    tried this a couple of days ago.
    The disassembly was pretty straight forward. untill the removing filter part came.

    It was very tricky to get it out with the little bar in the way.
    I broke the plastic edges on my filter (which had probobly never been washed or replaced ever).

    i just had a look in the service manual where instructions for air vent filter replacement is located.

    When i had a look on the disasembly instructions this is what I found.

    4. Remove the instrument panel reinforcement.
    5. Cut the instrument lower panel along the guidelines.
    WTF!!!
    Is it me having English as a second language or is actually Nissan saying that I have to cut in the interior (non-visible) of the car to replace a filter??

    you can have a look for yourselfs.

    I don't see any problems with cutting the plastic bit as it doesn't support anything, but daaamn. Why is the plastic bar there in the first place?

    well i dont really know its just what the guys do at work

    i'd take a guess that its to keep the bacteria killing stuff inside the car to do its job

    Could someone confirm that I've got the cut the plastic-bar part right. I've now ordered a new filter from japan (4800JPY from perfectrun) and want to know if I've got things right

    From 200sx.org

    The 'plastic beam' is meant to be cut away as per the Nissan service manual. It has 'cut lines' at each end & apparently was only req'd for initial dash manufacture. The steel panel does the structural supporting.

    It can be done without cutting that plastic panel. Just takes a bit more time and care I suppose.

    If its not required, nor visible, I think I'll just cut it when my filter arrives. Makes cleaning it in future much simpler...

    Same here. I don't want to risk ruining my brand new filter and wait for a new one.
    Already broke the existing filter when I was taking it out for a wash

    OK. So now the filter is here
    Really fast work by perfect-run. 6 days from payment to having the package here today
    Just to make things clear. The filter is supposed to be white
    i first thought that the filter was supposed to be blue... And after the wash, I though it was supposed to be grey



    Part number seems to be AY680-NS012
