Hey i'm about to purchase an 04Z does anyone know where i can find an 03 nav cubby so i can just swap them out. A DIY would be nice, unless its just a simple swap?

well.. problem is the dash colors are not the same... the 03 is a grey while the 04 is almost black... the mechanical swap is easy though.. i did it on mine (although i painted it PPW to match the car.)

It **might** be possible to completely disassemble the nav door and use the 04 panel on an 03 door mechanism.. i am 50% sure this will work (size is the same, but not sure if the mounting is the same...)

so your options are:

1.replace entire center console with 03 (pretty expensive)
2.see if panel will swap between the door mechanisms
3.swap the nav compartment and paint the console

you can buy the compartment from nissan, but its going to cost an arm and a leg.

i would recommend first trying to find one used (off a wrecked z)

oh i see. I just want the 03 door because it retracts and the 04 door just hangs out (fugly). what did you use to do your mechanical swap?
