Default Aircon Filter Replacement

Decided to replace my aircon filters after about a year in use and this is what I found:

Inlet side:



Outlet side:



Hard to see exactly how dirty the inlet side really is. It certainly captures some crap over a year.

Cheers

Ray

Since the original post was lost, here's a recap on how I did the aircon filter conversion.

The original set of clean filters, positioned the way that they should be inserted into the aircon box:



After taking off the glove compartment (take out five or six screws and remove the compartment as one unit), you'll see where you have to cut the existing filter casing with a sharp Stanley knife or the like (marked in red). It cuts quite easily, so don't go at it too hard:



Once the piece has been removed, you'll see that there is a track for each filter along which they will slide. Insert the top filter first and then the bottom filter (each filter has a rail and guide, so they only go in one way):



This image shows how I fitted the filters originally, but then I swapped them so that the clip is at the bottom (ie the little lug on each filter is at the bottom, as in the first photo):



Just replace the glove compartment and that's all there is to it.

Cheers

Ray

EDIT: Seeing as pics are missing for some reason, here's a grab from a much later post by festy showing where the cut is made and includes another link to more pics.

About $40 from Nissan (for the two filters).

Cheers

Has anyone fitted these to a GU2? Just making sure the slots are there for them. Noticed Ray's is a newer 2008 model.

Just called Nissan and they want $49ea.. Will check with Nizzbits too - these are not in stock and will come from Melbourne.

Just take the cover off and you'll see if they are the same. The price is for two filters, they're sold as a box and listed as each.

Cheers

Ohh and it seems that the part number above is for a single pollen filter cartridge.

There is another number for the marketing kit which comes with 2x Filters, sticker and the extra clips. MK27C-79925 - $95 - go figure!

The only reason I mentioned that the box is listed as each, but contains two filters, is because when I ordered two filters from Nissan (which I could claim back on my novated lease) and got two boxes ie four filters. And it cost about $80.

Cheers

Ray

I dont think the filters come with AU spec Patrols, only overseas versions. It would appear that the provision is there for them, but they were left out ? I just ordered a box as per Ray's number above - should be here tommorow - ill fit them on the weekend and report back if it all went to plan

The housing in the fan unit has the slots, once you cut out the blank facing (as shown in my pictures). The filters are housed in a frame that matches the slots.

Cheers
