    New on this

    Only part I know is you need an engineers report to pass the car for insurance purposes , good to be fully legal though. Look through the forum, it has a lot of excellent information and advice

    Micra manual strange sound

    Sounds like the symptoms of a new clutch, pressure plate and the old original thrust bearing which would be crass stupidity not to replace when the box is off! You could put the front up on axle stands and get a buddy to press the clutch on and off in gear with a metal bar to your ear and...
