Hey, I did use gorilla tape one of those big coolant hoses that the dealership didn’t feel I needed it replace. They did replace a lower one though.
Looks solid repair there. If mine lasted over 6 years, yours should last 2 decades! I didn’t even have the ball at the end of the cable to work with.
Seriously, zip ties are my go to item when fixing stuff on my rogue.
Of course I zipped tied my rear speakers in place recently.
I zipped tied that black not-so-rectangular plastic box near the middle with Nissan branded on it because the plastic hole on the end broke.
I zipped tied assorted wires here and there.
Zipped tied miscellaneous stuff on the underbody of the rogue.
Once used zip tie as back up attachments for my make shift cargo basket in addition to some u-bolts. Until I got a real basket.
Zipped tied rubber spacers on my coil struts.
Zipped tied some rope to my bull bar.
Zipped tied 4 lights to my cargo basket. Their for decorative use only and not wired. Seriously, you can’t tell if they were real or fake. Lolz.
Zip tied 2 fake anti-static earth ground strips but do have a real one attached to the muffler pipe.
Zipped tied 1 loose curb feeler. Doesn’t really work because it’s too short but didn’t want to waste it and painted them black. I’m not into chrome so you won’t see any silver on my vehicle.
Before anybody says anything, everything I mentioned is so subtle and below the radar. You don’t notice all this stuff even though you might think my rogue looks like a rolling circus.
My roof lights use to be the main attraction; which is actually 3m taped on. Which is another topic, I won’t get into. Lolz.
But now people really notice my cargo basket set up which the Nissan service advisor told me that his customers were noticing when I had it inspected the other day.
In other words, all I’m saying is that I use zip tie to find a solution when fixing things. Too many to even mention here!
