  1. I've just fitted the rear double USB kit to my 2017 X-trail. Got to have it to keep the kids devices charged on long journeys. I thought I'd upload the instructions, for anyone who wanted to take a look before they decided to do it. I couldn't see them for the X-Trail anywhere, saw some for the Qashqai. Some cutting is involved, which didn't bother me, but might be a bit scary for some people. I was going to put USB ports in the back either way, but this kit was much easier as it its plug and play from the 12v socket in the centre console storage bin. The instructions didn't make much sense to me, but I will add that in Figure 10, it isn't clear that there is a torx head screw to undo, so you can pull the rear panel off with the fans on. You only need to remove this and not the whole lid of the storage bin. To access the screws, there is rectangle piece between the hinges of the lid, that you can just unclip. It does come with cutting template to line up where you need to cut. I was hoping to fit the ports closer to the top, so the kids don't break it, or any cables when getting in and out, but space is restricted behind the panel, so it does need to be done at the bottom.

  2. Hi guys I'm new to the group hoping to buy a 2018 nissan micra 1.5dci with 18k on the clock... im abit unsure if I should buy it as I only seem to find negative reviews. I was wondering if anyone had any positive experiences with the micra. How reliable are they? What are the common faults etc... Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks Luke

  4. I've just got off the phone to Nissan (Colebrook way, Andover) they've advised me to take it back to the garage that fit the head gasket and check that they've plugged the sensor in properly. I've basically got to start at the beginning and work out the problem. On a positive note the sensor light stayed off for the mot and passed today 🙌 booked in next Friday (once I'm out of isolation). Fingers crossed its something so simple 🤞

  6. I think its a very handy accessory. I'm considering adding another towards the rear of the car. Cross referencing the part numbers for the 12v power socket in the centre console box, and the one at the rear of the car, they have the same part numbers. Centre console: Boot: So that does technically mean that the cabling that comes with the usb package, should fit the onto the wiring loom in the boot also. I'll rake a chance and order one, and see what space there is to mount this in the 3rd row of seating/boot area. For information, I bought the kit for £21 from a Renault parts dealer on ebay. Other sellers have them on there for up to £68. So worth it, I believe for an OEM part.

  9. Have just herd back from the garage. The thermostats have not needed to be replaced. There's a sealent that another garage put on the gasket as a temporary fix that's got into the radiator that's stopped the flow of air into 1 of the pipes. The radiator is in Amsterdam and it's setting me back just under £500 for parts and labour. Just the total on repairs has set us back 3 grand in the last 6 months (first year on finance so had to pay it with no option) and now without a car for the next 7 to 10 days.😭
