Nissan Terrano Ii

Hi guys need advice on how to remove the drivers side o/s mirror glass and backing plate. My mirror has been hit but only the mirror itself was broken. I've had a search around the usual auction sites, and there are mirrors + backing for ££, but having a quick poke and pull at mine it doesn't seem to want to come away from the main housing. Any help would be appreciated, The victim is a Nissan Mistral 2.7TD 1995 R20 7 seater Thanks in advance

Answers

Hi, you access it from inside the door panel. Remove the arm rest (screw under lug in the recessed bit on top), door handle (surround slides forward) and window switches (they have a clip at one end). The internal panel has gromets round the bottom, carefully prize these off with a screwdriver or similar tool (careful they break easily). Slide the panel up out of the window recess at the top. There should be a plastic dust seal inside the panel secured around its edge with permanently wet sealer. Carefully peel this aside so that it can be put back later. Now looking up into the door you can see how the mirror is attached. Unplug the wires and remove to replace or diss-assemble. Assembly is the reverse of this proceedure.

do not dismantle anything ,buy a stick on mirror, take of any loose glass, align the new mirror with the old one and press it on, job done, Terry, lancashire uk. terry from Lancashire

Nissan Pathfinder

Hello, I have been having this problem for about 2 months now. I have a 2003 nissan Pathfinder Chillkoot, when I turn on the engine all of a sudden I hear this loud squealing noise that increasingly gets louder. It will usually squeal for 2-3 minutes and sometimes stop, sometimes not. When I press the gas it squeals even louder however if I hit the gas while in park (or drive) to about 3-4000 RPM's it will stop suddenly with one final squeak. When I drive the sound restarts if I turn the heating fan up to the max, it also starts up again when i try to open or close the windows. It also restarts when I turn my steering wheel all the way to the left or the right. The colder it is outside , the longer it seems to squeals and it will keep squealing. Sometimes it will start squealing out of nowhere when I stop at a traffic light. I brought it to a mechanic at the end of last winter he changed one of the pulleys and said it was rusted. The noise stopped temporarily however restarted again about 2 weeks after. I imagine it is either the fan clutch or one of the belts (ive been reading many articles online) however I have no way of knowing and I do not want to spend an endless amount of money to get this problem fixed. Any ideas on what is making the noise?

Nissan Primera

I have a Nissan Primera 2001 model, 1.99cc. The problem is that when I start the engine it only runs for almost 30 seconds then it stops on its own, I cannot even move with it, there is nothing on the dash board which shows there is a problem. I consulted an auto mechanic who checked it, he checked the fuel pump and filter they were just okay, the fuel system seem okay. He checked the fuses, they all seem okay. What could be the problem? I will appreciate your quick feedback. Thank you.

Answers

Hi Ted, there are two things you need to check: 1) The MASS AIRFLOW sensor which is in between air filter and the carburetor. If the mass airflow sensor is not working it chokes the carburetor. 2) Check the distributor cup and the rotor. If possible change themkofi from Kent

Hi,I have just bought a Nissan C + C and I am having problems with water coming in from the roof . The garage I bought it from have been fantastic, and have replaced both seals on the driver and passenger side of the car free, they have tried very hard but it still leaks. One answer on your site was to add silicone round the window seal, just wondered where exactly ...whether this is inside or outside of the car? Any other suggestions please, love the car, but it is a bit disappointing that it has this problem which seems to be a design fault. Many thanks.

Nissan Almera

Hi I have Almera Flare 1.5 2004 the seat belt light keep flashing even my seat belt (driver side) is on or off. I tried cleaning the the latch but still the light is flashing . what could have been the problem?

