Anyone know where to find or how to get to the cabin air filter? I'm approaching 15,000 miles and would like to check it.

What I meant was where do you find it in the vehicle and how do you remove it?

Thanks but it says "to replace the filter, contact your Nissan dealer". Since I don't trust them with an oil change, I don't trust them with this either. I just want to check it to see how dirty it is and possibly replace it myself if it needs it.

You need to unscrew the glovebox. The filter is behind that.

BTW, I did finally check my cabin air filter after 15,000 miles. This was no 5 minute job. Maybe about an hour. I pulled the filter out and it was pretty clean except for a few seeds and pine needles. So I vacuumed it out and put it back in. I don't plan on looking at it again until 30,000 miles at which time I'll probably replace it.

Don't worry about it. Everyone starts off as a non mechanic. Slowly you aquire tools, and soon you can fix everything on your car.

It wasn't extremely difficult, just "putsy" and awkward. You have to remove the glove box and side bracket, mostly phillips head screws, one with a plastic cover you have to snap off. The instructions in the service manual were NOT real clear and helpful. You sort of figure it out as you go along. Anyone with average skills should be able to do it.

In-cabin microfilter

Yesterday I replaced the in-cabin micro filter in by MO. It is a fairly easy job, took about 40 minutes total. Just remove seven (7) phillip screws and a clip holding the right side by the door. I just made one mistake, I forgot about the light in the glove box and broke the bulb when lowering the glove box unit. :3: Now I have to go to the dealer a get a new bulb then next weekend do the hole process over again. I hope to improve my time to about 30 minutes. Luckily this is a once a year job, but doing it your will save you $$ from having a dearer do it for you. Bought the filter on the internet for about $22.00 the dealer wanted about $85 for the job.

Has anyone tried to do it without removing the glovebox? I had looked earlier, and it seems like you could reach the micro door. It might be a little tight to do the work, but I think it would save a lot of time and frustration...or I could be completely wrong. :eek:

It is not hard to remove the glovebox. I wanted to skip this part too but found it was little more effort to remove the glovebox and do it the way recommended by the manufacturer. But you are right, you can actually see the cabin filter assembly without removing the glovebox. Just keep a cup handy to put all the screws you remove into.

Pollen Filter

1. I removed the three screws on the bottom strip
2. Open the glove box and remove the 2 screws, one on the right and the left.
3. And the 2 screws for the glove box striker.
4. Then wrestle the glove box assembly out.
5. Now you should have access to the filter cover.
****Caution remember to clip back in the light for the glove box****

Time about 3 minutes

If you open the glovebox and look above it, the cabin filter box is visible. If you had long skinny fingers, you can reach in there and change the filter. I changed my filter in the middle of the night in my garage so it was too dark to see clearly and reach into the gap, but I suppose it can be done. However, removing the screws takes maybe 10 minutes or so, still not too hard.
