Re: The Best, Least-Known Tips & Tricks

There was a post about this: viewtopic.php?t=21723.

The plastic dust caps have a small hole in the top which allows water to drip into the strut housing - my 2013 did not come with the caps so I bought them. I think from 2013 forward there were no caps so water can collect. On mine the bolts were painted black but after three years it started to wear off. What I did was to plug the small hole in the cap with a small stainless steel screw; I greased the bolts and now no water collects with the caps in place. It's a cheap fix worth doing.

Maybe you might want to add this: Park in the sun when it's cold and in the shade when it's hot. If you can't park in the shade use a sun shade in the windshield. I recommend the Eclipse brand sun shade since it mounts directly to the windshield and automatically retracts making it easy to use.

Partial recirculation is really good if it is cold outside and cabin is very warm

have you thought about adding a section for tires to the original post? summarize opinions and feedback from other forum members, so other tire options as well as the stock OEM replacements?

Anyone is welcome to do that. I suggest another topic for it, though. We also still need a a FAQ on buying a used Leaf.
