I would be interested to know this as well, as my father-in-law seems to think this a trickier job that it should be; as other parts of the engine bay are in the way, making it not so straight forward.

Not a job for the light hearted.A lot has to be stripped out to gain access.Have a look at YouTube videos for similiar Kia and Hyundai models,not actually one for Ceed,but will give you the general idea of what is involved.

I have just carried out my first service of our new, to us, 2009 ceed. I did the fuel filter amongst other things... I have a few pics.



First you need to remove air filter box and pipe leading to turbo.



Then label and disconnect all fuel pipes and electrical connectors



Then undo the 4 nuts securing the housing to the bulkhead. Carefully remove the entire unit.



Then on the bench you can remove the filter from the black housing.



Once the new filter is screwed on, hand tight only, refit it in reverse.




Once fitted leave this pipe unconnected as this is where the fuel comes out when you prime the filter. Use the pump on top off the filter. Push this down and up until fuel comes out. Then reconnect the last pipe. And then give the pump a few more presses until it firms up.

Finally refit all the remaining parts. Air filter etc......

Hope this helps.....

No I didn't need to. But I did remove it and hoover it out then put it back....

It's located behind the glove box... It comes in two pieces. A small and large bit... Can't go wrong here.. Like changing an air filter..

That's what I heard, sorry to sound stupid but when you say behind the glove box, how do you get to it from inside the car or from under the bonnet?

Sorry I don't have pics at moment. But I can get some if you need.

Basically it's literally behind the glove box which you access from inside the car. The footwell.. There is two plastic round locking buttons on the side of the glove box. Once you turn and pull these out the glove box drops all the way to the floor.... Then you can clearly see the pollen filter housing in front of you....

If now one has posted any pics on here by tomorrow, I will do so....

Found this on the web. It shows, where the side screws are...
