  • About me
    Hi, I'm Dave, the founder and owner of Civic5.com. I have been into cars my whole life, spending time restoring classic 70's fords then moving into the Honda scene. Have now been a fan of Honda's for years.

    So, bit more about me. I'm an old git, and was with Dawn (aka Civic5 Moderator crazzzydawn in the forum) for 21 years, married to her for 17 of those years. She helped me set up and run the club and site from the start, and it was Dawn that got me into Honda's! Sadly, she passed away after a very brave fight with cancer (Jan 2013) and is very much missed by myself and a lot of the members here. Her spirit in the club lives on in her car, her beloved Civic Aerodeck ES known as "DD" in the forum (Dawns Deck). It's a car that's been tastefully modded, and one I will keep for ever.

    Recently, I met my new partner Gayle (aka Gayle in the forum) and she has been amazing! She's totally turned my life around, and makes me happy. Luckily, she's a petrol head too! She's also become a big part of Civic5, and loves the Honda scene now too! We got married in June 2017.
    Anyways, enough about me! Thanks for taking the time to read my profile, and welcome to Civic5

  4. Selling spares repair

    Hi Garry. moved your ad here to the correct section. As per classifieds ads rules, you need to ad photos otherwise the ad will be removed. Pictures always sell a car mate
  5. Brake lights all out

    No probs mate, least it's going to be an easy fix. 10 years eh? That's almost as long as we've had our deck.......bet you end up with another one somewhere down the line, there's just something about them!
  6. Brake lights all out

    Hi mate. First off try the bulbs as even the high level one is a bulb. If that doesnt work , itll be the brake light switch at the top of the brake pedal. Its easy enough to see if you put the drivers seat back as far as itll go and recline it then you can lie on it and see up under the dash. It might just need adjusting a little bit (mine did on my MA8) or it could be the switch needs replacing. Either way both an easy fix but get it done asap or you might find another vehicle in your boot that wasnt invited!

  10. wanted vti-s v,w or x plate

    Getting hard to find a decent low miles one now mate.

    It sounds like youve looked in all the right areas for the culprit mate. Without actually hearing it its hard to say for sure what the fault is but if you can get the parts such as track rod ends and stuff cheap enough id stsrt with those. Always best to start with the cheapest probable cause then work your eay through. Worst case scenario is the rack itself, although would expect the noise to be there when stationary too. Does it appear to be more to one side of the car? Also look for any signs of rubbing on the various parts.
