  1. What's new in this club
  2. It would be prudent to carry out as many checks as possible on the cooling system, starting with checking the fuse and connection for the fan and sensors and also the coolant levels, hoses to check the difference in temperature which would indicate an air lock or blockage.
  3. Hi all, So after sitting in a queue of traffic for maybe half an hour or more yesterday I noticed the car nearly overheating. When I managed to pull over to let it cool down, I popped the bonnet to look around. The coolant felt very warm, but not sure the radiator was as warm as I would expect. When i got home, I checked again and what I did notice though was the large cooling fan sat behind the radiator wasn't spinning like I would expect. Should this be on permanently or does it only come on when needed?
  4. Not sure but maybe worth lifting the carpets under the seats to check....I would imagine the loom has these connections so different seats can be fitted as an option at the factory
  5. Great job! thanks for sharing this guide in the forums
  6. Thanks Trevor Here is the USB port template for the centre console: And some of where I placed the double USB port for the 3rd row seats: xtrail usb port template.pdf
  7. I have increased the image upload size so you should now be able to upload the images
  8. So I decided to give the rear USB port a go. Went quite well I thought. Can't seem to get the images under the 134kb limit yet though. I did manage to scan the cutting template for the centre console USB port, should anyone need that. D'oh, can't upload that either.
  9. I think its a very handy accessory. I'm considering adding another towards the rear of the car. Cross referencing the part numbers for the 12v power socket in the centre console box, and the one at the rear of the car, they have the same part numbers. Centre console: Boot: So that does technically mean that the cabling that comes with the usb package, should fit the onto the wiring loom in the boot also. I'll rake a chance and order one, and see what space there is to mount this in the 3rd row of seating/boot area. For information, I bought the kit for £21 from a Renault parts dealer on ebay. Other sellers have them on there for up to £68. So worth it, I believe for an OEM part.
  10. Has any fitted the leather/heated front seats themselves? Do you know if the wiring loom for the motorised seats would already be under the carpet? I'm not too fussed about the heated part just yet, as I'd need the switches anyway. But I wouldn't want to fit the front seats and not be able to move them.
  11. Did you manage to find anything out about this? I can see there are some modules on aliexpress: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4001148007160.html They seem to make it look like a simple plug and play adapter to go into the door wiring. But it can't be as simple as that. For a start, the module looks like its plugged into a standard part of the loom. So not sure what happens to the part that should be plugged in there. These sort of things used to be easy enough with after market alarm systems. But not sure if many people tend to put after market alarms on cars these days, as security is supposedly so good (excluding keyless entry relay thefts)
  12. Does sound like a driveshaft but have heard the clunking coming from the rear diff on tarmac when I've forgotten to switch it back
  13. Thanks for uploading the instructions and running through the fitting procedure, very useful to anyone else who also wishes to install additional charge points.
  14. I've just fitted the rear double USB kit to my 2017 X-trail. Got to have it to keep the kids devices charged on long journeys. I thought I'd upload the instructions, for anyone who wanted to take a look before they decided to do it. I couldn't see them for the X-Trail anywhere, saw some for the Qashqai. Some cutting is involved, which didn't bother me, but might be a bit scary for some people. I was going to put USB ports in the back either way, but this kit was much easier as it its plug and play from the 12v socket in the centre console storage bin. The instructions didn't make much sense to me, but I will add that in Figure 10, it isn't clear that there is a torx head screw to undo, so you can pull the rear panel off with the fans on. You only need to remove this and not the whole lid of the storage bin. To access the screws, there is rectangle piece between the hinges of the lid, that you can just unclip. It does come with cutting template to line up where you need to cut. I was hoping to fit the ports closer to the top, so the kids don't break it, or any cables when getting in and out, but space is restricted behind the panel, so it does need to be done at the bottom.
  15. Hi yes there is a clicking and clunking sound, when accelerating and also the car used to have an annoying intermittent squeak, more on the left side of the car and this is the same drive shaft that needs to be replaced, so hoping this will resolve that as well. Did you have the same issue?
  16. If there is a clunking noise on acceleration or most definitely when turning full lock in one or either direction. Also, this could be that the transmission is in 4WD on tarmac and can destroy the rear differential
  17. Hi has anyone ever had to replace a drive shaft?. What signs did you find when you required the drive shaft replaced please?
  18. I have a 2015 x trail with standard radio and bluetooth. Does any one know if the wiring loom is the same for all models of the x trail and if i can fit the dab / sat nav/bluetooth unit straight in? Also would i have to change the aerial for a sharks tooth receiver? Thanks in advance
  19. Nice simple solution if not a little fiddly to resolve 🙂
  20. Hi yep that was the problem. There were 4 or 5 cables broken and majority of others were on the way to failing. Outer sheathing on majority was cracking and starting to break
  21. Only other thing I can think of is the wiring loom that goes from the drivers door to the A post is broken. Peel back the rubber gaiter and also inspect the connections. Sometimes, when a door is opened and closed over time the wiring breaks where it articulates (also happens on tailgates).
  22. Hi I have replaced both switches and nothing has changed. Passenger side only goes down from switch and neither fronts work from drivers switch!
  23. I cannot think of any particular reason the windows are functioning as they are. Maybe best to wait to see what occurs when you fit the new window switch. Let us know the outcome
  24. Hi we have a 2016 xtrail. The passenger front window will only go down on passenger button and not up. It also won’t work from drivers master switch. The drivers side window will not go up or down off the button! (Rear windows work fine) I can raise and lower both front windows if I connect abattery straight to motors so motors work. I have changed the master switch on drivers side for a new one but no difference. I have also got a new passenger switch coming to try. Is there anything I am missing or something else to check?? Thanks
  25. I believe it is on the rear of the engine lower down ..... near the oil filter possibly?
  26. Hiya all I am new to this site I live in Exeter Devon in the UK . I really hope someone maybe able to tell/show me the location of the oil pressure switch on a 2008 T31 2lt DCI X trail I need to do a pressure test and I am pulling the few remaining hairs out of my head looking for it Any help greatly appreciated.
