The Mk 1 Jazz doesn't have a liner under the rear wheel arch.

Interesting, mine does - or does it not cover the entire wheel arch, is that what you mean?

I had crystal set as well, amazing bit of kit really.  Thermionic valves still have their uses though - they do not get destroyed like a transistor does by magnetic pulse from a nuclear explosion or a solar eruption. Also some of the finest hi-fi is available with valves,

But they are not considered 'efficient' enough (they need heaters and stuff) by todays greenies.   I had a hybrid Phillips transistor / valve radio (valve detection stage with transistor output) given to me when I was at college and sorted it out and fitted it to my car, the sound was great - and I didn't need the heater on when radio was on LOL.

Our DAB in UK was the worst of all worlds,  others started later with DAB+,  which we can get now from some stations,  but not all.

I worked on the inertial navigation system for the ELDO rocket system and we used one of the first digital voltmeters. Back then it cost the same as an E-Type Jag. Now you get a DVM for £8.99.

New honda jazz 1.5 sport cvt what a great car i do like it in s mode where power comes in higher up the rev range but leaves a few people puzzled that you are so quick in a jazz but can also drive around town in d mode for better economy and the boot size with rear seats folded is amazing and also the magic seats as well a very good all rounder and reliable as well.

Carrying on from my previous reply.
We were amazed that, on a Semiconductor course, we were shown a domestic radio, the size of a housebrick and a portable television with a 6" screen!! All this being the future of domestic electronics at that time,
As a young lad only a few years previously I had been playing around with a crystal set, how the electronics industry has move on in my lifetime, is absolutely amazing, Mobile phones, GPS etc, what's next??

Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: Auto Idle Stop - noise on coming to a stop.

If you are using the brake pedal gently to control the start stop system the CVT will be pushing against the brakes, this very low speed creep against the brakes may cause a split second noise from the brakes as the car stops. You may be able to produce the noise by very slowly easing off the brakes in drive, this may cause the noise as the car starts to move if it is the brakes.

Another thought, if it is the brakes it may be brake temperature dependent. I have just been sent on a short errand by Mrs Sky, I know my brakes were warm and I had no sound from them. I think I have heard this brief creaking or groaning sound when my brakes have been cold.

I have just been out with stone cold brakes, there was a brief noise on the first stop but none after the first stop.
