Question about Cars & Trucks
2002 kia sportage XSE in the uk. Could someone please tell me if it has a pollen air filter. I have looked all over the internet and cannot find the answer. It smells horrible when using the fan heater. Many thanks in advance
Your vehicle should have a cabin filter directly behind the glove box. Its pretty straightforward removing and replacing. Just remove the glove box and you will see a cover with two tabs to depress then you pull basicly a drawer that the filter is in replace the filter and reinstall the drawer and the glove box. Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Hi Chris, thanks for your reply. I did what you said but unfortunately there was no filter although the was a big black plastic box shape sitting on top of a round electrical thing but no access unless i take half the car apart lol."

SOURCE: fuel loss on kia sportage 2002..
I had exactly the same problem. The problem was with the fuel line clamps directly under the air plenum on the right side of the engine, right above the fuel injectors. The solution is to replace the factory spring clamps with proper hose clamps - a buck each. The real problem is that to get at the inside clamp, you have to remove the air plenum. It took me about 90 minutes to get it off and the same to reassemble. Not all that difficult, just very time consuming.

there are two pins one on each side that lock, you have to stick a small screw driver under each one to open them from the filter side. It is easier to remove the filter from the bracket
