To change the cabin air filter one needs to remove the glove box first. This is reasonably simple and involves a couple of screws, the rubber glove box limit pads, and a 10mm nut. The air filter is located in the heater assembly directly behind the glove box. The filter is removed by releasing the plastic clip holding the filter and withdrawing the filter forwards. (The filter is installed like a vertical drawer.). The Hyundai web site (www.hmaservice.com) has a good description.
For a 2006, you simply slip the black ring off of the glove box clip on the right, and pull the left side of the glove box in slightly so the rubber glove box limit pad will clear it's channel. That allows the glove box to open forward and gives access to the heater assembly directly behind the glove box. The air filter holder is held in place by four plastic clips that you squeeze together in pairs to release the holder. Pull it out like a drawer. Remove the old filter by squeezing the top and bottom (or front and back, depending on how you hold it) of the filter together. This will bow the white plastic sides of the filter so that they clear the four small, black plastic protrusions from the sides of the holder that keep the filter in place. Reverse the process with the new filter and you are done. Takes about 10 minutes.

I did not think this car had a cabin filter.If it does just call the Dealer.
Well I'm thinking that most manufacturers keep the cabin air filter in the same place. I have a 1999 Hyundai Sonata GLS V6 and the cabin air filter in that car is back behind the glove box....if I am right about this your cars air filter should be in the same place...but if it's not there I would call the dealership and talk to them about it.
The cabin air filter is behind the glove box. The glove box will need to be dropped down or completely removed to gain access to the filter.
most vehicles dont have one check with the dealer
To reach the cabin air filter on a Hyundai Elantra the glovebox has to be removed. The filter is located behind the glovebox and can be easily replaced once the glove box is removed.
My 2009 Hyundai has 40K miles and recently started to smell like excrement. Drive the car, turn on the vents, open the windows or gag! Terrible. I changed the cabin air filter, no change.
The cabin air filter is located behind the glove compartment. Un hook the glove compartment on each side & you can pull the cabin air filter holder(bracket) out. It should show you this in your maintenance manual.

The 1995 Sonata cabin air filter is located behind the kick plate on the passenger side of the passenger compartment. You will need to remove the kick plate in order to access the cabin filter.
