You should have the adaptor for the locking wheel nuts, but not the jack or wheelbrace
Sorry for the off-topic, I think mine is "normal" considering the emergency kit. Found this image online and mine looks like this, nothing more, nothing less:

I didn't have the tweezer tool to remove the wheel nut cover, as I found out Sunday when I got a puncture!

Sorry to hear that.
Here something strange happened. Yesterday the pedal was just perfect, like everything was brand new. Today is rough again!!!!! Holy f....

Could this be just the spring behind the clutch pedal? I've tried to lubrificate it...

It's still bad I think. The car had a new gearbox in the last 2 weeks, but it didn't make any difference (I hoped...!)

I'm not sure what to do, the dealership has had a few people test drive it and insist there is nothing wrong!

A new gearbox is quite something... which were the symptoms?

Mine will come back home tomorrow or friday let's see. In the meantime I'm driving a Micra, the clutch pedal is smoother even though is a tiny sensation such as the qashqai, but less.

The last few days the situation improved on the qashqai, but far from good.

An unrelated fault... the gearbox made a 'whirring' noise when shifting down from 3rd to 2nd gear, whilst clutch was still pressed. The new gearbox has resolved that one thankfully.

Hopefully you get a good result, if so it would be interesting to hear what was done!

Nope, still as bad.

Yesterday the pedal dropped to the floor, and car got recovered to dealership.

I was expecting a major failure, linked to the issues I've reported, but in the end it was a clip connecting the pedal to the metal rod (?) had come off. Apparently it's a known issue !

11 weeks into ownership, and it's bee back to the dealer 4 times!
