Hi Guys,

I have just joined up here and was wondering if anyone could tell me how to change the intank fuel filter in my 2007 Getz.
I am aware it is located under the back seat. I have purchased the new filter and it comes with some little plastic clip thing and 1 o-ring.
Is it easy to see where they go when you pull th eold filter out. Also are there any tricks to any difficult parts of doing this change over?

Thanks in advance.

I have done the petrol filter change four times on my Getz now by myself.

And it getz easier every time.

You will have to lift you seat up and unclip the carpet to gain acces to the pannel.
Remove the top pannelwith a socket and ratchet of the correct size.
You will see that there is a black rubber muck that is the seal of the pannel to stop fumes ect to enter the cabin, just pull the pannel off an try not to lose any of the sealant as it can be used again and again.

Now take out the filter with the float (fuel level) unit.

take everything apart , taking photographic memory like shots with your mind remembering where everything fitted. (not as hard as it sounds)

now you will have to put in all the o-rings into the new filter that you took out from the old one. (it helps to put it in its place as you take it out of the old one)

Rebuild the float to the filter and pop it back in the tank.
close up the pannel and carpet and flip back you seat.

Hope it helps a little.

Thanks for the help mate. All was going well until i went to slide the pump up inside the filter and attempt to put the bottom on it only to discover the pump wouldnt go all the way into the filter. Apparently there are 2 filters & Hyundai say the new 1 supersedes the old 1. Well wrong it is clearly visible that there is and extended part on the filter that prevents the pump going all the way iin, and that stops you getting the clip on the bottom. I purchased my filter from Repco and even there data says they will fit, i explained it to him on the phone so he got both versions off the shelf and agreed with me 100% it wont fit. Everything else is identical except this 1 section Not happy waste of an hour stuffing around and will have to do it all again. How hard are the plastic clip bits to get it all apart. Thouhg ti was going to break something.
I am getting the Timing Belt changed next week at a great price of $275 fitted from Auto Leaders, Hyundai want just under $600. pfftt

Thats a crap one. But think of it this way, at least now you will get the experience of doing it one more time. And the next time will just go so much smoother , and will know to check if youve been issued the correct one.

I know the clips are stubborn to click back in. But thay do go in eventually.


Let us know how it goes.

Well i pulled the fuel filter back out today and put the new one in. Much easier when you are given the correct part, it almost fell back together it was that easy.
Took about 20 minutes to do the complete job.
I cut th eold filter with a hax saw to have a look at the paper filter, wow was it black.
Well in other news i replaced the spark plugs the othe rday they hav edone 45,000km over 18 months and honestly they look almost brand new, all with the same colour to them which is always a good sign. OK this was 18 months ago but, I had the car serviced by my Hyundai dealer at 45,000km and was told i needed new Front Brake Pads in a few weeks, so i had a look and they still had approx 3/4 of the pad remaining. I hav ejust checked them again and they are approx half worn or not even half worn, not bad for 90,000km.
