    DIG-S rear silencer

    Thanks Just pinged Glyn Hopkins an email asking for a cost of a Nissan one. Looked at a few online stores for a pattern part and are either £80-100 or low cost and questionable or out of stock... Myself, I like the idea of a custom exhaust with a bit of a burble, however it is the wife's car...

    DIG-S rear silencer

    Well, in less than 12 months/5000 miles, the rear silencer on our DIG-S has failed again. In this case, it seems like the weld has let go rather than the pipe snapping off (the pipe extends into the back box and appears fine). Going to see what the garage says as its less than 12 months and...

    Screen wash Pump fuse

    Not sure! Even looked (admittedly quickly) through the ESM and could not see a reference. Changing the pump is fairly inexpensive. Ours failed - well, didn't stop working, however when trying to use the front washers, it sprayed out the rear. Simply case of buying replacement part (mine was...

    Techtalk/Guide: HR12DDR - DIG-S

    Probably because the people who drive them generally done know/care. I would expect the injector to only fire once the intake valve is shut otherwise you are putting fuel into the intake and it would become un-measured. I have considered using sea foam or something in the past, however at...

    Door mirror

    It looks like it held on with pawl's like the corner cover (2) so it would appear it just needs leveraging off or to leaver up any catches.. Incidentally, that seems to be the only difference between the manual and electric mirror units.

    Door mirror

    This may help. I did mine a couple of years ago however its the electric mirror adjuster rather than cable, however generally similar. Are you trying to replace parts of the mirror or the entire unit? I replaced the whole unit after somebody hit ours, snapping the mounting plate. The...

    DIG-S Coolant swap

    Over cooled maybe, but it doesn't drop below what it should be.... On the supercharged versions, we should not be blocking off the grille as that would also impede air going to the intercooler, leading to increased air intake temps and thus lower performance/MPG. Blocking off the radiator...

    DIG-S Coolant swap

    I did this today..... pulled the bottom hose. Wasn't too bad but did start dripping from everywhere (bit of sand on the floor helps with that that and multiple buckets!). Didnt bother pulling the heater core hose as suggested in the workshop manual, I had a look and thought sod that - to much...

    Door lock mech frozen?

    Mine was working this morning as well - no minus temperatures over night (although its close!) - even managed to give my Megane RS a bath! It shows my particular issue is 100% temperature related - I just need to decide if its worth bothering moving forward with a replacement!

    Door lock mech frozen?

    Thanks - it sounds very similar, but in my case both handles are inoperable as though the lock has not disengaged. I dont think the cables themselves are frozen as the external and internal handles operate without resistance. If the cable had frozen or seized then the handles would be stiff...

    Door lock mech frozen?

    100% certain. When the whole door is frozen you get a small bit of play out of the door as it moves on the rubber and free's up with the application of warm water. Even pushing from the inside does not allow the door to move at all. Unlocking/locking repeatedly eventually works and the door...

    Door lock mech frozen?

    Last few weeks I have noticed that the drivers door does not unlock/open after sitting over night with freezing temps either using the external or internal handle. All 3 other doors are fine and open no problem, just the drivers side. Using the key makes no difference. I have applied white...

    DIG-S Coolant swap

    Did you pull the bottom rad hose, or did you use the drain plug? Was under the car today doing the oil so I have a nosey at next weeks job of draining the rad. I happened to notice on the drain plug some sort of seal between the radiator end and the drain plug itself. Looks either...

    Service Info [DIG-S]

    I know boosted engines are a little more harsher on plugs, but the Micra is hardly pushing much air through the engine and the miller cycle should not really change much really! NGK's are the 'best', or more the bench mark plug as they are what Nissan specify for this engine, however there are...
