Something to consider for the OP... is to repair/clean the clock spring if not broken. Sometimes it is easier to repair than we could think.

Wrong..... cluster in a Murano and a Maxima are 2 different beast and non-intechangeable. Even if they look similar.

This is a Maxima cluster:

Let me see if I understand this correctly. Because I used the word "argument" in my statement and quoted your post in my response you took offense? You obviously are not familiar with my postings.

The term "argument" was not meant as a challenge, nor does it mean I intended to argue with you. I used it in the manner related to comparative relationships, such as in a mathematical statement - "If this, then that". If comparing platforms, then consider an Altima. No big deal.

In addition, I, more often than not, will quote a post if it is not the initial post. That way if someone searches for information in the future it is clear what my post is referring to.

If you have issues with my moderating skills I suggest you PM me with your concerns.

If you would have stated that you consider an Altima a good choice as well then we would not be having this discussion, but I see where you going. When I quote someone and recommend a different action, that means that I am stating the other party is wrong and I am right. However, I love a good debate. But, we are different people so lets drop it. Hug and make up.

This is a Maxima cluster:

This is a Murano cluster:

I concede that I may be wrong about the design of the two cluster units. They looked similar when I looked at them years ago. Oops. I can not be right all the time. However, The Maxima and Murano clock springs has the same part number 479453X10A. So, I am right about the OP's question about the clock springs.

But, yes a person do not want to mess around with the airbag wiring without having the proper know how to properly handle it. And yes, the size of the wheel does mean squat. Nissan parts are usually the same among the similar platforms. The Nissan Maxima and the Murano even have the same instrument cluster and steering wheel, well at least the 2003-2006 models. Therefore, I believe that the two share the same clock spring. Is it a fact? No. I never checked myself. But I would bet money on it. P.S. Do you think that Nissan make different parts for every car it makes? No, the parts are very much the same in every car, especially the cars based on the same platforms. Do some research before you discuss things you do not know anything about, especially if you try to correct me.
The first thing one learns as a tech is not to assume. OE's make different parts for different cars for the oddest reasons, so even when logic says they should interchange, they won't. It can be absolutely maddening sometimes. I know for a fact that 04-08 Max has at least 2 different clocksprings. Because I've been handed a wrong one.

That why I believe that OP should just order the correct part number in the first place. Which the two different cars have. Did you read the previous post that has the part numbers for the clock spring. The first thing a tech should do it read the information given before responding. P.S. now I do not know if the Maxima or Murano have a different part number for different options, but they do share at least one clock spring part number .To close, it always better to order the part for your particular car and not try to subsitute the part from another car even if it is from the same car company. However, in the case of the clock spring ,the 2005 Maxima and 2003-2006 Murano shares the same part number.By the way, the 2004 maxima is from a different generation than the 2004.5 and up Maxima, hence the different part numbers. A tech should know that.

I read it, hence the comment about that generation of Maxima having at least 2 different parts available.

You have really gone out of your way to create arguments here, only to come back to what I originally posted. OP needs to look up the correct part for his vehicle and order that.

I stated that the OP should order the correct clock spring in my first post about the clock spring. That is why i said you should read the previous post first, because I said what you suggested already. P.S. I included a part number as reference so the OP can check before he make a purchase and to verify my information. Hey man, the OP wanted to know if the clock springs are interchangeble, the answer is yes for the 2005 Maxima. I agree with what you are saying about using the correct part and not making assumptions about parts fitting. I just wish people would stick to the question at hand, not quoting me about facts that are not answering the OP question because I will reply back. Just give your opinion without quoting my statements.

If you're looking to buy used you should check your options on Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market. Many times it's cheaper than ebay and I've been able to find some great parts for upgrades as well as replacement on the site.

The 2005 Maxima uses the same clock spring as the 2003- 2006 Murano, well atleast the same part number. So, it should work. However, since they have the same part number, why do you not just order the Murano's clockspring?
