    Penetrating fluid

    I decided to repair the return spring on the gear lever so had to remove the heat shield. I had had a look at the bolts a few days ago and they didnt look to clever. I did a search for "best penetrating fluid" and what came up was a bit of a surprise. A lot of people recommend 50 - 50 acetone/...

    How to reset the Airbag light

    I did post these instructions at the end of a thread about removing an SRS steering wheel but though I would create a separate thread. Once I had removed the steering wheel and reassembled, I think because I drove the car with the airbag disconnected the airbag warning light would not go off...

    A general observation

    I'm now quite aged I'm sure in this forum at 45 years old. I had my little K11 Micra and I was pretty anonymous in that, occasionally morons would pull out in front of you or try and get around you in rather dangerous ways - nothing new there. I now have a K12 160SR which I really enjoy...

    SR spare wheel

    I have one of those awful wheelbarrow spare wheels. I have just got a spare alloy the same as the rest on my 160sr (16 inch with a 185 tyre). It will fit in the tyre well but wont go flush with the floor of the car. How is it done on the Sport SR, do they have a different boot liner?

    And here it is!

    After a wash, claybar, paint treatment, polish and a wax this is what she looks like. I love it, the handling and the performance - nothing outrageous but for the money it is a bargain: First proper run in it tomorrow - off to Brighton.
