Have you replaced your cabin filter recently? I did it today.
It is easily forgotten since it is out of sight, but is was certainly
filthy after two years. Took about 15 minutes the first time, but will
take half that in the future now that I know how. No tools needed.
You can have the dealer do it, but they charge a lot of money for a
simple task. It even came with step by step instructions. At the local
auto part store it was $8.09 for the Sonata. Others were higher.
Did mine last week after the right foot well filled with water.
Had to run the car up on ramps and stick a dowel up the drain hose.
The filter was clogged with dirt.
A cheap new filter for my 06 Spectra was $18 at O'Reilly's.

I bought a Purolator from Advanced Auto. They do carry other brands
and you can pay over $20 for a filter.
Instructions were in the box. Easy to follow.
Take some of the junk out of the box.
On the side there are two twist off knobs. Take them out
On the outside right is a rod that keeps it from dropping. Unhook it
Open the compartment. Latch is on the right side
Slide out old filter, slide in the new, put things back.
