Brake light bezel install time

Recommended Posts

I have the rear brake lights in/wired. How much time does it take to install the brake light/license plate bezels that have the little plastic rivets?

 

Thanks, GI

Not much at all from what I remember.  Be careful putting the screws in the tag light housing, don't overtighten or they'll crack.  It is two pieces that slide into each other.  The finisher around the brake lights have clips at the bottom, be sure to remember and get those seated.

The trim around that stuff is stainless so a light buff with some 0000 steel wool will clean them up nicely.

Did you repaint while you have it off?  Here's a good thread on a paint choice.  

Here's the Nissan p/n for the little rivets, right side of the picture.  Good luck.

P.S  I think those bottom two p/ns are for the rubber seals around the lights and all that came from my local Nissan parts department, non stocking but overnight delivery to the dealer.

Thanks, GI

That sounds about right to me.  It's been a few years though so just a guess.  Those rivets aren't cheap but I think you'll only need two of the smaller ones behind the tag and 6 of the bigger on top?
