New Car - Need some advice on a few items

Postby bigsikk » Tue Feb 08, 2011 9:34 pm

Purchasing a pre-owned '06 M35X tomorrow - Journey, Tech Pkgs - Need advice on a few things:

1. Noticed a small tear (1/2") in the passenger side door upholstery, where the fabric wraps around the door, close to the metal, mid-way up the door. How to go about either fixing this or making sure it doesn't get worse.
2. Do the "Curb Rash" guys who fix this type of thing do a good job? 1 Wheel is bad, 2 others could be touched up.
3. Driver's side Fog Light lens is cracked - Heard the Nissan Sentra 07-08 assembly was a cheap fit (and plastic, so no more rock+glass=$) - Any thoughts on that?
4. Car has 55K+ miles on it - Staring @ 60K service soon - Have a trusted Turkish mechanic (9+ years) - Works on Japanese cars virtually exclusively - Should he be able to, given a list, do the things required?

Not necessarily a car guy here - Just a guy who bought a '97 Infiniti I30 back in 2000 with 59K miles on it and now am going to be selling it to the aforementioned Turkish mechanic - With nearly 270K miles - Love the brand - He loves my old car (he should, he knows it by heart).

Thanks in advance -

Ok well ill try to tackle a few of these the best i can. First off welcome to the forum, hopefully when you get your M you will stick around and add to this site, its def. very helpful as you can find just about anything by searching or just asking. Im assuming your Turkish fella has given the car a pre-purchase inspection but if not then that would be a great idea. Also looking into an extended warranty would be a must in my opinion bc the cars are amazing but when things go wrong it can get very expensive.

ok here we go
1) It will be easier to answer this if you post a pic of the rip when you get the car so we can see exactly what we are up against. You can always find used inside door panels on ebay for sale so maybe you can just find that replacement part and get it that way. The dealership can prob. order it for ya but it will most likely be crazy expensive bc thats just how they roll. So post a pic and we'll go from there.
2) Curb rash can usually be fixed pretty well if you find a good guy. You might want to ask a local dealership who they use bc they usually have a guy that will come to them and fix the wheels for a good price. Also search the net for a local wheel repair guy, many times they come to you and fix the wheels on the spot. Ive seen this a few times and ive always been impressed, however im not sure about the longevity of the fix so find out what warranty they offer. You can also find people selling their wheels bc they got new ones and youll get a good deal that way.
3)dont know about this but i do know its been asked on here many times so just type "fog light" in the search and then you can narrow things down from there. Someone else will also prob. be able to help with this but its not a major fix so dont let it deter you by any means.
4) Your mechanic should be able to do everything that the dealership would do for ya at a much much better price. Your owners manual will tell you everything you should do at the 60k mile checkup otherwise you can also search this forum for a maintenance schedule. I used to have it bookmarked on my computer but i got a new one so i have to find it again myself. It was very helpful though so im sure youll find it helpful. You can also contact your local infiniti dealership and have them print off any service records they have for your car. If the previous owner took it to an infiniti dealer for service then they will have record of it and you can see what has been done and when. It will also show any warranty work its been in for.

Lastly there is a pricing thread on this site that tells what prices members are paying for their cars so you can get an idea of what similar cars are selling for. Just search Pricing thread and it will come right up. Hope this helps and keep us updated. Add your info to that pricing thread after you get your car so that others can get help from it down the road! Good luck! Stephen PS watch out for ablanco... hes sorta creepy! :chuckle:

1) I dont know about the fabric. Might have to put some sort of patch on it.
2) IDK
3) yes the Nissan Sentra fog light housing fits and are much cheaper. Not sure on the exact year to match your car though.

Appreciate it fellas - Picked "her" up last night - Don't think I'll forget that first ride home anytime soon...

2 quick follow-up's:

1) When I'm trying to program the side rear-view mirrors so that they drop when I put it into Reverse (I do it by the book/manual), they won't drop into position - To get the mirrors to drop into position (for reverse) I need to flip the side rear view mirror button over to the left side (then it moves into position on its own) and then flip it over to the right (then that mirror flips down to the rear view / reverse setting) - So I know I'm close to the answer 'cause when I do those things (the flipping of the switch for both sides) they do to the angles I'd like them to be, but I need to figure out why they aren't going there automatically when I shift to reverse.

