Where can I get parts?

Well, where would you get parts for any other car?

Most motor factors stock general spares for the Elgrand now. Most service items are available including brakes, bearings and bushes. The BEST place to get your parts from is BMR (http://bmr-automotive.vpweb.co.uk/). He's a member here and will do his best to help. In some cases he may not be the cheapest, but that's because he doesn't sell cheap shit parts that will fail after a few months. He's an enthusiast and a mechanic, the best kind of person to buy from when taking care of your car.

As for other bits like body parts, bumpers, lights, seats etc. You are going to have to go to a breakers yard. There are plenty of places in the UK that are breaking Elgrands. I don't know them all, but there is a good one in York, or there is the Elgrand Warehouse in Cornwall. Expect to pay a lot for body parts. They are big and scarce. An E50 Rider bumper will set you back £600. An E51 Rider bumper will set you back £1000. There's an idea. The best advise here is... don't crash it or prang it! Often repair is cheaper than replacement... so look into quotes from body shops when possible rather than looking for replacements.

Aside from this, the alternative is to get the parts from Japan. This is possible, but expensive. There are a few places you can go to who regularly import parts. Ask them for a quote and they will get them over here as part of a bigger order they are placing. This will help with shipping costs etc. Delivery time from Japan can take a few months though, so don't expect it here next day.

As a closing statement... don't worry too much about it. We have 1400 members and all of them have been able to get what they need.

Hi Karl

I was just viewing the link from BMR Automotive regarding parts. I do all of my own oil changes on our Mitsubishi V6 and my Honda Prelude, so of course, need oil filter and sump plug washers. Question - I had heard that the 3.5 Litre Elgrand motor is the same as that in the Nissan 350Z, is that not the case? I ask because if so, we should be able to source these very basic parts here in Australia?

But - I guess it is possible that the Elgrand filters might need to be smaller to fit into a tighter space?

You'll have to try your local parts suppliers I'm afraid mate, I can't help myself.

Maybe Brian @BMR would post to you, but the shipping and taxes involved will be excessive I would think.

Australia have a big Market for Elgrands, so maybe try contacting some of our Aus members for help?

Is a place to find spare parts in New Zealand? Thanks?
Gidday from Downunder - patoca. What parts are you after - if it's engine parts or engine accessories you should be able to use the Nissan dealers because those parts are shared on other Nissan vehicles with the 3.5-litre engine.

Cheers

For peeps in Melb or Aus generally, Niss4x4 ship Elgrand parts nation wide. They can be a bit of a pain to deal with but they have the most stock.

Almost every part number is listed here in English https://Nissan.epc-data.com/Elgrand/ and you can get exploded part diagrams in the Russian version here https://Nissan.epc-data.com/Elgrand/

This website https://www.amayama.com/en is good for sourcing new parts from Japan, as well as the usual Rakuten, YahooJP etc...

There's a bloke active on the OC FB page called Malcolm Cooper, he is in NZ and would know where to source parts over there.
