Vent motor update?

Hi all, I was just wondering what year did they change up the actuator motor for the vent / defrost on our Titans? The part number for the correct one is 27743-ZP00A. This has been a big problem in the past and Nissan must have upgraded the motor at one point so I was wondering the year they changed them? Mine is a 05 and it snaps like crazy and want to change it. Thought that an auto recycler would have them available for say the 06 and up? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

Re: Vent motor update?

I doubt nissan changed the part, they just changed the part number. It's pretty common that a newer part number supercedes an older one. Call yer dealer and they can confirm if it's the same part.

Edit: You mentioned recycler as in buying a used part. It's like $28. new. Buy a new one.

There should be a tsb out for it. My 11 has one and they fixed it for free in about an hour.

He has an 05 so I doubt it will be free.
The TSB call for the same part number listed in OP's thread 27743ZP00A

Wow here's the procedure to change it out. Look in TSB

Re: Vent motor update?

Thanks so much for the help. I will check with the dealer and see what they want. Thing is up here in Canada the dealers generally gouge you big time! If the part is $28.00 in the US it will be $150.00 up here! ( I might be exaggerating a bit but we will see) I found a Nissan recycler up here that is reasonable, I needed 2 back up sonar sensors and they want $130.00 wholesale each from the dealer and I got them for $25.00 each from the recycler and they worked perfect.

Oh Canada! Didn't realize you were on the north side of the border. I've got buddies up there who go through the same stuff. I don't understand why cars and parts are so expensive up there. I guess it's to offset the health care system. j/k.

Re: Vent motor update?

They get away with it because they can! They charge more for most anything, tires for example, I ordered a set of 4 tires for my car from the tire rack for $650.00 shipped to my door in Central Alberta from Reno and the very same tires here were on sale 4 for 3 at $1200.00!! It's crazy! I can order parts on line and save a bundle even with shipping from US to Canada. I did however pick up a vent motor from the local dealer for $35.00 my cost wholesale so that's not so bad. Not looking forward to crawling under the dash this weekend to change it though..................
