    Anyone replaced entire front panel inc cross member? How big a job?

    Have to confess just reading lowrider's (and your) point back and never realised there was a jacking point on the cross member. Have always used the big lump of metal at the back of the wishbone. Looked at your blog ... good reading. You did the lower X member not the whole panel I think. But...

    Anyone replaced entire front panel inc cross member? How big a job?

    That's really helpful stuff Liam, amazing how a pic can paint a lot of words. Cheers for the pictures, they explain the spot weld positions really well. Just a quick question ... in the third photo, there's what looks like a plastic cover hanging loose that would go across the cross member. Is...

    Anyone replaced entire front panel inc cross member? How big a job?

    Yeah that's definitely worth to know ... many thanks for explaining. Have to say I would have crashed on with that without understanding that. Not sure if it's a Nissan part or OEM. Will be a while before it's here but will take a look and report back Cheers

    Anyone replaced entire front panel inc cross member? How big a job?

    Thanks for the steer lowrider. Yes I considered the trim down and yet (originally) thought the one piece panel to theoretically be a stronger option. But you think not the case? Worth to consider in and is exactly the sort of thing to have an understanding of before starting such a job. I've...

    Anyone replaced entire front panel inc cross member? How big a job?

    Hi Liam, yeah would very much like to give that a read if you have time to find. It passed MOT Saturday so I have a year to plan for the work :-) But have to say every time one of you guys makes one of these guides, it genuinely does make it way less work for those us a bit more 'part time'...

    Running like a dream then no start at Aldi!!! :-) Help Please

    Yeah I cannot knock that approach Plmval ... I will reflect on that next time I'm lying underneath ours in the cold and rain with a 13mm socket and a bolt sheers! :-) Luckily it's Summer and work on it seems "almost" fun recent days. How quick we forget the misery :-) In our case, I think we...

    Anyone replaced entire front panel inc cross member? How big a job?

    Morning all. Amazing, it passed MOT today with just an advisory on tyre!!! Happy days. That said the cross member is definitely for it's maker by next years happy event. Bought an entire new front panel of ebay for £30. .... is the entire panel including lower cross member, slam panel, that...

    Running like a dream then no start at Aldi!!! :-) Help Please

    Thanks for the suggestion SR. Is a good point ... the car got stolen maybe 5 years back and all the locks were wrenched including the ignition. I replaced with an equally old one and worn one and it's hung together since then but of course having replaced all the locks via breaker parts....we...

    Running like a dream then no start at Aldi!!! :-) Help Please

    Tend to agree on the male jewelry but we all have purchase weaknesses. :-) ... it was more the distance and nature of the journey that causing me to do the due diligence (OTT) thing. Got a nice little boot full of useful repair/support gear that I hope also never gets used. In fairness it never...

    Running like a dream then no start at Aldi!!! :-) Help Please

    Even weirder ... linked the red and black feeds via jump leads to a known good battery and guess what? Yes it starts perfectly. And yet the Halfords battery (one off car) when connected to the charger reads FULL and doesn't charge! And the little viewing window on the battery reads green which...
