Re: Airbag light reset prosedure

I just had a look at the one in the cupboard.

It does not have a visible ribbon cable, so it looks like one will have to repaid the one currently in the vehicle! :rolleyes:

Re: Airbag light reset prosedure

Hi Anthony and Paul, My big problem is to remove the steering wheel cover. It has been taken off 5 times now, and it takes more than an hour every time and the hole on the back part of the steering wheel (where you unclip the front part through) is looking much worse for wear now and I will not have...

Re: Airbag light reset prosedure

Michael, The error code says its the clock spring and it affects the airbag on the steering wheel. From what I have read is that it actually is the ribbon cable on the clock spring that goes faulty. The ribbon cable only can be bought on eBay for about US$5.00. But to be honest it is such a shit job...

Re: Airbag light reset prosedure

Hi Michael, Do you know if there is a way to turn the airbag warning light off permanently (as in when there is actually an airbag fault)? My vehicle's airbag light started flashing about 2 years ago. I had it tested and was told it was definitely the clockspring. I tried many places to find if I co...

Re: S2O in Diesel - A BIG NO, NO>>>>>

It mentions it is not to be used in CR, yes. It does however say that it has NO ADVANTAGES for ANY diesel engine, as all fuels in SA has to conform to a standard, which in turn ensures sufficient lubrication "All diesel fuel sold in South Africa has to meet the SANS 342:2014 lubricity specification ...

Re: Nissan service quality improving?

I cannot vouch for the service quality, but their pricing is totally mad, insane, ridiculous and over the top! A set of 4 (Four) (Ja, net vier) injectors for a 2010 Pathfinder is R35k. That is about 20 to 25% of the value of the vehicle. It seems that that injector is the same for all YD 25 motors, ...

Re: Looking for my first Patrol up to 100k

I think for that kind of money you will have to look at at something like the Safari 2.8 from the 80s or if you are lucky a GQ 4.2 from the 90s. You probably will not find a decent Y61 4.5 or a Y61 4.2D, but you WILL NOT find a going 4.8 for that money. A wreck, maybe. Sorry to be a bearer of bad ne...
