Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: Jazz discs and pads
« Last post by desthemoaner on July 14, 2018, 09:48:11 AM »
I suppose I could have drilled the screws out as a last resort, but the main barrier to success was not being sure just how hard I could hit the tools without doing some damage. I guess that kind of assessment comes with experience, and  its never been necessary for me when doing discs and pads on previous cars to employ anything more than moderate force.

Of course, there are times when brute force doesn't cut the mustard. I once watched that same mobile mechanic using a lump hammer to bash seven bells out of a rear brake drum which had seized solid on a Mk1 Focus, and even he couldn't shift it with the kind of equipment he was able to carry in his van.

I use thin soled footwear when driving in order to get more feedback from the pedals as these days the pedals are largely  a means to signal to the car whether to go faster or slower rather than directly controlling the car.

Baidu, in China, has announced it has started mass production of self driving buses. These buses will be Level 4, which means they will be programmed for particular routes. As the blurb says, "last-mile" drop-offs within enclosed areas, such as airports and tourist sites.
As an ex-bus driver I often felt I was on autopilot, after a 10 hour shift driving the same urban route!

Most car factories had AV delivery vehicles running around the factory in the early 1980's - they followed a wire buried in the floor.  They were able to stop at fixed points or when requested, were reliable, never went off track and quiet,  maybe we need to bury wires in public roads for AV buses to follow.

All done, but embarrassingly, not by me.

I got all my tools out, laid them down by the car, took the wheel off and could I Hell remove the disc securing screws. I tried the impact driver but they refused to budge. Then I attacked them with a punch, but still couldn't shift them at all. Worse still, I left the heads of the screws in a pretty sorry state after bashing away at them for 15 minutes. And after all this build up I was SO looking forward to doing the job.

Anyhow, my next move was to call out a mobile mechanic whom I've used for years and ask him to have a crack.  He removed the wheel, put the business end of a Philips screwdriver in the head of the disc screw, hit it a few times with a hammer and lo and behold, out it came, along with its neighbour. Same result on the other wheel. Red faced, I walked away and left him to it.   :-[

Cost me a few quid, but the main casualty was my pride. Still, if I keep the car long enough I know the job will be a cinch next time round.

I had a problem as well, but then I used impact driver to tighten the screw before reversing it to slacken it,  that is pretty much what your mechanic did. I only hand tighten the screws but countersink screws are notorious for locking themselves in due to large contact area of countersink. Now I put copper grease under head and on the thread. The screws are only there to stop disc falling off when caliper is removed, otherwise wheel nut hold the disc on.

I had the same issue with my previous mk3 it was much more sensitive than my previous car I had it for 2 years and never got used to it. It was one of the main reasons for switching to a cvt
