    Door lock mech frozen?

    Last few weeks I have noticed that the drivers door does not unlock/open after sitting over night with freezing temps either using the external or internal handle. All 3 other doors are fine and open no problem, just the drivers side. Using the key makes no difference. I have applied white...

    Manual gearstick 'slop'

    Amongst the many things that I have on my list 'to do', one of them is to fix the slop in the gearstick side to side. Whilst I have not inspected the linkage yet, I highly suspect the bushing on the gear selector cables have worn on one or both cable selectors.... here was me thinking - this...

    HVAC manual - Air mixer door cable loose

    Hi, Whilst driving the car today, I noticed that the HVAC system was not putting out as much heat as I would have expected. Thankfully I ruled out quickly the coolant system being the issue and narrowed my search down to the control cable that links the heat control knob to the air mix door...

    DIG-S belt drive noise

    Long story short: If you get your belts done due to any noise, have the mechanic check the main serpentine and supercharger tensioner 2 and 4 in the image below), rather than just doing the belts! It seems both are Nissan only parts and hellishly expensive to replace...

    DIG-S Coolant swap

    I have searched high and low for a service manual that contains the HR12DDR (DIG-S) engine, but cant find one anywhere! I am giving the wife's car a good old service at the end of the money and looking at doing the coolant as I cant remember when it was last done! I would like to know if there...

    DIG-S Battery replacment (EFB)

    The battery in my 2012 DIG-S Micra is starting to give up. Lasted a while and been showing signs for a while (throwing error codes if the battery is a little low on engine crank). I have just about got over the cost of the battery, however I am reading that some cars need replacment batteries...

    Suspension rattle / 2012 DIG-S

    So, here we go again, another Micra, another suspension problem/annoyance. My wife's DIG-S 2012 Micra now has a, what I can only describe as a rattle rather than a clunk when she loads both sides of the suspension at the same time. I took it for a quick blast this evening and tested it. On a...

    Front passenger seat belt....

    Seems as though Nissan decided to really scrimp in some of its K13's! Its the first car in a LONG time we have owned not to have height adjustment on the seatbelt, so I thought maybe the seat itself was height adjusted. Drivers side is, but passenger side is fixed height. This is causing a...

    DIG-S 1.2 Air box removal (to change air filter/access coil packs and spark plugs/oil filler cap)

    Today I explored the Micra's HR12DDR engine a bit more. My aim was to see how I could access: 1. Air filter 2. Coil packs/spark plugs As the engine bay is compact it’s a bit fiddly and Nissan seem to have gone with a odd design compared to in the past which made it a bit quirky when putting it...

    SplanK's 2012 DIG-S Acenta

    Well what can I say - I love this little car - there are a few little things here and there that I think "why did Nissan do it like this" but overall, I am quite impressed! Myself and my wife are expecting our first child in June, and our existing K11 was showing signs of getting on a bit...

    Looking at upgrading the K11....

    Hi all, I am looking at replacing our K11 with a K13. K11 although has been a good work horse, I dont think has much left in it before it starts to cost us a small fortune, and with the wife being preggers! Anyway - we have been looking at the DIG-S, fits my requirment for something pokey and...

    Rattle/medium pitch clonk over bumps/pot holes - 2003 K11

    Hi all, Wondering if anybody can point me in the direction of a suspected suspension/steering issue that I have so far been unsucsessful in tracking down. My Micra (K11/2003/1.0) makes a "medium pitch" clonk noise when going over bumps on either side. It seems to do it more on cornering...

    late K11 starter motor - how to remove

    It seems as though on the late K11 micras (the ones with individual coil packs) the starter motor is at the back of the engine rather than the front, and directly under the inlet manifold. Confirmed with a quick eyeball view from the top (not that easy to see!) and search on here... How easy...

    K11 pollon filter... some non-air cons have them!

    Replaced the heater speed card on my late K11 today (03 plate) and I noticed there was still poor air flow at top speed. The pollon filter was completly blocked (Well, it would after 8 years of use!). Removed it and hey presto full air flow restored. Just need to get a replacment now...
