How do you replace the fuel filter in a 2001 Hyundai Elantra La Vita?
You have to take out the back seat (remove the two bolts behind the cushion and lift the seat out). The fuel pump is under a round cover,(the fuel filter is in the gas tank) you will need a flathead screwdriver to pry it open. There are three connections, an electrical connector, a fuel supply line and a fuel return line. Unplug the elecrical connector and start the engine,(to release the fuel pressure) & let it run until it stalls, you can then remove the fuel line and return line. All you have to do then is take out the 8 bolts that hold the pump in and remove the pump. the fuel filter is inside the pump. Sounds easy right?
