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 their is always a first time  :o

DIY Guides / Re: 1.4 i-DSI 2006 headlight adjuster

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.

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Revs hunting after replacing egr valve?

sounds like it could be a slight air leak due to reuse of old gasket, so replace with new one and see if that works

yea I did search youtube and found lotsa videos on door removal, head unit removal, etc, but none specific to this part. My only fear is that I try to pry it open where I'm not supposed to and snap a bracket or something.

If you search YouTube for "Honda fit dashboard trim removal" there are lots of videos, the Americans seem to enjoy taking their cars apart. I did not have time to look for a specific video but I expect there is one there.

Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / How to remove trim below glove box?
« Last post by Nudgedoink on Today at 04:21:03 AM »
I'm  planning on vinyl wrapping a piece of trim (the plastic panel under the glove box) but I have no idea how to remove it. Anyone has any tips? Should I just pry it out or are there screws?

Thanks!

Last week during driving it was jumping in RPM again and is now also showing the P1890 shift control system fault, and then going into safe mode while driving (flashing D). Now I really expect to be changing the gearbox. I will keep updating in case anyone runs into the same problems in the future.

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Revs hunting after replacing egr valve?
« Last post by Mumscar on December 09, 2018, 08:04:18 PM »
Hi, With the help of YouTube I changed the alternator on my Mums Honda jazz auto and to get it off I had to remove the fixture above it that was bolted to the engine block, which I think is the egr? Alternator now fine but revs are hunting? I just reconnected egr using old gasket.
Thanks for any advice?
