  1. Hi Everyone, Sorry to revisit an old post but I was hoping if anyone can offer an opinion if they have had the same problem !! I have a Series 2 mirror that will fold out but not in. Any Ideas...???? Could it be the circuitry on the actually limit Switch Circuit Board, Resistor etc There was a Contact Tab loose on both mirrors on the Car, so I repositioned them and glued them in respectively with 100% success on the Passenger Side but unfortunately, on the Drivers side the Mirror only works one way. This was the opposite of what the Drivers Mirror was actually doing before I pulled it apart (I think) and the Passenger Mirror wouldn't move at all either way. On a Series 1 I did it was a little different though and the main problems was the Motor was seized and had to be prised apart, and the inside of the case was cleaned up with some emery paper and lots of WD40. It was effective but a slightly different problem then this one here. From my memory you could get to the motor as an individual part but on the Series 2 I can't seem to get the Motor out of the case as the Driveshaft doesn't come out of the slot in the plastic case.
  2. Hi Everyone, This is an excellent tutorial on how to fix it and I have done 3 mirrors in total now over the years, the first one being done before this Thread was even available and I followed my nose. However I now have a Series 2 mirror that will fold out but not in. Any Ideas...???? Could it be the circuitry on the actually limit Switch Circuit Board, Resistor etc There was a Contact Tab loose on both mirrors, so I repositioned them and glued them in respectively with 100% success on the Passenger Side but unfortunately, on the Drivers side the Mirror only works one way.

  3. Hello everyone, Just looking for a decent version of the following; Leather Gear Knob Gear Lever Surround/Boot Rear Boot Trim that Covers the Battery This is for a 1997 Series 2 but I think the parts are the same... and the Boot Trim looks the same colour as my old 1995 R33. Cheers in advance... hope someone can help. I'm in Geelong, Victoria.
  4. Hi everyone, sorry for revisiting this old thread but it is the only one that had activity on it when I did a search for the Oil Pump Part Number I need. My Oil Pump has failed and according to Nissan it is 150105L800 for a 1997 RB25DET. So it seems that the N1 Pump is interchangeable with this part Number and it is better because it has hardened gears inside the pump and is less likely to fail. Think the N1 updated part number is 1501024U01 (according to the Net) but I have no idea if this will fit the same way. Any ideas... ? From what I understand it needs a Crankshaft Collar to work properly as there appears to be excessive clearance but if the collar is too large it could cause the pump to crack. So for a daily driver, pretty much standard, do you guys think it might be safer to go to the standard item? It makes similar pressure and flow I am presuming and I don't need to worry about Thermal Expansion of a Crankshaft Collar ? Cheers Stephen
  5. No I haven't... car is just parked for the moment. I will do this soon though. The one cam lobe I can see looks really good so hopefully all the bearings and cam is the same.
  6. Sorry I misread your first reply... I didnt see the words at the back of it. All good cheers.
  7. There are no visible signs of damage and it has been only ran for seconds not even a minute. Sure it will be fine.
  8. Going to try that first... bathe the top in some oil and then add some cleaner and see if the noise disappears or changes.
  9. Thanks Callan, From what I understand, normal service history means regular oil changes although, I am not sure the grade of oil. Coolant looks good, there are no leaks and apart from a couple of broken exhaust manifold studs the engine appears to be in good order aside the poor clatter from the top end and the obvious lack of oil in the head. So there are restrictors in the head for the oil supply? Where are they and can you clear, or change them from under the rocker covers? Good idea on pulling the rocker covers off and having a look... I will try that soon. Stephen
  10. Thank you Gentleman... much appreciated, I will try to do the best without pulling the lens off the light. So are the bolts to the shroud behind the bumper, via the wheel arches I presume? I can't see anything obvious from the front or underneath, on how to get the light shrouds off. I thought perhaps the light shrouds clipped off from the front.
  11. Hello, As you can see I have some moisture inside the Driving Lamp on a R33 Series 2... does anyone have some advice on how to remove the Lamp? Do I have to remove the Bumper or does the shroud clip off from the front? Any advice appreciated... don't want to break anything. Stephen
  12. Sorry to hijack the thread.... but do you know how the oil feed is on a RB25DET... I have no oil inside the rocker covers? Stephen
  13. R33 Series 2 1997 RB25DET Rattle from cold coming from top end. Doesn't reduce, as it gets warmer. Never run for more than a minute as it sounds scary. Oil Cap off whilst running has no oil sloshing or splashing inside. Cam lobe on show is almost dry Oil Pressure on guage seems to stay a little elevated Normal Service History and Oil/Filter changes Oil is a little dark but not too bad Noise all of a sudden came on according to Driver Car has now been parked gathering dust 160k on odometer. Blocked Oil Feed Galleries? Is there a screen filter installed somewhere in the head/block or into camshaft followers ? Where does the oil enter the Camshafts Any ideas... apart from Oil Flush and Change. Is there something that could be blocking the oil access to the top of the head ? Very perplexing...
  14. thanks all for the very knowledgable, constructive criticism... I did not research what others are charging for a set of these wheels... but I know what it cost me for this set. Had them for a long time... and they are immaculate, sorry if your set of ABC123 are rarer and cheaper. Guess I will just drop the price a bit, but the paint alone was a 1K, so don't expect me to give them away. Only taking up space, boxed in the corner of the garage.
