Hello everyone. Just found this forum. I'm based in Glasgow. My Car: Accord VTEC SE EXEC 1997cc 2007 (Mk.7) UK spec. Year of 1st Registration: 2002. I've had three Accords over the years and they've all been very reliable, better than most makes but ordinary cars. This one is my retirement vehicle....basically a runaround car. Now I only do a couple of thousand miles per year because we have another new Honda which my wife uses most of the time and for long runs we use that. This Accord's To Do/Repair List: Rear Fuel Pipes corroded - I've no idea how to tackle this. Advice, diagrams etc would be greatly appreciated. Offside Front Droplink worn a bit - spares on the way. Offside Rear brake calliper inoperative - a bit of poking around to do. Rear droplink gaiters perished - I'll just replace the whole droplinks. Offside Front fog light cracked - can't source a suitable replacement yet. Power Asssisted Steering (PAS) Pipes knackered. I managed to get a used set of pipes after many hours of hunting around but they are yet to be fitted. They're a really daft design - designed to be unnecessarily complex and why oh why they put the badly protected metal cooling section right in front of the engine coolant radiator where they'll corrode fastest is a mystery. Maybe it has something to do with generating revenue for garages??? The metal pipework should be much heavier guage and far better protected. For the above jobs my local Honda dealers recently quoted me £2,100!!! Being on a pension income only I can't afford that sort of ridiculous pricing. They refused to give me the replacement part numbers. That's totally unacceptable. I have been hunting around for some time to find a workshop manual and maybe some inside advice. I've avoided downloading the ebay manuals (?) because they look a bit suspect to me. I've always found Hondas to be really good cars, particularly the engines. Admittedly this one is not exactly young but this is the first time I have encountered problems with one.
