2011 Nissan Sentra Questions and Answers

  • How do the Weathertech Side Window Deflectors Install on a 2011 Nissan Sentra
  • These Weather Tech Side Window Air Deflectors # WT72446 actually install very easily. It is a little difficult to describe how they attach, but basically you will need to slightly bend the deflectors to get them in place and then once you release the bend the tension of the deflector holds it in place. There are no adhesives to mess with or anything else. I attached installation instructions for you to check out also.

  • Removing Hitch Lock without Access to the Key Hole and Bike Rack Locked onto Hitch
  • I do have a couple of options that you can try before you remove the hitch. First, you can try drilling into the lock (which will destroy it) to free the lock from the pin so you can then remove the pin. The second option is to call a locksmith who will likely have the tools and know-how to remedy the situation with minimal effort.

I have attached a drawing that shows how load resistors should be installed you can check out. If you are still having the problem with the one time turn signal and then nothing, you might want to check the output side of the resistor wiring with a multi-meter to make sure you are getting sufficient current for...

  • Using 50 Inch Thule Square Crossbars on 2011 Nissan Sentra
  • I spoke with my Thule representative, who told me that if you were to use the 50 inch crossbar, the roof rack feet would be at the improper angle to the rooftop, which might compromise the connection between the foot and the door jamb. Since the last thing you'd want is for your roof mounted cargo to come loose during a panic stop or an accident, I'd recommend going with the 58 inch crossbars that Thule recommends. To construct a roof rack using the square crossbars, you'd need the following...
