Hi,
I just purchased a 07 GU 3.0ltr D/turbo and I noticed it only has one reverse light on the passenger side. I went to change the bulb on the drivers side but discovered there was never a light there.
Is this correct?
Any help would be great.
Thanks

Hehehe... I got chipped by a Scaley in a Patrol a few weeks back for the same thing. I told him that no GU Patrol released in Aus has a factory RH light and he didn't believe me.

Luckily he was driving one with Gov Rego so I said "Go and check yours"... Hehehe... at least he had the grace to apologise

Yep that's right, what is even funnier is that Japs have run wires there for indicator and brake lights. Go figure the reasoning behind that. Sometimes I wonder if those making decision at Nissan are very confused persons. (I'm being very polite here, I'd prefer much stronger language to describe those but it will solve nothing.) It is the Nissan what else can you expect!
Cheers

Thats because ADR's only apply to Australia... all the other countries get Patrols with working fully tail lights. It would cost them more NOT to wire 'em and have a different loom for Aus vehicles only.

How do you remove the lens cover to access the reversing globe in the GU patrol?
I have a 2004 ST 4.2 factory fittted turbo

You do not remove the lens cover, you remove the whole thing by removing the interior panel trim and taking out the whole light assembly.
