READING THE MANUALA. IntroductionNOTE: The following Section(s) contain "How to Use" information ONLY - for complete claimscoding examples/guidelines/policies, please reference the current Nissan "AssuranceProducts Resource Manual".When completing the work order, each person in the Claims Administration team is required toadd key information which pertains to their area of responsibility. As an example:TITLEDATA ENTRY REQUIREMENTService Advisor Customer/Vehicle Information Customer Comments Tire Claim InformationTechnician Technician Comments Cause of Problem/Primary Failed Part(PFP) Identification Repair Required/Performed PDI Fuel Dollar AmountParts Counterperson Parts Required Service Supplies RequiredClaims Administrator Claim CodesB. CLAIM CODESThis section of the Warranty Flat Rate Manual identifies and defines Claim Codes and explainshow to locate them within this manual.There are five basic codes which apply to warranty claims. These five codes are:1. The Operation CodeThe Operation Code is a six character code which lets Nissan know exactly what type ofrepair was performed. As an example:OP CODEGA10AA DESCRIPTIONR I or RPL Starter Motor Assembly[R I Remove and Install the same(original) part.][RPL Remove and Replace withnew or Remanufactured part]2. Flat Rate TimeThe Flat Rate Time is the amount of time that Nissan will pay your dealership to performa specific operation. The basic time unit is 0.1 hour or 6 minutes. As an example:FLAT RATE TIME0.4 HoursRev.4-12 2ACTUAL TIME24 Minutes

3. The PFP (Primary Failed Part)The PFP identifies the primary failed part that is, the part or component which caused therepair to be required. As an example:PRIMARY FAILED PARTStarter AssemblyPFP*23300-XXXXXR 4. The Symptom CodeThe Symptom Code is two characters and defines the customer’s complaint as identified bythe Service Consultant. As an example:CUSTOMER COMPLAINTHard/No Start-Cold EngineSYMPTOM CODEAA 5. The Diagnosis CodeThe Diagnosis Code is also two characters and describes the problem of the failed part asidentified by the technician. As an example:PROBLEM WITH PARTInternal Failure DIAGNOSIS CODE32C. USING THE WARRANTY FLAT RATE MANUALTo illustrate proper Warranty Flat Rate Manual usage, we will use the following scenario todescribe a repair situation and then detail the steps required to find the five codes detailedabove.The owner of a 1996 Maxima drives into your dealership and states that the battery is dead. Thetechnician finds the Alternator to be the problem and must Remove and Replace (RPL) it due toa "No-Start" condition.1. Identifying the CodesFirst let's look at the information we have so far.CATEGORYCustomer’s ComplaintPrimary Failed PartProblem with PartOperation Performed DESCRIPTIONBattery is deadAlternatorBound/Seized/StuckRPL Alternator CODESymptom CodePNC/PFPDiagnosis CodeOP CodeNote that the Flat Rate Time is not given and must be found in this Manual.Rev.4-123

