    Thanks for that, been looking at second hand injectors, think it was just the one that came up with a code. Can't ask son just now as he's away out in the car. 🙄

    Things I Don't Like

    I don't like the day after our son passing his test his car goes into limp mode full-time! It's a 2008 1.4 diesel Fiesta he bought from his sister and it would occasionally do it but a quick Italian tuneup would sort it. This time, however, it seems a bit more serious. He's had it at a pals house, Ford mechanic with software, and it seems one of the injectors is kaput. Obviously we're not going to buy a new one for £300+ so I think secondhand will be in order. Hopefully my mechanic mate who does homers will be able to sort it as it looks too involved for an amateur on a driveway! To say we have an EXTREMELY p***ed off son is an understatement. I feel some sorry for him as I know how I would feel if it was me.

    I think he only had about 12 or 13 lessons plus driving about with me and his mum. Insurance is 'only' £900 for his 1.4 diesel Fiesta. Thing that annoyed me was that due to his age he couldn't get a credit agreement therefore had to pay for a years insurance in a oner!

    Not sure if this should go in the like or unlike thread but our 17 year old son passed his driving test today! 6 minors for those interested. After 3 hours sorting out his insurance watching him drive away in his own car(Fiesta) filled me with a sense of pride 😎

    Our sons have bought Anker Bluetooth speakers and they seem well built and dependable. So tempting to stick a 'W' on the speaker grill though!!! 😈

    It might need to be formated in the dashcam? Check the instruction manual or go through the menu on the camera.

    Grab Rail by Handbrake or something like.

    I'm sure someone in a metal fab shop could knock something up.

    I realise this is the wrong side but it might give you ideas. https://www.amazon.co.uk/High-Street-TV-Official-Mobility/dp/B01N0SVAZW/ref=pd_aw_lpo_60_bs_img_2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=GM0NNFE6EMGFJW1S6HQX

    I knew they were the same engines etc but it never crossed my mind to try a Renault dealer! Not having one up here I Googled it and found one in Inverness......... the same one as the Nissan dealership! 😁 So, got one ordered, hopefully be here Thursday and *fingers crossed* it stops the problem we've been having.

    Email back from Inverness dealer... Filter. £41.99+vat P+P £5.00 Total £55.40 That's better 😁

    I've seen/heard that before right enough. It would be easier and cheaper to get one of those than one from Nissan, not easy to get a definite answer as to the manufacturer of the original parts.

    Things I Don't Like

    I don't like trying to get a genuine Nissan fuel filter for the Qashqai that doesn't cost an arm and a leg to get delivered! Because many companies exclusively use couriers for deliveries it can cost us a lot to get stuff delivered up here. Case in point.... Filter £35.90 P+P £26.78 VAT £12.54 TOTAL £75.22 I've emailed the company to see if they'll post it instead and I've email our 'local' Nissan dealership as well. Thing is our nearest one is 140 miles and an hours boat journey away.
