Thermo fans

6 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hello I am new here so I do not know what I am doing but I need some advice.I have a 2004 350z z33 roadster that I just bought from a friend. When I was bringing the car home through Sydney she started to get a bit warm & it seems the thermo electric fans are seized.I priced replacement & they are very expensive,are there any alternate options like compatible fans from other cars such as Skylines? I am also looking for a roof & drivers electric seat switch.I would really appreciate any help you can give me.

Nissan USA did a TSB for the thermo fans quite a while ago.  They extended the warranty for cars with certain vin numbers.  The fans were from a batch of faulty build.

when both my fans went I approached Nissan Australia and they denied the problem .  Proper imbeciles.  $500 each they wanted.  I told them to stick it.

I do ski trips to North America so the timing was right I picked 2 for US$ 300 and brought them back.

If you can try http://www.z1motorsports.com/.   Or

https://conceptzperformance.com/
 

They both have been used by zclub forum members in the past and have been very reliable. Iv used Z1 a few times also. Do your research, they both should be able source the fans for you.

 

good luck

Thankyou pez5 for replying to my post. I ended up doing much searching at wreckers for fans & came across some alternatives. The Nissan x-trail & Pulsar set ups will have the same size & dimensions & fits into the origional shroud nicely there is also a Mitsubishi Outlander (2002).So there are cheaper alternatives out there,I am pleased to say.For me this was imperative. I have installed the fans & they are working as they should. I also had a sticky drivers seat control and found contact cleaner fixed that problem.This car was bought from a friend who did not really take it out so it has not really seen enough use which brings about such issues as I have been finding.Now to tackle the roof & hopefully we will be sitting pretty!

      Hi Rodd, Im in Newcastle and congrats on the purchase. I havent met many other Zed owners on this forum from Newie. You are in the right place if you want to learn more about the Zed as i have found being pretty much a novice. Cheers Harry Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

      Hi Elvis, I know your post was from last year but did you ever settle on a CBE? I just bought a roadster and looking at doing something very similar shortly.

      Just bought a 2012 370Z red roadster, via a long road trip from the Whitsundays.  Just love the car the more I drive it. I have always loved Zeds, ever since I was a kid playing soccer and my coach bought a 260Z and took me for drive to game one Sat morning.  I also owned 260Z for about 12 years which I thoroughly restored.  No mods or anything else done etc my new plates. Keen on a new exhaust at some stage. I  Joined the Z club to learn more about the car, share stories etc and hopefully do the odd weekend drive with fellow members. Are there many Newcastle Zed owners out there….. Cheers, Rodd

      Thanks Bry I can't take credit though, previous owner put them on, one of the main reasons I bought this particular example!
