To keep everything right i mean..lol. ..And depending on age both sides!, As the 4by increases in age you replace bits to stop it moaning and groaning, lateley clucosium tablets, Magnesium, cranberry,and a host of other things seem to be a necessity to keep me in good running condition lol.....Hows everyone else finds things?



Cheers Axle.

Axle! Bits are falling off me at a rapid rate but fortunately owning a 4.2 TDi Patrol, all that is necessary to keep it going is a toolkit consisting of a bobby pin and a few cotton buds!! Michael :))

Axle! I just need to clear up about the toolkit supplied by Nissan. They are a much coveted item by Patrol owners. Many a Patrol has been overlooked when a prospective buyer realises the Toolkit is missing. They are generally stolen out of Patrols in car yards by Landcruiser owners who like the finer things in life. Whats in the toolkit you ask.
1) A poorly designed pair of double jointed Pliers
2) A screwdriver that the shaft pulls out of the handle so is reversible from Phillips to Flat and constantly gets stuck in the handle, the pliers are handy to remove the shaft.
3) Two or three crappy open ended spanners sized up to about 12mm.
So!! I know you want one!!!! Michael

Mike,!......Age may weary them,..But L/C owners would never have the use for such a bagfull of embarrassing junk supplied by Nissan!

Only such tools would fit Nissan So i would have no use for them, Thanks for the generous thought, i really know you are so concerned!
;)))).

Cheers Axle.

Hate to tell you guys, but I reckon both Toyota and Nissan toolkits come out of the same factory in China. My new Toyota has the same tools as I had with my 1969 Corolla and the many Nissan vehicles we've owned!

Gday Phil! It makes you wonder why they bother with the 'Toolkit". Its pretty poor and you are probably correct, they are all the same. Michael.

Do you mean Glucosamine tablets by any chance?

Glucosamine is the little discs of black rubber stuff at either end of your shocks.

Cracked windscreen- use botox
Piitted paint work - use Oil of Ulan
ECU module faults - over indulgence the night before
Rust bubbles - skin cancer
Vehicle misfires - use Gaviscon and quickeze
Blocked fuel pipes - heart bypass

Wrecked tyres - new steel capped boots
Broken springs - Achilles tendon tear

Hi Axle ,


I look at it this way - cut out a bit of rust and a few lumps, put a few bits in ie knee replacement or lung transplant and we're err the vehicle is good to go for a another 5 - 10 years - lol.


cheers

Ah Axle

If over the years we had all spent as much money servicing ourselves as we have servicing our vehicles, then we would still be able to travel the wide brown land until we turn 100.

Cheers

I told you ages ago Axle that Vegetarians have the right idea cause it leaves so much more money over for buying bits for the car.
