Thanks for this. It does look like they have many active members who are into tweaking the bits and bobs. I'll get myself registered and post there!

yep, that's my last resort. I hate taking a knife anywhere near plastic parts, but I guess it beats snapping brackets!

Whether he decides to pop back in here or not, sorry to hear he's not been so good, and I hope he's on the mend.

If you do read this Jocko, all the best mate.

So, being a newbie here I am also one of the stronger among you by holding you all up in the age range - yes 77 summers and enjoying life.

This is our first Honda and is wife's car really so local miles together with longer Cornwall trips about 6 times a year.  2015 SE i-Vtec Auto shows averaging 51mpg according the trip liar-meter (not the computer) after 15k miles so happy with that. 

I am fortunate to have my Disco 4 for Caravan Towing and other uses but enjoy driving the Tardis like Jazz when SWMBO gives me permission.

I wrapped a similar piece of trim on an Astra, and did it in location, fit the vinyl push it as far in to the cracks as you an and smooth out, then lightly run a craft knife along the gap, but I guess you know that.

Thanks for reply, yes that seems a good start, I went to mill autos today to get one but they said it is a direct from Honda dealer only. The chap there said the idle control valve is a common issue but I think it is more likely to be something that I have disturbed on the egr.

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: What MPG are you getting from your Mk1 Honda Jazz ?
« Last post by culzean on December 10, 2018, 01:51:29 PM »
Mid to high 30's, which I thought was pretty low as my commute is mostly A roads. Checked tyre pressures and they were all around 10-15 psi which probably explains part of the mpg and weird steering feel.

Gave it a major service last weekend (all filters, oil, sparks, brake fluid) and according to the computer I got 46mpg from this tank. 2007 1.4 se with 129k miles.

How did pressures get that low ? You may well have damaged sidewalls running them at that low pressure as sidewalls can flex way too much.

They wouldn't have got damaged at that PSI in a short space of time. The car was sat for almost a year before I bought it.

If the car hit a pothole with the tyres at that pressure damage is inevitable,  it is surprising how quickly sidewalls can be damaged by heat buildup due to excessive flexing - I guess you have never experience a blowout, well there is always a first time  :o

DIY Guides / Re: 1.4 i-DSI 2006 headlight adjuster
« Last post by culzean on December 10, 2018, 12:54:33 PM »
model - 1.4 I-DSI SE automatic 2006

I bought this car this summer and noticed the nearside (uk) headlight is pointing way too high, its dazzling oncoming drivers. I cant seem to find where the headlight vertical adjustment is located or any diagram online.

any help will be appreciated

There is are a couple of holes ( 1 each side)  in the steel front crossmember that you are looking at when you open the bonnet ( the bonnet catch is in the centre of it, but the holes are in the part that bends round and goes up along the wing of the car above the actual headlight unit ) there are some plastic guides inside the hole and you need a fairly long x-head screwdriver to reach the toothed wheel.

best thing is to face the car towards white garage doors or light coloured wall about 4 foot away,  mark the centre ( or top its up to you ) of the bright spot of the beam with a piece of coloured tape and use this as a guide to tell you if you are screwing the adjuster the correct way,  and how much you have moved the beam down.   You can measure the height of offside beam and try to make the nearside the same.

make sure the electric motor adjustment bit on dashboard is in the '0' position when you do it  ( IIRC it has '0' and 1,2,3 positions) and while you are at it check that the electrical up and down adjustment ( for when the car is loaded with passengers and luggage etc. ) actually works as it should to adjust beam height.