Answers

Reset the code - common fault in the airbag/seatbelt light. It will fail the MOT so fix the error. The simplest way I found was by turning the ignition on (but not starting the engine) so the warning lights light up. As soon as they go out..(approx 5-7 secs) switch the ignition off, wait approx 3 secs then switch to your lights again, then off, 3 secs etc....Do this 3 times and when you finally start the engine this has hopefully reset and cleared the fault. eddy from Falkirk

This happens when the hot idle air valve sticks due to an oily tar like build up, you need to take it off the throttle body and clean it. It is a common fault, google it. . You can download the almera factory manual from the internet if you search. ian from Lancashire

Nissan Almera Tino 2002

The heater on my Nissan Almera Tino 2002 is blowing hot air all the time, even when the switch is on it`s cold setting and even if the air con is active. Is this a fuse issue? Please can anyone give any solution? Regards.

Answers

Hi. I have this on my wife’s Tino. The problem is that the heat control is on a cable that can become kinked when you move it too quickly from hot to cold and back. When this happens, the cable sleeve moves backwards and forwards, but the cable itself doesn’t move, so the control in the dashboard stays on hot. We had a garage secure the cable sleeve with cable ties, which held it still so the actual cable could move. That works for a while, but eventually you may need a replacement part. Rhey are on ebay but make sure you get one with A/C if you need it. Hope that helps Tony Simper from Berkshire

The cable retainer bracket has broken so the temperature control knob does not pull the cable. There is a kit available from Nissan for only a few pounds or you could replace the complete heater control unit for about £160 DC from Yorkshire

I just looked at this problem on my mother-in-law's Almera. Cable ties didn't look viable due to access, so I used a bit of Sugru moulded around the end of the cable sleeve and the fixed section to keep the sleeve in place. Sugru looks like plasticine, but cures to a solid, rubber-like material that bonds to all sorts of surfaces. It's now widely available in retailers (e.g. B&Q, Wilko), or direct at http://sugru.com/. MarkH from Surrey

I had the same problem. Realised the kink was in a place that meant it would work so long as I didn't turn up the heater more than two thirds the way. In my case the bracket and retainer were intact, it was simply that the cable was kinked. So have fed back the cable, covered it with Vaseline, tried as best as possible to bend the kink out of the cable, and then fixed a screw through the plastic surround around the heater controls to stop me turning it above two thirds of the way up. A bit of a bodge, but did it in half an hour and it works again. At least for now........ Pete from Canada

Have just read this thread and found it to be a lifesaver. Thanks to everyone who contributed. I have a Nissan Almera 2002, heater was on full, no cold at all. Went onto YouTube and saw how to take the dash apart by searching 'removing CD player in Nissan Almera'. After a tricky hour, figured out the cable retaining clip broke out of it's casing on the control unit, so I fashioned a little 'L' shaped thing out of a bit of aluminium and screwed it to the casing so the cable retaining clip could be popped back in. Took over 3 hrs to sort out that little retaining clip but Ahhh, cold air again! Hope this helps the next victim of the "Almera heater control cable retaining clip". Hayden from Wiltshire

I had the same problem with a newly acquired 2001 Almera Tino. The bracket was broken and I found the inner Bowden cable to kink when the heating knob was rotated. The fix was quite easy, using a strong cable tie, a pair of pliers and soldering iron and solder I made a decent repair. Firstly with the pliers I reformed the metal clip so that the part that was retained by the broken portion was bent through 90 degrees (making it L shaped), this newly bent portion was pushed into the hole on the left hand side where the clip was originally retained (the broken part). The Bowden cable put back in original place and secured with a good strong cable tie. This will hold the sleeve of the cable in it's original place. The kinked inner has to be straightened out as best as can be done in situ. Once straight place a large soldering iron against the inner and run some solder into the fibres of the inner cable for about an inch or two. This will stiffen the inner sufficiently to stop the cable becoming kinked again. ** IMPORTANT **A heat shunt (using a pair of long nose pliers held closed with an elastic band on the handle) is positioned on the inner before the plastic actuating arm of the Bowden cable. This will stop the plastic component from melting. This has worked well for me, but it has to be said that it is best not to be too forceful or too fast using this control, as the cable my kink again. Ken Ginn from Kent

Nissan Primera

Periodically the engine on my Nissan Primera won't start. It turns over and sounds incredibly close to catching but doesn't quite. Occasionally when this has happened it has started but only for a few seconds where it is got up to 500rpm then died again. This problem usually manifests itself when the car is parked on a slope (facing either up or down) or if the fuel level drops to around half a tank or below. It 'heals' itself so whenever I have had anyone out to look at it, or if I go back to it a few hours later, it starts perfectly first time. Which means no-one can diagnose the issue. At my wit's end so any helpful hints or ideas would be useful.

