Re: Cargo barrier and blind


There seems to be a few threads about cargo blinds, so hopefully this is the most relevant one.

I'm looking into getting one for my 2012 Series 5 T31 ST, probably second hand because I'm a tight arse. I popped the little plastic covers off inside the cargo area, and it looks like the blind will just slot in. Is this the case, or are extra bits needed? Also, are there any special bits needed to hook the front bit of the blind onto the rear seats, or does it have some sort of hooky things built into it?

Re:


Hit evilbay mate and you'll find aftermarket ones there. The factory one requires that you buy the whole kit including the back of the seats if yours don't come with provisions for the hooks of the blind to attach to.

The aftermarket one on eBay doesn't require the back of the seats to be changed at all as it clips onto the back of the headrests.

Just type in "x-trail blind" in the search field and you should see them. They're priced for about $130+ bucks which is far less costly than the factory one.

Re:


Your series 5 should have the seat back attachments already in place (they were on my series 4 ST). I picked up a genuine blind from Gumtree, and there's probably some on ebay too.

It plugs straight into the side panels that you've identified, and is spring loaded at one end to let you take it in and out easily.

Re: MAIL-ORDER CARGO BLINDS TESTED - CAN SEE UNDER THRU SIDE WINDOW


HI all,
I saw an aftermarket cargo blind on Ebay for $130-$140 plus postage (only $12 postage struck me as cheap). So I called the seller and drove out to Rydalmere for a look first. Glad I did.

They seem GOOD QUALITY but the rear aplit section of the blind that anchors to the rear headrests rides well above the bottom edge of the side window (can't remember exactly how far up) so you can easily see under the blind thru the window.

The other possible negative were the clips used to attach the extended blind to the headrest bars. They felt flimsy and easy to pull off. I suspected they might detach from vibration, definitely if only one side of the split blind was attached. But you could easily modify the hooks,

My T31 doesn't have any provision for hooking the blind lower down to the back of the seat (I have no insets in the floor) and this type of blind doesn't look like it was made to fit that way.

This one had a quality mechanism (dual roller) that fits perfectly into the side walls of the cargo bay (about midway) and the material/finish is top quality.

I'm thinking maybe I should have bought one then blacked out the lower half of the side windows and improved the headrest clips.

We took ours out because it got in the way. It's on the shelf in the shed.
