Many of us have the cabin air filters. I replaced mine a couple of weeks ago, then decided to get a new one for my wife's Murano. While changing the filter in the Murano I noticed a sticker inside the glove box. It stated that the filters could be washed and reused. These filters look as if they would come apart if they got wet, but I decided to try. The instructions said to swish the filter around in soapy warm water, rinse and let dry. This worked! The filter gets flimsy while washing, but it returned to its original shape when dried (I set it in the sun to dry)
So if your filter is not damaged, or very dirty, you can wash and reuse it, saving you about $30.00.

I tried cleaning mine and was not too impressed. It was pretty gray when I started and was slightly lighter gray when I finished. The filter had been in there a year when I did it, and I figured I let it go too long before I attempted to clean it.

Amsoil also sells Wix filter, Trico wiper blade and Mother car care products.

Here is the PN for cabin air filter.
04 -- 24854
05 -- 24854
06 -- NA
07 -- None listed

Cabin Air Filtration Product
WIX No. 24854

The cabin air filter is behind the glove box and the glove box
assembly must be removed

1.
• Remove the two glove box assembly screws at the left and right corners under the
glove box.
2.
• Open the glove box and remove the four retaining screws at the upper left and right
corners (it is not necessary to remove the four striker screws in the middle around
the retaining latch).
3.
• Remove the glove box assembly from the dash.
4.
• You can now see the cabin air filter cover – remove the retaining screw and then remove
the cabin air filter cover.
5.
• Remove the two cabin air filters – slide the first one out, then reach in and slide the
other one to the opening and remove it.
6.
• Slide the first new filter into position then slide it to the right, then insert the second
filter – make sure the air flow arrows are pointing downward.
7.
• Reinstall the cover and the glove box assembly.

Over on another site one of the guys was building his own for his Titan out of cheap, washable, cut-to-fit, home a/c filter kits from Home Depot.

On one of these threads I read earlier today, somebody's condenser fan went bad and the dealer was going to charge them a 1000 bucks. Another poster said something about "power washing" the condenser as the design allows for it to become filthy. Is this possible and where is the condenser...as a matter of fact...what is a condenser? I would like to clean mine before it becomes a 1000.00 problem

The A/C condenser is the device that looks like the engine radiator. It is located in front of the engine radiator. If you raise the hood and look behind the grill you will see it. Its purpose is to cool the high pressure gas from the A/C compressor so the gas is condensed into a liquid. That liquid then passes through the expansion valve where it is expanded and causes it to become very cold. The cold liquid/gas then passes through the evaporator and extracts heat from the air passing through it, providing the cold air to cool the inside of the vehicle. The low pressure gas then goes back to the compressor and starts the cycle over again.
