Follow this link to a list of downloadable xterra factory service manuals (.pdf files). The FSM's are a much more thorough and detailed guide to both routine maintenance and repairs. Click on your year model xterra then download the individual files.

You click the link he posted above, then click the link for the year of Xterra you have.

Inside that "folder" you'll see all of the PDF's. Each PDF is a section of the owners manual, and the FWD.pdf should be the front section that lists what letter code the other sections are (Example: EM.PDF would be Engine Mechanical).

I know the 2001 version I have, if you download all of the PDF's into the same folder, you can click links built into the PDF that will take you to the page you need even if it's in one of the other sections PDF files (I know this works with Foxit PDF Reader anyhow, and should with Adobe)

BUMP for recent posts needing DIY maintenance help.

Stickys, for whatever reason, seem to get overlooked.

You WILL NOT find another manual anywhere near as comprehensive as the factory service manual. A must download for all xterra owners.

Figures the 2006 year is missing. Good thing the 07 and 06 were virtually identical.

Anybody find a source for the 2006 FSM?

Is the 2005 or 2007 FSM a better substitute?

Thanks so much for this thread. I downloaded the 2000 Xterra manual when I first joined a few years back and have LOVED having it. Just brought home a 2012 Pro-4X today, and grabbed that manual from the link in this thread. One question, where is the "Index" page. I downloaded all files from that directory, and none of them seem to be an "Index". When I click on the link "Quick Reference Index" in the left side of Adobe reader, nothing happens. All other links within that document and on the left menu work fine, just that first one to the index does not work.

Would really like to have the index page as a start point, so if anyone knows what I may be doing wrong, would appreciate the heads up.

Thanks to all for all that you do ;~))

Aloha~

fwd.pdf looks to be the front index page. Mine (2003) has idx.pdf as a rear index.

Hey AMG1982;

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, the 2012 docs have neither the FWD or the IDX.

Any other thoughts? Do I use one from a previous year? If so, what year?

Thanks to anyone who can shed some light on this for me.

I have the 2011 manuals. The "idx" is missing as well. The "fwd" pdf is listed, but the hyperlinks don't work, and clicking them won't automatically send you to the right chapter. It is handy for trying to figure out what file (abbreviation) you need to go to though.

Edit: I just figured out that I was wrong about the hyperlinks in the "fwd" file. They do indeed work, but I had to save all the files to my hard drive first.

Thanks for the reply Mogman. Well I did download all files from the beginning, and there is no FWD.PDF or IDX.PDF in the 2012 listings, so not sure what to do here. As I mentioned in my initial thread on this topic, I can see the links on the left when I open a file, and all links work, EXCEPT the one to take me to the index.

Any additional info appreciated.

BTW, nice Merc Mogman~

Cheers!

I noticed Nissan recomends replacing brake fluid every 15 or 30000 miles...really, is this necessary??

OK, can not find the fwd.pdf for the 2012 manual at this location (Index of /FSM/Xterra/2012_xterra (http://www.nicoclub.com/FSM/Xterra/2012_xterra/)). If anyone has it, please let me know and see that it gets added to the url above. Based on the reply by Mogman (that he did have a 2011 fwd.pdf), I grabbed the 2011 fwd.pdf, downloaded it into the folder with my 2012 manual, and all is working great. I have not tested all links, but I clicked on a dozen or so and all took me to the proper sub files. Only problem is the details in the opening pages of the fwd document all refer to the model year 2011 and some of the measurements may be off, but I can always confirm them in other parts of the FSM and/or owners manual.

Anyone who is having a similar problem that I was having (no index page and links to Quick Reference Index were not working), here is the deal. Grab the index page from the nearest year to what you have. If it is for a >=2005 vintage, you would get the fwd.pdf from the year closest to you. Otherwise grab the idx.pdf from the nearest year if it is for a <=2004. This should suffice as a workaround for your FSM index page. Do not try and use a 2004 idx.pdf with a >=2005 FSM as it may not work. Same thing with using a fwd.pdf for anything <=2004, probably won't work.

Hope this helps someone.

Thanks to all who help provide this valuable resource.

What pics are you talking about?

This thread was started by Drake. The title is "Xterra Factory Service Manuals"

In his opening post, he has a link........this one:

http://www.nicoclub.com/FSM/Xterra/

You click on that link and it will take you to a page that has all the factory service manuals for Xterra models 2000 thru 2013.

Since you have a 2002, click on "2002 Xterra" this will take you to this link:
http://www.nicoclub.com/FSM/Xterra/2002_Xterra/

Those are all the individual files that make up the entire Factory Service Manual for the 2002 Xterra. They are in .pdf format, so you have to have a reader like Adobe or Foxit.

You can save them all to your hard drive and use the hyperlinks in the "fwd.pdf" file to access all of them, or you can just click on the "fwd" link to locate the individual chapter you need to access from the 'net.

I think Mogman got you pointed in the right direction now. Don't bother with Chilton or Haynes manuals. I have one as well and they are nothing in comparison to the FSM's. They don't cover near enough detail nor encompass near as much as the FSM's do.

For future reference, not sure of the other year model FSM's but the '04 FSM has or had really screwy .pdf file names. Once you download them, go to each one, find out what it covers and rename it something more recognizable. For instance, seeing "FSU" might lead you to believe it will cover the fuel sending unit and fuel system. Wrong. It is for front suspension. :D

The short answer is probably. I'm not exactly sure why the '06 (and '08) manuals are missing. There are likely to be very few changes to maintenance procedures between the second gens. What I do when I'm trying to help other members with their '06 is to check the manuals of the '05 and '07 for any differences on the particular task in question.

Thanks for your efforts. It is appreciated.

I'm not sure, but I seem to recall 2006 was when they changed the style of the Xterra? At least that's what I seem to remember the dealer telling me. If that is true then I guess 2007 would be closer? Maybe there wasn't enough of a change that would matter to someone like me.

Mogman
09-13-2013, 05:34 PM
The '06 is a second generation "Gen 2" Xterra. Production on G2 started in '05 to present. For the most part, they are similar (the exception being different trim packages, options and transmission choices).

GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) is I believe Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait and Bahrain. The GCC manual is for models built for that region/market.

Folks

Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) members are Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, and the United Arab Emirates (Abu Dhabi and Dubai). RacerXXL is correct in that the 2010 GCC manual is for models built for this region, commonly called "Gulf Specs".

I live and work in the UAE and am the proud owner of a 2005 SE V6 Xterra that I purchased here. However, mine was imported from the USA and therefore is dubbed "American Specs".
