2001 2.7L Santa Fe Fuel Filter Replacement

by chance does anyone have a Fuel Filter DIY with pictures on the 2001 santa fe 2.7L 4WD V6? I've looked in every spot and I can't seem to find the fuel filter. I've looked in the cargo bay for an access door to no avail, looked under the seats as well. Every bit of help will be greatly appreciated.

So in otherwards its sold with a new fuel pump assembly? According to the haynes manual the fuel filter is located on the driver side near the corner of the tank on a frame rail. I'm used to working on german cars not korean cars at least on german cars they put all the common wear and tear items where they can be easily replaced. how far can the fuel tank be extended downwards and is there enough clearance to reach in to disconnect the filter?

THERE IS NO FUEL FILTER. That thing in the tank is not really a fuel filter. It is part of the pump/pickup, and is to prevent chunks from getting into the pump. It does filter to a degree, but is not a fuel filter as such.

Why exactly would the haynes Repair manual clearly state that there is a fuel filter if there wasn't? Also why would there be so many brands of fuel filters for the year and liter size?

sbr711 is an unknown quantity at this point
There is indeed a fuel filter, and I have 1 out in the garage...

That sock seen above is just that, a particulate sock to keep chunks from being ingested into the fuel pump.. that plastic thing that pump slides into with that 1/2 inch long black rubber seal into is the fuel filter (surrounds fuel pump) and is all assembled into the pump module.

But you all know that you dont have to believe me as a certified Hyundai Gold Level tech with EQUUS & Hybrid certs also...
