looks like a plastic tab that covers the screw is missing, but don't quote me on that
I did not intend to say that it is a Nissan thing but a cost saving move . I know lot's of companies are doing that these days. How did you like new Hyundai?The "no key hole" on the passenger side isn't a Nissan thing. Most car makers are doing this...my dad bought an '07 Dodge Ram last night and it doesn't have a key hole on the passenger side either, same with a 2012 Hyundai Accent we rented last month.
