Quality is pretty decent, just make sure to keep those self-wash/pressure wands away from the lettering... I messed my last one up pretty good.
  2. Good call on filling it with water to find the leak Slart. I was planning on just sealing the entire housing and hoping it would be solve the problem, but tracking it down first is probably a good idea. And yes my grille is a little cockeyed, I'm hoping I should be able to get it out with how it is currently. If I snap any clips/fasteners I've got a good supply of zip-ties standing by lol.
  3. Thank you very much. I appreciate the level of detail you went into, this is the most info I've been able to find anywhere on the subject matter. Also thank you for the input on Lowe's potentially having replacement grill clips, I will definitely take a look there if I manage to snap any.
  4. Hey all, hopefully I don't look too dumb asking this question, I'm just reluctant to yank/force anything on this rig since all the plastic is so brittle and old. Over the winter I lost my passenger side headlight seal, and now that it's warming up outside it's really starting to build up some serious condensation. They're the factory OEM glass housings and they're basically flawless otherwise, so I would like to try and remove it and reseal it with some sort of silicone. Problem is getting to the bolts that hold in the headlight, and it looks like they're behind the grille. I can see the top 5 mounting points with small square plastic screws, and 2 small philips screws under each headlight. It also looks like there's another 3 mounting points across the bottom of the grille, but I can't see how to access it without removing the plastic cover that's on the top of the bumper as well. Can anyone confirm if this is correct? If so can someone shed some light on how to pull that plastic cover off the bumper? Thank you much
  5. Quite the resto thread!! Good luck on the project brother, it looks like you have a lot of dedication towards your Pathy. Definitely following this thread, excited to see what all you do to her!
  6. Little late to the thread here, but I'm suffering from what sounds like the same issue. Let me know if replacing the rear bushings gets your problem figured out! I'm starting to get mildly concerned about the amount of play and squeaking I get...
  7. Drove her home from work late last night, felt like I was boxing the cab with how bad the fuel smell was lmao. Checked her out this morning and discovered the clamps on the small hose between the fuel rails came loose again. Tightened them down and it seems we're good again for the time being. Damn this WD21 and the cold weather sometimes! Lol

      I just replaced the hose and the clamps. Problem solved

    2. Wacky_Pathy


      I may have the same issue lol. Do you get subtle gasoline fumes in your cab every now and then after you take off? It only seems to happen when its cold out haha.

  8. Getting a 404 error when I try to visit the link FYI...
  9. Damn, really well done. I need one of these!!
  10. Ahhh my bad, I didn't realize that was your issue haha. Yeah mine's a '92 and that worked for me, so I don't really have anything for ya then... Good luck on figuring it out though!
  11. When my tranny was doing this I used the diagnostic mode to help get an idea what it was doing. I don't remember what the culprit was but I did bookmark the service manual in case I would ever need to come back to it. If I remember correctly it's on page AT-39.
  12. It's not fair! I want to vote for all three! Lol
  13. Just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone on this forum for all the help that has been provided to myself and others, as of today I've finally figured out the fix to my ABS light which has been on for almost 10 years now. The Pathy has never looked/functioned this good!

    1. mjotrainbrain


      10 years, that's such a long time! Congrats on getting that figured out! The forum really is amazing.

