the owners manual for the 2007 Altima says 'open the hood and unwrap the engine block heater cord'..so yours may be totally correct.
....my guess is that this is a 'one size fits all' part. The dealer should have a copy of the install sheet for the block heater accessory. I would go to the parts counter and ask to look at the sheet.
