I ordered both the engine and cabin filter from Amazon for about $11 each. I went to two different auto parts stores - neither had the part in stock, one told me they could order both and it would take a week, and the price was outrageous! The ones I got from Amazon came in next day (Prime) and looked quite a bit like the ones I pulled out (only a lot cleaner!) Both had more pleats than the OEM versions, which means better filtration and are made in China to Nissan specs.
Now, I have to question some of the engineering decisions made by the designers over at Nissan/Renault.
Why would you mount the air filter box for the fricken engine BEHIND the engine? It was almost like they were saying, "Hey! Let's see how difficult we can make it for the owner to change the air filter! And, while we're at it. let's do the same for the cabin filter - and then not tell anyone where it is or that it even exists!"
And why put that massive plastic monstrosity leading air into the engine air filter over the fricken battery? It's not like the battery NEVER goes bad, right? Good for the life of the car, right? Never needs to be charged, right? Never needs to be checked and corrosion (if present) removed, right? Right!
And, finally, why make the whole thing out of brittle plastic? The latch that holds the two sections together broke when I was trying to reassemble it after replacing the air filter. Now it's held together by a self tapping metal screw. Well, you do what you have to to get it to work, but, really - you're not exactly cramped for space in the engine compartment, are you? There are several other ways to mount that box so it was out of the way and you had a clear shot at getting things done without your belt buckle scratching the fricken pain on the fender 'cause you had to lean so far in to unlatch the clips on the filter box!
