Question Punctures?

Hi - I have recently inherited a Civic Type R. I am aware that there is no spare wheel, but there is also no sign of the puncture repair kit (pardon my lack of the proper jargon) that the manual says should be there. Any advice or info would be welcome please.

Hi and welcome to civinfo.

It is normally kept in a compartment to the right side of the boot with the compressor.

Have you looked there?

Don't worry about 'the proper jargon' we call it tyre gunk.

I'm sure that you must have looked in all the boot cubby holes, but a spare can of repair gunk is about £40 and then there are the bits and bobs that go with it.
Go for a spacesaver wheel - Around £100, complete with fixing kit and cargo net.
Or, --- Be cheeky and make your friendly Honda Dealer an offer.
I got mine for £80.

Thanks for your replies - will take a look in the daylight!! I got the car from my father, who was very meticulous - the rear headrests were not there and sadly he's not around to ask.... Luckily he'd stacked them neatly in the back of the garage in a box marked 'Honda head rests' Bless!!

Jack the Lad is right, if you haven't got the gunk and need to buy it, then you would be better putting the cash towards the spacesaver spare wheel.

Please don't be alarmed sparrow, this happens sometimes.

Meanwhile, back on topic, have look tomorrow and let us know if you find the gunk.

I would advise anyone who has no spare to aquaint themselves with the compressor and gunk so when you have a puncture its not a shock

Haven't got out to the car yet (yawn). So, if I had the kit and had a puncture, what would be the procedure?? I must say I prefer the sound of a compact...

Hmmm - cross posted there, Rich....... just wanted to know how easy it was compared to changing a wheel - considering the hardest part of removing a wheel is getting the nuts to move (no smutty jokes please).

NB As well as checking for the gunk in the right hand pocket, check for the jack in the left hand pocket.

Hey - turns out I hadn't even found the cubby holes!! Doh - everything there... In my defence, it's all black in there, couldn't see a thing with my Reaction lenses!!

I also found out how you can lift the back seat bases to fit a bike in - havent tried it for size yet, OH is away - he'd be delighted if it works. We also have a Citroen Picasso which is great for when he has a (bike) puncture - but then, now we're a two car family, he's stopped cycling to work!!

Not sure that you can do that with a Type-R
