    Hello,

    This is my first Honda and hoping to save myself and hopefully others stack of cash in repair costs and keep our motors running for as long as we can.
    I did three years as a car Mechanic after school before joining a Large aero-Engine company and doing a craft apprenticeship.
    Love bodging stuff together and hoping it works! Although, I do prefer to check the forums for the really intellectual folk and following proper instructions as that generally works out, as long as there are photos

    @SpeedyGee

    Sorry, what Honda...I wish it sporty Civic or something cool but it's just a standard FR-V family wagon...it's not even got alloys or tinted windows :Frown:
    LoL

    As for my handy bodging skills!!
    Today's task is removal of the ICU so made myself some primitive wooden removal tools based on the tools I saw on a YouTube video...but wait for it...one of them doubles up as a prising tool for opening the unit...taa daa!!

    We've got an FR-V too :Smile:

    Were you having trouble with your indicators ?

    Your little tools look like they came in handy :Thumbup:

    Yes, that's how I stumbled across this forum...so will be heading over to the thread soon to see if what I have found is any good
    I've also had other problems with the rear ABS sensors but had to a replacement from the dealers as I could not find parts anywhere else!

    We've only had it a year but hope to find some alloys and tint the windows and maybe if someone knows how fit some of the 'sport' trim
