    I miss my Micra!!

    I sold the Micra in October and got myself a 206 2.0 HDI. The Micra was still running well, was very nice to drive, new box and clutch etc but I fancied something quicker and supposedly still economical. 4 months into owning the 206, I wish I'd kept the Micra or just got another one. Drives like...

    Shuddering and stalling

    Hi all, Since I ran out of petrol a little while ago (the fuel gauge lied!) the car has been shuddering, losing revs and then stalling when idle, which was a slight pain in traffic as you might imagine. I had to give it a few revs when not moving to keep it going. I have run some injector...

    Re-wiring aeral cable

    (1995 Pre-facelift K11) I'm having to re-wire the aerial cable, as my standard cable is shot for one reason or another. I'll probably get a new standard aerial too if I can find one as my one is bent and the connections are naff. My question is, can I just use standard aerial cable to re-wire...

    Washer Jet Fuse?

    Hi all, Quick question really. Does anyone know what size fuse the washer jet motor takes? I'm rigging up another water spray system for this hot weather :) Also, if I ran 2 of these motors, could I run them off the same fuse? Cheers for any help, Tom

    Interior Fuse Box on driver's side

    I thought I'd make a new thread for this question, rather than put it in my existing thread. Is the fuse box by the driver's door earthed in any way? I've narrowed all my current electrical problems down to more or less everything on that fuse box! The bottom screw holding it in place is...

    Car won't start

    Hi all, As the title says, my '95 K11 won't start. It tries, but can never actually get the engine started - it nearly starts, but then cuts out before it can. My dad's first thoughts are plugs or HT leads, but does anyone else have any ideas? The cheaper the better!! :doh: Cheers in...

    Diamond D3 Tweeter problems

    Hi all, long time no see! I have a pair of Diamond D3 co-axial speakers in the Micra, and one of the tweeters is playing up. It sounds like there's a loose connection somewhere but I can't find a way in to find out what's wrong - there's just a couple of wires going up to it from the base of...

    Photo of ariel wiring?

    Hi, Does anyone have, or could anyone take a photo of their ariel wiring above the driver's door please? Mine has obviously been tampered with at some point, and I'm not sure how it's meant to go. There appears to be a cable with two sets of wires running through, but it's been messed around...

    Replacing gearbox

    Hi, I have some questions for those of you who have fitted gearboxes... Mine seems to be coming to the end of it's life in my 1.0 '95. It's whining loudly in most gears now, and I can't stand it any longer. Question is, what level of difficulty would you say changing the gearbox is? My...

    Anyone good with websites/google listings?

    Hi, I have build websites for myself, a taxi company and a wedding car company, and would like to get them to appear higher up (or even at all!) on google. How does google work out how high you place in searches, and how would I get my sites further up in the search listings? The sites...

    Site for standard car specs etc?

    My friend followed me home yesterday in her 1.4 Polo (1996), and she was saying how she couldn't keep up with my 1.0 K11. Now I know the Polo is a heavier car, and I *think* it won't rev as high but not sure, but I would assume it was still quicker than my K11, no? I can't believe it is slower...

    FLI active sub not working

    The other day my sub just cut out and no longer has any power getting to it (both green and red lights are off, and makes no noise). I have checked my wiring and it all seems fine. Fuses are also in tact. The sub's amp (built in) is wired exactly the same as my main amp, so I can't see what is...

    I'm trying to connect my 360 to our network, but it can't find the details like IP address, gateway, and DNS stuff. If I input that manually, where would I get the information? Tom Should be in non car chat, sorry!

    Boxed 6x9s

    I've seen several places selling boxes for 6x9s. What is the benefit of that over, say, just sitting them in solid parcel shelf? Also why is it better to box them if I have a sub beneath them? Cheers, Tom

    Amusing doctors visit...

    Just had a nice trip to the doctors for an unusual reason. I was cleaning my fish tank which houses a pufferfish, and he lunged at me. I've had him 2.5 years now and he's never gone for me. He usually just follows my hand round the tank. But anyway he missed me and I pushed him away. I carried...

    It's coming up to the time when I will need to renew my insurance, and hopefully I will get my first no claims bonus. Thing is, My insurance doesnt seem to have dropped at all. Ecar (who I'm with now) have even increased my price by £100! I thought I was going to get a decent drop? I'm still...
