Agree, very easy for a DIY, save your money you can buy the filters at http://www.rockauto.com. for about $10. + shipping, part WIX #49352enzo100 wrote:I'm not sure why you would waste your time removing the gas pedal when all you have to do is bend a filter that is already flexible. I think the gas pedal removal was a scare tactic by Nissan so you would take it in.
true but if you buy a few for the years ahead as you are supposed to change the cabin filter every year or get some engine air or oil filters you will still come out ahead than buying at a Nissan dealerkerrton wrote:Great site, online catalogue with every part imagineable for the Rogue, LOW prices, but the only problem is that shipping to Canada is $27 bucks, which cancels out any price savings. Disappointing.
International shipping stated is $24.US by usps on ebay site not $10. but the filters are approx $10 Cnd. Not a bad pricePescakl1 wrote:I did it yesterday night when I received my filters: Instructions are for the Sentra but are the same for the Rogue.It said 5 minutes to change it, it took me about 7, because I spend about 2 minutes to find how to put filter door in place.Do not hesitate to squeeze the middle part of the filter to insert it, it will take it form back as soon as you move it back and forth a bit in its location.The most important tool you need is a flashlight as it is dark over there.
For my fellow canadian friends, I found a cheaper seller than Rockauto (shipping is a little bit expensive over there): http://shop.ebay.ca/trustednam...cat=0Multiple shipping is inexpensive (I bought 4 for about $10 shipping).For this price, do not expect bubble wrap and so on, they wrap the boxes together and write your address on it, but they arrive without any damage.
Sorry Roguester, it seems my purchase did not go unnoticed .I paid 46.41 US$ for 4 filters shipped to my home.It seems they saw they were losing money on their shipping, since then, they change the shipping fee to a fixed one.roguester wrote:International shipping stated is $24.US by usps on ebay site not $10. but the filters are approx $10 Cnd.

Just curious what was the condition of your filter and after how many klsPescakl1 wrote:

For information, I did not use any screwdriver to remove the cover, just pulled it out, with not that much effort.To remove the old one, push it in the middle to squeeze it and you will be able to grab the upper part of the filter.
No need to touch either the gas or the brake pedal to do the job.
Agreed. They need to offset the high costs of running the showroom, since we all know how little profit is made actually selling the car itself.kerrton wrote:This has nothing to do with the way the vehicle is designed and everthing to do with big Nissan dealerships having to rip people off to pay for their HUGE showrooms.
Did the filter swap tonight. The old one was nearly black and full of debris! Should've changed it sooner.philipa_240sx wrote:NAPA Auto Parts is carrying the cabin air filter: Part # 9352 or FIL9352
I was able to source one in Canada... cost is a bit more. It delivers from their warehouse within 24 hrs usually. I will report back more one I replace mine
Gently pry the panel open from the RH side closest to the seat (when looking straight at the panel). It's held by 2 clips that will 'pop' when disengaged. Once loosened, slide the panel towards the seat. If you pry from the opposite side (LH side), you may break the small tab that holds the LH side of the panel. The metal 'S shaped' tab in the lower right corner of the photo below is what holds the panel in place near the accelerator. This is the area you DO NOT want to pry. To replace the panel, slide the LH side in this tab first, then align and push the RH side in place until it 'pops'.psfod3 wrote:When you remove the side panel of the console do you have to be concerned about breaking any clips or can you just pull the side panel stright out ?
Not difficult but Nissan engineers can learn a lot on the simplicity of accessing the cabin filter on a Toyota where all you have to do is open the glove compartment extending past the stop tab and the filter slides behind it w/o any compressing the sides of filter or bending it to get by of an in a way brake and gas pedals as in the Nissankerrton wrote:sileung,
I am not a Do it Yourself kind of guy, but I did this job myself and believe me it is soooooo simple. Here's all you need to know:
To remove the panel, just pull hard on the right side of it, 3 pressure clips will "pop" and release. They won't break, they're designed to pop in and out with force like this. Then, once the right side 3 clips have popped, slide the whole panel towards you/to the right, and it's off. Then just have a look a the back side and you'll immediately see how it slides into a slot to hold the left side in place, it's very obvious.
Then, remove the cover that holds the filter in place (see photos) - pull up on the BOTTOM of it, you'll see a lever to pull on to do this. It'll release gently. Set it aside and then just work on pulling the old filter out and sliding the new one in, this will take a bit of time because there isn't much room up there to get your fingers in, and the filter is a little larger than the opening so you have to fiddle with it, but just be patient and you can screw it up.
The snap the two covers back on and you're done, took me 20 minutes and if you're really cautious it might take 30. So easy, anybody can do it.
