Climate Controled Seat Filter Replacement

Does anyone know what part to get and/or how to access the filters under the seats for the cooling blower? I've had diminished air flow and am hoping it's just dirty filters. Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks!

News to me too. Never heard of that. Is this true or is OP making a mistake?

OK, I did some more research on this.


seems there IS such a filter!

it requires removing the "seatback board". the filter is attached directly to the climate controlled seat blower motor.

took a screenshot (pardon the quality)of the clips/pawls that need to be accessed to remove the seatback.

bear in mind this is for a 2012 qx. the 2017/18 armada should be the same.

EDIT: theres TWO filters per seat: one for the seatback (for your back) and one for the sleat cushion.

both are circular, according to the service manual exploded view.

so it seems , based on petites link, there's different designs.

since the armada and qx are based on the patrol and are made on the same line in japan, it makes compelling speculation that the filters are circular and not square.

since the op has an armada, op should contact nissan and ask for the part number for the seat cushion blower motor filter, and we can cross reference from there.

This is really news to me.

Found this on how to replace it on a Infiniti sedan. I am guessing it should be the same on our cars. Pics are always a great way to share things.

Where did you get the service manual? The links are no more available on nicoforum. Care to share?

I have cleaned both filters when installed a seat massage.

They are not very dirty after 40 k miles, but shall be washed.

Xy,

were the panels on the back of the seats difficult to remove? what tool(s) did you use and would recommend.

what year is your car and how long have you had it if purchased used?

something else to think about is if the perforations in the seats are clogged. this can cause more issues with the seats ventilating than the filter.

1. There are 2 bolts on the bottom of the seat back and some pawls (see attached factory manual)
2. 2012 MY (it's a Patrol Y62, which was released in Europa 8 years before the the US Armada). But it is a quite changed one - Stage 3+ with 693 hp at the moment.
