2023 Hyundai Kona-EV Air Filter And Wipers | Battery Details User Guide

The 2023 Hyundai Kona-EV is the most advanced electric vehicle that Hyundai has ever made. It has advanced lighting systems that are meant to look good and work well. LEDs are used in many new cars because they use less energy and last longer. However, the Kona-EV might use a mix of LEDs and standard halogens depending on its trim and optional features. These lights are carefully chosen to work best, whether they’re lighting up the road ahead or drawing attention to the shape of the car. Hyundai makes sure that every light source in the Kona-EV, from the bright headlights to the soft interior lights, fits with the car’s eco-friendly philosophy without sacrificing style or safety.

Filter Inspection

Replace the filter according to the Maintenance Schedule. If the vehicle is operated in severely air-polluted cities or on dusty rough roads for a long period, it should be inspected more frequently and replaced earlier. When you, the owner, replace the climate control air filter, replace it performing the following procedure, and be careful to avoid damaging other components.


  1. With the glove box open, remove the stoppers on both sides.
  2.  Remove the support strap (1).
  3.  Remove the climate control air filter case while pressing the lock on the right side of the cover.
  4. Replace the climate control air filter.
  5. Reassemble in the reverse order of disassembly.


Install a new climate control air filter in the correct direction otherwise, it may be noisy and the effectiveness of the filter may be reduced.


Blade Inspection

Contamination of either the windshield or the wiper blades with foreign matter can reduce the effectiveness of the windshield wipers. Common sources of contamination are insects, tree sap, and hot wax treatments used by some commercial car washes. If the blades are not wiping properly, clean both the window and the blades with a good cleaner or mild detergent, and rinse thoroughly with clean water.

To prevent damage to the wiper blades, arms or other components, do not:

  • Use gasoline, kerosene, paint thinner, or other solvents on or near them.
  • Attempt to move the wipers manually.
  • Use non-specified wiper blades.

Commercial hot waxes applied by automatic car washes have been known to make the windshield difficult to clean.

Wiper blades are a consumable item and normal wear of the wipers may not be covered by your vehicle warranty.

Blade Replacement

When the wipers no longer clean adequately, the blades may be worn or cracked, and require replacement.


  • In order to prevent damage to the hood and the wiper arms, the wiper arms should only be lifted when in the top wiping position.
  • Always return the wiper arms to the windshield before driving.
