Qashqai J11 - boot rear light gap

Post by d0Min_uS » Sat Feb 17, 2018 1:31 am

Hello,

Today I admire the ass of my car and I discover that is not good aligned.

The left side has more gap and the right side is more tight.

I put some photo taken from rear and from boot nut fix.

How to fix that?

I suppose the question to be asked is as the QQ is a 2014 Model : are you the original owner (you know the history), has the QQ been in an accident or is it a manufacturing / quality issue fault. We had a problem on our 14 Model with alignment of the Bonnet which was corrected. As the QQ appears to be out of Guarantee it looks like you will have to try the adjustment yourself or pay someone to do it - hope you get it sorted Dave :)

Hello, Dave

The car not have accident in history, and have the nissan extended warranty to 11.2019.

The car was purchased in 08.2017 from German private seller with all service history etc.

Here in Romania, IASI city the Nissan dealer have poor customer relationship and one service (DACIA, RENAULT & NISSAN have the same service people for car and poor knowledge for NISSAN).

Always need to call/e-mail the nissan center to resolve something.

That's why, I want to resolve if it's possible, by myself. :) Dealer will be last choice!

To be fair the photos you’ve taken are done from slightly different angles. If the angles were the same the gap won’t seem as bad.
Also, are the light clusters secured properly? If one is slightly loose then that would also give the illusion of misalignment.

I would just leave it alone as long as no water is entering the boot.

My QQ is under still warranty, the nearside passenger door sticks out at the bottom a little amount. Chances are if I let Nissan try fix it, they will cause something else to go wrong.

Hello, I will verify this day light cluster from both side too see if the problem is from here. I will come with feedback soon.

Thanks for you reply!

Yes, no water leak but stay in my head this gap. I will verify the light cluster and if it's not from here i will leave it alone. :)

Nissan dealer no confidence for me too!
