2014 Juke Engine Air Box
Metal Latch - Left Side
Fastener Released
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and the revised 2015 & 2016) Nissan Juke in cleaning or changing the engine air filter element for the MR16DDT 1.6 liter inline four cylinder turbo-charged motor.

Owners of other Nissan vehicles such as the Versa, Sentra, Altima, Maxima, Cube, Leaf, Pathfinder, 370Z, Rogue, Xterra, Murano, Armada, Quest, Frontier and Titan may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A few compatible replacement engine air filters with their part numbers are as follows: Fram CA6900, K&N 33-2409, Purolator A24675, Mann MA 1128, aFe 31-10055, Ecogard XA4675, Beck Arnley 042-1492, Champ Labs AF7823, Mahle LX 2565, Hastings AF972 and Wix 46044.

No tools are needed to replace the filter.

A wet/dry shop vacuum may be useful for cleaning the existing element in order to re-use it or to clean out the the air box.

Release Latch On Right
Pull Apart Air Box
Remove Old Air Filter
The engine air box is located at the right rear area of the engine bay, near the driver's seat and behind the 12V automotive battery.

The two halves of the air box are held together by two metal latches on the top edge.

Flip the two metal latches away from the air box to release them.

Gently pull apart the two halves of the air box to expose the old filter.

Slide the old filter straight out of the air box.

Old Air Filter Removed
Inspect Both Sides
Clean With Vacuum
Inspect both sides of the old air filter.

If the old filter is relatively clean, just tap out the large debris and remove any fine dust with a vacuum.

If the old filter is dark grey or black and clogged with dirt, dust, hair, leaves, twigs, insects, pollen and other debris, it should be replaced with a brand new element.

I recommend buying the Fram CA6900 filter since it has great reviews on Amazon.


Install New Air Filter
Close Air Box
Flip Up Latch
Slide the new engine air filter in to the box with the pleats facing towards the front of the vehicle.

Fully seat the filter in the box and then push together the two halves of the air box.

Flip the metal latch on the left side over the other half of the air box and secure it in place.

Tabs On Bottom In Slots
Secure 2nd Metal Latch
Engine Air Filter Replaced
If the air box won't fit back together properly, check that the plastic tabs on the bottom edge are seated in their corresponding slots.

Snap the 2nd metal latch over the other half of the air box.
