    Hi ,

    If you were close enough I would have done it for you the facelift one are easier than the preface lift ones. Shame you across the seas. I will try to dig up a DIY steps for you that is assuming you have the skills to do it.

    Planning on doing pretty much the same with mine shortly . Similarly it will be my first time working on a Honda. The fuel filter seems to be something which is mentioned alot as awkward . Honda in Galway told me they allow 1hour for their techs to carry it out. Not sure how close to correct that is though. I see there is a video on this for the CR-V On YouTube but the think the bay and the filter differ somewhat. Perhaps similar to the change in filter between the Pre/facelift models.
    Seem to be a lot of guys on here changing break discs.. Are they prone to a lot of wear or warping or are people upgrading them. I did notice mine were changed post it's last MOT before I bought the car. I bought the Car with 52k miles and only about 55 on it now. Would mileage have you seen on pads/ discs on the diesel accord .

    I've got a 2005 pre-facelift model with the apparently harder-to-change Bosch filter and changed it myself for the first time earlier this year without seeing the DIY. I wouldn't say it was a particularly tough job (e.g. no need to get under the car), but I was very glad I had several different drive size socket sets so I could use two universal drives on a 0.25" drive socket to get to the bolt at the rear of the filter. Worked fine afterwards.

    I'm sure the DIY will make it clear!

    Zofo69 did you ever get a chance to do the fuel filter. Looking at trying this tomorrow so want to know if there is anything I need to look out for?

    In the midst of it now but having to take a lot of breaks to let the showers pass..just putting it back in now. awkward enough and you want plenty of socket extensions and universal joints. I've taken pics as I went so I will try to post them this weekend.
