    vitz or Wagon R turbo

    So do u think that using a stingray T will be same as using any other turbo petrol car (like the 1000ccs coming out these days)? Or will the engine have more issues in the long run.

    Diy-Bmw E46 Cluster Replacement & Coding

    great piece of work sir. very impressive indeed. just one observation, the last pic in the quoted; i see that the RPM needle is not alighted even with power coming to the cluster. this could be due to misalignment during installation. i faced the same situation while doing some work on a Nissan sunny cluster. nothing i did worked as after installation and powering up there were tiny miss alignments. so the best method which i found was before fitting the PCB into the cluster cover, and before installing the needles powerup the board (ACC). the needle servo shafts of RPM, Odeo, and temp (if the engine is cold) are now aliened to the lowest marks on the display. now you can insert the needles as accurately as possible and this will give much more accurate initialization of the gauge needles. Just my experience... Cheers...

    Nissan leaf

    do a search here on AL, and on google as well with reference to Sri Lanka. you'll find many companies who import these, out of it there will be few which can be considered as reputable. hope you'll find a good deal.

    Audi A1 or the Honda civic 2018 hatch

    2019 is out and it looks awesome. got a quote for 6.3 mil. it think its a bit high for a small hatch back... well its a bit longer than the old A1 i think..

    MapFactor Navigator for Android. a good alternative to Google. but no traffic updates, and dont need internet due to that and SL map is free to DL. there are other SL maps that you can purchase as well.

    Nissan FB 15 door lock meachnism

    the unit is something similar to this, i was talking about the big gear wheel, which the motor is connected to. im the FB15 theres a spring underneath the big gear wheel, which restricts its rotation range..

    Nissan FB 15 door lock meachnism

    sorry i didnt take any, its the big nylon gear wheel which the helical gear of the electrical motor is attached to. that wheel is connected to the actuator arm which pivot to lock and unlock the door. this wheel is under spring tension. what i accidentally did was release this wheel from that tension. let me see if google search will have a pic of it.

    Nissan FB 15 door lock meachnism

  13. from the first look this might look like a electrical problem but its NOT so my father inlaw has a FB 15 which the rear passenger door locks are somewhat sketchy. they locks fine when the lock key is pressed on the sec system, but the locks only partially opens when unlocked. so even though the front are unlocked the rear doors are partially unlocked. so last week i dismantled the doors and suspected that there might be obstructions to moving parts so cleaned the mechanical parts, lubricated them but same result. then i disassembled the sealed lock motor mechanism as well cleaned, greased and fitted with no change. Disassembled it again just to see if anything is stuck. the spring that hold the big gear wheel in the center position got loose when i closed the two covers of the assy, just being curious i left it like that and fixed everything back. so now the main gearwheel which is connected to the motor is free to rotate when motor is powered without the tension of the spring.. surprisingly the auto lock was working fine afterwards. My question is for anyone that is familiar with the mechanism. now with the motor mechanism and the gearwheels inside of the sealed unit is free from the spring tension, will it create any other problems due to the removal of the spring tension? the spring is there for a reason neh?? PS-i did the same thing to the other side door and it works fine as well....

    Suzuki Wagon-R 2015 Hybrid Battery failure

    is there a possibility that you could share those points in here. i think there's a good wagon r review in youtube which explains how the system works but none explains the "what to look for and what to stay away from" part. thanks
