The air filters for the A/C and heat need to be changed at least once a year, more often if you are in dusty/dirty conditions. Jet Tech, on our sister site ClubTitan, has an excellent post on this. Look here:

Does anyone have the info from this post by Jet Tech of the Titan site? It is not on the site anymore.

Also some one was selling cabin filters that they manufactured themselves. Who was that and did anyone buy one?

$89 for the cabin filter? Damn, the filters can be had for $20 and takes all of 10 minutes to take out the 6 or so screws replace the filter and put everything back together. I'm all for paying someone else to do something you don't have time for but when the dealers rape you for 10 minutes worth of work that is just wrong.

You guys don't need to take all the screws out to get to the cabin filters. Underneath the glovebox is two retainer pins. Flip it and pull out and the glovebox come out.

Do all of the MADA's have a cabin filter or is that just for LE's? I know you can add them according to the Titan website, just wasnt sure if all MADA models carried them.

Mine is an 06 SE 4X4 and it came with the cabin filters. I changed them not too long ago!

i've read here sometime ago that instead of buying a new filter all they did was carefully washed them off and let them air dry. anyone tried washing them off?

No but I did order a set of washable filters for $50 shipped. The factory ones are paper so it's hard to wash with water and it still be intact.

The $50 filter was directly from Nissan, same as their $50 for a set of $5 front mud flaps. At the time I ordered mine only the LE...maybe it was only the tech package were they only ones which it came standard.
