Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: Different Lights?
« Last post by Sibhorne on Today at 01:27:31 PM »
So can someone tell me if you can replace the red rear lights with the white version... for some reason the white are much more plentiful and cheaper?

My Jazz is pearl white so I quite fancy white rear lights and need to replace driver side anyway.

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: Engine noise at 2000rpm

Hi mate have you heard anything about the noise. My jazz is exactly the same. I thought it was pinking at first but now suspect gearbox or clutch. I know you posted awhile a go but I have just come across it. Cheers.

Those are the right ones for the later car - slightly offset. Early droplinks have the joints roughly at right angles.

I fitted a cheap Borg & Beck (same as Firstline factor parts) a while ago, seems to be holding up okay.

Sounds like for other folks changing their drop links they need to pay attention to the various configurations.

The drop link I ordered suggested it's a 2004 model onwards but Jocko has a 2006 and uses the offset variety.

This is the first time I've seen such a difference for essentially the same car, perhaps I've just been lucky in the past?

I have done further reading up on Scottish Power, and their plans are to use the money from the sale to invest in Tidal,Solar and Wind. Tidal is producing a lot of energy, particularly in the North of Scotland, but requires big investment for commercial production. In the interim they will buy from the facilities they have sold (obviously contracted in the sell out deal).
Regarding battery storage, all the BEVs whose batteries wear out, will provide masses of future grid storage. Renault are already big into that. And as all EV decriers keep telling us, the batteries only last a couple of years, in cars!

comment from a recent study on renewables...

The SNP like to proclaim their energy independence, and point to the jobs created and income generated for the country. In reality, these are hollow claims.

Very few permanent jobs result from wind power, and most of the money goes to rich landowners and the banks and (mostly foreign owned) who finance and operate the wind farms.

Called TMS but they want 22~26 for a single drop link.

Was looking at Rock Auto in the USA (used to live there) they're only 6 ish...

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: What servicing is due at 40K
« Last post by peteo48 on Today at 10:23:54 AM »
In the above situation - 1500 miles per annum - I think I'd still want an oil change particularly if the mileage had consisted of lots of short journeys.

Going back a bit, I used a Honda dealership in Ashton Under Lyne a few years ago. Family firm now, sadly, no more. They would, on low mileage vehicles, do 2 short services consecutively on used cars to lower costs. On new warranty considerations prevented this.

I thought this was a practical approach - the car still got an oil and filter change but not all the other jobs like air filters and the like. I think a lot of long term owners will follow a similar regime if the car is long out of warranty.

The plan is to invest in mass electricity storage.. but a detailed analysis shows that will not be economic - thinks calm days in winter.. Ditto solar energy.. Some form of standby generation available within a few hours will always be needed.

Large scale storage using lithium is likely to have a short lifespan due battery constraints.  Vanadium batteries are in their infancy but have much longer lifespans and are starting to become available commercially.

A blonde woman was speeding down the road in her little red sports car and was pulled over by a female police officer, who was also a blonde.

The officer asked to see the lady's driver's license. She dug through her purse and was getting progressively more agitated.

"What does it look like?" she finally asked.

The policewoman replied, "It's square and it has your picture on it."

The driver finally found a mirror in her purse, looked at it and handed it to the policewoman. "Here it is," she said.

The officer looked at the mirror, then handed it back saying, "Okay, you can go. I didn't realize you were a cop."
