Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Brake disc splash guard
« Last post by sparky Paul on Today at 12:00:46 AM »
It can be done, but will have to replace the wheel bearings. You will destroy the old bearing when you drift the hub out of the bearing - not only will the races be damaged, but the centre races are split and the bearings tend to disassemble themselves as you knock the hub out.

I've never replaced disk shields, ever. Just cut out the jaggedy bits if they bother you, but it should never cause a problem at MOT time.

I believe it does this because if front wipers are on, then itís wet/rainy and the rear wipers swipe twice to clear the rear screen of any water and allow good visibility

I do not know if it can be disabled but you could turn off front wipers so rear wiper does activate

I do have to say I found the rear wipe good myself

Many thanks

I've only recently noticed, mine does the same.

Not a problem, to me......
Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: Oil Consumption??
« Last post by lexi on January 20, 2018, 10:24:59 PM »
I had to top up my oil again this morning. I topped it up at the beginning of December, and checked it a week or so later (it was fine), but now, less than 700 miles later, it was midway between the marks. It is not leaking out. The car is garaged on a clean floor and there is never a spot of oil. There is no sign of any oil being burnt, and the coolant is clean with no sign of oil there.
I don't know where it is going!

  There is something going on though. A 06 plate with how many miles? and how many oil changes that you know of?
     Maybe a compression test would be an idea. Sometimes light oil burning does not show if you have Cat Converter..............but the oil in the Cat will be damaging it. Just something to be aware of.
    My 10 plate i Shift 1.4 uses no oil in 1 year changes at 6k miles. 5-30 fully synthetic Ford spec Halfords oil. I will start using the good oil now that it is run in at 28k miles   ;D
Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Anti lock break issue?
« Last post by u587162 on January 20, 2018, 09:21:01 PM »
But if the break pedal travels far down on a soft manner once in a while and the ticking sound I get does not stop slow down the car, what else could it be?

My Peugeot 5008 has ABS and I am familiar with how it sounds when ABS kicks in, but either this is some other problem/sound with the jazz or the ABS sounds completely different and soft rather than the wheels locking and unlocking.

I had the CVT fluid replaced about 6 weeks ago (we discussed that in another thread) i.e. gearbox juddering when driving off.  That has 90% improved, but this seems to be coming from the engine area when accelerating and sometimes I get 2 or 3 jolts in rapid succession within a 10 sec period. This happened around the same time I started having the EGR valve problems before I replaced it with the one you sent me.
Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: What MPG are you getting from your Mk1 Honda Jazz ?
« Last post by peteo48 on January 20, 2018, 08:36:18 PM »

larger diameter tyres have more rolling resistance.
Isn't the outer tyre diameter the same but the EX wheels are bigger and shod with lower profile tyres? Do the less flexible shorter sidewalls on the lower profile tryreshave more or less energy loss than the normal tyres? I can't figure out the answer from the explanation in that link.

I also wonder if the extra bells and whistles on the EX add to the weight which worsens the mpg. Are there also any extras which would worsen the aerodynamics?

On the Yaris, from what I can see, there are not that many extra bells and whistles between the Excel and the model one grade down - the Icon. You may get extras like sat nav but they are all on the infotainment type screen anyway. I wonder what would happen if you bought a Yaris with big wheels and changed them to small ones - would you then be able to claim exemption from the London Congestion Charge.

Not that I would ever be in that position but I reckon there would be lots of forms to fill in LOL.

Not sure about this. I usually have my wipers on auto mode. I have to reverse out of my drive more often than not and, if the windscreen is wet, the front wipers give a sweep as does the rear wiper. This doesn't bother me as the rear window is usually damp as well.

It it's dry, nothing happens. Neither front or back wipers operate. It would annoy me if the rear wiper gave a sweep in these circs but it doesn't.

Sorry - not really answering your question but just wonder why it's a problem.

Cheers for that TG Iíve been quoted £170 for a new remote and cut blade by a auto locksmith just felt it sounds a bit of a high cost .

Cutting is quite easy, pairing a remote is also easy, but the car also needs to know the immobiliser chip id in the key.  Some auto locksmiths can enter this into the car, while some others now clone these onto blank chips.  Adding a completely new key needs outside assistance.  Find out the dealer price for this, then an independent man-in-a-van service should be able to do this for much less.  Can't provide any recommendations but you should be able to have this done in most urban areas.
