I ordered a new ATP Premium Cabin Filter from RockAuto.com. The filter has a Charcoal media to help filter out smells and fine dust particles. The downfall is that it needs to be changed every 12,000 miles. The filter costs 13.00 but right now you can get a rebate of $5.00. Last time I needed one they wanted $25.00+ for a standard paper media and Ford wanted $30.00.

?? I never read the manual, but I didn't know if there was one for sure or not. Where is it replaced on the 2007 - behind the glove box or in the engine compartment??

I Think 07 is same as 08+, its in the engine compartment, infront of the passanger seat.

But I also think the shape changed with the 07's to the odd triangle that's harder to find, more expensive. I didn't find one on rockauto for ATP, a few others are listed, cheap paper for $20ish, and a fram charcoal something or other for like $60-80 :shock:

I've decided the little bit I drive I can live with outside air.

You could also try doing one from the filters they sell at Home Depot. I made one for my Celica and it worked better than those they sell at the auto part stores.

do cabin filters make a noticeable difference? I work for a Nissan dealership parts dept and our tech only sell cabin filters if there is nothing else the car needs or to a person they think will buy whatever they are told.

YEAH! it does. it keep all the dust and dirt particles from going in your truck. Before I had put the filter in, my dash was dirty the next day after cleaning it. Now I don't have the problem. When I opened up the place where the filter goes, there was alot of leaf particles in it. That was blowing in the truck, I cleaned it out and put the filter on and no more problems. So it does a difference with it on.

OK for the 2008 and up, is the filter located in the cowl area? I looked in the engine compartment and there was nothing.

It should be under hood right in front of the passenger side. Right below the windshield. If you pull out the plastic panel you should see a big hole. That's where the filter would go. Just make sure to clean it out before you put the filter in. It might have some dust or leaf particles.
