Download INTRODUCTION Nissan has determined that some 2004 model year Nissan Maxima vehicles may have a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety. There is a possibility that the tempered glass for the SkyView Roof may not have been cooled properly after the forming process, which could create excessive internal stress in the glass. This could eventually cause the glass to shatter into small pebble-like pieces and injure vehicle occupants. This issue does not affect Maxima vehicles equipped with the power glass sunroof. To prevent this condition from occurring, Nissan is conducting a Voluntary Safety Recall Campaign to inspect and replace, if required, the glass in the SkyView Roof. SERVICE PROCEDURE 1. Confirm the Skyview Roof Glass needs to be replaced as follows: For Vehicles With A Production Date Of October 2003 Or Before: • Replace the Glass. Continue with step 2 of this procedure. For Vehicles With A Production Date Of November 2003 Or December 2003: • Replace the Glass if the dots around the “CARLEX” name (located at the driver’s side rear corner of the Glass) look like any one of the examples shown in Figure 1. In this case continue with step 2 of this procedure. Remove Skyview Roof Glass CAUTION: Use suitable covers to protect upholstery, carpet, paint, etc. when performing this procedure.
