In this write up we’ll be showing you how to remove the temperature control from a 2006 Nissan Altima. The temp control is the control panel on your dash that controls the air conditioning, heat and fan speed settings. Our AC controls are manual but this procedure should be the same for the automatic temp control. This is also identical for the 2005 Altima model year.

Disconnect your Battery – Always remove the negative terminal of your battery before working on your car. This will keep you and your cars electronics safe while you do repairs. Remember that you could potentially have to re-enter your radio code after reconnecting the battery so be sure to have that handy. Radio presets, seat memory, trip computers and info screens may also lose information and presets when you disconnect the battery.
Using a small flat head screw driver or prying tool, gently pull the trim piece away from the dash. You should feel the clips release as you pull the trim towards you. It’s best to pull the trim out with your hands once you have enough room to get a good grip on it.
When you pull the trim out you’ll see that the passenger air bag warning light is still attached. Using a small screw driver you can release the connector from the air bag light.
