370z soft top replacement

7 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

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!

I'm not an expert in soft tops, but is the little tear fixable?

It probably is but I'm pretty particular about my toys. I ended up finding an aftermarket top in the states for about 1500 delivered and Nissan Australia will do the oem top for 3000 installed. That's actually not bad for a genuine lid - they wanted 18000 for the top on my old 350 because they wanted to replace the whole mechanism so I went aftermarket and did it myself. 3000 is OK. At least then I'll have warranty on the kit and the install.

    • RAYS 19" RIM REPAIRS
      By Stephen Sweeney · Posted
      Hi guys, Having recently purchased my 2011 370Z in immaculate condition, except gutter rash on 2 wheels, I researched a business to repair same online. Should you be in the Newcastle area I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND Rim Repair Newcastle. The business operator Lee is originally from Texas USA, and has been doing this work for 20 years in total, and his professionalism and quality of work bears this out. I was more than impressed by his work, completing the repairs with tyres on rims, masking everything meticulously before the painting process, completing same with a clear over the top.

      I had same today. I had it happen once before and found the hammer hit on the metal box got me going... I figured that was the last of it. I was not aware of the fuse pull once you get started. It happened again today and RAA towed to Main North Nissan. I now know about the fuse pull but it's too late. Quoted $2300 to fix. If Nissan won't cover it, I will pull it out and try and fix myself...

      Hi mate,   Welcome. I run a very stock 2009 370z and have had zero problems. I think it depends on how you drive it and what you do to it. The only thing I can warn you about is the very limited rear 180deg view, e.g., behind your ears back. That said, its a sports car so kinda to be expected and you will learn to cope. Cheers.
