The NP was the last with the footrest.

I fitted up a NP footrest to my NW today that I purchased through Amayama, with a few differences to what has been posted before. I made a strengthening plate that fitted inside the the footrest, and then used the usual hardware to attach the footrest to the floor. A threaded joiner and nut locked onto the floor stud, a 40mm piece of threaded rod, couple of mudguard washers under the footrest. Then a spring washer and threaded joiner to lock it all down. The carpet is not as nice as if it was made to have a proper footrest but the Sandgrabba mat from an NP covers it all up anyway. I was fortunate that Sandgrabba sold me one so I could test it out, as a favour. If you want to install the footrest and Sandgrabba mats, an NP set will fit nicely. Crikey, it feels good to have a proper footrest again. I have added a photo comparing NW and NP Sandgrabba mats and there is about 50mm difference in height between the two.

Always sounds blunt via text not meaning to. But the NS was as far as I'm aware the last to have footrest, I have one in my vehicle.

One thing I have found after driving round for a few days with the footrest fitted is this. Without a proper footrest my hips were out of line in the Pajero seat and after a couple of hours I would get a numb bum, as I suffer from sciatica. In tens of thousand of k's in my 80 Series with Stratos seats and a good footrest it never happened but in the Pajero it was a different story. Now, with a proper footrest it is night and day as far as my hip alignment and back is concerned. I am hopeful that I will be as comfy over long distances as I was before.

Hi Everyone,
I feel like i am going mad trying to install this foot rest.
I have read through the thread here and it sounds like it should just fit, but if i use the top hole, it is way to LOW, and if i use the botton hole, it is far too HIGH.
What am i doing wrong here?!

Have you pulled the carpet up and taken out the white block of foam underneath?

Mine is through the bottom hole, but the bolt doesn’t come through at 90 degrees. I’d try to flatten the carpet against the floor, then put it through the bottom hole and try to push the footrest into position as best you can and tighten the nut. Hope that makes sense.

Following on from my initial question, I now have the footrest in my NX.
I had to make the following modifications to make it fit.
I cut the top part of the foam block, and anchored it to the floor under the carpet with double sided tape. You can see the piece that was left over in the photo.
Then i grabbed some spare plywood and padded out the top of the footrest to rest on the foam block under the carpet. Secured it with a screw so it would stay on the footrest.
Then simply installed the footrest using the bottom hole for the threaded rod, and it now sits perfectly!
Might not have been the easiest install, but I feel confident putting my full weight on the foot rest and it doesnt move at all!
