300ZX Convertible info needed


Recommended Posts

Hi guys and gals, greetings from Sunny and stinking bloody hot Brisbane Queensland Australia.

I have a 1993 300zx Convertible, and i am having an issue with working out how to go about replacing a broken cable.

The cable is the fuel door actuator cable, it has a broken piece of plastic which has caused it to stop working properly.

One of the issues is Nissan Australia will not touch " imports " funny seeing how every Nissan they sell is bloody well imported,

so i can't get help off them and the fact there are bugger all " Verts " in Aussie. So i am struggling to get parts or help.

Is anyone selling said cable, and have any idea do i need to remove the ragtop and framing to get access to the cable. 

 

Cheers in advance for any help and advice

 

Steve

Have you tried a look through the two main US forums? There's a considerable amount more verts in the US than in the UK. 

It's just one long cable so probably just a case of patiently stripping out everything on that side and then methodically removing the old one and pushing in the new one. Although I'm betting I've massively over simplified that! 

Now - 1999 Midnight Purple NA.

Then - 1995 Slicktop NA - sold 2016

The japanese verts  (ie all the ones in the uk) use the electrical release with solenoids in the boot

banzai breakers ( can be found on uk ebay) were breaking a vert earlier in te year, might still have the bit you need

No not yet, but i will give them a go shortly.   I along with my mechanic have managed to get the cable out, the issue is finding a unbroken one for sale to replace it, and trying to find out if we need to remove the "roof" so to speak off to get access to it as you need those damn japanese pixie sized hands to get in there .

This may or may not help but is a point to ponder, I had a 1991 MX5 Eunos once and that had a similar opener switch to pop the fuel filler lid, in the same location, share or have similar parts ? 

Hmmmm not sure if they are similar or the same, but it's worth having a look at. Cheers.