2) When trying to set up the voice tags for my address book for the cell phone - It all went well (I thought) - I spoke clearly and sort of slowly and the replay it did for me sounded fine - But when I tried to call someone by pushing the button on the steering wheel (after I waited for it to ask me for the name and chime), whatever voice tag I said the car always tried to call a set of numbers (?) - It would dial 2487 or 287 or something like that - I did the voice tags sitting with the car off (no background noise) and I tried to call someone with the car off and on (to see if it made a difference - same result.

Any help would be great gentlemen.

Best -

Bill

PS - How do you go about uploading either pix of the car (under your name) or, for example, the pix of the ripped upholstrey (to be inserted in my posting - Thx again)

Can't help with the phone, but as far as the mirrors are concerned:

You have to leave the switch in the position (left or right) that you want. Only one mirror will go down to the set position.

As for pics:

Save picture to computer
Go to a site such as imageshack.us and upload it to there.
Copy and past the 'direct link' (should end in .jpg or something like that) into your post(s) in between an <img> and an </img> tag.

Note: replace < or > with [ or ]

Thx Dusty - That KP site is great - I just noticed today that, while driving my young sons around that the rear doors did not lock @ a certain speed - I'd just assumed that they did - Sort of hard to believe that a car like this wouldn't (My wife's '06 Chrysler mini-van does...I mean, come on) - That's on the list to get along with the switch for both of the mirrors to turn down simultaneously in R - I really appreciate it.

Anyone have a ballpark figure on what someone would charge to install said switches? (Way beyond something I'd attempt)

Best to all.

The 2007 Sentra S & SL fog light fits the '06 M. The part numbers are 261558990A for the Drivers side and 261508990A for the passenger side. I bought mine on Amazon.

So these are PLASTIC meaning they won't crack or fade? My stock ones are kind of cloudy.

This has been covered several times on this forum. :facepalm:

illya, as I have said in the past:
You CAN have both mirrors tilt when in reverse simultaneously. Read the manual. It is in there and it works. Please stop passing on incorrect info when it has been pointed out several times....thanks.

You're really going to call me out on that?

Please provide page/section numbers from the manual as I would like to know this. I have done the instructions in the following section, and mine do NOT go down at the same time.

Continuing onwards...the section for mirrors is 3-23 of the Owners Manual. It specifically states, "When backing up the vehicle, the right OR left (or is capitalized for emphasis in this post) outside mirror will turn downward automatically to provide better rear visibility."

Then it goes on to explain how you can set the memory positions for both, but it does NOT say or suggest that after doing so BOTH will go into reverse positions when the car is in R.

I have seen your other posts refuting this, and the manual says nothing about it. So please, STFU and stop being an a**. I have read that some people (like you) have both tilting down, but it has nothing to do with the instructions in the manual, etc. There is either a module in your car (like 00Dustin linked) or there is some other non-documented method that was previously done on your particular vehicle. It is NOT the method posted in the manual. So again, don't be an a** and instead of posting the way you did causing my rant, why not post the exact steps to do so? I don't think you really know them though...so I don't think you'd be able to help him even if it IS possible.

Oh, and to clarify...my name is I L Y A. Not I L L Y A. Kthxbye.

To quote Rodney King (if anyone still remembers all that OJ stuff) "Can't we all just get along?"

I've owned the car for less than 36 hours - I can follow a recipe - I read the manual and can't get them both to move when I put it in R - I sure would like some help figuring it out - When you do a search for this topic, apparently many guys/gals share my frustration (or at least they did till either they figured it out or someone explained it better)

Tryin' to make some friends, not start trouble.

He's to Friday, all - Think I'll have some of my favorite Kentucky brown-water tonight and look @ my manual again.

Sorry for the OJ mention - Got my wires crossed (too much brown-water?) - That was a totally different issue - That was the LAPD and a terrible thing that happened - No offense intended.

I'm fine. I just don't like it when people call me out saying I'm providing bad information when they are doing the same thing.

Just defending myself because he insinuated I'm a n00b, which is hardly the case. I'm here to help you.

Yes, I am.
Please provide page/section numbers from the manual as I would like to know this. I have done the instructions in the following section, and mine do NOT go down at the same time.
I have to do this every time the battery is disconnected...it is not hidden. Granted, each time I have to pull out the manual and follow the steps, but it is in there.
Then it goes on to explain how you can set the memory positions for both, but it does NOT say or suggest that after doing so BOTH will go into reverse positions when the car is in R.
I do not have a module installed and BOTH mine tilt when I put the car in reverse. I have the selector switch in the middle and both mirrors tilt down. If I select one side or the other, then just that one mirror goes down. Once again, this is not with a module.

