Many thanks for that. I am puzzled by the maintenance periodicities in section MA. E.g. every 6 months for inspection the brake pads and lubricating locks and 2 years for replacing the brake fluid seems way too frequent to me. My pads at 7 years and 50k miles are "as good as new".

2 years for replacing the brake fluid

It says in section MA of the manual about gearbox oil “If foreign matter, such as gear abrasion powder, is on the magnet of the filler plug, wipe it free of adherents before installation.” Mine had about 1mm thick coating of fine powder all over the magnet. Is that a normal amount? It’s not been checked for 3-4 years and possibly 7 if the garage never did it despite the manual’s yearly instruction.

Oil level is about 2mm below hole. It would be hard to get more in without making a mess. Anyone know where to buy the official Genuine NISSAN Matic S ATF reduction gear fluid? That is a USA recommended product but assume it’s the same in UK. Can’t find it on normal online ships, Maybe a Nisan dealer would sell it.
