How To Replace Air Filter On 2000 Maxima SE

Hello everyone, I am thinking about getting a K & N Air Filter for my 2000 Maxima SE. These are great, as they have to be replaced only every 50,000 miles and improve mpg and hp slightly. So.. where is the stock air filter? How do I remove it? Pictures would be very helpful

Thanks

so you have a modded mustang but you can't install an air filter?

Its on the driver's side front of the engine bay, its the big black box, there are two tab that pop up and you slide the it forward. From there pull the filter out and put a new one in.

If you gonna put body kits on your maxima, you may want to consider an air intake to atleast have some performance.

You're better off just taking it to the dealer. The air filter is a difficult job, and it might be too complicated for a first-timer. It costs a bit more, but your dad can pay for it.

Here's what your looking for, mind you mine is no longer inside the engine bay but you see all the parts when you open the hood you'll be able to find it quit quickly.

This a short ram intake with a BPI velocity stack and large cone filter that was installed to replace my stock air box system.

Trust me.... Rear Window Louvers will not make it look badass And I know how to replace a HU with a new one. And don't tell me to learn about my car, I know so much about my car.

You can install a Headunit but not an intake air filter

you "know so much about your car" but you can't flip up two clips, slide out the old filter, slide in a new filter and reattach the clips?

filling up with gas is more difficult, takes more time and has more steps than replacing your air filter

I got this bright blue JDM one from ebay. it says it adds 10 horsepower. i can definitely feel the difference!

And why would he be driving a 2000 maxima if he "had" that Mustang? I bet some digging reveals its not his, he isnt allowed to drive it and he is a prototypical eDork sitting on mommy and daddys computer.
