I think this must be normal on the Zs. I have an 05 now with 19,000 miles and since new its had a chatter when releasing the clutch, the whole car shakes a bit. I have taken it to the dealer and they couldn't detect anything. It is annoying but I have gotten used to it now.
#541 of 549 Windows Going Down While removing wax

Mike in Fl. Here. I was rubbing the was off of my 04 E the other day. As I removed the wax from the Passengers door, middle and just a little forward the windows both came down on there on. Help if possible or did I just hot the magic spot? I reached in thru the window and pulled the button back up and nothing happened. I got into the drivers side, put the key into the ignition and rolled them back up, no further incidents since.

dat2 thanks for your response. I need to correct what I said in my first email. The chatter occurs when I'm engaging and not releasing the clutch when shifting from first to second. And it occurs around 2500 - 3000 RPM. It also doesn't occur every time; but more so when the car is still cold. It shifts okay, but just doesn't sound normal, like something is loose. If my dealer finds something is wrong, I'll let you know. Thanks again.

Well it was my motor...they replaced it and I had to pay for it...$385 I think was the total...I have taken it back 2x since ! When you open the door the window is supposed to go down a few inches and then close automatically. Well, apparently the service dept DIDNT do that properly - the window was wobbling and hitting the top of the car frame..I brought it back & they adjusted it-the wobbling stopped but the window still does not go down the same distance as it did originally. I took it back again...they tried AGAIn and still cant get it to drop the same distance as it was designed from the beginning. SO I have to accept it as is...or until I find a really qualified NISSAN mechanic. I did call Nissan too...but that's a waste of time. My 2nd problem is I went to DISCOUNT TIRE and replaced all tires and they scratched the heck out of my wheels....so now they are going to repair them somehow.

You may have noticed that we're moving toward smaller, more focused discussions. I've pulled some messages from the last several pages here and put them into some new discussions to get started.
Please go to the top level of the GTO board and look for an existing topic or create a new one if you don't see something suitable. Here's the link: Nissan 350Z.
