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.

    sounds like you have a non filtered model thats unfortunate but there are products that are made to kill vent odors abailable at your local parts store or online i woiuld try this next now that there is no filter to change.

    Here is a pic. The white filter looking thing in the back is to change heat from feet to windscreen but you probably already know that.

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.

SOURCE: 2002 kia sportage fuel line removal

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
