    Spoiler Fitting

    Another spoiler related question: I saw an Mb2/3 in the scrappy with the spoiler missing but the screws/bolts were still there, I couldn't seem to get them out the boot lid though, they seemed stuck like there's a washer both sides. Just to confirm, if I gave them a couple good turns with a spanner/knock them through would they come out or is there a weird way to do it? Not sure if I'm just being a tool.

    Mud Guards

    You know I've messaged over 4 people on eBay breaking MB's, all said they have mud guards, all let me down by not replying or gone quiet, and had no reply off a further couple people all about mud guards.. Why are these so hard to get?! People on eBay just don't want to sell. Weird to me.

    Spoiler Fitting

    Thanks for the reply! Some good info there which I'll use. I can see the dimples that have to be drilled through, guessing they're about 10mm or so? On the spoiler I have there's also a red guiding peg on one side and on the other side is where the wires come out, so 3 holes will have to be drilled at each side? I think I can guess where the wires have to go through now then, but where is the point where they plug in? Or did you cut into the existing wiring somehow? (Imagine it would be fiddly) Yeah the guy I got the spoiler off was local and forgot the bolts. I have a couple of bolts from a spoiler I got off eBay but that whole thing was a mess. Probably get some new.

    Spoiler Fitting

    Hi I'm just wondering if anybody here has experience with fitting the OEM/standard Mb's spoiler onto one that originally didn't have one? Mb2/4 etc Got a spoiler with brake light wiring all complete etc and I'm wondering how to go about it or to bother at all. - Any tips for drilling screw holes in the boot lid for the spoiler? This is what's making me not want to do it to be honest. Scared I'll mess it up. Need the bolts too. - Is there anywhere for the brake light wiring to plug into on the MB2's? I've taken the boot interior out and looked and can't see where it would go to. Any tips/pictures etc would help too. Thanks!

    Mud Guards

    Still no luck on these. Anybody know of any other models with mud guards that will fit?

    Mud Guards

    Hi, desperately looking for a full set of mud guards for the MB's, preferably new or in good condition. If not then I would take the rears only, maybe somebody has taken them off to fit a VTIS lip? Arranged to buy some from somebody on eBay but once again an eBay seller is letting me down. Have the front ones fitted so feel kind of stupid without rear ones also. But the front ones are quite worn so wouldn't mind replacements. Thanks!

    Remote Locking Fob/Key

    I think so? Not sure at all, I just know mine does (did) have the 2 button infra red type but the key fob stopped working years ago & mine's a 1.4i.

    Remote Locking Fob/Key

    So it was just a new key that you got linked up to the car? Thanks anyway, I'll check it out.

    Remote Locking Fob/Key

    Looking for some help please people, like many others the terrible Infra Red remote locking fob has stopped working for my car. I got the remote from the ex-ex owner of my car (been in the family since new) and it was totally disconnected having not been used for years. not lighting up even with new batteries, absolutely dead and I've since lost it anyway. If the opportunity was there to buy a brand new remote/fob, how easy is it to get this coded to your car's code? I imagine it will be a Honda dealership jobby, but what is it likely to set me back? Bearing in mind I will have a brand new never used remote? Thanks! (I know an aftermarket central locking system would no doubt be cheaper but there's also all the wiring involved and paying somebody to do it!)

    VTiS mats (ad other bits)

    No problem, I think from the look of it the VTI-S logo just replaces the 'Civic' logo that is on the standard ones? Looks pa like the same size/shape anyway. The other 3 mats look identical and plain.

    VTiS mats (ad other bits)

    Some went on eBay for little over £10 the other day, I spent double that for a set of standard ones! Probably be years before more show up on there..

    Fog lights for Civic MB3

    There's some cheap ones on eBay that I've read about people on here using. But I don't know how good they would be if you didn't have fog lights installed from the factory. I've been wondering for ages how to fit them as well. I don't have a clue how to wire them up to the original switch etc. That would be the ideal way to do it but maybe need an OEM loom.

    Rear LCA Questions

    Ah yes I'm with you now. To be honest wouldn't have even acknowledged the first one I'd just have assumed it isn't the right one! Yeah I wouldn't buy from eBay to be honest and all of those just look a bit unreliable and tacky. I just don't know any companies that sell them really? They look like the closest ones to what I'm after. Because they're not an exact swap, are they likely to affect suspension or the wheel at all?
