Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - 2020 / Re: Changing from Inflation Kit to space saver tyre
« Last post by John A on February 18, 2020, 02:04:44 PM »
I went for 3 years in my Jazz without getting a puncture and without a spare wheel but I was anxious about not having one.

So when I bought my HR-V, I ordered one with the car.  After a few weeks I got a puncture and used the space saver to get me to the garage.  They fixed the puncture and sent me on my way.  The repairer commented that if I had used the 'gunk' then he would not have been able to repair it and I would have been faced with the cost of a new tyre to replace one that had done less that 1,000 miles.  What a good decision that turned out to be.

Gunk is deadly to those integral ( direct ) TPMS sensors as well...... but not the ABS version  :)

Can u please explain further. Ty

One system measures the actual tyre pressure - direct, the other detects changes in wheel speed relative to its opposite one that might be due to a tyre deflation.

Worth while checking on the web for original & new wheels taking into account offset tyre sizes etc, I still use this page.

There are others around
I would take the new wheels to an experiance tyre shop to inspect before fitting

Probably the parrot that upset them. My camera is to the left of the mirror and there has never been an issue for the 3 MOTs other than them unplugging it so it was not recording during the MOT test.

Ditto, I just take the camera off the mount and throw it in the glovebox before taking the car for MOT, the mount is never mentioned.

Top right hand corner of the Jazz windscreen is a 'your next service is due... blah blah' sticker put there by the dealer.

Have they said it's in your line of sight?
They are well within their right to remove stuff from the windscreen in order to make sure their is no damage present.
Damage outside of the drivers field of vision can still be advised or failed if the MOT tester deems that the screen has damage compromising is strength.
It is a but of a silly advisory though,
If the tester has had to remove items and their is no damage then why mention it.
It's not uncommon though.

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Windscreen views?

Hi,
Car passed its mot ok but there was a note saying that items removed from windscreen prior to test. One was a toy parrot about 3 inches long stuck at the top right of the screen and would have been hidden by a lowered sun visor, the other was the dashcam mounted high up to the left of the rear view mirror. I did say to the garage you would have to be deformed to have that in your line of sight. As wogan used to say " is it me ?"
