2003 LE water pump drain plug

Recommended Posts

Plugs is not a bolt.....it is a plug.

How does someone go about removing this and is it threaded?

Would like to know if I am going to have to need to tap a hole.

Add some pictures...c8a257f145080d8cf6a0f9dd31d47b7d.jpg215b85a33512e9c7a2c2f99a9562288c.jpgc2a64ba0ebff0b559e9c72f752be8946.jpg

I don't know the 3.5, but that looks like a dowel pin to me.

Had the chance to chat with a technician at local Nissan, it was shared with me that some 2003 pathfinders had dowels installed vs plugs. Also, to prevent any coolant spillage into the time chain cover with this dowel install there is a drainage into oil pan. But this comes with the need to drain oil after job.
Interesting, because I did not find anything over the inter-web to suggest this was fact.....I will just have to keep my eyes opening and observe during the removal if it is a fact.
Will share afterward.....
Who doesn't want to remove a timing chain cover......the adventure.....cost....time....I should rethink this....hmmmm.

Moved to general R50 discussion area for better visibility, and because it isn't an established FAQ.
