Diesel exhaust fumes in cabin

Postby slashergreen » Sun May 13, 2018 1:56 pm

I can smell diesel exhaust fumes in the cabin of my 2010 R51 (72,000 km) on startup and particularly when I turn the heater/air conditioner on. Any suggestions about what I can check reasonably easily at home as possible causes before I take it into a workshop? Thanks.

Fixed by the local Nissan dealer for $77. A blanking bolt was missing from an unused bung in the exhaust downpipe just to the rear of the turbo, so exhaust was escaping through the bung hole and getting into the cabin through the vents. New blanking bolt fitted with threadlocker.
