Climate control air filter

The climate control air filter installed inside the motor room compartment filters the dust or other pollutants that come into the vehicle from the outside through the heating and air conditioning system.

  • A: Outside air

  • B: Recirculated air

  • C: Climate control air filter

  • D: Blower

  • E: Evaporator core

  • F: Heater core

If dust or other pollutants accumulate in the filter over a period of time, the air flow from the air vents may decrease, resulting in moisture accumulation on the inside of the windshield even when the outside (fresh) air position is selected. If this happens, have the climate control air filter replaced by an authorized Kia dealer.

  • Replace the filter every 15,000 miles (20,000 km) or once a year. If the vehicle is being driven in severe conditions, such as dusty or rough roads, more frequent air conditioner filter inspections and changes are required.

  • When the air flow rate suddenly decreases, the system should be checked at an authorized Kia dealer.
