RiCharlie, you should not bother. It will just be more time you can't drive your Z because its at the dealer. I pulled the fuse a year ago on my 2009, no issues.

I had my steering lock unit replaced yesterday. Just dropped the car off at the dealership for about 2 hours that I wasn't going to use it anyway and got the call saying it was ready.

I called my sevice department to ask them to order in the part, they said it as there waiting for me to have it installed.

They know I park it for the winter,and were going to call me to let me know there was a recall.

I love my Nissan's service department,probably the main reason I've bought 3 brand new Nissan products.

If your hatch doesnt pop up all the way, use one had to pop and the same to open. Shouldn't have to use two hands to open hatch. Mine was replaced during lunch so an hour, I still have my fuse pulled and have to plans of putting the fuse back in.

There's a TSB for it...
Also, try this:

I have a 2011 (Jan 2011 build date). Nissan Canada told me that my VIN was not affected by the recall.

I believe most (if not all) 2011s already have Rev D ESCL. This is the same revision they are using as a replacement for the recall. Problem is there are reports of the Rev D failing as well. We bought our 2011 in March 2011 (not sure of exact build date), it has Rev D, and I removed the fuse months ago.

Because of the way Nissan has handled this recall, if my car had been part of the recall, I would have replaced the fuse and taken it in to have the dealer replace the unit then pulled the fuse again, all just so Nissan would have to pay for it.

I wrote to NissanUSA gave them my VIN and they wrote back and said I should take it in. Hoping they'll give it to me and let me put it in, ha-ha.
