Simple, you don't! Remove the passenger's side front tire and there is a little door from which you access the battery.
Actually, you do need to remove it. You can't access the terminal posts or the tie-down bracket from the access door. The good news is the process is straightforward, and you don't need to remove the tire.
First, turn the steering wheel all the way to the right. From here you can remove the six screws holding in the battery access panel.
Next, open the hood, unclip the air filter housing and remove the filter. It helps to get the cover up and out of the way by using a spare piece of wire and attaching it to the hood.
Now, you're ready to remove the air filter housing. On the right side of the housing (facing the car) you'll notice a fastener with no apparent means of removal. This is a friction grommet, akin to the snaps on a baby's shirt. Grip the housing right above this fastener and give it a firm pull upwards. The housing should pop out over the fastener. The left side is not fastened - there are two "bumpers" that hold it in place on that side.
Now you have complete access to the battery and can proceed with the replacement, sliding the battery out through the access door once it's been disconnected.
Finally, it's much easier to re-install the battery access door from the top, before re-installing the air filter housing. It's possible, but not easy from down below.

If you haven't figured it out yet, try the two links below. They have pics and diagrams. I haven't done this yet but, Nissan suggesting to have it done. (Sitting in the dealer having oil changed as we speak. They want $90 to replace the 2 filters.) I'm planning on doing it myself to save about $70. Doesn't look too difficult - just a little time. Parts are about $22 at local parts store. hope this helps. (Won't be back on this forum. So won't see any response you submit back).

Standing from the front of vehicle look in the engine compartment, on the right side of engine and behind the batterry. There is a black box with a 3" flexible hose hook to it, pop up 4 clips and remove the cover then you see the air filter inside.
