PRECAUTIONS
< SERVICE INFORMATION > [2WD]

SERVICE INFORMATION A
PRECAUTIONS
Precaution for Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) "AIR BAG" and "SEAT BELT B
PRE-TENSIONER" INFOID:0000000005779711

The Supplemental Restraint System such as AIR BAG and SEAT BELT PRE-TENSIONER, used along C
with a front seat belt, helps to reduce the risk or severity of injury to the driver and front passenger for certain
types of collision. Information necessary to service the system safely is included in the SRS and SB section of
this Service Manual.
WARNING: D
To avoid rendering the SRS inoperative, which could increase the risk of personal injury or death in
the event of a collision which would result in air bag inflation, all maintenance must be performed by
an authorized NISSAN/INFINITI dealer. FSU
Improper maintenance, including incorrect removal and installation of the SRS can lead to personal
injury caused by unintentional activation of the system. For removal of Spiral Cable and Air Bag
Module, see the SRS section.
F
Do not use electrical test equipment on any circuit related to the SRS unless instructed to in this
Service Manual. SRS wiring harnesses can be identified by yellow and/or orange harnesses or har-
ness connectors.
G
PRECAUTIONS WHEN USING POWER TOOLS (AIR OR ELECTRIC) AND HAMMERS
WARNING:
When working near the Airbag Diagnosis Sensor Unit or other Airbag System sensors with the Igni- H
tion ON or engine running, DO NOT use air or electric power tools or strike near the sensor(s) with a
hammer. Heavy vibration could activate the sensor(s) and deploy the air bag(s), possibly causing
serious injury.
When using air or electric power tools or hammers, always switch the Ignition OFF, disconnect the I
battery, and wait at least 3 minutes before performing any service.
General Precautions INFOID:0000000005473301
J
When installing rubber parts, final tightening must be carried
out under unladen condition* with tires on ground.
*: Fuel, radiator coolant and engine oil full. Spare tire, jack, K
hand tools and mats in designated positions.
Use flare nut wrench when removing and installing brake
tubes.
L
After installing removed suspension parts, check wheel align-
ment and adjust if necessary.
Always torque brake lines when installing.

Front Suspension Parts INFOID:0000000005473307

Check front suspension parts for excessive play, cracks, wear and
other damage.
Shake each front wheel to check for excessive play.
If looseness is noted, adjust wheel bearing end play, then check
ball joint end play.

Refer to FSU-22, "Inspection".


Make sure that the cotter pin is inserted.
Tighten all nuts and bolts to the specified torque.

Refer to FSU-6, "Component". SMA525A

Check shock absorber for oil leakage and other damage.

CAMBER, CASTER AND KINGPIN INCLINATION


FSU
Before checking camber, caster or kingpin inclination, move
vehicle up and down on turning radius gauge to minimize fric-
tion. Ensure that the vehicle is in correct posture.
Measure camber, caster and kingpin inclination of both right and F
left wheels with a suitable alignment gauge and adjust in accor-
dance with the following procedures.
G

In the following two cases, temporarily tighten the adjusting bolts


while aligning the matching marks with the slits as shown in the fig- I
ure at the right and measure the camber, caster and kingpin incli-
nation:
- When replacing the upper link or other suspension parts with new J
ones
- When matching marks were not painted on adjusting bolts before
suspension disassembly procedures
If matching marks were already painted during suspension disas- K
sembly, align the matching marks with the slits, then temporarily
tighten the adjusting bolts. Measure the camber, caster and king-
pin inclination. L

Revision: September 2009 FSU-9 2010 D22 LCV


ON-VEHICLE SERVICE
< SERVICE INFORMATION > [2WD]
1. Both camber and caster angles are adjusted by adjusting bolts.
If the kingpin inclination is outside specifications, check the
front suspension parts for wear or damage. Replace faulty
parts with new ones.
2. From the measured value, read the coordinate (or graduation) at
the intersecting point in the graph.
a. If the coordinate (or graduation) at the intersecting point is posi-
tive, move the pin outward by turning the corresponding adjust-
ing bolt by the indicated graduation.
b. If the coordinate (or graduation) at the intersecting point is nega-
tive, move the pin inward by turning the corresponding adjusting
bolt by the indicated graduation.
After properly moving the pin(s), tighten the front and rear
adjusting bolts to specifications.

