J11 QQ need 28' and 17' wiper blades. This size fit perfectly. Dab the wiper stalk twice to put the blades in an up right position on the screen. Costco do a pair of Michelin blades for £15.

Re: Air Con Service

Good idea to run the Air con once a month. If it cools and de mists the car all is well I'd say. Nissan is in it to make cash so an air con service is easy money for them.

Re: Tyre pressure system (TPS)

My tpms has developed a leak and there does not hold the pressure in the tyre. Can a kit solve this problem or will it need a new tpms unit fitted . If so will a unit off the internet be ok ? Or is it a trip to the dealer ship. Any help welcome.

Re: 19 tekna alloys.

Great replies thank you all. I ask as when I look for Tekna Alloy wheels they look the same Quasqai and X Trail so if the holes are the same pitch I suppose they will fit both cars. Some of my Quashqai alloys are marked to was thinking of buying a couple of new ones in the local ads.
