Here's a place to try....
...or from a friend at edmund (we're in this together BTW)
[b]"I had the same idea before I saw your post.
Last week they wanted $55 to replace the cabin filter. I said no. After reading in the manual how to access the filter (pg:6-22)... I removed it and thoroughly vacuumed between criss; and in less than 30mn (removing and cleaning it)... except for the discoloration on the intake side...it looks as good as new.
(the replacement the Dealer carries is $22+Tx and doesn't appear to be as sturdy as the original filter which came with the car!... The 3M filters look pretty strong!)
Then while I was at Lowes it occurred to me to look at the A/C filters they carry... I found one (3M- Filtrete) size 20x30x1 which will make 6 Sonata filters.
The size for the 2006 Sonata is: 9" 7/8 x 8" 5/8 : Cost $3.30 per filter if none is wasted.
When I got home I googled the forum to see if there are other ideas... and I found your post #297.
Reading you post will save me about $4 because Lowes sells them for $20. I will check out HD to see if they are still $16.
I went to HD this afternoon, and found an even better set up/deal: They have an A/C line of air filters called TrueBlue where I found size10"x24"x1" which makes 2 Filters... The size 10" fits perfectly in the Sonata air filter holder... all one has to do is to cut to size the other side to make a perfect fit! Just one cut and that's it... and the cost is even sweeter:$1.50 with tax which comes to $0.75 per filter! "
and I quote. I did this on the last change. As long as I don't see leaves blowing thru my vents I'm OK.
MODS I had to try and fix edmunch....posted as Edmunch twice. WTH? and I quote myself...."we're in this together".
[b]YOU did it again. Time to grow up folks. CarSpace is how I FOUND your arses.
FYI: You can delete my posts but don't you ever change my words again. Or I will take the MOTD route.
