Re:


Refer to THIS page Neil and use the fitting instructions inside th box which came with the strut bar.

Loosening the bracket of the air filter box and putting it back on is not an easy task, so take your time doing it.

Re: X-Trail Strut Bar


Information in regards to fitting the Beatrush Strut Bar to a Ser 4 Petrol you do not have to undo the 3 Clamps on the black air pipes that go to the Airbox to fit the Strut Bar .There is a NUT down below the airbox that can be undone so then the airbox just lifts up enough to place the bracket under the strut airbox nut,simple.Cant show you a photo of the bottom nut cant get camera doen there but you use a long bar on ratchet to get to it from above,Hope this helps.

Mine fitted now and notice the difference.

Good stuff Neil, it's not an Alutec strut bar by the way emoticon

That bottom bolt and rubber bracket drove me crazy, as I couldn't slot the airbox back onto it no matter how hard I tried. It took me a couple of days to figure it out emoticon

Re: X-Trail Strut Bar


Hi all,

Had an issue with my strut bar interfering with the boost solenoid, anyways, after 3 boost solenoids being replaced by Nissan, they said its been an issue with the strut bar rubbing the solenoid and leading to its failure. (They insulated it, etc etc) Not sure if anyone else had this issue with a Diesel.

Re:


This is the first I have heard of this Ben and I fitted the strut bar on the diesel T31 myself before and it wasn't rubbing on anything.

So, for Nissan to claim this and blame the strut is ridiculous indeed!

If the strut was fitted correctly, it won't rub on anything at all.

Re: X-Trail Strut Bar


Ben,

My first X-trail was a TS (march 09) and now I have the TL (nov 12), and neither have had any issue with this happening.

If installed correctly, the strut bar will not rub on anything (or have anything rubbing on it that shouldn't be there). Even after 3.5 years of dirt roads the TS had no problems with any of the fitted extras. The new owner was happy that there was a strut bar on the car.

However if you do not install the pipe through the bar (as per instructions), then it may have other problems.

If anyone is a little worried that the provided piece of sticky rubber is not enough then you can use a small cable tie to suspend it slightly. As I have shown is the second picture. Just make sure the tie is on the padded area. I will show another modification to this when I get back to work next week.

Thanks for the confirmation Maryann and indeed that piece of supplied rubber that goes under the black hose section on the right side of the strut bar base is VERY important indeed and it is supplied with the strut bar for a reason.

Re:


If you get pre-delivery to install it like I did this time they will forget it.

I have something similar at work that I can use and its heat on edging. There will always be a pressure groove in the padding surrounding the pipe,that is normal even with the second bit on the strut bar.
