Default Where's the filter?

2013 Rio5 EX. USA Spec.

Do I have a " climate control air filter " ( for evaporator and blower unit)?

Cant find it in the literature before I go ripping out the dash.

Thanks!

I believe it's behind the glove box.

Unless you're a smoker or driving in extremely dusty areas you shouldn't need to change the filter yet.
