Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we show you how to service the air filter on this 2005 Nissan Maxima. It's pretty much the same as any '04 to '08 Maxima. The only tool you'll need is a flat blade screwdriver.

The air box is right here on the driver's side. Using a flat blade screwdriver, loosen up this clamp here. Then there are two clamps you just push with your finger. Ok, take those off and then you can lift your air box up this way a little bit. Pull that off a little. Then pull the top of your air box up, then off, and then you can put it on its back like that. Pull the air filter, and this one is really well used and ugly.

Ok, new air filter from 1A Auto. You can go with paper style or with the K&N style. The benefit of the K&N is it's a lifetime warranty and it provides a little better flow for your engine. Put the filter down there. There's three tabs on this side of your filter box. They go into loops on the lower part of the box. You kind of have to tilt it up a little bit. Push in, push it down, and bring it close up and on. There's a little indent in the fender here so you can get your finger down in it. Make sure this inlet hose is on and tighten your clamp back up.
