Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: Replace flanged caliper bolts
« Last post by auntyneddy on April 28, 2017, 02:05:59 PM »
As I needed both the  flange bolts and the bellows that keep the crud out of the slider pins, I bought a kit off Ebay. Considerably cheaper than Honda parts. Whilst I appreciate E bay parts might be inferior, I am surprised
that the Honda ones are soft enough to round off.
Given the last persons to touch the brakes was a Honda  dealer, it begs the question are their tools worn out?

Fingers crossed I have good news.

The squeak was coming from 2 Exhaust Ring Gaskets. V cheap fix.

I did get the drop link replaced as well, though got the garage to do this as well.

The car is now very quiet and sounds like a brand new car again  :D :D

Steve-m beat me to it. I was going to give you a link to Lings Honda Parts but his link is much better and does later cars.

You can get a slider pin and bolt kit off Ebay. Look here:

I've not bought one yet but probably will when I come to replace my discs and pads.

Good luck.

Hi TG,

Thanks for your informative reply, that's pretty much what I was hoping to hear. I'm definitely going to explore this further. It is the basic key that I am going to try to change.

I read of a place not too far from me that might be able to clone keys so I will definitely be walking the area to go in all the shops. Will post an update if I actually attempt the transfer to a flip key.
Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: What MPG are you getting from your Honda Jazz ?
« Last post by City Guy on April 28, 2017, 05:35:36 AM »
43 mpg

2008 Mk 2 GE8 Honda Fit RS (Japan).

Hong Kong, city driving approximately 6-7 miles each trip, with aircon.

195/50r16 tires means they're slightly smaller than the standard wheels that came with the car, so I believe the mpg figure the computer gives is less than actual.

My daughter had a Vauxhall Frontera, a goodly number of years ago, and it had wide sports wheels. Even with its knobbly tyres and four wheel drive it was useless in the snow.

True,  the extra weight of many 4WD vehicles works against them in slippery conditions because the heavier the vehicle the more power has to be put through tyre contact patch to climb a slope,  and also braking can be a problem with extra weight overcoming any grip the tyres may have.

I have now sprayed the other window vertical seals with silicone, all moving smoothly and faster.

« Last post by culzean on April 27, 2017, 08:46:02 PM »
Sometimes zinc or passivated zinc steel bodies are used for motors,  these can also develop a powdery white coating under certain circumstances,  try the motor with a magnet to see if it is aluminium or zinc coated steel - if zinc coated I would not clean it too vigorously and risk removing some of the zinc coating,  rather just wipe it over and use WD or other sticky coating to keep moisture away.
