Well I guessed the rest of us who just joined this community are SOL. I just purchased my dream car after drooling on it for many many years. So I guess I have to cough up $400 for an FSM from Nissan or is there an other way?

From my original post:

https://www.nissan-techinfo.com/

A 24-hour "purchase subscription" will cost $20 and will allow you to download as many FSMs and TSBs as your bandwidth will allow. If you're slow like me, a 30-day subscription is $75.
So again, to legally purchase your FSM, you need to do it through Nissan and it'll cost you $20. Since Nissan North America is asserting copyright, and since I don't want to see my350z.com get any flack, my best advice to you is to cough up the $20 and do it the way Nissan wants you to do it. I wish I had something better to offer, but for what it's worth, it's not going to cost you $400.

Hello Zakmartin. Actually you gave me the good news. THANK YOU. I was thinking about saving some $$ to get that one. So appreciate your help in this regard.

Zackmartin: Do I need to buy Nissan Publications and it shows me a menu that I fill in by typing service manual for 2006 350Z and it says no records found? Am I doing something wrong?

Go to the link at https://www.nissan-techinfo.com/ and click on the View Nissan Publications box.

Under the Search Publications section, choose the appropriate selections from the drop down menus, then click on "Search"

You'll see your model year's service manual pop up as a selection with three icons next to it: one that looks like an eyeball with a red cross through it, one that looks like a CD-ROM and one that looks like a book. Click on the eyeball with the red cross through it and it'll send you to the Online Subscriptions page.

From here, you'll see a Table of Online Subscription Rates.
1. One Year Subscription $720.00
2. 90 day Subscription $225.00
3. 30 day Subscription $75.00
4. One day Subscription $19.99

Click on the one you want and it will send you to an End User License Agreement that you'll have to accept. From there, you can proceed with the purchase and download all of the .pdf documents that collectively form your Factory Service Manual (FSM).

Using Adobe Acrobat Reader, click on idx.pdf or fwd.pdf to get to a main FSM directory. The file names vary from year to year. As long as your one day subscription is active, have a look at the TSBs and all the other stuff you can download for your car. I'd recommend doing this on a weekend when you have time to collect everything you want.

I hope that helps.

Oh, one last thing, if you'd prefer to own a printed copy of your FSM directly from Nissan, they'll charge you $295 plus shipping. I know it's debatable, but for the number of pages this thing consists of, I don't think it's really that bad of a deal.

For any members out there (and not spies for Nissan, lol) that were not fortunate enough to download everything before they were removed, I came across a site where you can still download all the FSM pdfs for '03-'07. Feel free to pm me and I can reply with the link.

I hope I'm not violating any TOS or doing something illegal with this post... Mods, feel free to remove if so.

Just to echo what I posted in the FSM sticky thread, FSMs are back up and downloadable: https://www.nicoclub.com/FSM/350Z/

For now...
