    Is a bumper for a 1998 200sx/Sentra compatible with my 1997?
    So my front bumper is broken on my 97 200sx and I found an aftermarket bumper that I really liked but it's for a 1998 200sx. Will that bumper work for me? I know that they changed the body style slightly in between those years. Thanks!

      Worn blower motor draws a higher amperage, the blower motor resistor couldn't support.

      Do I need to replace blower motor?
      12/24/2014 CVO
      Yes, the blower motor winding was increasing the resistance over the time and caused it the problem.

      Yes-somehow you disturbed the SRS System
      maybe you had the battery still connected

      Try clearing the MIL Lamp with a code reader

      If you didn't do anything to cause a fault then
      you should be okey

      If it comes back check your work-seat belt etc

    Why does the heater not working when idling but works when driving at higher speeds?
    It blows cool air but the faster you drive the hotter it gets

      Check for air in the cooling system this is usually caused by a leak or if some one had the system opened up and did not purge the air from the system. Using a vacuum fill tool is the best way to fill the system and purge air . If there is no air in the cooling system than you may be dealing with a lack of coolant flow to the heater core ie.. restricted heater core, radiator, This car may have a heater pump on the drivers side of the engine compartment to help with the flow of coolant. I believe the pump will operate when set to max heating.

      1. Raise window to the full “up”
      position. Support glass with
      cloth-backed (duct) tape. If
      window cannot be raised
      and is in a partially down
      position, it must be supported
      to keep it from falling into
      the window well during
      motor removal.
      2. Disconnect the ground cable
      from the battery.
      3. Remove door trim panel and
      moisture barrier.
      4. Remove bolts or rivets
      securing regulator/motor
      assembly to inner door panel.
      To remove rivets, punch out
      center pins. Then drill out
      the rivets using the
      appropriate bit.
      NOTE: Some models have
      locating dimples in front inner
      door panels to locate
      motor-to-regulator attaching
      bolts. Use a 3/4” hole saw to
      drill three holes at dimples.
      Then remove attaching bolts.
      5. Disconnect motor electrical
      6. Move regulator assembly
      rearward and disengage
      rollers from sash channel, if
      so equipped.
      7. Remove regulator assembly
      through access panel in door.
      8. Important! Before removing
      the motor from the regulator,
      secure the sector gear so it
      can’t move. Injury can result
      if the sector gear is not
      locked into position. To do
      this, drill a 1/4” or 3/8” hole
      through the backplate and
      gear. Install a 1/4” or 3/8”
      bolt and nut to lock sector
      gear in place. DO NOT drill
      hole closer than 13mm (1/2”)
      to the edge of sector gear or
      9. Remove motor to regulator
      attaching screws or rivets.
      Use a 3/16” drill bit to drill
      out rivets ( if equipped).
      10. Separate motor from
      NOTE: If the original window
      lift motor has a bracket, remove
      it by slightly loosening throughbolts.
      Transfer the bracket to
      the replacement motor.

      1. If motor is supplied without
      a gear, remove gear from old
      motor and inspect for
      chipped teeth or cracks.
      If damaged, replace the gear.
      2. If the gear is good, transfer it
      to the replacement motor.
      1. Install motor to regulator
      using nuts and bolts supplied
      with motor or 3/16” rivets.
      Make sure motor pinion gear
      teeth mesh with sector gear
      2. Remove sheet metal screw or
      bolt and nut used to lock
      sector gear in place ONLY
      after motor is installed to

      3. Position regulator assembly
      through rear access hole into
      door inner panel.
      4. Connect electrical lead to
      motor before moving regulator
      assembly to mounting
      NOTE: Use wire colors for reference
      to determine correct
      harness plug/motor lead connection.
      5. Install lift arm roller into
      glass sash channel, if so
      6. Bolt or rivet regulator assembly
      to door inner panel.
      7. Reconnect battery ground
      8. Remove tape or window
      securing wedges.
      9. Run window up and down
      several times to make sure
      gear teeth are meshing and
      motor is working properly.
      NOTE: If the motor runs backwards,
      unplug and reverse the
      motor electrical connector.
      10.Install moisture barrier and
      trim panel ( if equipped).
      If window lift does not work,
      refer to the troubleshooting

    Need to replace my lift gate hydraulics
    My Pathfinder's liftgate closes if I put it up. The hydraulics that support it are completely shot and need replacing. What do I need? I'm going to be doing this myself but am unsure exactly what to get for this.
