Would you recommend asking them to replace this part whilst it's there? It's only got 17k miles but I'm driving to Europe in August and don't want to be left stranded!
The housing has a QR code on the side, the data that that returns when u scan it holds the part number. You'd only need it replaced if the part number is not the latest - N110600260R.
Thanks, I'll ask them to check. But the question is whether it's worth doing this pro-actively at my expense?
That's your call. Personally, I didn't want the risk of it failing and taking the engine with it. It doesn't give any warning and by the time u realise what's happening it could be too late.

So I just spoke to Nissan who have my car at the moment and they said there is no sticker or qr code indicating what version of the part I have, so they couldn't confirm and just quoted for a new one and said it was my decision. 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!

Well the latest version does come with a QR code on the side... so that suggests that what you have is indeed 'not' the latest. I paid £420 back in Jan and you get a 1 year warranty if done via Nissan.

Do you think there's any merit in trying to haggle on the labour cost, given that they are taking the gearbox off anyway?

There's no harm asking, it proves you know what it is and where it goes so they can't try and con you saying there's a lot of extra ripping involved to get at it. If it was me I'd change it as there's work being done in that area anyway. Peace of mind at least. They have a tenancy to leak after a few years anyway due to the small seal if not in the dramatic exploding way.

In any case the picture of the one you see on Amazon,eBay etc is a non OEM equivalent of the housing in question. The OEM version still has the visible seam and has not been changed to be solid in that area. I've checked with both Nissan and Renault on this in two service centres directly.
Surely if Nissan fit it, it comes with a 12 month warranty so if it blows in that time that must include any associated damage.

Only 12 months I know but better than nothing and worth the extra £150 to get the mqin dealer to do it than a local garage I would have thought

Not doubting you mate but I wonder why the part number has changed and is now 110600260R?
My 69 plate has a QR code that shows up as 110607087R

260R has been the updated part number for ages.?
7087R is an old one, is it not?
My 2020 car has a QR code which shows it is 7087R, the old one.

Yes , that's right as far as I know, but why has the partner number changed if it hasn't been enhanced?

just because it looks the same on the outside doesn't mean they haven't changed it on the inside or used better quality materials during the manufacture of that part.
