2012 NISSAN Altima - Seat Adjustments
Seat Adjustments If your new vehicle is equipped with power adjustable seats, here's how to operate them. To make the seat slide forward or backward, look for this switch on the outer edge of the seat. Slide it forward or backward and the seat will move in that direction. To make the seat recline, move this RECLINE switch backward until you achieve the desired position. To bring it back upright, move the switch forward and lean forward. The seatback will return to the more upright position. If so equipped, the switch you use to move the seat forward and back can also be used as a seat lifter, adjusting the angle and height of the seat cushion. Move the front or rear end of the switch up or down to adjust the angle of the cushion. Then push down, or pull up on the middle of the switch to adjust the height. The lumbar support feature, if so equipped, provides lower back support to the driver. If your driver's seat is equipped with power lumbar support, push the front or back end of this switch to adjust the seat's lumbar area. If your vehicle is equipped with manual front seat adjustments, reach down and find this lever under the front seat. Pull up on it while you slide the seat forward or backward to a desired position. Release the lever to lock the seat in that position. To recline the front seatbacks manually, locate this lever on the outside of the seat base. Pull up, and lean back. To bring the seat back upright, pull the lever and lean forward. If your vehicle is equipped with a manual seat lifter; your seat height can be adjusted using this lever, located on the outside of the seat base. Pull up or push down on the lever to adjust the height of the seat. Release the lever when a comfortable position is achieved. If your driver's seat is equipped with manual lumbar support, you can adjust it by moving this lever up and down.

2012 NISSAN Altima - Manual Climate Controls
Manual Climate Controls (if so equipped) This is the climate control panel for adjusting air flow, fan speed and temperature inside the cabin. The FAN SPEED CONTROL Dial regulates fan speed at various settings. Turn left for slower speeds, or right for higher speeds. Turn the dial all the way to the left, to turn the system OFF. Press the A/C Button, in the middle of the TEMPERATURE CONTROL Dial, to turn the A/C ON or OFF. Turn the TEMPERATURE CONTROL Dial to the left for cooler, or to the right for warmer air. Use the AIR FLOW CONTROL buttons to select air flow outlets. Refer to the pictograms for the various air flow combinations. • Air will flow from center and side vents, • From center, side and foot vents, • Mainly from foot vents, • From the defroster and foot vents, • Mainly from the defroster vents. For quick cooling when the temperature is high, press the button in the center, marked MAX A/C. Note: in hot or humid conditions, a visible mist may be seen coming from the vents. This does not indicate a malfunction. To defrost or defog front and side windows, press the FRONT WINDOW DEFROST button. The indicator light will illuminate and air flow will be directed to the front and side windows. The A/C automatically activates when you select the Defrost mode and the outside temperature is above 36 degrees. This helps dehumidify the cabin and clear the windshield faster. Now turn the TEMPERATURE CONTROL Dial to a setting that will best meet weather conditions. For windshield deicing, your dial should be turned to maximum heat. Also, using the FAN SPEED CONTROL Dial, turn your fan speed to high. To defrost or defog the rear window and, if so equipped, the outside mirrors; push the REAR WINDOW DEFROSTER switch. The indicator light will illuminate. After defrosting, push to turn OFF. If not turned OFF manually, this feature will automatically deactivate in 15 minutes. To recirculate air inside your vehicle, press this AIR RECIRCULATION button, its indicator will light up. This helps A/C efficiency and helps block outside odors from entering the cabin. You will only be able to activate the air recirculation feature when non-defroster air flow settings are selected. Press again, to turn OFF the recirculation feature and allow fresh air from the outside to be drawn into your vehicle. Please be aware that while in Defrost modes, the Air Recirculation feature will not activate. Allowing outside air to enter the vehicle further improves defogging performance.
