  1. Try this company as they may have aftermarket lamps that will do the job https://www.headlampsdirect.co.uk/
  2. Its tough to say without experiencing it first hand. It is more likely to be a stabiliser mount as in the gearbox mount as it is under a backwards and forward motion that is causing the noise. Therefore, it has to be a mount or stabiliser bar that controls that motion
  3. I would definitely restore it if there is no corrosion and it seems to be mechanically sound. It will only go up in value over the years and would be a great car to drive around occasionally and take to shows in the future
  4. I think Facebook Marketplace, Gumtree or eBay are the best choices for secondhand ones....seen a few on there over the past year
  5. Hi Philip.....welcome to the Club eBay is definitely the place to source automotive clips and there are specialist online stores that sell specific clips so worth doing a search and comparing your clips to find a suitable replacement
  6. Hi.....welcome to the Club Have you considered getting it wrapped? It may also prove to be more durable than the paint
  7. Hi....welcome to the Club I would have the injectors tested and also a compression test on the cylinders which could also highlight the issue you are experiencing. Let us know how it all goes
  8. Hi....welcome to the Club Not sure if there is a recall issue but definitely worth taking into a Nissan dealer to have the ADAS looked at. It may be performing as it should be may not be capable of recalibrating for some reason, hence Autoglass wouldn't touch it Let us know how you get on with it
  9. Hi.....welcome to the Club Wow! that must have been a spectacular wipe out! If the intake is damaged along with the engine then I guess any competent garage should be able to carry out the work at a reasonable price Let us know how you get on with it
  10. Hi....welcome to the Club Generally, most cleaners are suitable to help break down the carbon but you would also need to drive it hard to build up the pressure which helps to blow out the soot. Worst case scenario would be to get the DPF professionally cleaned and refitted which will almost certainly resolve the issue Let us know how you get on with it
  11. Air Con on Note Acenta Premium models 2013 - 2017. My 14/14 Note, was purchased with FSH as a second owner at very lower mileage in 2017; the air con stopped working in June 2020, had it vacuumn tested, and re-gassed (not at a dealers)or £90 + Vat. By March 2021 it was running warm rather than cold and on inspection (by the same mechanic) it had virtually no refrigerant left in the system. A short lived solution to the original problem.

    I’ve since started looking for another used Note: at the first car dealer I went to the 15/15 Acenta Premium with 48k on the clock, on the forecourt had air con which was clearly not working, both stood on the forecourt and on a short test drive. Today on a visit to another dealership (not Nissan) another Acenta Premium on the site, 15/15, but only 23k mileage, again the air con was not working. 

    I used to own a 2011 N-TEC Diesel - never had a problem with the air con!

    Have others had air con problems with their 2013 - 2017 Acenta Notes, please?

  12. Your local dealership should be able to switch this function off for you
  13. Usually an external antenna should resolve this. Halfords stock these, and reasonably priced
  14. It sounds like the air con system could do with checking out, e.g. gas pressures and then see if this makes a difference with it cutting out
  15. Nice simple solution if not a little fiddly to resolve 🙂
