There is a thread here somewhere ( I think Christo - Chuck )posted it ) that explains in great detail what the problem is and how to sort it out.

I believe that a new 5th gear shaft can be bought from Nissan ( not sure of the cost) and then one replaces the whole thing.

This is the weak point on the Patrol gearbox, so towing heavy loads in 5th gear is NOT a good idea.

I will try find the post on this...

Ja-Nee Wilkie hy het gestrip, het in 5de gery so teen 125 en toe raas iets net ongelooflik en asof hy in neutral is met geen traksie.

Het daarna nog so 600k plus gery maar max net in 4de en nou as die kar net luier dan klink dit of al die ratte net rondharloop binne in die ratkas.

Dit hang af van kostes maar ek dink om n 2de handse ratkas te soek wat nog redelik nuut is, hopelik dalk van n 2008 opwaartse patrol wat afgeskryf is, dit mag dalk hoendertande wees wat ek soek en weet nog nie of hy net so sal pas nie.

There is a place in Boksburg called Rex Diff and Gearbox which is a big company and I am sure they will be able to help at a reasonable price whether it is to repair or replace.



Yes, it was REX Diff - they did a good job! and recomended by Nissan!

Hi Petrol

Ek kan vir jou die parte van Australia af invoer. Ek is die afgelope jaar al besig om die nodige regustrasies in orde te kry om parte van Terrain Tamer (www.terraintamer.com) in te voer. Hulle het n opgegradeerde as en rat wat hulle verkoop. Hulle het ook n ratkas service kit (Bearings en seels). Ek wag net vir die kwotasies van hulle kant af, dan sal ek n kwotasie vir jou PM. Jammer dar ek nou eers die boodskap stuur, ek was nie by my rekenaar nie.

Groete
