disconnct the battery for anywhere from 30 min to 2 hrs will clear nissan computers.
the only other way is connecting nissian's computer up and hard clearing, if your hand manual refers to conzult then there is depends on the computer your car is useing.

Hi michael, I have also recently replaced the Air Mass Sensor in my 3.0 Patrol. It cost me $240 from Nissan, and no you don't need to replace any intake pipes.

The only thing you do need is some "tamper proof" allen keys, as any computer bits on all these new cars require these special little tools. The screws look similar to an allen key, but have an extra little nodule in the centre stoping mortal plebs like us messing around with things. I bought a set from Bunnings for $28.
