I decided to change the air filters in my car. These things can get awfully dirty. I wanted to make a how to guide so people would know exactly how to do it. I hope this helps you.

----Instructions----

Before you begin, please have the following things ready
- a phillips screw driver
- a flathead screwdriver
- your replacement filters (They come in a pair from www.infinitipartsusa.com)

Now on to the filter replacement

1. Locate the kick panel right under your glove box (pic 1) . Remove the one hand screw that secures it, and pry the panel off.



2. Now that the panel is off, you can see why we had to remove it (pic 2). It blocked a key tab that is needed..you'll see in a bit.



3. The glovebox is held on by (6) screws. Locate the (2) on the bottom of the glovebox and remove them (pic 3).



4. Open the glovebox to reveal the remaining (4) screws, and remove them (pic 4).



5. Give the glovebox a firm tug towards you to remove it. Do not just let the glovebox fall or yank it quickly away from the dash. There is a glovebox light that is attached to the glovebox (pic 5). Make sure to give the connecter a slight turn, then the light will come right off.



6. Take off the entire glovebox and put it gently on the ground somewhere.

7. Ahhh, now you can see where those pesky filters are. But make sure to remove the little black clip on the bottom filter (pic 6). I used a flathead screwdriver and it popped right off.



8. Pull the old filters out, and slide those brand new white filters in (pic 7). I put a little white bucket underneath the filters because quite a bit of debris can come out including leaves, bugs, and whatever else.



9. After the filters are in, put on the little black clip, snap the glovebox back into place and replace the 6 screws.

10. The next part isnt hard, but requires a little finesse. You have to replace that little plastic kick panel you removed in step 1. But you have to make sure that the 2 tabs go into place, and that panel slides underneath the plastic door sill (pic 8). It takes a little bit of trying, but you will get it pretty quick. And finally secure the hand screw you took off in step 1.



11. Congrats! Crank up the A/C and smell the clean filtered air of job well done



Just a comparison shot of the two.

Great write-up!

Does anyone know the part number of these filters? They're the same as one of the Nissan's, but I can't remember - Frontier, XTerra, Pathfinder, Altima... ??

Cabin Air Filter PN

According to infinitiparts.com - whch sent me to trademotion.com, under the G20 Store, then Factory Accessories, then 1999-2002 (p11) the Part Number for the cabin air filter is:

In-Cabin Microfilter. Fits all models.
B7200-0W010
Each $30.59

I'm assuming the G20 club discount is off of that price.

Sweet

Nice write-up man! :) But damn... $30? That's pretty steep for just a filter... but then I guess it's worth the cost when it's all health related... :paranoid:

That is dirty! I don’t have a p11 but I’m going to consider changing out my filter now. I'm definitely sure most p10 owners, like myself, have dirtier filters than p11 owners. I have close to 150,000 miles, and I doubt the filter has ever been replaced by previous owners.

Some additional information/clarification , the price of $30.59 is for a SET of filters (1 carton), so you get two for that price (which is what's needed for replacement). In other words, you place an order for "1" and you'll get a pair of filters. Perhaps Justin might want to clarify that on the webpage.

Me being the ignoramus thought it was 30.59 PER filter element, so I ordered two!

Ah, well. Now I have a 2nd set for the next time I want to change out the filters

Just changed out mine (took all of 10 minutes), and they looked just like that 'before/after' pic that ninja gaiden posted...hehe
