That's even easier. The air filter is located in a box on the right side of the engine bay, in front of the battery.Didn't know it was this easy. Dealer charged me $38 to change it. Darnn.
Does anyone know how to change the engine air filter?
Just wondering if you wanted to know how to change the filter or does it need changed. 013 seems a little early to change unless you have a lot of miles racked up on it already. I have gone a few years on my other vehicles before I even check the cabin filters. But than it does makes a differents where you live.Has anyone done this?
Is it actually located right behind the glove box? Is there a DIY on the forums that I didn't see?
Thanks, think I will change my filters myself for now on!That's even easier. The air filter is located in a box on the right side of the engine bay, in front of the battery.
The air box is connected to the engine fuel injection via the large, bent tube with the ridges. To change the engine air filter, get a replacement from a Hyundai dealer parts counter. Open the air box by unlatching the two catches found along the base of the box. You can't see these in the photo, but look down along the sides of the box and they'll be obvious enough. Pull the the box to the right once those two catches are released. There are a couple of tabs on the left side of the box, under the intake that slide out of their retaining slots, releasing the top of the air box and allowing it to be pulled up. You'll see the old air filter, with its rubber seal. Replace it with the new air filter. It only fits one way, with the rubber seal up. Maybe you will want to vacuum out the air box to remove debris and grit before putting the new filter in. Push the top of the air box down gently over the filter first to the right, then to the left, sliding the two tabs on the left side back into their slots. Re-fasten the hinged latches. It's a lot harder to describe than it is to do.
Same here. I don't live on a gravel road, but I would still check on it once a year. At the 12 month/15,000 mile scheduled service, the cabin air filter is supposed to be changed out, according to the owner's manual. However, about a month after I had taken my car in for its 12 month service, I discovered that the air filter had not been changed. It was pretty dirty looking to me, so I changed it myself. I got the feeling that they took my car in, parked it somewhere and made me wait for an hour, then handed it back to me without actually doing anything to it. I did tell them not to change the oil since I'd already done that recently, but that doesn't mean they can skip the other stuff.Living on a gravel road, I'd check the filter at least once a year.
