Default Child seat anchor in d40 navara

Hey guys has anybody on here had to get anchor points installed in a d40 navara by any chance?

I'd love to know what they are going to do before I fork out the three hundred bucks to have ONE anchor point installed.

they drill into your chassis to install them..i wouldn't worry about it!

but yes it is expensive because they have to have a licence to be able to do it

Hey man that was quick!

I'm not too worried about what he has to do but when the guy told me that he only takes about twenty minutes to do it I was left scratching my head as to how he can justify the price?

Trust Nissan to make a dual cab with no anchor points

Personally I wouldn't care if it cost $1000 and took 10mins, if it is going to keep my boys safe and secure then it's money well spent. I had to have an Anchor bar installed in my shorty cause Nissan werent kind enough to install them in it either.

Such a stupid thing with that, only the St-x has anchor points all others have to be drilled. Well worth it for your child's safety though $300 is a small price to pay for your child's life. I know in qld our ambulance service can let you know who can do it and what has to be done. Pretty sure it would involve a mod plate too. May pay to check with the rta first

I'm not questioning the safety aspect of the install, just curious to know what I am actually getting for my money.

My post in this thread has vanished. I did say that a lot of dual cabs have to have bars fitted. Also if you are fitting a capsule and it needs to face backwards make sure it will fit. I found even cars like Subaru Foresters you need to have one of the front seats right forward to fit them in. D40 is reasonably large inside so you may be ok.

Cheers vman. My daughter is nearly two so she sits upright. I had a jackaroo when she was born and in that the front passenger seat was right forward. I've since discovered that there are some child seats you can buy that aren't as bulky in the backwards position. You live and learn

The d40 is the work truck so she won't be in it all that much. Probably just goin to bunnings with dad on a Saturday morning

you have to remember though they have to purchase the licence to do them from the government like RWC's so they pass some sort of cost on

$75 for the DCD device(not just a bolt) and around 1.5-2hrs labour @$55ph.
$175 is pretty cheap when most dealers will charge there customer $300+,and still we charge the dealer $175.Its really not that much money when a child is invloved.
