Hi Dayo
Both transmission are basically the same the front half .

You will have to remove the transfer case on your transmission and the rear drive from the 2wd transmission and compair the two , normally they should interchange .

See if you can remove both transmission ends to compair .

one more thing what is the part number for the transmission for Nissan pathfinder 2005 4.0 2wd transmission , I don't want to buy a 3.5 2wd transmission by error.,


After all will the auxiliary function still work and is there any programming of the ECU to be done.

Expert:  indy-tech replied 2 years ago.
Hi Dayo .

5 Speed trans 2wd part number 31020EA503

5 Speed trans 4wd part number. 31020EA30A

Just rechecked and was told will not fit has a different output shaft
to the transfer case.

If you go for the 2wd transmission then you will have to modify the complete system .

ECM does not need programming will work ,but you will have 4wd warning
codes come up check engine light will be on etc.
