Hey guys!


I haven't posted here in a long time due to school/work. My altima has been running great since it was last in the shop around 5k miles. I now have almost 30k on it and it's been very smooth since then.

I was wondering if anyone knew the part number of the cover that goes over the cabin air filter in the passenger footwell? That cover has kept coming off since I bought the car and I think I lost mine now. I'm getting ready to put a new air filter in and would like to buy a new cover to go with it and this time maybe tape it on or something so it doesn't fall off. Any ideas where I can get that cover (other than the dealership)?

Most likely a dealer only item , it should not be that expensive.

FYI , the reason the cover won't stay put is because the in cabin filter is not positioned correctly in the HVAC unit . Improper position won't allow to door to clip in place correctly.

At times I have fought with getting the door on, I make sure the filter is in all the way and the door clips on and stays in position.

Removal of the glove box is not needed to do this job.

You don't remove the glove box to change out the filter? I need to install one. The base model supposedly doesn't come with the filter

That is true, i have a 2015 base model and it didnt come with a filter. And the cover for the cabin air filter could be a pita to put back on sometimes.

$32.14 at my local dealership. I'll pass. I can live without the cover

Cheaper if you go to the junk yard, or maybe you can find some one on the craigslist thats parting out an altima. Just a thought.

As a student in this economy, I don't have $33 to spare.

Also, I don't happen to have the luxury of having the latest iPhone.


Thanks for your help to all those who contributed.
