#24 of 2771 Nissan Pathfinder/Terrano brake problem (1990)
Mar 03, 2001 (7:50 pm)
The brake pedal is spongy and sinks to the floor. It has new master cylinder, vacuum booster, disc pads. Re-machined discs. It has been repeatedly bled thoroughly. The calipers have been taken off and checked for leaks and smoothness of function (not sticking or binding). There is no fluid loss and no leaks. The master cylinder has had the 3 lines disconnected and the ports plugged. The problem disappears (therefore no master cylinder bypassing). The brake hoses are OK. The only peculiar thing seems to be some flexing of the calipers themselves when the pressure is applied to the brake pedal. Whats wrong?, anybody.

bloggs1: Did you do anything the the drums brakes?? Does your PF have ABS?
If you "pump: does the peddle furm-up? Try adjusting the rear brakes. The procedure
might not be in the manual.

I'm Wondering where the sensor for the odometer is located on my truck. I now its similar to the pathfinder. That is why I'm asking here. Is it located near the transmission. Or is it located some place else.

I just bought a new PF 2001. I love it. One problem though. There is a strong chemical odor after you get where you are going and get out. Smells like it may be coming from under the vehicle. Any ideas ?

azs: The PF speedo operates off the ABS speed sensors. I dought if
the Frontier uses the same.
iveydude: The New Car Smell several have commented about it. Will
go away 1k or a month or so. Cheers

Is it possible to remove the cross members on the roof rack? Loosening the knob fully doesn't seem to release it.
#31 of 2771 weird noise at 60mph on LE 01 4x4 auto mode
Mar 19, 2001 (8:30 pm)
Hi, I'm new to this club. Got my pathfinder LE 4x4 with LSD with bridgestone tires dwellers. When the dial is on auto mode and speed at 60mph the wheels are heard with a "woo-woo" noise. Is this normal or not. However when put on 2wd the noise is not there. Is there a break in period or not. I am trying not to go over 60 mph for the first 1000 miles. These tires are for mud and snow rated tires. p255/65r-16. Hopefully someone can give me an answer

Make sure the 4 tires are inflated to the same pressure. If so, there may be a problem with one of the tires (those Bridgestones have a bad reputation).
#33 of 2771 Headlight lens cover....
Mar 20, 2001 (5:15 pm)
Has anyone replaced their headlight lens cover? Mine had a chip from a rock which has now turned into a hole. Water and condensation is beginning to discolor the inside housing.
The dealer wanted $130 for the lens and $200 for labor.
I figured I could do it myself, it looks rather easy. Is it? Any suggestions or helpful hints would be greatly appreciated.
