Question about 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe
Can you let me know how to change the fuel filter on my 05 Santa Fe? What is the recommended mileage?
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.

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.

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.
