In 2002 they discontinued the external trans filter. So your vehicle could have the external filter. If you look next to the trans dipstick tube, on top of the trans case you will see the filter or you will see just a spot where the filter use to go before they eliminated it. Yes, the filter does llok like a regular engine oil filter. If the trans does not have the external filter ontop then there is no service to the filter to be done, the only recommendation is to bring vehicle into a shop to have the fluid flushed. By the way, make SURE you use the correct Hyundai SP-III trans fluid (not dexron/mercon). This fluid is specific to the Hyundai and can not be purchased from auto parts stores, only the dealership. Failure to use SP-III will cause premature wear to the internal bands and clutches.

SOURCE: How to change fuel filter in 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe

Hi,

Please follow the steps to change the fuel filter. You would need to remove the left rear seat (four 14mm bolts). I think you'll need to finish cutting through the tabs on the carpet to be able to lift up the carpet. Then remove the access cover. You can then remove the fuel pump from the top of the tank.

Thank you for contacting Fixya.com

SOURCE: how can I change the fuel filter in my Hyundai

If this is a UK spec Santa Fe CRTD then the fuel filter is on the bulkhead on the passenger side under the bonnet. The holding bracket has to be removed.It is then a straight swop. There is a water trap at the bottom of the filter. It is only slightly difficult to get at, but nothing to worry about.
When I had to change mine I did not have to blok any pipes as when the motor is not running then no fuel is being pumped to the filter, Yes a small amount of fuel did come out but that was only the fuel in the pipe from the pump to the filter.
The aftermarket filter is about half the size of the ori filter.

The fuel filter on your vehicle is an integral part of the fuel pump/sender assembly located inside the fuel tank. It is serviced only as a complete assembly and cannot be replaced alone.

Where is the fuel filter in a 2007 Hyundai Tiburon?


Actually, yes, the fuel filter is located on the electric fuel pump, inside the tank, accessed via a small plate under the rear seat.)

Here is a funny thread about Jiffy Lube thinking they can change one.

http://www.hyundai-forums.com/cm-2007-2012-santa-fe/133876-mystery-fuel-filter-2007-sf-2-7l-v6.html

and here is a great step by step post with pictures.

So after all the questions about where our fuel filters are, how many there are etc etc I decided to make this DIY while replacing mine. My car is an 05 V6, so there may be slight differences, especially with 2003-2004 Tibs with the return-less fuel system (I believe the main filter is different). In my owner's manual it says to replace the fuel filter every 37,500 miles (strange interval I know). I checked hmaservice for an 08 and it says the same thing. For an 04 it says every 52,500. Follow your specific manual.

So let's get started. Tools: 12mm socket with extension; 8mm socket with extension (phillips screwdriver might work); pliers; flathead screwdriver; bucket (recommended)

Check the fuel filter installation. You may have installed it backwards. The arrow on the filter should point toward the engine.

TRANSMISION OIL TYPE!


You need to use Hyundai Diamond ATF SP-II M or any fluid which lists compatible. I recommend Hyundai brand fluid but aftermarket is ok. The listing would be on the bottle. Do no use Dextron / Mercon fluids.

please rate my anwers.
Thanks
