    1.2 exhaust front pipe to middle section gasket

    I got the rear box and mid sections of the exhaust replaced a few weeks ago. It's started leaking at the joint to the front pipe. It used to be a great little business, but they have sold it on and those there now are just cowboys, I'm not going back no matter what. I was going to have a look...

    I had the airbag light flashing yesterday. Got home to read the codes from the ABS module and it says "RH pre-tentioner" I presume this is at the seatbelt buckle, they dont liike like they have pre-tensioners, more like a solid metal bar holding the catch. Do they K12s have pre-tensioners? if...

    What's the typical clutch life on a 1.2?

    I know it's very driver dependent, but what's a typical mileage they last? The bite point on ours is near the top of the pedal, and just wondering if the clutch is at the end of it's life, or something needs adjusted or bled. Mileage is 73,000 miles.

    I've not had time to look at this yet, but the front driver's disk is noticably hotter than the passenger after hearing a brake squeal when driving. Any usual suspect for the micra? slides or is it normally the piston?

    Rear exhaust heat shield

    How vital is the heatshield over the back box on the micra? I'm guessing not that important, but it must have been put there for a reason. I had a rattle from the back of the car, had a look and the heat shield over the backbox had come loose. I pushed it back up to see what fixings were...

    Music via bluetooth on non-satnav headunits

    We've got a K12 with bluetooth and no satnav option. The phone connects and works great, is there an option to get music over bluetooth? The aux has no options, I presume only for the aux socket in front of the gearstick.

    1.2 oil filter, pain of a place

    That oil filter on the 1.2 is on a pain of a place to get a good grip for tightening, you can only get one hand to it, and your arm is at full stretch, from the side, or underneath, or from the top. I know it'll be tight enough, I can get it physically any tighter by hand, I'd be happier with a...

    Brakes on the micra

    I've got a 1.2 micra, the brakes on it don't feel great. I replaced the front discs and pads last year and that made it a bit better. I'll admit I'm used to more performance cars, and the brakes on my daily driver are massive, even for a normal car. Even still the micra brakes feel weak. I've...

    Spare key for a late K12 micra

    Does the late micra have any way to program a spare key other then a dealer or specialist? I've read all the off/on 6 times, and also found it doesn't seem to work for later cars. Is there a different trick to them or is it a special job only?
