I have 2013 Versa 1.6 SL, my cabin filter is replaced at dealer with NISSAN Part #27277-1KK0A, this time I want to change it myself, I measure the size of it is 8.86in wide * 8.27in tall * 0.79in thickness. I purchase the Amazon basic cabin air filter 8.46” x 8.46” x 0.75” for replacement, thought it may fit, but it is a little bit taller, it can still fit in, but with a little bit bend. Also the thickness of Amazon product is less then it claim for 0.75in, it is only 0.67in, so it will not full fill the cabin air filter box.
I wish I could see this first, I will try those cabin filter list on the first page.
I also have a question about the cabin filter picture your post on the first page, which cabin filter are your measured in the picture?

"does not have the door"?... so air comes out of the cabin air filter opening? If so, not a lot of air will come out of the dash vents or the front defroster. If there is no air blowing out, then I would suspect the door is in place or someone taped up the opening.

The first gen filter you are talking about (with the integrated door) WILL NOT fit the Note, not even close. Believe me I tried! Ended up throwing the filter away.

BTW, I just replaced my filter for the 4th time. Ended up getting it from RockAuto this time. Around $10 shipped (ATP CF-102).
So you used ATP CF-102, but the filter pleats is in a vertical position.
How do you squeeze this through the door?

Hi,

It's been years since I chimed in on this forum and in this thread in particular... Well, in case it wasn't mentioned, I have found a filter I'm happy with on that awful, job-killing website Amazon...


Might I add that my transmission SUCKS. 72k on my 2015 Nissan Versa Note SV and the transmission is awful and the engine runs really rough (which I hope is only spark plugs). I've checked it for a blown head gasket, no combustion gasses in the coolant... Whew! I'm just trying to get the class action lawsuit to help me out although I know they'll just put in the same transmission and it'll fall apart again. I'll NEVER buy another Nissan unless it's pre or post Renault or given to me (I can dream, can't I?) The service guy at an area dealership said flat out that, because of the transmissions, he'd never recommend a friend to get a Nissan... Great cars, otherwise.

CVTs are the curse of the ecological system. Cars that would normally last 200k are dying young deaths, creating more waste with its remains AND creating the need for a newer car to be built. Thank you, EPA...

It’s a bit odd that Nissan decided not to include a cabin air filter feature on the 2013-2014 Nissan Versa Sedan and the 2014 Nissan Versa Note. Maybe it is to reduce their Overall Cost of Ownership or they were trying to save every penny on the “Lowest Priced New Car in America”. Apparently, Nissan actually has a place for a filter and even has an access door. The only thing missing is a filter. Here are the instructions on how to add the feature that Nissan left off.

WHATS NEEDED:

TOOLS: No tools are needed for this project.

FILTER MEDIA: Nissan does not seem to have a filter of the proper size to fit the cabin filter cavity. The proper sized filter that will work is intended for a Hyundai Accent/Veloster/Genesis Coupe/Tucson or Kia Rio/Forte/Rondo/Sportage with the following brand/codes:

WIX 24684
ATP CF102
Pronto PC4684
Denso 4536005
MAHLE LA301


NVF Member Waterscape added the following PN which should also work:
Microgard (Orielly Brand) 3673
Purolator C35865
STP CAF1820P
NAPA FIL 4684 / SFI 224684

Please note: It is advisable to avoid using carbon type filters as they are difficult to squeeze into the filter cavity.

The filter looks like this, with these rough dimensions. Please note the orientation of the pleats and the directional arrow for the airflow on one of the sides when installing the filter.







PLEASE WATCH THIS VIDEO BEFORE STARTING
This video will give you an idea on how the filter is installed. Please note that on the Versa, the access door is on the passenger side and not on the driver side.

Cabin air filter replacement- Nissan Sentra - YouTube


The cabin filter access door on the Versa can be located against the inside firewall on the passenger side footwell towards the center of the car.

Note: Unlike the video or other cabin filter replacement, the Versa's cabin air filter door can be accessed without removing the glove box or any other panels.



Pull down gently on door cover until it unlatches (refer to video) and remove the door cover.



This is the cabin air filter cavity where the filter will go into.



Inside the filter cavity.



Install the filter as shown on the video BUT please note the following:

1. The airflow direction of the filter should be pointing towards the back of the car.

2. Note the dimensions of the filter, the wide (9”) side should be horizontal. On most filters, the orientation of the filter pleats will end up in a vertical position (unlike what is shown on the video).

3. The filter door is smaller than the filter itself so it has to be compressed for it to pass through the door (again this is shown on the video). The filter should pop right back up once inside the cavity.

4. Carbon type filters are generally stiffer than regular filters and may require more effort to compress as it is installed.

Replace the L shaped door. Make sure you latch the top and bottom portion so the door stays in place. ALL DONE!

Thanks to all the people who contributed to the forum thread. If you want to read the whole thread on how this evolved, here is the link: Cabin Filter 2014 Note

REVISION 1: Removed the carbon type filters on the list above and added a note to avoid using them for this application. A forum member reported difficulty squeezing a carbon type filter to fit the filter cavity.

You can also use Nissan Part# 27277-9ME0A

Thank you for providing this part number. eBay no longer has OEM filters under Part #27278-1KK0A. eBay does have OEM filters under Part #27277-9ME0A. From the eBay photos, the only difference appears to be that the 27277-9ME0A filter is carbonized (i.e. black) whereas the 27278-1KK0A filter is not (i.e. it is white).
