It's been a week since I used the ONR on my car. We've had mostly dry weather but a couple of heavy downpours, one of which I was driving through.

Quite impressed by the way the car is beading. Yes it was reasonably well protected before but it seems even better now. Obviously some of the polymers stay on the paint.

Thanks for the welcome. The new toy arrives in two days (was supposed to be tomorrow, but they asked if they could delay it). Exciting!
Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: Auto Idle Stop - noise on coming to a stop.

One thing you could try if the noise persists is press the brake pedal hard with the car stopped and with the engine running, traffic light waits are ideal. This takes up any slight play in the calipers and pads. I do this occasionally, if you are a light brake user it can adjust the handbrake (if it is off) and improve the brake feel. The brakes will feel a bit sharper after this, it is how the brakes are "adjusted" during a service.

Thanks, to be honest the car has been super reliable it has never been to Honda other the recalls M.D. warranty work I do all my own servicing, as itís a cvt it had the clutch judder at about 6 years old which Honda repaired under warranty. I change the cvt-f oil every 2 years. I have not bothered with the tappets as it runs fine and has 100000 miles on the clock. I just installed a new washer pump for the rear washer. Pattern part ebay £8. Brakes, discs, exhausts. Regular oil and filter replacement is the key to long life for these cars.
This has been a blindingly reliable car. ( fingers crossed)

I am new to this forum but not new to the Jazz as I have owned it for 14 years.
I have just repaired a faulty abs pump. Before you spend out any money you can try this, turn the ignition on but don’t start the car. Place a long screw driver on the pump to hear if it’s working, if not disconnect the battery negative lead. Mark the pumps top edge  so you put it back the correct way.There are 2 4mm Allen bolts hholding the pump on, the bottom one you cannot see and is a bit fiddly to access. Pull the motor straight out be gentle do not twist the housing left to right as you may damage the two pins that power the motor, keep the gasket as it needs to go back on when reinstalling. I used a multi meter( I am an electrician) connect to both pins and set the mult meter to the ohms scale if the reading is about 0.7 ohms the windings are still good and the motor may just be stuck. Tap the base of the housing a few times to see if you can release it, spray with silicon spray  or actf50, just not wd40. I Applied applied 12vots to the pumps pins and it worked fine. On reinstallation my sure you the mark that you made is on the top. The pins look the same but it will only go back the correct way. Be gentle pushing the pump motor in as it’s a bit of a faff to locate those pins correctly. Replace the Allen bolts, reconnect the battery. Start car and hopefully your abs light goes off.

welcome, good informative post,  why did you wait so long ? What else have you fixed on your Jazz ?

I just fitted a new aircon clutch to my Civic - a right PITA of a job, ended up taking windscreen washer reservoir and bumper off but at least I learned a lot (not least was how to remove a Civic bumper).  But at least I knew what was wrong and checked it out with ohmeter first that clutch magnetising coil was FUBAR,  but decided to fit a whole new clutch rather than just the coil (coils was £30,  the whole clutch £55) turned out to be a good move as the clutch plate was in bad condition anyway - fitted a new auxiliary belt at same time (another £50) - found out the Civic has a hydraulic / spring belt tensioner that you have to put a spanner and lever away from belt to slacken.

I like messing with cars, sometimes my language gets bad though.
