M35 Oil and Fuel Change

Had some spare time over the holiday break to do your standard Oil and Fuel filter change.

The oil change is pretty straight forward. Sorry for lack of pictures....

Apparently the factory spec of the oil for M35 are 7.5W30

So anything close enough will do. ie 10W30 or 10W40 its a matter of preference and driving style, The M35 is now my shopping trolley - where I use to enjoy giving the R33 a fang around the corners - so chose the oil to suit your needs. You will need about 4.5 Litres.


Oil Filter Part numbers : Basically same as Nissan S15 : Z445

 Z445 Oil Filter

You can get OEM ones from here also from JustJaps

Once oil change was complete, I thouht that the M35 used the same parts as orther Nissans, S15 etc, thought that the fuel filter will be the same also. However trying to find the fuel filter had me scatching my head for 30 Mins as I tried to trace the fuel lines.

In the end, I found out that NM35 Stagea do not have fuel filters in the engine bay. They use fuel screen and it it inside the fuel tank together with the fuel pump.

Fuel Filter Part Number = 16400-4M405

M35 Stagea Air Filter

Replacing the standard filter with Blitz Filter is pretty straight forward. Remove all the clips off the Air Filter, and the snokle for the intake.

Remove the Top Lid of the filter and screwpoints holding it down.

Now the tricky /scratch your head part ? Took me a while to figure this out as I didnt want to break anything. Basically once you remove all the bolts that you can see. Pull the filter up, it will require some force.

There is two grommets holding the filter in place.

M35 Stagea Air Con Filter

The Stagea that I owned reeked of Smoke ( Smoking is bad ) so no matter how much deoderant I spay, the smell of smoke will longer. Car has been smoke free and deoderized, however the smell is still there when I use the Air Con.

So you can replace the filter, I got a Bltz Aircon filter online after doing some search. Part number HA202.

To install it you have to remove the passerger side glove box. Start off by removing the lining on there passender door and the kick panel. these are clipped in and pops off.

Open the glove box and remove the four screws

Careful here, If you pull too hard the plastic will snap.

1- Unclip

2 - Do not leaver it more then a inch as the clip will snap

3 - Pull out.

4 - Replace filter ( filter should indicate / show which side is up )


Reverse the process - to put the Glove box back In

M35 Stagea  Filthy filter

Throw out dirty filter, Air con still has some traces of smoke smell. Smoking is a filthy habit :-(.


Good thing about the new filter is that it can be washed and re-used.

R33 Power Window Motor

Nissan Skyline R33 power window replacement guide.

Replacement powerwindow motor can be sourced from Nissan Dealer ( new $450 or 2nd hand one from EBay $99 ).

Tips and tricks before going out and getting a power window motor.

If your window is stuck halfway and not fully up, Take the door trim off and hit the power window motor with a hammer or screwdriver to losen the brushes. This will temporary work to allow you to close your window.

hit here point

If you have access to a relay from a similar car ( skyline, s13 silvia, GTR ) you can test the relay.

Last test to do, is to applie power directly to the power window motor. Unclip the connector and apply direct 12v to the motor. You can use a 12v car jumper battery pack.

Taking the Trim off

To take the Trim off, pop the plastic trim where the door leaver is out can use a screwdriver.

Undo the screw in the door handle and pull the powerwindow control out

Undo the 3 screew and then pull carefully until the clips pop out.


trim screw points

Once it is off, carefully take the plastic sheet off and then tape the window to the door so that it will not drop. You will also need to take out the speaker for accessing the Power window motor.

Now the fun part, you will have to feel around for where the screws holding the power window motor in. Be carefull not to round the screws or you are screwed.

You can take out the screws with a stubby screwdriver or the funny shaped screw driver that looks like to "L" stuck together or an L shape screw driver for more leverage.

Inside door


It may take a bit of effort to take the power window motor out. Three screws hold the motor on the inside and two screws hold it on on the outside.

Finally the motor is out. To install the replacement motor, do the reverse.

old power window motor

If anyone can tell me where I can source the brushes inside that brush against the armature, I would be greatly appreciated. I will then be able to show you how to recondition the powerwindow motor.

Then main cause of the powerwindow motor burning out in this case was that the powerwindow button was faulty on closer inspection. Symtopns were if your power window button does not centre after closing/opening driver side window and you continue to hear the motor wind once the window has fully closed/open. The replacement motor died same sameway within 3 months.
