    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.
  10. 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.

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

    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.
  15. Evening guys, thought some of you may find this video useful https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzo1V85pkgo

    Location of primary fusebox.

    Hi there. Can anybody point me in the right direction. I am trying to locate the interior fuse board for my Pixo. So far I have only found the one in the engine compartment. I have tried to search the internet, but can't seem to find a definite answer. Thanks fellow drivers.

    Stone Chip Repair

    Within the first 500 miles of its life, the Pulsar picked up 3 stone chips! Last weekend I finally got around to sorting them out. In case anyone needs any tips, I made a short video of the process. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgFlOQhVrHo Side note: 4 colour layers may have been too much as the clear coat still sits a little proud.

    Hi - Newbie

    Hi Andrew....welcome to the Forum Good to have you onboard

    Changing battery??

    Has it definitely got a 'Stop / Start' specification battery as these have a deeper cell charge capacity than a standard battery? If so, then I wouldn't worry too much about driving it as is...just won't have the stop/start function which you should be able to switch off anyway

    Changing battery??

    Ok so car has not reset itself and the warning is still showing. Our machanic friend put his diagnostic laptop on it on friday and he said that no fault are on the ECU so he cant understand why its not working?!?! We are going away in a few weeks and i dont like driving for long distances with any problems! Not sure what else to do???

    Qashqai - Clutch Failure after 1987 miles !

    Sorry to hear that .... it does seem that unless there is a trend which is developing over time (e.g. Honda clutches which are as weak as wet cardboard) then it doesn't register as a fault. Rather frustrating on your behalf I would imagine....maybe worth getting it sold whilst it has a new clutch in it?

    Qashqai - Clutch Failure after 1987 miles !

    Sadly not! We had to pay the cost of replacement Clutch of £1800 plus an AA report of £200. The AA sent ACE (Automotive Consulting Engineers Ltd) to carry out the inspection which concluded that the Clutch had over heated which caused the failure. No suggestion as to cause other than abuse and referred to Towing in the report which did not mention that there is not a Tow Bar on the car! The report appeared to me to have a large element of "cut and paste" about it. I tried to contact ACE for more details of the inspection but they did not respond I contacted Nissan and asked if they could Inspect the components and the Dual Mass Fly Wheel, they declined and suggested I look on the Internet to find someone to inspect it but could not suggest anyone. The Nissan "Adviser" declined to discuss the matter any further with me and refused to put through to a Manager. We reject the suggestion that we "ride" the clutch as there is adequate spec by the clutch pedal to rest the foot and we have suddenly become bad drivers. I took legal advise and my Solicitor advised that we could become involved in a costly dispute. We are left with a car that my wife is reluctant to drive as she has lost faith in it. We ask ourselves three questions. Would we buy another Nissan, would we recommend a friend to buy a Nissan and are we satisfied with Nissan's Customer Care? NO, NO, ABSOLUTELY NOT.
