    You could had unplugged the fuel pump relay and ran the engine until the excess fuel in the lines was spent.

    Otherwise great video

    What I love about my 2003 kia, the assembly is metal (the filter and strainer housing is plastic though), the assembly is directly held in by screws and this same operation takes about 15 minutes. What I wish I knew before the operation; the new strainer didn't come with a new o-ring into the filter and a rubber block on the bottom, but even though they were sitting in fuel for 16 years, those were luckily in great reusable condition. Where's your filter located? Mine was on that assembly.

      Cause they are cheap, why spend a fortune on an expensive car, they are all for the same purpose. having an expensive car its stupid, you have to fix and change stuff too at some point.

      Nothing wrong with Hyundai. Great car for the price. I'm from Australia mate, when American cars have the quality of the Japanese, Korean & Australian cars you will have a valid argument. People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones !

    You should have first relieved the pressure on the fuel line by disconnecting the fuel pump electric line and starting the engine until it stalls out. That way you would not have to deal with all that spilled fuel.

    Couldn't help but agree with the hassle of putting back the fuel pump!

    Anyway, this video deserves more views-easy-to-follow intsructions and well-presented demonstration. Keep it up, Brad and Doug!
