I checked mine a few months ago and it said I was in the clear. Checked again today and now it tells me that the patrol is one of the affected models :think: 2005 4.8 GRX I will call the nissan dealer in polokwane and see what they say..
Hi Craig

Let me know the outcome - same model as mine and the website said it's affected, but the dealer says it ain't.

Hi Rhett

Just got off the phone with the dealer in Polokwane and they say that my vehicle is affected and that they will order the parts and replace under warranty. So I'm going to try go and get it done before the end of next week. Its likely then that yours is also one of the affected ones.
When in doubt throttle out !

Rather contact NissanSA. That way they assign you a dealership closest to you and tell them to do it.

Thanks guys, will be calling them now and will post their response

Edit: just spoke to a lovely lady @ Nissan SA and passenger side airbag must be changed, Thanks for the suggestion Paul, seems my local Nissan dealer doesn't know what they're doing. Booked in 10 June and will update again.

Airbag has been replaced. No paperwork or anything to prove so however, so going on trust on this one. Forgot to ask to see the old airbag, had a few other things to discuss with them.
