    Driveshaft dynamic damper

    I used a j&r driveshaft when mine snapped, but the mechanic fitted it, so don't know about the damper. Quite a few people have used them over the years though, so hopefully someone can shed some light on it.

    Driveshaft dynamic damper

    Working on front brakes reminded me that I'd seen this earlier:- O/S "dynamic damper" (Honda parts list description) seems to have destroyed itself - see pics, N/S one seems ok. From reading elsewhere, seems this is caused by trapped moisture leading to corrosion on the shaft and that corrosion eventually causing possible snapped driveshaft ? On mine, although you can't see it clearly in pics, there are signs of corrosion to the shaft inside the doughnut (and it seems like the diameter of the shaft is less there than the rest of the shaft - normal ?). Anyway, my first thought was to cut this doughnut off, as it can't be acting as it should, the state its in. But, question is - if I do cut it off, is this going to cause vibration or other adverse effects ? (opinion seems divided as to whether these dampers actually do anything much) Next - as I'm now worried that I could have a driveshaft that is already weakened, looking towards replacing it in near future (complete with CV joints both ends). Looking at replacements on Ebay, found a J&R item for a reasonable price, but no doughnut/damper on the shaft. Anybody got experience of using these non-OEM shafts with no damper on their car (maybe in conjunction with the original shaft/damper on the other side). Any problems ? Or, if I replace one side with no damper, do I also need to replace the other side with no damper ? Also - do these non-OEM items generally come with the correct number of "teeth" on the ABS ring ?

    ABS not working, no ABS light on

    TBH mate, mine on Ruby was the same. If it was a really icy bit of road, even doing 10mph the abs would go like crazy but the car would still be going forwards. ABS is crap on icy or really slippy roads.

    HELP - Buy a Civic M

    Hi Tiago. 1st thing to see is our buyers guide >>>> https://civic5.com/forum/main-pages/honda-civic-buyers-guide/ Next, have a good look thought he forum as most things from faults to modifications and whats parts are interchangeable are all in the forum mate. MB3 is the 1.5cc D series (with VTEC-E) These are really great all round cars, still quite nippy speed wise, but give incredible fuel ecconomy . Quite a few MB3's in the club.

    ABS not working, no ABS light on

    Update: this winter i've noticed that on very slippery conditions and on slow speeds, the abs works intermittently. Let's say i'm going down a icy road at 40km/h (25mph), jam the breaks, and the abs will go on and off multiple times during the duration of the braking. So kind of works but... lacks power? Could it be the abs pump on its way out?

    So basically if iabs was removed or used some aftermarket manifold it would work ?

    Vti-s Turbo project

    Jeese, that's a big empty space with it all removed eh!

    Vti-s Turbo project

    So managed to get inner ends off. Random there's no flats to get a spanner on like on me old eg. Had to get a pair of grips on the go. So just waiting on the new bits to turn up to reassemble. Hoping this lot transforms the car. As the handling has been a big bug bear for me. And has developed many clunks since the power has been upped, Obviously stressing the already tired parts. So will be a complete new front end.

    Dawns Civic Aerodeck Updated 28/5/13

    Not been up to much being on lockdown cos of this stupid covid19 nonsense. Did however decide I hated those black centre caps on DD's wheels so managed to track down a set of oem ones and fitted them today. Looks way better I think

    Vti-s Turbo project

    It's never ending Jake, and always one bloody bolt to halt proceedings, but supose if all the jobs went smoothly it would soon get boring. The satisfaction you get when you finally get the offending bolt out and everything's back together is amazing.
