#2634 of 2710 2010 Nissan Altima 2.5 S In cabin air filter
Jun 13, 2011 (10:20 am)
If I can, anyone can: Filter flawlessly purchased on amazon for about 1/3 of the price that dealer wanted. I removed and installed the new one myself for the first time in about 3-4 minutes (No tools). Here's how I did it: Enter via front passenger side. Remove floor mat. On fire wall area just beneath glove box, go left until you see a small protubing black plastic square shaped device. This is located and connected to the center console. Fiddle around until you find a very simple latch. Undo the latch, remove the filter cover (Black plastic strip). Place a finger into the exposed area, feel for the filter. If necessary, use a flat head screwdriver to coax it out. You may have to slightly scunch the new one to get it in.

I did everything you said, got the cover off but can't get the filter out, It feels like its bigger than the opening, I'm at a loss, tried a screw driver, there must be something I'm missing

I have a 94 Altima that the engine turns over but will not start. Took the battery out and checked it. It has plenty of power. Cars lights, dash, chimes, windows and locks, emergency blinkers do not work. Any thoughts on what the problem is and how to correct it? This just came out of the blue. No issues..Help!
#2639 of 2710 Question about Altima Gold Preferred 84 Month 120,000 Mile Coverage
Jul 05, 2011 (10:32 pm)
Hi! I just purchased a CPO 2011 Altima 2.5s and would like to add an extended warranty plan before the car hits 10K miles. I live in AZ, found an online quote from a Nissan dealer in CA for a 84 months/120K Gold Preferred for about $1200.00. Questions: 1) Does the quote sound reasonable? 2) Anybody has experience using service contracts purchased online and using it at the local dealers? Thanks much.

I think your question is better suited for our Extended Warranties discussion, so you might click on my link and post over there.
#2641 of 2710 2012 Nissan Altima Coupe Seats
Aug 23, 2011 (4:31 pm)
I just bought the Nissan Altima Coupe brand new with 9 miles, and about 500 miles later I'm already feeling the very back of the seat against my back, as if the cushion is already worn. I'm not a heavy guy nor do I think I've been in the seat long enough to warrant this condition. It seems quality of Japanese cars have decreased. Does anyone have a comment? I've never owned a Japanese car so I don't know about wear and tear, but I do know that no car should be this low in quality if purchased brand new. Another worry is that the airbag located in the seat is shifting. Any comments please!
#2642 of 2710 Shifter won't come out of Park
Oct 20, 2011 (7:45 pm)
My sons girlfriend has a 2006 Altima with a four speed auto. It will crank and start just fine. It will not shift out of park. Impossible to move stick to any other position. Her parents think the transmission is bad. I'm thinking it's a faulty interlock. How do these work?

Stepping on the brake sends a signal to a solenoid that releases the lever. So it could be a bad brake light switch (does the car have brake lights--if not, there you go), a bad fuse to the brake lights, a bad solenoid, or faulty wiring.
In the meantime, you can release the lever in most cars by inserting a screwdriver into a little slot next to the gearshift. You may have to pry up a little plastic tab to do this.
