Man sorry to hear about your dealer issues, but my dealer has bee GREAT. They even pointed some stuff out for me before my 3yr/36k mile expired. You just need to find a good service department. Good luck with everything.
Right above the pedal is a nut, I think it is 10mm. Just tighten the nut until your brake is where you want it.CoachBoone said:I can't believe I didn't notice my driver door before I got it home, too. Mine was out of alignment, and practically hit the pillar before latching. The did fix it but it still kind of shudders when I close it.
Can anyone tell me how to adjust the parking brake? Mine is pretty weak too.
Oh please don't tell me it's that easy!?!?!?!?! I have asked them to check that blasted thing twice now!!!!! :flame:helomech said:Right above the pedal is a nut, I think it is 10mm. Just tighten the nut until your brake is where you want it.
Adjusting it is that easy. Just look right above the pedal, I can't remember if it is in front of or behind the pedal arm or not, but it is real easy to do.roy365 said:Oh please don't tell me it's that easy!?!?!?!?! I have asked them to check that blasted thing twice now!!!!! :flame:
Leadsled124 said:Ok i finally took my truck into the dealer for some minor things to do since i would be outta town working for a few weeks. I absolutly HATE dealerships and their incompetent techs who know less than a 3rd grader about cars and trucks.
I have had horrible experience @ 1st Nissan in Simi Valley where i BOUGHT my truck and will not return. they want to charge me before they even look at it.
So i decided to go to the Nissan Of Thousand oaks dealership, which is actuall a Nissan-GMC dealership located in westlake village. These homos are douches too!!!
I had a few minor things adressed, that i could do myself but i figured use my warrenty since i can.
BTW I have an 06 bouught NEW with 24 miles on it last dec 06. So its one year old EXACTLY and i have 28,000 miles almost (yea drive alot 4 work).
--Ok issue one.... Parking brake is useless... I adjusted the 10mm at the pedal to get a little but still pretty useless. They claimed they need $50 to START looking at it cause it doesnt fall in the 1 year 12k miles period. (WTF?!) So i said dont touch it ill do it myself.
-- Issue 2 ... Front door gap is off and door doesnt latch fully. This one may have been somone opening it to fast or wind grabbing it but i am not 100% sure. Basically a SIMPLE adjustment. BTW i take tremendously good care of my trucks maintanence and so on., and i usually do anything myself w/o bothering the dealer such as squeeks rattles alignment cams etc.
They looked at it and said no. I have never touched the fender or door adjustment. There is some metal cut and trimmed for the ramair by the grill that in no way or form is close to the fender or harming it. Its been fine for 24000 miles.
Im not even going to list anymore you see where its going. Basically i would like advise on how to take these a-holes down. Nissan needs to know about these bastards. Their lucky im still stuck in Vegas working and a buddy is picking up my truck or i would have rung the guys neck.
Once again THIS KIND OF CRAP is why i will be continuinng to do my own work and maintenance. (oh btw the last time they had my truck was @ 3k miles for the free oil change where they didnt change the oil filter and broke a lug nut thread off while checking somthing i asked for. they said they didnt do it and it was wear and tear)
