My mechanic found these babies while installing my swifts.

Good thing only at 1000 kms

Well, guess what? Just performed my first oil change yesterday and low and behold, the damn coil spring retainers had not been removed. So add me to the club. I did not notice any difference after I removed them but I'm glad they're out.

This leads me to a question. What color are your springs and shocks? Mine are all black and I thought that Nismo models came with silver shocks with red coil springs.

Default 2016 Nismo

I just got my 2016 Nismo 2 weeks ago, saw this Forum, went and checked and sho nuff, I had 3 spacers on each front coil. I took it in today and had them removed. Initially, I thought the ride was a little soft when I bought it, and that it looked higher then the 2009 that I traded in. Now, the ride is firmer (by that I mean I can feel more of the road), yet the bumps aren't as dramatic as with the spacers in. Plus it looks way cooler with it lower in the front.

THANKS AGAIN FOR A GREAT ADVICE ON THIS FORUM - Question on responses garages

I Bought IN MARCH 2017 a 2016 demo car from nissan garage with 400km on it, NOW 4000 km later I saw this thread AND GUESS WHAT.... 6 brackets still present.

If I was not part of this forum I would have never known!
As I could not compare I would have driven with it for the rest of my life.

As I bought the 2016 nismo following my heart I would have stayed with it and secretly thought it was indeed a hard ride, without admitting to anyone, including my wife , avoiding critisism on my mid-life crisis buy

QUESTION: when I complained to nissan garage that these things were still present and they did not follow their internal procedures for preparing a car they dismissed it as a small matter...

Q1: Has anyone experience in complaints and responses from nissan corporate?

Q2: Can this have influence on later faults as the springs could not do their work and car rumbles ... what for warranty Claims?


Thanks for any response and enjoy ur ride as much as I do

Kind regards

Peter

You shouldn't have any issues. Mine were on my 2012 Nismo for 19k miles when I bought it. I drove it to 60k miles with no issues. Then it got totaled in a wreck. You will be fine.

I'm surprised that after all these years that this is still an issue with the dealerships. Thankfully my dealer knew about this when I bought my Nismo and had them taken off before delivery. That was back in 2013.

Mine were removed when the winter wheels and tires were installed two weeks after I purchased the vehicle.

The dealers haven't learned anything.

Default American Stealership

Finally traded in my 2010 Roadster for a 2017 Nismo and they were going to let it leave without taking off the damn spring clips. I almost **** myself when the service manager got all huffy and says "that isn't on my PDI" and I'm not doing anything that's not there. I would have walked but I pretty much stole this car as it had sat for almost 2 years. First thing I did when I got home was jack-er up and remove the 6 clips from the springs.

I told my sales person that if something as simple as this doesn't get done pre-delivery, I know what I can expect in terms of maintenance lol.
