Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Tyres tips please
« Last post by culzean on December 11, 2017, 07:48:15 PM »
Hi all, checking my tyres they look a bit threadbare, well at least 2 of them do. I passed the mot recently so they must be just about ok, however, I've got 2-3 hundred quid to spare, and this weather has made me think about changing all 4 of them for new ones. Would really appreciate some recommendations on what to get? Not looking for budget, tyres but also not top end tyres either. Just mid range, and if poss, best place to have them done?  I'm currently in Stockport. Any help appreciated,. My tyres are 175-65. R14 82T

Try ATSEuromaster.  I have always found then very good - 3 pages of tyres for your Jazz,  After years of doing high mileage and using Michelin ES (which wear well) after I retired I got some Avon tyres for my Civic,  they grip well,  are very quiet but I cannot comment how well they wear,  but they are made by a British company (Avon are based in Somerset hence the 'Avon' - maybe for river Avon)

Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: The first signs of winter..
« Last post by andruec on December 11, 2017, 07:27:47 PM »
Minus six C this morning, a clear sky, frosty, and a hint of fog. My Jazz started immediately at the first turn of the key and ran normally. The steering wheel was a bit cold though!
I haven't started mine since Friday as I was working from home today. We'll see how it starts tomorrow I suppose. Still - so far it's doing nothing particularly untoward which is nice but I'm curious as to why. I've just checked here and I was still whinging about it last February after my service so it doesn't look like anything the dealer could have done.

Tomorrow will be interesting for other reasons - I'll probably find out how this version of the Jazz performs on ice. Previous ones were a bit 'rev happy' and this one has a torque converter that apparently gives more low-end power which isn't what you want on ice :-/

I do a high mileage, and found Michelin Energy Savers are the best value for grip and duration. I get mine from www.blackcircles.com once you have bought the tyres, you can then choose the tyre fitters that can fit the locally. I pay 70 a tyre, you will find cheaper but will they last as long or grip as well?

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Screen washer out put weak
« Last post by weeleyboy on December 11, 2017, 06:26:38 PM »
My 2014 Jazz which only has 7000 miles on the clock suffers from an inadequate output from the front windscreen washer nozzles -  they take a long time to start after pulling the lever and only have a very weak output. I've tried the usual remedies of cleaning the nozzles without any improvement. The supply pipe from the pump to the nozzles has a joint before it disappears in to the washer housing and if I uncouple it and operate the washer there seems to be a good flow and reasonable pressure so maybe the problem is in the housing eg squashed pipe or similar. I can't workout how to remove the cover in order to check the pipes in there - how do I remove it?
Any advice much appreciated.

It is well known in energy industry that for every renewable source it needs 100% backup from reliable source (coal, gas, nuclear)  so what exactly is the point ?

Not every renewable. I will never understand why there isn't more effort put into tidal turbines.

Invest in Green Energy - and double up by investing in non Green energy to cater for the 50% of the time Green does not work

Policy of muppets.

What would you say to a 2, 4 or 5 seater EV, up to 300 km range (22kWh battery), from 14,900? And Swedish to boot. Due on the shelves next year.

Jocko's First Rule:

The magnitude of the disaster is inversely proportional to the contingency plans put in place.

This has been found true a hundred times during my adult lifetime.
