    Interesting to see Paul that you remove the whole shaft to do this job, I've only ever taken off the outer joints to do boots. Do you need to drain gearbox oil every time you do boots ? i'm guessing on this occasion the oil needed doing too

    This is more of a "What Did I Do To My Micra A Few Days Ago" but hey ho.... Fitted a Super S rear disc axel to my LX to compliment the front AD18v upgrade I did a while back. Braking is now Level = "Brick Wall" !......

    The Old Girl

    Lovely survivor mate, bit confused though, LX is bog basic three door, yours is five door so should be SLX ? Maybe your tailgate has been replaced at some time, anyhoo here's mine.....

    Overfilling expansion bottle with bubbles in

    Sound's like head gasket to me I'm afraid bud ( or a cracked/warped cylinder head ) there is not always "mayo" around the oil filler cap when the gasket let's go. You can buy chemical kits to test for exhaust gas in the coolant, you can also use a multi meter to test the coolant too if you have...

    what did you do to your micra today ?

    Thanks for the explanation, I like the ally cover better than the plain steel one ( looks more factory ) though I have to say, mine don't leak and they are both over 20yrold cars now, don't think the plates have ever been disturbed though. I also notice you have a lightened flywheel, how do...

    what did you do to your micra today ?

    I see your engine has what looks to be a cast aluminium plate covering the side where the top timing chain/cams are. Most Micra's I have seen have had just a thin steel plate for a cover, and they seem to weep, pollyp had issues with his in the past. Is this plate you have an upgraded part for...

    heater controls

    Hi nudger In the course of fitting A/C to my 95 pre-face LX I removed the heating/cooling control box, admittedly I did remove the dash in the process, but that was because the instal required it. I would imagine ( as Haynes suggest ) you should be able to access the control box...

    My First Micra At The Age Of 16

    Looks the biz mate, such an awesome rare little survivor, pre face are my favourite Micra ( but then, I'm biased haha ) don't forget if she has been stood up a lot it would be wise to change ALL fluids and filters. Welcome to the madness that is Micra, but if you are big into the JDM scene I...

    what's missing

    Some SLX models over here had the bonnet thing ( which I believe is actually a heat shield for the bonnet as it is far to thin to be sound proofing ) I got one that came with a bonnet and other parts I got off a Ciscos member that was getting out of the Micra game and fitted that one to my Super...
