    I'm looking for an automatic but that one looked fast. Had to take this one six mmonths ago, as things during lockdown were not looking so promising. I like the car though. just sorting out the clutch, and ordered a boroscope camera, to drill into the clutch casing and lube the clutch...

    I think I have scored another point in playing "Hunt the micra S h i t box" game, but my japanse is not as good as it used to be. This one's called OG Boris. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/254926026981?

    Just put the car through the MOT. Was a tad apprehensive as it was the first MOT on this car, I have had for six months and a new MOT place. I sailed through which I thought was great for a 19 year old car. Just advisory on a bit of play in the lower ball joints, which the MOT guy said if...

    Had the same experience at minus two fitting spark plugs on the weekend. They had not been changed for 9 years along with petrol filter and heard horror stories of them not coming out after that time. So, thought I bets get them out with a can of plusgas to help smooth their journey. Anyways...

    Cool. i agree, cheap pads don't pay in the long run. I got a s refurbed Nissan caliper for £60 and it has been good for about four years now, done by company in Brum. Changed the fuel filter yesterday as my micra wanted to drag me to a halt into the slow lane of motorway at new year...

    cool. that project should keep you going during the spring. Mine had the clutch cable changed on this four years ago with the new clutch. From reading on hear one of Frank's old comments, sometimes these micra get some sort of problem where the clutch sticks a bit on the shaft and you can't...

    It is a bit #### on the outside with lacquer peel on the roof and bonnet but rust free, service history and tidy inside £450 delivered. It drives better than my 2001 micra. It does not stop quite as well as it does not have ferodo brakes like my other one. Clutch is a bit stiffer but only done...

    Article on micras.

    Agreed. I read somewhere that all told, there were 3 million micras made worldwide and we are just down to less than 80,000 here. Just shocking :eek:

    Any ideas on sorting out lacquer peel on k11 roof?

    Cheers for that. Took a while to reply as this micra owner has only just sold the car due to emigrating. Got him down to £450 delivered, which is no mean feat these days for a rust free k11. It has had a new clutch tyres and caliper done. The lacquer peel is the least of any problems as the...

    Finding Nemo the micra.

    I think facelift model that I am looking for already has risen a bit .Many more like £600 compared to £500 a few years ago. Through dealers though that have rot in them.
