Last fill about 51MPG.

But I was mostly moving furniture with my wife.

Great little car for this kind of stuff.

Two months ago, at a service, I asked the Honda dealer to fix a windscreen washer jet. It didn't.  At yesterday's MOT I again asked the dealer to fix it.  When I collected the car, the dealer said that I need a new jet.  (The car still passed the MOT.)  It would cost 69 (including labour).  They would have to order the part.  I would need to take a day off work.
 
I see that Halfords sell a washer jet and you can also buy them online.  I could buy one and give it a try.
However,on the Jazz washer jets are recessed into a hole in plastic below the windscreen.  One from Halfords or online would probably not fit in the hole and I have no idea how you would get the existing one out and a new one in.

Has anyone any ideas?  Thanks.

I changed the similar ones to Jazz on my Civic to Halfords ones.  The original Honda 'full width spray ones' that were fitted into the scuttle were a bit pants as they used far too much liquid and I was forever topping reservoir up and they were too low and a lot of the spray hit the wiper arms if they were parked (and they normally are  when you spray screen before turning wipers on so that wipers don't get a dirty dry screen to rub against).

The ones I fitted had 'twin jet' in each one and work fine,  it meant drilling a 5 or 6mm hole through plastic and re-routing pipes very slightly under the scuttle, so if you don't want to do that  you may be better to stick with OEM ones).

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Noise from gearbox

Regular oil changes are a great idea, but unless you are on a forum like this the average Jazz owner has no idea there is a problem with early model gearboxes and will feel safe going by the book. Until I joined Clubjazz I had no idea there was a problem, and after 90K miles any damage was done. In fact, by the first normal gearbox oil change at 72K/six years the damage was probably already catastrophic.
Personally I don't believe swarf was the problem, as it is always input shaft bearing that fails. I would have thought swarf would affect the entire gearbox. The rest of my bearings came out like new. I suspect a change of spec for that bearing was probably behind the issue, as manufacturers try to go cheaper and cheaper with components.

You are right it is not swarf. The best information I saw was that is was a bad batch of bearings supplied,  and it affected more than Honda vehicles, as far as I know from my mechanic mate they replaced bearing with same design ( he said it was just slight pitting of the race and to be honest he showed me the bearing from my wifes 80,000 mile Jazz and we spun it and just the faintest whirring noise and it spun very freely) .   Not sure that extra oil changes would do any good as gearbox oil does not get contaminated like engine oil does,  the only thing in my Jazz that did 120,000 miles without problem showing was that I did mainly main road miles and the gearbox has molyslip added - may never know which it was.....

It is like the NASA astronaut said when someone asked him what it was like to be launched into space, he replied "how would you feel sitting on top of a complicated, explosive rocket containing thousands of components knowing that each one had been sourced from the lowest bidder ?"

Great figure. The Jazz is a frugal machine, treated properly.

Yes anyone with a GD1 jazz should change the oil at the very least. The damage i.e. the amount is anybodies guess.

Like I said by the time owners started complaining of the noise it was too late. The oil and swarf had done its damage.
