And the good fortune comes to an end! After a novice track session- 30mins and a 120miles round trip to Bas Vegas she is now not a happy girl.


Had her up on standa lst night, sounds like the wheel bearing on the drivers side rear is on it way out, and possibly the gearbox shaft bearings.

So time to start buying more parts!

Going to grab the bearings from Tegiwa with the NTN stamp. Or the Timken ones

Hopefully a simple fix!

The gearbox bearings are a little more trouble...

Unlucky pal at least its not engine related, it dose sound like the noise i had when my wheel bearing went, quick fix possibly hub nut loose. i also opted to put in some arp wheel studs when i changed the bearing out

Gearbox i would just go down the replacement route and rebuild the whiney one when you get chance

hope you get it sorted without to much down time

I am not going to lie - I am happy as larry! Took the car to Redhill Honda, they gave her a general health check, checked the hub nuts, checked and compared the diff play against the other cars there....and then retorqued the rear wheel nuts. Problem solved.

1. I am pretty stupid and missed the obvious.
2. Martin @ Redhill was right - start with the simple and the obvious!
3. Dan aka (TangoVtec) suggested they worked them selves loose as I had the wheels fully refurbed in Jan, with the heat from the track day the paint most likely softened and caused the slight play.

Either way - HAPPY DAYS!

Now back to that long list of jobs!

Not much going on - a tale of head bashing as the much revered BYS rails was purchased from Matt of Turbo and SC fame on FB. Arrived duly put it on and what a difference in seating. It effectively lowers the seat base - more at the rear than the front - but for me - it really did make a difference in the seating position.

But with all the good comes the bad. I can now no longer move the seat forward or backwards....everything is a compromise! Will remove and see what the issue is this weekend as well as trying to fit the fog light and facelift tweeter pods.

And I think I want some wheels....17" with decent yoko rubber...

Nothing done so far - just more bits ordered!
2 of these pulley bearings : https://www.bearingboys.co.uk/SKF-Ba...-x-12mm-1889-p
1 of these Contitech serpentine belt : https://www.carparts4less.co.uk/cp4l/c/Honda_S2000_2.0_2000/p/car-parts/belts-chains-and-tensioners/engine-parts/car-drive-belt/?202770585&1&71962440264d22d4a2b111df00286c0ebb742 c41&000108

And the drivers side speaker isn't working....awesome.

I fitted a new bearing to the idler from your source, very easy, just gently pressed out with a socket and wood in the jaws as I heard the pulley can crack, all cleaned, a bit of grease applied then pressed back in.

My auto tensioner was fine strangely (same bearing) so didn't do that one

MOT time and she passed with no advisories! Not bad for nearly 19 years!
Oil service with new front discs, HEL lines, Brembo pads all round. The NSF caliper was found to be seized so was duly replaced with a reconditioned one!
SRS light extinguised because of my cack handedness when refitting the steering wheel from RobinA3 earlier in the year.
New fog light brackets installed.

A few jobs down - lots to go!
