    I was thinking of people in the back seat putting their feet on it / under it. I suppose it rests on the raised floor part too...

      Yes, it only has one bolt, and it is raised slightly, but you have to hit it pretty good to get it to move. So someone resting their foot on it, isn’t going to move it much.

        Newest issue I’m having right now is the engagement point has since went to the floor and I am not quite sure why. I have issues trying to get it in first or second gear but have no issues with 3-5. I have bled and bled the clutch with no sign of bubbles or air. Recently the slave has started sounding like this and the fluid is dark even when I put fresh brake fluid in it.


        The slave only has maybe 3k miles on it and the clutch less then 5k. I may take the slave off and regrease the arm. Is this a sign of a bad throw out? I used timken brand which is the same Honda uses.

          lol....... sounds like a dolphin. Ya, you could grease the touch points inside and out, but I don't think that's going to be it......
          It sounds like the plunger inside is fubar, causing a noise / alignment issues maybe (causing the creak), and rubber / fluid mixing causing black fluid....

            Ya I’m not going to waste time with it. I have the receipt and it has a lifetime warranty. I’ll be going to advance auto parts to swap it for a new one and see if it fixes it. If not then next will be the throw out bearing I think.

              So took advantage of the lifetime warranty and got a new slave. Installed it, bled it and decided just for the heck of it to check the lock nut on the adjuster.

              I reached down and felt it was loose and knew what my problem was…… Why do our brains always go for the most complicated solution vs starting with the simplest? Engagement point is back to normal and clutch disengages and re-engages just fine.

              Also finally got rid of my eBay hub for my quick release and installed an NRG short hub. Which then allowed me to get my horn back, since the backing is made of conductive material.

              I’m not going to lie, I’m super excited and happy to have a horn again. I’ve been without a horn for 12 years! I got tired of people merging into me and all I could do was rev loudly. But that doesn’t get the same attention as a horn.

              But I’ve also forgot how sissy our horns sound lol.

                haha....... Ohhh my. haha. Well, glad you got it working. The horn haha. I was driving around with only one horn for 8+ years. I think it was the "low" sound too. Made it sound like a 1930 whatever or the road runner.

                  So after 5 months of waiting I finally got my last gift my wife bought for my birthday,








                  It's even heated!


                  After looking at the picture I see I forgot to vacuum up all the wire clippings from the auto head lights and push button harness. So I'll get on that today. The interior is kind of in a weird phase right now as I have a dark grey leather seat in the back from a CL, the 93 EX grey passenger seat, and now the Bride Euroster seat in the driver seat. I plan to get another Bride seat for the passenger side but that will be a bit later as they are a pretty penny.

                  I also finally got my hands on some 08 TL rims, these will be my "winter" set up once I get my dream rims, hopefully sometime next year. But I have been hunting for these for years and finally found a set for a reasonable price.



                  Also had the RL calipers milled, Mark got some decals that match the same font as the Acura on it, that says Honda instead. So I plan to paint them and then throw the decal on and clear over it. But that will probably not be for a bit. Yes I know the Brake pad is on backwards on the left one. The machinist put them on backwards.


                  Besides the DIY I created this is how the Accord is sitting now. Motor is still running strong and I'm happy I'm off 93 octane as it is now selling $3.99 a gallon vs E-85 which is only $2.79 a gallon.

                  Also Anyone know where to find Seat covers for bride seats, Kind of want to put a barrier between me and the seat.
