Washed my Type S and then fitted a pair of Heko wind deflectors. Also put my new set of mats in, replaced the worn and holed Civic mats for a set of after-market ones, at less than a quarter of the price of a new set of Honda mats.

Why the need for additional breathers?

I was also wondering what the reason was behind this.

Booked the civic in to Honda main dealer to finally get a clutch fitted.

Itís toast. Slipping like mad, HDS says contact point of 8.06mm and coefficient of 870 and jerking.

Also manages to find a set of City pack door protectors in my colour, brand new in the box. What a find!

After al this is done booked it in to the body shop for a side paint job as someoneís keyed my car a while back , have the image pack parts Iíve secured painted and installed.

Got the A/C recharged today. Icy cool air now coming out of the civic. Hopefully there are no leaks and it stays charged. If it leaks then I'll get UV stuck in it to find it

Cleaned the MAF sensor.

Nice little ring of dirt came off the entire thing.

Refitted the clock/radio display after it came back from being repaired.
So nice to have it all working properly again, and so much easier to fit than it was to remove!

The "What did you do to your car today?" thread (merged)

Replaced my wifeís rear brake pads as they were grinding. I couldnít see the reason why when I first took the wheel off as there was quite a bit left on the outer pad so thought it might be a rock stuck between the disc and the disc shield. Having taken the caliper off I worked out the problem; uneven wear of the pads. This was only on the offside the near side was nice even wear. Does anyone know what may have caused this uneven wear to the pads?

Sticking sliders, I’d guess.

Thanks Karlos. I thought so too and used a smear of copper grease when put them back together. I’ll report back after the next change of pads.

Copper grease won't do the trick for them. Will eventually wear out and cause your sliders to seize up. You are better with a grease compatible with the rubber boot as well as the sliders such as red rubber grease or a good silicone based grease. I would take that cooper grease out and clean the sliders up. Apply some of the above.

Oh, Iíve always used copper grease around the brakes. Iíll see how much time I have tomorrow and if I get a chance in the evening Iíll take them apart again, clean out the copper grease and apply some red rubber grease. Thank you for the advice!

Copper grease on the back of your pads and edges and lithium grease for the slider pins. The lithium grease is meant to be the best as won't wear out or damage the rubber boot. Any other grease including copper will eventually damage the boot for the sliders.

Cleaned the car externally for he first time in theee months.

Need to wait until itís a slight bit warmed until I can do a full decon and restore the plastics that have gone funny again. No matter what I do hard water ruins them!

Took the spoiler off the FN2 and drilled a small hole at each end to let the water out.

Booked in the car at Honda Chelmsford for major works.

Clutch kit, input shaft bearing (15 minutes extra work while the box is off, good preventative maintenance) and a set of shaft seals on the box.

Hoping that's because the clutch is worn that is hasn't worn down to rivets and necessitates a new flywheel as well. Some slippage but not loads and ints infrequent so I'm hopeful it's fine.

They'll have the car for the best part of a week making sure everything is fine and I'll have to make do with a Jazz which i hate with a passion.

On the plus side, cleaning the MAF has certainly improved pickup and economy a tremendous scale. Butt dyno and fuel economy on my standard routes via computer proves it. Idle is now down to a smooth 700rpm from 780.
