    High consumption - possible causes

    If you are driving a petrol Accord, then 6l/100km is good. Diesel, not bad. It depends on how much weight is in the car, air con on, motorway or road. My diesel does 5l/100km on the motorway but 7l /100km on small roads with stopping and starting.

    Second hand parts

    Yes it was the passenger door switch Mine came with the trim etc attached. Hopefully it is just trim difference with yours and you can take the old switch off your trim and put the new switch onto it. Who knew a door window switch controlled so mucg of the car.

    Second hand parts

    That is the switch I purchased from above. Cost £30. A breaker offered me the exact same switch from the exact same car (they both gave me the number plate of the car) for £135. Good luck.

    Passenger Power Window & Mirror not working.

    I got one from a breakers yard as well. £30 delivered. Its a 35760-TLO-E11-M1. My car is a 58 plate Exc and the spare part came from a 10 plate estate Exc. I took the switch out my car so I knew the part number. The breakers yard gave me the Reg of the donor car and I checked with Honda to see...

    Hi. I have this problem as well. Can somebody tell me how to remove the front passengers switch from the armrest on a 58 plate CDTI Exec. If I attach it I will just end up breaking it. Thanks Stephen

    Rear Brake Piston

    Thanks for all the advice. The car has done 230k so I guess another caliper for £40 would be a good investment really. Plus it is not a big job.

    It is hollow, with no slots for winding in.

    Rear Brake Piston

    Hmmm, I seem to remember that is how I have done it in the past but it is not moving this time. I might open the bleed nipple a bit and see if it wants to come right.

    Rear Brake Piston

    Hi All. I am changing the rear disc pads on my 58 plate saloon but the piston does not slide back in and there does not seem to be a way to wind it back in. Should it just push back because that is what I seem to remember. Oh, it is the offside if that makes any difference. Thanks.

    Car Security System not flashing.

    Hi All. Thanks for the quick replies. I have just opened and closed all the windows in my car, checking as per the post above plus fiddled with the switch in the glove box. To be honest I am not sure if the switch should be in the on position or showing red. Anyway, the switch on the boot does...
