Tailgate Power Cinch

Postby scarelli » Sat Mar 06, 2010 7:10 pm

I was watching a video on YouTube. Andy the Nissan guy had mentioned starting in 2008 a power cinch was added to the tailgate of SE and LE pathfinders. So it will suck in the liftgate if you don't close it all the way.

I have a 2010 SE and don't notice this feature... so it's either not there or doesn't work... or I just don't notice it...

Does anyone know if this feature was dropped between 2008 and now?

My '08 has it as well. How far down are you closing it? I swing the door down until it just touches the latch and then it pulls it in the rest of the way.

I tried to close it one click.. Still nothing. I'm curious if I even have this feature or if it's broken.

Where is the mech that pulls the door in? Is it part of the latch?

I'd be curious if I could get the part from courtesy parts.

Thanks for some insight on this!

My Pathy has it as well, nice feature, just lwr the tailgate all the way by hand till it touches or stops and it gets sucked in automatically. DO NOT SLAM door shut. I have also shut mine befor and it did not suck in all the way, I was in a hurry..not paying attention and when driving down the highway, the rear latch unlocked idiot light came on.

I was trying to figure out what mechanism pulls the door in.

i was looking through some repair manuals i found on ninoclub. The 2008 rear door locks look to be the same as the 2009. Not sure if this feature was dropped in 2010 models??

Anyone have any idea what part does this?

I have 2010 SE as well and it is non cinching. I looked at 2008/09/10 service manuals and only 2008 lists cinching liftgate mechanism. Looks like it may have just been a 2008 option.? My owners manual however says to close slowly and it will pull in. I think this is typo left in from prev yrs.?

I have an 08 SE V8 that I can hear the electronic latch running to cinch even if I slam it. I also have tried to shut it softly, and it doesn't seem do do anything. I replaced the latch because it started to rattle and the parts were about $150 on Courtesy. I'd like to know if this is a real feature and if so, how do I use it?

Finally figured it out. If you close it one click, it will pull it in the rest of the way. This is a 2008 model SE. If I remember correctly, it is one motor assy that sits somewhere below the rear window and only a cable runs down to the latch. It's easy to pull the plastic panel and see what is going on inside. You just pull one bolt in the handle and two more behind the first aid kit open the window and pull the plastic panel out, and up.
