Hi guys...

the bad news....
during a blizzard i went off the road, down a hill, thru a fence and shattered the pass. side fender...

the good news...

I m ok. and was able to drive it out with out a tow truck!! haha unreal... actually i was pretty impressed with the X... it wasn't an easy drive out but she did it....

SO...

i don t want to go through insurance cause i ll be paying for it for years, so i want to order the fender and do it myself.... anyone had to take one off? It looks fairly easy at first glance.. thats what scares me... ;) the fender is smashed (cheap plastic) as well ass the wheel well lining, but neither the door or front are damaged at all....

thoughts?

thanks

Glad you were not hurt!

It looks like a fairly easy job, especially if you have a service manual to show the steps. The replacement panel will probably have to be prepped and spray painted to match your vehicle colour by a bodyshop. I got my doubts that Nissan offers them pre-painted, but I could be wrong.

$279.43 for the fender... ouch. But it could have been worse of course....

But if your really think about it you should be glad they are plastic... no dents, no rust, and ALOT easier to replace :)

Less weight too, which means your exy can go faster ;) The new T31 xtrail has metal fenders and in addition to its overall length increase, it is bloody heavy as a tank, luckily they improved the engine a bit, otherwise it would have been slow as a trutle LOL :)
