As suggested by other members, replacing the pin is a straight forward job. However, I suggest you do make sure why the pin started to have play? Is something else worn. So you do need to make sure the caliper parts gets inspected properly for wear and tear as well. It doesn’t make sense to put a new pin in, if something else is wrong/worn.

Hi Mate,

It is identical to yours, if you ignore the soiled condition in my case.

I'll still wrap it up with steelgrip insulation tape tomorrow. Find it strange honda wouldn't provide full length sleeves for it in the first place.

Please don't mind me saying this, but if the sensor wires and conduit have worked flawlessly without exhibiting any damage for so many years why try to fix something that isn't broken? Or, am I missing something here?

I agree, why fix something that ain't broken?

I too agree with R2D2 and Laluks, IMHO you should let it, as it is.

Hi Guys,

Do you think it is a good idea to put after market seat covers on the leather seats of Civic. The seats in my Civic are in horrible condition specially the front passenger seat & spoil the overall feel of the car at times.

Thanks guys, the repeat message happened as a mistake , Gah !! . There is a similar set of wires at the base too and in the same state. Have left both untouched based on your inputs.

Did install a new cabin air filter though. Had taken the Punto for a pipe replacement to Fiat and got the cabin filter replaced for it and bought one for the civic too from them. It's denso make and cost Rs.232. Was a snug fit in the civvy.

By all means go ahead. I'll be getting mine changed too. But will opt for PU / art 'leather' / 'leatherrite'or whatever it is that the accessories shop guys call it. Leather per se I feel is too warm and maintenance heavy for our weather conditons. Have had Autoform seat covers on the Punto for 5 years now and they've been very good. No slack / colour fade / peeling to date.

Guys, HASS advises me to go in for a suspension overhaul. Estimated to cost around 1 lakh!! The car is now 10 years old, and though odo has only 70k kms on it, it has had a pretty tough 2 years on seriously potholed Goa village roads.

No FNG for me here, but there is a Bosch service center in South Goa. Think its a good idea to get them to take a look?

I am not knowledgeable about suspensions or pretty much anything else. The Civic has been running like a perfect household appliance all this while. But guess those days are over.

Any advice would be great.

Other work coming up soon: Front bumper's clips to attach to the body are broken, and need to replace (and paint the bumper). A tail light broken. Scratches by stupid kids that have been there since 2008. A scratched up area outside the front right wheel well where a scooter banged into. Not a good year for me!

Drop a line to Coolkurt. He'll help you source spares from Ghai Auto Spares in Delhi, they'll ship it across and you can get the work done at a good local garage. You'll get the work done at less than half of what HASS has quoted.

I had done my Civic front suspension overhaul for 34K in 2014. Source parts from online sites.
A front suspension overhaul would need below

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/long-t...ml#post3650144

Try and source branded products like TRW (spareshub.com eg) which will cost around 10-15k. The front 2 shocks will cost around 8 each.
Total you should not be spending more than 30-35k. Avoid unbranded components as these will not last long.

Thank you! I guess I should first take it to Bausch to confirm what HASS is telling me, then identify the parts to be replaced and then contact Coolkurt to source the parts.

That's a relief!

I'll go through that thread. Definitely no unbranded components for me. Peace of mind above all! Thank you.

.
Kindly do get it checked as 'suspension parts' In itself is a broad term and encompasses a whole lot of components. It'll save time and money if you know which specific parts to replace. The entire system rarely goes kaput in one go.
