illuminated glove compartment


My 2012 SL (picked up tonight) was missing any illumination of the glove box. I had the "chevy hole". The demo car my dealer had was the same way. I documented the omission in writing before closing the deal. The plan is the dealer will contact corporate to fix this.

Thank you!

I will be contacting my dealer about this as well (would have just shook my head and shrugged at them saving a dollar in such a dumb way, but since they failed to stop advertising the feature, it is a different story...)

The fix or parts for the fix are on Back order according to my dealer and I think I was the first one to question this.
Maybe all the 2012 owners have called thier dealer :lol:

Got a call from the dealer that the new glove box is in

I hope all those with the missing part are contacting their dealers, remember that they will need to order the complete glove box assembly, as Nissan in their wisdom does not list the cover as an available part and the dealer may not be aware of this

Just got back from the dealer .. parts guy said that there is no glove box light for 2012 models at all but he did order a plastic cover to fill the hole. Which is at odds with other posters here who have discovered that the whole glove box has to be replaced. Guess the parts guys will find out soon enuff. No problem, as long as there is room for my pistos, extra magazines and vodka bottles.
