Go to and register vehicle by VIN #. Then you will have access to shop manuals, service bulletins, wiring diagrams, etc.

    this last one was the best answer i found, unfortunately to give a more direct answer to the question, the absolute answer (after many painful and useless quests for the answer) is that there is no external filter and also no pan filter, the filter is inside the actual transmission which is only accessable when rebuiding it. there is no need to change the filter, just the fluid with a flush is all you can do with it.

    Your information is correct -- the filter (screen) is inside the transmission

I just want to know where the transmission filter is on a 2005 Hyundai Elantra and how often the filter and fluid need changing?

Most Japanese/Korean made cars actually have no transmission filter...such as hyundai, toyota, honda. Fluid changes should be listed in your owners manual...I think its between 60,000-80,000kms...but I changed mine earlier in my elantra and added in some Lucas for trannys since I noticed mine shifting hard between second and third...cleared it up.
