Ladipo has been re-opened. I've got no idea of the price, but you may call this dude. He sells Honda body parts at Ladipo, and he helps me source for things I need to buy (and their cost) before I even go to the mkt at all. If he doesn't have, he can help you look for it amongst fellow traders. If the headrests are not available in the market at that moment, he will tell you as soon as they are available.
Of course, you know you'll have to beat the price down when you eventually get to the mkt yourself.

He is called 'M.P'
You can reach him on 07032834881.

Cheers!

The story

Before I changed the engine, I discovered that the car shaked violently when the ac was turned on and gets worse when the reverse gear is engaged. That I think started when I changed the AC compressor.

This continued with the new engine. Each time this happens, I noticed that the RPM goes close to 0. Mechanics have tried to raise the RPM but the sound continued.
One morning, I noticed that the sound and vibration was on even when the Ac was not on. NB, this sound disppears on top speed

One mechanic removed the rear sensor on the throttle body (what the mechanics called the injector mouth) and the vibration stopped for while stationary but the rpm was always high and driving was unplesant. I was advised to change the throttle body which i did. Vibration stopped momentarily and started all over again. I changed the throttle body again apparently because they had broken the knob that is used to rregulate the RPM.

Still no soilution.

I also changed the inner shaft cup that fits into the gearbox at one point.
Anyone has an idea what is going on? Any suggestions please?

I discovered that my two fans were connected directly so that both fans work on turning on the ignition. This has been rectified

Try checking your IAC(idle air control valve)
Get you air intake checked for leaks or just change. Change your airfilter.
If it still occurs u might wanna get ur fuel lines checked also.

Hope this helps.

Nice tips. Tnx. Can u help with more tips like
1. The steering of my 2008 Accord vibrates esp when my speed gets 2 about 80km/h n above.
2. When is it advised 2 replace timing belt and plugs? I have just above 40k on d trip counter.
Tnx.

I had this problem recently with my 2007 Honda Accord. It vibrates when you step on the brake at that speed right? Exactly the same thing. Whenever I speed up to 80km/h and step on the brake pedal I feel vibrations on my Steering wheel. The culprit was the front rotor(s), i.e. the brake disc. That's what you get when they become warped. What my mechanic did was to replace both the front discs and the vibration stopped. So, my guy, change your front brake discs (left and right) and don't forget to change the pads as well. Good luck!

Before making any changes, he should first confirm that his engine sittings are in order and fuel pump is working well. These can also cause serious vibrations. Cheers.

I have a 2003 Honda Accord V6. I unknowingly entered a pot hole at a very low speed. Few minutes after my TCS light came on and remained so. I turned off the TCS button to no avail. A day later, the brakes light are on permanently. I ran a diagnostics and the following results displayed:

B1155: Gauge Control Module lost communication with Comb headlight message
B1156: Gauge Control Module lost communication with combination switch control
B1157: Gauge Control Module lost communication with Multiple Integrated Control Unit (MICU)
B1559: Gauge Control Module lost communication with Multiple Integrated Control Unit (Poor Switch Message)
B1160: Gauge Control Module lost communication with Dr Multi Dr Lk message

11-01: Torque Control Clutch (TCC) Solenoid Valve A Malfunction
12-01: Front Right Wheel Speed Sensor malfunction
13-01: left front wheel speed sensor open or shut
14-01: left front wheel speed sensor malfunction
15-01: Right rear wheel speed sensor open or shut
16-01: Right rear wheel speed sensor malfunction
17-01: left rear wheel speed sensor open or shut
18-01: left rear wheel speed sensor malfunction

Please I’ll appreciate useful information how to get these issues resolved and how to get in touch with a reliable Honda technician if need be. Are there things I can just do on my own like twitching something? What will my technician require that I do that isn’t required to resolve these issues that will suggest I flee from him?

I recently ordered for a 2003 Honda Accord EX and the road to where I stay is very bad and gets flooded when it rains.

What should I look out for? Secondly is the EOD a reliable car in terms of performance and durability?

I use the 04 version of yours, plus the description of where you stay depicts my own area too - Ibafo (not sure you're familiar?).

I got the car last year, due to driving in the rain (flooded and heavily mudded roads) the car now looks like I got it 100yrs back - I will advice when it rains do not drive that car, leave it till the road is ply-able else you risk spending on shaft(C.V joints) all the time, your engine hitting the ground/dragging the engine through water which is bad, ball joints problem, steering arms problem, decolouration of the body to mention a few. I've had to stop driving whenever it rains.

The problems I listed might seem cheap but when it runs non-stop for months with other expenses on the table you'll understand cheesy

All in all, the car is a very solid car if properly maintained and attention is paid to every detail.

Enjoy

Bros it is best to shelve the effizy to be able to enjoy your car better. No, I've never had to change the brainbox and I pray that never happens but the expenses I've made on that car's front legs alone ehn?! Or was it the abrupt removal of the C.V joint on the front while going up and down hill-like pot-holes? I'm not the only one going through the road damage induced problems, even people with supposed jeeps like crv and the likes! Nor be beans baba. cheesy

Sir, replace your fuel pump before it leaves you stranded at night or while travelling inter-state.
And make sure you get an original one not the chinese-made new ones o.

lol. Small world (or not). I stay here too, and I never drive when it rains!
Anyway, I was going to ask for pointers on this heavy-vibrating/lowRPM-when-stationary problem as my car( 97-2000 Honda Prelude) developed it recently. So I'll go through the responses here before seeing my mechanic over the weekend.
Another niggling problem I've had for about a year now is slight wobble on both rear wheels, at all speeds. I can see it through my side mirrors( now so visible that other motorists have called my attention to it). This does not particularly affect the stability but I can feel it when I take turns at moderate speed. No noises though. Over this period of time, I've changed practically everything connected( stabilizer linkages, bushings, low-arms or so, practically overhauled all of the back and front wheel assembly). Countless wheel alignment/balancing e.t.c. Problem would seem solved only to re-emerge in a week or two.
I already decided to continue 'managing' it like that but better safe than sorry I guess. Please, any suggestions?
A friend suggested I change all 4 tyre wheels/rims as they might be slightly warped? Maybe I will do that, although I'm somewhat attached to the current ones.
