  1. Been pulled over once, had a headlight out that must have just gone because it was alright the day before...what are the chances...
  2. Hi, have you driven or been passenger in a car with oversized wheels not designed for it? It usually messes up the ride, handling etc so much you never wished you'd bothered...
  3. Hi all, just want your opinion on led headlight bulbs fitted to cars that came with standard bulbs. I must admit to doing this myself, just for the reason that some cars are a right pain to change bulbs.
  4. Hi Pompey Andy! Am I right thinking you had the 8th gen accord? That's another reason I love the 7th gen, no diesel particle filter, although we do pay more tax because of this... I've changed both rear bearings on mine, as well as sticking rear callipers...d.i.y job though so no big bucks...
  5. Might get one of these for next car, if they're still making them in few years time...
  6. Hi Derkie, glad you're happy with your Jazz! I couldn't drive a car without some form of spare wheel, my accord has a space saver although there seems to be plenty of room there, might measure up and see if I can fit a full size one day... Glad you've bought one though...
  7. Having changed cambelts before I thought chains wouldn't be that much difference, until I looked online.... Sump off, injectors and cover off, crank pulley off, sheesh big job then. Had to phone around few garages to find one that does this...and the one I did wasn't too happy about it!!!
  8. 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...

    I know that the alarm will sound if there is a problem with its backup battery, which is inside the alarm...
  10. 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...
  11. She sell sanctuary by the Cult! And not the slimmed down version, the original 7 minutes!

    Car Servicing

    I remember my dad showing me around my first car, all the fluid levels and other bits and bobs...seems like these days you just wait for a warning lamp to come on... Also what's with people that call out the AA or RAC to change a wheel?!
  13. Did you feel any pulsing through brake pedal like the abs pump was coming on? Maybe a wheel speed sensor on the way out, I think most cars now will cut or reduce power to engine if it thinks the car is losing traction...
  14. Hi all, having a hard time trying to track down a service manual (book form, not online) for the accord ictdi. I know Heynes don't do this model, does anyone know of Amy other? I've always found a manual for my previous cars, but it seems this model was not popular enough to make one... Closest I've found is for the Acura tsx...
  15. Hi b4u2! I also have the accord, in diesel form... Can't see me changing it for the forseeable future...
