hi we bought in december a micra with only one key and the nissan dealer told us that they
would get a replacement key from nissan,its nearly 1 month since we bought the car but dont
have a spare key yet the reason for this is that nissan have a back order on the keys which i
really dont believe...
how do you activate the nissan connect,i have been given some instructions from nissan
and they say to press the setup button and go into the info menu then registration but i dont have a info button
there, our model has the sd card at the lower right corner the newer models have it in the top...

yesterday we bought 4 new tyres its not the brand i buy for mine but we thought we'd try them,
the make is tigar (part of viking) sigura 155/70/13 t and surprisingly they seem to be a really good tyre the
road noise has been reduced by such a lot and they feel pretty grippy as well
today the drl's finally turned up been waiting for a while for them.
i fitted them this morning where the front fog lights normally go
it took me 2 hrs to fit them as i like to have all wiring looking like
it was originally there,the drl's have to be wired so they come on
with the ignition and...
is there an easy way to drain the power steering fluid as i want to change the fluid in the morning, i am hoping there is a drain plug on the pump but i guess that would make life toooo easy.

kath past her driving test yesterday 1st time and i have now informed her insurance company, her insurance has now gone up £66 because she is driving by herself absolutely madness as she has a 50cc scooter thats she's been riding for 7 years by herself so its nothing new to her being by herself
now the micra is ok i was trying to find the exact cause of the breakdown.
the coil primary resistance is 0.9 ohm's (book 0.8 ohms)
the coil secondary resistance is 11.3k (book 1k)
i know the secondary is out of spec but it isn't open circuit so would this be the no spark cause
after problems today i now find it important to know what control what circuit
by the dissy there is a relay box but ours doesn't have a label on the top to show
what each of the blue relays operates could anyone post a pic of the relay cover
our 2000 k11 1ltr cvt (pre coil packs)has just stopped working no probs going to the beach but car wouldn't start to come home
had the AA out he checked
the fuses there ok
the fuel pump buzzs when ignition is turned on
you can smell fuel so fuel is getting through to the plugs
but no spark...
are the front and rear wheel studs the same ??
on one of the service receipts it says that
one wheel stud is damaged and could do with
replacing if they are different then i will get one of each.
last august i booked a holiday for june 2012 cant wait to go ,that was until today i've had a call off first choice and they have told me that the flight has been cancelled due to not enough bookings ,now i cant understand how they can say that, with there being 5 months until we should of flown...

nissan part numbers are also listed
changing park position on rear wiper
