Many years ago, I wrote a post which gave a fairly detailed explanation on how to decode Nissan part numbers, with a view to enabling users to identify parts and model application from part number alone. This is useful when presented with new old stock parts at a swap meet or autojumble, or when all you have is a stock list or printout.
Whilst the information given was undoubtebly useful, I felt it was time to update it. So I have reworked the post, giving additional information along with new, larger images and added a downloadable (and printable) PDF version of the all important Part Type tables… the data that allows you to tell what model a particular part might fit.
