This is one for the record books in my eyes; a neighbour on my street has a 2007 Honda Jazz CVT, the 7 speed. He tagged me a few weeks back to have a look at his Jazz, the MIL was lit on the dash. I had a look at this car in the evening to find the ECU full of DTC's all related to engine and PGM-FI not to mention all four disc heavily corroded and poor brakes, but that was on the back burner until I fixed the core issues. I was totally shocked to see and learn this car had not been serviced four years. This Jazz had it first service in 2007 at 9000 miles and the current mileage was 36500 miles with no service stamps in the service book and under the hood it was confirmed the engine oil was blacker than a diesel oil and thicker than treacle. The list of problems on the Jazz: The car making banging noises at idling. Noises from the gearbox when slotted into Drive. Idling irregular. No air flow from blower unit. Brakes non existent. 16 DTC codes of all variants found which is all down to poor maintenance. The owners thought by putting the car through its MOT, it did not need anything else doing! First thing, get the car serviced with everything changed and flushed out. So last weekend I did this car until the heavens opened and wrecked the entire DIY but got the core stuff out of the way. A quick call to Holdcroft Honda Parts team ordered the service kit for this car at our club discount rates , the Jazz owners was mega happy with the prices Airfilter x1 Pollen Filter x1 Oil filter x1 with sumpbolt crush washer Spark plugs x8 CVT transmission fluid Engine oil from Lubetech Exol 5W-40 ( to be replaced after 1000 miles) Air Filter Change This is the world easiest air filter change ever, even my 8 year old can do it. It case of just taking off the four clamps as shown here and removing the top cover and remove the rubber hose. Top cover removed with the clean side of the air filter still dirty Now the dirty side , clearly see it beyond its serviceable life. The air-box showing it been working hard. Before After Pollen Filter Again it really easy remove all the contents of the shelf and glove box and remove the two 8mm bolts at the bottom of the glove box. On removal you will see these two locators with a blue colour code the blue locator is where the 8mm bolts goes in and the two hole on either side are for the plastic dimples on the glove box as locator aligners. with both bolts off remove the glove box then we need to remove the shelf which is held with two Phillips head screws. With the screws off you can now remove the shelf it will be tight but persist gently it will move out like so With the shelf out of the way you can now reach the pollen filter hatch by pressing the two tabs at the end and pulling the filter out. You can see the difference between old and new. More to follow in next post Spark Plug change.
