  1. akuma69 added a post in a topic Aircon recycle/outside air button does not work   

    Problem fixed. Behind the controls is a WHITE connector that was not touching all the terminals very well. Used some tape to make sure its a tight fit and walla everything works!

    Which clutch kit to get?
    I have 05 Z and my clutch I think is dieing out. I dont know what clutch kit it has at the moment. It could be dual mass or single mass.
    I'm after non button clutches for everyday driving. Pedal feel to be not hard. Car is NA stock. Thinking about going light fly wheel for quick revs rise and fall.
    since i dont know what's in the car right now, Exedy said to buy a kit.

    so whatever is there, it can be replaced with the above.
    Is that a good clutch/flywheel combo? Is there other brands that are cheaper but do same job? JWT? NPC?
    Post some kits that you guys are using.
    Thanks

    Aircon recycle/outside air button does not work
    I think maybe something wrong with my aircon.

    https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSmvRwP1S_rHgRaoUFcxYb7cea7ymvZh4eL5KItd9ekHc4g9cItGQ

    See image above.
    Left knob i set to second position from the left (blowing feet and face)
    Right knob i set to AUTO.
    Middle knob i set to 25 degrees. Aircon airflow comes from outside car as highlighted in the knob. When i press this button it does not change to recycle mode.
    Only way to change it to recycle mode is when i change the degress to below 21. When its below 21, the mode automatically changes to recycle mode. Press the button to change it back to outside air doesn't work.

    So looks like i can only change the outside air/recycle only by adjusting the temp and not from pressing the button.

    Is this an issue? or this is how it is? my car is 2005 350z

    Thanks everyone

    Ok tried it out. There is no slippage. So I guess my clutch is ok?

    this the one you bought?
  9. akuma69 added a post in a topic Replacing clutch, need advice   

    The way I test this is. i travel on gear 2 at say 30 km/h. Then while staying at same speed, I quickly let go of accelerator, press clutch, change to gear 5 or 6, then let go of clutch fully, and then fully press the accelerator. Whenever I do this, the engine struggles but no slippage. Means my clutch is ok? Is this a good test?

    apart from getting a lats workout from pulling down the hatch, would there be any other issues?

    The high pressure ones look good.
    There are guys who put in the HP ones in youtube. Has anyone used the Ultra high pressure ones?

    How do I check if my clutch is dieing? I have a high catch point but it has been like that 2 years now.
  14. akuma69 added a post in a topic Anyone had their Z not respond to remote?   

    i had the issue happen again last night. Locked car with remote to go shops. Came back 15 mins later, tried remote doesn't work. Opened car with key and started engine. Everything works fine. Tried remote lock/unlock, doesn't work. Kept trying for 2 minutes still didn't work. So had to physically lock the car with key and went to another store. Came back 20 minutes later and tried unlocking via remote and it works.... weird.
    My dad said most likely its a flat alarm battery and to replace that. Gonna replace and see.
