Re: New Xterra Pro-4x Owner Has Issues

At 140k kms you are likely in need of balljoints, especially when you don't know how the previous owners used the vehicle. It is unfortunate but a lot of maintenance items are coming do and I doubt the previous owner did anything. For tie rods only go with Hitachi. You can check for play by jacking ...

2015 Passenger Seat Belt Seized?

Went to take a buddy out for a spin, the passenger seat belt started pulling out fine and then stopped short of being usable. I tried yanking it, it won't budge. The seat belt won't even reach to latch with the seat vacant. Is there a good fix for this or do I need a new spring mechanism for the sea...

Re: X-Trail needs a blower assembly

The X-Trail seems to be a mis-mash of a bunch of parts. I wouldn't be surprised if the blower motor came from another model. RockAuto has the motor itself listed for $35CAD. Cross-referencing the numbers say Maxima, but also 2005-2018 Nissan Frontier, 2005-2015 Nissan Xterra and 2005-2012 Nissan Pa...

Re: Add a leaf source

For $190 USD you can get an adjustable shackle and that is easy to install but the shipping sucks if you don't have the means to cross the border to pick it up. When your leaf pack sags (and it will) you can transfer the shackle to your new setup and/or rebuild your leaf pack at any local shop that ...

X-Trail needs a blower assembly

I've got an 06' X-trail as my winter daily with something like 156 780km on the dash. The thing is mint, but the blower motor is garbage. I first changed it in 2017 when I first got it. I only bought the blower motor and I had to remove the old one from the blower assembly which was already damaged ...

Re: Rattle at 3k-4k RPM

The intake runner issue is apparently a separate issue. As Adam mentioned his large rant made it confusing to understand. The clarification is a couple posts down in that thread. Anyway, upon further testing personally and digging for older posts, I noticed the rattle goes away instantly when you to...

Re: Rattle at 3k-4k RPM

So while I will still try to diagnose the rattle by checking the heat shields, it appears another 2015 MT Xterra owner has already experienced an identical noise. It was a bad intake manifold runner valve or something. The Nissan dealer replaced the entire lower plenum. His video can be found here i...

If it is a heat shield, I wonder if I could get someone to knock the exhaust while I sit inside the cab and be able to replicate it? I really hope that's all it is.

Rattle at 3k-4k RPM

I've been having this issue since the first year I had my Xterra. It's kind of bothering me more and more. Any one have this experience? I'm thinking a heat shield or something. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eb2GvfrBL4Q

Re: Should I undercoat?

Lol seriously? You had to take the magic box installed by the dealer or the factory corrosion warranty doesn't apply?

Re: Should I undercoat?

The service manager recommended Krown to me lol! I was forced to have the "magic box" to keep my rust warranty, even though that tech has been totally debunked on cars and trucks (apparently works on boats though). I had a door replaced under the rust warranty so not complaining. DO NOT wa...
