  2. Hi Trevor I have passed this info to Paul and he will give them a ring so between the two companies hopefully one will come up trumps. Many thanks Mike
  3. I think the way I would approach is that the bearing is just that....a bearing. Most bearing companies will treat it as that and measure the internal and external sizes, type of bearing, load and speed rating and then find you a suitable replacement (which may have a higher revolution speed or load rating) but I could almost guarantee that there will be something available, just not listed as a replacement Nissan wheel bearing. Try these guys: http://www.ashleypower.co.uk/
  4. Hi Trevor Will pass this info on to Paul. In the meantime an update on where we are at present. Paul contacted a company in Southampton called Govindas Auto who had been suggested as a possible source for the bearings. According to their website they carry a stock of parts for older Datsun & Nissan vehicles yesterday morning. They got back to him later that day to say that he couldn't get any. Paul also finally got a response from the major Nissan dealer in the area who, after checking, said that that particular size of bearing and the relevant hub was now obsolete and unobtainable anywhere. Even Japan did not have any. They said Nissan had only used it in production for 2 years before changing to the smaller size that it seems everyone now supplies. When Paul asked for any suggestions to resolve the matter their response was "TOUGH!!!" and offered no help at all which from my dealings with Nissan dealers over the years is consistent with their approach to customer service. Totally useless. Paul is currently talking to a bearing company in Alfreton. They said that if he takes the hub assembly to them they will see if they can provide a solution so fingers crossed. Not sure what to do if they or Ashley Bearings can't supply. Will keep you updated. Regards Mike Read more: http://datsunclubuk.proboards.com/thread/4323/1996-nissan-rear-wheel-bearings#ixzz5YIEUXHiH
  5. Hi Mike I have always gone to a bearing specialist supplier when I have encountered an odd one like this. May not be close to you but Ashley Bearings in Poole always come up trumps. Cheers, Trevor
  6. Hi I own a 1996 Nissan QX 3ltr SEL. I am currently having trouble sourcing rear wheel bearings for it. My friend who runs a garage says that the bearings I need have an internal diameter of 30mm whilst the external is 72mm. He has tried several companies whose adverts say they will fit my car but when they arrive they are too small - around 26mm internal and 50mm external. The bearing is too small to fit into the hub and of course it won’t fit on the shaft. He has even tried buying the complete hub and bearing together as a kit but they still supply the wrong ones. Would appreciate it if someone has had this problem in the past and can let me know where I can purchase the correct parts. Many thanks Mike

    Tiny oil leak

    Cheers for the reply. Yes, I will ask the question.

    Tiny oil leak

    I think I would ask them whilst its in for MOT as to where the leak is likely to be coming from while they have the car in the air Wouldn't think it would affect much in the way of safety if it is just a drop once in a while

    Tiny oil leak

    My Micra has, I think, a tiny oil leak. I'm not 100 % sure that it is leaking. Sometimes I can see a tiny drip mark on the drive. Sometimes there is not a drip mark. Level on the dipstick has not changed. Is this enough to fail the MoT? 2005 with 57k on the clock. Now does less than 10 miles per week. I'm an old man.

    Juke washer jets.

    Usually, they are held in place by a spring clip which is part of the jet itself. Try gently moving the jet either backwards or forwards against any spring pressure to release the jet

    Juke washer jets.

    Chaps, any guidance how you change a windscreen washer jet. Juke Connecta 2017, I am sure the item is common. Anyone know if they prise out? Cheers TIA Mark

    High revs

    Thank you for the reply Trevor. Will get that looked at. Cheers again. Andy

    High revs

    I would advise looking at the Coolant Temperature Sensor as a possible candidate for replacement....it's the time of year for these to fail

    High revs

    Hi all hope some one can help. I have a automatic 2l x trail. I have noticed the last few mornings that firsts thing in the morning that the revs are very high. I could be doing 10 mph but the revs are about 2000. It is like this till the engine has heated up. Ps the weather here has got frosty in the mornings. Does anyone else have this problem. Cheers Andy

    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.

    Key Fob

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

    Key Fob

    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.

    lol...that's the law according to sod !

    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.
  23. Trevor

    Key Fob

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

    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.

    Key Fob

    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.
