#1 of 130 Fog lites for Altima '02?
Dec 16, 2001 (10:05 am)
I'm just about to purchase the S; dealer says wiring is already there, he can add fogs for under $259 (MSRP). Is it easy & cheap enough to do it myself or have it done? What's the approx. cost & what brand/type should I get? Also, would anything have to be done to the wiring (or just plug them in?) and could this affect my warranty? Thanks.
#2 of 130 foglights for 2.5s
Dec 16, 2001 (6:47 pm)
I would say let the dealer do it because it will be covered by your warranty for 3yrs-36,000 miles.
Should you ever have electrical problems and the dealership realises that you had the fog lights done privately, they would void your warranty especially Nissan.My Nephew had installed boom box in his trunk and upgrade his sterio system in a Maxima and he had an electrical problem not related to the sound system but the dealer gave him a tough time. Every time he went for service he had to call Nissan Corporate to get the dealer to take the car for warranty service.
#3 of 130 Add sunroof?
Dec 22, 2001 (7:49 am)
I can't believe I'm finally about to get my Altima S w. ABS & no convenience pkg. - hard to find but they're out there! The dealer hasn't given me his price yet on a sunroof, but he did say that it would be guaranteed for life! I have some questions: Is that a typical warranty for an aftermarket, or what is? How do I tell who's a good installer, other than ASC? What's a good price for a power s/r? And is it possible to get one that manually slides back so it's cheaper, or would only a pop-up be available? Sounds like I should get a deflector to cut down on noise. Thanks.
#4 of 130 What State are you in?

Volcano: What state are ou in and what's the name of the dealer that has the 2.5s with Abs package without the convenience pkg.
#6 of 130 Upgrade Audio at Nissan Altima
Jan 15, 2002 (11:18 am)
I hope to get some help and information here.
I have bought 1997 Nissan Altima Limited edition
when it was new. Everything is excellent. But
this car only have AM/FM and cassette Player
unit. I hope to install a single CD player on
it and also keep the original AM/FM Cassette
player unit. When I went to Car Audio shop,
they told me that they can install a new
AM/FM, cassette and CD player unit, but can not
use the original unit, and will charge for $450.
I think, if I can install a CD player unit only while keeping the original FM/AM Cassette unit, it
may cost about $200. Do you have any such kind
experience? or any reference web site about it?
#7 of 130 cold air intake
Jun 23, 2002 (3:09 am)
Will I void out my engine warranty if I change to a cold air intake on my 2002 Altima 2.5S? It is not a engine modification but and improvemnet in air intake.

If the CAI causes any problems (e.g. mass airflow sensor fails), those won't be covered under warranty. But the dealer can't deny you service for problems not caused by your mod. That doesn't mean they won't try, however.
#9 of 130 Fix for annoying buzz or rattle in dome light
Jun 30, 2002 (3:46 am)
I bought a '02 2.5S about a month ago, and I like the car, it's not perfect, but it's fun to drive, and I like letting it rev out, it's got good power at 4000 rpm and up. Anyway, I read a review in which a person complained about a buzz or noise in the dome light. I too had this problem, it would make a buzz going down the road, very annoying! The back of the inner part of the light is buzzing against the roof of the car, and to fix this, all you have to do is take lens cover off, and then the two screws that mount the light, then just take something to insulate the light from the roof, I used a folded paper towel, folded to about a two inch square, and placed it in between the light and roof, re-assembled and it solved the whole buzzing problem. I hope this helps someone out. ST
#10 of 130 Simulated Wood Grain Trim
Sep 20, 2002 (10:10 am)
I got the wood grain trim package with my Altima as a a dealer addon. The dealer came up short (backorder) on the section that went around the shift area. Does anyone else have this option because the dealer has told me the part is in and when I went to have it installed it was a grey insert rather than woodgrain and I think it should be woodgrain. They say its supposed to be grey.
