    Expansion tank level?

    Yeah! I don't quite know where the level should be, but all seems to be fine. Cheers for asking.

    Expansion tank level?

    Steve P . is it still running okay and the levels where it should be ?

    Wiper Blades

    I would recommend traditional wiper blades over silicon blades as they are quieter and just as efficient as the silicons which become more noisier and less efficient over a short space of time.

    Wiper Blades

    Morning All, Just want advice need to renew wiper blades on my 2017 t32 tekna both fronts and maybe rear. Looking for recommendations on which ones to buy. Thanks

    Expansion tank level?

    Cheers for that Trevor. I had not put as much in as I thought. I've run the engine up for 15 mins and all seems fine.

    Expansion tank level?

    It would definitely be a good idea to remove some of the coolant (maybe see if there is a release tap at the bottom of the radiator to let some out). If too much coolant is present then the pressure would increase and blow the expansion bottle pressure cap...tends to leave a mess everywhere....best to drain to the specified level.

    Expansion tank level?

    The expansion tank looked a bit low, so I topped it up with anti-freeze. Can't see any leaks. The car has not moved for weeks. I may have put a bit too much in the tank. Will I cause any damage when driving, or will any excess just get blown out? Thanks.

    nissan sunny 1989 b12 parts wanted

    Hi....welcome to the Forum Here are some links that may be of use to you in your search. Someone breaking a Sunny for parts: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BREAKING-1989-NISSAN-SUNNY-1-3-DX-ESTATE-SPARE-PARTS-WHEEL-NUT/283366866619?hash=item41f9fb3ebb:g:VAAAAOSwAhtcWYvp Window Regulator: https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_osacat=0&_odkw=1989+nissan+sunny+parts&_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=1989+nissan+sunny+window+regulator&_sacat=0 Central Locking Solenoid: https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_osacat=0&_odkw=1989+nissan+sunny+window+regulator&_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=1989+nissan+sunny+central+locking+solenoid&_sacat=0
  11. hi all, i am looking for some parts for my 1989 nissan sunny 5 door b12 model. i need the fuel guage voltage regulator, front passenger side electric window regulator and the central locking actuator too, if anyone could help me i'd be very grateful. all the best and fingers crossed.
  12. It does sound like that is the case. I would take the cover off the relay and manually move the contact to see if it energises and if it does then it is either going to be an input signal (voltage) missing or a poor earth
  13. OK, just realised this is an old thread, but still might help someone. I've replaced the hazard switch and the flasher unit. My circuit tester lights when it touches the input terminal of the flasher unit, but not when it touches either of the other terminals. Does that mean the replacement flasher unit is faulty?
  14. has any sold there NISSAN cherised number any one got interesting NISSAN plates weres the best place to sell my old primera has now gone to the scrap yard in the sky, so thought about selling mine but unsure were to go. any advice would be welcome thank you
  15. Hi all, I have the same problem but haven't found the cause yet. Fuses all look OK. I've changed the hazard switch and the flasher unit so far. Doing old-fashioned hand signals for now, as in 1960s Highway Code! One tip though - when you change the flasher unit, take the instrument panel cover off first (1 Phillips screw under the fascia each side of the steering wheel) so that you can see what you're doing. Cheers, Nick
  16. Just recently taken delivery of a 2015 plate ink-blue Qashqai Tekna. Lovin' it apart from the annoying front parking sensor issue. Hopefully get the dealer to rectify that...

    Sump removal

    As far as I can remember it should clear the subframe and come straight down. Clean up and replace the gasket and seal and do not overtighten bolts...should do the trick

    Sump removal

    Hi , my daughters 2004 1.2 SE as a small sump leak that was picked up on at it's MOT...The mechanic said he patched it up and it was Ok charged her £40 to do it . However i noticed that when it was on my drive it was still leaking and to be honest i would rather she got it replaced and i was wondering if it's a straight forward as it looks ,i would have to do it via front ramps and it looks like just 10mm bolts remove clean and replace with the correct sealer etc...Anyone any help or advice before i start it ..Thanks

    Wiper linkage?

    Yow! To be quite honest I'm getting fed up of chucking money at a car that does about 6 miles per week. I look after a mate's dog 3 days per week and take him home, but the owner could always pick him up. I think the main reason I keep that car is if my little dog goes poorly and I need to take her to the vets. A taxi is out of the question. All taxi drivers around here are Muslime and they will not carry a dog.

    Wiper linkage?

    A lot of money and definitely a weak point 😞

    Wiper linkage?

    Seems that the linkage is a weak point on Micras, loads on ebay, but I could not expect my garage to buy from them. Seems a new part costs £160 from the main dealer, mine cost £98.

    Expansion tank level?

    it is a bit quiet on here at the moment so don't mind the conversation....bit lonely otherwise 🙂
  23. Trevor

    Wiper linkage?

    Oh dear! I am surprised that the linkage failed rather than the wiper blades splitting although I have seen this several times on MGF and TF when the linkage mechanism was so weak that it was the first point of destruction. Considering they gave you a courtesy car and that's an all-in price, its not that bad really for a dealership
  24. 2015 Micra. The front wipers stopped working last week, possibly because some idiot turned them on when they were frozen solid. The idiot did know better. :-( Garage gave me car to go home in and rang me when the job was done. After market parts and labour plus VAT = £178. Is this a reasonable price?
  25. Steve P

    Expansion tank level?

    Site seems to having problems? Yours is a good idea. Thing is I would have to drain a bit out of the radiator which is full, and I don't want to do that - even if i knew how to do it. Just checked on a cold engine. The reservoir looks about just over half full, it gets to 3/4 full when the engine is hot. No drips! Maybe my garage tightened something up. Cheers for all of your help. You seem to be the only poster here. Or am I posting to the wrong forum subject?
  26. glad you got there in the end and thanks for sharing the information that could help anyone else in the same situation.
