Start Button - Ok I had to do it.

Recommended Posts

Ok its nearly 3 years and I finally had to do it. I am brave enough I think to do this or keep it until I come to an event when someone can help.

 

I have bought this:

From one of our traders. I like the idea of changing the surround as well as the button.

 

Will post up pictures after its installed.

Finally Les! :lol:

 

It's a simple but really nice mod. You'll see the difference in quality of the buttons when the new one arrives. You'll appreciate the red one every day :)

 

If you're not feeling brave then I'll happily help fit it, but I'm sure you'll be fine.

 

I've not seen the red ring before. I think it would suit your car, but I probably wouldn't put it on mine.

Cheers Guys - I think I have some tools from fitting the Nismo Carbon Side Entry Guards. I will go and take a look. I must admit the Red surround was a bonus.

 

If I start and don't feel like it I will stop - but I did the LED Light modules and from the excellent instructions on here - I think its just unplug and plug back together again. But if I chicken out I will keep it for a event. Likely Leeds Castle... :wiggle:

That looks a million times better. Should have had it in the first place.

To start use a plastic screwdriver to pop the whole button out like this. You will hear a click dont worry.

( this is the tool i used to remove the original button )

After you pop it out, disconnect the plug.

Lastly just push the side of the button and push it upward to take the original start button out. Than reinsert the RED GTR BUTTON!

FINALLY simply reconnect the plug and push the buttons back in place and ohhhh yeahhhh http://www.the370z.com/images/smilies/ughdance.gif there you go the red button!

How come? I don't like all mods either but if it gives pleasure to the person who's done it then no harms done :)

Wins most pointless mod ever award??

 

Sent from my SM-N910F using Tapatalk

 

Nah. I've done plenty more pointless mods than this one. Bought a small metal Z pin off ebay once, sawed the pin off it and glued the Z to the gear surround on my 350z, just above the stick. Looked lovely.

 

Even worse than that - I painted silver enamel on the Z's in the door panel air outlets. You could never see them :)

 

This could form the basis of a good thread - thanks DT.

My Wife said if thats what you want and makes you happy.

 

I love the Zed its a car you can keep doing bits too from the day you buy it to the day you wave goodbye. From Large projects we have seen here with Turbo's and alike to stickers - it just allows people to make it the way they want. Their car. No two really are alike for very long.

 

I guess if it was such a bad idea - Nissan wouldn't have bothered with it on the V2 Nismo...... oh yes they did.... :bleh:

That'll be a nice surprise for you. Make sure you're good for the next 2 weeks, or you might be lumbered with that little white button.

 

Out of interest, why the f*** aren't you fitting it on Christmas day?
