I found out the hard way NOT to jet wash around the brakes. All it did was fill up the gap tween this and that and needed a strip down to get the grit out of the caliper/pads and cover.  I had covered the discs etc up with a plastic bag but a pressure washer laughs at plastic bags.
Incidentally, I had problems with a main dealer and brakes. Eventually done BUT as they had replaced the pads prior to selling the car and when I made a fuss they replaced the front discs NOT the pads and replaced rear discs and pads. When I put it to Honda, it was done as a good will gesture. They would not comment on the front pads not being replaced. The problem with some dealers it seems is that if it passes it's MOT that's fine BUT modern cars should do more than JUST PASS the MOT. By the By it had a Honda 2 yr extended warranty. There was more substance  in what I have just written than their flipping warranty.

On the jet washing of brakes - was jet washing (the body of) my own car at the weekend and a neighbour started chatting.  He works for a car manufacturer and, unprompted, said they've had a bulletin to keep jet washers completely away from the wheel area as they had an incident where a brake hose was cut and they determined it'd been done by a jet wash.

More generally I've been merrily exchanging emails with the dealer and Honda UK.  Honda UK are just repeating back to me what the dealer are saying - it's like their customer service has no depth within Honda.
