The model IN utilizes Permatron’s exclusive Accumulator Chamber construction featuring multiple layers of woven industrial polypropylene fabric with a high waffle construction. The model IN is compatible with systems where high velocity air is pushed through limited filter surface areas. The model IN may be water rinsed or vacuumed for dirt removal. No system modifications or electrical hook-ups are needed. An electrostatic filter works by a static electric charge (positive or negative), or having a charge, which remains local. This property does not diminish or disappear over time, and is not an additive that could wash out from filtration media, nor is it created by the addition of high voltage electricity. Airborne particles are attracted to the media until they are rinsed away. Permatron filters are built with the fine3st quality materials and construction design, this air filter is made to last the life of you HVAC system. There are no replacement parts and nothing to dispose of and environmentally friendly. This is a one-time cost, and gives you the least cost over the product’s useful life.



Specs:

Average Arrestance Efficiency 78%

Dust holding capacity: 130 grams

Initial resistance to air flow: 0.11 inches w.g.

Stainless steel frame

Black filter media for easy visual inspection.



The following instructions are for a 2004 Nissan Titan SE King Cab. Please not that theses instructions are a general guideline and your model may vary.







Instructions and new filters.





Start by removing all items from your glovebox. It will just make it a little easier. With the glovebox closed remove the two hinge pins from below as show in the following pictures.



Empty glove box.







Hinge pin.







Hinge pin removed.





Once the pins have been removed open the glovebox carefully. Now remove the bracket shown in the picture below by sliding the bracket up to allow it to come loose of the glove box. Once you have the bracket off you can completely remove the glovebox.



Tensioner bracket.





Back side of tensionor bracket.





Glove box removed





Now that you have removed the glovebox you will see the door for the filters. Remove the bolt with an 8mm nut driver (or equal tool). Be careful not to drop the bolt.



Remove 8mm bolt. (don’t drop)







Removing bolt.





Remove the door and remove old filters (if your truck came with them) then install the new filters. Insert one and slide it to the right. Then insert the second one. Put the filter cover back on being careful to make sure the cover is properly hooked on the tabs at the top.



Old filters being removed.







Old filter vs. new.







First new filter in.





Both new filters in.







Both new filters in place.





Now that the new filters are in and the cover is back on you can reinstall the glovebox. First hook the tensioner bracket back onto the glovebox. After you hook the tensioner bracket back on slide the glovebox back in and close it. Once the glovebox is closed you can reinstall the hinge pins.



Enjoy your new filters!



Dirty old filter ( 6 months worth of dirt etc..)





Filter Maintenance:

Filter maintenance will greatly be determined by your specific conditions. It is recommended checking them after 3-6 months to inspect their condition. Then you can determine yourself how often they should be cleaned. If they are dirty you just rinse them with water or vacuum them and allow to dry before you re-install them. That’s it!

Krh2, There is a much easier way to remove the glove box, that doesn't involve removing the hinge pins or the tensioner bracket. You simply remove 6 screws and whole glove box comes out.

If you like I can take pictures showing how I do it. It takes about 2-3 minutes to remove the glove box if you are slow.

I can't see how that is faster though? The way he is doing it doesn't even require a screwdriver. The two pins snap out and the tension cable snaps right of as well. 30 seconds tops. And ya don't really have to empty the glove box either. It just makes it easier the first time you do it. After that, it's cake. <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt004' />



Edit: I just looked in the 04 owners manual and the service manual. In both they say to remove the 6 screws like Skyhammer said. I just can't see how that can be faster. Especially when they made the hinge pins so easily removable???

Well, I'm with QWIK on this one. It's really easy to do it the way he and krh2 described. In fact, that's the method I used when installing my Permatron filters.

I did it that way last time. This way is easier.

I guess it is just a matter of which way you like to do it. For me, not having to mess with the tensioner and the hinges, along with the possibility of breaking something makes it easier for me.

It also gives you access to the dash bolts, which if loose, cause a terrible squeak.

This is a picture of the dash bolts. If you get a chance, I would try to tighten these up even if you don't have a squeak yet. I thought the squeak was coming form my front suspension or somewhere else outside the truck.

Mine are in too. Those things were dirty... I have no more musty smell when the AC starts up, woo-hoo!



It's amazing what these filters pick up along the way.

Me too. Later on last night I took my finger and scraped some crap outta my old filters....ICK. Q, does it matter which way you put them in for air flow? I know on my house's hvac you have to put the filter in because it is directional. I didnt notice any arrows on your filters.???





ICK..... STEVES YOU CRACK ME UP.

I got mine the same day KRH2 did this writeup - he beat me to the punch.



Replaced them early this morning via the "Pull Pin" methond. In my opinion, this was easier than removing the screws as I did last time.



Having read HK's post about breaking a hingepin this morning, I was extra careful.



Thanks again Qwik!

Nope, These filters are nondirectional. <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/002.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt017' />



I'm glad everyone is happy with them. <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt010' />
