#2490 of 2519 Perfect picture for window switch!!!
Sep 11, 2006 (11:29 am)
Your new picture was very helpful. At least now I can see how I can replace the whole switch unit for around $80, if I happen to break the top, although I'll try my engine throttle cleaner to clean the contact first, since the engine throttle cleaner is supposed to clean any carbon on a surface.
Here are a couple of legendary issue with Nissan Quest.
After I was ripped off for the blower motor resistor when A/C works only at high speed, I decided to repair as much as I can. I paid about $150 to replace the blower motor resistor, but after I realized it's an easy repair, I replaced it for myself at the second time when the resistor didn't work. The resistor costed me about $40.
The other issue I had was a lower ball joint. I live right next to the Nissan Tech Center in Farmington Hills of Michigan. The lower ball joints are notorious for its fast wear. Other than low fuel economy, I like my Quest.
Thank you for your quick help. I really appreciate it.
#2491 of 2519 Better replace the whole switch unit

Steve, last night I tried to clean the contact inside the switch, but found out it's very hard to access to the innards. I better spend $70 to buy the switch unit.

Rats. I just purchased some contact cleaner about an hour ago. Guess I'll give it a shot anyway - maybe drill a hole in it.

#2493 of 2519 Jerky villager when air is on

My van gets jerky when the air is on and only seems to do it at a stop light or sign. Any answers to why that would be?

Does anyone know the order of bleeding for the 1997 Villager? Is it the same as the 95?

I had the same problem, more prevelent in colder temps. I replaced the U-turn hoses (1/4" or 5/16" I think) at the ends of the injector manifolds and cured the problem.

#2497 of 2519 '99 Quest- How do you get to the sliding door hinge?
Sep 23, 2006 (3:32 pm)
I have a '99 Quest and the passenger side sliding door is not opening and closing properly. Does anyone know how to get to the top rear hinge? There is a plastic body panel above the channel the hinge rides in, but it is not obvious how you remove it. It seems if that panel comes off I will be able to get to the inside hinge bolts which I think have come loose. Anyone been down this road before?

My '99 just has one top hinge and none of the bolts appear to be hidden by any panels. Maybe mine is a bit different from yours. I took a couple of photos since I'm not clear exactly what part you are referring to:
upper hinge 1
upper hinge 2
I haven't messed with the sliding door panels. My service manual is pretty vague. To remove the lower panel you first take off the escutcheon thingy around the door handle. It has 5 clips you pry off. Then you pry off the rest of the panel - there are 10 of those around the edges holding the panel on.
The narrow upper part of the sliding door panel is held on with three metal clips above the door handle towards the front of the door.
All it says about removal for all these clips is to wrap the tip of a flat-bladed screwdriver with a cloth. I guess you just start prying.

thanks, I probably am not being too clear here. The panel I am referring to is actually on the outside of the van. It is just above the channel that the door hinge slides along as you open it. (just below the side rear window) I believe if I can get that panel off I can check the tightness of the hinge. The problem I have is that when you open the door, you need to pull out on the left side of it for it to open. I can take a picture of what I am talking about tomorrow as it will probably make more sense.
