What did you do to your Xtrail recently


Hi all,

This thread has been created for those who want to update us on their projects without starting a brand new thread every time they do something to their Xtrail.
Basically, just post what you did (if anything) to your Xtrail today, it can be as minor as a wash or oil change to something as big as a motor rebuild! Pics are great too!

Re: What did you do to your Xtrail recently


OK I'll start this off.

On the weekend I fitted power folding mirrors to my T30 Series 1.
They were standard on the early model Xtrails overseas in the UK but Nissan decided to cut this functionality from the Australian models (like many other features).

As we have all the wiring in our looms for many of the missing features just like the rear foglamp, it is a matter of plug&play if you can get them from overseas.

But I went the more difficult route as with shipping costs being so high from the UK, I found a helpful Xtrail UK Forum member who is also a "breaker" (or wrecker as we refer to them) and they sent over just the power folding motors for me to retrofit into my mirrors and the dash control switch, saving me shipping costs by both weight and package size.

Re:


The battery clamp was getting a little corrosion on it so I took it off, wire brushed it and spray painted it with some Rustoleum gunmetal primer & paint all-in-one.

Put the Xtrail in to have the timing chain and intake cam phaser replaced and check the compression.
