Bit of a follow up from my wheel wobble a month ago or so ... turned out to be siezed front brake caliper ... i stripped the best i could and cleaned/released it ... BUT has started sticking again SO i'm going to replace the caliper ... i've been quoted £90+vat for a new caliper which seems good to me what you's think? ... considering nissan want £360 ... Milners wanted £115+vat

This seems to be quite a common problem with the X Trail. Just had both of my front callipers replaced by a local garage, not my Nissan dealer.
Nissan Dealer wanted £300 plus fitting plus V.A.T. for each calliper. Local garage charged me just under £300 for both callipers (Inc fitting and V.A.T.)

I had a similar problem over the last month or so, kept coming and going, usually after 10-15 miles of driving. Now that the weather has "warmed" up a bit, problem has disappeared!

Might be worth just giving the pistons a quick clean ... also i used to have two fronteras lol and also seen the light lol ... mind saying that i wouldn't mind a swb 2.8 for a play toy! :thumbs:
