If it's simialr to my mazda...there's a push-in clip and a retractable cord that support the glove box. Detach the cord and push in the clip and it should drop down and slide out.
The filter should be behind a clip-on compartment door.

This is one of those topics that I have seen both ways.
1. The 2004 was the only MY to include an airfilter. 2. The late build 2004 to 2008 could have a dealer installed cabin air filter kit installed.
So don't be shocked if you go fishing for it, and it is not there. On to the directions :
Open the passenger-side glove compartment box. Remove all of the items currently stored in the glove box
Notice two screws on the inside ceiling of the glove box securing the glove box to the dashboard. Use a flat-head screwdriver to remove these screws. The glove box will now be loose. Wiggle the box off the dashboard and allow it to hang.
Locate the rectangular plastic housing; this is where the cabin air filter is stored. Remove the housing cover by pulling it out of place. Remove the dirty cabin air filter by sliding it out of the clips securing it in place. Discard the dirty filter.
Slide the replacement cabin air filter into the retainer clips. Push the filter housing cover back into place until you hear it lock. Place the glove compartment back into place. Replace the two screws that secure the glove box in place and tighten with the screwdriver. Place the items back into the glove box and close the box.
usually the pollen filter is located under the windshield in the shroud area or some place where air enters the cabin of the car check also your airfilter cannister it will be in or on the fire wall or door jam look carefully alos you can have the dealership or an auto parts store tell you the location of the part.
I just did this on our 2007 Sonata. 1. open the glove box. On both sides of the glove box, there is a black tab which prevents the glove box from opening to far. The Chilton manual says to remove these, but that is more difficult then simply pressing inward on the sides of the glove box to release them from the channel. Now the glove box should open even more. Next, remove the piston arm from the right side of the glove box. You can do this by removing the panel on the side of the dash, but you first need to open the passenger door. You can also just use a screwdriver or other tool to slip the piston of without removing the dash side panel. Now with the glove box hanging fully open, you can see the cabin filter box. There are tabs on both sides of the front that you simply press together in order to slide the filter out of the box. This whole process from beginning to end should only take about 10 minutes and is very simple.
To change the cabin air filter one needs to remove the glove box first. This is reasonably simple and involves a couple of screws, the rubber glove box limit pads, and a 10mm nut. The air filter is located in the heater assembly directly behind the glove box. The filter is removed by releasing the plastic clip holding the filter and withdrawing the filter forwards. (The filter is installed like a vertical drawer.)
Open glove compartment. Press inward at both sides of the glove compartment, then lower the glove compartment.Remove the lower side instrument panel and crash trim pad.
Remove the four glove compartment upper cover retaining screws, then the cover. Remove the two glove compartment retaining bolts, then the glove compartment. Press on the cabin air filter cover tab, then remove the cove Remove the cabin air filter from the blower unit opening. Install a new cabin filter, ensuring the air flow marking is facing in the proper direction. Install the cabin air filter cover, ensuring the cover is properly installed. Position the glove compartment to the instrument panel, then install the two retaining bolts. Install the glove compartment upper cover. Install the lower side instrument panel crash pad. Lift the glove compartment into position. Close the glove compartment.
It should be the same general procedure as the 02. Open Glove box and remove contents. Remove glove box stops and or glove box shock on side. With the glove box swung out of the way remove the panel that covers the air filter. Remove and replace filter. Reinstall cover, and glove box stops.
