    Ball joint nuts

    It wouldn't be fine if mods were discovered in a post-accident investigation. Anything other than the manufacturer supplied piece could be used in a rejection of claim/ damages scenario. Threadlock isn't a modification is it and besides it's hardly likely to lead to a critical failure...

    2008 Accord Clutch/Cruise Control Issues

    What happens in between zero and full travel of pedal for both switches 25%, 50%, 75% of travel? Trial and error... slacken off half a turn and see how it goes. If you're prepared to run without CC what difference does it make if you remove the switches? Until you can properly identify this...

    2008 Accord Clutch/Cruise Control Issues

    Trial and error...as I said I just can't find the settings/distances for your set up in the workshop manual so I really don't know nor do I know how these switches are supposed to work. You could slacken off switch A half a turn and see if it makes a difference sure. Fahad says in this thread...

    2008 Accord Clutch/Cruise Control Issues

    Ok, I've had a look at the icdti models of 2007 & 8 in the workshop manual and I cant find a cruise control system with two switches on the clutch, only clutch and brake. The schematic below and above I believe is the correct one for your car and again there aren't two switches on the clutch...

    2008 Accord Clutch/Cruise Control Issues

    Err ok, before I go any further check your log book. Make sure you accurately put the exact model in your car description or signature as I don't think it can be an SE and an icdti, is it a saloon or tourer? Anyhow same diagnostic method applies, check the switches are positioned correctly and...

    2008 Accord Clutch/Cruise Control Issues

    Hi, I meant look again at the schematic. I thought they used two sensors but they only use one. The manual in my signature is for the Mk7 so not for you, your car is a Mk8 isn't it? They did make some Mk7s in 2008, is it an i-cdti or i-dtec diesel engine...

    2008 Accord Clutch/Cruise Control Issues

    Actually look again, it seems there is only one clutch pedal sensor that could be EITHER part 7 or 8. Sorry, less to go wrong then. Above has been edited.

    2008 Accord Clutch/Cruise Control Issues

    I don't have a Mk8 but I looked at the schematic below. You have one switch (part 7 OR 8) that threads into the clutch pedal chassis and engages with the pedal and therefore the clutch when it's both engaged and released. Make sure it is adjusted and tightened accordingly and then check the...

    Rear anti roll bar bushes

    I made that mistake ordering the wrong size... I checked the part no with my vehicle which is a bit younger but should be the same and it has the 22,2 stamp. Part No 52315-SED-004 (PFKL670513)...

    Ball joint nuts

    You've made your point Samaya, more than once. The problem is or was that you couldn't provide any supporting evidence (there is none) to justify not using Nylocks alone while also stating they can strip and the use of thread lock can also cause problems neither of which is true and despite the...

    Ball joint nuts

    Thank you. Our friend Sayama is mistaken, nylon is actually a polymer but that's ok. Hopefully anybody else reading this thread will also realise that Nylocks are absolutely fine and cannot be stripped as accused and we have given an explaination as to why. The fact that car and component...

    Ball joint nuts

    LoL....scrapping the barrel there, whatever wheel fastener they are describing it isn't a nylock. There is no full polymer lining on a nylock, the fastener's strength comes from the metal on metal contact through the thread (like any ordinary nut) and the partial polymer insert prevents...

    Ball joint nuts

    Sorry but that's complete nonsense, a nyloc is essentially the same as an ordinary nut except for the top portion of it which is undersized in nylon or polymer which is why they need to be completely threaded on. They have as much chance of stripping as an ordinary nut as long as it is properly...

    Not at all, with the right stuff... "For a hold that can be easily removed, Loctite Threadlocker Blue 242 is the hero. It’s perfect for motorized and nonmotorized parts that need occasional servicing, like car parts (oil pans, water pumps, etc), or even motorized yard equipment, bicycles...

    Ball joint nuts

    Completely unnecessary, Nylocks are perfectly fine as long as the whole nut is fully screwed on and they are not frequently removed. Use a threadlock if you're concerned.

    Won’t start

    If it starts with EasyStart and then continues to run fine it isn't a fuel delivery problem it's a starting problem, I'd check or replace the glow plugs.

    Knocking from Rear of Tourer

    Put someone in the back with a mechanics stethoscope while you travel over bumps, maybe they can locate or narrow down the area of concern?
