Re: auto gearbox fault Cvt

Jigs, You dont need to buy new, you can get the gearbox repaired. I did a quick Google Search. I'm sure there are many many more gearbox repairers. http://www.reconditioned-gearbox.co.uk/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI2drZjcCE2AIVwbgbCh1TTwk1EAMYASAAEgIUBfD_BwE https://www.stephensengineering.co.uk/automatic-tr...

Re: DPF issue

I've never had a DPF cleaned but have read on other forums that the DPF can be removed & cleaned, its not always necessary to replace it. Here is a google link to search for DPF cleaning. https://www.google.co.uk/search?ei=MjYpWsedBciHgAai0rWwAg&q=DPF+removal+cleaning&oq=DPF+removal+cleaning&gs_l=ps...

Re: Pedal height causing pain!

On another note it may help if someone can assess you whilst sat in the seat (Door open from the side). Obviously a professional should ideally do this and probably would cost no more than say £50, this is just a guess. If you don’t wish to pay for a professional then get a friend or knowledgeable p...

Re: Nissan Kicks USA

Looks like a rebranded Renalt Captur. So they are doing the same as they did with the QQ and Kadjar.

Re: Not Starting having to Hand Prime

Almost all cars will have a low pressure pump in the fuel tank as sucking the fuel out is just a bad idea in many ways, cavitation is but just one issue with sucking instead of pushing.

has the qashqai got a prime pump in the fuel tank like the citroen xsara picasso had? If so it could be that.

Re: Trickling water sound

Does not look like there are any special bleed points apart from the area where it says disconnect the heater hose & enhance as high as possible. I guess this means raise it up to get the air out. Looks easy enough to do as the instructions are very clear.

Re: Led low beam bulb replacements

Also, here is another thought. Its about the LUX, or the amount of light being emitted by LED. Where do you think that huge increase in light output goes after it hits the road? That's right, it bounces off the road & hits the on coming driver right in the face. So now he has light from super bright...

Re: Led low beam bulb replacements

Its all about the positioning of the light source relative to that cut-off, the focus of the reflector and how the bulb emits its light. Take a look at this picture of different bulb types & where the light would shine. Each bulb will throw light different ways. please please watch the YouTube Vide...

Re: Trickling water sound

This is not always the case. There are some systems that are so designed that you really do need to bleed at least part of the system. I'm sure there is at least one very helpful chap who can show a schematic of the bleed points ;) No wet carpets ! sounds like it's air trapped in the cooling system ...
