  1. Could someone post a simple color coded driver side mirror wiring diagram for a 2000 Pathy SE? Purchased a replacement mirror from Rockauto. Wiring connector from Rockauto is a one piece connector,  but existing are two connectors in the door. Thanks for the help. MTG

  2. Rockauto and Partsgeek had both listed. The cover with the cutouts are out of stock and only the cover w/o the cutouts are available and somewhat cheaper. Hence my question whether someone has modified the cover without the cutouts. Had not looked at fleabay. MTG

  3. Need to replace my rear bumper cover on my 2000 Pathfinder SE with spare tire under vehicle. Have been looking at various parts house that offer these covers. Shows both with and without cutouts for rod to drop spare tire. Both look the same other than the cut out holes. Has anyone purchased the cover without the holes and merely modified it for the rod access? Are there any other real differences in these two beyond the cut out holes? Thanks for the input. MTG

  4. I looked at a pair of add of overload add on springs on Summit that are slightly larger than the KYB shocks on my Pathfinder. The out side dimensions are just 3”. Should work as I am only looking for additional support when towing my 19’ travel trailer. BTW, only tow it short distance as 3.3L doesn’t do well over long distance. MTG

  5. NZ members I have a question. Not to take over this thread. Has your country opened up as yet. 

    BTW, my R50 has 265/70R16 tires mounted on the 16” wheels. It did some rubbing of the front bumper and wheel well liners until I did some trimming. Now, nothing. 

    We had a trip planned to NZ this past June but Covid kept us at home here in Montana. Hopefully will be able to travel to NZ in the future. Stay safe. MTG

  6. Installed new Moog springs this AM. Checked universal joints, all good. Replaced fuel filter. No problems. This 2000 Pathfinder is so nice to work on as there is no rust, very little dirt and all bolts and nuts came off so easily. There is no visablevsag and the ride is nice and firm. 

    Now, I am considering Airlift 1000 airbags. Watched a video and installation seems simple. Whereas I do very little towing I may wait some time to install. Thanks all for the input. MTG

  7. Ordered the Moog rear springs in lieu of the airbags as I do very little towing with my Pathfinder. The only towing would be very short hauls. Do not care for airbags as had them on my 2000 F250 and were always a pain. The Moog springs should be sufficient. Thanks for the help. MTG

  8. I realize that this topic has been discussed to great ends but need to ask. My 2000 Pathfinder 4x4 has a bit of sag in the rear springs, not real bad but probably OEM springs. I have decided that I do not really want a lift but more load support. Having said this, what replacement rear springs will give me at most a 1/2” lift to bring it up and support a bit more load. I do plan to tow a 10’ utility trailer on occasion. Also, where to purchase at best price. Thanks for the input and patience. MTG


  9. This stay at home ruling by MT governor Steve Bullock can be truly boring AND a bit too crazy for me. Therefore, going out to my shop. Turning on the radio. Going to remove the factory running boards, mud flaps and fender flares. Then commence to sanding all plus the lower part of each side in preparation to coat with truck bed coating. Does it need this? NO. Do I want this? Yes. Need has nothing to do with want. I want it this way to defend against rock chips, cow crap, mud and various other little gremlins that are throw around when off-roading. Am I nuts???? Yep! But I like the coverage and the way it looks. Have done this to other rigs and has held up great. Who knows what little problems I may come across during this process? Good time to be working on my 2000 Pathfinder. 

    Stay busy and please be safe. Keep your family safe. MTG
