Patrol scrap yard in Sharjah, UAE.

Post by vanhack » 04 Mar 2015 12:01

I was feeling a little bored this morning, and not been able to get out offroading or camping due other brainless social crap. So a trip to Sharjah industrial areas always relaxes me. Sharjah is about 30-40 minutes from Dubai, and there are areas of sharjah industrial area which specialise in car/truck scap, which is used to re-export parts, or repair insurance write off vechicles from the US/canada. Luckily patrol's are not sold in US/Canada and a lot of auctioned off Japanese patrols end up in Sharjah for parts.

I read about the spot in Sharjah.

To be honest, I was planning a trip there when I'm stuck in the emirates for two weeks later this year... :)

hey Ian let me know when you are down here, and we can have a look together if I am free.

The switch unit is for electric seats on a y61? They may have it, if possible. Sadly they do not have a website, the guys who run these places are nearly all from Afganistan/Pakistan especially the Toyota/Nissan scrap yards. There is another couple of smaller places in Abu Dhabi that I know that allowed me to get a catalytic converter for almost 1/6th price of a new one from Nissan.

Yes a lot of 4.2 diesels here, seems the diesel engine was more popular in Japan.

That looks like Patrol heaven

The real shame is import duties on whole vehicles.

I gather those vehicles standing there are all left hand drive? - in which case it is almost impossible to import to SA.

Still not sure about the switches....can you post a picture of you what you mean, or a part number please. I can ask Nissan here as well for the price of a new one. I can call the scrapyard and ask if they have the item, and a picture will help them understand over whatsapp.
