    Preventing Paint Peel?

    Paint is starting to peel off the tailgate of my silver 2001 K11. I know this is a common problem, but I'm wondering is there any PREVENTATIVE measures you can take, to stop it happening in the first place? I'm planning to try and source a clean "unpeeled" tailgate from the scrappers and...

    Washer Pump Faulty

    My washer pump has recently stopped working. I've disconnected the water pipe where it feeds into the jets and no water is coming out of the pipe when the pump is activated - so I know it's not blocked jets. The pump is making the usual noise when activated, so there is power to it. Looking...

    K11 Filler Neck Needed

    Hi Could do with a replacement petrol pipe filler neck for my 2001 K11 Anyone have a used one in good condition at a sensible price? The hole in my fuel pipe must be high up, because it doesn't leak if I trickle fuel in really slowly - if I just pour it in at full speed I get a big puddle of...

    Nissan Datascan II for K11

    Thinking about getting the Datascan II software, but I read a forum post by someone who said they tried it with their K11 and experienced limited functions. It could read data, but the sections where you could make adjustments to base idle and ignition timing were greyed out. Is anyone using...

I've had a problem with a low idle when warm for some time and after plugging in my OBD2 scanner it was showing a TPS reading of around 7% at idle - I...

    I have a 2001 K11 I'm trying to remove my MAF sensor to give it a clean (with CNC cleaner), or if that doesn't do the trick, replace it - usual problem, poor idle etc No problem undoing the screws - the former owner replaced the security ones with standard flat head screws - my question is how...

    Bosch FR8DCX Plugs

    The owners manual of my 2001 K11 says to use Bosch FR8DCX spark plugs. When I look on ebay, I see FR8DCX and FR8DCX+ Can anyone explain what difference the "+" makes? I currently have NGK plugs and I'm having a slight problem at low idle speeds when the car is in neutral - the engine revs...

    Fuel Filler Cap and MIL

    So I put some fuel into my new K11 Micra for the first time a few days ago - today I went for the first reasonably long drive since doing that (did a couple of very short trips earlier, without incident) and the Malfunction Indicator Light came on about 30 minutes into the journey (steady, not...

    Post 2000 K11

    Hi Just bought a 2001 Y reg K11 1.0 S 28K genuine mileage, FSH to the year dot, not a spot of rust anywhere - drives like a brand new car - so I'm very happy, and loving my new Micra. However, since I looked into Micra's in more detail, it seems the knowledgeable owners (you guys) are...
