I think we are fairly safe with our hybrid Jazz cars.
Our HV battery is only 0.75Kw as compared with the 30 or 40Kw batteries in the cars shown, so only about 2% of the energy available for possible fire risk. ;D

Very good advice Dan, always disclose. However, I'm interested in how an inusrer could determine what a car was optioned with 16yrs ago?

With regard to parts, I would turn to ebay. Either search for the part, or Jazz breaking and contact the company to see if they can list the part you want. Also, there are specialist Honda breakers if you search online, and then the likes of findapart or breakerlink etc.

You nailed it there embee. Generation snowflake gets caught out by snowflakes!  :D :D

Honestly they should try driving a proper old car. I ran Citroen Dyane's for 10k's miles. No equipment whatsoever. Still managed to commute 15 miles to work in 6" of snow with just 30bhp and 125/15 tyres. Honestly, you have to wonder how folk would cope today. It had one speed wipers, no heater fan, no insulation etc etc.

The eastern bloc countries survived proper winters in rear wheel drive Lada's succesfully on the finest Russian tyres!

As the saying has it, fail to prepare.......prepare to fail.

Winter has in my jazz boot -
Thick wind proof jacket with hood
Woolly hat, gloves , scarf , thermal fleece blanket , spare walking socks  waterproof walking boots , folding snow shovel , pack of mars bars , pack of bottles of water , small bag of sand , torch and hand warmer flashing beacon. Flask of hot soup or coffee packet of sandwiches and biscuits !!! And then I wouldn’t go out unless I had to !!
I would recommend advising your insurer of any changing to your are thinking of doing just to be on the safe side.

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Adding Factory options to my car - Where to find parts?
« Last post by c.lday44 on December 03, 2023, 07:49:30 PM »
Hi all. I have a fairly basic 2007 Jazz SE. I'd like to add/change some parts to add factory options that my car wasn't specified with originally. I'm using this list and I have a few questions!

How will this affect insurance, if at all? As they're factory options, I don't believe I need to declare them right?

Where can I find parts/does anyone have them? I'd like a factory tailgate spoiler in B528M Sirius Blue (I don't really want to fork out trying to paint it - Having an already painted one would be preferable, but I can't find a car being broken that has the spoiler in the right colour.

I'd like to install the factory detachable towbar. No real reason other than I like towbars, I don't really need it... I'll probably get a small trailer if I do end up with this but I probably won't.

Interiorwise - I like the idea of the centre arm rest with sliding lid storage cubby. I've NEVER seen one on any Jazz and can't find one on autotrader with one fitted from my quick-ish look. Is this a real option, if so, how do I go about it? Is it part of the centre console or a smaller module that can be attached easily?

Leather steering wheel - I should be able to find one on ebay I believe, Was it just an option? IE, not limited to the sport trim level for example.

Bluetooth phone system - is it even worth getting in 2023, is it easy to install/use? I imagine it's just for phone calls. I've never seen it.

I'd quite like these 6 spoke alloys as I prefer the look to the usual 9 spoke. They are a standard Jazz alloy as far as I can tell but not one I ever really see - If anyone can shed any light on if these are a special wheel, option, or facelift/prefacelift dependant (I saw them listed on ebay from a 2003) that would be fantastic. (Picture attached - If I've formatted it right)

I just had a sudden urge to improve the spec of my Jazz if I intend to keep it for a while, I don't really need to but I thought it might be a fun project. I never knew the Jazz could have these things and it's certainly ones I may have specced if I was buying it new in 2007. Alas, I am the 4th owner, and it's first is god knows where. If anyones knows or owned RO57 LXW let me know ;)

Thankyou for any information you may provide me with!

Many thanks, not quite driving me up the wall, just puzzled as to what switch I used.

Short squeals are often the alternator belt as it runs up and gets loaded just after a start, trying to recover the voltage drop due to cranking. Auxiliary drive belts invariably get tighter as the whole system gets hot so you often find squeal will reduce or disappear as the engine warms up, but any sign of belt squeal should be addressed ASAP to minimise belt wear as it slips.
