Maintainance filter warning

Post by Jmurr » Thu Nov 19, 2020 7:43 pm

New to this
But here goes
Just had maintainance filter come up on screen
In car
Just wondering what filter it might be
As only had car 3 months and done about two thousand miles
Car was serviced for me when I bought it from nissan dealer so I would have thought all filters would have been changed then
Car is a 2014 1.5 diesel
Any ideas please

could be the fuel filter, i doubt they would have replaced that on the service, i`d have a quick look at the air filter too just to make sure it had been replaced too. the dealers use the JUST BEEN SERVICED as a selling point, as the average person won`t bother to check if things have been replaced or not :x

Thanks for the advice
Andy
Car goes in today gotta leave it with them
But will be asking the question if they have had to change a filter why?
After only 3 month and them saying it was serviced by themselves when I bought it
Thanks again

Welcome to this forum

Please explain what you mean by "maintenance filter"

I don't think there's a warning at all for the air filter.

If it was the oil filter it would say "Oil and Filter"

Or it may be you need to drain water from the fuel filter (not necessarily replace it) - but the manual suggests that's actually a light not a written message.
