When checking the gasket information for Nissan Almera 1.5 which selling in Malaysia market, the first thing of course we check on its engine code first, which clearly show "HR15DE" in their specification.
When checking in the catalog at HR15DE column, the intake manifold gasket OEM part number show 14035-ED000, which it is a rubber o-ring type of gasket, but the design for this intake manifold gasket is the type of the 4 round shape o-ring is joining together. But the local Almera with HR15DE engine as well, saw the intake manifold type is rubber o-ring type, but separate into 4pcs.
Judging with the OEM part number 14035-1HC0A on the label, which show this item is made in Thailand, may be this design is not for the Japan domestic market but for the exporting market outside Japan, anyway, this type of o-ring intake manifold gasket also can be found in HR12DE engine which is 3 cylinder type using in Nissan March, which this Nissan March model can be found in Japan domestic market.
