Hey people

ive had my 09 Type S GT a few years now, and is till haven't been able to find any sort of maintenance manual for it.
i had a recommend from another forum about a guy selling cd's on ebay but it turned out to be total BS, there was nothing on it.
as far as i know Haynes hasn't created one.

so i was just wondering if anyone has managed to get there hands on a decent Haynes style manual, make the own maintenance a little easier.

cheers people.

Wait, we get a manual? Where is this? Is it useful for a noob who hesitates to clean his egr valve?
And as a bonus the location of the secret pen compartment is also revealed (have a search on here as it is often discussed)
Best £5 you will spend

I thought the secret pen compartment was a myth, foretold in legend during the time of the 7th generation civic? I heard men were driven mad searching for a button or latch that would reveal the Pen of Legend, but their search found them nothing but suffering and broken finger nails, until they could no longer take the torment and bought a vauxhall....

It has been written in the stones that some men were driven to such fate, others persevered and the myth became reality and they held aloft the mighty pen. Still have mine as it happens, i should really have replaced it when i sold the 8g but i just stuck a wee note in the compartment instead.

eBay won't enligten you. Written in the legends there is mythical town called Swindon. You must look for a large building text that glows red in the dark and it reads HONDA. Here is where you will find everything you want to know about the legend. Be warned you'll have to get a job there for the secrets to be revealed and to obtain a manual.

hey guys, just wondering if anyone has successfully fitted heated seat switches to their type s mk8 i want to do it, looking to get the parts, was just wondering if anyone could tell me before i start if everything else is fitted, like usual on cars it just needs plugging in?

I haven't seen anyone who's managed to do this. You'll need more than just the console switches - wiring, relay(s) and then different seats with the OEM heater elements built in.

Would be quite a job but achievable, I'd recommend an auto electrician at least checks its safe.

The aftermarket elements don't appear to be reliable with many burning out, going up on smoke, etc

aaaa, was kinda hoping the wiring and relays at least would be pre-installed, ok well will have to get my hands on a working manual and figure it out. somehow.
while im on here, i had my inflation indicator come up last night, found one tyre down, adjusted it, but its still there, after reading my manual, it seems like i have to manually reset and initialize the system, correct?
