    First tune, service, mod

    :wasntme: I've just got an 'important' notice, but I am replying to myself with relevence, which may make an intersting read for those especially new. This forum answers many questions without ever having to post, finally after many hours of reading parts and bits have been ordered and some...

    Having a crisis (and not a 'Top Gear' crisis either lol)

    When your fiance becomes your wife, and if you upgrade to family status, then think of a family hatchback with a bit of sport, don't go down my route, Xantia Estate complete with towbar and top box :down: Civic not the Type R only do the 3 door version not the 5, nice car though, I was not...

    OEM / Genuine Nissan Parts Online?

    :( I'm a non ebay-er, for a number of reasons, one because a lot of folks will charge extra with Royal Mail - even though it doesn't cost any extra, or people won't post to Orkney as they use a courier which willl be mainland UK only :( So, I'm just looking for a Nissan dealer - or a nissan...

    OEM / Genuine Nissan Parts Online?

    Hi Being up here in the sticks we don't have any Motor Factors we can use, and there is no Nissan dealer up here (Northern Isles) - is there a Nissan dealership anywhere that will..... a) have an online shop for parts b) let me order and pay over the phone and post? After a few bits...

    fag lighter fitting

    Just to add in, our Micra 1.0 Twister 1998 also has no fag lighter, but the wires and socket are directly behind the plastic cover, (will have to use some long nose pliers to pull them out the hole to fit) if I can get hold of a lighter and socket for it, it should just be a case of plugging it...

    Where to put my amp??

    I had a mdf parcel shelf made for my old Micra, carpeted and with reinforced boot risers and boot clips, the amp sat in a recess in the middle of the shelf covered with a metal vent panel, never over heated on me. Connections were made through a slot at the back of the recess towards the rear...

    What Else?

    We're a bit further north than you (Orkney), but we have been informed that metro salvage Dundee has had its fair share of Micra K11's, we're still after a few bits for ours, not been in touch, but our friend's daughter works in Dundee (also a Micra driver) and she has recently picked up a new...

    Filling with fuel

    well many thanks :) Think it'll be a job for a day when there isn't much else to do apart from "play lower the fuel tank and de-kink the pipe", having nosed underneath, have been quite taken back by the subtle differences between the facelift version compared to our old Micra K11's. Only just...

    Filling with fuel

    This is our 3rd Micra, and we've had this on every one, although my wife's 1.0 K11 on a K plate wasn't as bad. Filling up with petrol just seems to be a nightmare, even worse here on island as the choices are limited to well 1 as the other shops pump calibration units are broken so their pumps...

    Fuel consumption

    Just worked ours out, we've always re-filled at 1/4 full (just before it hits the red line). The car has been sat unmoved for oooo at least 6 months, came up just after Chirstmas from Crewe, so it's a little tight, also we don't get a real chance to get her really warmed up, we've been very...

    roof rubber strips

    I doubt very much the car will ever go to Crewe again as unless we get an MOT on it, it'll be an island car (MOT Exempt) :) We will be getting the work done for an MOT just in case we turn it into a floating quick trip shopping trolley lol Thanks for the info though, will have a looksie at...

    roof rubber strips

    I maybe wrong but if my memory serves me correctly my old 1.3 had the plastic strip with the plastic slots for a rack, I was guessing the rubber stripped Micra we have now would have just a roof clamp rack and the rubber was just there to fill in the gap - makes sense I suppose. May have to...

    think i went through a red light

    You'd have noticed a double flash, trust me, back in September last year I'd driven down to see my folks before our sons christening, and low and behold they'd changed the road layout, so there are two sets of traffic lights, a set to look at and a set to stop at, I stopped at the original set...

    Taking dents out the car

    I've just popped out a Suziki Jimney rear bumber using boiling water and a tennis ball, our nieghbour backed into her oil storage tank, thankfully nothing more than a dint in the plastic bumper. The tennis ball idea means you shouldn't get creases or marks from using solid objects, but does...

    roof rubber strips

    We've got one missing, the car took a trip to Crewe before making its journey up North and someone thought it would be fun to rip it off, we're left with two plastic lugs - options are, find one from a salvage yard (can they come off and go back on with ease?) or...remove the other side use...

    bump strip glue???

    Vinegar & Bi-Carb with warm water, just a small plastic jug fall of warm water with about 100ml of white vinegar and a tablespoon of bi-carb, use a non-stick sponge to gently remove any sticky mess, works well with just about anything sticky especially window stickers, body bump strips, number...

    First tune, service, mod

    Hiya Well I've read the panel filter / induction filter battle is still going on...and on....and on :laugh: but our new 1998 1.0 Twister is about to get looked after properly for the first time. Knowing it has full stamped history means not a lot these days, and well it was just a shopping...

    Greetings...5 years on

    Narrow, a cross between tarmac, gravel and sand, very tight bends with some long straights, no traffic lights, no real junctions, no police cameras, no police, but many drivers without MOT's and drunks on the road, mixed in with a few lost sheep andi wandering cows and sucidal rabbits. The...

    Greetings...5 years on

    Hello 5 years ago, I'm sure my wife and I had a membership here, but then we also had two Micra's - after getting married, moving, owning a Citroen C15 a Pug 306 a Skoda Felicia, and a Citroen Xantia estate, we're back with a Micra :grinning: Really forget how much we loved them, they're...
