Y34 Gloria/cedric Owners Manual In English

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm about to buy a Y34 Gloria because I've wanted one for a fair while now, but never had enough of an excuse to justify one to the Minister for War and Finance. However, the recent lunching of my Stagea engine means I have all the excuse I need to purchase another daily driver. ;)

I seem to remember reading a thread somewhere here (I think it was SAU) about someone who was able to supply an owners manual in English for these cars. If anyone knows where I can get my hands on one, that would be great.

I'm actually looking for how to drive the screen in the car: I have the fundamentals sorted, but heard someone had gone to the trouble of translating most of its functions...

Did you end up working out any of it or get any info???

Any help would be much appreciated regarding the screen menus/buttons and also the japanese buttons on the dash

Thank you in advance for any info available.

Yes: I got the translation pages everyone was talking about: it's by no means a comprehensive manual, but it helps...

PM me your email address and I'll forward it to you.

Good to see another Y34 owner around! Where are you located? Had the car long?

Cheers for that Kouki! I've been away from the forums for awhile!

Ok, so I have some more information for you guys who want to use your iPod/music player in the car...

Get a 3.5mm:RCA cable. Plug the 3.5mm end into your music player, and plug the RCAs into the red and white sockets behind the centre console.

Push the TV button on the dash, then move the little selector knob to the right ( pretty sure it was just one click to the right). You should end up with a blank creen, and audio from the speakers. Just remember to have the volume on your device set relatively high...

i just cleaned out my car and installed a single din sony under the dashboard passenger side.

ipod / iphone / bluetooth / DVD all into one.

then I plugged a reverse camera to it too.

I did this by connecting the RCA at the rear passenger console.

and yes you are right ... TV>right = Video from single din

I can now see my playlist and etc using the iPod/iphone capable Sony single din radio, accessible via the Sony remote too.

pictures to follow soon

oh BTW I cleaned out the melted plastic from my radio panels, the base plastic color thankfully matches my interior, will show some pictures what i meant

I am gonna remove the dashboard and see if I can tweedle the clock time from there, also to see if I can change the color of the gauges, its looks really dated at this time, maybe a white or blue dash should make it look more sweet

Hi guys- sorry: haven't checked this thread for a while: good to see you all got the translation: if anyone has the skills/time to add to the content, please do so: there's a heap more to go!

Kouki- in Rey to your pm, the headlights are the individual-cluster "round" type; my car is a '03 model.

I'm currently sitting in my mech's workshop watching the swap over process for headlights sng grille: it's pretty labour intensive: will report back when complete, but we're hoping it can be done without removal of the front bar...

    • Duncan, Thanks for that. Much appreciated. Cheers, Fred
    • 120mm for a standard r32 gtr or gtst power steer pulley.  
    • Been nothing happening for a while as got the sil80 going and been trying to decide what direction to go but have been doing the important things like painting cam cover and making heat shield for the turbo.  Fitted some more lights to the work area in the shed and converted to LEDs. Heaps better with the extra lights.  Pulled out the ecu and loom this week to start planning a new loom with extra sensors and inputs.  Considering going DBW as liking it on the other car. So will have to send ecu back to link for modding.  Car is booked in to get the engine bay and under side blasted end of July so have to get a move on stripping. 
    • Yep - I have had three different EFR's - and still run an 8474.  All have had this casting issue and I didn't like it either.   The Turbo's perform well - but its disappointing to see this lack of quality control - and yes it does make you naturally wonder if there are other problems that you can't see. I think that Borg Warners attitude to "its fine, and doesn't stop it working" is not a good thing.  As others above have said, other manufacturers seem to get their castings nice and tidy and you would expect that the top of their line be well finished.   Maybe BW should have a read of this thread and think about it for Version 2.0.     PS.  I've had 8374 and 8474 back to back on same engine - and I can say that in my experience the 8474 definitely does not spool as quickly as the 8374.   I can say this from dyno charts, seat of the pants feel, logging and track times.   The 8474 does exactly what you would expect:  Spools a bit later (200-300rpm), and makes a bit more power up top.         
    • Will do, thanks.   Do you know from memory which of these two plug (red marker) is for reverse switch ? also what is other one for ?
