Hey, I know this has been a re-emerging topic on many occasions and I have been through and read them all with no luck.

Just got a second hand snorkel and would prefer to get a template before fitting.

Has anyone got a template they have kept for a series 4 or above
GU (square shape) lying around or know of one that I can borrow or buy??

I do know they are few and far between, however I've suggested before in another thread that cardboard is a good substitute.

Cheers mate, I may have to go that way. Rang nissan berwick and dandenong, they said they come with every snorkel so there is no need to save them.
They were un willing to help out at all.
Might pull my mates snorkel off and make some templates to sell.


Admin feel free to delete this now, Thanks

No worries! You can make a template with the snorkel you have. (first post states you do). I'd mark the cardboard with the bolts and air outlet in the back of the snorkel before I used a guard.

We should really have a thread with it in printable PDF format. Hasn't been done yet, but with the amount of requests there has to be someone with an original template that can soft copy. You could also have the full gamut. Make it a one stop thread in the archives with the whole range of available styles.

Good luck mate!

Can you do the forum a favour and don't throw it out until further notice. I sent a PM to a Mod and waiting on a reply.

Sorry for hijacking OP.

Great....more the reason to start a "Snorkel Template" thread. A downloadable PDF soft copy should be cheap if it fits on A3 Paper.

Yes thats a damn good idea. With the amount of people chasing them and the fact you cant seem to get one from nissan easily its worth logging all models so they are redly available.

I've tracked down a template for a genuine nissan snorkel Series 4 and up.
I will be keeping it, so if anyone else needs this model they can purchase it, as it cost me.

Also I have a safari snorkel template available too, series 4 and up.

ADMIN if you could make this a sticky somewhere or something similar it could be of use.

It doesn't need to be a sticky as its not a common enough question/problem.

I was thinking GU2's "Newbie Archive" thread would be a good enough place for it.

If anyone needs a genuine snorkel template I have a few. I work for nissan as an accessory fitter and fit snorkels and keep all the templates i use in my toolbox for safe keeping.

Scanning doesn't always work because someone often the image is shrunk in the scan and print.

i can confirm that the tjm is not the same as the genuine nissan snorkel the bolts holes are completely different and in genuine snorkels series 123 have different hole pattern to series 4, so im still looking for a series 123 template if anyone has 1
