Your Altima is equipped with a glove box in the front. This is a perfect place for storing items, particularly valuables that you don’t want to leave lying around inside the car while you’re parked. To use the glove box, follow these steps:

  1. To open the glove box, pull the handle.

  2. To close the glove box, push it shut.

  3. To lock the glove box, use the master key (right to unlock, left to lock).

Tip

Never drive with the glove box open. It can injure the legs of anyone sitting in the passenger front seat.
