2011 Infiniti M56: Getting Rid of the Gunner
July 13, 2011
If you saw Takahashi's post about the M56's stuck window shade, you know that every shift into reverse was accompanied by a grinding motor drive that sounded like a B-movie Tommy gun sound effect. It was slightly annoying to maddening depending on who you asked and how recently they had completed a three point turn.
We took the M56 to the local dealer this morning and the service adviser said that the whole retractable shade unit would have to be replaced. It's now on order and should be in shortly. In the meantime, we'll be figuring out how to drive the M56 without ever having to put it in reverse.
