The 350Z is due a service - a big one with a cambelt change. I'll get a quote from the Nissan dealer in Swindon, but can anyone recommend an independent Nissan specialist in the area?

The 350Z doesn't have a cambelt.

Really? That's good news then, the service schedule appears to say that it needs changing at 5 years / 54,000 miles. The schedule covers a number of models, and it isn't very clear what applies to which.

The VQ35DE engine, as found in 350Z and other Nissans & Infinitis, has timing chains rather than cam belts.



It still has belts for the ancillaries - power steering pump, alternator and air-con compressor.

Yep, a quick Google agrees with you. This is what misled me:



It mentions that the 350Z doesn't need the fuel filter changing, but neglects to do the same for cambelt. Thanks, Nissan rolleyes
