  1. Hey guys, bought this kit: http://www.tegiwaimports.com/select-car/honda/dc2/suspension/energy-suspension-hyper-flex-poly-bush-kit-integra-96-01.html awhile back with the intention of changing all the bushes but never got round to it. Upgraded to a 350z so I'm selling my kit! The dc2 kit is meant to fit civic mb's after having done the research ages ago. Looking for £130 and can post at cost. Send me a message here or text me: 07456675686
  2. Exhaust centre pipe mb3

    Hey guys, Recently bought a japspeed 4-2-1 manifold for my mb3 (https://www.japspeed.co.uk/honda-civic-4-2-1-d-series-tubular-manifold.html) which said was a direct bolt on fitment to original standard/aftermarket cat/decat. Now I know on my civic the cat was in the manifold but I assumed the bore of the cat would be the same as the rest of the exhaust system (standard). It isn't. Bore of japspeed is 2" and I believe standard is 1.5"/1.75" as it's not a proper fit. I can fit it so it's not blowing but the rattling is hella annoying. Is there a 2" bore centre pipe and backbox (would assume the backbox would need to be the same size as centre pipe) that I can buy relatively cheap? I've tried looking but can only find stuff like m2 motorsport. Is an mb6 standard pipe 2" bore? Just asking because there's a couple of cheap ones on ebay. I would at some point change the rest of the exhaust system but want to fix/do other more important things first! (timing belt, handbrakes cables, etc)
  3. One has blown and they're a pain in the arse to get to but I'm also at work till late tonight. Would be nice to order them tonight to fit them tomorrow. Mb3 if that makes any difference
  4. I've got some standard rear seats in pretty good condition. From memory, there's only a small patch that seems to have been "burnt" on the left seat though it's not massively noticeable. No fron'ts unfortunately. Also, you're welcome to have them. They're just taking up space which I need.
  5. VTIS lip kit - Passenger side wing mirror

    Managed to find the set?
  6. Engine stalling

    Interesting.. Mine idles around 500 too with no issues. On my Haynes manual it says the following: "The idle speed should be D14A2, D15z3, d16y2, d16y3 - 550 rpm +- 50" And for other other d series engines (d15 and d16) and all DOHC models it should be 480 +-50
  7. Hey guys Looking for one of those final touches for my mb... which most definitely is the VTIS lip kit (don't fancy the VTI lip :P) Also, my passenger side wing mirror has a broken hinge so now and again flaps a bit in strong winds/legalspeedsofficer. I believe there are painted pirates black versions? If so, I'd like a pair. If not, just the passenger side. They're currently just matt black. And I'm pretty sure they're the heated type. It's an MB3 if that makes any difference. I live in Watford. Happy to come and collect if nearby or pay for postage obviously.
  8. Rebuilding gearbox, won't go into gears?

    Ok, never mind. Sorted it. It was to do with the little balls and springs... Removed them all, noticed that one of the balls was actually stuck to the end of the bolt with the spring compressed... Tested the gears without them in (not splitting the case... Again!) And they moved very fluidly. Even reverse. Then used the old bolts, springs and balls from my old gearbox, torqued them up and she still goes though the box beautifully. So it was those balls. Good to know anyways... Getting excited now to drive my old civic again!
  9. So yesterday I rebuilt my gearbox. It felt fine and then when I started the car, going left/right didn't feel as smooth as it should. Couldn't get into 2nd at all and first was a bit clunky... 3rd, 4th, 5th and reverse felt fine. Really smooth in fact. So I started the process again and I've taking the box out. Took it all apart and started from scratch. Before I put the cover back on I test left/right feel as if it goes into all the gears smoothly. Feels perfect. Can't get it into reverse but never could. Felt the same when I put my old gearbox back together and that was fine. But when I put the cover on and torque all the bolts, I can't get into any gear. As far as I can tell, nothing has changed other than the cover. So why would doing that make it hard to change gear? Don't want to put it back in until I'm 100% certain it's good to go... So what the hell am I doing wrong? I put everything back in order following this guide and a YouTube video... http://www.d-series.org/forums/transmission-alley/14079-diy-tranny-removal-input-shaft-bearing-change.html#/topics/14079?page=1&_k=2zxw6u
  10. Heater core - where to source?

    Also unavailable... Second hand it is. I guess I'll have to find some time in the future! Ah.... the things we do for ours cars...
  11. Gearbox is fubar - where to source new one?

    I replaced the clutch August last year... Though I have a feeling the clutch may be fubar from when I was trying to not stop/brake down in the middle of rush hour in Guildford after a road had been closed down... Right smack bang in the middle... Will see when I take it out tomorrow. I also took out the gearbox to replace the input shaft bearing just before new years but was sent the wrong size bearings... Then this happened. And since the bearing is a common failure on these Honda's I'd thought I'd play devil's advocate and replace the bearing on the new gearbox. Glad I did as the one in the new gearbox had failed too! thankfully the rest is in good nick. Smooth gear operation. Now to fit it in tomorrow morning Glad I saved myself several hours for £15 now...
  12. Gearbox is fubar - where to source new one?

    Well I managed to get one for £85 with 80k miles on it. Going to replace the main shaft bearing anyways since it seems to be a regular failure and I don't fancy removing the gearbox ever again!
  13. Heater core - where to source?

    So my heater core is leaking. Only slightly but I can smell antifreeze through the fans. I know you basically have to remove the centre console among other things but can't seem to find where to buy a heater core... I'd rather have a new one rather than getting a second hand one from a scrap car. Surely they can't be too much since a new rad is like £50...
  14. Gearbox is fubar - where to source new one?

    Cheers guys. What price am I looking to pay? Cheapest I've found on ebay is 150 delivered... Am I looking at cheaper prices through breaker yards? And, err... do I need to take the gearbox off myself or do they do that? May be a silly question but never used breakers before...
