sorry guys sir rio is absolutely right ! they obviously pumped out a few cars from the factory WITHOUT a fuel filter ! After jacking up my neighbors 2004 kia rio to do a simple fuel filter change, following the same diagram as previously posted. I roll under the front of the drivers rear wheel, then behind, then in front ! Run back to my comp., scratching my head.Now roll under all 4 corners of fuel tank ! Okay maybe its tucked up out of sight. So i drop the tank, still nothing !Besides scratching my head, now i'm thinking i've bumped my head while searching for this elusive fuel filter !! sitting dumbfounded a friend walks up & my now angered nieghbor (i told m' the filter change would take 30 min to an hour tops!)My frnd now laughing googles 'the location of filter', its in the tank! so now i got the back seat out, remove the plate, pull out the pump/sending unit, still not seeing anything that looks like the part i got ! I see three tabs on this plastic coffee can size gas pouring all over me part. Like a mad man i open it. my frnd says 'see there it is' No that is just the pick up filter bag. Now my nieghbor who was seen sighting me in on his 30'06 rifle scope thinking that i'm a complete idiot !!#@ Now my frnd intrigued takes a gander under, around following every sq. in. of fuel line frm tank to inj. As word got around to my mech. inadequacy other nieghbors stopped by for a laugh a few drunk i put a wager on it. So even though i lost my ass on a simple filter chng i won a $125!! THanks kia for brainfarting (at least 2) no fuel filter kia rios!!
