Re: Which Juke would you buy today?

Also buy my cars outright. These deals might sound good but in real terms how much do they really cost ? How many 'extras' do they encourage you to buy ? I purchased my car outright from a dealer and looking at the final invoice saw £ 99 had been added, when I asked what that was for the reply was 5...

Re: Auto door lock 1.5 dCi Acenta 5dr

I wonder what the logic of the EU directive was ?

Cleaning products

Not sure what everybody else uses to clean their pride and joy but being the lazy type I use a mixture of Autoglym shampoo and Anglewax, might not be the best products out there but looks impressive with all those bubbles when applied using a power washer. Always finish off with a microfibre cloth. ...

Re: Headlight has water inside

That's very odd ? How much water are we talking about ? To my knowledge the only way a lot of water could get in is if the engine was washed and the rubber around where the bulb goes in is either missing or not in place correctly. If the engine was not included in the valet then there is a problem i...

Charging Battery

Is it safe to use a modern battery charger without first disconnecting the cars power leads ? I know it's easy enough to disconnect the leads but during the winter and doing short journeys with heater and lights on may mean more charge is taken out of the battery than goes in so it can become a pain...

It's quite clear in the users manual what the viscosity of the engine oil should be but is there any advantage in using the lowest viscosity of engine oil you use ie: 0 - 15 in a attempt to get the maximum mpg or is this just a myth ? Assuming of course that the oil in question is of the same or hig...

Fog Lights (2)

On my Juke there is the option of having both front and rear fog lights on or just the front fog lights.
Where is the logic in that ? Under what circumstances would you only have the front fog lights on ? Yes it would be useful at night on smaller roads but it is illegal and you could be fined.

Re: Flickering LCD

Best to invest in a Heyes workshop manual, with dashboards and many other parts it's no always obvious where the screws or fastners are sited.
One alternative is a quick search on youtube, sometimes you can get lucky and find a video showing how something is done.

Re: Adrian Flux Insurance Services - up to 15% discount for Juke Forum members.'........................

The wording of the advert is very clever.....' Up to 15% for members' That must mean some members get a better discount than others ? How does that work ? Assume you get a quote and then say you are a member they could then give you 1% discount and that's in line with the bit..'Up to..' The best dea...

Re: New engine

Can you provide us with some more information ? Why does it need a new engine ? Has it seized up ? Black smoke coming out of the exhaust ? Unusual noises ? Sludge on the oil filler cap ? Clearly oil changes are very important, what type of mileage have you done since the last full service. To my kno...
