check under the glove box door to see if you can see the hinges. Sometimes you can unscrew the hinges from the bottom. Else you have to knock out the hinge pin on both hinges, open the door from the bottom and see if you can swing the door up to undo the latch.
If this does not work, cut a hole in the bottom ot the glove box, it is usually made of plastic or papier mache, release the latch from inside, then you can remove the plastic box once it is open and replace it with a new one. It will cost you, but it will be less expensive that breaking down the metal door!
You need to replace the whole glove box door. Pry the panel on the right side of the dash off, remove the t25 screw, remove the 3 t20 screws along the bottom of the glove box, and the t20 screws that you can see inside the glove box. This will loosen it enough to pull the whole glove box loose. Then you need to remove the damper by prying the little plastic pin out. Then remove the bracket it secures to that has a t20 screw in it. There are 2 plastic pins in the hinges that need to be popped out, once this is done, the door will come off. Reassembly is the reverse.
If the pins are difficult to reinstall, file the new glove box door hinge holes with a round file. I usually shoot a little oil into the damper too, just to make operation easier.
Hi. The 2006 Kia sorento is not equipped wiht a cabin air filter. Only the 07 and 08 sorentos are equipped wiht this filter. With that said; If your vehicel had a filter, it would be located just behind the glove box. If you were to access it for replacment, you would Open the glove box and remove the side stops so the glove box can swing fully down and hang on its hinges. Once that is done, you will be able to access to the cabin air filter and the clips which hold it in place.
To access the fuse panel the glove box must be removed. It is removed by slipping the glove box strap off the hook and letting the door roll down off its hinges. To reinstall, position the glove box door at an 8 o’clock orientation, engage the hinge hook formations on the lower edge of the glove box door with the hinge pins on the lower edge of the instrument panel. Tilt the upper edge of the glove box door upward toward the instrument panel enough to reattach the glove box strap to the door. Rotate glove box door to closed position. Open and close to insure proper installation.
open the glove box door, remove everything from inside the glove box. remove the clip retaining the door-stop strap. pivot the glove box downward,unsnap the hinges from the instrument panel and remove the glove box. install in the reverse manner.
First, take a good look at what you’re doing.
Look on the right side of open glove box and locate a plastic lever. You will see grooves on the end connected to the glove box. The grooved area is the spot to place the thumb in order to press this lever off the glove box when it comes time to do that.
Look up under the glove box. You will see two brass colored screws one on each side of the bottom of the glove box. These screws go up through two square plastic hinges that are attached to the glove box and into the the dash frame.
Okay, with the glove box closed remove the two brass colored screws, and put them aside so you won’t lose them..
Open the glove box and hold the glove box with your left hand and press on the plastic lever (grooved area) located on the right side of the glove box. This lever (the lever already mentioned above) is slotted and will pop off the glove box.
Put the glove box carefully aside.
Look straight in behind the glove box. You will see a rectangular black plastic cover approximately 1.5 inches wide by 8 inches long. On the right and left side are arrows pointing in. Press the arrows and pull out on the cover. This will slide out the tray that holds the filter. Remove old filter and insert the new one, flow arrows pointing down.
Retrieve glove box, hold in place, and attach plastic plastic lever to the right side of the glove box. The reverse of removal.
Next, the two plastic hinges located on the bottom of the glove box fit underneath the dash frame.
While holding the glove box in place (the glove box latch may hold glove box in place while installing screws) re-install the two screws through the plastic hinges into the frame and tighten.
Hope this helps you.
I am actually changing mine now. It is located behind the glovebox. You have to remove the glovebox on the passenger side.
Open the glove box.
Detach the ******** the left or right. It keeps the glovebox from swinging straight down. It is hooked on the dashboard trim with a U-shaped molded hook. The hook is soft plastic so you can push on it without snapping it.
After the hook is detached, allow the glovebox to swing straight down. Pick up everything that falls out.
Now you can get to the resistor.
If you want to take the glove box off the rest of the way, unhook it from 3 hinges.
Bend the glovebox until the right hinge unsnaps. Do the same to the left. Then pull the box off the center hinge.
