Hey everyone. I just bought the JDM smoke reflectors off of Courtesy parts and was wondering what is the best way to install these things. Can it be done without taking off the front bumper or what? Your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Just take off the bumper. You definitely won't regret it. I went through the hassle of trying to avoid taking off the bumper and there's simply no way to get the passenger side reflector on if you don't take it off.

Behind the passenger side reflector is the windshield washer fluid resivoir. It will be in your way unless you are able to remove the bumper and pull it away from it some. You have to be able to fit a screwdriver in there.

I changed my corners last week. I was installing brake pads so I did the drivers side from the wheel well. The Passanger side is another story. Had to remove the bumper half way and I learned how easy it is to take off the bumper. There are plenty of posts on this and other sites to show you how so you dont break any of those plastic rivit thingys.

Thanks for the info guys. I actually has to send courtesy and email to cancel my order because I found the smoke ones for $28 shipped off of www.performancenissanparts.com ...... I have bought tons of stuff from Courtesy though and I love them to death. :yourock:

I took mine off with out removing the bumper. I just pulled my car on some rino ramps and used a l shaped screw driver. It took about 10 minutes for the drivers side and 20 minutes for the passenger side. Super easy to do.

Well I installed them last night and all I can say is WOW!!!!!! The smoked ones look really nice on the LeMans color. The driver side took me like 5 minutes. I did it from the fender well. The passenger side on the other hand was FUBAR. Took me like 30 minutes. I ended up just taking the windshield washer containter out and then it was cake from there. I will get pics up asap. Im a at work right now. peace.
