Re:


Don't forget to disconnect the airbags sensor fuse if you do decide to take the seats out and also be careful not to start the car with the airbag fuse taken-out, as the ECU will register a fault straight away and you would have to go through a lengthy re-set procedure to get rif of the blinking dash fault.

Re: Road noise/vibration sound deadener, etc


Which one is it Ian, the standard FatMat plasticised or the MegaMat butyl ?
Does it have the typical asphalt smell to it on the roll ?

Re:


Kev, it's the megamat with genuine butyl, and as it's not bitumen-based there is no smell.

Jalal, I probably wouldn't have remembered that emoticon thanks for the heads up!

Re:


I went through this process with my last car. Its a massive job.

In the end I was a little disappointed with the result and on further investigation will look into Mass Loaded Vinyl for my x-trail. I'm curious to find out how yours sounds now?

I found the dynamat (similar to fat mat) stops panels from vibrating with a decent audio system but still transfer through most road noise, I used 2 full bulk packs covering the entire floor as you have.

My suggestion when it comes to your doors, use a hard material like polycarbonate or sheet metal to fill in the blank voids, inside the doors dampen with the fat mat and then cover the outer skin and polycarbonate with more fat mat. Doors transfer a lot more road noise than people realise but this will also make huge improvements to front speaker performance with a more sealed enclosure.

The x-trail seems particularly noisy around the rear wheel arches, wet roads give that away. Also the underside body has very little in way of body schutz or rubber spray equivalent. I reckon a couple coats of body schutz will help also and with MLV this is going to be my project before the audio install. Good luck with the rest. Let me know how it goes and what you did with your doors
