The below scene is what am reminded of every time whenever I hand over my car either to the ASC or a FNG.
Attachment 2217874
Unless if am not observing what they're doing, I'll always have an eerie feeling on what mishaps the blokes would have done. And, to my sorry state, I'll witness my fears coming true. Last service, in my absence, the clowns at the ASC sent my car to a road side mechanic for AC gas recharge without seeking my approval, broke the car's stereo...
1. Source of leakage was from the O ring seal. He also said that there was some problem inside too.😡 What problem can be there remains highly questionable since it was running fine with fluid topped up.
2. Replaced the seal and few parts inside. Parts inside is questionable. But the answer was ď Sir, hum to repair wale ke paas bheja humko wo yehi bolaĒ.
3. Just 70K.Itís 2007 model. I am the second owner since 2012. It had 22K on the odo when I bought this beauty.

You have aptly captured the emotion of leaving the car behind with these butchers.

You must have driven the car sensibly to cross 70k KMs since this is the first time the error has cropped.

You have witnessed the solution beforehand but unfortunately have succumbed to the ploy made up by the cheaters.

Now, the trail is gone cold. We never know what is really inside the pump! The parts that needed replacement are below,

A. O-Rings
1. O - RING, 13.0X1.9 Honda 91345PAAA01 or RUBBER RING Honda 91345RDAA01
The latter is the revised part but it's unavailable in India while the former can be sourced via Boodmo within weeks.
https://boodmo.com/catalog/part-o_ri...0x1_9-6710394/
2. O - RING, 14.4X1.9 Honda 91370SV4000 -
https://boodmo.com/catalog/part-o_ri...4x1_9-6705133/
B. Power steering fluid reservoir (Optional)

TANK COMP, POWER STEERING OIL Honda 53701SNAA01 - https://boodmo.com/catalog/part-tank...g_oil-6705144/

C. Power steering fluid

PSF - 0823599961DA - Rs. 430/- for 1L at the ASC. I guess, you would require 3L to flush the entire system and refill.

Thanks @eccentric.

Was very busy with work and had no time to sit while these repairs were done.

Need to find a reliable garage who wouldn’t take me for ride this high.
Thanks again.

Hi Saket77, checked the brake reservoir, fluid is just below the maximum mark, I opened the cap to double check. Strangely braking performance seems to be perfect when I took her out for a spin after checking the level, in fact it could be better than before or itís in my head No fluid leakage signs under the car or inside any of the alloys either.

What could be the issue? Some kind of air lock? Anything else I need to or should check? Please advice again.

Thank you.

Is there any fluid spillage sign on any of the wheel? If not, please get it checked at Honda or at a good fng. I am suspecting a leaked piston seal or a master cylinder on its last legs. A thorough physical examination is necessary to get to the root of this critical issue.

Regards.

No fluid leakage sign on any wheel or on the floor in my parking space. On the safe side, not driving her till I get it checked properly, donít want any nasty surprise. Will update once I get to the root cause.

Thank you.

Got my Civic back today, serviced and all shiny with a 3M polish. Things taken care of:

1) Brake issue - master cylinder was all right. Seems brake pads were worn out and oil was too old. Brake discís were skimmed, all pads replaced and brake fluid flushed and changed.
2) Engine oil, oil filter, air filter, transmission oil and power steering fluid replaced.
3) Front and rear bumpers painted.

Thank you Saket77 for your guidance.

Cheers

Hello Bhpians,

I am writing to help me understand and resolve some of the issues on my 2021 Civic SMT. I tried keeping my civic to the best way possible and completely in stock except the mugen gear shift knob, new android audio system. Some issues that I started noticing/experiencing off late:

1. Flickering speedo display, gets to settle after driving sometimes , but keep happening
I don't see any issue with battery, but shall still have this checked. how to resolve/check

2. Suggest for change of shocks/suspension, off later feel they are hard and need replacement, my civic has done 55k since 2012. what's the view of coil rubber/spacers?

3. some wear and tear issues
-see the windshield frame rubber/fiber parts, window running strips, roof running fiber strips need to replaced- how easy or hard is this fix
-suggestions for upgrade/replacement for brake disc?
-suggestions for power window panel re coloring/handbrake lever recoloring?

4. any recommended garages apart from dealer, if so suggested oils ( engine, brake, PS)

look fwd to expert views.

VCX, I just did quite a bit of work on my 2010 Civic, see the post above yours, total spend was 32 thousand. Find a good garage outside Honda service, they charge crazy but donít do a good job. All parts were Honda original, engine oil was Mobil 1.

I had my front brake-discs along with brake-pads replaced twice during the 14 years and 1,75,000 kms I owned the Civic.

The rear pads (w/o the discs) were replaced once.

There are methods like brake disk skimming to prolong the life of the discs since replacing is expensive, but I would never compromise on brakes.

My mechanic bought everything locally (not online), no idea from where. He is known by a friend for a very long time so I didnít need to bother with anything. He picked the car up and dropped it back to my place.

I believe a lot of Team BHPians buy/have bought from Boodmo without any issues. Perhaps someone else can chip in on this.

Suspension would have to be seen by a competent and trusted mechanic to see whatís needed and replace accordingly.

Guys

I am also on look out for overhauling my Civicís suspension. I am not able to conclude where to source the parts from. Ghai spares has Monroe in stock and are prices reasonably and the OEM available on Honda are way expensive and the overhaul cost will be way higher. Anyone has any experience with Monroe shocks and other suspension parts?

As most of our Civics' have crossed the 10 year mark, it's becoming evident that the rubber parts used by Honda, be it suspension components, window seals, weather strips and other miscellaneous, have started perishing irrespective of the KMs covered.

My Civic too is in due for a suspension rehaul. While I was pondering on dampers from KONI, the dealer's response was so belated. And they don't have the full set in stock yet. So, I have ruled them out.

6000K results in poor visibility during rainy and foggy weather conditions and on two-way roads when you are constantly blinded by the halogen beams of the oncoming vehicles.

However, LEDs inside a reflector setup will not result in the desired focus as we expect. Yet, I installed the below in my Civic last week.

Will share impressions along with pictures in due course.
My impressions stand the same as mentioned in the quote. In addition to that, couldn't witness proper cutoff between left and right beam emitted and they scatter more. Does the job in pitch dark conditions with nil traffic oncoming. Will suit highway driving. The pictures depict the 6000K bulb light output in the Low Beam housing.
