    Auto version Fuel filter is not where the manual version lives. Its as Fahad says under the rear of car. The manual versions are straightforward to access behind the strut brace.

    Clutch Master Cylinder - Accord 2009 2.2 i-dtec type s Saloon

    There looks to be a small electronic unit with a green plug that obstructs the access to the nut, you can see this from underneath the dash. I didn't have time to have a decent look at how to remove that but I think that is the main obstruction.

    Clutch Master Cylinder - Accord 2009 2.2 i-dtec type s Saloon

    I had a look at mine tonight and I think with a 1/4" or 3/8" socket set and a longish extension with a universal joint it is accessible from the front if you drop the panel just below the wheel and go straight in.

    Hand brake adjustment for 2011 accord I-detec ex

    Adjust it at the hub first, you probably will not need to adjust the main nut.

    Clock gone haywire !

    I'm not sure I'd base my car buying decision on something as trivial as a clock, I think reliability is far more important than an incorrect time on a digital clock. On that basis alone I would find it hard to walk away from a Honda, but you pays your money and you takes your chances.

    centre console hdmi and aux points

    The wired solution from headphone jack to aux actually works quite well, USB is less reliable and bluetooth is useless except for phone calls.

    centre console hdmi and aux points

    USB port is for plugging in a USB stick, its a bit flakey. My IPhone used to work but now does not . if you have a 3.5mm stereo to 3.5mm stereo lead you can plug it into your phone and play directly from that but as far as functionality with the head unit goes its not a runner.

    Honda are the best place to get them from IMO.

    knock from Front left corner

    I changed the whole arms on mine as well. If you are doing this yourself, it might be worth getting some new bolts for that bush. They can seize in the chassis and can be troublesome to remove.

    Type s facelift lights

    No canbus on these cars. Personally I stick with old skool bulbs. I have seen to many weird failure and strange stuff with LED's installed in cars that were not designed for them.

    Auto levelling HID's

    I haven't had to do anything to my Accord but the wifes Impreza has HID and the little arm failed and caused the beam to be very low. The local farm store had 6mm balljoint ends for tractor windows and two of them and a small piece of 6mm threaded rod made a very acceptable substitute. The...

    Windscreen trims

    Mine came from a Honda dealers and the trim was loose, I didn't want to lose the trim so prised it off carefully, cleaned and dried thoroughly and used black tigerseal to re-attach the trim. It hasn't moved in the several years since so I'm hoping it will stay that way. I don't like the little...

    Clock setting woes

    It is a problem that affects many Honda's it has to do with the GPS data in the navi system and is not fixable at the present time. My 8th Gen started to do that from 01/01/22 and many other Hondas are also affected. The issue is that the Navi system is running Windows CE and the way the date...

    Clock an hour out on 2.2 i-DTEC EX GT with navigation

    The date is important as the time of year will either be BST or Standard which will in turn change it by an hour. You have to disconnect the GPS aerial to prevent it self updating.

    Clock an hour out on 2.2 i-DTEC EX GT with navigation

    My 2013 Type S is the same, showing 1 hr fast. I went into the menu on the nav screen and noticed that it is indicated as WET which I ***ume refers to Western Europe Time? In the menu I could set it to the correct time but it doesn't change the aircon display time below the nav screen.

    Front Suspension bush - Inside

    Plenty of penetrating oil on the captive nut on the big bushing. That vertical bolt often seizes and is somewhat aggravating to remove. I did mine not too long ago and fortunately they werent seized, my previous 7th Gen had the near side seized when I did them years ago and that required a lot...
