Re: Revhead's Mota


Just replaced all 4 struts with KYB gas Struts.

Got them cheaper from a UK supplier, complete with dust boots and bump stops (which are not available in Australia) with shipping for less than the struts cost on their own from any Australian supplier.

Also replaced both front driveshafts, genuine Nissan parts purchased from Amayama, for half the dealer price.

DIYs for both will be submitted to the forum shortly.

Re: Revhead's Mota


Just replaced the starter motor. Purchased from an ebay member thehan13 for $149 posted. This is the ebay seller store for Lanka Auto Electrical in Dandenong VIC, so a fully registered business.
Not an original Bosch but perfectly compatible with same mounting and connections. Difficult to tell the difference actually and highly recommended. They also noted on the invoice it is suitable for T30 and T31 Xtrails.

Only really needed the starter solenoid as that was the faulty part but with a replacement from Amayama being around $100+postage I thought best to replace the whole assembly for that price considering it is almost 15yrs old and the brushes would be getting fairly worn too.

Only took about an hour to replace. Most of the time was spent removing the air intake filter box to get access.

Re: Revhead's Mota


So what do you do with that annoying spare space for a button/indicator in the top left corner of the radio surround in your T30 ?

I have added a USB panel socket extension for the car computer
