Xtrail Jack. Hi All,
I have a 2002 Xtrail ST.
I havnt seen much comment on the Jack that is supplied with the car, I find its scary even jacking the car up with it in my workshop, I think it would be impossable on the side of the road etc, has there been any word from Nissan on the subject...

Re: Xtrail Jack. Well the factory scissor jack started getting difficult to wind up recently so I went out and got a hydraulic bottle jack to replace it.
The main thing with these is they like to be stored standing up so I had to find a place for it somewhere in the boot...
Cut away some of the plastic trim (which can't be seen with the floor inplace) and it fits perfectly wedged next to the spare.
Second thing was to have an adapter for the top to use the same jacking points...
So I cut off the top of the old scissor jack and welded it to a square tube piece (could have been round pipe if I had it).
Works great and a lot stronger and easier to use than the old scissor jack.
