    Advice on selling to breakers or Spares/Repair

    Hi All, My engine gave up on my teg with suspected "big end" issues last week and will be collecting my 2016 Nissan X-Trail at the end of the week. What's everyone's experience with selling to breakers or Spares/Repair ? (I'm in the Glasgow area.) Not sure if it's worth the effort fixing the...

    Front Bumper & Headlight Removal

    Cheers for the guide .. saved me a trip to the garage to change a HID bulb. U need a really really long socket extension as I needed to take a trip to Halfords mid job to get a longer one 😁 Note my bumper had a pop fastener on the very edge each side that wasn't in the guide. Connected the...

    When does your empty light come on?

    when mine comes its above the Red empty marker (about 1/3 of the way between empty and the first marker) I can normally put in 43 litres to max it out again once the light comes on.

    Stereo Loom power connections

    Hi.... I'm looking to install a USB charger in the single Din pocket rather than connecting one into the cigarette lighter so the wire are all hidden when not in use. I want it only to be powered when the ignition is on, is there any connections on the stereo wiring loom that I could use or...

    The "what have you done to your DC5 this weekend" thread

    Swapped my K&N filter for a do-luck one ... K&N has been on for years and never cleaned , think it must have been super dirty as with the do-luck in now its revving and sounding much better .. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Steering knocking when stationary

    I had a similar sounding noise turning to the left and ended up in a snapped front left eibach spring 2 weeks ago. Not sure if the noise was due to the top mount which then snapped the spring or just the spring weakening? The garage did check the top mount and said it looked ok but gave it a...

    The "what have you done to your DC5 this weekend" thread

    got my hands really dirty this weekend.... :xgrin: replaced the blown interior roof bulb with a new LED one and finally got around to replacing the bluey/white sidelights that the garage fitted ages ago with super bright white LED ones.

    snapped front eibach

    yeah the garage cleaned and lubricated the top mounts to make sure they were ok before fitting the new springs.

    Are these springs OK to re-fit?

    Are these springs OK to re-fit?

    I needed the car back on the road so couldn't wait for a warranty claim but will drop them at mail and see what they say. cheers. That's what the garage recommended .. pick it up this afternoon so hopefully still gets in the drive. cheers for all the replies.

    Are these springs OK to re-fit?

    cheers for the replies.... but it doesn't look like I need to put these on now. The garage I use has sourced me some 6 month old eibach sportline springs from another customer who just removed them to put on coilovers a few days ago. Only worry is that the front might be a bit low for getting...

    Are these springs OK to re-fit?

    Hi All, I've got eibach pro springs fitted on OEM shocks but one of the springs snapped today. I've still got my OEM springs but they look a bit rusty, would they still be ok to put back on the car? Or will I just need to buy a new set of springs? Thanks...
