I got tired of seeing a door without a panel. I ended up grabbing a burgandy panel from a 95 from a Pathfinder same one that I got the seats from.
It was a tight fit at the mirror but it's on there.

The "center cap" looks right. It goes on before the lugs.

Default Need help identifying connector and vac hose

Two vacuum hoses coming out of black cannister. One connects to air filter box the other one was loose.

I did notice there was an EGR port that didn't have a vacuum line connected does it go there?


Also to the left of the black cannister there is a connector coming out of the wiring harness that looks like it was connected to something that was removed from the engine bay. Notice the two screw holes? Any help would be appreciated

Many times I've seen the cruise control in that area. (back, left side on the V6) It's also vacuum controlled.

Default Intake Air temp sensor

The loose connector in the engine bay was ripped off the air temp sensor under the air cleaner housing

Default Bed was loose

I noticed the bed bouncing around. All the bed bolts were loose especially the front drivers side corner. I tighten the bolts and a week later it was bouncing around again.

The bolt in the front corner was stripped. The bed was removed and the bed hole did not line up correctly with the frame. I presume that bolt was stripped when it was tighten.

I didn't feel like going to the junk yard so I ordered one from the dealer.
The bolt has a welded bracket at the top so it doesn't spin when you're tightening it. There is no room on top to hold it from spinning. It was 12.00.

I guess the good thing is that the fuel pump was replaced

Default Door panel

I installed the passenger side door panel from the 95 Pathfinder. The color and design match the only difference is the middle part of it is cloth.

Finding a matching panel in decent shape is pretty tough. But it sure beats having no panel at all.

The Pathfinder panel has more foam at the top so it was a little tougher to install especially at the mirror side. I do like the way the speaker cover is fastened to the panel compared to the hardbody