Just because you can't figure it out doesn't mean you can jump down someone's throat that is tired of seeing "this can't be done because I can't figure it out" posts. Note that I said "please" in my post. Grow up. I am done on this topic.

Why is everyone on this forum on edge lately?!?!

Back to the topic, that's really interesting, but I also am not able to make both mirrors go down when the selector is in the middle..

Okay Mr. Wise Guy. Why don't you go open your Infiniti God Mode (if you play video games you'll know what this means lol) Owners Manual and find the section that you follow and post it here instead of jumping down my throat for providing wrong information. Obviously, my information (according to section 3-23 which deals SPECIFICALLY with the memory mirror function in reverse) is 110% correct (according to the 2007 Owners Manual). So prove me wrong wise guy. Section and number, now.

I provided proof of my 'reasoning' (if you will) which backs up my post. You have yet to do so. All we know is your car has both mirrors tilt down. How? Why? Where are the instructions? You haven't provided answers to any of that, so until then, zip da lip home slice. Bottom line is if you think people are giving the wrong info, then POST THE GOOD INFO. Obviously the entire community fails at finding it, so stop trying to correct people with information you can't provide.

Provide it, and I will link the post in the FAQ thread so it never comes up again.

Um...Thanks (I guess) for chiming in rgb..If you're still viewing, you've probably already figured out what we're either not doing or doing wrong - Any light to shed on that end would be great - (Nice & shiny outside in GA today - Guess I'll go play w/my boys and dogs - Thanks in advance for all helpful contributors) :spitout:

When I first got my M45 both mirrors went down at the same time. I didn't like when the drivers side went down as I live in the city and you always have to look back to see whats going on.

So I made it that the pass side only went down. Next time I go to the car I'll check if I can get both to go down again.

When I purchased my M35X (CPO) both the mirrors tilted down when put in reverse. I don't know what I did but now it does not tilt both mirrors. I screwed up some preset I guess. I'll take a look at the setting but if I remember correctly if I have the switch in the middle neither mirror tilts. If I change it to right or left the corresponding mirror will tilt. I'll figure it out.

I've read the manual and didn't see anything that insinuated both could go down. I also haven't seen any threads indicating that both can go down without a module in my searching. Maybe the real question is did those who believe this happens factory buy their cars new, or could a module already have been installed or a hack already have been performed? It is also possible that some of them do it due to a design or model year change, or even a glitch. Mine certainly doesn't do it, but I want both off anyway.

Manual for 2010x

Procedure for storing outside mirror positions for best visibility at reverse tilt down feature.

1. Apply parking brake.
2. Push the ignition switch to the ON position. (do not start engine)
3. Push the memory switch (1 or 2) fully for at least 1 sec to operate the automatic drive positioner.
4. Turn the outside mirror control to L
5. Depress the brake pedal.
6. Move the selector level to the R position
7. Adjust the mirror to the desired viewing position for backing up by operating the outside mirror control switch
8. Push the SET switch and, within 5 secs, push the memory switch (1 or 2) selected in step 3 fully for at least 1 sec. The indicator light for the pushed memory will stay on for appx 5 secs after pushing the switch. After the indicator light goes off, the selected miror position is stored in the selected memory.
9. Turn the outside mirror control switch to R. Repeat above procedure. When the driver's seat, outside mirror and steering column are not in the memorized position, the outside mirror will move with the initial tilt down angle, if the reverse tilt down position is stored.

Is this what we are all battling about?

That's it - Sounds simple - Just went out and tried it again - Not it on my car - Mirror(s) only move when L or R side is indicated on switch - When switch left in neutral / middle, neither mirrors move - Tired of this...

Are the net clips that hold netting in passenger side (R) floorboard hard to find, install - 1 is broken - Looks sloppy - Need a black / charcoal clip - Any help would be appreciated. Just did a search on here and ebay and all signs pointing to dealer...

Any advice on best quality + value floormats - I have the OEM w/Infiniti symbol - Starting to look a bit tired - Thx again.

This is basically the same thing as the 07 manual.

I'm still waiting for the instructions on how rgb did it. Evidently he's the only one who can replicate it time and time again.
