  • 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

    CHEAP Civic Aerodeck

    Climair are the best in my opinion mate. I've had both those and the team Hekkos and the quality and fit of the climairs are so much better. The Hekkos pop up on eBay often, the climairs tend to be mostly had from the climair website. If you want the rears too, type in Rover 400 if the civic ones aren't there.

    Glad to hear she's being saved mate. Changing the arms etc will also make her feel a lot nicer to drive. Looking forward to seeing her on the road again

    Once the nut has been undone and the C clip removed, you should be able to wiggle it loose then pull down to remove it. If there's a lot of corrosion/crud around it this will probably be whats holding it. I take it it's the bracket that's attached to the car, where the metal brake line joins the rubber flexi hose?

    Does sound strange that it is constantly going low on the dipstick. Check the sump as these do tend to become corroded now due to the age of our civics. Look for signs of oil on the driveway or where you park. If no signs, then the oil has to be going somewhere. The B series engines do use oil sometimes, but the D series are generally fine although the mileage the engine has done is obviously a factor. If high mileage, then it could be burning oil due to wear. Does the oil light come on when you turn the ignition on, then go off as normal? Just checking the oil light is working. The amount of oil it is going through is a worry though.

    The story of my MA8!

    Nice work on those calipers and how's the extra 5 bhp feeling? Lol
  7. Try euro car parts or Lings Honda, they should have them. If they don't, it may have to come from a Honda dealership.
