  1. battery maintenance - need advice

    3rd Gen (2015+)
    In an attempt to avoid the dealer for simpler things, I'd like to clean some acid buildup on the top of the battery. I was checking around as to proper precautions, if any, when removing the battery terminals and power to the ECM and I'm getting a variety of answers such as the following. I...
  2. Mud guard push clip

    General Discussions
    I found a replacement one at Lowes in their parts bin. Just match the diameter you need. Not sure if it was even for a Nissan.
  3. AC was making a loud noise and bad smell

    3rd Gen (2015+)
    Have fun getting the filter out and putting a new one in. WORST design ever for something that should be a 2 min job.
  4. Nav System Glare

    3rd Gen (2015+)
    Nice fix! Will this device also be carried at Target stores? Now, will they recognize your screen name or are you going to give us your real name to obtain this device? Thanks! :)
  5. downshifting gen3

    3rd Gen (2015+)
    All.. thanks for the clarifications as well as your thoughts on the topic!
  6. downshifting gen3

    3rd Gen (2015+)
    Holger, To clarify, are you disagreeing with the posters attitude about leasing or implying that downshifting in manual mode should not be done because it causes some type of damage? Thanks
  7. downshifting gen3

    3rd Gen (2015+)
    I have a 2016 and have a question related to the CVT. When slowing down prior to stopping or wanting to slow down when driving on a snowcovered road, can the trans be moved to manual mode and then downshifted to use the engine/trans for braking? Would this do any damage to the CVT i.e...
  8. MOD: Sequential side view mirror LEDs

    3rd Gen (2015+)
    I believe in flasher mode, the front turning lights as well as both mirror lights flash. In the video when he does the walk around, the passenger side is flashing but is much less brighter than the drivers side. So from far away it appears that it is just the left turn light.
  9. 2016 Murano missing AWD-lock botton

    3rd Gen (2015+)
    I thought the AWD was intuitive so that, if needed on snow covered roads for example, it would switch to AWD at any speed. AWD isnt only working up to 15 mph, is it?
  10. Flaps in front of rear wheels

    3rd Gen (2015+)
    If you dont want to go to the dealer or buy from Amazon, I found ones that did work at Lowes in their automotive trim drawer. One of my clips was missing also, probably from car wash or snow.
  11. Bleeding Brakes

    3rd Gen (2015+)
    Maxfan, You sure there are no issues with your braking system to have brake fluid that looks like that at 15K miles? I recently changed the brake fluid on my 71 Mustang after it being in there for 5 years and it looked almost the same. Of course, I kind of expected it since the brake parts are...
  12. Aftermarket remote start / starter

    3rd Gen (2015+)
    So, how does this differ from the factory remote starter? Dont all 3rd gens come with that... or not?
  13. Engine bonnet sun glare

    3rd Gen (2015+)
    So, ab16, does the addition of the plasti-dip make any difference with the glare? Please report back after you have driven with it a while. thanks!
  14. Hitch for 2016 for Bike Rack

    3rd Gen (2015+)
    Is a trailer type hitch the only type that works on the Murano? It seems to be the way everyone is going. I have a Saris bike rack that I used on an Xterra that is the type where the straps fastened over the hatch top and bottom and it rested against the back window. Will that type of bike...
  15. Just got into in an accident...

    3rd Gen (2015+)
    I think I saw this self repair in a movie called Christine. Your car doesnt seem possessed or anything, does it? Does the radio station only play one channel and come on by itself??
