Genuine Engine Cover - Fitment advice


Hi,

Does anyone have any instructions on how to install the X-Trail Engine cover?

I got a genuine one with all the nut and bolts and bracket but couldn't find anything in this section on how to install it?

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Ben.

Hi Ben,

Here is a photo of where to fit the bracket and bolts.

Image

The following photo shows the mounting position for the engine cover (in addition to the mounting point of the bracket above)

Notice that we don't have the top mounting point, so the engine cover will be held by 2 screws only which is fine.

Here is the engine cover mounted in my engine bay

Hope this helps.

Hey guys! Thanks for all your replies!!

I managed to figure it out before I saw your replies.

Only thing is that the bolts supplied had damaged threads and not sure they will hold up.

Any advice on where I might get some new ones? Already tried Bunnings, Super Cheap and Repco. No luck.

 Which bolts are you talking about. The actual engine ones are found at Bunnings and you could try Nissan for the side ones. I am pretty sure that Nissan sells the side bracket kit, but Jalal should be able to confirm this.

Not in Australia, but I do have the part numbers for this bracket and bolts. I think Ben is having probs with the engine cover screws which I thought were available at Bunnings as well, otherwise Nissan would have them. Most screws are standard.

Hi Jalal,

The ones which need replacing are the ones on the top on the left and right sides. The one on the back is still not too bad.

Icouldn't find any of these at Bunnings or Repco/Super Cheap!

Thanks for your help!

Regards,
Ben.

Ben,

You only need 2 screws to hold the cover in place. Left and right.

I have a spare screw which I didn't need for the middle screw position (not used) and I think Brett should have one spare as well. I can send you mine if you like and if I can find it.

Hi Jalal,

Wow - I could not find the two bolts which hold the engine cover on at the top at Bunnings. The third screw I attached to the rear of the engine cover and there was a hole for that on the aluminium thingy.

I might go to Nissan and see if there are similar bolts which they have... But if you can send any spare ones that would be appreciated.

Thanks again,

Ben.

Ben,

Are you saying that you have the top screw position in the throttle body as shown in this pic??

Image

This is strange indeed and may prove that Series I and II have different throttle bodies..WOW! Yet another difference!