My Navara 2.5d 04plate 2005 suddenly decided to idle around 1800 rpm and won't return to normal, all heat switches are off. Can you help?

Answers

Solved, flicked heat switch on while engine running then off, put clutch down and held for 30 seconds, released clutch and left to idle for 5 mins, it corrected itself. PS you can literally hear your money getting spent while revs were high, but hey, 5 mins. :-) ;-) paul from Peterborough

Nissan Qashqai

What do you get in the boot of a Qashqai instead of a spare wheel?

Answers

Inflation kit, which plugs in to 12v power socket plus some tyre sealant. Not had the misfortune to have to use it, but I understand that it is good enough to get you to a tyre fitter. However, I'm told that it makes a real mess of the tyre, negating any possible repair, and also that the rim requires a good clean because it is coated in a thick layer of sealant! Think I'd rather have a space-saver tyre. ArtyPea from West Sussex

Had this problem on 2 previous Notes. Found cause to be a slight crack in clutch pedal assembly which allows the bracket to flex every time pedal is pressed. If still under warranty get dealer to look at this for you! Good luck! Paul Paul from West Midlands

I am interested to know more about your problem. Is it the new model? I have an intermittently failing remote key and Nissan are suggesting it is an isolated problem. It would be good to know if anyone else has had this problem. Jonathan Smith from Cheshire

I am also having trouble with my central locking, although it locks the motor sounds as though it might be failing. It`s the 09 model, it makes an almighty clunking noise on the driver`s front door.

With my van it was the wiring rubbing off the gearbox, what I did was wired some spade connectors in, meaning if it blew I only needed maxi blade fuses. But I put a piece of plastic pipe over it and it rarely blows compared to 2-3 times a day, hope this helps Ryan from Durham

Answer this question

Heinrich Barkhuizen, South Africa

Nissan X-Trail

Hi, I`ve got a 2005 model 2.5lt petrol, had it for 3 years now with 144,000km on, not doing a lot of mileage with it, only did 11,500km in the last 3 years. Problem is it looks like it`s using oil. I did a 400km trip last week and oil dropped from full to about 2/3 on the dipstick. It doesn`t smoke when starting cold or from what I can see pulling away from stop street. Any advice on what to check for oil usage, must I have a compression test done? There are no oil leaks on the motor, what else can cause this? Thank you very much.

Answers

Heinrich, a byproduct of burning petrol in an internal combustion engine is water vapour. This water vapour also enters the crankcase. This water vapour condenses and runs to the bottom of the oil pan. It subtly raises the level of the oil. Keep running short trips and the water vapour keeps filling the sump. Now go for a long trip. The water now evaporates out of the oil. Therefore there is less oil showing on the dipstick. All engines use oil. Google it and see..even Rolls Royce.... If you immediately then went on another 400km journey without having topped up the oil, there would be hardly any change in the oil level at the 800km mark.. Go back to short journeys and the sump will "refill" slightly with water.......holding the level..until the next long journey. I would be surprised if you had to put more than 500ml into the sump to refill it???? what are your normal oil change periods/ If you are doing fewer miles, maybe use the severe service change periods so that you remove the water by changing the oil more frequently.... John Smith from New Zealand

Hi John, thanks for your answer, makes sence. Service intervals is every 15000km, I bought the car from dealer and they had the 135000km service done before I got it. Will do oil change and check, hopefully this is the answer to my worry.. Appreciate. Heinrich Barkhuizen from South Africa

stick finger up exhaust pipe.if it comes out black like soot its using oil. the cataleptic converter burns the oil and sends it out the tail pipe, you will never see smoke or any oil drips, you will just see your oil levels going down more so on long trips jan from Australia
