    Posted: 11áJaná2013 at 9:49pm
Hi,

I've had my Qashqai for just over a month now & lovin it, but one thing that has puzzled me straight away is why the 1.6 petrol engine doesn't have a Nissan engine cover/shroud like every other QQ does! It doesn't look right not having a Nissan badge on engine. At first I thought the cover was just missing, but after hunting around on line & asking at the dealer it seems the 1.6 petrol doesn't get a Nissan badged cover.
Seems odd when the other engine variants do & every manufacturer seems to have some sort of plastic cover with their name on it under the bonnet
Does anyone know why the 1.6 doesn't get one? is it because the sits engine too high for one!

Or will a cover off another Nissan engine will fit? - looking at various photos of Nissan engines most have the same plastic inlet manifold under the covers as the 1.6 does & the covers I've seen use the same two fixing locations , the oil cap & dip stick are in the same places as well.
Might need a trip down the local breaker & see if I can find one off another Nissan to try.

cheers, a puzzled Monty Confused!!

On the 1.5dci (of which mine is the latter upgrade) the aluminium turbo boost pipe goes over the top of the engine. There is no room above the pipe for an engine cover to fit under the bonnet. The earlier 1.5dci did have a cover but the engine was a different layout.  Having no engine cover is helpful in many ways - you can immediately see the engine.

thanks for answers guys,
maybe its not just the 1.6 petrol then.
Just seems odd when all manufacturers like to have some form of shiny badge under the bonnet
Do Nissan actually build the 1.6 petrol engine?
I know the 1.5dci is the unit from Renault & I think Ford use it as well.
just found this image of a Mirca with the 1.6 petrol engine, so they do have a cover for it.


might try our local breakers.
My QQs just got to have a Nissan badge under the bonnet
cheers
