ROAD DEBRIS DISABLED CONDENSER

Postby KingAK22 » Sat Sep 19, 2020 10:36 am

Good morning folks.
First post here so go easy on me. I have a 2007 Infiniti M35 base with about 115k on it. It seems to always find some bad luck. Most recently, road debris got through where a front license plate would be (which i should have living in TX, but refuse to hehe), and pierced my condenser. Currently getting it replaced. Was just checking if anyone has experienced a similar fate, and how have you guys addressed the issue going forward? Or should i just chalk it up to dumb luck?

THanks for reading!

Welcome to NICO!
That is indeed some bad luck. How big was whatever took it out? Usually cars have some kind of grill/protection there to prevent bigger stuff from getting through.

Also, please try to refrain from posting thread titles (and threads) in all caps.

Never happened to me, but I've seen it happen to other people, on other vehicles. It's certainly possible

Yep, bottom right corner of my condenser got hit with something here in NY and I had to replace.

Thank you all for your comments. I'll be getting it back today. Ilya, your mod list actually led me to purchasing the EZ Lip and yellow led fog lights. Will be working on adding those sometime this week!

We could not find the culprit. It also split the horizontal single plastic grill piece on the bumper right in front of the condenser too.

Also, thread title comment noted.
