And don't use the puncture repair gunk; damages TPMS valve (expensive) and in most cases
tyre depot is then unable to repair your puncture, because of coating on inside of tyre :(
Use the free breakdown Service from Nissan (RAC actually); applies under warranty and each 12 months after
a Nissan dealer service.

Related to this query. I decided to rotate wheels a week or two ago. When I offered the wheel brace to the nuts the brace seemed much too small.
I checked the handbook for inspiration but nothing found. I discovered a tweezers in the boot which I assumed could be used for changing fuses.
However, I discovered that the wheel nuts were covered by a plastic trim and the tweezers was used to remove these, but no mention of this in the handbook. Different from my previous J10 model which did not have these covers. This could have been a disaster on a dark winter's night at the side of the road.

lol, so funny.

tweezers are to remove the caps that cover the nuts are not so difficult to spot.

logic dictate tweezers in the fuse box are for fuses, tweezers in the wheel well are for hum, let me think :) the japs are so far ahead of the game

I just wanted to point out that this is not mentioned in the handbook and may be helpful to others not as intelligent as you.

Billgo, don't take it to heart. I'm famous at work for asking a question only to find the answer staring me in the face the moment my mouth closes, followed by me slapping my forehead, followed by a "doh!". :lol:

I was also baffled by the wheel thingy and didn't know about the covers on the wheel nuts. I spent the day trying to find a 23mm socket !!!!!
as previously said DOH !!!!

I had same issue when I wanted to fit my winter tyres. The dealership had left the locking nut & cap took in the glovebox but I got there in the end.
