It requires removing the rear wheel well, under the filler tube. From hmaservice:
1 Remove the rear left wheel house inner cover (Refer to "BD" Group in this WORKSHOP MANUAL).
2.Disconnect the hose (A) connected with the canister and remove the fuel tank air filter ( from the filler-neck assembly after unscrewing the mounting bolts ©.
If I were you, I wouldn't bother with it unless you drive in dusty conditions, or you have a problem filling the fuel tank, or you have some sort of fuel pressure problem. Then I would change it.
I was just looking at this today, as my 2007 Elantra is coming due for 30k miles. First of all, I had a heck of a time finding the part. I called the two local dealerships part departments (which by the way are affiliated under a single owner). Both took a while trying to identify it. They quoted me a price of around $11, but said it was special order and they don't sell many of them.
So I called both dealership's service departments. The first told me that because it was an "internal" filter, it doesn't get changed. I called the other service department and got the same answer, and was more direct about the warranty. She told me flat out that failing to change it won't void the warranty, and said that they never change it as part of their service packages.
Nevertheless, right in my manual's service schedule -- the one that the warranty says you must adhere to -- it's got an R under 30k miles.
So, has anyone gotten anything definitive from Hyundai about not being required to change this at 30k?
