Question about 2006 Kia Spectra
My Kia dealer wants $90 to replace my fuel tank air filter (parts & labor). I am trying to see if I can do it myself. Where is the filter located? I've heard it is on the filler pipe and even have a diagram showing it to be there, but when I got under the car, no filter. I suspect they are only tacking on the filter replacement to supplement the "free" repair they are doing to a valve that is bad. Can you tell me where the fuel tank air filter is on my 2006 Kia Spectra and how to replace it? Is it an easy repair for a 'do it yourselfer' with moderate skills?
Actually you need to remove the rear left splash shield (black plastic lining inside the fender). You should see the part attached to the filler neck with a strap tie. You'll need to cut the strap tie, disconnect the electrical connector and remove the hose clamp holding the filter on to the vent hose. Install is the reverse of removal, just make sure to tightly strap the filter back to the filler tube or it'll rattle when you hit bumps. Good luck!
