#8 of 28 Have you ever tried "WD-40" for door rattle?
Mar 08, 2007 (10:10 pm)
Sorry to hear some of the problems with early Nissan Quest.
I got a 2004 Quest S model. The car runs great and never has any problem since November 2003. For me, Quest is powerful and easy to handle. The powertrain is wonderful, except I wish it got 5-speed on transmission instead of 4.
I had some rattle door problems even after the they applied the re-call. But someone mentioned WD-40 on this forum and I used couple of bottles to spray almost every where near the door, and under seat, etc. And it did a great job. I bought those bottles at Autozone, and it costs less than 2 bucks.
#9 of 28 doors freezing up
Mar 08, 2007 (10:35 pm)
Another thread here. This is our first winter with the 2006 Quest...it is surpizingly good in the snow, though as a new car I have been trying to keep it home when the white stuff flies. Anyway one problem we seem to have is the doors seem to ice up and freeze closed. Never had this bad an issue on other cars as the quest. you can usually pull them open with a little force but I am afraid of ripping the weatherstripping. Any thoughts or ideas from others in the frozen tundra?

I've had this problem mostly with the driver side sliding door (see my post above). The passenger side has gotten slightly frown but a few good tugs have freed it. The driver's side needs about 10 minutes with the heat on and pushing from inside. But my gasket needs to be replaced.
#11 of 28 I bent the door, now the car won't start!

I was backing up and the driver side door was left open. Next thing i knew, it caught on a fencepost and was bent backwards like it wasn't supposed to be. So now the door is bent on its hinges and it will not shut. My question is about the engine. For some reason when I bent the door the engine shut off, and now it will not start. The starter is working, so there is no battery problem, but the engine will not run. Could this have something to do with an "auto shut off mechanism" built into the car? If someone would offer advice on how i could get this thing started it wouldbe greatly appreciated.
#12 of 28 2007 Quest Automatic Door

Has anyone had a problem with their automatic doors rubbing causing the safety system to reverse the door. I have had this incident occur two seperate times....It appears on of the door brackets is rubbing on something as it closes. I put a little upward pressure on the the door step wherein the problem corrected. Please advise.

#15 of 28 Master Door switch for Mercury villager
Sep 01, 2007 (2:56 pm)
Is anyone else having hard time finding parts for your Mercury villager? My Master door switch broke some time ago and I can't find one to save my life. I would prefer to buy a used part as the new ones are a little expensive.

They run about $80 new last I checked on one for my Quest (wound up fixing it myself).
You could try an auto salvage yard if you can find on in your area - unless they have a whole door to sell, they may have pulled the switch out and have it sitting around for sale. I don't know of an internet parts source off-hand; sometimes they show up on eBay.
