    Which bearing pullers for diff and mainshaft (and races)?

    I'm plodding away at a snail's pace with the gearbox bearing replacement and managed to get the input shaft bearings out/off, and the diff bearing outer races, but I have a 3 size set of 3-arm bearing pullers which are too fat-fingered to pull the tapered bearings off (as there's only a tiny bit...

    Gearbox removal: 96 K11 1.0 pre-face

    Ok, so after a long time I've finally got round to having a go at replacing the gearbox bearings and clutch/bearing and I've got everything else off (I think) following the Haynes manual* and pollyp's post about it. * so vague lol, no need to undo the bloody trackrod end ball-joint! Had a go...

    1.0 pre-face gearbox fill: oil not going in

    I've drained the gearbox and have plenty of 80w oil to put in, but can't remember how to get the oil to actually go in. I've removed the speedo drive (and the screw) and have tried: - a funnel that was slightly narrower than the whole opening - some 1/4" tube that seemed to fit over the inner...

    K11 1.0 manual gearbox

    I think my gearbox is on its way out (reverse often won't engage 2 out of 3 times, rarely a forward gear won't engage, the centre return spring isn't there anymore, it always has a seeping of oil, and lately the rolling/rumble sound with the clutch engaged has increased so I guess a bearing is...

    Steering: adjusting centre point and toe with tie rods? (lowered 50 and 60mm)

    I've replaced the front suspension with KYB Excel-G K11 shocks and HOL tarmac springs, and rear suspension with KYB Excel-G Corsa-B shocks and HOL tarmac springs. Springs are 50 and 60mm drop. I'm determined to get the Noddy adjustable panhard rod on to sort the back offset out. But what is...

    K11, Fitting rear shocks/springs: how do you get the axle to drop / spring out?

    I'm in the middle of swapping out the shocks and springs to Corsa Bs and HOL 60mm. I've got the right side shock out and not really sure how to get the spring out? If I press down on the axle/hub it springs back up? I'm going to take the left shock out and see if the axle drops any more. I...

    Lowering springs (front+rear) 50-60mm

    I've got a '96 K11 1.0 and finally got around to fitting a KYB Excel-G suspension kit that I bought second hand on eBay. It was advertised with 40mm lowering springs but turns out they are just OE-spec stock height (I guess just the regular ones that come with the KYB kit?) Anyway, after...

    White connector (passenger footwell) wiring matching?

    The L/H headlight fuse socket has got worse and worse and is beyond cleaning up, melted pretty bad. I scavenged the fuse/relay boxes and wiring loom from an R-reg K11 (mine is N-reg), and they appeared to be the same (another R-reg in the yard was different somehow, can't remember now, possibly...

    MIG welding: any danger to ECU, head-unit, etc?

    So I've replaced my cross member (bolted in) and am still yet to weld it in place. After a week or so of research, I'm fairly set on getting a welder in the 150-160 Amp range using refillable gas. One of the welding guides I came across said that disconnecting the battery terminals wasn't...

    Wanted: K11 lower radiator brackets

    I replaced the cross member today on my '96 K11 and the radiator brackets on the bottom are rusted, welded over and I think one of the bolt holes has been welded through. Not looking very promising to salvage mine (they look like #### basically lol), so looking to get some in decent condition...

    Almera GA16 airbox fitted... sort of... breather pipe disconnected

    Right, I got an airbox courtesy of nexussteve (thanks btw :D ) Managed to get the old intake pipe out (battery bracket looks like it would need a few hours penetrant lol) with some jiggling of the coolant tank. Got the stock airbox off and fitted the GA16 airbox, connecting the small ~5mm...

    Rusty crossmember with hole - is this dangerous?

    While removing the manifold and exhaust today, I noticed one of the bolt points of the central section of the cross member is quite severely rusted. I know this means I need a new cross-member/frame section, but what I'm asking is, Is this dangerous to continue driving on for a week or so...
