In the previous post, I installed aftermarket seats in the 2005 G35 coupe.
However, the center console lid was still a faded beige color, so I purchased a red cover for the center console lid (Figure 5) from eBay for about $25.
This post describes how to re-upholster or install that red cover permanently to your center console lid to match the seats color.Read More →
In the previous post, I installed aftermarket seats in the 2005 G35 coupe. However, the airbag lights were on and the codes being shown, as in Figure 1, were
B1034 (not pictured). This is due to the fact that the side airbags are not
present in the aftermarket seats. In this post, I describe how to simulate the airbag sensor using a 2.2 Ohm 1/4 Watt resistor and this process is also incorrectly referred to as airbag delete. You already “deleted” the airbag when you removed your stock factory seats, you want to simulate the airbag sensor to make the Airbag Control Unit think that there is an airbag present. That is done with a 2.2 Ohm 1/4 Watt resistor.
I had been looking for a deal for good red seats for my interior for almost 7 months now, since I am going for a certain look for the Infiniti G35. I finally got a great deal on a pair of used red Braum seats for a price of $550 along with a separate deal of a pair of seat brackets by Planted Technology for $200 for the pair off Facebook Marketplace. I got these in March but finally got time to install the seats today, in May ! This post describes how to remove stock seats and install replacement seats in the G35 Coupe.Read More →
In an earlier post we plastidipped the front grille and emblem on the Infiniti G35 coupe. But the G35 was seeing further paint wear issues as seen in Figure 1 and 2. The roof was looking pretty bad and starting to rust.
So I took a couple of quotes off Facebook Marketplace and Instagram for local installers who would install a carbon fiber wrap on the hood, roof and trunk. In the end I went with A. B. Wraphouse who did a fantastic job. He is just a young guy doing this from his home garage and is just into doing car cosmetic changes.Read More →
Since the day I purchased the Infiniti G35 Coupe, there was a belt squeal on cold starts that would go away after a minute of the engine getting warm and would not appear until the next cold start. After some research, I found that it was due to the main drive belt not being tight enough.
The previous owner had replaced the alternator before my purchase, but had used his uncalibrated thumb to test for the belt tension. I wanted to make sure that the belts were new and proactively decided to replace the idler pulleys as well. This post talks about how to do that. If you just want to check and adjust the belt tension, you can skip to the last section.
This job is actually relatively easy, and can be done within an hour or two if you have the parts available. However, my car has some rust and the adjustment bolts needed replacement, which delayed the process for me.Read More →
