    Exhaust differnces?

    Hi, Is there any difference between the exhaust system for a manual over an auto box setup? If there is I can only imagine it would be front pipe for clearance perhaps? I know the cr petrol engines have a centre silencer whereas the dci diesel doesnt. As the back boxes are all the same...

    1.2 sport

    Yeah they are slightly thicker coil too so probably stronger / last longer. My original springs had rusted and snapped! I picked up a set of complete front struts and rear springs/shocks from a sr160 with very low mileage, like new from ebay.

    Random rear wiper

    Ok thanks, thought may be the case it needs replacing. I remember on my old P11 Primera you could take the front motor apart and clean the grease off contacts, but easier to replace if find low mileage being broken.

    Random rear wiper

    Hi guys, presume this is a common fault but wanted to see if its easy fix or needs replacement motor? Basically the rear wiper now decides it will stop/park randomly when/where it want to after you turn it off. It will only wipe again after 30secs or so before parking in another position...

    Strut compatability

    Yeah the sport + model is just a trim level, mechanically the same as any other. All k12's have same strut/shock fitment, its only the sr 1.6 that has slightly stiffer spring. I recently changed my struts on my dci the sr ones and my wifes shocks are due upgrade on her 1.2 auto as they're...

    New engine K12 Micra

    Glad to know. My wife's 1.2 auto is a grumpy old thing starting up and also chain rattles when cold. Idles rough but think maybe throttle body. Runs fine when warmed up though but think I may have to change it sometime. When pulling away from junction will sound boomy and feels like handbrake...
