Question 2002 Sportage fuse block

I need to change the fuel filter on my '02 sportage, so pressure must be released first. The diagram for fuse locations ain't there, so I don't know which fuse to pull to cut power to the fuel pump. Anybody have a diagram you can post (or a link to one)?

Also, the tool to release the fittings (at AutoZone) won't go between the filter housing and the fitting. Anybody know if there is some specialty tool or an alternate method of removing these fittings?

Thanks for any help.

Dont know if of help but manual for 1995 - 2002 says to run engine and pull connector from pump on top of tank access until engine stalls then re-connect - this will depressurise system. I have a CD with User and Workshop manuals on for all models 1995 - 2002 (it says) - I had a look at the manual only yesterday as have a fuel system prob on my 1999 model and it does show pictures of this as need to do it myself. I could do you a copy of CD for £5 GBP (8$ to usa)which includes postage. To pay via Paypal as they do automatic currency conversion too. If this is of help let me know on philsbargainstore@gmail.com. Regards.

In the main fuse box, you'll see 2 relays at the bottom. The one to the right is the fuel pump relay. You can confirm this by having someone turn the ignition to on and feel the relay clicking. Above that, you'll see 3 10 amp fuses lined vertically. The very last one to the right will be for the fuel pump. Pull that, run the vehicle until it stalls and crank it for a few seconds.

Haven't had the chance to change out the filter yet so you might try to see if the tool will work with some effort. Otherwise see if they can match the release fitting with the new filter. Good luck.

Play it safe. Simply disconnect the ground strap from the battery. Yes, I know you will have to reset the clock and the radio presets, but it best to make sure there are no live circuits on the car when messing with the fuel system.

This will cause the engine to quit due to lack of spark. The idea is to run it out of fuel, thereby draining the pressure from the system. As for live circuits, the ignition will get turned off prior to changing the filter. Probably not a bad idea to disconect the battery at this point, tho.

Paco - Thanks for your help (sorry for this delay in my response). I got another tool with shorter 'nubs' and looks like it may fit. I'll let you know.

I just got done putting a new fuel tank and fuel lines in my '01. You don't actually need a special tool to release the fittings. There is a "finger grip" on each side of the fitting. You grasp the fitting at these two locations, push the fitting further onto the fuel filter, then squeeze the grips and pull it off the filter. Just push in onto the new filter once installed. They're really pretty slick.

Thank, Bur. The 'finger grip' thing made changing the filter real easy.

Now if they could do something similar for access to the spark plugs.......
