216, so plenty of parts available and with a Honda SOHC 1.6L lots of options to tune and aftermarket support. 92,000 miles, Great runner and has just completed 2000 miles on the NC500 with zero faults averaging 41MPG. Fully working Electric Windows all round and Sunroof. Few bits of the interior need tidying up but in a great condition for a 30 year old car. 12v socket needs rewiring but a simple fix. A few bumps and scratches as soon in pictures MO

  25. Hi folks! Been about on various Honda forums over the years, currently own an RD8, CL9, EV1 and GG6, so relatively familiar with the brand and various models. Be nice to hobnob with a few fellow enthusiasts and maybe help out from time to time.

  26. All I know is parts are extremely rare to find and be expected to pay a fortune. Best of looking abroad e.g USA Acura Legend or Indonesia Facebook ka7 parts. But if you come across any suppliers/scrap yards here in the United Kingdom be sure to hit me up and notify us Legend boys 😊

  27. 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

  32. 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.

  33. 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.

  34. I got in touch with the local honda dealer and the car goes in on Thursday for a check. Whilst I was there I spoke to a mechanic and he assured me that there is no known issue with the electric power steering and because the light doesn’t appear on the dashboard he said that a diagnostic check was all he could suggest. I will let you know the outcome.

  41. 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!

  42. Hi everybody, Today I would like to share something about installing 15mm+20mm BONOSS Forged Active Cooling Wheel Spacers for my Honda Civic 10th(FC) with you. My Honda Civic 10th(FC): Chassis model: X (FC) PCD: 5*114.3 mm CB: 64.1 mm Thread: M12*1.5 mm I got them on eBay, took me several days to receive them. I can't wait to install them on my vehicle. But before you choose the right spacers, you need to measure the thickness data that fit the wheels: Cleaning the wheel hub: Much better after cleaning. Now let's get to the installation p

  48. I had the same error code come up on my 06-plate FRV. The problem was intermittent, first the engine malfunction indicator light came on for a couple of days, then it went off for a day or so. Then it came back on for about a day, then over the following two weeks it kept going on and off, but each time it came back, it stayed on for less time and the gap between when it went off and when it next came on again increased then it went off and hasn't been seen for several months. Never got to the bottom of it, nor found out where that particular sensor is (apparently there a

  49. I recently purchased my CR-V and shortly afterwards it developed a fault with the Air Cond (green light flashing on AC control panel) and the Engine Management System warning lamp illuminated. A quick search on the internet for known faults and found one pointing to the AC relay. Once located in the fusebox, it was instantly noticeable that it was defective (rattling noise from within the relay when shaken). A search on eBay and a cheap relay from China was sourced for around Β£3 and then fitted into the fusebox. The system did not fire up straight away...had to clear out the Engine M
