  • Greetings,

    Your post is very informative, thank you.

    I would like to ask about the 2006 Civic center console
    removal and issues.

    I would like to install the AUX jack for my LX. The
    installation instruction called for the removal of the
    center console, where the transmission control and the
    parking brake handle located. There is a total of 5 clips
    to be removed. Following is my questions:

    (1) Will I need a special tool for the clips removal
    or just gently yank the console platic housing out?.

    (2) In the installation instruction, the clips look likes
    that they are part of the plastic console housing. If
    they are then how can one of your clip was falling off
    deep inside the housing assembly bellow?.

    Thank you in advance for your help,

    Best Regards,

    so I understand, the whole car vibrates when at about 1500 RPMs? I've had the radio on and I haven't been able to hear or notice really anything.

    I truly hope the problem gets fixed, given the company has seemingly hit the jackpot w/ these cars.

    Yeah, the cap is well tightened....

    The error message has disappeared in the meantime....

    Emlo,

    No, it is not that the whole car vibrates. It is really a resonating sound like something rattling. I can hear it even with the radio on so I am thinking you don't have it. Consider yourself lucky!

    I believe that after the error message is displayed it takes several miles to come off. Meaning that if the cap is loose and the message is displayed it may not disappear immediately after you tighten the cap.

    I doubt you have anything to worry about :)

    Guys,

    Taking my car in this saturday morning to have the AC checked. It very well could be fine but I feel it takes a while to cool the car after venting hot air from the interior. Will see what they, most likely blow me off and say nothing is wrong.

    Also, on the interior, passenger side, where the seat belt comes out the side of the car inbetween the two doors, there is a seam where two plastic panels meet about half way up from the floor. Mine pops out every few days and if I push it back in, just pops back out again, about 1/4" and looks real ugly. Will show them this to.

    Other than that, approaching 2000 miles, everything else seems to be okay. I don't think I have the lug bug as I would have complained already.

    Car feels to have loosened and settled in a bit which is a good thing.

    Just an update :)

    Maybe I don't have that problem--I haven't noticed any rattling or anything, w/ or w/o radio on.

    I hope Honda can fix this issue for you!
  • The intake is AEM Cold Air Intake. It was a pretty involved installation. You have to take off the left front wheel and peel back the inner fender liner, and even then your hands need to get in a couple spaces they just don't want to fit into. It took a while but it was worth it. I definitely have more torque off the line. I kept accidentally chirping the tires from stoplights until I got used to it. It's mated with the stock exhaust so it's barely audible at idle, but it makes a nice throaty roar as you rev through the gears.

    They claim it improves mpg. I'm getting the same 32mpg I was before, but I've been driving it harder so they may be right. I'm very happy with it.

    Haaa 2006civiclx

    Remove the auto. console was a snap, very easy to romove. it.
    1. pull the brake foward
    2. move the driver stick to "D". Make sure your foot on brake. ( I kinder remove the console, then turn the engine on, move the stick to "D", then move the console out, then move the the stick to "P", cut the engine) Whatever work for you.

    3. Pop the plastic console by using your fingernails under the edge and lift straight up. Start from the back and move toward the dashboard.

    Note: I don't use the flat screwdriver because it create dents. ;)
  • Hi all,

    Looks like I have my first problem with my 4 1/2 month old Civic EX AT. Took it to a quick oil change joint and they encouraged me to have an "oil leak" checked out by the dealer. Dealer says it's not oil but power steering fluid, leaking from a defective plastic elbow. They said they recently worked on another Civic with the same problem and that there's a TSB about it. Part ordered. The leak is minor enough to let me keep driving til it arrives. Thought I'd pass this along in case others are interested.

    Second issue... I noticed my car's VIN# is within the group that "could" have defective engine block sealing bolts. Wonder if I should ask the dealer to have a look at them, or would that be a bad idea unless an actual oil leak begins?
  • Thanks again doan4u,

    I will use your instruction. The parts order are in the mail, I should receive them before Friday June 23, 2006.

    Hope I can do the installation next weekend and let you
    know. Stay tune!

    Best Regards,

    Can you advise how to find out if a vin is within the range you mentioned about the defective engine block sealing bolts?

    I would like to know if my car is within that range as well?

    Thanks for passing the info along about the steering fluid leak!
  • Kero1,

    I copied and pasted this from a posting I saw a few days ago at another web site... I don't recall the site and can't testify to the veracity of the info. Hoping others will have seen this info as well to verify. Here's the pasted text I saved...

    Engine Oil Leaks
    SYMPTOM
    The engine leaks oil.
    PROBABLE CAUSE
    Some engine block sealing bolts may have been
    mismanufactured, causing the engine oil to leak when
    the engine is running.
    VEHICLES AFFECTED
    4-Door:
    From VIN1HGFA1...6L000001 thru
    1HGFA1...6L058027
    From VIN2HGFA1...6H500001 thru
    2HGFA1...6H505400
    From VINJHMFA1...6S000001 thru
    JHMFA1...6S005042
    2-Door:
    From VIN2HGFG1...6H500001 thru
    2HGFG1...6H523216
    The oil leaks can be in up to four places:
    • The 24-mm sealing bolt on the timing chain end of
    the engine.
    • The 24-mm sealing bolt on the transmission end of
    the engine.
    • The 20-mm sealing bolt behind the alternator.
    • The 20-mm sealing bolt behind the power steering
    pump.
    take your car to your nearest dealer for repairs
  • I'm looking to buy a 2007 Civic in Fall 2006. I'd like the car delivered (available for pick-up) early to mid-December. Does anyone have any experience ordering a Civic? I've asked at two dealerships and got what I consider to be wildly different answers. When should I order it?

    I'm planning on ordering an EX Sedan with navigation. Thanks!

    ASK TO SEE THEIR "INCOMING" LIST AND ORDER FROM THAT AND YOU'LL KNOW ALMOST EXACTLY WHEN. IF THEY WONT SHOW YOU THIS LIST DONT BUY FROM THEM. FRANK KENT IN FORT WORTH DOES THIS AND I GOT MY CAR EXACTLY WHEN I EXPECTED IT. THE SALESGUY WAS MARK KNITTLE IN THEIR USED CAR DEPARTMENT BUT HE CAN DELIVER NEW AS WELL. I WANTED EXACTLY WHAT YOU DO AND I WANTED IT IN SILVER OR WHITE.

    ANOTHER DEALER WAS SUPER NASTY AND RUDE SO I WALKED OUT. DONT PUT UP WITH ANYTHING LIKE WHAT YOU GET AT FRANK KENT.

    I REMEMBER MY DAD TAKING DELIVER OF A NEW FORD FROM THIS DEALERSHIP IN 1939. STILL OWNED BY THE KENT FAMILY.

    Please stop shouting...it's very difficult to read. Always use lower case when typing a messege. Easier on the eyes bud.

    The Sandman :D
  • mrmusicmrmusic Posts: 15
    ill type ase i please. this "shouting" silliness is like 7 year old girls telling each other not to step on cracks in the sidewalk. try to act your age. silly silly silly.

    the radio copy i do is in all caps for easier reading....in 50 years ive never had a professional broadcaster feel it was shouting. but then we dont have that many 7 year olds in the profession.

    im well over 70 and it hurts to type in 2 cases.

    You cannot really order one. They are going to build the same cars regardless of whether you buy one or not. You can put down a deposit if you want for the dealer to hold one or swap with another dealer.
