    Tailgate Lifters

    Thanks for the replies, when I got my silly head off, I found article telling how to pack the spring loaded poppers with coins or tap washers, 2 washers in each of them and tailgate lifts the right amount, no having to fiddle on with it.
  2. Hi Jimmy Do you have the two tailgate lifters, one of mine has a tag missing, don`t know the correct name for them, but they are about 3" long and have convoluted rubber over springs. Thanks David

    Tailgate Lifters

    Hi Got my silly head on, tailgate was not lifting off catch properly when opening, so I put some tap washers in to help spring openers, problem solved. one of the assisters had one of the bayonet tags broken, works but need to get another, what is the correct name for them and where is the best place to acquire one or two of them.

    Battery Earth Strap

    Solution was so simple, problem was the coloured polarity washers not allowing clamp to go down far enough, will probably have more common sense when my broken arm is healed.

    Battery Earth Strap

    The clamp on the earth strap is fully tightened and is not enough to tighten onto battery post, I assume the post on uk batteries must be marginally small, and new strap will probably be the same, battery is not old. my Mr2 was similar, but did tighten on to post. Has anyone else had this problem?

    Costly MOT work to pass

    Just got car back from being MOT`d and serviced, all it needed to pass was a new wiper blade Just under £300 from a Nissan Dealer, and they also washed it for free, and collected it and delivered it, as I have a broken arm at the moment.
  9. Hi.... When you say the car seems flat a bit, has the engine been serviced lately? Plugs filters etc, first place to start before any mods.

    Have I got my silly head on?

    Hi, tried that but they all seem to be individual downloads.
  13. Don`t seem to be able to find download link for this workshop manual, is it me being silly? http://manuals.co/workshop/nissan/350z/nissan-350z-2004-workshop-manual/5529460/1
