Can hardly lift boot lid on wife's C/C. Looks difficult to release front end of struts. Has rear seat got to be removed??. If so HOW?? Any help/ideas would be most welcome as I do not want to pay dealer prices

Answers

Not an answer but a request that you share what you DO get? We have the same problem on our c+c and although I can access new struts I can find no help at all in fitting them and as you know they are well buried in the wing(s). Driving me nuts. The boot lid is SO heavy. Dave Tremlin from Somerset

Dave, not as difficult as expected. Hands down back of back seat and YANK it up and forward. Two 10mm bolts secure rear back upright then Yank this out.pull off rubber door seals and remove clips holding plastic panels -small screwdriver will lift plugs and allow fixing to be lifted.You can now get to lower end of struts.Lift boot lid as high as possible and SECURELY prop it up I used some heavy timber. Remove clips and boltson lower ends and clips on upper. Worth doing both sides while you are at it. Makeke sure you get a LEFT and A RIGHT hand strut they are notinterchangeable. They cost about £60 pounds a pair from SGS Engineering or Eurocarparts. Worth having a go good luck. Frank f.morgan from Devon

This may sound stupid but how do you change the side light bulb that is incorporated in the headlight on my Nissan Primera SE+ year 2000 without wrecking the front headlight? I have removed the battery so I can get to the bulb holder but no amount of pulling and twisting seems to budge it?

Answers

There should be a metal strip, usually white sticking out from the headlamp unit. Grip it, quarter twist it, and it should pop out with a bulb holder and side light bulb fixed to it. change your bulb and replacement is the reversal of removing it. Mark Atkinson from Essex

Nissan Micra

I have a Nissan Micra/March, 2006 model, it has been moving quite well until it started dragging (failing to pull as expected) and then pick up after some few minutes. Recently the engine started vibrating and humming. I changed the petrol pump, it worked and performed perfectly well for 5 km and then went back to dragging and failing to accelerate, even if I push down the gas pedal. Also the engine sound was not so smooth. Could it be the pump or the filter? Is there a way of cleaning the petrol filter system? This filter system is expensive to replace where I am.

The mechanic has also checked the trottlebody but has not removed or cleaned it. I have also had the gas filter checked and replaced as there was build up.

Nissan Micra C+C

One of the gas struts in the boot of my wife’s Nissan Micra C+C has failed, making it very heavy to lift (almost impossible for her). Our local dealer has quoted £90 for a pair of gas struts plus £650 in labour to replace them. They say the whole of the roof mechanism has to be removed! I can’t believe Nissan would make it that difficult and I noticed someone said that he had changed them on his daughter’s car. Can anyone offer information/advice on how difficult or easy it actually is and maybe point me in the direction of some instructions? Thanks.

Hi, I have the same problem with my micra c+c... Dealers have quoted me the same.. I've been holding mine up with a broom handle, I'm sure it would decapitate my head if my broom fails.. Anyhow I've been to a local garage.. They gave me a price for part... But carnt give me a price on fitting as they say they will have to remove backseats it's a big job... So I won't no the price until they have finished the job, which isn't much good to me, I need to know the price before hand, so I've looked on eBay can get struts £24 for 2... It also shows how to fit, which takes the guy 5 mins, looks very easy for a fella anyway.. So I would also love a reply, as I think as a woman knowing nothing about cars, there trying to rip me off... Cheers Belinda :-( Belinda from South Yorkshire

I would suggest if your engine has a turbo (I think it should have), I suspect it has issues. Check it by removing the big air pipe on the cold side and see that it has no major oil residue inside. Generally the power issue is related to the turbo condition. Otherwise ask your mech to calibrate the injectors (piezo-electric injectors). Had the same issue with D40. Creed from Botswana

Nissan Almera

The car jerks and cuts off while driving. No warning. While driving I would see the dashboard lights all turned on, the engine would have cut off at that time. This does not happen frequently, (once in a very long time). Sometimes while driving the car would behave as if I am driving with the handbrake on, you would feel that the engine is behaving as if I stepped on the brake pedal, all of a sudden it will pick up speed and drive normally as if nothing happened. What is the problem? This car started misbehaving last year November. Different mechanics are suspecting different things ranging from pencil coils, sensors, petrol filters and petrol pump. What is the problem? I see many people have similar issues with this car, is it a manufacturer's fault? Car make: Nissan Almera, year 2005, engine capacity: 1.6

Answers

My Nissan Almera cuts quite often. It is a 2004 automatic. Please suggest what could be wrong because my mechanic changed the crank and cam sensors. Already changed filters and oil. Winifred Jeremiah from Grenada
