Hard to believe that Nissan would have 2 different designs for the same model year but if you don't have that removable L-shaped door, then I cannot argue with you.

So, just to confirm (and satisfy my curiosity), are you saying that on your 2014 Note you have a cabin filter but it uses one that has the integrated plastic door?

Also, the video link you included is exactly what I have in my car.

Yes, there was a filter in that slot, however it was the one that uses the integrated plastic door. There's also a plastic end that's perpendicular to the door (maybe it's a bottom piece?). For it to fit, I just had to put the plastic part that isn't the door facing upwards (and move the wiring that goes to the vanity lighting).

I also bought the car used, so my guess is the previous owner either put that filter in there themselves or a shop did it. I might just make a door for it, so then I can use the "more correct" filter.

I have ordered 2 filters for my 2016 sedan from amazon. One had a plastic handle on it that partly held the element on 3 sides. It wouldnt fit. The one I ended up using was just a square paper/fabric like one that was flexible. Then you crumple it up to fit it inside and it expands to fill the opening and you pop off and put the plastic cap back on it.

No glovebox removal required. I just got down on my hands and chest in the passenger side floor and operated it on it.

Just one more filter that fits 2014 versa S. It appears to be a new filter made by Fram. It is a Fram Fresh Breeze #CF12237 . It is carbon activated with baking soda and cost $22 at Walmart. It was not difficult to install(I did remove the glove box though) and it fits perfectly. I added it under MyCarfax so I will have it on record with my other maintenance.

I just threw a $6 eBay CAF in my 2015 Versa S. It looked and felt just like the Nissan CAF it replaced. Just cleaner LOL.

Pretty sure my father-in-law pays the Nissan dealer $60 a pop to have his changed on their Rogue.

And ebay is where I will be getting my next one for sure. Thanks for the info. My local dealer charges $43 for the filter alone. They say they are very proud of their filter.

I guess they have nothing else to be proud of...

It is for sure a good source for CAFs and a fraction of the cost of parts stores. The only time I ran into an issue with a eBay/mail-order CAF was with a 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe I owned years ago. The no-name CAF I ordered didn't fit quite right. I've since bought them for Subarus, Hondas, Nissans, Ram, etc.. without issue.

What sucks about Nissan CAFs is they're a once and done filter given the way you have to squish them to get them in the housing and they typically tear on the way out. You can't really pull them out, vacuum them off and re-use them like you can with most vehicle CAFs, where their a rigid design.

Have a 2013 Versa 1.6 S and there is an opening like pictured but there is no door/bracket. Do I just use the paper filter or the one that they sell with the black plastic?

You need the filter that is like an accordion that you can squeeze to make if fit into the housing:
