This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016) Nissan Juke in cleaning or changing the A/C cabin air filter element in the HVAC blower motor housing.

Owners of other Nissan vehicles such as the Versa, Sentra, Altima, Maxima, Cube, Leaf, Pathfinder, 370Z, Rogue, Xterra, Murano, Armada, Quest, Frontier and Titan may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

Here are a few compatible replacement aftermarket cabin air filters with their part numbers : TYC 800138P, Fram CF11177, Denso 453-6031, Wix # 24012, ATP RA-136, OEM CAF268P, Beck Arnley 042-2187, Hastings AFC1534 and Pentius PHBT9052.

The only tool needed to access the cabin air filter is a standard Phillips head screwdriver.

The first two steps are to open the glove box and them empty out the contents.

(I'm not sure if the next step is necessary, but it has become a habit of mine when replacing cabin air filters.)

I popped off the plastic damper arm on the right side of the glove box. Since you will be removing the entire glove box assembly from the dashboard, that step can probably be skipped.

On most cars, the procedure is to pop off the plastic damper arm, push in the two side walls and lower the glove box.

To access the cabin air filter on the Juke and other Nissan models, the glove box screws will have to be removed.

Remove the two screws near the back of the glove box by turning them counterclockwise with the Phillips head screwdriver.

With the glove box out of the way, you'll be able to see the rectangular white plastic filter access panel on the left side of the passenger foot well.

Gently pull down the retaining clip at the bottom edge of the filter access cover and swing it open.

If the old filter is relatively clean, just tap out the large debris and remove any fine dust with a vacuum.

If the old filter is dark grey or black and clogged with dirt, dust, insects, leaves, twigs, hair and pollen, it should be replaced with a new element.

I recommend buying the TYC 800138P cabin air filter since it has excellent reviews on Amazon.
