How to replace engine air filter on a Hyundai

In this guide, you will find step-by-step video instructions on how to change Hyundai air filter. These instructions apply to the engine air filter and not the cabin air filter. 

These video clips were recorded on a 2016 Hyundai Elantra but owners of other models such as Veloster, Azera, Santa Fe, Sonata, Elantra, Accent and Sedona will find these instructions helpful. 

What you will need


Open hood and locate engine air filter

Release clips and remove the old filter

Install new filter in the housing

To install an air filter on your Hyundai all you need is 15 minutes and a good replacement air filter that fits in the original filter housing. All you will need to do is lift up the two clips on the side of the air filter housing. Pull out the old air filter and slip in the new one. The dealer will charge you over $50 to do this. You can change the filter yourself in a matter of minutes.
