    Knocking from Rear of Tourer

    My Tourer has had a knocking from the rear when it goes over bumps for literally years. I have looked at everything trying to find it. Stripped the suspension down, struts and springs off, all trim out of boot and been through at least two MOT’s with no problems so confident it’s not a major...

    Headlight Bulbs

    Does anybody else's Accord go through headlight bulbs like they are going out of fashion? Mine seem to blow every few months and tonight it managed to blow both bulbs at the same time. They blew so hard that it actually smashed the glass at the end of one of the bulbs.

    Clutch Auto Adjustment

    Not sure if I have read it somewhere or dreamt it but seem to remember seeing something about 2.2 Diesel having and auto clutch adjustment and that it may not adjust until it's actually starting slipping. Just wondering as mine feels like it's on the way out as the biting point is very high and...

    Tourer Boot Water Leak

    Found my Tourer spare wheel well to be half full of water a few weeks ago which I have temporarily solved by drilling a few holes in the boot floor to drain it but is there a common cause for this? The cloth floor of the boot is totally dry but can see traces of water going down the sides of...

    Have I screwed the Sat Nav?

    Found a v2.11 Sat Nav DVD while doing a clearout. Is not an original but thought it might be worth a try and an improvement on the v2.3 I've currently got. Famous last words! Put it in and screen went black and eventually came up with a message saying do not turn off the engine and very slowly...

    Why do Tourer rear pads never fit out of the box?

    Fitted a new set of rear pads to the Tourer not long before the lockdown but barely driven it since until last weekend when I did a 200 mile trip. When I got home I noticed the offside rear wheel was very hot and indicative of the brakes binding. Had a look yesterday and pads were free (already...

    While I have some time I'm going to replace both lower front suspension arms and one ball joint on my 2004 Tourer as they were highlighted as advisories at the last MOT.

    Hub Nut Size

    Can anybody please confirm the front hub nut size on a 7th Gen 2.2 Tourer? 24mm rings a bell but would like confirmation before I go and source a socket. Also if remove then should I refit a new nut?

    Clock Adjustement

    Strange issue. Fixing a problem with the interior light and managed to blow a fuse. Had to pull a few to find the right one and when I got in today I noticed the clock was wrong. Went into the settings to sort it and can change the clock on the screen but it’s not updating the top display...

    0W-30 or 5W-30

    Lost count of the number of times people have asked am I okay using a 5W-30 oil instead of the recommended 0W-30? Well watch this video and note the difference, when cold, between the 0W and the 5W and imagine the difference this makes in how fast the oil gets to the vital components in the...

    ABS Sensor Quality

    Need to replace a front ABS sensor and the prices are crazy. I can get one for anything from £8 to £88 which is ridiculous. I am sure they vary in quality but I can go through 10 cheap ones for an expensive one! Anybody have experience of the cheaper versions and are they acceptable?

    Do we have the ability to upload images into a post rather than having to host them elsewhere and link? Did I used to see a beta level service for this or did I dream it?

    Limp home - P1065 = Fuel Filter?

    Sudden loss of power at 3,000 rpm and then flashing glow plug light and limp home mode. Just put code reader on which says P1065 which the internet says is low fuel pressure. To me this points first to the fuel filter which I have not yet changed on this car. Anybody agree with my diagnosis...
