I discovered this forum completely by accident while looking for a service-and-repair manual for my wife's 2015 Micra. I hate to be a Debby-Downer, but I am not the least impressed with this car. It has been more trouble than it's worth since the warranty expired, to say nothing of the fact that someone at the Nissan dealership in a nearby town broke the rear mount for the right-side headlight assembly (and denied it!), and a replacement cost $500 plus labour to install, and it isn't even a genuine Nissan part.
Now what I need to do is change the VVT solenoid ($407 at the Nissan dealership, and on back order), but I can't put the new one in until I can get what's left of the old one out. It broke while I was trying to extract it, and seems to have rusted in place. Has anyone got any ideas?
Also, I think I need to repair or replace the transmission cooling line, as the car dumped all of its transmission fluid on my driveway.
I need to get this done soon, as I'm going to need to do some work on my 2010 Toyota Matrix (I only have THAT car because you don't say no to a free car, but it's a far nicer car to drive than the Micra). How I miss my 2002 VW Jetta TDI! That car had me spoiled for most others.
I am a resident of Carleton Place, Ontario, by the way.
