Honda Civic Concept at 2015 New York International Auto Show
Today Honda unveiled its ultra-sporty Civic Concept at the New York
International Auto Show as the brand prepares to launch its completely
reimagined 10th-Generation Civic models beginning this fall. With a sharper
focus on spirited performance and class-leading versatility, the new Civic
lineup will include Civic Sedan, Coupe and Si models along with the return
of the Civic hatchback, followed by the launch of a new Civic Type-R as the
performance flagship of the Civic lineup. The new Civic also will be the
first U.S. model to apply new VTEC® turbo engines from the company's Earth Dreams
Technology™ powertrain series.
"The new Civic will be, flat out, the most dynamic, the most
technologically advanced and the most refined and stylish Civic we've ever
made," said John Mendel, executive vice president, Automobile Division,
American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "In every way, this will be an epic Civic."
The Civic Concept provides a tantalizing glimpse forward to the thrilling
design direction for the all-new 10th-generation Civic lineup launching in
the U.S. this fall. Featuring a longer wheelbase and lower, wider stance,
the new Civic emphasizes its aggressive personality and the engaging
experience it will provide behind the wheel. Proportionally it boasts a
longer hood, a shorter front overhang, a more set-back greenhouse and a
shorter rear deck, lending the Civic a more athletic and "in motion"
The low and wide proportions are underscored by its more aggressive
wheel-to-body relationship and pronounced fender arches. Its sporty and
expressive face is highlighted by bright new LED headlights flanking the
"Flying H" Honda grille which is supported by deeply sculpted lower air
"Charismatic, connected and athletic, our goal was to create a design that
is emotional and sporty yet with a sense of timelessness and simplicity,"
said Guy Melville-Brown, Exterior Design Leader of the Civic concept, Honda
R&D Americas, Inc. "In this we set out to create a vehicle that goes beyond
the superficial and embraces the very philosophy of what a true Civic
should be; it’s a real game changer."
The 10th-generation Civic is based on a compact platform that targets
benchmark levels of efficiency, dynamic performance, safety and
manufacturing productivity. Leveraging this new platform in conjunction
with new Earth Dreams Technology™ powertrains – including a new
1.5-liter VTEC® turbo engine with
direct injection, a short-shifting 6-speed manual transmission, and a new,
more sporty and efficient continuously variable transmission (CVT) – the
Civic will target class-leading fuel economy ratings and fun-to-drive
performance with near-luxury levels of cabin quietness and ride refinement.
The new Civic will also target class-leading levels of safety performance
and will offer the Honda Sensing™ suite of advanced safety and
driver-assistive technologies, including Lane Departure Warning, Forward
Collision Warning, Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, Adaptive Cruise Control and
Honda LaneWatch™, along with Honda's next-generation Advanced
Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure.
The new Civic marks the first time that global development of both the
sedan and coupe models is being led by a North American R&D team, with
design led by a team from Honda's Los Angeles design studio and development
centered in the company's Raymond, Ohio vehicle development center. The
North American version of the Civic Sedan will be produced in Greensburg,
Indiana, and in Alliston, Ontario. The Civic Coupe and Si models will also
be manufactured in Alliston. The VTEC turbo engine will be produced in Anna, Ohio with
engines also produced in Alliston. The CVT will be produced in Russells
Point, Ohio. Together, these four Honda plants have invested in new
equipment, processes and training to prepare for new Civic production,
which will use domestic and globally sourced parts. Production of the
five-door hatchback will take place at the company's Swindon, UK plant.
Honda is in the midst of a series of major product launches that began with
the freshened CR-V – 2015 Motor Trend Sport Utility of the Year – and
continues with the spring launch of the all-new 2016 Honda HR-V crossover
and the summer launch of the redesigned 2016 Honda Pilot SUV. This will be
followed by the new Civic release beginning this fall.

How to remove a Civic Transmission 2005
A quick overview of how I removed the transmission from my 2005 Honda
Civic LX for a new clutch. Car had 154k on it, the clutch looked like it
could have gone another 40 to 50k.

be a lot heavier than it really was. next is to remove the brake lines and
replace them before the RHD subframe comes in the mail.
Front Subframe Removal Tips
Not intended to be a step by step DIY, but just showing the general things
you encounter when doing this job.
Subframe repair video
I was looking around for information on how to repair a common problem when
removing the rear subframe from a classic mini and couldn't find one. I
decided to create my own video to help others.
The rear mounting bolts shear off very easily but are part of the
subframe. This rear subframe was fine except for the snapped bolt so I
thought I would repair it. It was an easy repair and can be done with a
welder, tungsten carbide burr and some skill.
2016 Honda Sportiest Civic - World Debute - NY 2015
NEW YORK --2016 Honda Civic upstaged the New York Auto Show on Wednesday
with a sharp new redesign of its Civic and vows to take its popular compact
car back to its performance roots.
"This is the return of the sporty Civic," says John Mendel, Honda's
executive vice president in the U.S. The company also announced a new turbocharged engine and more variants of
the design -- including a performance version and hatchback -- than ever
The 10th-generation appearance abandons the cab-forward design that the
Civic has had for years to give it a long hood and sense of more power. The
new one is a little longer and wider. In front there are new LED running
lights and in back, a new wrap-around taillight design. Yet even with the
changes, the car is still has the unmistakable look of a Civic.
The goal was to create "the most charismatic, most ambitious and most
fun-to-drive and sportiest Civic we've ever made," says Guy Melville-Brown,
who led the U.S. design team in the creation of the car expected to sell
around the world.

Replacing a Subframe and PS Rack 1999 Pontiac Grand Am - EricTheCarGuy
I pulled this one out of the past from about a year ago. The rack had
broken loose from this sub frame and as a result the rack AND the subframe
needed to be replaced. I hated the lighting in this but at least it gives
a good overview of the process.
