  3. The dropbox link didnt work, unfortunately. Can you email or send me a link?
  4. Yep, PB took a big chunk out of forums, and FB was well-situated to pick up the pieces. The one thing that Farcebook has over forums (apart from the fact that people are already on their platform) is the ease of posting pictures. Drag, drop, done. Here, it's a pain in the ass involving external hosting that generally either isn't supposed to be used for this purpose or requires a paid subscription, and either way they may go dark at any time. (Except Tapatalk, I guess--I haven't tried that but seem to remember hearing it has some kind of image hosting built in?) A database of knowledge isn't as useful when half the pictures are greyed out. I know hosting pictures takes a ton of room, and costs money, and would require constant growth (or pruning, and who's gonna go back and delete their junk photos), but another forum I lurk on for my dad's truck makes it work, and is still very much alive. (It's also covering a much more popular vehicle, so, our mileage may vary.)
  5. Came out pretty great. Needs a few little things like caps for the open ends, maybe some extra support in the center. I used 3/8ths bar stock for the center uprights so it should be strong enough. I also did the tubing on the outside of the bumper so that it would have more surface area in contact to make it stronger and so that it would protect the fog lights as well. And I made sure to go wide enough on the corners to keep the original turn signals visible from the front but not too wide that it sticks out excessively. The headlight sections more or less follow the angles of the bumper
  6. Years ago the FB group was started mainly for the really active members to have a place to chat. Then as facebook groups evolved more people joined. A few years ago when photobucket pulled their bull@!*% that was the real nail in the coffin for forums. Now that people are starting to realize how evil FB is, maybe they will come back here.
  7. Yesterday
  8. Tubing just arrived, so I’ll see what I can do with it tonight. A few days ago I spent some time playing around with random scrap steel to get a decent format and work out the necessary dimensions, and I’ve left it on until now so I could have a map for when the finalized piece goes on. After that’s done I’ll start working out a plan for a new roof basket. I also ordered a smittybilt air compressor so I’ll be able to have onboard air. Not sure yet if I want to hardwire it and give it a permanent spot on the rig. I tried to hit the Balanced Rock Road today to get to a camping spot, but we ran into a closed gate on the way there. Im guessing it was due to the recent snow, even though it was less than 6 inches deep. Oh well, we ended up just stopping and hiking a random trail with our new furry friend. We’ll save the wheeling and camping for later in the spring
  9. Greetings to my pathfinder colleagues 👋🏻

  10. That’s how I poked holes in the slider with a Flathead... had it in the locked position and started pushing, but thanks for replying
  11. Honestly, the quality of the information is self-evident. Anybody who shuns the forum over FB clearly has chronic judgement issues. I’m not particularly mechanical but I can recognize a careful & thorough thought process. It’s a shame NPORA allows the FB to have the same name - it would be fine if it were different.
  12. Could also be a strut top bearing. Turn the engine off, work the steering manually (key on so it doesn't lock itself), and see if you still hear the noise. If rust is an issue in your area/on your truck, inspect your strut towers as well.

  14. Common sense tells you where it's at. In line with the other 2. I've never had any problems with the #6 luck I guess. More problems trying to get the wire off than getting the plug out. Sent from my SM-S367VL using Tapatalk
  15. EL-38 of the '03 manual shows how to get those apart, but not how to put them together again. Looks like to get them apart, you push the slider forward (towards the TPS). From that I'd guess that you'd stick it back together with the slider still all the way forward, and the slider would then return on its own to the locked position as the connector seated. Maybe having the slider fully forward lifts the springs that are getting in your way? I didn't even know those connectors were a thing, so that's all I've got. Good luck!
  16. Sounds like a ps pump Sent from my Pathfinder
  17. The notch on the firewall is a guide to reach the spark plug. You just need a couple extensions and swivel. It’s actually pretty easy. Sent from my Pathfinder
  18. Thats too much money invested for me to destroy it on every outing lol
  19. Good video and good point about holding the extension straight. My extension is a tad longer so I don't need to use a swiveling ratchet.
  20. 2003 VQ35DE with Drive by Wire I took off my intake for regular maintenance, as well as changing spark plugs. To clear room, I disconnected the TPS sensor on the Throttle body from its harness. Last week i started putting stuff together, and the TPS harness won't go onto the TPS plug. I need insight on whether the harness is broken, damaged, or if my methods are inadequate. But first pictures, so that you all will have a better idea of what I'm talking about. This is the Harness: This is the plug on the TPS: Here's what I know so far: The springs (you can see their white/clear tops in the top section of the harness) are contacting the guides on the TPS (the two guides with the rectangle between them in the last picture). I cannot push the springs far enough out of the way to change this. Even after lubricating the springs and TPS plug, I can't get the springs to slide past the guide. This contact causes the sliding/locking mechanism on the backside of the harness to get pushed back when sliding the harness onto the TPS plug. Or, if you slide the locking mechanism all the way back, put the harness on the TPS plug, and then try and push the locking mechanism all the way forward, the TPS plug gets pushed off the harness. It was my initial assumption that the springs are supposed to slide past the guides, but I'm not super confident on that. So, lets say the springs are supposed to contact and push against the guides. If that's the case, then fine. I'll push harder, but I've already poked holes in backside of the sliding mechanism from pushing with a flathead screwdriver. If I take the springs out of the harness, it doesn't lock onto the TPS plug with any force other than the friction between the two surfaces. I can pull the harness off without touching locking/sliding mechanism on the backside of the harness. The harness appears to be in working shape and not damaged, nor do I recall any snapping noises when I pulled it off the TPS plug last week. When just inspecting the harness, if I push the locking mechanism all the way forward, it clicks into place, seeming to suggest that it works. Any insight is greatly appreciated, as my truck has now been sitting in the driveway for a week. I'd have to tow it to a shop or drive it to one with the TPS harness shoddily connected, and I'm not sure what a shop would do or tell me to do at this point.
  21. I have a 2004 Pathfinder that makes a low rumble noise when turning the wheel from stand still or very low speed. The front two wheels have experienced a 3/4 foot drop a couple days ago. Everything's stock, power steering fluid is fine. Any thoughts?
  22. Last week
  23. My tool kit does indeed come with these spark plug pullers or what ever you would call them there are 2 of them in the kit
  24. Here's my video on 3.3 #6 plug removal. Hope this helps. Sent from my SM-S367VL using Tapatalk
