no such animal... sorry

......well, THERE IS cabin filter for the new(2006.5 and up Optima) So they might be older ones with it too. It is a regtangular shaped box located behind the glove box. You gently remove the stoppers on both sides of the box and allow it to hang freely on its hinges . Then you will see the filter assembly. The filter elememt rests sideways within a frame that you slide out by gently pressing on the clips at either end. You install by reversing the procedure. That's it, enjoy your fresh air......

The dealer wants $48 for one here in South Florida , I've seen them for about $40. with the shipping on the net .


All Kia Optima's can be fitted with the cabin air filter. The blower housing is used in other Kia and Hyundai models as well. The manufacturer uses the filter as a selling point for their premium offerings. On the Optima they simply fail to install a filter in the housing. The removable cover is still there. If you search hard enough in eBay motors you will find them. I paid $12. + $8. shipping. I recommend using the above instructions to get to the blower housing, then vacuum out the narrow area the filter slides into. Mine had accumulated leaves and tree bark from parking outdoors. The filter is effective at stopping debris from flying out of the vents.

I have an '07 Sorento. I have to access it through the glove box. I have an '06 Sorento 3.5 L engine. It does not have a cabin filter per technician at Kia dealership. If you have a 3.8L engine you have a cabin filter...

It should be behind the glove box. You open it and then push in on the sides till it can be opened further ( it has rubber stoppers on the sides). Your filter is back there just push down on the clips on both ends and pull out ( careful I snapped one of mine off). Pull out the old filter and put on the new that's it.

For the 2001 kia optima I have found the oil filter between the front passenger side tire and the engine. You can see it if you turn the wheels all the way to the left, although it helps if the filter cover is a bright color. To change it I had to remove the tire.
