2016 Infiniti Q50 Red Sport RWD
Hey everyone, so I bought my Q50 about a couple months ago when it was 23K miles and I checked the air filters last week. They were extremely dirty and had oil and hunk built up(picture below). Forgot to take pictures of the process but replacing them was super easy, and I went with the AFE dry air filters which fit perfect. My intake box itself was pretty dirty so I took it apart, but if yours isn’t you don’t need to. If I didn’t have to clean the intake box I would have not taken off the front air tunnel in the engine bay (no clue what it’s actually called) and would just loosen the two clips, slide the old filter out, and pop the new ones in. Sorry I didn’t take pictures of the whole process, but here’s the OEM filters which are hella dirty IMO for only 25K miles. So I guess don’t listen to the suggested 45K maintenance schedule, check yourself once in a while.
