Hi. I've got my wife a 99 1.0 micra with 100000 km's on it. In order to ensure flawlessly mornig starts, I changed the distributor cab, plugs and cable. And of course oil, filter and fuel filter. The car ran smootly when we got it. Now it stutters and cuts out all the time. Put the old parts back on - same problem. What have I done wrong? /Jakob

The LCD display problem is caused by the degradation of the electrical connection between the conductive connections on the internal rear lower edge of the display and corresponding connections on the PCB driving this display from the radio‚Äôs circuit board. This multiple connection between is made by a thin rubbery conductive gasket (Elastomer) about the size of a match stick. The displays construction squashes this elastomer between the display and the board. It is however susceptible to failure. This manifest itself as intermittent loss of the part of the display to eventual complete failure. As for fixing it, not very likely I am afraid replacement parts will no longer be available, removal and stripping down the radio, cleaning the contacts on the PCB and the glass display and the elastomer with isopropanol (wearing cotton gloves to avoid contamination with grease from your hands) and rebuilding the unit, fixes it sometimes but generally not for long. I believe it is a standard size radio fitting so if you can afford it fit a new radio I have used Highway H240Di series before, seem excellent its over £100 but all the usual radio stations and dab and blue tooth (hands free phone) and aux socket, best results with internal screen mount dab radio aerial.

After 11 years with no problems at all, the PS (power steering) light came on and I had to stop as the steering was too heavy. The problem went away almost immediately and roadside assistance gave me the confidence to continue my journey. All seems fine a day later but it was a scary experience and has knocked my confidence in making long journeys. Will it happen again? Can it be easily fixed?

The electric Power Steering motor is on the way out. This will become more frequent occurence, until you change the part of the steering column that houses the above mentioned electric motor. It is quite costly at the garage or dealer. I had that problem, got the part on E-bay, out of a used vehicle, cost £90, local (friend) mechanic fitted it for another £100, but I have no guarantee how long it will last. It is a known weak point. Good luck! Adam from Cambridgeshire

I have noticed a red light about 45degrees down and to the right of the steering wheel, positioned next to the button that adjusts the wing mirrors. I have only noticed it recently. Usually when in a driving position, it is obscured from view by the positioning of the wheel and my arm. I don't know if it has always been there and I just hadn't noticed or whether it is a new light. I have no idea what it means- can anyone enlighten me?

Nissan Micra

Dear Helpers I have just had the distributor cap on my Nissan Micra 1999 replaced, costing me over £300, last week. However, when I took the car out today, it seemed that the car kept losing power / juddering and then at one point the engine light began to flash orange and it lost power completely. I was able to pull over and restart the car, to get it home. However, having spent such a great deal already on a car costing £750, I'm in a dilemma about how to deal with this. Is it the garage's obligation to ensure the part they sold me (telling me that was what the problem was), fixes the issue I originally went to them about and also are you able to suggest what might be the problem, technically please? Any help greatly appreciated. Best Wishes Joe

I have an 09 Micra Visia diesel 1500 with 30k miles on the clock. A rod has dropped and gone through the engine. I know the warranty is only for 5 years but surely a car this old and with low mileage wouldn't have such a major problem?

I have had my car for 6 months now, been running a dream, perfect first car, but in the last couple of weeks I have noticed a rattling coming from near my engine. I have put this down to either the cam belt going (unsure as to when it was last changed), or my exhaust bracket is loose/breaking. My local garage said it`ll most likely be the exhaust bracket. If it is my exhaust bracket what is the best/cheapest way to fix it? I'm not very car savvy but if I can fix it myself I will give it a go. Thanks
