R33 GT-R installation of bumper mesh


Recommended Posts

I would need some help to install the factory bumper mesh back into the factory bumper of an R33 GT-R.

I can't seem to figure out how to install the top of the mesh. Does the upper part belong on the inside or outside of the bumper?

Help, preferable with pictures would be greatly appreciated. image.gif.99940317c684bb0568e3701129861841.gif😀

The mesh definitely goes inside the bumper. I don't know how the 33 one is attached but in the 32 the mesh is held by clips which go behind the mesh, biting into plastic teeth that are moulded into the bumper. After 30+ years those teeth may be gone and you'll have to use cable ties like everyone else...

Yes but what about the upper part? There's one metal clip where a bolt goes through that needs to be attached there. And than there's 3 bolts going through the bumper onto bumper bar (chassis) which is combined with the number plate holder.

So really not sure anymore of the top of the mesh needs to be on the inside or outside of the bumper.

I pulled the metal clip you're describing up and over the middle bolt that goes through the license plate and into the bumper. Seems to work ok.

Hmmmm, doesn't make much sense in my head. So the mesh is actually between the license plate holder and bumper or in between the bumper and bumper support? Do you have a picture?

I don’t know how it’s actually set up from the factory. My license plate holder was missing when imported. My middle license plate bolt is broken off inside the bumper. The usual old car problems. The mesh is fully behind the bumper, and the top clip I hooked it over the end of the middle bolt, if someone actually knows how it’s supposed to be from the factory I’d like to know.

    • Clean MAFs, Check O2 sensors are good, Check knock sensors are good. They are quiet conservative on timing and factory knock maps (low Octane) are good. Highway I get 8.8-9.2L/100km in my 370z so must be an issue somewhere. Tuning anything VQ based is expensive due to Uprev licence costs & tuners knowing how to use it. HPtuners can now do a small amount of stuff but not worth the time compared to Uprev
    • Ok, wonder if that is normal??  Even my wife's bulky VQ35 AWD Murano does better than that, usually returns around 9L/100km on the highway. V35 6MT returns around 7.5L/100km and my current Q50 is mid to high 6s.
    • Pre tune it was usually sitting around mid 12L/100km. Post tune it went to around 11L/100km.
    • Found a card in the manuals bag that has the override code for a mongoose brand system. Found the exact one in my car Here. I don’t seem to have the second little key for the immobiliser however.
    • Just found a little connector that it fits in, it tricks the ignition into thinking the key is in for like 30 seconds and I can turn the starter without putting my key in. I can still start the car the usual way using my actual key. Very odd
