    Oil mist?

    Best thing to do is wash it all off and then take it for a runand check it again, it's hard to tell where a leak is coming from if it's already covered in oil.

    Oil mist?

    It's difficult to say where it's actually coming from without seeing it properly but from what you have described it sounds like there's a good chance your rocker cover gasket might be leaking.

    Brake Lights Not Working

    Have you tried changing either of the bulbs? You can't always tell they are blown and it's not that uncommon for them to both go at the same time.

    Micra track car build

    Got the car back on Three sisters last weekend, it performed great yet again :) Could possibly do with a tiny bit more power if i'm going to take it on a more open track but it was pretty much perfect on the little go kart track. Here's a few photo's and some on board footage from the day.

    Micra track car build

    Yo guys. Been a while since i've managed to do any work on this project but finally made a little bit of progress. Got the Takata Harness fitted and also fitted the tow strap and big windscreen sticker. I've got some track time planned at Three sisters again this month, then Teeside next month...

    Slight oil lick

    Shouldn't be leaking at all, probably needs a fresh washer on it

    Scratched an itch I've had for years!

    Looks like a great buy and it hasn't turned pink which is a bonus!! My first one was a red prefacelift 1 litre, absolutely loved it

    Induction kit K11 2002 Micra.

    Most of the kits you see for sale run behind the battery where there is absolutely no airflow. I made one myself and ran it the opposite way of everyone else to behind the drivers side headlight where there is slightly colder air, it would be even better if you made a cold air feed to go with...

    Is a 17yr old K11 still worth it in 2019?

    My k11 is 23 years old and i've had it for 2 years now and the only thing i've had to replace is the brake pads and the heater resistor. They go forever if they've been well looked after and haven't been hit with the rust yet.

    Black Diamond discs and Predator pads

    You'd probably see more benefit from upgrading to some vented brakes off an Almera or Sunny, the Micra discs are solid so they don't disperse heat very well.

    Looks like a nice little runabout, always liked that Blue as well.

    Introductions in Order

    The E30 bottle cap wheels would look awesome on a Micra and fitment should be pretty good as well

    Introductions in Order

    Looks like you've got a good deal to be honest, the 1.4's hold their value a little bit better than most of the other models so £500 is quite good. Here's a little buyers guide video i did that might help you with some of the common problems that the Micra's have Also Fiesta wheel won't fit...

    First timer !

    Best thing to do is probably take the cat out and get the measurements yourself, that way you can cut the flanges off and use them if you need to. The other option is you can get them ready made at
