Bought the filter, read the blogs, went to the car with 2 screwdrivers, pliers, and used only my hands. Just keep in mind you're pushing & pulling plastic/rubber pieces, and a 6 year old has more than adequate power to do the deed. Pull side dash panel by golve box, helps access everything. Super simple operation . . . 3-4 min max.

I recommend the filter generically, but not for the '09 Sonata. After I ordered this on-line for my '09 Sonata, I read a blog that the Purolator C35661 does not fit, which is regretfully correct. Other blogs that recommend cutting down a household furnace filter are simply ludicrous because the household filter does not have either the filtration efficiency, the mounting tabs that keep the filter tight (hence the rattle some report), or in the case of thick fiberglass cut-to-size fliters, the rigidity that prevents the filter from being sucked into the fan mounted just below the filter. I then discovered a "Hyundai Cabin Air Filter Application Chart" that shows that Hyundai has been frequently changing Cabin Air Filters, and changed this part twice since 2007, but Purolator hasn't. A trip to the dealer confirmed the part # change, and a competitive price. Thankfully, I also have a '09 Sante Fe, and this just happens to be the correct Cabin Air Filter for it --- so no need to return it to the store.
Changing the filter is quite easy, but no instruction I have seen explains clearly how to get the glove box disconnected from the fragile plastic mounts. But try this: Open and empty the glovebox. Use your fingernail to lift a retention tab (on each side of the glovebox) slightly on the edge facing you and hold it in the lifted position as you gently push the clovebox door in the closed direction. As you do that, the tab will slide out of the hole in the wall of the glovebox. After a little practice, you will get both tabs to slide forward enough to clear their holes in the glovebox as well as the holes in the dash. Then the whole glove box will pivot to the floor and dump everything you didn't remove. There is no need to actually remove the retention tabs from their glovebox holes. Then pinch the end of the pivot rod so you can slide the glovebox off and set it aside in order to get to the filter cover facing you. Notice that the side of the tabs that fit into the dash have small rubber rings on them. Don't lose these, as they cushion the glovebox when it opens. Next, the plastic clamps on the filter door are part of the door and are also fragile. Just squeeze both of them together like clothespins to release the filter cover. Next, use care as you slide the old filter towards you so you don't brush leaves into the fan motor below. Notice the two edges of the filter that slide into the track are longer than the tabs on the back and front. They keep the filter tight so it doesn't rattle when the fan runs. For reassembly, replace the glove box on its hinge and gently pivot it to a partly closed position as the tabs engage their dash holes. After a few open-close cycles, the tabs will pull themselves into place in the side of the glovebox. Quick, clean and easy filter change!

                  What can you say about an air filter? It was a fine replacement part, fit my vehicle, and was an easy fix. Dealership and garage would charge over [$] for labor, I spent half of that on just the part and it took all of 15 minutes (I had to learn to remove my glovebox carefully).

                      This filter, which is the specified filter for the '09 Santa Fe at the dealership and parts stores, is simply the wrong filter for most '09 Santa Fes. Thanks to an understanding Hyundai Parts Dept in 2010 when they replaced the original filter with one that rattled with the fan on, we kept going thru filters until we found one that matched the one that came in the Santa Fe. The correct Cabin Air filter is Hyundai 08790-2G000-A, or Purolator C36157, or equivalent. It fits the '09 Sonata and, as it turns out, most '09 Santa Fes. The specified filter is too small and will be a loose fit, the C36157 is a perfect match for the one that came in my '09 Sonata.

                          I believe that the cabin air filter should be located behind the glove box in your vehicle.

                          A:

                          You should not have to completely remove the glove box to replace the cabin air filter. If you open the glove box and gently push in the sides of the box and then the glove box should drop down some more giving you access to behind the glove box.
