It's truly idiotic that it's not accessible without taking off the glove box.Ok so was this car designed by mickey mouse? Never had to take 8 screws off to get behind a glove box. I was expecting it to look worse then it did after 2 years

LOL!It's truly idiotic that it's not accessible without taking off the glove box.
Only reason I went with the one I bought is because I couldn't find one here at any Canadian auto part store, and the dealership wanted a ridiculous amount for one.Is there any reason not to use the NAPA brand filter? Several stores in my area offer the WIX filter or other brands as special orders (wait several days and pay shipping) but NAPA is the only store I've found that has them in stock in their local store. Thanks.
Rub it in.:45:That sucks that it broke. It was one of the easiest things to change on my own.
Thanks! I will be replacing mine shortly. Just gotta figure out how to avoid paying too muchI just replaced mine today. Now that I've done it, a couple of observations:
You DON'T need to remove the glove box. It would be helpful to remove the small kick panel in the passenger footwell at the leading edge of the console however. This is easily done by turning the plastic screw 1/4 turn 'till it pop's out, then pull out. The panel can now be removed by pulling outward.
Reach up toward the top of the filter up near the firewall and pull the end of the filter that forms the cover out. Then lift upward to clear the bottom tab.
Take a look at the new filter first. There's loose filter media above the cover that'll confuse you if you remove the old filter without realizing it's configuration.
You can buy the filters online from the site I listed above. Very cheap. Then simply change it at home, it's very easy. I was able to change mine and the SER (which was much more of a pain then the Versa) all by myself.Thanks! I will be replacing mine shortly. Just gotta figure out how to avoid paying too much
