Ok, so I've searched the endless possibilities of the web; watched video after video; read article after article; searched underneath my 2008 Hyundai Accent from rear to front and back again, to no avail. I finally gave up and called a dealership. Turns out that the fuel filter is located ON TOP of the gas tank. As helpful as the diagram Paul posted is, I can't get to the fuel filter the same way as the pump underneath the back seat. According to the technician I spoke to, I have to drop the gas tank to change the fuel filter. What a pain in the @$&
The gas filter is located inside the gas tank in a 2005 Santa Fe. It is part of the fuel pump assembly located in the left side of the gas tank. It can be located by removing the left rear seat, folding a panel in the carpet out of the way, and removing a small metal plate in the floor.
I have an '03 Hyundai Accent 1600cc. I am told by the techies at the local dealer, the fuel filter is ON the fuel tank. You gain access to it by removing the back seat, then opening the panel beneath the back seat. Replace the filter, screw the panel back onto the floor and the job is done....
The fuel filter on a 2005 Hyundai Accent depending on where it was manufactured and when, is possibly external and on the outside of the fuel tank directly above the fuel pump and accessible by removing the back seat. Or it is actually inside the fuel tank and requires removing the back seat, the metal panel, the fuel pump itself and then accessing the filter. Your vin. no. can determine which model you have and of course how much work you'll have to do
The fuel filter location for a 2005 Hyundai Accent depends on where it was manufactured and when. It is possibly mounted external, on the outside of the fuel tank directly above the fuel pump and accessible by removing the back seat. The other possibility is that it is mounted inside the fuel tank and requires removing the back seat, the metal panel, the fuel pump itself and then accessing the filter.
