block heater cord

Hello, I bought an 08 Altima 2.5, and I never asked where the cord for the block heater is. Now it's -40 here in Alberta, and I do not want to send to much time outside on my back trying to find the cord. Any ideas where i CAN FIND IT QUICK?

Yes. it is located right behind the front bumper. It is located on the passenger side. It will not come from underneath the bumper. You will have to reach in through one of the little bumper openings in the front and pull it out.

If you want, I can take a picture of it for you.

Exactly. If you just kneel down and look through the front openings of the bumper on the passenger side, you will be able to see a black cord that has a plastic ripple sheath over it, tied down against the radiator. Just gently pull on it, and you'll be able to pull it through.

Yes. I'll take a picture of it in a few minutes for you and post it. Just give me a little while to do it.

Hope these pictures help. Sorry if they are a little unclear, they were taken with a cellphone.

I just bought a 2008 Altima last week, I was pretty sure the saleman said there was a block heater but I looked at two cars on the lot and I couldn't remember which one we were looking at when he said it.

I looked for 10 mins tonight trying to find the cord and couldn't find it, I'm used to it being up top on my old Chevy. Thanks to the search button and your pics I went back to the garage and found it in 2 seconds. Thanks a lot!

So far I love the car and I'm loving this forum.
