    I'm going to start a full service on the FR-V this weekend starting with Oil, oil filter, Air Filter & Fuel Filter.

    Any tips and advice before I start my first FR-V & diesel service? Apart from inspection checks on brakes etc is there anything else I should be replacing? Car has done 70k.

    Can anyone provide the following torque setting please?
    Sump plug.
    Oil filter.
    Gear box drain and filler.

    Thanks guys :Thumbup:

    Cabin filters or just hoover the existing ones.
    brake fluid flush possibly clutch fluid as well.
    Grease slider pins on brake calipers
    Ensure battery terminals and ground screws are clean.

    A swivel head socket is needed for the fuel filter housing.

    I don't think we've had a documented service of an I-CDTI on an FR-V. Would be good if you could do a mini write up @Bones126 :Smile:

    Wear gloves. Used diesel oil is something you do not want on your skin.
    Plenty of old rag/absorbent paper to mop up and clean the oil filter cover and socket.

    The guides @SpeedyGee has quoted are really good. @Paul did a good job there.
    If you can, please take plenty of photographs. This will help other FR-V owners.

    Agree with everything mentioned so far - I would also check your suspension components for any play, bushes, steering boots etc as well. Should be fine at 70k but no harm in checking

    I normally go around and grease up door hinges etc at the same time, but thats just me.

    Look forward to seeing your guide/s

    You need a really long 14mm spanner to move the belt tensioner, it takes some force.

    If your pads do need changing I would highly recommend yellow stuff pads.vastly improves the brakes for very little outlay. A must for this car in my opinion as the original pads are very poor.

    Probably overkill but no harm in checking your engine coolant, im sure you can buy cheap testers.I replaced mine @136k so you should really be fine.

    Service I would say is 75% done, I just need to go back and do the EGR clean, pollen filter replacement and I think I'm going to replace the transmission oil too. The engine and engine bay need a clean too.
    Took a while to do what I've done as I did it at my dads house on the flat and spent 1/2 the time talking to neighbours asking about the baby or talking to my dad.

    I've taken pictures of most of the work to be able to put a guide together which I'll work on over the next few days, but seam to have forgot to have taken pictures of the brakes being bleed etc.
    So, major jobs done Saturday are;
    Oil change
    Oil filter change.
    Fuel filter change
    Air filter change.
    Brakes flushed and bleed.
    Clutch pedal Lubrication - to stop squeaking.
