Hi all, just would like to introduce myself, names JJ from Adelaide, Purchased my lovely 370z roadster. 

 

After taken the delivery of the vehicle, and whilst driving I heard this rattling sound and also tick feedback whilst the foot  on the clutch and brake pedal.

 

I WAS SOOO WORRIED and took it back to the dealership and to Nissan both said it was normal. Which i still wasn't too convince, after searching on forums and websites,

which it seems quiet normal due to the mass fly wheel...which a quiet fair few people has the same symptoms.  I hope this is certainly true.

 

Hope all member can enlighten me in the near future of mods and the way to maintain my Z.

 

 

Have a great day all

 

 

 

JJ

Congratulations on the purchase of your new 350ZR and a big welcome to the forum. Hope you upload some photo's so as we can all see just what you've bought. As regards to the rattling noise, yes a lot of our cars suffer from this particular noise, it's usually attributed to the DMFW. Hope you enjoy many happy K's of driving and reading the numerous informative threads on this forum.  :book:

Welcome TemtaionZ,

 

Yeah our flywheels are quite noisy, not too much you can do. If you look at upgrading your clutch and going to single mass flywheel be prepared for more noise. Other than that welcome aboard! Look forward to seeing pics of your new Z :)

Be careful mate, a few weeks ago I watched a woman slam the door of my car and tear off. Many jealous people about.

Yeah I did too, and the carpark was utterly empty. The cow came and parked next to me while I was shopping, clearly to do that on purpose.

 

Real nasty pieces of work around here, one of my mates had his V35 graffitied on with red spray this weekend :(

But it is annoying when they do

      I'm in Sydney unfortunately, was about to suggest that though as we're planning a meet this Sunday.

      I'll see what I can do, but like I said, bit hard to find somewhere where you can do it without drawing attention etc
    • P0011 Code (2012 370Z)
      By Trent Bray · Posted
      Anybody have experience with the error code P0011? car is currently with the mechanic...unable to find an actual issue everything is checking out and few things been checked/ replaced but car is still not running right. Initial easier fixes through troubleshooting or stripping it down to access the gasket behind (unsure if it was the galley gasket) are yet to get it going, timing, valves, actuators etc. seem fine as checked once pulled apart a bit... mechanic said he had one or two more things to try then may have to get it to Nissan dealer. Could it be a simpler fix they have overlooked like oil pressure/ filter? but assuming they had already gone their through process of elimination..
    • 370z soft top replacement
      By Cam · Posted
      Hi guys. I bought a 370 roadster recently and when i was checking it out i noticed a little tear starting. i didnt think much of it because my 350 soft top replacement was pretty straight forward, there was plenty of DIY literature and the tops were all over ebay. Now i own the thing, i went looking to buy a replacement top and....err....no literature and next to nothing available. crap. Help? Suggestions? Cheers!
