Cracked exhaust manifold

I finally handed my 04 beast to my local Nissan stealership. They played stupid but advised them of the notorious cracked manifold issues. They snapped out of it when I also gave them a case number from Nissan America i generated with those nice people down there. The service manager could not answer many technical questions I have learned through this website. He must have talked to the techs and was educated as well. Three recalls done and a replacement of cracked drivers side assembly performed to the tune of ZERO dollars. Thanks for all the help on here and it pays to be an educated consumer. Stealership tried to tell me several other issues need to be replaced. I called BS flag and declined.

04 beast LE Volant, Burtman touches etc. Only 44k miles on the living room w/ wheels.

Replacing

Are they replacing the manifolds under warranty or recall or something. Since the mada is an 04. Just wondering I might be experiencing the same thing recently. I'm not under warranty anymore though.

It's a well known problem. The warranty is under the emissions warranty which is longer.... 8yrs/ 80K miles or something like that. It's in your warranty booklet. You may be SOL, but check. Both of mine failed and were replaced.

Thanks I forgot emission was a little longer. So cak215 glad you found out before your 8 years is up. This is the last year for you to get it. Damn I'm SOL. I guess exhaust manifold is in my future plans.

Check w/ Nissan America people (very nice to me) at 1-800-647-7261. I also thought I was SOL but she told me I was covered until 3/13.....much to my surprise... since my math said 3/12. I was more than happy to contact them since my manifold was singing. My local dealership confirmed same. I am sure the tech was throwing wrenches and screaming at his rollaway when 2 studs broke off and needed replacement as well. Perhaps I will take it into the local sand pits and see if I can get the other side to crack under heavy load and take it back there for replacement on Nissan's dime . I am currently laughing
