Has anyone actually had this replacement done yet, I'm a bit worried about them disturbing the dash and creating rattles and other problems..?

Both sides done - No problems.

Bought my EX in Aug 2016 at 4 yrs old. It had an outstanding recall then. It's only taken Honda 3yrs 6 months from then to finally take it in for what was now TWO recalls.

Like others there was the fear of the unknown - will they break something, misfit interior panels, upset the radio, the one touch auto windows, etc.

The only things I noticed on collection were:

1) That it only took half the time they said - est. 2.5-3hrs. Got a phone call after 1.5hrs.
2) The car was cleaner than when I took it in.
3) MY immense relief that it's finally been done.

Everything else worked as it did before I took it in. Nothing for me to reset, reprogramme or retune.

Only three things let them dowm:

1) The inordinate time it took to get round to it.
2) The failure to offer a courtesy car - a missed opportunity to get me to at least TRY a Mk4.
3) The inordinate time it took to get round to it.

Mine was done in 2017 and I got two courtesy cars. The Jazz had less than 350 miles on it.

It probably already says this in this post, there have been five recalls that I am aware of on the Jazz. They are, two for the airbags,driver and passenger; two for the drivers door window control unit; and one for a wiring problem concerning the headlights inside the area behind the steering wheel.
All mine were done promptly and with the minimum disturbance to myself.

Vic.

Had my passenger airbag recall done about a month ago and it came out with the lights for the recirculation buttons not working
I drove it when it was dark trying to work out what was different because something felt strange but it then hit me I couldn't see what they were for
They randomly came back on a couple of weeks ago

The dealership also tried charging for a key battery without checking with me as the alarm was apparently going off
