I didnt get any paperwork with mine last week, but was told, that it had received the new bellhousing.Got mine going to Middlehurst tomorrow for 30 month service and suspected bell housing rattle. Is there a shortage of parts? How can you tell if you get the upgraded part or not? Do they give you any paperwork for the "recall" work?
Mine is back now... With the 'new design' bell housing... but I've already been on the phone to Middlehurst because it still rattles!
Not as bad maybe, but I wasn't expecting to hear any rattle.
Middlehurst say that the 2012 bell housing, which mine now has, is noisy even on the new 2012 cars they are having delivered in.
I was asked if i wanted to send it back, but was warned that because my car has been boosted, Nissan's policy is to only cover one bell-housing under warranty. Ironically, he told me not to use the 'new map' (Litchfield's map) until I decided on the way forward???
Middlehurst is currently quoting circa £800 for the bell-housing and £200 for ancilaries (plus probably some even more frightening price for labour)... So it certainly want's doing under warranty, even if it still isn't perfect!
Well this seems like a much more cost effective way of getting the issue fixed and means the issue is not so serious, right?I think you should take a minute and follow this link its seems there is an explanation and a fix for this problem .....
Reason for Bellhousing TSB - NAGTROC - The Nissan GT-R Owners Club
It also explains why it doesn't help to change to the new bellhousing in many cases .
Took me a few seconds to find this through google .
Do you mean a circlip or the shim that the NAGTROC guys are using?Well the proper fix would be the circlip on the bellhousing they have put on the JDM cars. This would stop the shaft moving which causes the rattle.
That's what I can't get my head round... there must be a reason why Nissan are sending Japanese cars out different to European cars. Is it our temperature variations (or rougher roads) that require more tolerance on the shaft?...a UK 2010 bellhousing here thats 2 years newer than my JDM and has no circlip.
so no idea why the UK one was not rectified at factory,.
