#479 of 485 4 door with 2 exposed handles....
May 12, 2011 (7:06 am)
Me again. Obsessing about finding the package or model of an older Frontier that has an extended cab, often referred to as a "King Cab". This truck style appears to have 2 doors, but actually has 4 because the 2 access door handles are hidden. This type of arrangement is called "suicide" doors. Do any of you happen to know the particular model of this Frontier?

You may be mistaken. I check back to 2001 and all the extended or "King cab" version of the Frontier came with an extended cab with only 2 doors. The Titan king cab has 4 doors but not the Frontier.
#481 of 485 Leaking roof/not the wind shield
Dec 05, 2011 (3:16 pm)
My 98 extended cab Frontier, has had a leaking roof for over a year now & getting worse. I bought is in 99 with 13K and it now has nearly 165k on it. Water drips on the steering wheel, only after driven 20/30 feet with turning or braking. Both floor matts catch dripping water and the driver's seat gets very wet. I checked the tail light at the edge of the roof and it's dry behind it. The only thing left... I think is possibly those vinyl strips at the edge of the top/roof just behind the tops of the 2 doors. Vinyl strips appear to be snug. Are there roof leak problems anyone has heard of on these trucks. I've had a windshield installer reseal the wind shield but to no avail, and he does not know where the water is coming in. I could sure use some good advice right about now, actually, some bad advice would beat a sharp stick in the eye. Please contact me at thmpickgmail.com

My 98 Frontier has problem with gears lightly scraping from time to time. Sometimes they are pretty bad then gets better for a while then back & forth. Does this usually stay this way a long time if not abused or will it continue to get worse quickly? The truck has been an absolute jewell but it seems there have been several things pop up suddenly. Would any of you opt to have it repaired or replaced with a quality rebuilt unit? Truck has 165,000 miles, uses no oil between changes and has had the usual, altonator, wiper motor, shocks, master cllinder, brakes... etc. So far a great truck. I had hoped to drive it to 300,000 miles and still would like for to try.

Does this Frontier have a roof rack or a sunroof ? You didn't mention these points either way.
If it has a roof rack, was it the factory - installed kind ?

How old is the clutch? I know the clutch is self-adjusting, but you may be at the end of the road if the clutch can't adjust itself due to wear.
That would mean that the clutch would no longer be able to stop the gears from moving when shifting .
