    Hard to put in reverse only when engine warm.

    Thanks so much for all the help. Took it to a clutch place where they adjusted it (for free!) and it is now pretty much perfect. My husband still thinks it is a wee bit hard, but I'm driving it very happily and not embarrassing myself in car parks any more!!!!

    Thanks. Got it. At the minute it literally has to be right to the floor to change gear. Will gauge how far up when moving off.

    Thanks Frank. Do i just say to them to adjust it to 1/3 up? Will they look at me as if I am a mad woman? Or they should know what I'm talking about.

    Hard to put in reverse only when engine warm.

    Oh, don't know if it relevant to this, suspect it may be though. When moving off in first, I have to very slowly release the clutch, otherwise it make a bit of a noise. As soon as I get up to a few mph, the noise stops. Doesn't do it at all if I let the clutch up slowly. Think I read somewhere...

    Hard to put in reverse only when engine warm.

    Thank you all so much for your helpful replies. It is a wee bit stiff to put into lower gears at times, but it is mainly the reverse that is the problem.

    I'm having problems with putting the car in reverse but only when the engine is warm. Makes that awful grinding noise that makes every man in the vicinity turn round and look at this terrible woman driver. GRRRRR! When the engine is cold it is fine. I know I spotted someone with a similar...

    Easiest way to fix leak?

    Mckenziecz thanks for pointing me in the right direction. PollyP Thanks for the pics in your blog. Looks like you have solved the problem for us. There was no rubber seal around the scuttle panel clips at all and one clip was broken. Just trying to get Nissan to order the right clip for us now.

    Easiest way to fix leak?

    I will PM him, thanks. I did look through lots of threads, but they say to remove wipers, and look under the scuttle board or something. I don't know if that is easy to do, or how to do it.

    Easiest way to fix leak?

    I just bought a 2002 Micra s last week and drove it from Belfast to Luton with no problem apart from stiff gears. However, since I got back, it has been pouring and there is water dripping in to the passenger footwell. I did open the bonnet and found leaves and debris which I cleared and this...
