Re: Air Con Problem

Best bet, try and find an auto aircon specialist in your area. Main dealers, imo, are general technicians and not specialist engineers.

Re: Main dealer servicing

[/quote] I wonder what extra they do in the annual service apart from change the air filter maybe ? And everything else would be just checks like a mini mot 😉 [/quote] Just recently had a minor service at my main dealer and they took a video of the car showing everything that will need looking at so...

Re: Computer like noises from under the dash.

Daft question, why would the engine warning light come on for a failed glowplug? I could understand the glowplug light coming on not engine management light. Maybe there is something more to this.

Re: Air Con Yearly Regas Needed

Do you have an extended warranty? Luckily we have an extended Nissan warranty, tbh the Dealership in Stirling have always been excellent with regards to faults and Warranty claims. It was in with them I believe last August with exactly the same issue, hissing/gurgling sounds coming from the climate...

Re: Air Con Yearly Regas Needed

My 2014 QQ needed a new condenser, the factory fitted one is crap and fails all over. If you can see the condenser, you will see dark patches all over it, that is leaks.

Thank you Pandjh and QaiFan :-)

The glass roof was a must as it makes the car so light and airy, j

Cheers
And so bloody hot when the sun is out :D I have a glass roof in my QQ and summer months the roof blind is closed. But it is great when it is cooler for the other 350 days :D

Re: Unsure on performance

Just saw your photos, I am sure the 0216 on the bottom picture relates to the year of manufacture 2016, and personally I would not drive on motorways with those cracks.

Re: Unsure on performance

I drive the 1.6 diesel with a CVT auto box, the big problem with CVT is they are quite happy to let the engine rev without appearing to go. If you use the cruise control I have found at the higher motorway speeds this seems to accelerate quicker. When you brake, you disengage the cruise control, if ...

Re: Worth buying a reconditioned engine?

Thanks all! In the end I went on the basis of Checkatrade reviews, and have gone with Regal Engines - quote £2450 plus VAT. A bit more than some, but all the lower quotes were from companies with no reviews of any sort on Google as far as I can see. Fingers crossed! Reviews can be "manufacture...

Re: Worth buying a reconditioned engine?

OK, I have gone into Checkatrade and google - sounds like it's potentially a solution though. If anyone knows any reputable and relatively cheap services in Essex then please shout! No idea if £1800 is a reasonable ball park figure, but I guess I'll find out very soon... Have a look on Ebay, that a...
