Mine popped off Saturday (Juke bought in December 2010 and has 5,500 miles on it). I little epoxy, 3 cable ties and in about 5 minutes it was as good as new. Down the road if Nissan issues a recall for this and it gets fixed I will still spend the 60 cents and put 3 more cable ties around the sensor.

A word of advice to anyone reading this whose sensor has not popped off. Go out and spend $5 on a small tube of quick dry epoxy and six 12" long cable ties. Keep them in your Juke just in case. Better yet, spend the 5 minutes looking to see where the sensor is and secure those cable ties around it.

Mine has not popped off yet, but in anticipation of possible issues with the SRI I went ahead and epoxyed(sp?) and zip-tied mine (2). this is what I used... I think the psi should suffice but not 100% sure on the temp, it seems to still be ok 4 days later. O but be sure to use LOTS of ventillation!! this stuff is really smelly.

Mine popped a couple of months ago at the track. It took about a month to receive a replacement. The replacement lasted longer than the original and took about the same beating and held, so I assume it's better. I have since purchased GTM's metal piping to prevent the problem from ever happening again.

That said, I have the replacement stocker hanging around and will be willing to part with it for shipping. It's a free part we're entitled to under warranty, so it wouldn't be right to sell it... If you want to avoid the wait.

I think I remember someone who had done the zip tie thing and still had it pop. Also I was under the impression if it pops the car goes into "limp" mode and you still have to take it in to be serviced.

Not sure if it will pop off with the zip ties; I used 3 of them (over the middle and each end of the sensor) so it is pretty damn secure. As soon as I re-secured and ziptied the sensor my Juke went back to normal mode, no service was needed.

If the sensor poppped completely off and you had no way of securing it might be an issue driving. Another temporary fix would be to wrap duct tape around the pipe and sesnsor to keep it in place..

Limp mode limits the RPM to 2500 I believe. This means you would be able to hit about 55. Going downhill lol. Trust me...

It's a vacuum code. Once you zip-tie it or otherwise fox it and drive it for awhile, it will clear itself. Or you can disconnect the battery and reconnect it. Or you can just have the dealer clear it since you should take it to them anyways.

with an OEM reader diagnostic tool that can clear codes. They are relatively inexpensive.

seriously this, just got a really cheap bluetooth code reader/clearer on ebay for $15 and free shipping. It will work with my android phone using the Torque app, and I imagine there are similar apps for iphone and blackberry. It will also work with a PC if you've got a USB bluetooth receiver (usually around $15 in stores, $2 on ebay)

My IAT just popped today. I guess I was pretty lucky because I was down the street from my Nissan dealer and they will have a new pipe for me tomorrow. I only have 5,600 miles on my Juke. Nissan really needs to own up to this problem.

Mine popped less than a week after I purchased the car, and the dealership turned around and kept it for the next 2-3 weeks not knowing what had happened. I had never been as pissed as that driving around in a loaner, stripped Altima that smelled like BO and weed while my fully loaded juke just sat at the shop waiting for a replacement part.

I happened to stop at my local Nissan dealership yesterday and while there I had a conversation with one of the Service writer's. He mentioned he has had around 6 Juke's in over the last month that needed the IAT replaced. I'm curious is this an issue being seen by owner's that tend to high rev, etc. or an issue even being seen by Juke owner's that go easy on their Juke..

Its been an issue since the start...Countless complaints here on the Forum...And regardless of driving style it should not be occurring...I understand Nissan has a new part number out for this item.. But to date they have not issued a technical service bulletin or recall... I suspect its coming very soon...I've had my Juke since last Oct and crossing my fingers mine doesn't pop! I have a good working relationship with my service manager and I'm heading over today to see if they will go ahead and swap mine out for the newer part just to be safe..

and btw..if you go back through some of the post on here this issue has happened to those just driving in routine traffic...hardly aggressive..
