Re: Open door warning light?

1.jpg 2.jpg I put 2 to 3 layers of insulation tape on the 3 door latch hooks of the rear doors. It takes a bit of effort to open the door but the open door warning light doesn't come on while driving. The doors also doesn't squeak anymore. At one stage the top latch didn't close properly and you ha...

Re: Vehicle recalls (including Patrols)

Good morning I received my recall letter in June this year. Last month I took it to Nissan in Centurion. They didn't look at the vehicle and only used the vin number. They said they will order the part and when it arrives they will make an appointment to replace it. The passenger airbag was replaced...

Re: No reverse gear A/T

I once had a problem that my 4.8 wouldn't go forwards (I didn't test reverse when it happened). The engine would rev but no drive. In the engine bay on the passenger side there is a small box with relays in it. One of these is for the reverse light and another one is for the gearbox. I opened these ...

Re: 4.8 fuel consumption

Hi Errol Ek het die oorspronklike downpipe tot onder die kar, waar die 2 pype vanaf die manifolds bymekaar kom en een word. Met die 3 bokse is dit 'n stil freeflow sisteem binne die kar maar dit klink nog steeds goed buite die kar. Ek het vantevore 'n 75mm freeflow opgehad maar dit het te veel binne...

Re: Burst Water Pipe - Near Miss

Hi Ian
Yes, that was me. I was also a bit late seeing you because I was constantly looking at the water temp gauge.
It was not a rooftop tent but Tentco bags on the roofrack.

Re: Richtersveld December 2018

24 December We did sightseeing in the park and cooled off in the river, braai, drink, etc. 25 December We decided to go and see what Ai-Ais look like. After clearing customs and crossing the river we were once again wondering how can Namibia keep their dirt roads in such good condition. On the way t...

Re: Richtersveld December 2018

26 December We left Potjiespram and took the road through De Hoop towards Richtersberg. At first we didn’t have a nice camping spot (no shade at all) but when our neighbours decided to move on, we moved to their spot where we had shade in the afternoons. We chilled the rest of the day and did the no...
