Forget the dealership,undo a trans line running from the auto box to the oil cooler(this is a separate cooler),have a container marked out underneath this marked out for 1 litre,start the engine so this litre pumps out, stop the engine, push hose/line back onto the cooler,add 1 litre of new fluid down the dipstick tube for auto fluid,undo the line again/start car to empty another litre and repeat.Dont forget 7.8 lts,will take a while,I use another litre to finish off process.Start this job after the auto has warmed up a little,only do if you feel confident.Dont fret about the "SP-III" fluid unless you are anal about your car(i am anyway).In Perth Australia,Hyundai dealerships want $157-$166 for 4 litres of the magic fluid.I rang 5 dealerships who told me it was against company policy to suggest an aftermarket fluid but the last call put me thru to a young mechanic who said they use Dexron III,valvoline,Mobil.I am using Penrite fully synthetic(labels says covers Hyundai SP-III) at $40 for 4 litres.I am not touching the pan or filter.

The best method is called 'Fluid Exchange" and is accomplised by a fluid transfer machine (very expensive). Call/go by your nearest Hyundai dealership. They can do it for you. If you want to do it yourself, you'll need the Hyundai specific fluid called 'SP III' (SP -w/3 I's) If you don't have this fluid exchange machine, best you have the technicians at the dealership do it. Here's the problem, you can't drain more than 3 quarts by draining the pan (Trans has approx 7 qt system). The majority of the fluid is in the torque converter (which does not drain)... that's why it's a fluid exchange process.

Where is trans. filter located on 06 hyundai tucson 2.7 auto.4x4

The filter is inside the trans. It is not under maintenance schedule unless the transmission has undergone a major malfunction and needs to be replaced during overhaul. This is done at the factory. The only maintenance schedule is fluid replacement/flush every 30,000 miles.
