Question about Nissan Iberia S.A. Nissan Qashqai The Survivor

1 Answer

I have a 2010 Nissan Qashqai Accenta... 25000 km's on the clock. Lately I've been having a lot of trouble getting my car into reverse gear... the dealer has checked the gearbox, and the clutch, but assures me it's all fine. Is this normal??? I constantly have to take my foot off the clutch and then try again... sometimes I have to move forward an inch or two before I can get it into gear. I love the car... but this is really starting to get annoying... any suggestions?

It is normal
the reverse gears are no synchro and are what is known as spur cut gears or straight cut gears
that means that on occasions they will hit on the ends of the gears they are engaging and so not mesh
letting the foot of the clutch allows one set of gears to move so allowing selection --you may have to do so a few times to get engagement
reverse is the problem gears and happens on all of manual gear boxes
It be a matter of you changing the time from clutch action to selecting gears so that a shaft is still moving as you select reverse

I have a Nissan qashqai 2010 n-tec and my battery went flat and I've lost the radio code how can I get it? The serial number on the radio is :3073437 and Device number is :7612830022

I'd try calling a place that installs car stereo's. Dealerships want you to come in so they can milk you for your cash. Car stereo stores usually want to help you quickly so they don't have to waste their time. It shouldn't cost you money just to get a code.

Anyone know where I can get a clock spring for 2007 Nissan Qashqai. Im in Ireland but if anyone can suggest a website in the UK Ill order from there. Problem is none of the steering wheel controls work on...

If there are junkyards in Ireland, that might be where you will find the clockspring you need. You may have to find something else in the Nissan line around that year.
