Had my dash replaced 18 months ago under guarantee. New dash just started with bubbles. What now???? Nissan say it is out of guarantee. Myne is a 2006 GL 4.8 with 80 000km.

Did you query this with Nissan Head Office : InfoDesk@nissan.co.za
What year did the bubbles start? I'm looking at a 2005... = 7 years.

:thumbdown:
It would appear that Nissan SA has stopped honering the dashboard bubble replacement as I have tried a number of dealerships and Nissan SA themselves to no avail. Sad really as these are the best vehicles they have on the market.

Do yourself a favour - haul out a grand or so an get it done yourself at Leathertek in Pta North - saves a lot of stress and complications.
See one of my previous posts on the results... have'nt looked back. :wink:

I think Nissan Dealerships have stopped fixing this now, but as a last attempt I would try Mark White Nissan. They did the recall on my air bag last year & when chatting to John he told me then that they would still try help guys who had the dash issue.

Worth a shot before spending your own cash...

Hallo Thys

Just for your information.

My dashboard was replaced about mid 2016 (on a 2005 Patrol) by Nissan Menlyn / PTA.
No questions asked.
