    Ple help: K11 1.0 auto (2000) = jammed ignition barrell

    Morning Frank! :D Good point, it's for an earlier Micra, mine is a 2000/01 plate. Interestingly, on another forum where I mentioned my issue, a poster chipped in with this piece of advice: "I have worked on several of the newer shape Micra's from reg 51 plate onwards. They have an...

    Ok in that case I will get the eBay item above and swap over the locks. With regards to changing the transponder chips inside the key, it's the little red or blue squares on the side of the key that I need to pick out and swap over, is that right?

    So I can just change the barrel and as long as I also change the small black immobiliser box with matching one, I don't need to worry about ECU, is that right? Also, just read this somewhere, doh! :( "Whatever you do, don't lubricate the lock barrel. As the lock and key wear, metal filings...

    Ple help: K11 1.0 auto (2000) = jammed ignition barrell

    Hi guys, My trusty little Micra has an issue with the ignition barrell. I believe its the barrell as both keys present the same problem. If you look at the pic below, you will see letters etched on the barrell. If I take the key out at point S, when I put it back in, it simply won't turn at...

    Biggest size battery in a K11?

    I would like a bigger batt as I plan to upgrade the stereo and run two amplifiers, both power hungry class A/B amps. Without any additional equipment, just with lights and fogs on full and heater on max, the alternator kicks in. With a bigger battery that probably won't happen - it doesn't on...

    New K11 owner, ex Toyota Supra owner!

    Hi folks, I have recently bought a K11 S ie. standard. It has no extras whatsoever and the 12v socket is there except its blanked out. Any idea if the wiring is there or will I have to add that as well as a ciggy lighter socket? :)

    MPG: K11 1.0 vs. K11 1.3 ?

    OK great. I recall that on the gearstick it says CVT-something, so that will tell me what I'm looking at.

    MPG: K11 1.0 vs. K11 1.3 ?

    Ed / Desty - many thanks for the info. If I want better MPG, should I be looking out for a 1.3 CVT with torque converter or a 1.3 with the powder clutch? Car will be doing a mixture of B roads and town traffic and once in a blue moon, a motorway, such as the M1. :)

    How easy is it to clock a Micra?

    Thanks Ed, Polly etc. - I have taken note and will look at those bits next time I view one. The Micra where the owner conveniently lost old MOTs and service history, I definitely won't be looking at!
