Here it is step by step (from my 07 KC SE) (Will update with filter pics in the near future)






1) Empty and open your lower glove box.





2) Squeeze the sides in so that you can open the door further down, like it's going to fall out.





3) Detach the cord, the clasp on it will stop it from going in.




4) Look up and right, there's the cover to the air filters.





5) Carefully open the lid, don't break the tab.




Pic coming soon.
6) Slide the first one out, then put your finger into the right and slide
this filter left to remove it. Place new filter in with the arrows down. You have to put one in and slide it to the right then squeeze the other in.





Pic coming soon.
7) Put the cover back on. I broke my tab so I have to use a zip-tie to keep it on.





8) Pull string back up over the white post and attach to the door.




pic coming soon
9) Squeeze the door sides in and push back into place.



This takes me about 2 minutes now that I know what's going on and requires no tools.

The shop manual says arrows up. Mine came out with arrows up. So I went back arrows up but you say arrows down. Please advise.

Insert the first new in-cabin microfilter into the front heater and cooling unit housing and slide it over to the right. Insert the second new in-cabin microfilter into the front heater and cooling unit housing. NOTE: The in-cabin microfilters are marked with air flow arrows. The end of the microfilter with the arrow should face the rear of the vehicle. The arrows should point downward. This is from Motor All Data.

Just copied and pasted this from the Nissan manual. Arrow pointing down also!!!

Thanks for this post.  Just changed it out myself, and I wanted to share my thoughts.

  • First, you will break the tab.  I don't see how you can't.  It hard inflexible plastic.  There's an additional tab that looks as if it were designed to take a nut/bolt to the left.  Use a twist tie around that as suggested.  Don't worry we're only in there once a year.
  • Mine also came out with the arrows pointing up, and that's how I installed the replacement.

This is straight from The Nissan Service Manual

IN-CABIN MICROFILTER
Revision: November 2005 2005 Frontier
IN-CABIN MICROFILTER PFP:27277
Removal and Installation EJS003OV
FUNCTION
The air inside the passenger compartment is filtered by the in-cabin
microfilters when the heater or A/C controls are set on either the
recirculation or fresh mode. The two in-cabin microfilters are located
in the heater and cooling unit assembly.
REPLACEMENT TIMING
Replacement of the two in-cabin microfilters is recommended on a regular interval depending on the driving
conditions. Refer to MA-7, "PERIODIC MAINTENANCE" . It may also be necessary to replace the two in-cabin
microfilters as part of a component replacement if the in-cabin microfilters are damaged.

REPLACEMENT PROCEDURE

1. Open the lower glove box and press in on the sides so that it will
open completely allowing it to hang by the cord.

2. Remove the screw and remove the in-cabin microfilter cover.

3. Remove the in-cabin microfilters from the heater and cooling
unit housing.

4. Insert the first new in-cabin microfilter into the heater and cooling
unit housing and slide it over to the right. Insert the second
new in-cabin microfilter into the heater and cooling unit housing.

NOTE:
The in-cabin microfilters are marked with air flow arrows. The
end of the microfilter with the arrow should face the rear of the
vehicle. The arrows should point downward.

5. Install the in-cabin microfilter cover.

6. Close the lower glove box completely.

My truck didnt come with filters and i had to cut out the plastic where they were supposed to go, but it was visably marked where you had to cut and the rest is the same.

I have a 2002 Frontier XE, 2WD 2.4L.  It appears that it doesn't have cabin air filters - can see where they might go but don't want to start cutting before I'm sure.  Any guidance - mine looks nothing like what sin pics in this thread - rather it appears filter go in vertically as suggested in 2002 manual.  Thanks for any help.
