Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: 2006 Sport Wing Mirror Case
« Last post by RayS on June 17, 2019, 11:26:19 PM »
I don't know if they are availble separately or not. I had to recently replace mine. The cable is pre-wired from the motor & passess through a small hole at the base of the mirror. The other end of the cable has the connector on it. Which makes it impossiible to separate the caes from the rest of the mirror. Best to keep an eye on ebay. Also, be aware that their are at least two types of connectors. I had to swap mine by cutting them off & soldering the correct connector onto the replacement mirror.

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / 2006 Sport Wing Mirror Case

Anyone know if itís possible to buy just the case for a 2006 Sport passenger side wing mirror (ideally pre-painted in silver)? Itís the version with integrated indicator. Some lovely person cracked it today whilst my wife was parked and at work >:(.

Just watched last night's Top Gear, and thought it was brilliant. The new presenter line up are top notch and gel well together. My wife watches "Take Me Out", and I have always found Paddy McGuinness  a real tonic. Stick him on a car programme and he is superb.

Cox Motor Parts (a trustworthy source) list a full-sized spare https://www.coxmotorparts.co.uk/honda/honda-jazz/2009-2015-jazz/2009-2015-jazz-wheels/ with no mention of a spacesaver wheel.

The spare wheel in my Mk 1 doesn't sit in an expanded poly tray. Just sits on the floor a culzean's does.

Thanks for all your advice.

Had a long test drive yesterday and got it down to much nearer 4k. With 1yr warranty.

Picking it up next Monday after they have done agreed work (brake fluid, valve clearances, transmission fluid, air bag recall).

One final question. Some forum posts elsewhere have said you can get a full 16"spare under a level boot floor. Honda say you can't, and direct you to a spacesaver.

Can any of you give me a definitive answer on this last point. I plan to source from fleabay-unless anyone here has spares?

Thanks again

My wife has a full size spare in her Mk2 Jazz, she uses one of the manky diamond cut 16" 185/ 55 wheels originally supplied with the Si ( I fitted 15" alloys with 175/65 tyres as I was quoted £100 a wheel to get rid of white worm corrosion under clearcoat on diamond cut,  which had gone under pant as well, the wheels have never been kerbed, just stone chip damage etc. and the ride is better with 15" )...  we had to throw out the expanded polystyrene tray with useless gunk in it but kept the electric pump which fits inside the dished side of spare wheel. You will need to get a hold down bolt though, I made one out of 8mm threaded bolt a wing nut and a 3 mm thick piece of sheet metal ( actually I bought all parts from B&Q, the cream square of metal was a large L bracket that I chopped the other leg off and opened up an existing hole to 9mm ).  Have attached PDF with photos to post.

The coloured bags in well of the wheel have electric pump, tools for jack and a telescopic wheel nut wrench and hi vis vests, gloves and a towel. Show that to the man at Honda,  they just want to sell you a £200 space saver wheel.... robbery

the boot floor sits flat and no need for a board across the wheel well either,  perfect.

Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: Quick questions on the MK3

Has anyone managed to pinpoint the cause of the whistling sound at speeds above 50mph? Is it wind noise? Can it be fixed?
Have you checked that the rear windows are fully closed? If one is not fully up into the frame this can lead to a slight wind whistle.

Yep, that's the first thing I did. It's definitely not the windows as I made sure they were all fully closed. But I can still hear it. It's not so bad driving around town, but once you get on the motorway it does get quite annoying. I have to turn up the radio to drown it out.

Thinking about it I had an annoying twittering sound on both my mk3í s which I cured by spraying silicone spray onto all the rubber door seals the sound has not returned

Worth bearing in mind that the M and S rating ( mud and snow ) makes the tyres better on slippery temporary car parks set up in fields at various shows, hillclimbs, motoX etc. I have actually swapped from summers to winters a couple of times during 'summer' when I knew the carpark would be wet and did not regret it, watching other cars was an education - even my brother in his Nissan 4x4 with limited slip diffs struggled on grassy mud, just like 4X4 struggle on snow when they have summer tyres fitted, much to the drivers surprise.....and disappointment when a Jazz zooms past him.

Also better if you can stop quicker than car in front, if car behind you doesn't stop as quick as you do they are to blame if they hit rear of your vehicle.
