Sometimes there are different part no.‘s due to dual sourcing of Nissan: One (similar) part is made by more then 2 suppliers to avoid dependencies. That is very common in automotive industry.

But as i mentioned in other thread: Mercedes used same thermostate for their similar OM282-Engine build in Kolleda and they dont have any „upgraded“ versions: Imho this is a default Renault-engineered Thermostate for many modells and they have issues for years, just look at youtube for fix-videos from e.g. 1.3 Dacia‘s… or 1.3 Kadjars: They start leaking in Year 4-6, but this is well known by their workshops…

Has anyone else come across this? They quoted £480 to replace, I'm sure I could get it done cheaper but given the car is under 2 year extended warranty I'm thinking it's worth paying the extra as much as it bugs me overall!
If you have a 2 year extended warranty (assuming purchased when you bought this vehicle) - why would that warranty not cover it, should anything go wrong in that 2 years ??

Hello Everyone.

Please I have got a Nissan Qashqai 2020 (1.3 dig T).

I have got 27,000 miles on my Qashqai. I have read so many horror stories about the thermostat blowing up. I am always scared driving the car on motor way for fear of the inevitable.

I have purchased a 3rd party warranty cover from MotorEasy, but I doubt they will have my back if the thermostat problem comes up.

I have decided to now replace the thermostat , please can anyone kindly share the link where you ordered your replacement with me. I will like to get it done ASAP and if possible share the cost for fixing with me from a nissan dealership or private garage.

If you haven’t got a pair already, get some decent hose clip pliers as that’s what I struggled with the most as there’s a lot of hoses to release and they are in awkward places.
Remove the battery first to give yourself some working room, I didn’t to see if it was possible and save time. It is possible but it didn’t save time and made things a lot harder.
Take photos before to help with putting it all back together.
Don’t drop any bolts.
Bleeding the coolant after was surprisingly easy using the bleed nipples, there’s at least 3 of them

Ya, exactly as the other guy posted, not hard at all to do just a bit of ripping. You'll need a 10mm and 8mm socket with 1/4" drive ratchet. I used a normal pliers for the hose clips. I'd recommend watching the YouTube tutorial posted earlier on this thread.
