  1. I'd be surprised if flywheel failed. In diesels, yes, many reasons why, But petrol, it's a single mass flywheel and a lot less cranking force. Can't believe it would cost a lot to check too, there should be cover plate between gearbox and the engine which when removed exposes a lot of flywheel. Can be seen in the image below.
  2. Anyone have wiring diagram for power locks by any chance?
  3. So I have this issue that unlock function doesn't always work. Or more like works once in 10-20 attempts. Its the same if you use fob or key in the handle, it turns easily and actuates the doors but then immediately locks again. Once unlocked it locks fine. Is it drivers door lock mechanism that's failing?
  4. Easiest way to do is take multimeter and measure the current between terminal and battery while removing fuses one at a time - if removed fuse doesn't change reading in multimeter put it back and try next one. If none of the fuses help it will need more complex digging..
  5. Did the garage sorted it? Would be surprised if it was flywheel..
  6. The problem I have is that the calliper looks fairly new, possibly recon condition. The piston does not have any rusty spots and would say reasonably tight fit. All seals new. When no fluid inside I can operate the piston quite easily, so not sure if calliper is the issue.. Will try to swap calliper carriers tomorrow and see if issue moves together with it.
  7. Oil pressure sensor is #18 in the image, Honda PN 37240-PHM-003 (code may be different to your engine, I just went for my model). It's located at the front, bottom half of the engine.
  8. Little update, I checked today that there is no brake distributor and all lines from ABS pump goes directly to the each calliper. I took both wheels off and moved callipers away to the free position (in other words pistons fully compressed in) and noticed by right hand side calliper has a lot more wobble than the other side. Could this be linked to brake binding? Anyone breaking FR-V by any chance?
  9. I don't have FR-V wiring diagram (only got one for the engine) but based on my experience with other cars it may be hazards switch that failed or related wiring. Switch is normally the cause. Easiest would be to try another switch, but if you confident with multimeter it can be diagnosed without buying new parts.
  10. Hello all, I am out of ideas and hoping someone can share their ideas and suggestions. I have an 2008 FR-V 2.2 diesel with under 120k miles but for last couple of years it has been hardly used. I replaced all four brake discs and pads as first thing due all brakes being very rusty, only noticing driver side rear calliper was a bit stiff but managed to compress all cylinders without excessive force. Went on to the road and the stiff calliper started to smell badly and brake disc turned darkish (obvious overheat). I naturally thought calliper seized, so took it apart but
