Behind the glove box. A member on the InfinitiJXForum.com posted step by step directions a couple years ago and included pictures. Try doing a search on both forums.

I removed the glove box. Filter is not there. All the instructions on the various web sites talk about older models, not the current model.

All I remember is that it is buried back behind the glove box. I had the dealership replace it on my first major service. It is a pain to get to. Im not sure if the newer models had a change in location.

You do have to remove the glove box, but it's actually behind the center console... It's vertical and a PITA to get out...

You mean "do NOT" right? The cabin filter is in the front passenger foot well (high up). I've replaced it twice, gets easier and easier, but it's a pain the first time.

I've always removed the glove box to do it. Maybe next time I'll try harder, but I keep saying I'll never do it, again!

Cabin air filter

There are 2 different types of cabin air filter depending on which option your car has.
Access to the cabin air filter as other have noted is from the front right passenger footwell.
The cabin filter is on the left behind that panel - first photo.
Pull the panel out from the back, by the red circle and just pull gently and work your way carefully back.
2nd photo shows the panel removed and all the connectors.
3rd photo shows the cover to access the air filter - you have to push that tab up and tilt away and the cover will fall straight down.
4th photo is the air filter - you'll have to grab it and squeeze it like an accordian to get it out.

Hope that helps.

Great pics and thanks for the info. Was looking to do this shortly also but I see it's not an easy thing to change. Will give it a try once it gets a bit warmer.

I was hoping this wasn't the case in removing the filter. I had to do one on my parent's 08 Murano...PITA was it. I think I end up snapping the string that holds the glove box. Can't wait when its time to do it!
