Question about 2008 Hyundai Tucson
Things You'll Need:
Fuel-line disconnect tool
New fuel pump
Flat head screwdriver
Ratchet and socket
The assistance of a friend (only when you are ready to remove the back seat)
Rubber hose plugs
Two adjustable wrenches
Locate the fuse panel under the hood of your vehicle, then open it and remove the fuel pump fuse with your hands.
Start your car and allow the fuel system to depressurize by allowing the car to idle until the engine dies.
Reinstall the fuse, then disconnect the battery with a ratchet and socket. Drain the gas from the gas tank with a siphoning kit.
Remove the back seat by unbolting the base with a ratchet and socket and lifting the seat out with your hands. The bolts are located on either side of the seat near the base. You will also need the assistance of another person to lift the seat out safely.
Remove the wiring harness by gently pulling it from the connector, and detach the rubber grommet with a flat head screwdriver. Unbolt the fuel tank cover with a ratchet and socket, remove it with your hands, pull the wires through the grommet, detach the fuel line hoses with a fuel-line disconnect tool, and lift the hoses out. Cap the hoses with rubber hose plugs.
Reach directly into the gas tank, then remove the fuel filter using two adjustable wrenches, placing one on either side of the fuel filter. You will recognize the fuel filter by its filtering paper cartridges.
Install the new filter, then follow the previous steps in reverse to complete the installation. Refill your gas take when finished

The filter is not serviceable. There is no filter, per se, it's a screen sock at the bottom of the fuel pump inside the fuel tank - no replacement required in its lifetime.... unless contamination occurred, then you'd want to replace the entire assembly/pump, not just the screen sock.

If you're looking for a spare, try checking a junk yard/wreck yard (cheapest bet),depending on where you live, check the local auto listings (In my area we have the Smart Shopper where people list various things, spare tires included) otherwise if you want to buy new contact your local Hyundai dealership.
