Sorry Stephen, didn't realize there was so little room in the T31 bumper for the standard hitch lock pin to fit in emoticon

Re: loafer's ride


Had the 10,000km service done Tuesday (just past) and asked to have the Micro Carbon filter installed. After dismantling 90% of the glove box, we found that we were unable to locate the housing for the filter. Rang Nissan and had the instructions faxed over, but this too, didn't help much. As I was putting the glove compartment back together, I was able to reach up under the unit and found (with a little arm twisting) that the filter could be installed without too much fuss - just removed the supporting clip, removed the old paper one and replaced it with the Micro Carbon filter. Easy! emoticon

Stephen,

Have you missed the fitting and removal instructions I posted HERE? emoticon

The glovebox doesn't need to be removed at all in the T31 to get to the microfilter housing.

Yep, missed that one emoticon

Oh well, I guess I have learnt a few things from this little exercise emoticon - mainly, check and re-check the posts before proceeding with installs emoticon

Thanks anyway, Jalal. emoticon

Hi Stephen just got back from ARB at coopers plains and they showed me a recovery point that slots into the tow bar where your tongue goes and has a shackle on it ready for recovery and thought you may want to have a look at it at your nearest ARB store.

Retail for around $55,thought that was reasonable.

Regards Scot emoticon

Bugger! 8( I was in at the ARB (Sumner Park) shop this morning too emoticon .

Thanks Scot. I remember reading somewhere about using the hitch pin as an anchor point for the recovery strap (article? mentioned how strong the pins are) but I wouldn't use it before getting some proper advice.

I have just read in the June/July 2008 RoadAhead magazine (RACQ) article about snatch strap safety and the new safety standards for them. Amongst other things, the article states, "The mandatory warning statement highlights the danger of not using the strap in accordance with instructions and of using vehicle attachment points such as tie-down eyes and towballs, which are not designed for recovery".

I will have a look around for the article I saw (re using the hitch pin) and post a quote.

In the meantime, could you post a pic (if you have one) of the ARB recovery point slot thingy in the "towing" thread? It might be something that others may be interested in, too.

EDIT - spelling typo

I will have to go back to the ARB store and see if I can gain a photo of one as I did not have my camera with me ,

It is just a solid metal like your tongue and it locks in with the lynch pin.

I will ring ARB and see if they can email me a picture.

Regards Scot

Update I have posted a link in recovery points emoticon

Scot, since you posted this info, I have seen 3 (bright yellow) of these recovery shackles on suburban soccer mum trucks emoticon .

It looks like these 4B's have never been off road - perhaps they've installed them to recover their mates from crowded shopping carparks or slightly soggy soccer fields emoticon emoticon emoticon

EDIT - gramatical correction emoticon

Well Jalal. It doesn't get much better emoticon

Popped into Arrow Caravans (they supplied & installed the towbar) on Monday to pick up the appropriate hitch pin lock, but was informed that the shorter (bent) version would not fit either as the lock extends too far for ease of access 8(

AC guy suggested I drill a larger hole into the existing pin and simply lock it with a padlock. A hell of a lot cheaper, too. Will just have to get used to hearing the padlock rattling away underneath emoticon
