  1. 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
  2. Nice simple solution if not a little fiddly to resolve 🙂
  3. You could try Sat Nav store and see what they offer, would be cheaper than the dealers for an update
  4. I would ask the question as it sounds like a door lock actuator fault and better for them to foot the bill
  5. Only other thing I can think of is the wiring loom that goes from the drivers door to the A post is broken. Peel back the rubber gaiter and also inspect the connections. Sometimes, when a door is opened and closed over time the wiring breaks where it articulates (also happens on tailgates).
  6. I cannot think of any particular reason the windows are functioning as they are. Maybe best to wait to see what occurs when you fit the new window switch. Let us know the outcome
  7. Hi....welcome to the Club Usually, in the absence of a full size or space-saver spare wheel then there is a 'get you home' puncture repair kit. This consists of a tin of spray foam which is introduced into the tyre via the valve and then the air compressor is connected to inflate the tyre to pressure. Once you have managed to drive to a tyre repair centre then the tyre will usually need to be replaced. Another option is to use 'Slime' in the tyres which prevents punctures and can be driven with it in the tyre permanently.
  8. The usual way to release a bonnet is going through the grill area, either try releasing it with a screwdriver poked through but watch the radiator, etc Alternatively, try removing the grill to access the latch mechanism
  9. Hi....welcome to the Club Wow! a Bluebird.....haven't seen one in a very long time. Definitely worth doing up, would check the fuel lines and drain down any old fuel you can retrieve then look for any rodent damage and it should be as good as new. Would love to see video of the old girl starting up for the first time after her long rest Good to have you onboard and keep us updated on progress
  10. I seem to have dropped in power over the years and increased in economy....sign of ageing or growing up 🙂
  11. Nice! quite a drop in power then 😞
  12. You could try a windscreen fitting company as they can usually obtain obsolete windows
  13. Would check that the sensors read the same resistance as one could be faulty
  14. Hi Andy......welcome to the Club What did you have with 300hp before the Xtrail? Good to have you on board!
  15. Have a look at the reluctor (toothed) ring .....unless it has a Gen2 type wheel bearing type. If the air gap is incorrect or toothed ring damaged/missing then no signal. Also check the connections again to see if pins aligned or damaged One other thing, worth checking resistance of sensors, maybe one is bad?
  16. Could be a broken suspension link which affects the headlamp adjustment
  17. Not sure, but worth experimenting with switching the engine on and off using different methods to see if this invokes the fault. Also, if the battery voltage dips too low by constant restarting then this could also be an issue. Maybe worth turning the stop/start function off also to see if that resolves the issue
  18. There is usually a good detailer in most towns around the UK. Be aware that a detailer is different from a valeter and specialises in refreshing paintwork and vehicle finishing....expect to pay around £80 upwards for a paint refresh
  19. A good detailer should be able to 'mop out' fine scratches and anything else can be smart repaired as opposed to a full repaint and a lot cheaper as well
  20. I believe it is on the rear of the engine lower down ..... near the oil filter possibly?
  21. Feel free to post up more photos if you wish. I suppose the only shows I can think of are JapFest and the like which is more for modified cars. If anyone knows of any shows and events for stock Japanese cars then post them here
  22. If in doubt or if it gets any louder then take it in sooner to be on the safe side
  23. Code 122: Air bag diagnosis sensor unit
  24. It does sound like injectors but also a diesel knock and nothing out of the ordinary from what I could hear....not got the best hearing though
  25. Have increased the capacity for image upload, try that now If it was me, I would keep it as have got rid of too many cars over the years which I regret selling and have no chance of affording them now.
