I’m changing the passenger side valve cover gasket on my 97 Pathfinder. I got back an original Nissan gasket but I’m using the Felpro grommets.

I know the original setup has a rubber grommet inside a metal washer. Can the Felpro grommets work with the metal washers from Nissan?

Or do I simply use the felpro grommets by themselves? Because I noticed the felpro grommets have one side thats metal and the other side is rubber. If so which side should I put facing up or down.

Thanks

The metal side should be facing up otherwise the bolt head will dig into the rubber possibly ripping it. Who needs another oil leak!
