Hi Guys,

Wondering if anyone has changed a sump on the 3ltr CRTD before?

Nissan quated 14hrs to do the job and said you have to drop the gear box.

Any suggestions?

Yeah mate. There is a couple of bolts that are covered up by the bellhousing.
The gearbox needs to be removed to remove the sump.

Thank,s

My rig is out of warranty but nissan will supply the sump so I'm still arguing with the dealership for the labour cost.

Hi Guys,

I've had a win with Nissan Australia and my local Nissan dealership.

Nissan Australia will pay for the sump and the local dealer will cover the cost of the labour.

I had reciepts and records and rang nissan Australia every day, the final straw was when I took my wife doen there yesterday.

We strarted off with Nissan supplying the sump as Good Will the me paying for all the labour the half the labour then one third to nothing.

I feel like I've had a massive win

It had to replaced because of a crack at the very front of the sump. There is a plug just below the bottom pullry. It was over tightened and had a hairline crack.

Same happened to mine. The Nissan dealer did it up too tight and Crrrrack! I was without the vehicle for 3 more days while they got a new sump in!
