    my local dealer didn't have anything when I went in - nor a part number to give me, so I had ordered what I thought was the one for our K13's - the CF10709 (I believe that was posted here at some point) - thing was far too ridgid to be bent through the half sized hole so I just ripped off the two end plates allowing it to accordion down, and it sprung back up to size on the other side :P $12US from amazon I believe.

    (Personally, I'd clean the dust on those parts before putting them back...)

    Just got my Micra a few days ago and didn't check yet whether I have a cabin filter or not. Planning to do it this weekend.

    So if you put in a cabin filter, does it even do anything? Is there crap from the air that will get trapped in it?

    No need to remove the glove box like in this video.

    Dirty filter vs. Clean filter...
    I change my cabin filters twice a year (my ventilation works as long as I'm in the car)

    Can you post a video on how to change the filter without removing the glove box? It sure is a nuisance...
