Its an 'tension spring' meanings its pulling the two spring mount points together, and I can't see how i am going to get it anywhere near the ideal. Right now the lever on the arm is sitting off the actual hex head bolt that restricts movement. Any help would be appreciated. I am running an extension bracket due to the 3" nominal lift in the back, should this be removed - if I do remove it the spring will come under more load and try to shorten its length.
    Phil, check out page 48-51 of Y61 Patrol Reference document, should help out.

    After correction the spring is closer to a 90 degree angle (full line)
    As opposed to where it was prior to the bracket being fitted (dashed line)

    Many thanks for that, I will have a look at it tomorrow. Additionally I realised the actual dimension of the spring is measured with your foot on the brake - think I recall that correctly, so will get a stick of the correct length and jam it on the pedal and see what goes.

    Now while you have it apart please have a look and tell me why my air control flaps rattle.

    Does it rattle, like plastic insulated wire loom against hard surface sound (but it is not)... lol @ 2200-2500 rpm under slight eng load (more often in colder weather) and appears to come from in and up behind center console?

    Can you stop it by rotating flap control dial to demist (stops only sometimes)?

    Hi
    Yes if I turn the dial slightly it will sometimes stop rattling or moving to delist and back. It depends on the day. Mostly if I turn it half way to the next setting it will stop.
    It’s often worse in warmer months.
    Cheers

    OK, this is what I did after lots of yoga from under the dash. Remove center console cover and remove lower RHS dash shroud (adjacent to center counsel) and why not remove radio(easy), if you want. Go for a drive and when nose comes on, place hand/fingers in against flap control linkages on the RHS side of flap box and with slight sideways finger pressure, move around against flap control linkages and you should be able to stop the rattle. Mine was the small sector switch plate that had a felt washer on its pivot post (between the switch plate and the flap box side). I removed some of the sideways play by using slightly thicker felt washer (made up x 2 thickness). Think there was a screw holding a switch plate in position on its pivot point. The linkages have a slight amount of grease at the pivots and link arms, try a little more grease to absorb vibration and I even bent/deformed the sector plate a little to gain more clearance. You can easily slide your fingers in thru from front RHS of counsel with cover removed and access the sector plate holding screw linkages etc from up/under dash with lower shroud removed. Initially the noise seemed to come from all over the place (air ducting and even thought snorkel fixing bolts) but mainly center console cover area. Good idea to check snorkel retaining bolts while playing as mine were loose a little.

    Nissan had dash out twice before I found that the linkages were at fault.

    This is the sound deadening stuff I got @Rossco. The stuff you got. did it have some weight to it? The stuff I got is quite light. But thick.

    OK, brackets are at 90 deg, or within a degree judging by the square i used. The spring arm is sitting at 196mm whether i have no brakes applied or a pole jamming the brake pedal down - shouldn't this dimension change? Next step is to pull the thing out and see if its jammed up. This is getting a bit annoying now but I guess i am learning stuff.

    My understanding is that the spring length would change only when vehicle is in motion when the proportioning valve is compensating for the
    "differences in weight distribution front-to-rear as well as the forward weight shift that occurs when the brakes are applied."
