Re: repack / replace front bearing grease

30,000km? used to be 40,000km on earlier models. If sufficient quantity and quality of grease is used and even a dash of Nulon G70 the bearings will last much longer and using that method I do mine at longer intervals. Originally they don't have an over abundance of grease. The more important issue ...

Re: Front wheel hub regrease

It seems anyone who can recognize a wheel bearing can do the job. He didn't evenly undo the drive plate on the hub, just rattled off in a rotary pattern. Hope he never works on anything which requires even removal or reassembly. The grease seemed quite new and unused. I wonder why Nic has the bearin...

Re: HELLO From Ga

G'day Danno I thought what a lovely lady looking for a partner. Just not interested that far away. Yes, George Soros and Bill Gates are totally in charge now. I wonder when Biden's "accident" is going to happen? He can't keep getting instructions through the hearing aid/earpiece forever, that must b...

Re: HELLO From Ga

Hello Grace,
Good to have some people from USA on the site. Unfortunate you now have the communist George Soros as President though. A master puppeteer, he pulls the strings and people dance.

Cheers

Re: 09 Temp guage reading and TPM warning

I have a 2011 Dmax and the temp gauge runs slightly over the midway point. If yours runs 3/4 then either the thermostat is a hotter thermostat or there is a restriction to airflow or cooling water flow issue. If you place the vehicle under more load the temp may rise slightly IF the thermostat is th...

Re: Work Lights

If for mirrors or for headlight adjusting power supply I would be finding which fuse and it's rating if using it to power other items. The wires aint thick. If light duty and LEDS are tolerant to voltage drop over the distance all maybe ok. Personally, I would run a separately fused power wire from ...

Re: 2020 D Max Steering is dangerous

If you fit a small 12v relay to momentarily bridge the contacts/pins of the switch which turns the system OFF when at startup. the system will be OFF. To set the relay ON time, fit an electrolytic capacitor to the positive side and other side of the cap to negative. When starting, the relay gets a s...

Re: Steering wheel control wires

I haven't changed one with steering controls, but logic, if applied can provide positive results. IF, yes IF, you open the case of the old one you may find the various pins of connectors are identifiable by code or names on circuit board. Also, logic means if most pins are for aerial or speakers or ...

Re: 4jj1 Welch plugs!

The digital manual shows only a side view of the three holes in the block. No detail or info of welch plugs. However, It would seem normal for all three to have a cup welch in there with sealant, to close the holes. I presume there is NO step lip for a dish welch plug to expand on. Since the oil coo...
