  2. You'll find a wiring diagram in the service manual here : https://civic5.com/forum/files/file/1-honda-civic-1995-2000-aerodeck-service-manual At least for the civic anyway.

  3. So found my mirrors - they're from a Rover 45 for reference. Photos below of the plug/wiring, if the mirrors on the website are like these they should just plug straight in, but I wouldnt know if they'd work straight away. You'll probably need to get a wiring diagram for both cars to match the wires up. A quick search suggests that the two black wires are for the heated mirror element.

  5. Cheers Dave. In a way it all feels like fate - if it hadn't been for the first place doing such a shocking job, and a rubbish bodge, I wouldn't have found out how bad mine was, wouldn't have found this garage, and wouldn't have ended up finding out about @Grant amazing shell. Wouldn't have ended up spending as much either like, but at least now she's good for another 20 years (fingers crossed).

  8. Welcome Dan, really sweet MB2 you've got. Reminds me of Ruby my MB6! Loving the mods so far, and the bigger front fogs are rare as hell! Nice MB this!

  9. Thanks anyway, but I have a Haynes manual for the Civic. Would like to check the Mirrors Wiring Diagram of the Rover 400, though... I'm not going to buy an entire manual just to look at one Diagram :/

  10. Hello Dave, thanks for your fast reply :) I will definitely do your checks. But please wait a bit. I am pretty busy every day so it will take time. The car has always been in perfect condition. No previous issues were known before doing that big maintenance on the car. I don't know if the head was checked before the new gasket was fitted (I think yes, see below) In the meantime I would have a clarification. What do you mean with "the airlock"? Do you mean a bubble inside the coolant circuit? I unscrewed a bit the radiator cap with the engine on normal working temperature and som

  11. Slight update - Finally got round to removing the rear wiper and followed the guide from here. If anyone else does this, removing bothside trims on the boot definitely helps and you cant get away with just removing one! Managed to find a nice aluminium bung which uses O-rings as a seal. Think it tidies up the rear nicely but highlights just how rubbish the paintwork is on the car! Other than that I think future mods are going to have to wait - bloody Covid and all the uncertainty it's bringing. Cant really justify spending lots if things are going to get tough with

  12. Hi All, Figured I should actually start a post after years of lurking on here - A big belated thanks to all the various threads I've read up on! Think I did post up a 'Hello' thread years ago but it seems to have disappeared. I've had the car for about 5 years now and its a proper joy to drive. Thought it was just because it was my first car and having nothing to compare it to, but after driving/having other cars these Hondas are fun! Only recently started modifying it properly now the insurance isnt shafting me! Mod list: VTIS Front Lip &

  13. Hi there, Are your current mirrors heated? I would imagine that its 3 pins for non-heated and 5 pins for heated. The Rover mirrors should work - not sure if they'd be plug and play though, the wires in the plug might need some moving around. I'm sure i've got some Rover mirrors here somewhere.. I'll have a hunt and see what the differences are. Cheers, Dan

  14. Have you got the link to the website so we can have a look? The early Rover mirrors were mostly non electric unless you went for one of the models high up the range. They are a slightly (hardly noticeable) shape to the civics mirrors. Think they weren't as deep as our mirror casings either. The later rover 400/45/MGZS had most of the wiring changed to BMW wiring and connectors, so that could be for the later ones?

  17. Cheers guys, I can only thank the previous owner for the fogs! When I bought the car it came with a spare bumper and these retro fitted in so im guessing he got them from a scrappy. I've seen a pair on ebay though for £120!! Mental money.

  19. Ah ok, not really sure what options I have?? 2nd hand unit that might give up on me or maybe i should look at a decent EBay SS, like a Japspeed? Only using car as my daily drive and it’s been very reliable. Appreciate you taking the time out to reply. Phil.

  20. Priced up a brand new yuasa from Yuasa themselves....£109 + delivery (for the 5000 model which is more amps/heavier duty) Got the 5000 model from Halfords....£91. It was the 3000 that was in her so hoping this one will do better. Hoping to fit it tomorrow.

  24. No, not yet but it doesn't look good. Think a private reg with UBR might be the best I can get. Noticed that B18 UBR is free...
