Fuel filler tube RECALL

I dropped my Xtrail off at the dealer to have the recall done. They need the vehicle for 2 days. The service advisor told me they have to remove the rear suspension and then the fuel tank to replace the filler tube. This sounds like a lot of work. I am hoping they don't damage any of the components. It's an older car with almost 200,000 km so I imagine there's a possibility something could happen. Has anybody had this recall done? I wonder what will happen if something is damaged. Will Nissan have to cover it? I hope this doesn't turn in to a headache.

Seems quite a few people have had it replaced. See this thread

http://www.nissanforums.com/x-trail/...ller-neck.html

Its now a generalized recall. Ours wasn't originally included back in 2014, but got a letter last week to have it checked and called Nissan Canada and our vin is now included. I will have to check the service manual to see what all is involved in replacing it.

Haven't had a problem with ours (yet) , no leaks, no check engine light, so I am not in a huge rush. I will check tomorrow and report back what is involved-- unless of course someone else who had it done can chime in and provide the info.

Not sure if the fuel tank needs to be completely dropped, but it has to be drained, lowered and tilted a bit and they do have to undo some rear suspension components, possibly a bit of exhaust and the propeller shaft for awd versions. I would say that yes there is a possibility of some collateral damage. Please let us know the outcome of yours getting fixed. I think I will wait a bit and maybe check how many the dealer has done before sending mine in. I plan to wait at least until springtime, and maybe longer.

On mine, the rear assembly came all out.
In 10 years i never dropped a single drop of gas due to over flow.
After the recall service my rear bumper had dried gas and below the gas cap
You can see the results here.
I ve complained through their survey after service and told them to never bother me again for promotions of any kind.

The gas ate through the paint? Not too good. I understand your being pissed off. Any sign of failure on yours before you had it done?

Got my Xtrail back earlier then estimated with no issues.

No failure, i went there just to stay on safe side.
My driveway is newly paved and it sleeps in the garage inside of the house. I don't want any gas leaks inside.
