    Passenger side electric window stopped working

    I had that problem. In my case, a small spring inside had dislodged and was jamming the switch. I just removed the spring and the window works now without the spring. Or, you could try a new switch, about £5 on fleabay or try your local car breaker.

    Obd power memory savers

    I think you can but people go wrong when they plug the memory saver into the obd and then accidentally let the crocodile clips touch each other. Update: After trying it myself, it didn't work. I used this bluepoint one: I connected it to the obd port and used a small 12v battery as the...

    Passenger electric window switch not working [solved]

    The passenger electric window stopped working. I completely disassembled the switch and cleaned it, but in the process I noticed a small spring inside. I could not figure out where it came from, so I tried it without the spring and it's working great. I think the spring was snagging the...

    Average miles per gallon display eratic after battery change

    I'm just getting used a k13 after having a k11. The average miles per gallon was showing a steady 40mpg, but I changed the battery yesterday and it went to zero and now it's changing frequently, showing 60mpg, then 24mpg and then zero when stopping the car. Is this just the ECU learning again...

    Be careful with this newer type of bosch battery S4001 S4 063

    I got this battery for my k13 and it's much lighter and cheaper in construction than my previous bosch batteries. Notice where the handle folds down. Normally there is a square plastic bit there that makes it hard to accidentally connect a spanner across the terminals. Now that the plastic...

    Lower front arms

    Can I have the link to the source. My lower front arms were advisories during the last MOT. I'd rather by bushes than the whole arm.

    RADio code

    I bought a second hand micra k13 with no radio code and it needs a new battery. I took the panel off and the numbers from top to bottom on the radio are: 28185 1HAOA PN-3201M-B serial number CL0930B9052837 Any help would be appreciated. Update: after a lot of searching I found a program...

    Saying goodbye to my K11.

    I'll be going over the k13 I got recently with a fine tooth comb. Yes, carpets can be damp for years due to a small leak somewhere and you only know about it when a rotten hole appears underneath.

    Rear wheel askew, bent axle?

    That's exactly what the wheel looks like. I think the car was t-boned. I gather it can't be fixed. I canceled the deal and got another micra from a different branch. It looks okay.

    Rear wheel askew, bent axle?

    I checked out a used car at arnold sharks today. I noticed masking tape on the inside edge of the rear nearside door and the door itself was a slightly different shade of white compared to the rest of the car. I also noticed the rear offside wheel looked slightly askew (see photo). My...

    Saying goodbye to my K11.

    I have had lots of MOTs from the same guy with very few advisories. I was begining to wonder about that.

    Saying goodbye to my K11.

    In my heart, I want to fix it, but the car is parked on a main road and that's where I have to work on it. It's too much work to take all my gear out to the car and back in again at the end of the day. Plus there is the risk of injuring someone walking past while welding or doing other things.
