  1. @AndrewC Do you still need these? I've got a sun bleached pair you can have to $15 including USPS express mail.
  2. I can confirm (from personal experience) that first gen Xterra sunroofs are a direct replacement for the WD21 sunroof. That's what I'm running in my rig, since the weather stripping on the original completely deteriorated. The connectors for the sunshade are different than the original WD21 (screw-in versus a cam connector), so grab the shade if you can find one.
  3. I had planned to do the same thing, but it's not quite as simple as I hoped. There were changes to the metal ribs under the headliner, and the 2-doors don't have a bracket that the 4-door map lights attach to. As for the wiring, it runs up the left hand A pillar, then over the door and around the sunroof (at least one a 1990 2-door). I ended up giving up on the map lights, but wired an auto-dimming mirror and a Homelink transmitter from a Range Rover in that spot.
  4. Replaced the alternator after diagnosing it as the cause of the dead battery. It was only putting out 13 volts and looked like it was still the original. So got a new unit (not remanned), but now the Brake, Charge, and AT Oil Temp lights are staying on (they weren't on before). Checked the belt tension and tightened the hell out of it, but still have the lights. Any ideas?
  5. Wow - now this is a zombie thread! But it's a great one to have come back to life. 10 - Wild & Wicked - Shania Twain 09 - Route 66 - Depeche Mode 08 - Dracula (Matrix Remix) - Rob Zombie 07 - Castaway - Green Day 06 - My Sherona - The Knack 05 - Promised Land - Elvis Presley 04 - Lawless and Lulu - Buckcherry 03 - Sucker for Mystery - Danny Elfman 02 - Song 2 - Blur 01 - Come with me Now - Kongos
  6. WD21's didn't have headlight relays. There's a good write-up in the garage section about it: http://www.nissanpathfinders.net/forum/topic/4945-headlights-performing-poorly/page-1 Lots of folks here have installed the headlight relay mod, including me. It makes a huge difference.
  7. Had a no-start issue crop up last weekend (in the middle of moving). No click at all when I turned the key to try and start it after filling i with fuel. After checking all the cheap and easy stuff, it turned out to be the starter. Took 4 days to get the part, but it's back on the road again.
