Fault with 1999 Patrol 4.2l Turbo

On Sarurday I completed the Sand driving part of the 4WD Driver Training Course with my Club, (Nissan Patrol 4WD Club of ACT & NSW), was a great day up @ Stockton Beach & the sand dunes.

My vehicle went very well, right @ the end of the day, The Radator hose sprung a leak, the reason, Nissan use a Cable tie towards the bottom of the hose to hold it in place, so that the hose is held away from the AirCon pully.

Without that cable tie holding the hose back, it comes in contact with the pully, thus it cuts into the hose. I was able to do a quick fix with some "rescue Tape" to get me home.

2 points to come out of this, 1) I replaced the hose & cut 2 tenths of an inch off the bottom for a better fit, which increases the gap between the hose & AirCon Pully.
2) I have read the manual, no where does it give any info about this problem. Nissan need to look @ fixing this, using a 25 cent cable tie could end up costing huge dollars to be recovered if your in the outback.

I'll call Nissan Australia in the morning.

This is farkin hillarious !

I can just imagine the nissan hq switch bitch rolling thier eyes and doodling on a notepad whilst taking your call.

Its the best part of 12 years old and you may use it in a desert/outback if you want, Nissan is not forcing to you too.

I cant believe your actually serious about calling Nissan, unless your one of these new age numpties who think that a company is responsible for possibly anything that could ever conceivably be done too or happen to a product regardless of when it was originally sold. Refer to the alloy wheel thread for such examples.
