ZD30 Airbox filters

Post by ricster » 20 Nov 2014 14:26

I don't know if anyone else battles to get air filters for the ZD30 Patrols. My 4.2 has a ZD30 Airbox fitted to accommodate the turbo, and other than buying a Nissan air filter at probably some ridiculous price, i have been trying to source a decent filter for my Patrol for ages.

I normally ask my local spares shop to order me a AG1028 GUD filter, which is the correct filter for the ZD30, however GUD will supply you with a Mann & Hummel filter ( C18143 ), which in principal is the same but is not the ideal filter to replace with. The Filter ( Mann & Hummel ) comes in a Mann & Hummel Box with a big GUD sticker stuck on it with the part no AG1028.

Firstly the GUD ( or Nissan ) filter is a steel top and bottom with a rubber sealing ring, with the paper filter medium zig-zagging around it.

Secondly, the Mann & Hummel has a "hard" rubber that holds the zig-zag paper filter together on the top and bottom, and to me that doesn't seal properly, so I fixed some self adhesive foam rubber on the top and bottom of the ZD30 airbox and then put the filter in and landed up squeezing the filter a bit to get the clamps on the airbox to click in. These filters are also not exactly cheap either, so I went on a mission to find something that fits and works. The GUD online catalogue doesn't even list an airfilter for the 3.0 Patrol !!

After hunting around I found a AG 994 filter, which is for a Renault Megan (Scenic/Classic). This filter is 130mm high, OD is 176mm and the ID is 90mm. The GUD or Mann & Hummel filter ( AG1028 ) is 138mm high, OD is 176 and the ID is 95mm. Now since fitting the adhesive rubber to the inside of the airbox I have compensated for the 8mm lost. It fits like a glove and wait for it..... wait for it.....I bought 2 GUD oil filters ( Z 153 & Z 292 ) and the air filter for R 270 !!!!!

Sounds like a good deal! but why did you buy two oil filters surly it should have been the other way round??? After all if you are at a robot and the wind is blowing from behind you will block up that air filter within a few days with all the black smoke coming out of the exhaust in the diesel :rolling: :rolling: :redface: :redface: :surprised: :surprised: :think: :think:

No Cedric the black smoke only happens at low low speeds when you are trying to tow lots of patrols all hooked together and some of the drivers have their feet on the brakes!!!! :rolling: :rolling:

Us Petrol Patrols have clean oil and only need one filter!! :surprised: :surprised:
