Cabin Air Filter Help Nothing Can Fit R34

Recommended Posts

Hi there i pulled apart my cabin air filter to replace i cant seem to find one small enough one to fit. The old one that was in there already was one that the old owner has cut but wasn't a proper filter and has half fallen apart so cleaning it will be pointless

The part number AY684-NS002 cabin filter that mention in all the thread is way to thick to fit in mine the measurement of the old filter was 245mm x 95mm x 10mm thick I cant find anything that is thin enough to fit (10mm /1cm thick)

The video i posted below is similar to what I'm encountering that a person posted and for the life of me cant find anything suitable to fit

Skip to the 1 min 30 sec mark to see the filter tray assembly and you will see the issue

Sigh.

5s of searching. It's Pitwork, which is genuine Nissan.

Does that element actually have to be there? Is it part of a cold climate options pack or something? Piss it off and throw the fat filter in?

So these are the element things im not sure what they are

So there are also two different parts on that Kudos page

AY684-NS002 'Pollen Only'

AY685-NS002 'Pollen, odour and allergen'

Interestingly enough - the diagrams for those are a little bit different:

AY684-NS002:

AY685-NS002:

https://static.amayama.com/schemeparts/1568682097546_big.jpg

But I think that's just a red-herring - as these filters are both the same size/thickness and fit the same.

Looking at your filters / those in the video - they're very very different.  From previous threads on this:

Which is far more consistent with:

Another interesting note - in the video, we see cabling or something coming out of the filter:

Which isn't consistent with other threads on this topic:

https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-v5OHYjMx3SE/WFEMJjszwlI/AAAAAAAAEcU/lA6gVFPF-tAJzrs5zTWNUVFAUEMLtjUJwCLcB/s640/skyline.meshur.com-R34-112.jpg

So - something is a bit different/weird here.   It may be you'll need a different housing to fit those style of filters.

I poked through diagrams and stuff and couldn't see any versions of filters like that - but maybe someone else has an idea or has seen this before.  The 'cold climate options pack' perhaps that another poster mentioned?

Well, searching that part number online came up listed as 'Permanently out of stock'.

Googling for '503756-0120' definitely finds lots of images of these filters!

It also lead to this thread on gtr.co.uk (https://www.gtr.co.uk/threads/r34-pollen-filter.58381/#post-515069 ) :

Got the 2 white filters delivered today from Nissan as above, and guess what?
When I took off the panel as Ian describes above, the 2 filters inside are NOT white paper concertina type. They have electrical connections to them with what looks like an oval " electrical coil" in the filter housing and a black mesh on the other side. The housing for the 2 filters is exactly as ian has said on his site.

There is NO white paper type filter to be seen anywhere.

This filter looks like an anti static type which works by the use of the 12v system. These look mega expensive. So I have vacuumed them and put them back.

Now I have 2 brand new paper concertina type filters for sale, since my R34 GTR has this electrical type filter. I wonder if the white paper filter is for the GTT only?

The part number on these electrical type filters is 503756-0120 then underneath 96602.

As posted by R33 vspec

"I asked this a while ago, and got no reply. I had to do a bit of guess work myself!!!

Have you got the pollen filters from Nissan? I have the part# if you need it"


Did yours have these electrical type filters or the white paper ones as Ian describes on his site? If you have an R34 GTR, the why is your filter possibly diferent? Is this a UK spec mod for the R34 GTR?

I have taken some pics if anyone needs then to show these electrical filters. They look to be the same size as the paper ones.

The thread continues on talking about these 'electrical type' filters that use anti-static - and how impossible to get / expensive they are (and that was 2006). So I guess that answers what you have, at least.

This image shows apparently an extra bit in the AC display apparently relating to it:

https://s.auto.drom.ru/1/comments/95/94416.jpg

And there is some interesting translated Russian about possibly a Laurel and the operation of this particular style of filter - and that they're impossible to get / find.

Anyway, it sounds like if you're not happy with the filters you have now - it would be easiest to source the housing for the regular filters, and use those instead?

I went to change mine today and discovered i have these electrostatic ones too. When they're plugged in, i get that image on the climate control.  not sure if it means "filter is functional", or "clean filter".  I'm just going to give the filter part a wash and the static coil an air blow i think. EDIT: on second thoughts, the honeycomb filter is fibrous and looks like it wont stand up to a wash.  Interesting, the japanese writing on the side of the coils says "warning: do not disassemble, risk of electric shock". So i presume the control module for them bumps the 12V up to something much higher to create the ionisation effect!

Dude I hate when people create topics like this when you can just search ‘r34 cabin filter’ on google and get results. Cabin air filter.com.au has some for the r34 skyline. I bought it and installed it and it’s perfect

Bit of a thread resurrection - but I'd guess these are the integrated "microguard puretron filters" as seen here: https://nissan.epc-data.com/skyline/er34/3952-rb25det/misc/B79

