Re:


Is there any statutory/obligatory time limitation on recalls?

I'm still unsure if my 2005 T30 has the original (given I know squat (technical) about cats apart from what they do). I asked the dealer and 'he' stated that it wasn't a problem when I had it in fo a service last time.

Re:


According to the ACCC, it seems the recalls must remain active for at least 5 years from the date of the announcement, as such this recall was closed on the 26th August 2010 and Nissan Australia have no further obligation to fix this fault under this recall.

Re:


Do Nissan keep a central database of vehicles rectified under the recall. i.e how to tell if it's been done or not?

If your VIN within the affected range you can contact Nissan Australia and they would have a record of when the recall service was carried out on your vehicle and they will also be able to tell you if it hasn't been done at all.

Re: Recall Catalytic Converter & O2 Sensor Breakage


So with my head gasket failure I have inspected my exhaust manifold. Recall was done in 2005 to weld the boss, inspect the cat and computer remap. The catalyst now has damage (160K kms) visible via the O2 sensor hole. About the size of a 50c piece, slight cracking of the catalyst material. Turned the manifold upside down and gave it a bit of a shake, sure enough bits of catalyst ceramic started coming out.

I guess Nissan are not going to want to hear about it as there is no obligation under the recall anymore emoticon. So I have two options: a manifold with an intact catalyst from a wrecker, and may run into the issue again anyway, or an aftermarket exhaust. Does anyone know if the manifold design was changed in later revisions of the X-trail, I may get lucky and get a later one from a wrecker.

As mine's an 02 model I am not going to be able to just replace the header, I will need to put a catalyst into the pipework as there is no second cat on the car.

Re: Recall Catalytic Converter & O2 Sensor Breakage


Sorry I should add that with the head off I can see there is no visible scoring of the cylinder walls thankfully and the bottom of the head didn't seem to have visibile damage. I guess I can either be thankful that the pieces that did break off either weren't big enough to cause damage or weren't able to get back into the engine.

Re:


Hi Ben,

The manifold and the primary cat converter design remained the same for all T30 models, except from 2006 the T30 models started to have the secondary cat converter under the car.

You best and safest bet is to upgrade the headers and have an inline stainless steel cat fitted, that way you won't have to worry about this issue ever again. I would strongly advise against getting the manifold and ceramic cat converter 2nd hand, as you could potentially face this issue all over again.

Yep, agreed. Going to ring a couple of exhaust shops for a quote on manifold & welded cat in the mid-pipe - surely one of them has seen the issue before.

Re: Recall Catalytic Converter & O2 Sensor Breakage


Have been quoted $320 installed and fitted for an SS hiflow cat. Sounds pretty good. Just gotta sort out the cat in the manifold.

Rebuild is taking a little longer, head is still in the shop and probably ready tomorrow, had to come back to Sydney for work, aiming to get down and get it back together in the back half of this week. Good news is no crack or warps in the head assembly or cams, exhaust valves and seats were screwed though so all need to be replaced, thankfully shop has them for $12 each so $100 for the set!

Get an aftermarket Ajusa head gasket from the engine shop as part of the VRS set (so have to ebay the nissan one) which is supposedly super strong, guys are running big boost on the Ajusa HG with no issues so should be good for my humble Exy...

Going to do water pump, both thermostats, cam+crank sensor, chain tensioner, ARP head bolts I think they are getting me ($50 a set), refill with full synth oil after flushing out the system with some cheap oil, Nissan genuine coolant only from now on. Looks like about $2,200 worth of work all up, hate to think what it'd cost me at a mechanic for all the labour!
