Question about Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

Have a 2004 Pathfinder with cabin leakage. Noticed your solution on Internet. Same problem. Water funneling inside plastic trim to kick panel on left and soaking the floor. Which "drains" did you snake out with cord. Can ffind none. Re-seated all gaskets on door and windshield. No luck. Thanks very much.... Rod

    Thanks. I was referencing an earlier solution (8 mos ago) to Pathfinderr rain water leakage. The expert said he had a similar problem, which he solved by snaking trimmer cord through the drains to keep water from backing up in the headliner, and funneling down the door gasket to the floor. The headliner? My water is dripping into the plastic panel in the left windshield pillar. I've duct taped all the gasket seams in a process of elimination, and water still gets in somehow. Appreciate your response.

The drains are located on the firewall, they are for the AC evaporator and the air vents, to allow the discharge of the accumulated water. The drains have fitted over them a small black pipe that goes straight down.
They are accessible only from underneath so you will to crawl under the truck to clean them.
To remove the water from the cabin you must pry open the drain holes from the floor pan, they are covered by rubber plugs that are hidden by the carpets. Again, accessible only from underneath.

    That problem was about a leaking sunroof, not the windshield. In tyour case the problem is with the windshield gasket - it no longer seals. The trick described there will not work - the water can't reach those drains.
    The duct tape should be absolutely water tight for it to work - this never happens.

    To fix that you will need to insulate the gasket by pumping under it rubber mastic all around the circumference. If you can't find a tube with it at your local car parts shop and in a pinch, you could use even silicone caulking

How do I replace the cabin filter on a 2014 Nissan Pathfinder?

As i'm a Nissan tech, here is a shortcut to removing the cabin filter, open the glove box, you will see either side of the glove box (at the back) stoppers that stick out to prevent the glove box falling out, if you use a little force and push them inwards towards the inside of the glovebox then the glove box will fall out slightly but enough to access the 8mm bolt to the left behind the glove box that holds the trim in place, remove trim then remove cabin filters, two of them! Fit new filters and fit trim back with 8mm bolt, then push and close the glove box, it will go back into place! All done!!!

Mazda Bt50 cab leaks on drivers side

I recently purchased a 2008 BT50 dual cab then 2 days later we had 500mm of rain and of course it leaked :( I had about 80mm of water on the drivers side floor and 30mm on the passenger side floor. I stripped the interior out of the car and started hosing the outside and watching where it was coming in. I took all the windscreen surrounds off and the cowl panel off below the screen there was no water coming in from that area. I had taken the gutter seals off but left the door seals on so the water was running down around the outside of the seals (with the door shut) and out at the bottom. From inside near the drivers side kick panel I could see water coming through seams in the metal work and when I took the door seal rubber off the body on the car I could see water was getting in at the top of the door seal rubber going down the front inside edge of the rubber and getting in through the seam where the rubber push's onto the body of the car (first problem). I took all the door seal rubbers off and run a bead of non corrosive silicon inside the cavity and pushed them back on. It seemed to have fixed the problem I dried the carpet and put it back together..Two weeks later we got another 325mm of rain and it leaked again :( not near as bad this time. Looking at the bottom of the door where the door trim meets the door I could see water coming from behind the trim and then into the car. I took the door trims off and could see water gets in when the window is up (all cars do) and is supposed to run out the drain holes in the bottom of the door but the water was dripping and splashing up to the back side of the door trim against the sheet of plastic that is supposed to seal against the door with the black mastic (it doesn't) and running straight into the car. I cut some plastic and siliconed them onto each opening on the inside of the door frame and then put the factory piece of plastic on as well (properley this time) as a backup.
So far so good.

Anywhere to find a breakdown to change the door handle that broke off on a 94 pathfinder?

Very easy to do...I have a 1990 and they are interchangeable....88-94: Door Panel
  1. Fully lower the door glass.
  2. Remove the arm rest, door lock knob and inside door handle escutcheon.
  3. For vehicles with manual windows, remove the regulator handle which is retained by a spring clip.
  4. Gently pry the door panel away from the door.
Interior side and floor trim removal procedures-Pathfinder

Remove the lock button first before removing the door panel

Remove the plug to gain access to door panel retaining screws

Remove the trim cover

Remove the door handle trim

Remove the power window switch trim panel

After loosening the power window switch trim panel, disengage the electrical connection

Remove all the necessary trim panels before removing the door panel clips

View of the door panel retaining clip-clip must be installed in the hole straight

Make sure the watershield plastic is in place before installing the door panel

Installation is the reverse of removal.
