- I just bought the sunroof deflector for my 96 SE-R. I can't seem to be able to

- Ken Pratte (k...@bit-net.com)
no special tool, just technique. The way you do it is to just barely thread each of the
two screws with the j-hook in. Then open the door and basically squish the bugger down and
push the hook piece under. It's easier of course if you can flatten out the rubber piece a
little by wiggling it back and forth. Once you get both sides in, you can tighten it some,
but whatever you do, don't crank it all the way down, or you'll ruin the paint. After
rubber starts to stay squished all the time is when you can tighten the screws all the

look good, work good and fit great. Dismount each wheel to install the mud flaps and it
goes much easier. For the front you'll need just a #2 philips, but the back you need a
drill to for a tiny pilot hole. Easy.

Here's an alternative to removing the wheels when installing on a 200sx. The front ones
are already drilled for the side pieces. For these just turn the wheels to screw in the
screws, just common sense. But the backs are not drilled. Rather than removing the wheels
and drilling a starter hole, I just used a scratch-awl to punch a starter hole in the
plastic bumber-really easy. Then I used the screw mounts to hold the screws in. Probably
took me twenty minutes.
- Do any of ya'll classic owners have armrests? Could you give me the part number and
- Peter Kwiatek (H...@aol.com)
just installed my armrest last weekend- took a whole 2 minutes. I picked mine up for about
$50 from B&B (I think)- all three usual dealers in the back of Car and Driver were
within $4 of each other. It's well worth the 50 bucks for that "gansta lean" or
just comfort. The armrest is padded and made of vinyl material like the back of your seat.
Cloth matching the side door panels would have been much nicer.

I didn't care for the interior lacking an armrest so what I bought was a center console
for a 91-93 NX-2000. This thing is great. It takes 2 bolts to go in and has a flip up lid
so you can put your wallet in there alnog with keys and whatever else. It comes in two
colors: grey and black. You HAVE to get black as the grey is WAY to light. When you get
it, the color looks a little off (you can BARELY tell) just put some Armor-All on it and
that's it! The price is only $74 from Cambridge Nissan in MA or call Brown & Brown if
they are closer to you. Here is the part number # 96910-65Y63 IN BLACK.

<< I've been through the SE-R FAQ and saw that there was an armrest for the NX and it has part number # 96910-65Y63 black... I called up Cambridge Nissan Yesterday and they gave me a part number of 999M1BB000CH for the Sentra which comes in charcoal and grey... now i was just wondering... could the NX and the SE-R interchange their armrests? and what is the difference in appeaance between the two... I mean does one also have a storage bin while the other doesnt...>>
This thread started when someone mentioned the Sentra armrest. Apparently, this thing
looks too much like a bicycle seat and has no storage. Someone else chimed in that they
had purchased an NX console (the whole thing) and put it in their Classic. The NX console
has a storage bin/armrest, unlike the rather lacking console in our classics. If you just
want the rest, get the cheaper Sentra armrest, if you want storage, get the NX console, I
talked to Brown&Brown the other day, it's $98. I think I'm gonna order it in the next
few weeks, after I get my windows tinted this weekend and my wife gets past that......
Note: the NX console will fit all 91-92 Sentra SE-Rs and only 93-94
Sentra SE-Rs that are not equipped with airbags.
- SE-R armrest...
- YATAMAN (Y...@aol.com)
the SE-R armrest. I got mine today and did a preliminary installation. With shipping I
paid $87 for the armrest. The part number is 999M1-BB000CH.
I was told that Nissan is not making this part anymore and it is no longer instock at
the dealer's supplier, so check your local Nissan dealers if they have them in stock.
B&B was very helpful, but were not able to get an armrest for me. If you can't get one
in your area you can email me and I will send you the name of the place I got mine.
What you get is a padded armrest with mounting brackets (no compartments, sorry..I wish
they had them). The brackets go into the opening where the ashtray is located on the
center console. After installing the armrest you will not be able to use the ashtray. The
armrest comes with a covering plate for the ashtray. You screw the back of the armrest
down with supplied screws throught the holes that are by the ashtray; you will also need
to drill two holes into the console above the parking brake (I have not done this yet. I
want to try it out without drilling first) to screw down the armrest. From the back seat
the armrest does not seem that sturdy, i.e. if you need to brace yourself getting in or
out of the back seat. I'll try it out on my commute in the morning.
I heard that several list members installed the center console of a NX. That part
number is 96910-69Y09. The console runs about $70 or so. This console has a compartment,
but I heard that the console is not screwed down due to its width. Also, I heard that
clicking in the seatbelt can be tricky due to less space. There is also an armrest pad
available for this unit. That part number is 999M1-HB000CH. With the pad you have to take
the console lid off and drill two holes through the lid which then screw into the pad. The
pad costs about $30 or so.
- How does the arm rest install on the 200sx? Is it worth it?
- Searl Tate (s...@expersoft.com)
really isn't any real "install". Just drops right into the center console
section- that's it! :) Yeah, it's worth it. I ordered mine from B&B Nissan for about
$45.00 to my door.
