    Key Fob

    Yip, I was quite impressed. Asian guy and I think he works from home. It was not quite clear how to pay on his website so I rang him. He answered the phone!!!!!!! Cheque, postal order or cash. I have not had a cheque book for many years and you can't pay over the phone with the card. Ever get that sinking feeling? Seems that you pay upfront on his website and then send the key. I suppose that he would have to wait 3 days for a cheque to clear. The key came with two pages of "ID Code Entry Procedure". I thought Please No! But, it worked straight out of the bag.

    That's not a bad price at all especially as it had to be sent off...good result!

    At the end of the day I went to this guy: http://www.automobilelocksmith.co.uk/remote-car-key-repair-service.html?car_make_=229 Sent the key away on Friday, it was back next Tuesday. And it works. £18 is not bad.

    ABS and 4WD lights

    Would be worth checking your chassis earth return leads....found a couple of them sheared off on my X-Trail. Look down by the underside of the gearbox to where they connect to the chassis....replace if necessary (cheap and better replacement earth straps in Halfords...did the lot for £10)

    ABS and 4WD lights

    2002 T30 ( 2.0 petrol) The ABS and 4WD warning lights come on intermittently. Usually after starting engine. Switch off and on again and the fault clears. Is this a common fault? If so, does anybody know the cause please? Pancho.

    Key Fob

    My mate was a bit reluctant but has agreed to take a look. I've no idea where the tiny switch should go. Even if I did, my hands are too shaky and eyes too weak to give it a crack. My soldering iron must be 30 years old and is like a poker, even though I have filed the tip down. This is the only car I've ever had with a "smart key". In over 40 years of driving I never had problems with keys.

    lol...the Westie will definitely secure the car. It is an easy job to replace the switched, just fiddly

    Key Fob

    Trevor, thanks for the reply and the idea. I have a mate who is well into electronics. I've emailed him and asked if he will take a look. Can't find a repair shop - yet. There are some keys on ebay, but I have doubts about them. It can't be this easy. Still, I have one working key and that car has done less than 500 miles in 6 months. If that key packs up I will just leave the car unlocked when I go shopping. Don't think anybody is going to nick a 13 year old car with a Westie in the back yapping it's empty head off.

    I have rebuilt a few of these fobs before with a kit from eBay but as you quite rightly state....as you get older it gets more difficult to solder miniature components with an iron due to poor eyesight and shaky hands. I'm sure you might find an electronics repair shop to rebuilt the fobs for you as very little cost. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Nissan-ALMERA-PRIMERA-MICRA-X-TRIAL-NATS-2-button-Remote-key-Fob-Case-REPAIR-KIT/302184778048?epid=814607479&hash=item465b9dc940:g:0HQAAOSwB09YFOI1

    Key Fob

    2005 Nissan Micra, about 57k on the clock. I have two key fobs. I repaired one about , maybe five years ago. It would not unlock the doors. I managed to superglue the micro switch back onto the pcb and solder the connectors on. The micro switch has fallen off again and the repair job is now beyond me ---------- getting old and past it. All I THINK I need is the pcb? Or, does this have to be tuned in with the car or something? I really don't want to get stitched by the main dealer for over 100 quid. I can't find a pcb on the net. Key fob: SIEMENS VDO 5WK4 876/818 433 MHz CE Thanks for any ideas.

    K12 Micra Handbrake Adjustment

    Hi Sith...hopefully this is the same setup as your Micra? If so, then the adjustment is the scrolled wheel at the top of the self-adjusting ratchet lever (which incidentally must be sat within the slot in the self-adjuster rod between the shoes)....take the drum off and turn the wheel until the shoes just touch the drum and refit...try the handbrake to ensure the drum locks and runs free (with a minimal drag) and that should do it.
  21. Alright troops. The short version is I don't know how to adjust my handbrake and I need your help. The longer version is: A few months ago I replaced the rear wheel bearings and noticed the rear shoes needed replacing to. So I did. The weird twisty arm thingy at the top of the drum (that connects the shoes) still haunts my nightmares, but I got the damn things installed. Failed an MOT today on an ineffective handbrake. How do I adjust the handbrake back into working, without losing my mind again? Thanks, Sith

    Debadging a Car

    Decided to remove the badges from the rear of my car the other week (not done the hamburger badge yet), and make this quick video for those who have never done it before: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6cdG_Yw4ugE

    Location of primary fusebox.

    Location of primary fusebox.

    Thanks Trevor. It's a sod to reach, but I have found it. Thanks.
  25. Trevor

    Location of primary fusebox.

    I have found this information for the Suzuki Alto (which is virtually the same car) it is tucked up directly above the 'bonnet pull' handle on the off side and the radio fuse is the blue one right in the corner at the front of this fuse-box.
  26. Evening guys, thought some of you may find this video useful https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzo1V85pkgo
