Default Kia Sorento 2005 55 plate cabin filter

Does anone know how to replace the cabin filter on my 2005 55 plate pre facelift model Kia Sorento?
Some people have said there isnt one on this model but i ave purchased the filter and it is in the post, they assure me it is for the 2003 - 2006 model.

Any pics welcome, i have already had the glove box out and can only see electrics, doesnt look like a filter goes anywhere.

Any help at all welcome, im new to this Forum and the Kia Sorento

I don't think it has one, my 03 didn't.

^^^Ditto -- there is a filter listed for 03-09 Sorentos but it appears to be a mistake. If you removed the glove box and could not see a filter cover your Sorento does not have a cabin filter -- the filter cover would be very noticable. I went through that too -- dropped the glove box on my 03 Sorento and found it doesn't have a cabin filter.

The cabin filter isn't mentioned anywhere in the 03 or the 05 Sorento owners manual, not even on the maintenance schedule list.

I bought one also for my 03. I haven't replaced it as of yet because I needed a small torx socket my set was missing. I dropped the glove box door and was hoping it was in plain view but it wasn't. If I remember correctly there were several torx screws to remove to access it according to the instructions and diagram that came with the filter.

Any chance you could scan the instructions and post on here?

I took my 03' glove box off and could not find any type door for a cabin filter. I'm hoping I'm wrong and your instructions give a clue how to do it.

I can assure you that no UK spec pre-facelift had a cabin filter. IF you had one your vehicle would be an import/non-uk spec.

KIAOwnerX3,
