I thought B was only for travelling down steep hills. Donít know any. My mileage less than 2,400 coming up for first year at end of month.

Iím shocked that your car did so little to protect you whilst the other driver fared so much better in a Skoda Fabia. 

This is the question that should be worrying all owners of Jazz & Crosstar - what went wrong?

After couple of days the shop informed me that the part is discontinued so they cannot deliver. Search continues...  :(
I have now ordered the part from JDM Yamato from Japan. It has different product number because it is intended to JDM GK4 FIT, so let's see if the colour is different. Anyway I got so annoyed to this armrest and storage obstructing the access to rear footwell, that I really wanted to get that low and open console. When the console arrives I must develop a place for seat heater switches.
My Crosstar is going in for a service on Monday so I asked about the recall but they said the last one they did took six hours due to the software download taking so long. You'd have thought they could hold a copy locally rather than have to download it from Honda for each car, but I don't think garages are particularly tech-savvy when it comes to this area of expertise? Anyway I'll have to book it in for a separate appointment.
And then fit a protective mesh shield.
Good to learn how you solved this matter, those parts from China are  best avoided.
The garage I took the car to couldn't find a leak after adding UV dye to the re-gas.  Neither could I BUT unless you have good access to the condensor, you can't be sure.  And for that you really need to remove the front bumper.

When I looked at the condensor I found loads of tiny rocks embedded in it and this section of damage.  I thought it would be worth swapping the condensor out as they are fairly cheap and it's not in great shape.  Watch this space...


I bought an OBD2 code reader and it gave me a P0135 code which refers to a heating element issue of the oxygen sensor (pre Cat).

Bought a replacement 'Kavo' brand from Autodoc but the plug was nothing like the original (not even close).  Did think about de-pinning and using the old connector but the part did not seem correct at all.  I think it's a very poor cheap chinese copy.  Lesson learned!  Returning goods to Autodic in Germany was a night mare because the parcel got stuck in customs!

In the end I bought the correct Denso part and the car has worked perfectly ever since.  it's not a hard job to replace the pre Cat sensor with a breaker bar and an O2 socket. 

Thanks to everyone who posted.

We have both had to change insurer this year due to premium hikes of 25-30% from last year, from QMH and esure.

OH got her Jazz back down to around £160 with Carole Nash, but with a reduced mileage of 8,000 now both kids will be at Uni. My Vauxhall Insignia estate came in at £168 with Hastings, 12,000 miles. We are in a low risk postcode.

Just seen this too. In all my many decades of driving, I've had a few very close shaves with cars on the wrong side of the road, but nothing like this. Shocking.

I hope you can both make a full recovery.
