    Hi , I have a 1991 300zx twin turbo manaual and need a new air con compressor. Does any one know if the compressor for my car can be interchanged with any other Nissan (non 300zx ) models .

    I know left hand drive models have different mountings so it must be for a right hand drive model?

    Alternatively does anyone know where I can get a rebuild done preferably in Brisbane, I have tried many air con places without luck.

    Or last resort anyone have a working compressor for sale.

    thanks
    MIKEA

    I doubt the AC compressor is exclusive to the Z32 but others might correct me. Meanwhile, look for an identification plate on the compressor, it might give you the brand and maybe the manufacturer's part number. Google search on whatever you find.

    JDM Japan and Nissan Parts advisor advise it was supplied by an outside company to Nissam
    JDM Japan advise they can get an OEM compressor part number 27630, but the cost is AUD $1990 plus freight
    A bit of a rip off

    Hit the wreckers mate, look for nissans round the age of your car that have air conditioning on board. Its a good bet you'll find something to suite.

    I just checked the ID plate from an AC compressor that came from a JDM 2+0 manual, not sure if it was a TT or NA. I spent an hour washing the grease and gunk off it to find the ID markings then photographing it so you defs owe me a beer one day :)

    From the compressors' ID plate -
    Made by Hitachi. TYPE MJS170 / 6FA
    Serial No. 90701903
    Part number 253157
    Refrigerant R-12
    Lubricant FREOL S-83, 150CC (5.1 oz) OR SUNISO-5GS

    Overall length including pulley & clutch approx 210 mm
    Pulley outer flange diameter approx 147 mm

    I've got some pics of it, aint got time to upload them right now sorry.

    Wreckers ftw, they're Op Shops for older car parts.
    Never mind the bargain prices, some stuff just isn't made any more.

    A few years back the clutch on the wifes' 2004 X-trail AC compressor failed. Not available seperately, about $1,400 for a complete compressor plus fitting / re-gassing etc. Off to the wreckers, a hundy $ for a used comp. Swapped the clutches over in-situ, didn't have to de-gas and remove the original comp. Still going fine.
