Hello Umbongo,

That looks a tidy job, you'll be pleased it's sorted before winter starts. :thumbs:

Best wishes, John
Hi John, yes I'm glad I caught it in time before ir damaged the rotor. I'll have to tackle the struts dust boots soon as they're all split, but it's not an M.O.T. fail thankfully and I'll have to get underneath in the spring and deal with the rust like your intending to do, I think KILVY has done his already.


I think they are called 'bound bumpers ' , and good luck in getting them !
I think only from Nissan dealer.

Hi WAK, That's just Nissan's fancy name for them and that's why they charge so much for them, I won't pay stupid prices for Dust bump stops from Nissan I've already found a good replacement from the link below and better quality too.
Nissan's price for (Bound bumpers) each.
Front Part No:54040-4U000 £44.65 + VAT two per vehicle
Back Part No:55240-8H500 £46.55 + VAT two per vehicle
made in China for £5

I have recently been hearing a noise coming from the front brakes - like the discs are slightly warped as the noise isn't constant - under braking. I wonder if they are distorting/warping (the set I had changed last year were warped) because the pistons aren't working on both sides due to a faulty caliper? A how to would be good, seen some replacement (remanufactured) calipers on eBay for around £70 a side... is that reasonable, what's your thoughts on remanufactured/refurbished parts??

Hi Shay, why not buy a new one from these suppliers I've used them myself for brake service kits in the past as they're local to me so I can collect.

Nice one Umbongo, have bought replacements for both sides, thanks very much :bow:

Get that "how to" posted up ASAP mate :biggrin:

Hi Shay, I didn't think that you was that desperate for them are your rotors OK or will you have to replace then too. International brake parts have their own web site you know and if you read the thread below you'll see my post on getting to the XT parts. :thumbs:
