My first forum post! i've recently just purchased my first civic type r and I'm loving every minute of it so far.I bought the car knowing it needed some work. I had to remove the n/s brake dust shield as it had rotted away. Today I was working on the o/s front and I had to remove the dust shield...
Facelift 8g. I am not sure if the bulb expoded or what happened but I just noticed that both sides are cracked on the inside-red-section that covers the break light. One side is worse than the other with a little piece of plastic chipped and burnt marks on the inside plastic - looked like a...
Looking at ctr brakes for my 2.2, stupid question, the brakes on the type r, are they big brake kits?
Typed type r brake kits into google and it was bringing up the big brake kits so I was just wondering
Hello, I kerbed my wheel today! I ended up having to get a new tyre. *cries* was hoping for this to never happen but I guess it did. Was rushing for no reason and tried getting through tight gap of cars so my idiotic fault and I usually drive slower than people.
I had the car jacked up waiting...
Could anyone give me a link to ebay for clear / silicone tube for brake bleeding.
First time so I don't wont to get the size wrong etc..
With little bit of research a believe its either 6 or 7mm, any idea which will work better?
I'm after a bit of advice -I'm trying to upgrade my type s 2.2 front brakes to type r spec -the aim being to improve the poor feel of my brakes -commuting only, no track etc.
I've a set of 2nd hand genuine honda type r calipers/carriers and a new set of brembo discs & pads to fit fn2.
Hey. Had a PGM-FI warning come up yesterday. The only thing I changed was LED tail/brake lights. Put the old bulbs back and tried the reset procedure in the manual but it doesn't work. Anyone know how to reset it?
The reset procedure is apparently done by turning the engine on and off at 30...
Hey, I'm new and was just hoping one of you can help me, I have a 56 2.2 I-cdti civic and I have a grinding noise when I brake sometimes, but the brakes and disks look like they got plenty of life left in them, and another thing is there's a screeching sometimes when I drive coming from the...
I am still not happy with my brakes. And that is after EBC Ultimax discs, YellowStuff pads, HKS braided lines and uprated fluid.
My pedal still feels like its made of butter after a few hard brakings. Is it the master cylinder or is it the size of the discs? 282mm std. Or even maybe a pad that...
I've just bought a 2008 civic type r, in red, 56k fsh....seen sense and converted from VAG!
I picked it up from the garage on Friday, over thr weekend I've noticed what I would call excessive road noise at >35mPh and a strange sensation when braking to a stoP... Like I'm pulsing...
Just thought I would share the treats that I am giving my TypeR at the end of this month.
HEL 6 line braided brake hose kit
Motul RBF 660 brake fluid
Cosworth Streetmaster brake pads (Front and Rear)
DBA 42500S Front discs (wiper slot)
This will be my first braking upgrade for this...
Honda Civic 2008 bought recently. I’m getting a clicking noise (same sound as when clicking a computer mouse but amplified X1000) at sudden braking and sudden pull out. On sudden braking, sometimes I get this clicking sound twice immediately one after each other. The sound is definitely coming...
i double checked my admiral insurance policy for changing my oem honda disc and pads to ebc turbogroove and green stuff pads. it will cost me extra 14.84 to add to my policy, is this normal guys? you would think they would charge less for putting better brakes on the car :confused:.
Ok, just put my car in today for a service after I have done about 10k miles in just over 6 months since I bought my 09 2.2 es civic from them.
They said the rear brake disc had corroded and needed replacing and that would be £195 for the parts (no pads). Does this seem a little pricey? Could...
I hope someone could shed some light on a warning that I have been getting on my display when starting up. I get the message (!) on the multidisplay. Before I can do anything it disappears. After a few days it comes back (always on the first start up of the day) and disappears again. I...
Just wondering if anyone has got the Mugen brake pads on their Type R and would like to give a review or at least their opinion as to whether they are worth forking out the coin!
Much appreciated :eek:
