Aircon Fan broke - replacement extremely expensive

My inside fan packed up (magnets) and Nissan (at cost price) is quoting me R 7975 for a replacement - any ideas where I can find something at a better price ? According to the auto electrician these fans don't last when you try to fix them once the magnets come loose ? 2011 4.8 GRX IMG-20230816-WA00...

Which Garmin for Overlanding is the most cost effective

I had a Garmin Nuvi but it went missing (ie stolen) recently - I am looking for Garmin model that can be used on my overlanding trips. The Garmin Overlander looks very nice but is pricey and I don't need features like the messaging system etc as I already have a Satt phone. I use (paper)maps as my p...

Re: Patrols for Sale - Various sites

I was also interested but it seems its been on the market for quite some time, and they couldn't provide me with it's service history. Also saw many complaints towards the dealership.

Re: 222K Overlanding Parts Kit

Sorry for the late reply Hannes, but it's a bit hectic from when I came back from the trip. Frans has a 68/72 point checklist when he inspects your Patrol. What was done in the end was: A full service - Oil change, Oil-, Air- and Fuel filter changed etc Long life Sparkplugs All fanbelts replaced Dif...

Re: 222K Overlanding Parts Kit

I took the Patrol to Frans (Tour de Frans) for a thorough checkup and fitment/refurbish of all necessary (although some not faulty yet) parts. I took it for a 4700km test drive :wink: and all went smooth and I am hugely impressed with Frans's professionalism and willingness to help with whatever is ...

Re: Tekkies for your Patrols

Thanks for your help with getting the Maxxis Razr MT's Tinus. Although still early days I am so far hugely impressed by it's perfomance, on and offroad. Just did a 4700km trip with about 3200 dirt/offroad. Tyres are way more silent on tar as oppose to the BF and Cooper MT's. Drove for 10 days on bet...
