The CVT dipstick is not obvious to see as is the engine oil dipstick. It is low down almost below the battery and awkward to get at especially if you have big hands.

Just watched BBC News this evening, I see there was no mention whatsoever of Theresa May being empty-chaired at the meeting of Greta Thunberg with party leaders in the UK.

According to the Haynes manual the CVT gearbox has a dipstick. Shows it in front of the battery/air filter. That area.



Hi Jocko I have just had a good look around and I am not able to see anything resembling a dipstick for CVT in that location but thanks anyway.

Hi Steve,
I too have just bought a 2011 Jazz EX CVT and am very pleased with it so far.
Just spent a couple of  hours this afternoon cleaning up the engine bay as so much corrosion evident of the alloy and zinc plated parts and rust on some of the painted components, particularly the off side engine mount. This car has had one lady owner from new and most recently serviced by a non Honda garage. I don't think the oily rag has been over it ever but it has now and looks better for it. There are so many zinc plated clips, pipes etc under the bonnet that these cars can look very scruffy after only a few winters.
Hope yours looks better than mine did.
Cheers,
Richard.

Hi all, after a period of dry weather, everything is dry again and I cannot recreate water ingress - I've tried washing it, pouring water over it etc but still it remains dry. Whether or not I've "accidentally" fixed by trying the things I've done so far I'm not so sure but for now I've put the carpet and trim back and will see how it goes. Thanks to everyone who replied/commented, all very much appreciated  :)

Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Cvt gearbox oil check
« Last post by Roddy0000 on Today at 03:48:13 PM »
Hi
I have a CVT auto box and wanted to check oil level as had mk3 nearly a year, the manual says that it can only be done by a dealer, just wondering why that is, my mk2 had a dipstick??
If that is the case are we able to take car into the dealer to get them to check it other than service times and if so, will they charge ??
Thanks.

Gave up on the old battery. Started off well but wouldn't charge beyond 9.2v.

Yuasa Silver's doing the car a 'power' of good though  :)

Elon Musk has just announced that a new microchip developed jointly with Samsung should see driverless taxis operating in some US cities by 2020.

Good Ole Elon certainly knows how to keep investors happy with regular doses of Hype..... he is like Thomas Edison ( who was a salesman not an engineer,  and he made loads of money out of filching other peoples ideas and marketing them before they did).

Well would you Adam and Eve it?

Swapped batteries and all OK but thought I'd whack the charger on the old one just out of curiosity - and out of the car the blessed thing is charging!

To be fair I think it's on borrowed time anyway. It's a Halfords 3yr warranted thing that was in the car when we got it - 3.5yrs ago.

Let the battery stand with no load and the battery voltage can recover enough to allow the charger to detect if it is connected the right way ( may only need 6 volts, not the full 12 ) - but if if it is out of guarantee period ( and a Halfords 3 year battery is about as basic as it gets ) you are better off replacing it anyway,  I always write the date battery was fitted on the label on top of the battery using a permanent marker pen,  if there is  no room I stick an extra little label on... it helps me but may also help someone else who buys the car...
