General Ask me anything about my 6th Generation

    If you're considering purchasing a 6th Generation and have any questions, feel free to ask me here. No question is too simple, if you need measurements, whether certain parts are upgradeable etc then just ask below and hopefully I or the other knowledgeable members will be able to help.

    I've got a 1.8 Hatchback but questions from all chassis are welcomed.

    Ok @Chunkylover53, where is the drain bolt and level fill bolt for the manual gearbox, what fluid does it take and how many litres?

    Okay @Harvey

    Where is the drain/level fill bolt? Near the middle at the front (I'll update with more precision when I take another look at the car during daylight)
    What fluid? Honda MTF-3
    How much? 1.8ltrs for a fluid change or 1.9ltrs for a overhaul

    Hope this helps

    Air filter takes 5 min max (easiest task by far). Pipercross panel filter for our cars cost £36 IIRC.

    I know this made, had the airbox out a few times. Its the same price direct from Pipercross as it is on the internet in general, so direct it is. At the moment my first priority is get the car through its MOT, now the welding has been done, it should fly through, as well as having done all of the rear brakes.

    It's in pretty good nick for its age really, I like to give it a full wash, polish and wax every few weeks to keep it looking its best. I got a carpet shampooer from work and valleted the interior (Beige cloth) and it came out really well, just stayed damp for a few days inside and it smelled damp for a few days as well untill it fully dried, but you wouldn't believe how much muck came out of the seats and carpets!

    Ditto - I use autoglym interior shampoo and the amount of dirt that came out of the seats was horrendous.

    I don't like Human slime in my car at all. Though I cheated, cus I used the Karcher carpet cleaner from work (from the toolhire and got it for free) then used some Surf (essential oils)laundry detergent mixed with warm water, works a treat!

    As for exterior cleaning
    good quality car shampoo and washed with wash mitt
    Auto Glym super resin polish
    then waxed with Meguires carnauba wax

    You need to add you car to the Club Garage @Harvey. They don't have to be showroom condition.
    In fact, sometimes it's better if they aren't. It's good to see how they get new life into them, and you are certainly doing a good job on yours.
