I still can't get to the cabin air filter even after studying your pics. Am I correct in assuming it is NOT inside the glove box but underneath?
Also, I see under the passenger dash the vents but I don't have a light there. I have a hole that looks like a light should fit but there isn't a cover or anything else. Also I'm not seeing the two clips you are referring to and unfortunately both youtube and the infiniti DIY manual haven't been any help this time.
Ok! After much searching and cussing I finally got it open. I guess they left the empty hole there for a reason. You have to put your fingers in there, wiggle them around until you find the clips and then pull the outer cover down. It's a tight fit to get the old filter out and the new one in because the outer cover doesn't provide much give.
But hey, I saved about 85 bucks after buying the filter from Amazon.
