I believe the 03 is the same as an 04 and the fuel filter is under the car near the drivers rear wheel. No need to remove the fuel pump.

The fuel filter is located ON the tank, exactly where jcwit said it was. The Fuel pump is located IN the tank. It doesn't matter if it's a 2001 or a 2005 it's all the same.

hello

while i am sure your diagram is correct...any reason my dealer would tell me my fuel filter is not servicable....and replace my fuel pump under warranty instead of allowing me to pay them to change a basic fuel filter?

not being a dick here, seriously because i looked for the filter for a couple of days based on previous posts....thats when i finnaly took it in...and got the aformentioned answer....

anyone else have this issue with the missing fuel filter....

confused

I think the guys at your dealership are missing a few brain cells. That's the only thing that appears to be missing. That diagram is directly out of a Kia factory service manual for the Rio, which is available online. The only filter in the tank would be the screen on the inlet of the pump. Other then that my 04 has it in the exact place show in that picture.

if you look under the car. Drivers side. Near the rear tire you well see a black round piece with 3 hoses 2 on one side and 1 on the other side
