Wiper blades are something, like brake pads and tyres, that I always buy quality rather than budget, your choice of course...............(However I do not, of course, pay list price and can usually find a worthwhile discount supplier)Right I am today going to start to prepare some parts I can do easily that I know have a good chance of being needed for the next service
First item on my list is windscreen wipers (rear isn't important for the service) but I'm going to change them as a whole.
So here I have listed the items I'm looking at. Will also need to check fitment will be correct before buying.
These are the cheapest of the cheap wipers the set costing 7 pound...
VistaPro Wiper Blade (Universal Wiper Blade Standard - 18 Inch) (Front-Left-Passenger Side)
VistaPro Wiper Blade (Universal Wiper Blade Standard - 21 Inch) (Driver side-Front-Right)
VistaPro Wiper Blade (Rear Wiper Blade - 12L) (Rear)
Following this I'm going to replace the tyres as soon as possible
Starting with the front two and possibly just replacing the set.
Autosol Alumnum polish did same job to lights of significant other. It doesn't know is it polishing metal or plastic...So I gave the K2 Lamp Doctor a spin.
The drill batteries didn't last as long as I expected.
So finished by hand.
Seems to smell a lot like brasso to me this product.
It has however done a good job of removing the hazed look..
Okay boring stuff out of the way.
The front and rear after use.
I would definitely recommend using this after sanding and I know that it would have made a better finish with higher grit.
The rear lights did not really need any but wanted to see what it would perform like on lights that are in decent condition they only had a manual buff.

I've had two micras do this. Like a comedy starter noise... a bit like an old Leyland A series starter sound? Even my new one with only 37k on it has done it once or twice when cold. Starters are cheap for Micras... even new, so I wouldn't worry. My old one got to the stage where it did it consitently, and I left it like that for around 18 months and it never actually failed to start... just used to turn heads in car parks LOL.Had a small problem with the starter making a horrible noise the other day.
