Nissan Navara 2008 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Nissan Navara 2008 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • How much will it cost to replace the clutch in my 2008 Nissan Navara?

    This cost of this will depend on a few things, Anthony, including which workshop you choose to carry out the work and what that workshop’s hourly labour rate is. That said, budget for around $2000 for the clutch kit and the time to fit it and you should be okay.

    The other thing to consider is whether this is a good time to replace the sometimes troublesome dual-mass flywheel with a simpler, more robust singe-mass unit. The cost should be about the same, but the single-mass replacement will be a stronger, more reliable unit over time. It’s the first modification a switched-on Navara owner will make if they intend to tow heavy loads with the vehicle.

  • Nissan Navara 2008: Where is the device for opening the bonnet?

    Opening the bonnet is a two-step process, Chris. First you need to locate the bonnet release catch which, on a 2008 Navara is located on the lower edge of the dashboard, just to the right of the steering column. It should be just under the button that controls the VDC (stability-control) program. It should be a little plastic catch that you pull towards you. When you do, you should feel the catch `give’ and see the bonnet spring up a few millimetres.

    Step two is to go around to the front of the car, and run your hand along in the space between the bonnet and the grille until you find the secondary catch which has to be pushed to one side to allow the bonnet to be lifted open. Be careful, though: Don’t let the bonnet fall on to your fingers and don’t shove your hand too far under the bonnet as there are hot components like the radiator in there as well. This second, safety catch is there in case the interior release gets bumped while the car is being driven. At which point the bonnet could fly open with interesting consequences.

    From memory, that model Navara also used a manual bonnet stay rather than gas struts to hold it open. So you’ll need to hold the bonnet open and manually put the stay in place to prevent the bonnet from falling on your head.

  • How can I stop my Nissan Navara 2008 from randomly shutting off?

    Randomly occurring problems are the most difficult to trace because they never happen when you want them to. You could have an auto electrician take a look at it for you; they might be better skilled to tackle the problem than a regular mechanic.

  • Nissan Navara 2008: Rusted roof

    You should have it checked to see if the rust has affected the structure of the car, as that would impact its roadworthiness and slash the resale value.
