2015 pathfinder v6 4wd
My neighbor has a similar year Pathfinder to mine 2014 - 2016. She had a tire going flat and attempted to lower the spare and it would not work. Apparently, the mechanism is rusted such that it will not lower. I jacked up the car and plugged the tire as a temporary fix. She took to local Nissan dealer and they quoted a price of almost $2000 to replace mechanism! I checked my pathfinder and the lowering device works correctly. I would caution that you should check operation before going on a trip and possibly spray lubricant on device to under car to maintain operation. If you live in area where salt is used on the roads or car came from such an area if it is used, be careful.
