AC compressors interchangeable between M35 and other models?

Postby papilgeephd » Sun Mar 31, 2019 3:32 pm

Hey all,

I'm looking to replace the clutch assembly on my AC compressor sometime soon but am having trouble finding parts for an 07 M35X... at least according to the sites that list the part.

My question: is the compressor the same as with other Nissan/Infiniti models with the VQ35DE from the same generation/model year? Meaning, could I buy parts for an Altima (for example) and have them work with my M?

TIA

I'm assuming you've also looked for 2006 and 2008, 2009 and 2010? Those should all be the same if I had to venture a guess.

Yep, and I can't find any clutch assemblies for any Ms. Or Gs or any other Infiniti models for that matter.
Altimas, Maximas, Muranos, and Quests, all day.

I would do some research and cross reference the model numbers on the AC components in different VQ cars. Make an educated guess on your findings from there.

I remember researching this a few years ago when I replaced the clutch on my 2007 M45 and found no comparable compressors. I first used the clutch that is listed on ebay: see FAQ for my How-To on that. After that finally gave out, I had to pony up the money for the whole compressor. I tried ordering the 2003 M45 compressor because it was a third of the price, but that was a no-go. It’s funny that it’s still a VK45DE but has all these different parts.