PRECAUTIONS
< SERVICE INFORMATION > [4WD]

SERVICE INFORMATION A
PRECAUTIONS
Precaution for Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) "AIR BAG" and "SEAT BELT B
PRE-TENSIONER" INFOID:0000000005779712

The Supplemental Restraint System such as AIR BAG and SEAT BELT PRE-TENSIONER, used along C
with a front seat belt, helps to reduce the risk or severity of injury to the driver and front passenger for certain
types of collision. Information necessary to service the system safely is included in the SRS and SB section of
this Service Manual.
WARNING: D
To avoid rendering the SRS inoperative, which could increase the risk of personal injury or death in
the event of a collision which would result in air bag inflation, all maintenance must be performed by
an authorized NISSAN/INFINITI dealer. FSU
Improper maintenance, including incorrect removal and installation of the SRS can lead to personal
injury caused by unintentional activation of the system. For removal of Spiral Cable and Air Bag
Module, see the SRS section.
F
Do not use electrical test equipment on any circuit related to the SRS unless instructed to in this
Service Manual. SRS wiring harnesses can be identified by yellow and/or orange harnesses or har-
ness connectors.
G
PRECAUTIONS WHEN USING POWER TOOLS (AIR OR ELECTRIC) AND HAMMERS
WARNING:
When working near the Airbag Diagnosis Sensor Unit or other Airbag System sensors with the Igni- H
tion ON or engine running, DO NOT use air or electric power tools or strike near the sensor(s) with a
hammer. Heavy vibration could activate the sensor(s) and deploy the air bag(s), possibly causing
serious injury.
When using air or electric power tools or hammers, always switch the Ignition OFF, disconnect the I
battery, and wait at least 3 minutes before performing any service.
General Precautions INFOID:0000000005473332
J
When installing rubber parts, final tightening must be carried
out under unladen condition* with tires on ground.
*: Fuel, radiator coolant and engine oil full. Spare tire, jack, K
hand tools and mats in designated positions.
Use flare nut wrench when removing and installing brake
tubes.
L
After installing removed suspension parts, check wheel align-
ment and adjust if necessary.
Always torque brake lines when installing.

vehicle up and down on turning radius gauge to minimize fric-
tion. Ensure that the vehicle is in correct posture.
Measure camber, caster and kingpin inclination of both right and F
left wheels with a suitable alignment gauge and adjust in accor-
dance with the following procedures.

Revision: September 2009 FSU-31 2010 D22 LCV


ON-VEHICLE SERVICE
< SERVICE INFORMATION > [4WD]
1. Both camber and caster angles are adjusted by adjusting bolts.
If the kingpin inclination is outside specifications, check the
front suspension parts for wear or damage. Replace faulty
parts with new ones.
2. From the measured value, read the coordinate (or graduation) at
the intersecting point in the graph.
a. If the coordinate (or graduation) at the intersecting point is posi-
tive, move the pin outward by turning the corresponding adjust-
ing bolt by the indicated graduation.
b. If the coordinate (or graduation) at the intersecting point is nega-
tive, move the pin inward by turning the corresponding adjusting
bolt by the indicated graduation.
After properly moving the pin(s), tighten the front and rear
adjusting bolts to specifications.
3. Re-measure to ensure that the camber and caster are within
specified tolerances.
[Example]
a. Measured values corresponding with the two values indicated
below:

Camber angle : 006 (0.10)


SFA817B
Caster angle : 210 (2.17)
b. Apply the above two values to the graph and determine point A.
c. The coordinate (or graduation) indicates that both the front and rear adjusting bolts must be turned out-
ward by 3 graduations. Turn the adjusting bolts by the amount corresponding with the three graduations.
