Yes, the protocol for describing sides in a vehicle always take the reference from the driver.

Not be the first time someone got that mixed up!

Yes, the protocol for describing sides in a vehicle always take the reference from the driver. Hence right and left. Offside and nearside depends on whether a vehicle is right or left hand drive (again using the right and left protocol).

The code reader reads  the front right sensor as the drivers side when looking from the inside of the car looking out. Is it possible that you have identified the right hand sensor when looking at it from the front of the car ? This would make left hand sensor in front of the passengers seat.

cannot find any info as to when air filter due to be changed, report says 25000 but dealer has said that these sheets are for all models so not very accurate, they have said 35000, can anyone confirm this.

The mk2 is 37,500 and 75,000 miles for air filter, I would think the mk3 would be the same. I know that because when we bought our mk2, it was supposed to have had it's 50K service, but had a dirty air filter. zzaj helpfully pointed me to a service checksheet that had been attached to another post by another member (John Ratsey I think?).


I also asked them what was reported on brake wear, they are still saying 65% fronts and 70% rear, car was a year old when bought it so obviously do not know what treatment the brakes had before me, strange rears are below the fronts ??

As I said above, the front pads start off around 50% thicker than the fronts, so it's not unusual to see the rear pads with less material left. 65% and 70% is more or less the same, it will only be a visual guesstimate after all - unless thay actually remove the pads, put a caliper on them and work it out.

I wouldn't be changing the pads until they were below 2mm anyway. 4 & 5mm might last you several years if you are not heavy on the brakes. Bear in mind that there is also an audible warning device fitted to the pads to stop you wearing them down to the backing plates. If they start squealing, brake pads needed!

Having owned both, Mk2 for me as well.

I would like mk2 with the mk1 twin spark engine ( which fits in better with Jazz as an urban car ) and boot space, for some reason on subsequent models the boot keeps shrinking......

I am with Sparky Paul on the idsi twin spark engine being a lot easier to drive around town as it is much more tractable than the vtec.  As for steering the mk1 was an early iteration of EPS and was underpowered and drew <40 amps, the mk2 steering draws 60 amps IIRC...  so you need to keep a decent battery on mk2..  and the roller blind boot cover on mk1 much better than the one on mk2.

how did you know cvt oil had not been changed
Although I have a pre-paid 5-year service plan, my 2nd year service at 20,000 itemised all the expenditure, including 45.74 (+VAT) for 4 litres of CVT fluid.  Mind you, that doesn't prove that it was changed!  The total notional bill was 288.65, and as I paid only 550 for the 5-year plan, the apparent profit margins are considerable.  The discs and pads were coded green, as opposed to amber or red.

I'd still like to rule out a logged fault that is stuck, for some reason, by clearing the SRS memory with HDS. Also, as I mentioned earlier, and Jocko too, that as unlikely as it seems, there is the small possibility that the replacement ECU is also faulty.

As one famous sleuth said, "when you have excluded the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.  ;)

The trouble with HS2 is that teh project costs were deliberatley underestimated at the start - By Half..  Otherwise it would not have been started.

And the latest report has the Chairman of the reviewing Group saying one thing - he's in favour. And teh Deputy Chairman says teh opposite - he is a sceptic..

On that basis, I would say they are all liars, it will oevrrun even more. And no more money should be spent. Period..

It's bad though isn't it. I know, over the years, various secret shopper type tests from Which show something like 75% of garages don't do the service properly. They do seem to change the oil though so that's something. I'd love to find a good independent once I'm out of warranty.
