Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as the phone calls are concerned they do cost more and I am not the one asking for or pushing for a call the website is.

Are you a working full time mechanic...I ask because your short description indicates you are the owner of Baltic investments.
Where do you want me to send the picture?
Infiniti Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

Yes I am a full time mechanic, the invest company is my side venture and needed that to verify for employment on the website, you can send the picture on here, should be able to click on the little paperclip

not seeing the paper clip
Infiniti Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

there should be that or a box that says attach files or wording that says that somewhere on there, there is about 20 different page variations so its hard to say where yours would be located

Here are a few blogs that talk about the known issue (but don't know how to fix it except by replacing the hinges):

Thats just a bad engineering design right there, These are the cheapest ones I could find, short of you bending them back to original state, which is going to be pretty hard to do.

I can find the parts myself ...but how do I mount them? it looks like they are bolted on beneath the fenders. I'm not comfortable removing fenders and trying to put them back on.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Never mind, I found the procedure myself online.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
As I suspected, I have to remove the fenders, which is what I was trying to avoid.
Infiniti Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

cool good luck with the repairs

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Looks like this is a wasted effort. I'm going to just have to take it to the dealer I suspect.
Infiniti Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

would you like for me to put in for a refund?
