Annoying rattle/knock


Hi all, proud owner of T32 ST-L 2015 4WD and loving it but one issue is driving me insane! There is a knock/rattle coming from the rear LHS and it sounds like it's behind the plastic panel behind the seat where the seat belt is. I've had everything out including spare wheel, jack, tools etc everything but still it persists. I can be going very slowly over even slightly uneven ground or even just cornering on our uneven bitumen in Queensland and the sound will be there. It sounds like metal on plastic or something similar. I've even checked under the wheel for a loose lining but to no avail. If there's an easy way to get that rear plastic panel off then if someone could show me (with pictures) that would be great! Someone suggested it could be inside there with the rear seat belt tensioner but I literally have no idea! If anyone could help you'd make me very happy! Has anyone else suffered this?

Re: Annoying rattle/knock


I had a couple of knocks coming from the LHS rear as well in my T31. The first noise I had was a top shock absorber bolt, but that was more of a loud knock. The other noise I still have is the LHS backseat backrest/upright where the seats top pin (for lowering and raising the backrest) engages into the catch. Grab the top of the backrest and push it back and forth and see if it makes the same noise. I found that particular noise disappeared when someone sat in that seat as it took up the slack around the pin. I'm not sure if yours will be the same being a T32, but it's worth a try.

Cheers

Hi Eric, thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I've looked at the back seat mechanism and even had my wife travel in the back seat to try and identify the source. It is definitely coming from behind the rear left plastic panel and sounds like a knocking metal on plastics but I simply have no idea how to remove that panel to have a look. If anyone could help - it's driving me insane!

This board unfortunately doesn't ever seem to be that active..

I think Bob it is more that not all members would have had the same problem or the same model Xtrail and rather than posting unnecessary posts saying they don't know it is best left for someone who has had a similar problem, like Eric, to chime in with whatever help they might be able to offer.

One thing I have found useful is to get a copy of the Electronic Service Manual for your Xtrail model. This allows you to see exactly how to remove panels yourself to find the cause quicker and then you could post what you found and maybe help others in the future emoticon

Thanks Kev, good idea. How do I get hold of the electronic service manual for a T32? Any ideas? Can I download it from somewhere?

Unfortunately we don't have one on the forum.
There are some on ebay if you search for Nissan Xtrail T32 Workshop Manual. You will find options for both a download and a CD version but they are all only for the 2.5 Petrol variant.
Maybe one from the UK might have the diesel version if you need it.

Try the carmanualsclub.com

I see they have electronic version for the T31 (https://carmanualsclub.com/nissan-x-trail-service-repair-manual/), imagine if you poked around you'd find something for a T32.
