    Cooling system overheating

    I've just renewed the anti-freeze in my 2001 K11 Micra 1.4 SE, and now after a run it is overheating - the temp. gauge needle went into the red after about four miles. I suspect an air lock in the system as it didn't take the full quantity of coolant when topping up. Any tips on bleeding the...

    Does anyone know which manufacturer's team famously put the co-driver in the back seat of their 1980’s World Rally Championship cars? I've tried Google, but to no avail. Thanks in anticipation.

    Gearbox breather hose, Micra 1.4 SE (2001)

    Thanks for the reply. If it is just a vent pipe, why does it need to be so long, and routed up from the gearbox to near the airbox? The carbon canister has some hoses attached to all except one small pipe, which is open to atmosphere, Is this normal?

    Gearbox breather hose, Micra 1.4 SE (2001)

    What is the breather hose from the gearbox attached to at its other end, which is curved like a hook? Would it be the carbon canister? Haynes manual doesn't show it. Thanks in anticipation!

    I would like to know whether it is ok to set up the correct handbrake adjustment on the K11 by: 1. Slackening off the handbrake adjustment screw until cables are fully slack. 2. Fully retracting handbrake operating lever inside each brake drum via a tool pushed through the...

    Micra 1.4 l SE won't start

    Hi all. Thanks for the overwhelming response! Seriously though, I have solved the problem - the transponder in the key had dropped out and was discovered on my driveway. Who knows how it happened, but all is well now. All the best for Christmas and a trouble-free motoring 2018 to all Micra fans.

    Micra 1.4 l SE won't start

    A strange problem has arisen with my 2001 Micra. It wouldn't start this evening and I used it okay yesterday, filled up with petrol and put it in the garage and haven't used it, until I tried to start it this evening. It has always run fine before, the battery is nearly new and fully charged...

    It looks as if there is wear in the gears; but I can live with it for now since I have heat!

    Heater Temp Control Knob Slips

    Thanks. I managed to open the water valve by hooking a stiff wire around the part where the cable connects to it and pull it to the "open" position, so I now have heat! This was done in the passenger footwell side under the dashboard where there is a small opening, so I didn't need to remove...

    How can I fix the above problem, as heater is stuck in cold mode and the temp. control won't turn on the heat! (The heating system doesn't have air-con).
