Nissan Titan Door Sill
How to Counter Common Nissan Titan Door Sill Enemies
People constantly getting in and out of your Nissan Titan-that's a natural and undeniable scene. In all this hustle and bustle in your car's entry and exit points, there is a particular auto part that takes in most of the strain of damp and filthy feet-your Nissan Titan door sills. Frequently exposed to elements, your car's door sill is also prone to damage, just like your other Nissan Titan parts. Replacing your Nissan Titan door sill altogether is quite expensive and, in fact, difficult. It requires major disassembly of your car's interiors, and it may take more than a day off your driving calendar. Why don't you save yourself from such stressful and costly door sill replacements? Below are common Nissan Titan door sill problems and some simple tips to diagnose and counter them:
Scratched sill surface
Your Nissan Titan door sill is basically the car part that does most of the welcoming and the sendoff whenever someone enters or leaves your car premises. As such, it always receives the first and the last waves of all the dirt and grime that may come with your passengers. These unwanted elements include small pebbles, sand, and other minute but equally damaging trash. Of course, scratch is one of the major aftereffects of a visit from filth. Eventually, these minor scratches can cause irreparable deterioration in your Nissan Titan door sill, and you would have to deal with more unwanted elements sooner or later. Good thing scratches are fairly easy to detect by observation. Although damage from scratch cannot be undone, you can still prevent further scratch formation on your Nissan Titan door sills. Just remember these five letters: C, L, E, A, N.
Rusted door sill
As your door sill is also exposed to wet elements, such as damp shoes or occasional streaks of rain or snow, you can also expect rusting. If left untreated, rust can lead to formation of holes on your door sill, and in the end, you might have a permanent door sill problem instead of a dependable interior protection for your Titan. Again, you can detect rust by mere visual inspection. Once you see the golden bits of wear, try to brush off the loose rust particles first. For an additional patch up, apply a dab of denatured alcohol on your Nissan Titan door sills and top it with a rust-fighting solution, which you can conveniently purchase at auto parts stores.
