Glenn, how did you "adjust" the back door? Also did you have any problems with dust entering via the back door as we have dust marks after doing relativley minor gravel work. Was contemplating replacing rear door rubbers before going on a big trip. Any thoughts, Thanks

What year model do you have , my neighbour has an early one and Nissan reckoned it needed to have the windows up and aircon on to pressurise it .

I have a 2001 model , didnt let any dust in around oz but developed some serious rattles , had a look at the bottom of the large back door ( R/H ) and the gap wasnt the same all the way across, it got larger toward the centre .
Had a look at the top of the outside of the door and the gap looked even , looked at the lower r/h bottom latch and it looked like it had moved , there were punch marks where it should be , moved it back in and its like a bought one. plus lubed everything possible.

Pretty sure the top latch has adjustment as well also the l/h door .

Even the number plate has stopped rattling !
