This is for a 2003 model, yours should be the same. Remove the (7?) philips screws on the glove box and a clip holding the right side by the door.

There are two pages of instructions here (straight from the Nissan service manual):

2002 530i "OIL" microfilter - DOES THIS PART EXIST?

THe microfilter is just the filter. The oil filter is available off the shelf at advance auto parts. It's the original equipment German brand, "Mann". It's about $12.00. The price of $300 you were quoted is more the range for a transmission oil change, not engine oil.

Don't be confused about the word"microfilter". Again, it just means the filter, same as any other car.

Cabin filter 2001 xterra

Remove glove box and in cabin microfilter door will be right there. Note on some Xterras there is no filter installed and the box will need to be cut out in order to install kit. This is a fairly easy task that can be done in the vehicle. Just follow the directions and you should be ok.
