Re: JDM Part # F2809-3NC0A Illuminated Nissan Logo Install T

Thu Apr 11, 2013 6:23 am

I am assuming this won't work with a '13 SL with around view monitor?

Also, will the JDM illuminated kick plates work on US Leafs? I know from installing these on Infinitis' that they plug into the BCM. Since the BCM would be on the opposite side (RH vs LH drive) would these work on our Leafs?

Thanks!

Jimmy, I'm looking at doing this on my SL with premium (aka around view monitor) and it looks like the camera is mounted into the metal the badge is sitting on, rather than the badge itself. So physically it seems like it'd work. I'll take a picture in a few.

Or we're you talking about the wiring required already being used?

All of the above, lol. I didn't know if any of the camera stuff (actual camera, camera bracket, wiring, etc) was in the way as far as drilling holes, etc.

Good Question. My Guess is yes.. But the Camera Location is the Question..

Sorry for the crappy picture. I hadn't read the PDF before I took the pic, but I have now so I'll try to take a few more pics of the places involved.

Looks like it might just work.. And thanks for the Pic.. I am also considering bringing in the Full Camera Kit that is available.. I think that the LED Back Mount would work Under the Base that has the camera in it. You would need to remove the Camera and the Emblem .. Then install the LED back Lite. Then the Camera and then the Emblem.. But I bet you don't need to drill any holes as the Camera Lead must use the same Path for wires..

I don't think there is a detachable base for the badge: the rise that the camera is mounted into is the door itself. I'll triple check when I go back to the car.

Yeah there is no detachable base, it's part of the charger port cover.

No I believe it is.. The Door has a Recess in it.. The Emblem, sits in the recess.. See My PDF you will notice that the Charging door has a depression for the emblem to sit down in.. So it looks like the Camera Base is built on the door .. But I do not think Nissan Made a New Door just for the 2013, Also Like the LED Back Light i think the Camera Base just Mounts in between.. It looks like its all one unit.. But take a look at the PDF for the LED light I think you will see.

It Looks like you can just mount the LED Back Light Kit to the Camera Base, Then Mount the Emblem on top.. It might look like a Dubble Stuffed Oreo Cookie :)
