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.

It is located behind the glove compartment. You will need to open the glove compartment and remove the glove compartment door by taking off the screws at the hinges. This will give access to the cabin air filter housing. Remove the top of it and take out the old filter. Note the arrow position and put the new one in the same way. Place the top on and install the glove compartment door again. Thanks for using Fixya.

2005 Kia Sorento cabin air filter

On the Sportage you remove the two support cables and then push the sides of the box in to get past the stops.
I would think the Sorento would be the same.

How to replace cabin filter 2006 Kia sorento

Cabin filters are usually behind the glove boxes or under the wiper under the hood on the passenger side. The glove box has a couple stops usually that just push out and several screws that will need removed depending on the vehicle. It's a little cramped to work on but anyone can do it themselves. You really can just rinse them out and dry them with a compressor and spray a tad of Lysol on them if they're not too bad. For the ones under the hood ...look for fasteners(push-pins) etc. and remove washer lines, weatherstripping(seal) and any other obstacles preventing you from accessing the front edge of the panel that is located under the wiper which you just lip up to get to the filter that is tucked under the panel. Be gentle tugging and pulling and it's an easy task.

How do I remove the glove box? I want to replace the cabin air filter.

Just to let everyone out there know that in a 2006 Kia Sorento you have to really tug hard upwardly to pop off the 2 plastic "C" shaped hinges off of the small plastic rods on both sides of the glove box after removing the cable (use needle nose on the cable). Be careful as I put some silicone on the tabs to help get it back on.THERE IS NO CABIN FILTER IN THE 2006!! I even had a dealer tell me they had one. Trust me on this. You will even find them for sale.
