Hmm, fault #4, difficult gear selection... I've noticed something recently.

When downshifting into 2nd or 1st, if I don't double-clutch, it's quite an effort to select the gear.

Now this has been posted does this mean cars older than 3 years can get these items replaced as now Honda are admitting they have issues with the car.

Dont think so, this is issued to Honda dealers to instruct them of ongoing issues.

I have one other previous issue which I posted here a while ago.

Again thanks mate, My car is now booked in for issue number 2. a week on Monday
Ah yes,3rd and 4th synchro set. I had that issue. Get them to photograph the internals of the box so you can assess wear on gears. Also get them to photograph when the box is back together so you can see if they make a pigs ear of the Hondabond sealeant. They made a mess of mine! Also I could see wear on some gears :-(

how can they not recall all dervs based on that? and all 2007 ctrs?
I dont know all the ins and out of it if I'm honest. I'm sure somewhere they will have a term/condition saying "we do what the hell we want outside of warranty periods", I'm paraphrasing of course.

just had a call from the service desk saying the service manager is not aware of any warrenty extensions on this issue so wants my car in and see if Honda will do it from goodwill. But now they have accepted there is an issue surely this shouldnt be an issue.
Does anyone have HUK's number which I can call to see if there was an extension on these issues. My local Honda just didnt seem to know what issues I was talking about etc

My Honda dealer didn't know about these hints and tips documents from HUK til I showed it to them also! Great communication between HUK and dealers. HUK customer Service is 0845 200 8000, hope you dont get a certain unhelpful female :facepalm:

Bear in mind I have issue 7 and HUK still wont authorise the work and I'm in warranty

Does anyone know where I can get the bulletin for fix #6 please? :)

My 2 local Honda dealerships says that the clicking noise from the clutch pedal is the cruise control switch even though I've told them that their showroom Civics which I've sat in and depressed the clutch, don't make the clicking noise :(

I've had #2 done and I have #7. My car is out of warranty, and to be honest I'm not too keen on them replacing the clutch because when this one is shot it is LSD time! :lol:

I might even chuck in a cheeky lightweight flywheel at the same time. ;)
