Hey @ImStricken Were you able to make the video? I'm planning on doing this soon. I'd like to watch the video before doing it. I change the ATF on my cars all the time, but for some reason it's more cumbersome on the Hyundais.

You have the AWD Santa Fe, right? The 2WD procedure is different. We'll have to make a DIY video for that too.

I have 2013 AWD Santa Fe with the 3.3 and there is a down pipe in the way of the fill bolt. Has anyone successfully done this job with this configuration?

I attempted to remove that portion of the exhaust but once unbolted there doesn't seem to be clearance to pull it past the subframe.
