Here's what I know - I had a 2007 model I bought in January '07. I had ordered the fog light kit from Brian @ cherryhill, come to find out there was a minor change from the 2006 model stalk, it would not work - I think the connectors are different. I worked with Brian after the purchase, he researched and got the correct part - pretty sure the 2007 and 2008 stalks are the same (the 2006 and 2007 stalks ARE NOT).
There are some thread postings on here from when I discovered this.
I thought I posted this yesterday, guess I didn’t hit submit.
I’ve been having issues with the stalks as well that I have picked up from the junkyard. Picked up several hoping they also fit Xterras but the part numbers for the stalks change quite a bit. Even better some don’t have part number labels on them so I have to notate the year and month of manufacture as they also change them during the model year.
For example 25540-EA00A fits 2005-2006 Xterra but that was replaced with part number 25540-EA005 that supposedly fits 2005-2008.
Then searching the part for 2007 model it gets even more confusing. Shows 25540-EA00A fitting production 9/2005 -8/2007 then 25540-ET11A for 8/2007-7/2008 but later replaced by 25540-ET11E. Another website that shows what year and model part numbers will fit shows 25540-ET11A fitting 2006-2010 and 25540-ET11E fitting 2006-2013.
No wonder the parts guys sell the wrong parts sometimes!
