RE­GARD­ING boot springs on the Honda Ac­cord 2001. There are two types, one set for when the car has a boot spoiler and one set for with­out. Both sets need re­plac­ing if one breaks as ex­tra pres­sure is placed on the un­bro­ken one.

Pos­si­bly the dealer didn’t ask if it had a boot spoiler as the parts cat­a­logue lists ‘‘with or with­out spoiler’’. We tend to re­place the springs with the ‘‘with spoiler’’ type in any case. Ross Fred­er­ick­son, Robert LaneHonda

SO, the ex­tra weight of a spoiler— even if it’s cos­metic and does not gen­er­ate any down­force— does make a dif­fer­ence.
