Default fuel filter

I need to change the fuel filter on 2004 sedona LE, and I've been led to believe it is located inside the fuel tank.??

Basically I'm wanting to know how to do this, as I'm skint at the minute. Is it fairly straight forward? How do I access the thing, and is there anything I should look out for when replacing the filter with new one.

The actual filter itself is only about £10, so I'm hoping its quite an easy fix.

Default replacing fuel filter

I have done this on another injecter type motor. There is alot you need to. The first is SOMEHOW drain the tank COMPLETELY. After that the filler tube and vent line need removed. Do not be surprised if the places on the clamps are HARD to get at.

After that you need have the tank somehow supported so when the bolts are removed holding the tank on. The tank does not hit your head. Then a screwdriver will work to loosen the ring holding the pump down.

You will also see an electrical connecter. Remember the position it is facing. It goes on one direction only. Providing you did all this. You then need remove the lines from the pump. When you did that, you then remove the pump. Also remember the direction the pump faced. If put in wrong, you will need to fill tank frequently.

Just think after that, you get to put the tank back on, reconnect the filler, and vent lines. Put the petrol back in that was removed, and hope no mistakes were made.

While this may not be exact. Hopefully a good idea of the work needed has been made. I am not fond of repairs done at dealers. This may be one time their cost may be worth it.

I think you're right there. A job for the dealers, or at the very least a decent garage, if i can find one. I think the fuel pump may be on its way out too, so no doubt there'll be another big repair bill coming up.

Are you talking about the fuel filter or the pre filter? they are 2 different things. The prefilter is just a mesh net on the end of the pickup pipe in the tank. The filter is located to the drivers side on the inner wing next to the balloon shape pump.

skint is having little or no cash. Quite a common occurance in england at the minute.

In regards to there being 2 types of filter, I wasn't aware of that, so thanks. I imagine they'd both need replacing tho? Hopefully getting this done this week while I'm off work. Problem I seem to have is finding a decent mechanic who has worked on Kia's before, without having to go to a dealer, as I'm allergic to their prices.

Replacing the strainer wrap on the pump pickup tank internal is fraught with risk.
(Done from inside the vehicle thru body floor)
Confirm of you just have a fuel filter in line - somewhere on underside of vehicle, usually near firewall.

- Check your fuel flow by turning key to on - with one of the lines disconnected.
It will squirt if tank/pump fine...
