Hello folks, possibly the wrong thread but feels like a rebuild...

My 2010 6MT EX has just done 110,000 so im starting to look at major service items. Just wanted to see if anyone can think of things I should really do to the car now Ive hit this mileage.

So far I have:

New Front Discs/pads
New Rear discs/pads
Changed Oil and filter
Changed M/T Oil
Flushed and changed coolant
New air filter
New pollen/cab filter
Removed and cleaned throttle body
HDS Idle/Crankshaft postion/ throttle body relearn and installed "Newest" update (Honda tech told me the HDS installed an update to the car but didnt give me anymore details. Apparantly HDS does this automatically.
Removed, blasted and powder coated all engine brackets/fluid brackets etc to help remove rust etc

Still to do is replace battery (no issues with it, just hit the 5 year mark) and change aux belt.

Should I also do clutch/brake/power steering fluid or "if it aint broke..."

Was thinking about removing the injectors and having them cleaned. Again, havent noticed any issues.

Only problem I have with the car is it can be very stiff and difficult to put the gear into first gear, all the rest are grand.

possibly time to look at Tie rod ends/drop links etc?

Thank you for any input

Thanks too everyone for replying this far.

Yes I listed power steering fluid without thinking when I was thinking of fluids not changed on the car yet. Obviously not relevant.

I changed the aux/serp belt today and the new belt is actually “looser” than the old 100,000 miles one.
The old belt had the tension marker further back. The new one is, in theory, right on the limit of being loose. Double checked and the belt is running correctly over the pulleys.

Anyone any thoughts on why that maybe?
The tension mark doesn’t move when the engine is running or not.