  14. My man, thank you for the recommendation on checking under the head unit, you were right. Now I'm confused as to why it was there and not under my driver seat since I have a '92... oh well, I unplugged it and my light is FINALLY gone. Tested the brakes with and without the computer plugged in as well, they feel exactly the same lol. That computer has probably been shot for almost 10 years now. Thanks again, it's pure bliss seeing this dash all lit up at night without any other lights on that shouldn't be. One step closer!
  15. My god I think you might be right. I do remember when I pulled the dash apart to install my head unit and fix the light behind my climate controls that there was an electronic box mounted behind the plastic cover in front of the shifter like you said. I'll definitely be taking a look at it in the morning, you may have finally pointed me in the right direction. As far as the issue with your 4wd light goes, odds are it's just those switches. There's two of them, one is for when the t-case is in 4wd, and the other is for when it's in neutral. It's odd because I searched Nissan's website to see if I could find those part numbers for you, and I'm getting either duplicates of the same part with a different number, or the part was superseded with a newer replacement and I received old stock...? I don't have the part number for the 4wd switch, but I do have the part number for the neutral switch. It's labeled "SWITCH NEUTRAL" part #: 32005-ZD31A Here's the link to the switches I found on Nissan's part site, labeled "SWITCH-ASSY 4WD" and "TRANSFER NEUTRAL POSITION SWITCH." Good luck on figuring it out!
  16. I'm a bit late to this thread but wow! I had a similar problem as to what you are describing, but after swapping my MC all my issues seem to be resolved... Considering I just went down to my local O' Reily's and had them order a new one, I'm glad the one I got was the correct one and not for the drums as you said. My rear brakes definitely don't work near as well as my fronts, I'm assuming the ABS system is at fault for that... now if only I could find that damn computer lol.
  17. Well it looks like I was beaten by both the 4WD switch and the ABS light now. The new switch came in today, and upon reinstalling it worked for about 15-20 seconds, until the light started flickering again in 2HI. When I shift it into 4HI or 4LO now its a very solid and consistent brightness on the light on the dash, but it's loose in 2HI. Pulling out the switches and engaging them manually with my hands proved that the switches/electrical is functioning correctly, but something's either worn out or out of alignment inside my t-case now. Any thoughts? Cheers
  18. Knock off magnaflow huh... my exhaust has at least one solid leak and it's real rusty so it's gonna need some attention soon. Any chances you could shoot a video of what it sounds like? You've got me thinking...
  19. So thanks to the guys down at the Nissan dealership I ended up receiving a replacement neutral switch rather than a 4wd switch. I'm still not exactly sure what the neutral switch's function fully is, but it was just as busted as the 4wd switch. Here's what the top of the switch looked like where the rubber grommet went over. The other switch looks exactly the same, so now I've got that one ordered. It's a process, but I'm getting there
  20. The Pathy gave me an early birthday present!! Finally got all the leaks figured out underneath her and only got to enjoy that for 3 or 4 weeks. Looks like one of my cv joints is starting to leak, not bad, but definitely need to address it soon. Yay!!! *suicide*

    1. mjotrainbrain


      Ah, that sucks! There's always something. Oh well, could be a lot worse than just a CV!

    2. Bobsteriffic


      True. I hope nothing worse goes on her anytime soon tho, now I've done the rear end, the tranny, and the top end of the engine. She's becoming quite the money pit at the moment now that she's rolling 320K lol

    3. Bobsteriffic


      Update: CV-Axles swapped. Running real smooth and no leaks!

  21. No problem, I appreciate the input no matter what. I would much rather take my advice from other Pathy owners than a general mechanic/electrician!
  22. Hmmm... well unless this metal cover is underneath the carpeting as well, then I just don't think it's there anymore. I'm really at a loss with where they hid this computer, it doesn't look THAT small so I feel like it shouldn't be that hard to spot... oh well, the search continues.
  23. Good call on this, if I can find time later this week this is what I'll be attempting. Honestly the light has been on for so long that it doesn't really bother me that much, but after I get the 4WD light taken care of this will be the next thing I'm focusing on. Thanks again for the info, this stuff is priceless considering how hard it is to find info on these rigs sometimes.
  24. Yep, and the sad thing is I have a good idea where the wires go/came from, I just don't have the time to crawl under there and figure out where goes where... it's a bit daunting. Flipping the black box over revealed it was not the ABS computer, it must just be some other component to my aftermarket alarm system. I've checked all over her, under the passenger seat (only the ECU is there), the rear quarter panel compartments, under the rear seats, under the dash (driver and passenger side), and I can't find the computer anywhere... maybe that's why the light's on lol. According to my father (he worked alongside the person who installed most of this crap), they must've relocated the computer somewhere because the light wasn't on for many many years after the install, but I have no idea now. I'm at a loss with this damn light, it's honestly a running joke in the family now because of how long we've tried to get it fixed
