Just out of interest, how much would the 2 or 2.1 bar figures have to vary, to trigger an alert?

Just one data point but the last genuine warning I had it was about 6 psi down.

At least the party in power is voted for by general public, who they choose as leader is down to party members

The 'party in power' is currently running a minority administration.


I don't know which arcane system the EU uses, but I don't recall we had any say in choosing Junckers, as David Cameron knew what a disaster he would be and couldn't stop it.   It seems that Junckers chose his successor Martin Selmayr.

I don't know where you get the idea that Junckers chooses his successor, or indeed that Selmayr is his successor. As far as I can see, the EPP lead candidate for president is right winger Martin Weber.

That does not mean Weber will be Junckers' successor as President, he is only the EPP grouping's lead candidate. Whether he is actually appointed as President depends the EPP grouping acheiving a plurality of votes in the european elections, and then the subsequent vote of the EU council and the vote of all of the publicly elected MEPs.

The european party groupings choose their candidates for president prior to the elections, and the final candidate for president is chosen from the political grouping which has the plurality of votes in the elections. Juncker was selected by the EPP's as their candidate for the post prior to the 2014 elections, and subsequently confirmed as president by the EU Council and the final vote by MEPs.

For all its faults, it looks far more democratic than this fiasco.

Just watched Dominic Raab on "The Andrew Marr Show" and acquitted himself very well.

From starting driving, 40 plus years ago, I have checked my tyre pressures, on a monthly basis, or thereabouts.

My Jazz is no different, and I find that I put in 2 or 3 psi, some of which is lost in the connection / disconnection.

I do not re calibrate, and indeed, it was 6 months, before I discovered on this forum, that it should be done!

So far....etc. etc.

Just out of interest, how much would the 2 or 2.1 bar figures have to vary, to trigger an alert?

Remember that Gordon Brown became PM without even so much as a formal leadership election within Labour; his only challenger - John McDonnell - failed to get enough nominations to even get on the ballot paper.

All the threads are RH threads, looking on the top of bolt or spark plug they loosen anti-clockwise.  Be careful if the plugs have been in for a long time as they can be very tight, do not force them too much as the steel wall of plug is fairly thin and they can snap off,  if they are tight just undo them as much as you can and put some plusgas ( or any proper penetrating oil, but not standard WD40,  I think WD40 may make a pen oil as part of their range though )  down the thread and leave to soak, and then turn a bit forward and a bit back till thread starts to free up.   I always get engine warm before removing plugs as the alloy head expands faster than the steel of the plug thread and eases the pressure on the thread a bit.

The only place you may find left Hand threads on vehicles is on the axles or transmission.   But the nuts or bolt head should be marked.

There are 8 plugs in total. 4 along the back of the engine and 4 along the front. NKG BKR6E-11 spark plugs. 16 mm socket, as far as I am aware.
Ok that's great, do you happen to know which was they turn? The cover that protects the front plugs has 2 bults on and instead of turning left to undo they turn right? Is it the same for the plugs?

Thanks

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: Rear shock absorber advice
« Last post by culzean on Today at 09:59:39 AM »
Changing both gives you peace of mind, however, shock absorbers either work or they don't, the one that isn't leaking  may last the life of the vehicle or it may pack up next week (this is the same with any replacement you put on). in days gone by it was common place to replace them in pairs because they only lasted 3 or 4 years anyway, nowadays they can last 20 years and still work fine, this is why they are happy to replace a single one nowadays. Personal choice, I'd just get the faulty one done and see how it goes, you can always replace the other one later if need be.

+1

shocks either work or they don't - but sometimes they work but just make a 'clunk' noise when piston rod is changing direction and piston is loose - only car I have ever replaced one on was a Fiat ( Fix It Again Tomorrow ) but then again that was the least expensive part we had to replace - and car was not that old either.

A political party utterly obsessed with the idea that EU leaders are unelected, will choose a new Prime Miinster that nobody voted for, then refuse to call a subsequent general election... I think that's the very definition of irony.

At least the party in power is voted for by general public, who they choose as leader is down to party members - I don't know which arcane system the EU uses, but I don't recall we had any say in choosing Junckers, as David Cameron knew what a disaster he would be and couldn't stop it.   It seems that Junckers chose his successor Martin Selmayr.   The EU is about as transparent as the Freemasons in UK, dodgy handshakes etc.

Saw a poll the other day that Czech Republic and Poland would definitely leave EU if they had a referendum,  France was close last time as Macron admitted - approval rating of EU in member states has fallen from 48% a few years ago down to around 35% - the writing is on the wall for EU as more and more of the dirty dealing and corruption is picked up by its 'citizens' LOL
