Oil Filter Case Failure


Hi Diesel Drivers

Just got my 2009 TL Turbo Diesel serviced at my local garage.

On it's return I noticed oil on my driveway. On investigation realised it was coming from the Xtrail. Could not see exactly where the problem was but the splash guard protecting the motor has padding on the inside which had acted as a nappy and soaked up most of the spil until becoming saturated and dripping.

Returned the car to the garage to be informed that the oil filter casing had failed. The mechanic fobbed it of a a common thing that happens with these new type plastic casings. No problems we'll get you a new one. Cost $150 Thanks for coming.

I wasn't really buying this. Spoke to the Nissan Dealer spare parts and thier mechanics and got the impression it was not that common in fact rare for these to fail. The spare parts guy had never seen one before. Over tightening was suggested as the cause by the Nissan Mechanics rather than faulty part. I was thinking that too.

Has anyone else experienced a similar failure??

Cheers Ian

Re: Oil Filter Case Failure


The service guys damaged the oil cover/housing on my car and welded it together instead of replacing it. Worse of all, they didn't tell me about it. Told them too specially that the car was doing some remote travelling.

Claiming compensation for their mistake.
