Re: service levels

Slight change on tone on this topic. I have just taken delivery of my new QQ and was interested in a possible service plan. So I rang my local Nissan dealer, which isn't where I got the car from, and they gave me a quote for a 3 year service plan. This plan is made up of: Year 1 - Minor service Yea...

Re: creaky drivers seat

Mine only creaked when I was turning corners or going over speed humps or bumpy ground. it mainly did it when turning to the right and my weight would shift in the seat. It was definatley coming from the base and not the seat back . Does yours sound like the same kind of problem ? Definitely - orig...

Re: 1.2 DIG-T - Oil loss

I've lost count of the number of us who've had new engines due to this fault now, at least 20 on the forums which makes you wonder how many outside the forums as well. Always wondered what would happen once it happened to someone out of warranty, as there is enough evidence now that this is a known ...

Re: creaky drivers seat

I had a creaky drivers seat made creaking noise when I made turns and my weight shifted in the seat, they said it was a loose bolt, I now have the same problem with the front passenger seat and I can not find any loose bolts in that so it is in for service this week and that is on the list of thing...

Re: Noise when accelerating 1.2 - not whistling

Yeah, the whole engine was replaced under warranty! So I took mine in yesterday, and they want to replace my engine too. 25%+ difference between the pressure in the cylinders apparently. Just need to wait for the engine to be ordered in (a week or two they reckon). I take it yours was fine with the...

Re: Noise when accelerating 1.2 - not whistling

mine didn't. only ever got the noise in 2nd gear about 2000 rpm when pulling away. 2000rpm stationary is completely different to 2000rpm driving as it's all about engine load. Hello. I think I'm having this same issue (I describe in detail in this post https://www.qashqaiforums.co.uk/viewtopic.php?...

Re: Pedal height causing pain!

definitely not had judder since the brake fluid change. I assume the clutch is hydraulic so when you press it compresses the liquid, and release it decompresses, so if the fluid is wearing a bit thin may cause the judder.

Re: Pedal height causing pain!

I had a major service last week and they told me the clutch was heavy - but then said it'll be due to wear and tear and not something covered by warranty. 4 years and 37,000 miles and clutch wearing out - nice. I also was getting a lot of judder in first gear, but I had the brake fluid replaced as p...

Re: creaky drivers seat

The springs in the back could well be the culprit - I'll check that out. Hadn't considered that and I've been concentrating underneath. My son does tend to kick the springs a lot. However, I have noticed I can alter the creakiness a lot by lowering/raising the seat to different levels - the seat bac...
