Guys,

My side box latch fell off today.. After looking at the latch I found it was installed with weatherstripping sealant. I showed this to my Nissan dealer who then ordered me a new one. He said it should have been installed with bracket with clips...Could someone take a picture of the inside part of the latch so I can see what this should look like?

:crying:

Lizardking,

I don't quite understand what piece fell off. The cover over the keywhole? OR are you talking about the latch on the inside of the box.

Can you take a picture to tell us what you mean. I looked at the inside of my box and I don't see anything that could fall off.

The plastic latch on the outside that covers and give access to key fob. The latch secures on the inside of box with what looks like clips. It's not the metal latch inside the box it's part of the plastic latch on the outside of box.

Did the surrounding piece also come off?

I'm going to go take pictures.

yes... The whole thing came off (plastic latch) and the key fob and metal latching mechanism stayed in because it's a seperate unit.

The outside latch is secured in the inside of the box by clips or bracket.

Lizard,

Here are the photos. You can't tell anything from the inside the box view.
Whoa!!! I don't even have a cover on the inside of the box covering the latch mechanism...Can that cover be removed to see what's on the inside.

If there is a way, I don't know how. I could probably yank on it to try to pull it off, but I think I'll just leave it on for the time being. :)
