  1. Parked on School Lane Carrington A6144 yesterday around noon. The narrow rear number looked like an import. Had a big rear wang though..
  2. On a hot day, stuck in traffic they do come on & off, but no more frequent than the standard fans. I'd say every few minutes or so.
  3. They are noticeably louder, but I don't mind as I know when they're on. It's like a constant whirring noise.
  4. I got mine from Tyreleader as they were so much cheaper than anywhere (including Camskill) I could find at the time.

    Front drop links

    They should be attached yes. Replacing them is easy, but if you find the whole balljoint spinning you may need to remove them with an angle grinder, it's how I did mine. If you're lucky there'll be flat spots on the ball joint you can hold with a spanner to stop them spinning.
  6. Just a couple of hours after seeing a 350Z I see this. Turned right onto Stamford Brook Road, with his foot down.
  7. Saw this come off the motorway at J7 M60 just after 11am this morning. Some sort of aftermarket spoiler, front splitter & side skirts.. Gave a flash but there were a few lanes between us, looked nice though.
  8. Am I right in thinking by fitting these in a pair the passenger window opens by one touch just like the drivers side?
  9. When the car starts from cold lately the revs drop to just above 1000rpm for a split second before rising to the normal level. I thought the crud build up was reducing the airflow in, thus the low revs, till the ECU detects it & opens the TB more to make up for it. Surely the best way to clean it is to open the plate to ensure it's done properly.
  10. I've done a lot of reading about this process & everyone seems to have their do's & don'ts, so I'm confused as to which way to do it on my 05 DE. Some say it's fine, other say disconnect the battery, one guy says ignition on & floor the pedal to open the throttle plate (this didn't work for me), pedal dance to reset, which a lot of people can't get it to work, amongst other suggestions. Did the spark plugs at weekend & the edge of the plate is quite cruddy. Can Nissan Datascan manually open the throttle body?
  11. Thanks, is this a big strip down job or a quick fix? For the record, I can only assume this was always just lying under the battery box as it' the first time I'd removed the tray. Am I better off getting a UK spec one? Just looking now but can't find the drain on Partslink24..
  12. Thanks Alex, do you know where it's supposed to go? Thanks.
  13. I found this hanging around under my battery tray a couple of months ago, removed it & only just remembered I still have it. I've checked on Partslink24 with my chassis number but can't seem to find what it is, or where it goes?? Answers on a postcard please..
  14. Are these available on their own new? Mine is getting a bit lazy, sometimes not folding out more than a few mm, but folds in ok. You can hear the motor trying, but no real movement. Don't really want a used one as that'll be at least 10yrs old anyway. Anyone any ideas?
