    Can you still get engine oil in metal 5ltr cans rather than plastic?

    Not so much Micra related (but is for the old girl) but can you get engine oil in metal cans any more? Trying (like a lot of us are) to cut out the plastic in our purchases (yes guilty a lifetime of doing nothing and now my conscience has been pricked .... is true) and we have done a shed load...

    Advice on doing a good quality home re-spray

    The paints and materials I used last time where mixed by a local paint shop and were good. From memory they mixed to colour code and supplied a light grey primer (car is almost identical to the one in this photo.... They they supplied a clear coat that from memory was mixed 1/1??? with a...

    Advice on doing a good quality home re-spray

    Again something I had absolutely no idea about but did wander why the coil? And you right, mines a 25 meter straight rubber pipe. The stuff you learn when you ask the question. Another ebay search and some reading to be done. And they seem cheap as well so will absolutely be doing that. Thanks...

    Advice on doing a good quality home re-spray

    Thanks for the advice Maarten, yes tend to think it's easier do the loose panels off car given my limited skills. And it's good timing as I bought a new set of locks as a good ebay price a while back ... will do that at the same time. I bought a modest priced gun last time (think was maybe 35...

    Hi John and thanks for the steer. The links are not working for me but I searched on the item you mentioned and can see and understand entirely what you mean. Well this alone takes my knowledge upwards and will make a huge improvement in result. Is exactly the sort of thing I was hoping for...

    Refinishing Original Steel wheels

    Hi again. Following on from the re-spray advice request .... same again for the steel wheels. I've done the grind them down with a angle grinder and wire wheel and spray them up with silver paint routine many times and they look good for a while and then the dreaded rust marks come back. I...

    Advice on doing a good quality home re-spray

    Morning all, it's been a while and after a rocky start to the the year, some super fault free months K11 motoring. A couple of years back (when we had a hot few Summer weeks) I did a re-spray on the old girl. First one I've done in many years and it came out not perfect but amazingly well...

    Light Stalk - Interchangeable Pre/Post Facelift?

    Have to say, you both spot on .... rotated and re-seated both bulbs and put the cover back on and no more buzzing or main beam light when using the stalk .... thanks for the steer, I was already hunting through ebay when should have looked for more logical answers. The value of micra.org folks...

    Light Stalk - Interchangeable Pre/Post Facelift?

    Morning all, Light stalk playing up ... all seems work I think but blue main beam dash light comes on in normal driving lights position and get a strange buzz? Intermittent. It's a 95 1.0 Pre-Facelift. Seems not so easy to find a replacement right now and was wandering if a later part might...

    Keys, Locks, NATS & Things....

    Thanks Liam, yep no LED of any description. Come to think of it, I think I changed the steering lock when it last got broken into. Should write this stuff down when it's done. Pretty sure on that basis I should be good to do this. .... well on a day when it's considerably drier and warmer that...

    .... you harsh on your cars plmval! :-) .... end of economical lifecycle!!!!! :-) .... no I take your point. Mind you the guy on ebay did an entire new set with duplicates and including steering lock for £33 shipped! Not bad. Mind I didn't stop to think about the knock on effect. Worst case I...

    Keys, Locks, NATS & Things....

    Thanks for the advice .... any way to tell if it has NATS or not? There was an after market alarm/imobiliser fitted early days ... long since expired. As it goes the steering lock and key are solid but would be nice replace the lot with one good new set .

    Keys, Locks, NATS & Things....

    Evening all, After a break in few years back I end up with three different keys and locks. All works fine but the drivers door key about to breath it's last ... borderline to snapping. So I bought a complete new set .... doors, boot, petrol and ignition assembly for a great price on ebay but...

    Your Input about Clutches and Clutch change?

    Hi Ash, yes precisely the thing I'd like to avoid .... I've been pretty lucky overall with after market parts but would hate to be doing the job twice. Good to know it's relatively straight forward job. Cheers

    Best K11 Sound System?

    Very cool ..... just curious as to how much these things cost to setup roughly? Boot on mine is pretty full so would take some jigging to make a reality but definitely interesting. You planning fit these to all 14???? :-)

    Your Input about Clutches and Clutch change?

    Thanks for the advice. The car has done a gentle 75k, not razzed (well maybe one daughter did a small amount!!!) but in general nothing to hint at replacement needed. The seal you mention, what is that actually for? The audio was in Polish so I didn't really know :-) Cheers