    • it will be a switch to turn your Speed sensor wire on or off. so you can use the TV,DVD,USB videos and other things when driving.
    • Hi, I am new to the forum and have just bought a 2008 skyline 370GT Coupe. I have had a cruise control fitted that is like factory, installed by Autostrada Brisbane.  Next I wanted everything in English, including maps, so I found that there was a guy in Estonia doing this conversion for about $1400. I went ahead and here is my story, hoping that it saves interested people a lot of time and hassle. Cheers John  I recently purchased a new (refurbished) head unit that is fully English (Australian), with maps and all, from a an Ebay site in Estonia. I also got a new English keypad with it. A guy by the name of Simon was my ebay purchase contact. My car is a 2008 370GT Skyline. The unit cost me nearly $1400 but I think it was worth it. If you can't find the exact unit on ebay then just find one like it from Russia and contact the seller and tell him what you want. He will most likely be able to meet your need. The unit only took less than 3 wks to get to me. Then the fun started. It did not come with any instructions, so I searched how to replace a head unit on a Skyline but nothing came up, so I looked for "How to remove the head unit from a 2008 Infinity G37" and got what I needed. Here are the steps for those who want to know: 1. There is some metal trim on the top of the leather gear stick boot. Pull it down from the base of the gear shift and remove the clip that holds the gear knob on, don't lose it! And remove the gear knob. 2. Use a right angled needle pick at the rear corner of the trim around the gearstick. It can be difficult to avoid marking the trim of you use a screw driver. This piece of trim looks like brushed aluminium. Put the pick in the small corner gap where it meets the black plastic trim, and pry the corner up, so you can dislodge it and then pull that section up. Put the gearstick into drive by putting your finger under the trim piece, that you are wanting to remove, and push the white plastic slide down that stops you moving the gear leaver back to "drive". If you don't know where that trigger is then you can still get the trim off without the gear stick in drive but once you know where it is then it makes life easier. Unplug the 2 plugs and remove that piece of trim. 3. Unscrew the 2 screws securing the bottom of the clock carrying piece of trim and pull it out from the bottom and pull downways to remove it. Unplug those connections and take that piece of trim off. 4. Unscrew the 2 screws securing the vented piece of trim that surrounds the screen and lift that whole piece of trim out. 5. Unscrew the 2 silver screws that secure the screen to the mounting bracket, pull that screen piece out and unplug it and remove the screen altogether. 6. Locate the white slide that you have to push down to select drive position with the gear stick. It is just to the right and ahead of the gearstick, so that you can get the head unit out without destroying the trim. Unscrew the 2 silver screws that secure the lower part of the head unit and pull the head unit straight back and out. In doing so you are in danger of damaging the black soft trim, be extra careful. Now you can begin to unplug the back of the head unit. You now need to completely remove head unit. Put your driver's seat well forward to help you look down over the back of the head unit and with a screw driver depress the tangs on the plugs and pull them out. It can be challenging with some plugs to see just how to do that. Keep the head unit straight, or you will damage the black trim for sure. You could cover the edge of the soft black trim with a few layers of quality masking tape to help keep it safe, otherwise you are going to kick yourself for negligence. I damaged mine, regardless of how careful I tried to be. I will use black Sikaflex to repair it. I have used that before to repair a damaged steering wheel on my WRX. It is terribly messy stuff but if you wear a pair of washing up gloves so you can work with it and get the desired finish. Do not use surgical cloves that you can't detach from Sikaflex once you get it on them. Keep Sikaflex in the freezer or it will harden in the tube before long. I seal it best I can with a plastic membrane under the nozzle and put it in a plastic bag in the bottom of the freezer and have kept a tube for 2 years, otherwise it might only last a couple of weeks. It is expensive and you usually only need a little at a time. It is most useful for many things as it dries to a very strong rubber that is like engine mounts. I have actually successfully used it to refabricate an exhaust mount on one of my cars. 7. Once you have removed the head unit, replace the keypad with the English labelled unit. It is secured to the vent piece of trim that surrounds the screen. 8. Remove the mounting frame from the old unit with its piggy back connections and fit it to the new head unit. 9. Now begins the challenge, so you can get it right first time J. I conquered after 6 attempts. I had to figure out just how to match the plugs up with the new, very differently oriented, reprogrammed for Australia, head unit, that I was supplied with from Estonia. The confusing thing is that there are 2 sets of plugs that are the same on the factory loom and so you can hook the wrong ones up to the wrong places and if you do so all sorts of funny things will start to happen to your car's lights and fans and starting circuit etc. First up, identify the top 2 main white plugs that come out near the top of the old loom. They have yellow bands around the plastic sheathing of those plugs. These go to the top of the head unit's piggy back, nowhere else! You can plug them in last if you want. There are 2 identical white plugs lower down that go into the top 2 positions on the head unit proper but there are 2 other smaller white plugs that plug into the head unit below them. Plug them in first and then plug the ones that go above after that. There are also some plugs that go to the bottom line of sockets on the new unit. You will still have about 3 plugs from the old loom that go nowhere, once you change the head unit. Push them out of the way so that they don't stop you pushing the head unit fully home after you have plugged it all back together. Then there are 2 plugs that need to change sides: A blue plug that must change sides and plug into a tail that comes with the Estonian set up. This tail plugs in at the top of the head unit near the driver (right hand side). This is the one that gives you your info on the screen, otherwise you will just have a blank screen come up. I missed this one every time and so only had a blank screen. There is a brownish plug that also changes sides, now going to the left of the new unit. There are 2 smaller plugs that go to the lower right (driver's side) of the head unit. There is also a plug that has a female USB on the end that has to be located somewhere on the dash, or in the clove box or wherever you choose, that plugs in at the top left passenger's side of the head unit. 10. This should about do it for you. I don't think I have left anything out except to say that you need to arrange the wires with the new harness as best you can to allow you to be able to push the head unit back enough to get it remounted securely. It can't sit out into the car at all, or you won't get the clock trim back on. 11. Secure the head unit at the bottom first with the 2 silver screws and then refit the screen over it at the top and secure both the head unit and the screen together with the other 2 silver screws. 12. Refit the vent trim and secure it with the 2 black screws. 13. Refit the clock trim and plug in the broad ribbon plug and the 2 other plugs, Now secure the clock trim with it's 2 black screws. 14. Refit the final gear stick trim. Refit the gear knob and its clip and clip up the leather boot. Your done. I hope it all works for you. Cheers, you now pretty well have an Infinity G37.
