Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Vibration when accelerating between 60-70km/h

another update...
I tried driving around in tight circles at slow speeds to see if I noticed or heard anything... I didn't in either direction, so I presume it's not the CV joints??

I lifted the front end of the car on to jack stands (both corners) and tried to look around for play in suspensions or axles.  I didn't notice any play in the axle on the shorter side.  On the other, longer, side, (right side) there wasn't anything too obvious either.  However, there may have been a very slight amount of play when I tried to rotate the axle while holding it near that rubber damper? thing that is toward the center of the axle.
(you can see the "rubber damper" I'm talking about in the photos of the axle here:  https://www.velocitystage.com/product/honda-jazz-fit-city-gd1-gd3-drive-shaft-japan/ )

Personally, I don't think Boris is anymore of a Brexiteer than Jim Sh is. Boris weighed up his options and decided that joining the Leave campaign was his best chance of becoming PM. Boris is in this for Boris, nothing else.

100% correct. Hes a snake.

Like so many politicians and followers of fashion, they crave the limelight and spend their lives following the spotlight around the stage. The real question is, who operates the spotlight? Certainly not politicians who are, in the main, puppets. May was a perfect example, a remainer at heart and a desk jockey by nature, acting under instructions, torn between loyalty and ambition, with perhaps an unfulfilled and unrequited commitment to the people of the country. Amid tears, I sense bitterness and that is not a good thing. Ironic when you consider what this country has endured for three years. 'Oh what a tangled web we weave...'

I had them both from new. Did around 15,000 miles a year in them, a lot on motorway. The 3rd gen one was an EX, very lovely, well specced and comfortable. Highly recommended.

Boris is in this for Boris, nothing else. I think Dominic Raab would be a better choice for the Brexiteer Tory membership.

I agree about Boris, he's in it for himself.

I think Boris is an idiot, but he's popular with the general public for some reason, and ripe material for the popularity contest that passes for a general election these days. I just can't see the Conservatives going for Raab, unless they can give him a personality transplant.

Just to add, will they looking for an real, actual, permanent leader, or just another temp? Brexit still has a great deal of potential to be a poisoned chalice.

Agreed. Bojo will be used by the party for populist purposes and will be just another caretaker PM as soon May gives him the broom, assuming she does, of course. I see Jacob Rees-Mogg as a future influence or leader. If they have any sense they will give him a proper job in the cabinet. He is in self imposed exile at the moment and is perhaps regarded as 'persona non grata' after his attempted coup of no confidence in the autumn of last year, albeit a gentle coup by his loyalist party standards. Either way, he is smart enough to lie low and bide his time. One of the few politicians I trust.

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Brake pad wear
« Last post by Dawud Beale on May 24, 2019, 11:03:54 PM »
My car suddenly started making a Thunder and lightning sound when I was driving.

I was terrified. But apparently it's just brake pads wear out and metal rubbing against other metal.

I don't know anything about brakes at the moment so please run me through it from the beginning.

Where are the brake pads located and how do i inspect them to see how much is left? Can anyone provide photos?

Are there early warning signs of brake pad wear? Like a noise? Can anyone link to a video or sound recording?

How much does it cost to replace? Pads, disc, callipers etc?

What are the different stages of wear? If I hear the thunder and lightning sound have I likely damaged the disc and callipers too? I drove like it for half an hour.

Has anyone else experienced this noise?

Anyone have any good diagrams to illustrate how the brake system works so I can understand the different parts etc?

Any other useful info for a beginner?

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Coil Pack Replacements

The rear spark coils get a harder time than the front because the rear plugs don't get changed and the electrode gap gets bigger, this causes the coils to have to generate a higher voltage to jump the gap, which stresses the electrical insulation, the other thing is the exhaust manifold is at the rear making lots of heat.

The front plugs normally get changed regularly and run cooler anyway.

The way the coils work is that there are two coils of copper wire around a metal core, the primary ( 12 volt side ) takes about 5 amps,  when the voltage is applied to primary it charges up the metal core with magnetic energy, if you then cut off the power ( this is what the mechanical can operated points used to do in the old system before higher voltage transistors were developed )  and don't give the magnetic energy a path to discharge the energy it will discharge through the secondary ( high voltage side ) and as the magnetic field collapses it will force the voltage to rise until it is high enough to spark over the plug gap,  but as the plugs get older and gap wears ( spark erodes metal off the plug electrodes ) the 'spark over' voltage needs to be higher and higher to spark over the gap, this causes electrical insulation to fail. 

You can leave the 12 volts on the coil for ever and you won't get a spark ( but the coil will get hot ), the spark happens when you remove the 12 volts by ' open circuiting' the primary coil, then the magnetic field collapses and generates voltage that looks for a way to escape / discharge, the bigger the gap the higher the voltage has to get.

 There is data that gives the wear rate of plug gap per 1000 miles, Iridium is much harder than the normal spark plug electrodes and the sparks do not erode it anywhere near as fast.

No - having had both a manual and an auto Jazz, the automatic brake pedal is much wider than the manual one.

Two thirds of Britons think the country is in a state of crisis - and a majority want an immediate general election when a new prime minister is in place, according to a Sky Data poll.

Theresa May's resignation fired the starting gun for the contest to become the next leader of the Conservative Party - and prime minister.

When a new PM is in office, some 54% think there should be an immediate general election. Some 36% think there should not, with 11% unsure.
