I guess this may have already been discussed but here goes. My mate has a D40 Navarra and wants to take a 2nd spare on our trip apart from spending around $800 for an original alloy what options are there??

He also tells me the Common Rail injector has packed it in and is being replaced under warranty, he's done 97,000. Thats a good thing considering the money their quoting.

Cheers

My D40 STX with alloy wheels has a steel spare so why buy a alloy as a second spare?

Because that's all he was quoted, I suggested checking a steel spare, there still overpriced as far as I'm concerned. Back in 2005 I was quoted $240 odd for a steel spare for the Nissan Patrol at work by the local dealer. I don't imagine they've dropped in price.

Hi Sevro,

just curious to know how long will it take to have his injector replaced under warranty?

We are waiting in Geraldton WA on a part for our timing chain repairs (under warranty - 60.000 kms and 2 years old) and have been told anywhere from 3 to 7 weeks.
Ours is a D40 STX auto diesel.

Your trip may have to be potponed for a while.
Sorry, cant help with the 2nd spare problem and hope this isnt off topic too much.

Regards,

Heather G

Thats a bummer, they diagnosed the fault in the mates truck a week ago and booked him at the end of next week, it'll be 2 days in the shop. Luckily for him its not as bigger problem as yours.

Why not just take a tyre casing? Have it fitted if/when required.
