Re: Cargo Barrier


Not sure if it's already been sorted or not, but yes, there are additional mounting points towards the front of the car (over the rear passenger doors) that would be used to allow the rear seats to be folded right down and have the cargo barrier section off the front. I'll have a go at taking a photo this evening.

Re: Cargo Barrier


Good onya Naff, photos would be great if you could organise some.
And if Brett was to build a cubby house in the Exy, the missus would find stuff to fill it.

Re: Cargo Barrier


Thanks for the info guys. Well I've done a bit of research so I thought I'd share what I've found. I have a sunroof.

I was originally after an ausguard barrier, mainly because I have heard that it fits closer to the rear seats. I'm still not sure if this is a result of the barrier, the fitting instructions or the installers.

I got quoted $560 from a roof rack company in Brisbane (who have been slack enough with my enquiries as to stop me from getting one through them) and $433 from Caddy Storage systems in Brisbane. That's a huge price difference! Both were supplied and installed. Unfortunately, due to some issues with the supplier (it appears that are imported from Italy, so they should be called Wogguards emoticon) and I couldn't get one before I head up to Fraser where I'll really need it.

Prices I've been quoted for the Milford barrier are $456/$610 supply/supply&fit from nissan, and $567 fitted with another local company.

Given that I'm running out of time, I'm going to have to go the milford option. I'm a bit nervous about the space behind the seat, but I'll talk to the installer and see what they can do.

Once it's done I'll report with pics and my verdict.

Re: Cargo Barrier


Kev,

I did see that post. The installation of that cargo barrier looks different to other installations as the mount point looks to be near the tailgate. Is that the case?

Given what the milford website says, they have a "Milbolt" which looks to be secured near the roof and can be easily undone. I'm not sure how you'd make the same mod to one of these.

Joel

Re: Cargo Barrier


OK, it's all done. I got the Milford installed on Friday. As it turns out the mounting points are near the tailgate. Not ideal, but that's life with a sunroof.

The mounting points on the floor are also through the spare wheel cover, meaning that you have to undo the bolts on the floor (can be done with fingers) to get into the spare wheel cavity. A bit of a pain, but that's just the way it is. I might look at doing a mod to replace the wheel cover with a hinged piece of wood. I think I recall seeing someone else do that on here.

There is a gap of about 5cms between the barrier and the seats when not reclined. Kev has a good mod to reduce this (where did you get this done, Kev?). For now, this actually suits as we have the child carrier reclined.

Here are some pics:

Thanks Joel emoticon I made it myself.
Got some metal bar from the hardware about the same width and thickness as the existing braces with bolts and nyloc nuts the same size as the existing connections.
Then just cut, drilled and mounted them.
I'll take a closer pic of the mounting for you tomorrow and post it here.
