  1. 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?
  2. Hi has anyone ever had to replace a drive shaft?. What signs did you find when you required the drive shaft replaced please?
  3. Hi I has anyone ever had to replace a gearbox stabiliser mount?. I have a 15plate Nissan xtrail and when I took the car to Nissan, they advised the car may require the engine mounts to be replaced at over £300k. Took the car to my local indi garage and they reckon its the gearbox stabiliser mounts that needs to be replaced at under £70. Has anyone had to replace the gearbox stabiliser mounts if so, what sort of sounds did you hear from the car. In my case, I hear a soft thud, when I compress the clutch, accelerator and also change the gears, so could this be a gearbox stabiliser mount issue?
  4. So with all the issues, I've had with my Glyn Hopkin garage, I have decided to send through a complaint to Nissan. Anyone, done this before and is it worth it or a waste of time?. So in my situation, was told that the squeak I was having, was coming from non manufacturers brakes, and these needed to be replaced. Since then, the sound has not stopped, and now the manager of the branch, is not responding to my emails for support,even though he does acknowledge the squeak is still there. Where do I escalate this to please? Nissan or Glyn Hopkin? Anyone ever complained before and what was your experience please?
  5. My nissan x trail, 2015 model, has done 100k miles and more recently, its developed a squeak, which is more audible, when driving at a speed under 15 miles. The sound happens after driving for say a distance of 5 miles and it's like a loud squeak, almost as though, when the wheel is going round, its catching onto something. My local Nissan initially advised changing the brakes, but the sound has remained and they just told me, they don't know where its coming from, even though I have taken them on a test drive and they heard the sound. I have attached the sound, in the hope that someone on here might have an idea of what this is. Nissan have advised they have checked the car and all is good, but they can't figure out where its coming from. I hope you can here the sound, if not let me know, so I can upload on YouTube. Thanks.

  6. Hi my xtrail 2016 has got some marks and scratches on the bodywork. Just wanted to find out if anyone has found The food polish, to hide these. Also out of interest, how much would a complete car bodywork respray cost for a 16 plate xtrail please?
  7. Hi just joined but the forums,why the forums look dead quiet.
