2.2 diesel Santa Fé OIL FILTER CARTRIDGE

I need to know where the oil filter body is so I can change the cartridge.
Can anybody tell me ? :confused:

Hi Guys
Somebody must know where to find the oil filter on one of these ! Surely it must be in an easily accessible position, but I cant find it !! Anybody know ? Come on guys, please.

Have a look underneath at the engine undertray - it may have opening(s) possibly with removeable covers to give access to the sump drain and the filter itself - it may be more convenient to remove the engine undertray to do the job and then refit it afterwards.

The 2006-2009 Santa Fe used a 2.2 CRTD diesel, totally unrelated to the later 2010-on 2.2 CRDi R-series engine - the 2.2 CRTD is related to the earlier 2001-2006 2.0 TD, originally a VM Motori engine but developed/modified/built under licence by Hyundai.

Thanks RT ,
I have a 2007 2.2
If I can get it jacked up enough to possibly get underneath it and have look, and remove the undertray, I will see if its there. I take it you are not entirely sure though, by what I can read from your post, but many thanks RT.

Hi RT
Just wanted to state that it doesnt seem to be a "spin-off" type of filter - the replaceable part is a cartridge - part no. 26320 27401 .

If your vehicle is Right hand driving, see underneath of your brake oil reservoir (peep on top). you will see oil filter Assy vertically fitted to the engine.

Ahhh thanks maduabey , thats wonderful. It turns out its not a cartridge (that the local Hyundai dealers - well the national one on Iceland :) ) but a spin-off filter. Probably going to be a pain getting the old one off because its far down , below cables and pipes etc. Hyundai could have designed it better in this respect.
Many thanks for your replies guys and maduabey gets a point for the correct answer :)
Cheers
Jerry

Maduabey etc. I got it wrong - sorry to the Hyundai dealers- they put me right on the filter- it is indeed a cartridge - what I mistook for a spin-off filter was the cover for the cartridge. I should "spin off" the cover, and remove the used cartridge-and replace with a new one.

Hi all,
To everybody with a 2.2 diesel Santa Fé - the tool for removing the oil filter cartridge cap
, located rather badly, down , in front of the passenger on a left hand drive car - is 80 mm with 15 flats. The oil quantity you will need is 5.9 liters.

Be aware that there are 2 unrelated, very different 2.2 diesels - the 2006-2009 which has origins in a VM Motori diesel - and the 2010-on R-series which is a Hyundai in-house design with no common parts with the earlier engine despite the same nominal capacity.

According to my knowledge, Santa fe 2.2 diesel models upto 2009 all they all take the metal canister screw-on filter. Not cartridge type, not sure weather its possible to swap with cartridge. Better check your original oil filter type.

Hi maduabey - this is the first time I have changed the oil filter myself - it has previously been done by mechanics approved by Hyundai Iceland, and Hyundai mechanics themselves.
So, its a mystery why the information you have doesnt include the cartridge type !

In the repair manual it is said that on the "FOR EUROPE LHD ONLY" there is an oil filter cartridge what you can replace and "FOR THE REST AREA EXCEPT EUROPE - LHD :" it is a metal canister screw type filter.

In my opinion it is much nicer to change the cartridge type filter because then you can avoid spillage of oil :)

The difference may be due to the use of extended OCI in Europe which needs a filter with increased size.

Does the repair manual state what EUROPE RHD uses - ie UK, Ireland and Malta ?

No. No other info mentioned on the manual. Only this:
"NOTE! There are two kinds of oil filters. One is for Eurpe LHD and the orther is for the rest area except Eurpe LHD (Left Hand Drive).

Hi Jerry, my wife and I just returned from Iceland back in September, what a beautiful country ! We rented a Mazda CX-5 Diesel , 6 spd manual. 2.2L , I think. Had a great time driving the roads of your country. Cheers to you and we took many beautiful photos. Highly recommend a trip to Iceland.
