Not being a technic, my biggest concern with the exhaust hitting road 'crap' is the Cat. I have read on several occasions that sharp knocks to the Cat can damage it. While the cost of an exhaust is not funny a replacement Cat is a bit of a disaster.
Incidentally, slightly off subject:  Followed a double decker bus along a road subject to 20mph with the mount everest type speed bumps. The bus left me for dead as his wheels straddled the humps. I would guestimate his speed at a good 30mph. I understood speed humps were for safety???????. Ten ton of bus would do considerable more damage than my little Jazz.

Interesting article, thanks. One slightly puzzling thing is that manual intervention is needed (>80% throttle) to enter "clear flood mode", so the driver has to know to do this. Given the amount of clever automation described in the rest of the article, why can't the engine detect that it's flooded and do the necessary automatically ? Might save some breakdown callouts.

The 2nd link CULZEAN refers to, is the one that can be accessed via Google. In fact it has jogged my memory, it was on the fitfreak site where I first found the link.
If you ignore the bits that don't matter I found it very easy to follow, in fact I downloaded it for my 'reference book' to be kept for any future foray to the back of the engine.
Incidentally it illustrates in the first link where anti seize is shown, how easily us poor mutts can be confused.
In the first link it speaks of special grease for electrical connections. I can only find NO-OX-ID which although available in the UK 20 plus postage is a bit much.
Are there any alternatives to this special grease available in the UK at a reasonable price. In most cases we motorists only need a small tube.

Agree that road surfaces and furnishings are tough there days. How these lower slung cars go on is a mystery to me.

When I drive my son's Jazz I have to remember to be really careful. The slightly raised ride height of the HR-V is a lot more forgiving.

Well the guy at Tyre City in Halifax could not have been more helpful. He said without even looking at the car and going off his experience and the age of the vehicle, that it was almost certainly the alloy rim.

He popped the wheel off and showed us where it was fizzing through the edge of the rim at one spot. Then he wire-wooled it down and popped it back on, topped up all 4 tyres - all for no charge.

His advice was also to get the wheels refurbished and he recommended a place in Bradford that does a full refurb for 1 per inch - i.e. 15 for a 15 inch wheel. http://www.cascoatings.com/

As the car resides mostly in York, we will probably look for somewhere over there that can do this job and get all four wheels done, since one brand shiny new wheel on it's own would look odd, and at least one other wheel is showing similar tendencies.

I tend to agree Culzean; and there are certainly plenty of potholes around. I think they are phasing out speed bumps (sleeping [policemen) and going to speed tables (not so dramatic). They are installing several along our main road at the moment and two Pelican crossings, as a new school is being built. The problem was too many idiot motorists who were doing up to 60mph in a 30 zone. As usual the few make it bad for the most. :(

Very interesting thanks. I see that is a GM article but I guess similar is likely to apply to all modern cars.

I assume our old (going back 13-14 years here) Micra didn't have the "clear flood mode".

Very useful to know if it happens to me. I shan't be so nervous about shunting in future.

culzean

I'm not to sure, Is it possiable to take out the lock and move the latch to the unlocked postion?

The latch is at the 2 o'clock position I need it to be at the 6o'clock position so I can shut the tailgate and try and lock the tailgate.

plenty of info on this forum,  these are just a sample....... (use search function tailgate or boot lock)

Can you hear the tailgate solenoid 'clunking' when you try to lock and unlock the doors ?
