Are air cleaner filter and Climate Control Air Filter / Air Conditioning Filter (for evaporator and blower unit) the same thing? Hyundai cites them as if they were different in the 15K miles inspection list. If they are different, would I be able to replace the Climate Control Air Filter / Air Conditioning Filter myself without using special professional tools.

My car has 15000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi Alex. Thanks for contacting us today. These are two different filters. One is located under the passenger side of the dashboard, that can be removed fairly easily, the other is behind the dash and accessible through the engine compartment. If you’re going to attempt any self-service on your new Hyundai, you should probably purchase a service and repair manual - so you can follow their specific instructions and learn what tools you need.
