Nissan Almera Tino

Hi, I have a Nissan Almera Tino 2001 reg. I seem to have a leak. I keep finding my driver`s side footwell and both the floor storage spaces at the back full of water. I`ve had the carpet up and had the scuttle grill off to check for blockages but I couldn't see any. I`ve also checked the sunroof and the drains seem clear, could you help me please?

Answers

Hi James, Did you find the source of your Almera Tino driver's side footwell leak? My Tino has a similar problem. Have checked obvious places where water might enter without success. Had windscreen removed and refitted and the fitter thought that was the likely source. But after more rain not even Cumbrian rain(!) the carpet is soaked again, just having got it dry! Sunroof drains are clear, scuttle looks clear of water. A mystery! Where was the water entering your Tino? Any help much appreciated. KInd regards, Rob.

Hi rob,yes I found the leak in the end,my wife sat in the car wile I had a hosepipe running constantly over the car,turned out it was pouring in through the sunroof seems and filling the car full of water. james from Cumbria

Hi James, Thanks for your quick reply. Coming around to the hosepipe suggestion as the only way to see where the water might be entering. Doesn't appear to be the sunroof but with water you never can be sure! Windscreen guy commented Nissan sunroofs are not usually troublesome. But there are always exceptions! Thanks again, best wishes, Rob. robert meadows from Northamptonshire

we have a 2005 tino 1.8 petrol the fuel economy was 34.5 mpg but all of a sudden is doing 22mpg any ideas

Answers

It could be a number of things, what I would check in no particular order, are the lamda sensors (o2 sensor). Also the mass airflow sensor. Check for leaks from the vacuum hose. It could mean that the throttle body needs cleaning/changing or the EGR valve needs replacing. Lamda sensors are usually pretty expensive especially if it's post cat. The cheapest option is smoke test to check for any leaks and replacing the necessary hoses if a leak is found. Craig from Lincolnshire

Hi I have a problem with my Nissan tino the airbag light doesn't come off is there anyone who have ever experienced the same thing?

Answers

I had this same problem and it turned out to be a dodgy connection under the passenger seat. Unplug the connector and give it a clean with electrical cleaner and plug it back in. That may solve the problem. gareth from Lancashire

To reset the airbag warning light do this ... f you have the airbag light blinking here is how to reset it: 1. Turn the key from off to on. 2. Watch the airbag light closely. It will stay on for a few secs. and then as soon as it blinks off (the start of the flashing), turn the key off instantly. 3. Count to 5 (1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi . . . .) 4. Repeat steps 1-3 two more times until you have done the cycle three times. 5. Now turn the key on and watch the light. It will start blinking in a different, slower manner. This is diagnostic mode. You can watch this for a little while, no hurry. 6. Now turn the key off again, Count to 5 like in step 3 again, and turn back on. If the procedure worked, the airbag light will not be flashing. If it does not work the first time, just repeat the steps again. Dont forget to check the wire connecters under the passenger seat, if the seat s regulary moved it loosens the connector .

Nissan Almera Tino

I have a Nissan Tino S Automatic 1.8 . ( 2003 ) . I bought it secondhand in 2009 and have had no problems - except that I have lots of problems with condensation inside the car. There doesn't seem to be any water collecting in the front footwells and , although I have had the windscreen replaced in Oct. 2010 .\ I wonder if you can help

Answers

Hi. I have the same problem 90% of time. I did have a leak which has now been solved and the car is dry. The condensation seems worse when I have driven the car with the heater on and then parked up all day. The only possible explanation I have come up with is the car's interior temperature reacting with the outside varying temperature! Else I'm at a loss for explanation. H. Jones from Bath and North East Somerset

To get rid of condesation i always use the aircon ,if this does not clear the mist, if may be that your aircon needs topping up ,its approx £35 in my area. Rob from Warwickshire

The windscreen wipers will not switch off on the lever but only by turning the ignition off? Also the interval wipe is not working - is there a simple cure for this?

Answers

Water ingress into the wiper motor is a common fault. I had same issue recently but with one of two outcomes. Either has your problem and won't switch off, or as I had stopped working all together. I managed to get a replacement from a scrapyard but it has also now taken in water. I now have your problem and they won't switch off. I 'sorted it' with a screw into the top dashboard and an elastic band which is set to hold the wiper switch in the one wipe manual mode. i.e. in the up position and when I want them off, I move the switch back down manually as the elastic is only strong enough to hold it up but not pull it up... Been like this now for six months and is still working fine... Try it All the best J jazzas from South Lanarkshire

This one drove me round the bend looking for it..... The boot handle itself sticks. When you pull it to open the boot it does not return fully and then it won't work next time. Put your fingers into the handle as normal but push BACK first. It will then open as normal. Make sure it is pushed back afterwards or it will not lock, or it might just half lock and fly open.
