Which one is right? Kris' service manual shows it to be D2R. Ekaxel says it should be D2S. The 2005 and 2006 Owners Manuals lists the D2S as the correct bulb. The 2005 Service Manual also lists the D2S.
We are going to have to be a lot more careful before we "hurt" somebody.
The Murano has changed in many small ways since it was introduced.
We need to make sure we know WHAT Murano we are advising on.
Not to be harsh, sincerely, but I have seen this happen a couple of times now.
Sooner or later somebody is going to spend some money or waste a lot of time on the wrong repair.
We need to qualify up front WHAT Murano people have, before we charge out there as the voice of authority.
It would sure make it easier if folks would put the pertinent info in their sig.
The more important question is what is the model year that PB125 is driving.
You hit the nail right on the head. It would make it a bit easier if all members included the year and model in their signature. Their location would also help, especially when someone asks about winter tires. Are they in New Jersey with 3" snow storms or Michigan with notorious lake-effect snow storms?
I know it is important what model year he is driving but it is puzzling me now. My SM says D2R (03), Nissan on-line Owners Manual for 05 and 06 say D2S. So I am puzzled now. Was there a change or the 03SM has an error...
Did some research on the net. This is what I found:
"Info on HID-D2R and HID-D2S
D2R bulbs were originally designed for
Mercedes-Benz. Consequently, D2R
bulbs and D2S bulbs (used initially by
BMW) feature subtle differences at the
base of the bulb for fitment purposes.
The differences primarily consist of a
cut-out and notch for fastening purposes
being located differently. In Addition to
the base varying slightly, D2R bulbs are
easily distinguished by ceramic paint
along the sides of the capsule.
It seems that the theory projector/reflector does not hold the water....unless somebody got it wrong again....
