I ordered new tires at Discount Tire, they should be there Monday mid-day. Discount gave me $37 credit because my old tires did not meet mileage, and I get a $40 mail-in rebate because I signed up for Discount Tire credit card (no interest payoff option) and paid before the Jan. 31 rebate end. I ordered Hankook Optimo H724 (rated "better") for $60 each.

I adjusted my front toe using the tape measure method today. And manually adjusted the rear brakes.

I adjusted the toe of the Frontier using the measuring tape method for measuring, after a free alignment check on a Hunter machine at Brake Masters showed its toe to be slightly toed out. Mrs. Cusser helped me by holding the tape measure in the tire groove.

My 1998 was overdue for a fuel filter replacement (75K on it) so I did that today as well. Nissan is exceedingly dumb in my opinion in the engineering of this, the bracket is in the way of replacing the fuel filter. I've reported that when I got this truck at 100K, the fuel filter had never been replaced, its clamp screws were facing up and essentially impossible to access. It's all designed to be installed before the bed goes on, and screw those trying to do this later on.

So this time I wised up, finally got fed up, so I reversed the bracket to underneath so it wouldn't block access to the fuel filter, yet still secures the filter in place. I drilled three holes in the support bar and used three #12 hex head sheet metal screws after drilling 9/64" holes.

I removed my parking brake switch today, it was inoperative, would not operate the "BRAKE" light on the dash when engaged with the engine running. I believe this part number is 3601101G00, but I was able to clean up my switch using my drill press with the wire wheel, checked with ohmmeter many times. In this process I either broke or found the single black wire to it to be broken. Tomorrow I plan to solder a piece of wire to fix this, was wondering if the parking brake assembly is able to be readily unbolted from the firewall, and if so: how, please !!! I think that might make things easier. My truck does not have a "connector" on this wire.

Picture from Ebay of this part:


The official 1998 Frontier service manual is ZERO help on this. Thanks.

So after cleaning up the parking brake switch and confirming proper operation today, turns out that I had some black wire already, so soldered that to the short switch wire, and used shrink tubing. Then I routed that wire out of the way, crimped on male & female terminals to that new wire and the original wire from the truck, electrical-taped that, and now brake warning light works as it should. Below: engine running, parking brake engaged, lights as it should. Then rear drum b rakes adjusted manually to compensate for the wear, success !!
