Years ago one ploy was to steal the locking fuel flap. They would take this and find a key that fitted, then go back for the car as the same key fitted fuel flap, doors and ignition.

One of the night engineers at a London bus garage had a Cortina MK3 flap stolen.

Knowing what was coming he wired one of those inside commercial red fire alarms under the dash. Sure enough, one night, the alarm went off and the thief was found close by holding his ears.

Anybody know of an inexpensive scan tool that will do this.

Cheers ian

I just want to add that a rigid vehicle is much more manouverable in reverse.

A couple of years ago I spent a week driving a canal narrow-boat. I realised while bumping side to side across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct that a boat steers from the back, like reversing a car.

At one place where I worked, we had a jobbing plumber who used to come in for wee jobs. This day, my mate and I were in the yard and walking past his Bedford CF van. His Doberman was in the front with the window slightly open. It barked, so my mate went up to the window and barked back. The dog got even more vocal. Once Bill was tired of winding up the dog we continued on our way, only to find the rear doors of the van were open and there stood the dog. Bill was off like a shot.
When I told the plumber the story he said Bill was perfectly safe as the dog would not set foot out of the van. Just don't try getting in it!

All looks pretty normal, no signs of damage.

I still advise getting your hose pipe out soak the passenger and driver's door and windscreen in turn and then see if it gets wet inside.

It's most likely a badly sealed windscreen.

Also worth checking the pollen filter behind the glovebox in case that is wet.

Here is a guide

Depends what you are used to doesn't it.

The Jazz is a small car, it's never going to be that refined.

The OP has a Civic, I suggest he sticks with one or a similar sized car.

For what it is, a runabout, it is very good and reliable.

Must haves:
A spare wheel
Heated seats
Upright driving position
Parking sensors
Rear view camera

The common theme here is these all are great for my bad back.

Can do without:
Sat Nav
Rattles and squeaks
The colour grey
Auto anything

Looks like my next car might be a Dacia  ;D

Which sort of defeats the convenience and speed advantages of keyless.

It seems the scrotes are attracted to German and Range Rovers.

Those of us with the lowly Jazz and the disable key buttons press should be safer.

I did see once a sticker on a van saying “THIS VEHICLE  IS PROTECTED BY A DOBERMAN WITH AIDS”

I’m sure the intending perpetrators would perhaps not risk it incase there  maybe such a creature within.

Or perhaps the Warning  PLEASE BE AWARE the driver of this vehicle is suffering from LONG COVID.

8 days on (with most days being rainy) the big puddle in driver's footwell has not reoccurred, touchwood.
Today being dry and sunny, I did a few more checks.
Please see attached photos of the upper engine bay on driver's side. This is where the screen washer pipe goes to the trim under windscreen.
There appears to be a badly sealed seam with a dirty water gunged area coming down  from near it. I cleaned the area and have applied a generous bead of silicon sealant all around it. I'll see if this has any effect.
I checked the bottom of the drivers door and there were no wet water trails on the inner door seal footplate area.
The lower bottom right hand side of the floorpan next to the front door pillar is still
damp. I am going to get my wet/dry vac to it tomorrow to try and get out some of the remaining water that accumulated in the underfelt last week, so I can see if the leak is still occuring.
So still trial and error for now.
The only other thing I did was to stick a temporary strip of vinyl tape between windscreen and the black plastic trim beneath it.
Looking on the web, leaks of this type seem to effect many makes of cars!
