Mine done this week again too; hoping it doesn't now fail in 2017, when outside of the warranty :)

That looks pretty horrible. What is amazing to me is the Reaction or No Reaction to this by Nissan & The Supplier. This problem started off in April 14 by a Post from Gel and it would appear has never been solved. OK now only the End Caps are changed which is not a high cost item (Plastic) but it is just the inconvenience and time lost again by visiting the Dealer. Incidentally I noticed it has started coming back on our QQ also. Living out here I did talk to NCS UK about this problem gave them the forum Info' and the Facts and guess what never heard a Peep since - Dave :oops:

Oh dear Dave, same as me & others I expect.
It would be nice to think Nissan had rooted out problem & changed the spec, but am not that hopeful.
The original fix, whereby they changed the complete roof rails, must have cost a fortune which either Nissan, or more likely it's supplier paid...unless an in house manufactured product.
Strange how it seems to take around a year to develop.

Had mine changed last year but the replacements are still the same. 2nd service soon so have mentioned it when it goes in.

Hi

Had my end caps replaced after just under 2 years The original ones did start to "craze" quite soon after I bought the car although I stuck with them until they got really bad

The new set seem a lot better thank goodness but a shame they did not get it right in the first place

Good luck with everyone getting the replacements sorted as this is clearly an issue I got my cay in June 2014

Another issue I have with my QQ, originally only noticed one when the sun was shining on it last week, but on washing & checking all 4 they are all affected to some degree (the one I spotted last week being the worst).

I'd already mentioned the one I'd spotted to the dealer as my car is going back in for a couple of other things next week, but their response was that they'd check it, photograph it & send off to Nissan for a warranty claim (if they deem fit)...but I can be done without the car having to go back in or be stuck in waiting for them to make a decision or supply parts.

Anyone know if these caps are still on back order? I waited ages for the Condensor for my X Trail, which ironically arrived on Fri, too late to be any use to me.

Teknaman, you should insure that you have pics of the defects and notify NCS in writing if not done so before. This way will result in you becoming a NCS No. and this is your reference to chase Nissan through the Dealer. When our's was changed we had new Rails & Caps installed but now I believe they change only the Caps which is a quick job. We got our's in a week but now the problem could be bigger like the Condenser - Best of Luck Dave ;)
