    Bullbar inquiry?

    As far as I know the only issue is SRS airbag incompability so if the utes don't have those then you might want to research it further. otherwise it fits. Regards
  3. G'day, I know it sounds obvious but that means you still have air in the system. Pressure bleeding the system doesn't always work OK. As an exercise try loosening each bleed nipple slightly and watch for air bubbles. Sometimes the good all fashioned manual bleeding is needed too, in correct order of course (starting from nearest cylinder to master). If your vehicle has load sensing valve make sure it is set to max opening as well before attempting to bleed the system. I use vacuum method (own vacuum tester/gun) and finish of with manual bleeding with helper person pumping the pedal. Never had issues this way. Regards

    Evidence of airbag change?

    Thanks for your informative response Rumcajs, while I dont plan to have have the airbag go off anyway, I will ask Nissan Australia just to be sure. Not worried about blowing a hole in me but I wouldnt want my missus to cop a faceful of shrapnel, no matter how small the chance of it occuring is.

    Evidence of airbag change?

    G'day Unless, they've given you a paperwork or afixed recall sticker then you can't tell unless you pull the SRS airbag detonator out and inspect its serial/part numbers or actually witnessed it being fitted ( I did ).There should be an invoice generated for Nissan Australia by the dealer indeed Nissan will only supply enough for the vehicles listed as coming under the dealers system. So you could contact Nissan Australia directly to obtain the information about your vehicle as they must keep that transaction for ACC. In any case this airbag re-call is a fraud. Takata Inc needs to supply around 40 to 80 million additional unit for vehicles around the world which some of them are not even being produced anymore on top of actually supplying/fullfilling existing contracts to produce them for current productions of vehicles. To understand what is going on, the Japanese invented manufacturing system like JIT (Just in Time) which means they mostly don't produce anything extra for the stores to keep. This means that lead times for extra units are very long..... That can't be done in ones lifetime. Most dealers will replace the units "like for like" as they have nothing else supplied to them. Probably only difference will be with the so called Alpha series airbags where/if the updates can be made or they can be superceded by later units. If your Nissan is 2000-2003 model then do ensure they updated the SRS airbag detonator/entire unit to later version. If they ask me to come again I'll cut the wires to that shyte myself. Regards

    What people useing for fluids?

    Thanks Rumcajs for the info.
  16. I am not the most mechanically minded man on the planet so forgive my ignorance. I have taken my GU to the (respected) dealers who sold it me second hand in Brisbane and asked for airbag replacement as required by recall note, but haven't got any way of telling if it was changed. A verbal saying it was done, but no paperwork, no sticker, no information if it was a like for like or an upgrade. Is this typical? How can I check this? Thanks in advance, all genuine suggestions appreciated, critical comments are expected, humour to be hoped for.

    What people useing for fluids?

    G'day, Chances are you gonna get various suggestions etc. Engine ==> semi synth or mineral oil is the best. I used Caltex Delo 400 15W-40, now I switched to extremely expensive (still trialing for now )ULX Diesel 15W-40. Gearbox ==> mine is manual so it doesn't really apply Castrol Syntrans 75W-85 (I will trial ULX 85W-90) First diff ===> ULX 85W-90 Rear diff (LSD) ===> ULX 85W-140 Transfer ===> Syntrans 75W-85 (if you are in cold area recommended oil is Dextron III auto tranny oil) Regards
  18. Hi im new to Patrol l have a 07 GU auto 3lt and what to change all the fluids. What is recommend to use? Cheers guys

    Fixd topic

    G'day, Apart from the fact that people flogging that app use terrible graphics and their site sucks, it is only good for vehicles with OBD2 capabilities which with an exception of common rail version of ZD30 (post 2007) none of the Patrols are capable. I still don't get what is so special about that app apart from massively invasive anti privacy features, tracking, push notifications and other crap. It just another marketing hype where it will suck unsuspecting customers in to who knows what repair schemes. You can easily get $10 OBD2 ELM327 adapter and $5 + Torque app doing the same and still have your privacy! Especially with this little blurb gem: "Never worry about the condition of your family’s cars and protect them no matter where they are. Install a FIXD sensor in each family member’s vehicle so you can remotely monitor the health and status of their vehicle and be there for them in their time of need." https://www.fixdapp.com/features What a shonky!

    Fixd topic

    Hello everyone I'm new to this forum, my name is Dennis, and I saw an app on Facebook today it's called Fixd, it's supposed to be a little box that plugs into or underthe dash, has anyone used this device and does it work on Nissan patrol to diagnose little problems or fix engine lights and other little things

    Hi Folks

    Hi all. I'm not sure if I'll be DIYing much right now as I don't have the skills at the moment but very keen to learn more about the Patrol to keep it healthy and running as long as I can. Have a 2011 with about 135k km on it.

    2000 GU ZD30 Patrol

    G'day, Save your money for the TD42 conversion. There is no point trying to do anything to what I presume is high mileage ZD30 (200K +) stock/with no mods. Enjoy it while it drives and when it grenades, convert it to TD42 which you can mod up then. You need to understand that the engine you are/would be after is TD42Ti (factory turbo charged and intercooled). Standard TD42 is non intercooled and there are number of unscrupulous jerks out there even trying to sell non turbo charged TD42 from GQ series which isn't exactly a win..... Anyway, to mod TD42 to get more power out will cost $$$ as it is all mechanicals, there are no quick ECU/software fuelling changes like on ZD30. But if you insist on wasting money on ZD30, have a look in NADS step by step guide ,it contains everything you'll need to know. Regards

    2000 GU ZD30 Patrol

    Hey everyone, would just like some general mods and parts to do to my GU patrol. Am new to the 4x4 scene. Have read that they’re grenades and to look at tracking down a 4.2 engine to put in it. If so I will try and track one down but in the meantime what can I do to get by with the ZD30?
