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/...
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...
Some of you may remember me from a while back and you were all great in steering me on the way looking after my 160sr especially Guys amazing Micra website.
Due to circumstances changing with a great deal of sorrow Im letting her go for a diesel.
under 64000 miles
about 5 months mot...
I think the website describes it better than I could:
Kop Hill, Princes Risborough is one of the oldest Hill Climb venues in England, it was one of several hill climbs in the Chilterns and the first recorded races were in 1910. It became a major event on the motor sports car and motorcycle...
Seems a fair price if anyone interested:
No I have nothing to do with the sale!
This morning, when accelerating the car was juddering quite badly and felt like it had flat spots through accellaration and crusing at low revs.
It felt like fuels starvation or some sort of electrical issue.
No lights on the dashboard and the engine sounded fine, any ideas...its the first wet...
Since getting my 160sr the front breaks have had a nasty squeal on the intial part of travel ( unless I break hard).
I was hoping it was jusy a glazing issue and a few heavy breakinigs would clear the issue but no.
So is it a case of new pads or discs as well?
And I wonder if there is a...
Out to my car this morning to find someone has bashed in to the rear quater.
Its only neighbours who park near by.
I hope the person I think it is has the decency to pop in this evening and have the danglies to own up.
Accidents happen - its a fact of life which I can live with but spineless...
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...
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?
This is my girlfriends car:
Not everyones cup of tea but she absolutely loves it, to afford it she had to give up quite a few luxuries and there will not be holidays for a few years but she accepts it and enjoys owning it.
Always washing it, carfull where it is parked - you know the sort...
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.
Would like to get the parrot MKI9000 in my K12, it has the double din 6 cd changer, is this a "reasonably" straight forward job or is this best left to "them that know". Thanks to the great tutorial on http://www.micrak12.com/radio.htm I have no worry about accessing the head unit but will I be...
