There isn't a formal TSB or recall on it, but there is a well-known problem among many early 350Z's manual transmissions. What symptoms are you experiencing?sorry to re-post recalls but i wanted to know if there was a recall for the transmission on th 03 350 and if so could someone direct me to a link, thanks

no, it doesnt stay in gear. sometimes it will pop out of 5th.There was no formal recall or TSB on the 03 trannys even though Nissan is aware of them being problematic. Everybody has been swaping their trannys with the 009 model (newer) under thier factory powertrain warranty. If you are past the warranty then you have to pay out of pocket from here on out. Could you explain more about throwing out 5th? Are you saying that it doesn't stay in gear? Is it hard to shift from one gear to the next?
no, it doesnt stay in gear. sometimes it will pop out of 5th.
it has 47k and i bought it used, the clutch was going out bout 2 months after i got it, u think the warrenty will cover that?Sounds like you may have a problem with your shift linkage. How many miles are on the car? Why was the clutch replaced? Either way you have to to drop that tranny again to resolve your issue.

I had the same issue on the 5th gear popping out, but that is after installed my fidanza flywheel and act clutch kit. And then after getting fustrated I bought a fidanza short shifter. WHICH I DON"T RECOMMEND CAUSE GETTING INTO REVERSE SUCKED MAJOR DONKEY ASS!! But after i got pissed with the short shifter and said screw it and reinstalled my factory. I notice one. It was much easier to shift and that it wasn't popping out of 5th.. And I figured it was just a positing issue. Don't know if that helps.. just sharing my experience.. Which is funny also that we are talking about transmission cause right now my issue lately is that going into 5th while getting on it it grinds into 5th. Then at times, not always, at parking and then going into reverse it make a weird noise. LIke a rattle. But I keep thinking it just that it's related to the clutch setup.
Will nissan automatically replace the tranny with the newer updated model? My Z is at nissan right now for tranny #3 and ive got 32k on it. Im really getting tired of this problem. First time 2nd gear was grinding really bad, now 2nd tranny will only go into 6th if you double clutch. So hopefully Ill be getting another trans out of it. Let me know about the newer trans. I would like to bring this up with nissan. Thanks
Ok, so i just got off the phone with the dealership, and they are saying that I shouldnt be going from 4th to 6th anyway(which is when it grinds) so they told me that there is nothing they can do. So I just called nissan north america to file a claim(again) to get the dam thing warrantied again and they will be contacting me with a solution either Thursday or Friday. I think that you should never have to go through this crap with a car like the Z and with only 30k on it. I have been loyal to Nissan with the past 6 nissans ive owned and I have never had as many problems as I have with the Z. Now i love the car and yea i will never get rid of it but something has to be done about their customer service/satisfaction and warranty procedures. Please tell me some of you go from 4th to 6th when ur cruising or accelerating? Either way, it never grinded when i would do the same thing with the old trans. so I need them to something about this asap!
