SOURCE: how to change 2006 Nissan Pathfinder microcabin filter

To change the cabin air filters (there are two, that are in same location), you first have to remove the glovebox. The glovebox itself will not come off. You have to get a phillips head screwdriver to remove the 5 screws. With the glovebox closed, locate the two screws underneath and remove, one on each side. Next open the glovebox, remove the two screws at the top. The fifth screw is on the right behind the plastic molding. Pull back on the top of the lower piece of molding until the bracket pops out. The piece of plastic located just above that piece needs to be pulled out. No need to take it out all the way, just enough to get to the screw. Once removed, with the glovebox open take the fuse panel cover to the right off to allow you better grip. Pull both sides evenly until glove box pops out.
Get a flashlight and shine it on the right side behind where the glovebox was. There is a small plastic cover about 1 inch tall by 5 inches long. It is clipped in place. Push up on the plastic clip with your thumb while pulling out and down with your other finger/fingers. Behind this is one filter. Remove it best you can. Be careful, mine had dead bee's/wasps/dust/dirt/pinestraw/etc. After removing the first, you will notice a second one to the right of that. Slide that one to the left and remove the same way as the first. Look at those filters when you remove and take note the direction of AIR FLOW ^marking. Before replacing with the new ones, vacuum out inside where the filters go as best you can to remove all that crud that fell off of the old filters when removed.
Reinstallation is the reverse of how you removed. I hope this helps all my fellow Pathfinders out there.

SOURCE: trying to change the cabin air filter

1. Open glove box
2. Unhook elastic retainer on right side
3. Locate the two "stop tabs", one on the upper left and the other on the right side. Push both to the left to clear their stops and the glove box will swing down, allowing access to the filter cover.

SOURCE: cabin filter element location

Filter is located behind the glove box. All you need is a screwdriver to replace.

1. Open the glove box and empty to take the weight off the box.

2. On the right side there is a plastic hinge like device held on by one Phillips head screw. If you have trouble removing with a Phillips screwdriver you can remove with a narrow flat head screwdriver. Remove the screw and slide hinge off the mount.

3. To drop the glove box press the sides slightly inwards while 'forcing' it open beyond it's normal stopping point. Careful as when it releases it will fall wide open and may even fall from its hinged area. Set it aside.

4. Behind the glove box there is probably some fiberous material inserted to prevent noise like squeaking when it rubs. It is sticky on one side to hold it in place. Just remove and place out of the way.

5. Behind the fiberous material there'll be a cover which kinda looks like a grille. Mine was white and it is in the center of the opening. Remove it by releasing the clips at the left or right. It comes right out.

6. When the cover comes off slide the filter out and replace it. The filter lays flat and just slides in and out easily. However, if it has been some time since you replaced be prepared for a lot of debris on top of the filter such as leaves, grass or other general type of debris that has been sucked into the filter. It also may be the source of any bad odors that you smell through the air conditioning system.

7. Reverse the process. Replace the cover and push the glove box lid back into place. When you replace the glove box be careful to make sure the hinge you initiallly removed the screw from is not left behind the glove box or you will have to remove again to get it out. Replace the screw and do not over tighten as it screws into plastic and then your done.

I assume you mean the cabin air filter. The engine air filter is easy, assuming you've changed one on any other car before (hint: it's a box with some clips on the right side). The cabin air filter is a bit more involved, see below.

Code P2A00 what does this mean. service engine comes on & off it seems to come on more offen the hoter it is outside. put 2 performance chips in car 1st chip is on MAF sensor it tells the system the...


The code indicates a problem with Air/Fuel mixture, and it is very possible with the "chips" you installed, the A/F ratio the ECM sees is out of tolerance. As far as inspections is concerned, you may need to remove the chips and reset the ECM before you go for inspection.

How do i change the cabin air filter in my 2003 ford expidition


Locate the cabin air filter container on your Ford Expedition. If you are standing in front of the vehicle, looking at the engine, it will be on the back, left side of the engine, next to the heater fan. You will see a black cover over the top of the container. The air filter is approximately 6" x 9" and about 2" deep. Look for a black casing that will be about 10" across and 8" high. The box sits vertically against the firewall of the vehicle.
Step 2
Remove the cover of the cabin air filter by lightly prying on it with a screwdriver. The cover is secured with plastic tabs that pop off quite often. If this happens, you can buy replacements at your local automotive store.
Step 3
Remove the cabin air filter, and vacuum out the container to remove any dust or debris. Wipe it down with a clean damp cloth and let the inside of the container dry before inserting new filter.
Step 4
Place new cabin air filter in container and secure the cover, replacing tabs if needed. Remove tools from engine compartment and close hood.
Step 5
You are now able to enjoy driving with clean air flowing through the inside of your car.

Sometimes can be prematurely dirty air filter, sets off the air flow sensor, which sets off the o2 sensor. So might try new air filter first and erase codes and then see, before you spend more bucks than you need; then if codes return, do the flow mix sensor.
