Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: Brakes overhaul

Sure the copper bits will be good up to 1100 degC for anti-seize on threads etc because that is just below the melting point of copper,  I was more worried about the carrier oil / grease melting out and contaminating braking surfaces.

Copaslip is no-melt molybdenum bentone base, same as some brake greases.

Beware the nondescript brands.
Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Honda Fit GD1 transmission fluid: ATF or HMMF?
« Last post by sparky Paul on August 03, 2020, 07:25:20 PM »
Do all the Honda Fit GD1 have CVT transmissions? If so, why "ATF" is written on the dipstick?

Many regions certainly did get conventional automatic gearboxes in the Fit/Jazz, they are not all CVT. Here in the UK, we only had the manual and CVT, so advice will be limited. It does sound like you may have a conventional auto, if 'ATF' is marked on the dipstick.

You should be able to identify with the following.

The CVT has a fully manual mode with paddles behind the left and right of the steering wheel. Do you have those?

I believe the conventional auto has positions for gear 3 & 2 on the gear selector. Do you have those?

Honda HMMF is definitely for CVT gearbox, ATF for the conventional auto.

Jocko any ideas on how the range calculation works in terms of what it defines as the fuel tank size?

Mine is a manual with the Dual Spark 1.2 i-DSi engine. Pulls from 20 mph in 5th gear as long as you don't try to boot it.

I asked my dealer about the delay in getting the verification code and was told to contact Honda UK. So I did and, after explaining the problem and spending several minutes on hold, was told that it is a known problem which they hope to fix this week.

Once I get the app working on my phone then it's necessary to arrange to visit the dealer to activate the connectivity on the vehicle.

I thought the point was that the back of the front passenger seat of the Mk3 folds forward onto the squab to make it possible to take long items. Does the Mk 4 not do that?
This was what I had in mind, with the rear seats folded flat and the front seat back folded forwards.
The front seat backs don't tip forwards very far - the new "more comfortable" seats have side support which limits the rotation.

My last full top-up, on the 6th July, was 63.4 mpg on the "Fibometer" and 61.7 mpg on Fuelly (3.8L/100 km).
What the hell!
That's incredible economy, well done, the onboard isn't too far off though, is yours manual or CVT?

A correction my average economy was actually showing 8.2L, I not sure where I got the 7L figure, that's what got me wondering because that's terrible economy.

The projected range left on the tank equals a roughly 6.2L/100km economy which is what I would expect.

Does the range calculation incl the reserve and I'm assuming the 42L fuel tank spec likewise includes the reserve?

As I said earlier take all the safety kit out and put a big spike in centre of steering wheel.... it that doesn't make for more careful driving nothing will  :o
That, unfortunately, provides no protection against the idiot coming in the opposite direction on the wrong side of the road unless you ensure that there's also a big spike in the middle of their steering wheel.

Every vehicle would get the spike, the average speed would drop and the standard of driving would rise.... Modern ultra-safe fugboxes give people a sense that they are totally invulnerable and will not get hurt in a collision, this leads to them driving too fast and taking risks.  People who advocate raising speed limits on motorways always argue that modern cars are safer than older ones, that is true but I doubt the drivers are. Most cars travel at well over 70 on the motorway now anyway,  there is a theory that 10% +2 is used by the Police and it is OK to do 80 anyway, so raising the speed limit to 80 would result in cars traveling at 90 anyway - the consequences of an 80 or 90mph collision are far worse than a 70mph one,  and electric cars range drops massively at over 60mph ( count on 60% of claimed range when doing 70+ on a motorway ),  and ICE cars use a lot more fuel at 80 or 90 than they do at  60 or 70.
