Default Changing the Air Cabin Filter?

Does anyone know or can provide a step by step guide to changing the Air Cabin Filter? I think its located behind the glove box? My dealer wants to charge me $55.00 bucks to change it, I'm like...I dont think so! Will go to Napa and get the filter for like $5.00 and rather do it myself.

Thanks all!

It's very easy. First, open the glovebox and remove everything inside. On the right side there is a cable with a plastic tab on the end. Pull the plastic tab out a little, turn it sideways and slide it through the hole in the side of the glovebox. The cable is attached to a dampener spring so the box doesn't slam open. Once the cable is removed push in the sides of the box slightly and pull the box out. It will still be attached at the bottom hinge but will open all the way. Now you should be able to see the door to the filter. Release the tabs and remove the door. Then slide the filter out. Be sure to mote the arrow on the filter so you put the new filter in correctly. Reverse the steps and you are done.

BTW, I found out there are (at least) 2 different OEM cabin air filters for the Tucson. I have a 2006 and when I ordered a new filter from the dealer the one they gave me was the wrong size. The part number was 97133-2E200. The system was modified midway through the 2006 year so that number is only good for 2005 through early-2006. Late 2006-up uses part number 97133-2E250. List price was $16.95

http://www.hyundaipartsonline.com/ sells both filters for $13.65 (plus shipping).

Best thing to take and do is take your old filter with you to make sure you get right one...

The last handful of services I had with Tucson,, parts has given me the wrong filter,,, so I gots to go back with my dirty demo filter and get other filter and make sur it is right..

Sometimes you can make out the Hyundai number on old filter, provided it is a Genuine Hyundai part..
