pollen filter on 370

Recommended Posts

Ask Alex.... :pmzmanalex: He will tell you.

 

If there is not one fitted, sounds a rip off as the pollen filter on every car I've had only got changed every P3 service

 

I would immediatly remove my car from there if they are trying to rip you off. :thumbdown:

Apart from the very early models the 370Z has a pollen-filter. (I believe it was introduced in end of 2009). Nissan recommend to replace it at every 18 month or 18k miles whichever sooner, but it still can be dirty ask them to show it to you the new one white and clan as it gets older it's turning black from the dust.

got one of these today

 

First off. there are 7 screws total. Screw #6 is sort of a hidden screw.

 

Remove screw 1 -> 4. if you have a super long screw driver then remove 5 -> 7 also, if not then read next step.

Next pull off the glove box. Grab the 2 spots circled in red and pull upwards. This allows you VERY easy access to screws 5 -> 7 as well as a much easier time removing the panel. This step is OPTIONAL, but as i mentioned, it gives you easy access to screws 5 -> 7 and it also gives you a spot to grab panel to pull it off. To put the glove box back, just line up the hinge and pop it back in.

Next GENTLY pull off the panel starting from the RIGHT side first. You don't wanna damage that extension area on the right side by pulling too hard on the left. Insert finger where the arrows are and grab the bottom with your other hand and pull. Do the same on the other side.

Removing the glove box lanyard is optional (actually, mines popped off as i was figuring how to put the glove box back in after accidentally removing it) but it gives you more space to work with.

Remember, pull GENTLY, you shouldn't have to pull hard after removing the hidden screw, #6.

The rest you can follow caneman88's to install/replace the filter. I just have one thing that I found might be useful and that is to cut 4 slots on the bottom of the filter wall so that you can close the vent door without smashing the filter. You'll know what i mean when you take off the vent door. Just line up the slots with the 4 things on the door and make like a 1/4" -> 1/2" cut. See pic for approx locations, measure the actual location with the vent door.

Yes the arrow on the filter points down. Air is sucked from the top and down into the circular thing.

 

I assume you guys know how to reverse the directions to put everything back.

 

Ok here is what to do if you want clean air inside your Z.

Bought the in cabin filter at Autozone for the Maxima seems like a lot of the Nissan's use the same filter.

1.About 6 screws to take glove box out then pull hard.

2.Open the vent door be careful the tab on the left on trap door breaks easy.

3.Insert filter and reassemble had to use a penny to hold left side tab broke.

4.Breathe the Clean Air.

5.Crank up the Red Hot Chili Peppers

I changed mine yesterday, it looks a lot more complicated than it is, took approx 20min (being careful as the interior panels scratch so easily)

 

old one was pretty clean apart from a few leaves :wacko:

I changed my filter today and also used the Crosland filter, I'm just after a bit of info from the guys that have also used this filter. The Nissan one slides out with the writing / part number facing you (the rigid part). The Crossland filter is the same size but the soft part of the filter would be facing you when it is inserted, thus the rigid sides are on the opposite sides. Also the filter fins are then the opposite way, does anybody know if this is likely to cause any issues, I notice richf said he trimmed his filter down :)

Looks nearly as bad to fit as ford focus ones. The one on my bmw 123d took me litterally 2 minutes to do the other week. Undo 6 10mm bolts in bulk head using my 10mm socket on a cordless drill, pop old pollen filer out, pop new one in, and refit the bolts. Filter cost me £4 from amazon for a decent Mann one.

 

BMW wanted to charge me £70 to do it.

Hi GIXXERUK, I fit it with the airflow arrows the correct way, but when I inserted the filter as above it was too long to fit correctly as can be seen by richf pictures!

I'm not sure if it's the pics but the one Richfi has doesn't look square, mine was, I have to admit it was a tighter fit than the old one but I didn't need to trim it

 

the crosland is also thicker

Cheers, I will see how it goes, my filter is rectangular rather than square also, like I said it went in but the opposite way ;)

On my mobile, square is easier to type :lol: what I meant was straight edges ;)

 

It looks worse to do than it is
