The Hondas do have at the back suspension arms which are holding the wheels,Big suspension bushing,which when they snap off or cracked,are causing clank noises because are not holding enough the rear axle. on the other hand the vehicle loose the tracking as a result to cause wear and tear of the rear tires as well. Ask from your local mechanic to examine your car.

I cannot open the bonnet from the lever in the car,it has broken off.any ideas how to open the bonnet otherwise,many thanks

We had a 2001 ford 1 ton diesel with the same issue. The plastic hand knob had snapped off. fortunetly we were able to grab onto the cable with a pair of vise grips and pull on the cable enough. Needless to say the entire mechanism was replaced right away. See if there is some way that you can grab onto the release cable and give it a good yank

Oil leaking from the box on the rod that connects

No that should just be your transmission for self propelled. Most likely belt driven off motor, with level connected to cable to select drive. . Probabaly a seal leaking on the driveshaft. You could either try and replace seall or replace transmission

How do I replace the throttle cable of the Honda nxr 125 bros

Remove the seat, tank, and airbox. Follow throttle cable from the grip to the carbs seeing which way it is routed. Unscrew throttle housing and note which way the cable goes. Make sure when you replace the cable there is free play in the cable. Do not make the cable tight. Give slack in the throttle. Tighten. Twist throttle 10 times to make sure that there is no binding and a good snap! Chaz Moto DC

Honda Harmony II HRR216TDA drive clutch cable snapped. Need advice on how to access transmission box to change cable. Owner's manual does not address this level of repair and schematic obtained from local...

First put the machine on the side with the muffler facing the floor . Right behind the rear wheel you have a 10mm bolt that you have to remove and look for another 2 10mm bolts holding the plate that you remove the first bolt (one should be at the bottom and the other one on the side) .
Slide that plate out of the machine and now you be able to see the belt that goes to the transmission and also the drive clutch cable.
Hope this help .
