  1. 2004 TSX 6s Manual: Underbody too rusty to fix rack & pinion

    1st Gen - Problems and Fixes
    I need a new rack & pinion, since mine has been leaking pretty badly. Took it to the shop that supposedly handles stuff the other guys won't. They told me the underbody is too rusty to take apart, there are just too many bolts that are rusted over on the exhaust, subframe, tie rods, bushings...
  2. Rust inside of door

    1st Gen - Problems and Fixes
    I've been finding these little pieces of rusted metal on the rear door sill every couple of weeks. Today I removed the rear door panels and found rusted pieces of metal along the inside bottom edge of the door. Here's a picture of what I collected from both rear doors. I removed it with a...
  3. Buying Used TSX - Rust Under Hood

    I am a newbie to this website, though I have been reading posts for quite some time now. I am looking to buy a new TSX. It will be my first car purchase.

What worries me more are the spots (tiny for now) where rust is popping from under never damaged paint. Any advise where to...

  6. 3m clear protective coating

    1st Gen - Car Care, ...
    Just got a 2005 PWP and am thinking about the clear coating for the hood and bumper after seeing the little dings and rust spots on all the ones I looked at. Wondering what anyone's experience has been with paint color fading, self installation, etc. Its pricey but worth it to me after seeing...
  7. PWP/White TSX paint & rust

    1st Gen - Problems and Fixes
    I'm in search of a used PWP right now and am finding that all of them that I see seem to have paint defects from small rust spots to rust speckles, to doors/hoods/bumpers that don't match bordering parts or yellowish discolorations (fairly large areas). None have said that they have had body...
