Shezza's zed time story


Recommended Posts

Well not updated this for a while ! The poor old zeds not seen much action having only covered around 500 miles in the last year due to having now brought  the house we’ve been renting and working on that. Oh and of course COVID and not being able to attend any shows/meets.

 

She’s had two services since I last updated this. Some new LED sequential side repeaters as one was split and letting water in.

I’ve also had to replace the windscreen washer pump as that had failed prior to its last MOT back in September. You can get at the pump by removing the inner arch liner without removing the wheel, but I did as it is a lot easier, especially when fitting the new pump as it’s a two hand job really.

There’s two washer bottles on the 350z one each side and I always thought that one was for the rear and one for the the front. But as every day is a school day and what I now no is.  The one the passenger side is for the headlight washers with its own pump and the one on the drivers side has two separate pumps for front and rear. With the pump which I needed to replace on the right for the front windscreen

Old pump versus new and some nice new MOTUL screen wash, just because.
Cheers opieoils for supplying that. :thumbs:

Right not the biggest mod in the world ! I was finding it hard to undo the oil cap more so since fitting the plenum spacer as it lifts the engine cover up making it awkward to get a grip on it. Also w

Good to know. 

 

How can the one pump with one outlet serve for both front and rear jets?

Some washer motors are valved, the new Jazz as an example. One motor on the bottle that does front and rear, bit of a pain in the backside to be honest as they're far too delicate

And yet interestingly the Z had two washer tanks, one for the front and rear screens and one for the headlights. I also spot x3 pumps, Jap cars ay.

I hate the headlamp washer jetst.

Spraying screenwash all over the bonnet:surrender:.

 

Always nice to see owners post up tips on repairs :thumbs:

Ditto.

I Don’t even like using the windscreen washers if I can help it and if I have too, I’ll turn the lights off if possible so the headlamp washer jets don’t operate! :wacko:
I'm guessing that why the pump packed up, from lack of use and had seized. :lol:

you’ve answered your own question mate, sorry my explanation perhaps wasn’t too  clear.
