Cabin air filter?

Does anyone know if there is a cabin air filter in the 2012 KK? A while back, while driving cross country, my AC froze up and now every time the AC starts up, it has a horrible musty, mildewy, moldy smell. It's nasty for a while then goes away, but I'm hoping for a solution.

Right behind the glove. Once open squeeze the sides together and it folds out enough to access it.

2012 KK Filter - (Air Particulate) Removal

From the 2012 KK Factory Service Manual:

REMOVAL
WARNING: Disable the airbag system before attempting any steering wheel, steering column or instrument panel component diagnosis or service. Disconnect and isolate the negative battery (ground) cable, then wait two minutes for the airbag system capacitor to discharge before performing further diagnosis or service. This is the only sure way to disable the airbag system. Failure to follow these instructions may result in accidental airbag deployment and possible serious or fatal injury.

WARNING: Always make sure the A/C-heater system is turned off and that the ignition switch is in the OFF position prior to servicing the cabin air filter. Never place fingers or other objects into the filter opening of the HVAC housing. Failure to follow this warning may result in serious injury.

NOTE: LHD model shown in illustrations. RHD model similar.

NOTE: Illustration shown with instrument panel removed for clarity.

Remove the glove box bin.

Disengage the two retaining tabs (1) that secure the cabin air filter cover (2) to the passenger side of the HVAC housing (3) and remove the cover.

12 KK Filter - (Air Particulate) Installation

From the 2012 KK Factory Service Manual:

INSTALLATION

NOTE: The cabin air filter is labeled with an arrow to indicate air flow direction through the filter. Make sure to properly install the cabin air filter. Failure to properly install the filter will result in the need to replace the filter sooner than required by design.

NOTE: LHD model shown in illustrations. RHD model similar.

See first illustration:
Install the cabin air filter (1) into the filter opening in the HVAC housing (2). Insert the cabin air filter directly into the housing with the arrow on the filter pointing to the floor.

See second illustration:
Position the cabin air filter cover (2) to the HVAC housing (3) and engage the two retaining tabs (1) that secure the cover to the housing. Make sure the retaining tabs are fully engaged.

Install the glove box bin.
