    No more than £160 including fluids??
    Not sure as thats a rough estimate based on the prices for other jobs http://www.honda.co.uk/cars/owners/partsandservicing/fixedpricerepairs/
    and maybe a friendly local main dealer would like the business in these lean times.

    Thanks bud very kind of you to offer..

    I may just buy the fluid in from HH and give it a go myself. Brakes are easy enough not looked at the power steering or clutch yet but how hard can it be. Failing that will just have to book the old girl in..

    Cheers :Smile:

    Hi Primarycare,
    'Easy enough' is very relative. I don't know your background of course, so don't feel insulted.
    Pay attention to brakes: mistakes can be paid cash (air in circuit!!).
    For clutch: you might need help of a friend to keep the clutch disengaged or a special tool.

    I have just had my brake and clutch fluid changed on my CR-V , total cost £90 from my local dealer . Mind you the brake fluid should have been done as part of the 36k/3 year service. I challenged this and got the whole job for £45
    Regards

    Hi guys.. I fairly good with the spaners so will do the brakes done other cars many times Honda can't be any different.
    Powered steering again fine on other cars but may let Honda do this and the clutch which worries me more.. Would hate myself for messing that little can of worms up ...
