As far as I understand it, your pollen filter is filthy and should be cleaned or replaced.

In lieu of a better (more specialized) answer, I would use high temperature grease. Nothing too expensive though, I doubt those hinges get hotter than 500F.

The best method I've heard for cleaning really dirty vents is compressed air. Depending on the sources available, you should be able to blow most of the loose dust off the sides of the ventilation system. Even a can of compressed air from the local office supply store is better than nothing. Obviously, depending on the configuration of a particular car, ...

Your Sonata has a cabin air filter (CAF). You should try to change that out first. More than likely, you have some mildew built up somewhere. The CAF is the first place to start.

Air Vent Odor This issue is bacteria in the ventilation system. this is not related to charging the air conditioning system as some have indicated. They are seperated systems and you do not get freon in your cabin by using the air conditioner.

You can use a long hook (used in dentistry) to reach in and hopefully loop the item, or again attach it to a ...

I made a mistake as I double checked the operation of the vents and it turns out the middle vents do turn off when they're supposed to. I was under the impression the outter vents would turn off as well but they don't as they're tied directly to the mini-vents that point towards the driver or passenger window. I just closed the outer vents to direct more ...

There are three main possibilities that are on my mind for what your problem is: 1) The blower motor is going bad and just needs replacing. I'm not sure where the access to the blower motor is on your vehicle, but generally this is a fairly easy repair to do. 2) The blend door in the HVAC enclosure is sticking or the motor is being overdriven, producing a ...

STOP DRIVING IT until you get the exhaust leak fixed .You can easily be overcome by the carbon monoxide.While driving the air moving under the car is sweeping away the exhaust,when you are still the exhaust is leaking into the passanger compartment.
