Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: What servicing is due at 40K

They will say your shocks are leaking and need replacing...I then check them myself and there were no leaks!

My neighbor did a service last month on her Jazz. She had only covered 1500 miles in 12 MTHS. If I was the dealer, I would have said let's do the MOT and leave the service till next year or unless she insisted...but guessed what, they charged her 165! Not professional.

A report, today, by the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy committee says that the government plans for zero emission cars and vans, planned for 2040, should be brought forward to 2032.
For zero to actually mean zero then the electricity for charging the batteries needs to be generated without producing emissions. Have the politicians considered this minor detail? There's also the energy expended in moving a big lump of battery along the roads. Is this efficient?

Nonetheless, I would personally bring forward the deadline for new petrol or diesel only vehicles to more like 2025. Hybrid technology to keep the engine operating efficiently and cleanly (Which? reports that the Kia Niro hybrid doesn't meet its claimed emissions) and recovers energy when decelerating.

I'll give them a shout in the morning I guess.
Tell them it is the 8967/8 part. Their computer may throw up the other numbers (that's what happened with me). Luckily I was working with them at the time so I just changed them.
Cost me 23.45 for the pair.

On eBay right now and it appears that the "2 x FOR HONDA JAZZ II MK2 04-2008 FRONT PAIR STABILISER ANTI ROLL BAR DROP LINKS" are not square but slightly offset?

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-x-FOR-HONDA-JAZZ-II-MK2-04-2008-FRONT-PAIR-STABILISER-ANTI-ROLL-BAR-DROP-LINKS/291550647341?fits=Car+Make%3AHonda%7CModel%3AJazz%7CCars+Year%3A2007&hash=item43e1c5d42d:g:KVMAAOSwUqBbRcOy

Those are the right ones for the later car - slightly offset. Early droplinks have the joints roughly at right angles.

I fitted a cheap Borg & Beck (same as Firstline factor parts) a while ago, seems to be holding up okay.

It would seem that the best way to buy drop links is to have a check on your can and see what is fitted, before buying anything.
Both of mine are now changed, so hopefully they will see me out!

Interesting video here on e-bikes.


Some e-bikes can do almost 100 miles on a charge, though I'd rather be waterboarded than sit on a bike for 100 miles!

I will often turn left instead of a difficult right and use an island to get back to where I was heading. Will also turn left and take next right side road and a U-turn back onto main road and left again.

Been looking at e-bikes, seem to have the same problem as e-cars. The range can vary from 10 to 30 miles 'depending on weather and terrain' - at least you can carry a spare battery on an e-bike.
