Hand book

There was no hand book with my new car, I've looked on ebay but no joy, so I've emailed Nissan directly, this is what I wrote, I hope they can help.

I recently bought a 2nd hand 09 Nissan Note Tekna, I am absolutely delighted with the car, but there is one small problem.
The car did not come with a hand book & whilst I am gradually working out what all the buttons & switches do, my beloved husband is having problems. He does not drive as he had an industrial accident many years ago & is now partially sighted, but he is a very enthusiastic co -pilot when I drive & he is driving me mad. He is constantly asking me 'What does this do?' & 'What happens when I press this?'. It's like driving with a disruptive toddler in the car, I have driven through France & Spain with 4 children & believe me, that was easier. I have come to terms with never listening to a track on the radio all the way through as he likes to change channels, I can also drive without using the rear view mirror as he is fiddling with the interior lights. But although I love all  bells & whistles on the Tekna almost as much as I love my husband, his constant fiddling & questions are a problem. Please can you help? It would be a shame if such an otherwise kind & loving husband should die from being pushed out of the car whilst travelling at speed.

Have you tried this link? (You'll need to copy and paste it as I seem unable to do a direct link)

Not sure if it's exactly the same model but hope it helps until you get a hard copy!

Poor you. I hope they send you back a book. My husband is a bit like that or is that all men! Whenever I have changed my cars he reads the car manual then takes great pleasure in telling me what all the buttons do. I get frustrated because I want to find out by myself.

Have a look at the Nissan note owners club.

I can relate to your post. My husband is visually impaired due to a stroke (11 years ago) and he, too, fiddles with the buttons, dials, etc. while I am driving. It is very annoying at times.
