Have you put new wipers on? Don't want your shiny new screen with wipers that have dirt in them!

Great to see a Laguna II getting some love.  Amazing how quickly they've disappeared, becoming a fairly uncommon sight.

Not any old dci, it was a 2.2 dci. Yes it did end up having injector leakage and gasket seepage.

All sounds very familiar.  My 2.2 Vel Shatis is pissing out coolant, diesel and oil.  Not to mention choking the occupants with it's injector incontinence.  Oh and it needs an alternator now.  Room in that murdering boat?

Yep, the 2.2 may have been a nice easy fix. Or it would have been an utter twat and I'd have been finding more borkage the deeper I went! So it helped others live on, many many parts live on in the current gooner and its long since fragged!

Still got to troubleshoot the horn. Mr r9uke, your a chap who knows a wing or 2 about these matters, clock spring or horn units for a horn that used to but now doesn't?

I did the same tbh! "oh crap, must check the coolant..."
1 full watering can later, full.

6 weeks later, when the heaters went cold

Mines been (touch wood) the most reliable car I've ever had! Not a single ftp in a year, ald all I've done is give it one oil change, maybe 3 small jobs on it and just added fuel and screenwash...

That's why this thread is so boring

There's someone out there somewhere with a hateful memory of a p12 primera, deep on a forum somewhere, with everyone telling him he was just stupid and broke stuff, he knows the truth and cries himself to sleep when thinking about it. Buy a Nissan they said, their reliable they said

Had another go at this today. Bridging the connections behind the indicator stalk resulted in silence, so...

 

IMG_20180916_152722.jpg

 

Trying to unbolt the wing and bumper corner bracket on the passenger side resulted in some crunching sounds and raining rust.

 

IMG_20180916_152726.jpg

 

Luckily, I'm stronger than the plastic of the wing and bumper, so before long, I was looking at this

 

IMG_20180916_152728.jpg

 

Green with corrosion

 

IMG_20180916_152733.jpg

 

Some scraping with a tiny jewellers screwdriver later and it was vaguely metallic again. I also flicked the rubber seal out and cleaned that up and replaced it. I then had a look at the now missing mounting bracket

 

IMG_20180916_152743.jpg

 

Look over, I turned my attention to the part of the foglight bulb I tore off trying to remove the bumper... buggar

 

IMG_20180916_152748.jpg

 

Buggar, new foglight bulb before the test then! I think I can change it without dropping the bumper again... Or, would it be legal to just disconnect the other foglight and have none? Pulled out the bits of air con radiator that were interfering with the coolant rad

 

 

IMG_20180916_153312.jpg

 

Admired the very oily engine

 

IMG_20180916_153317.jpg

 

And with one final toot of the horn to confirm it still tooted, re-attached the bumper and wheel arch with a mixture of the original fixings, metal garden wire and cable ties. Then went out and put #29 of diesel in as the chip has broken in my card again, but the contactless still works.

 

Successful day!
