Just bought an 06 2.2

Well after looking round for a nice diesel four door I have just bought a grey civic 2.2. I collect it in a few days and I can wait. Any advice for looking after these cars would be awesome. Cheers in advance guys
Time to get ordering an iPod adapter and start looking for p type r bits

Welcome to civinfo mate, great bunch of people on here!

What colour you chosen mate? Great choice of motor had mine for a month now and love it, things to look for are the clutch pressure plate mechanism can be a bit dicky at times causing minor slipping, this should be covered under warranty though so don't let it put you off! There may be a clicking sound now and again when changing from forwards to backwards or turning, this is the sub frame and is a simple fix using the tegiwa subframe collars or equal. Apart from that only problem i had with mine was the stock stereo cut out when i had the heaters on for too long, bought a replacement unit but ended up going aftermarket in the end as the sound quality from the honda headunit is really poor
hope you enjoy it as much as i do mine though! I have type R front and rear splitters to fit once i've sourced some side skirts and wheel arch trims

nice one , well taking the dash apart was a concern of mine until i followed this video on youtube.


Watching that video and pausing at each stage meant that a 9min video became an 18minute job as it took me the same time as it did the bloke in the video easy to do and well worth the extra sound quality and DVD capabilities

Cheers fella it looks fairly easy and shouldn't take to long. What iPod connector did you fit and where did you route it to. Is it possible to get to the bottom of the stereo so I wouldn't have to remove it. Just reach from underneath and plug it in?

Happy days it should be an easy enough thing to do. It just seems odd to start tearing up my new baby lol. Was thinking of putting a double din sat nav one day so may hold off on this for a bit. On the look out for some type r bits, my brother is a sprayer so don't mind if they are a little damaged. Just need to hide all the bits from the bird as we are apparently saving for a wedding, when I say we I mean purely me

Well I have picked her up and I love her such a nice thing to drive! To say I'm happy is an understatement. Allready thinking of a remap but I'm just not sure. Need to have a go in one that's been done really

Remaps are hard on the clutch so keep that in mind if you do go down that road.

Well only after less than a day with the car and the clutch is slipping in 4th gear. Looks like I'll be getting a new fitted thankfully courtesy of the garage I purchased them from. They just don't know it yet

And now it bloody won't slip. Nothing worse than an intermittent fault.

Mine slipped when I first got it, then stopped and has been fine for a year and about 13,000 miles now I think it was possibly sitting for a while?

Cheers. I'll try getting it to slip in all gears tomorrow and if it does it's going back. Rather get it sorted now rather than arguing with garage in six months time.