2. Finding the CodesTurn to the chart titled “Group Codes” which is found inside the front cover. This chart breaksdown every major component on the vehicle by main and sub groups. Main Group “A” refers toEngine Mechanical and the Sub Groups are engine mechanical components. As an example:MAINGROUPAAAASUBGROUPDESCRIPTIONEngine MechanicalEngine AssemblyCylinder BlockOil PanABCThis Manual is organized alphabetically by Main and Sub Group. The first step is to find theMain and Sub Group applicable to the repair performed.In the scenario above, the alternator was removed and replaced. Using the group codes chart,alternator is found in the Engine Electrical category or main group “G” with alternator beingsub group “E”.OPERATION PERFORMEDRPL Alternator AssemblyMAIN/SUB GROUPGE GE - ALTERNATOR1RPL ALTERNATOR ASS’YGEFLAT RATE TIMEOPERATIONPNCKEYA34 A35 A60OPCODETWINCAMSUPERCHARGER4WD4WD/AWD’07&UP VHQR ENGVQVQVKB15QGSRB16QRMRC11QRHRD40MRQRL32VQQRN50 R35VQ QRH VQVRR51VQS35 V41 V42 Z33 Z50 Z51VKQRVGVQVQVQVQGE10AA--------------1.7 2.1 1.6 0.8 1.0 0.7 0.7 0.6 0.7 0.7 1.3 1.5 0.6 2.0------------------------------- 1.6 --------- 1.5 -------------------------- 1.6 ---- 0.7 ----1.4 -- 1.5 1.8 0.9 -- 1.6 0.8 1.6 2.2------------------- 1.6 -1.4 -- 1.5 1.8 -------------- 1.3 ---3-45COMBINATION:RPL BRUSH ASS’YRPL DIODE SETGE105AGE106A0.3 0.30.6 0.6---0.4 0.4 0.4 0.50.8 0.8 0.8 -----0.5 0.50.9 0.9---------------0.4 0.3 0.40.4 0.3 0.4---0.3 0.3 0.3 0.3 0.40.3 0.3 0.6 0.3 0.8---2-7O’HAUL ALTERNATOR ASS’YGE12AA--2.4 2.8--------------1.4 1.6 1.6 1.8----------------1.8 1.8------------------------------1.9 2.4 2.0----------------- 1.3 ---1.5 -- 2.7 1.4 2.8--------- 1.9 -------8RPL ALTERNATOR BRACKET0.6 ---- 0.8 0.8------------------ 0.6 0.50.4 -------------------- 0.7 ---- 1.2 0.3 0.4 -- 0.50.4 -- 0.4 0.5 1.0 ---- 0.8 ----------------------------- 0.3 ---9RPL ALTERNATOR ADJUSTING BAR10111-11PNCKEY12345678TWINCAMAWD/4WD’07&UP VHQR ENGINCLUDES: R&I ALTERNATOR ASS’Y.GE16AA 0.3 0.5 ------- 0.3 1.1 1.0 -RPL REAR PROTECTOR COVERGE20AA----------------RPL ALTERNATOR IDLER PULLEYGE22AA 0.5 0.4 0.4 7&UP VHQR ENGTWINCAMVQ35DE-HRALTERNATOR ASS’YALTERNATOR PULLEYALTERNATOR BRUSH & HOLDERIC TYPE VOLTAGE REGULATORALTERNATOR DIODE SETALTERNATOR ROTORALTERNATOR BEARINGALTERNATOR BRACKET-------------------------------0.5 0.5 0.3 0.3-----------------------------0.4 ---- 0.6 0.4----------------0.4 0.6 0.3 0.5 0.3 0.4 0.9-------------------------0.5 0.4 0.5 0.4-----GE9999STRAIGHT TIMEFAILED PART-0.3WARPNC 091011NPNPNPNPNPNPFAILED PARTALTERNATOR ADJUSTING BARREAR PROTECTOR COVERALTERNATOR IDLER PULLEYGEWARPNC RANTY117152317711925PNCKEYFAILED PARTWARPNC RANTYNPGERev.11/08Find the page in this Warranty Flat Rate Manual with “GE” printed at the top and bottom of thepage. This page identifies all repair operations applicable to the alternator.Operation CodeNext we must find the specific operation performed, Op Code and Flat Rate Time. The operation“RPL Alternator Ass’y” in our example identifies GE10AA as the Op Code.Rev.4-124

Flat Rate TimeTo the right of the Op Code are Flat Rate Times applicable to each model (Note that each modelmay have multiple columns specific to engine or body style, as applicable).The 1996 Maxima (or A32) Flat Rate Time for this operation is 1.2 hrs. The Flat Rate Time is then tobe multiplied by your dealership’s Warranty Labor Rate to determine the labor dollars Nissan will payfor the repair.As an example:If your Warranty Labor Rate Equals 50.00 per hour, 50.00 x 1.2 60.00or 60.00 will be paid by Nissan for laborPFPThe PFP must be identified by the Technician and can be found via FAST or in the Parts Catalog.In determining which part is the PFP, keep the following guidelines in mind: Assemblies Some components may be disassembled and repaired or replaced as an assembly,depending on the circumstances of the incident. The PFP should be the INDIVIDUAL PART ofthe assembly that caused the problem. If it is not possible to determine this, the assembly partnumber may be used. Seal and Gasket Kits Part numbers which identify seal and/or gasket kits, such as for the automatic transmission, engine, cylinder head, etc., may not be claimed as the PFP. Always use thepart number for the seal or gasket itself, not the kit. Sealant When sealant is used instead of a gasket, use the part number of the part beingsealed as the PFP. Example: The sealant between the oil pan and the cylinder block is replacedby removing the oil pan, cleaning the surfaces, resealing and replacing the pan. The oil panshould be used as the PFP. Other Service Supplies Any service supply purchased from NISSAN, such as brake fluid, rustpreventative, etc., may not be claimed as the PFP.Symptom and Diagnosis CodesAt the beginning of each Main Group section is a Symptoms/Diagnosis applications page. Thispage identifies all Symptoms and Diagnosis codes applicable to the Main Group.
