2005 nissan note owners manual



Hey everyone. I always try to give back to the forums whenever possible.
I have acquired the Factory Service Manual ("FSM") for the 2000-2005 Altimas and have made them available for free download. No gimmicks, no jumping through hoops; just a good old fashioned click & download.

If you find that the download doesn't work, let me know.
Each year is in a respective file. Simply extract the contents to a folder and read the "Instructions.txt" if ya can't figure it out on your own. (If ya can't, then you probably aren't going to work on your own car either. )

I suggest doing a right-click and "Save As. "

The factory service manuals (I have mine for the 2006 year Altima which is well over 2500 pages) are a joke. I hope the Nissan technicians don't have to work from them. They have their own separate on line manuals which I hope are a lot more detailed than the factory service manuals that Nissan sells to the public. As an example nowhere will you find in the FSM how to remove any sensor. Some sensors are ridiculously easy to remove while others are ridiculously difficult. The index of the manual is a joke as are all of the diagrams. The diagrams should be cadcam architectural spec drawings not the kiddy drawings that Nissan has supplied in the FSM.

Not that it matters since this thread hasn't been touched in 2.5 years and since the linked FSM are provided for free. But what exactly are you looking for the manuals to state more explicitly? Expecting the manual to tell you how to operate a certain type of pinch clip to remove a harness from a sensor? I imagine that if you are attempting to do a job yourself you can look at a sensor clip and figure out how it's secured. If not, maybe you should have someone else work on your car. Anyone who goes far enough to get a FSM should already have enough shadetree mechanic knowledge to be able to utilize the information contained therein. And any ASE mechanic would likely be able to peruse it and go, "OK. uh-huh. do-do-do. yep. OK. Got it."
I looked in the 2005 manual linked above for the Crankshaft Position Sensor and the H02 sensor. I found both listed and noted in the exploded ("kiddy"?) diagrams. Not sure why your 2006 manual (with over 2500 pages. ) would be different unless it's not genuine Nissan.
Anyone who can't follow exploded diagrams won't do any better with the cad/architectural drawings, which IMHO are effectively the same thing, just with a different level of rendering. If anything, it sounds like you are describing a Factory Assembly Manual, not a Service Manual.
Free is free and in this case, still better than nothing. "For everything else, there's Mastercard." And YouTube. And these forums. And.

There are many diy articles in the FAQ section that detail how to do certain repairs because the FSM was either vague or nonexistent on the proper detailed step by step procedure. If the FSM was any good we wouldn't need the dozens of detailed how to posts that are on here. My original post slamming the FSM remains as is despite your Nissan cheering.
