Question about 2003 Hyundai Tiburon
The headlights work on the passangers side but not on the drivers side & when i put the fuse in under the dash it blows the second its in. Any ideas where to start looking for the problem. Thanks
Unplug the drivers side headlamp. Install a fuse and see if it blows. If it doesn't replace the headlamp. If it does you will need to start tearing into the harness to find the shorted wire. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

First you'll want to pop the hood open to access the headlights. There will be two bolts on the top which go straight down above the headlight and another on the side closest to the middle of the car that is kind of hidden so you may have to kneel down to see it (So, if you are working on the right headlight the 3rd bolt is on the left and if you are working on the left headlight the 3rd bolt is on the right). As long as you only remove the three bolts that are in the mounts that are connected to the headlight you'll be fine. After you get them out, you have to play a little bit of a wiggle game with the headlight to actually get it out. I found it's best to try to get the left bolt mount out past the little black hard plastic flap in front of it. Don't worry, I always bend it at a 90 degree angle and it hasn't broke yet so don't be too worried to be rough with it. After that, you should be able to pull the opposite side out just enough to get your hand behind and unplug the two connections. Now that the headlight assembly is out just unscrew the caps to access the bulb. There is a metal prong you push down like a safety pin to unlock the bulbs. Then just move that out of the way and the bulbs pull right out with no effort. Just gently place the new bulbs in, flip over the metal clip and push it down to lock the bulb in place and screw the cap back on. To get the headlight back in just reverse the process. Get the outer side of the headlight back in (side farthest from center of vehicle), stick your hand behind it and plug the connections back in, then pull the hard plastic flap out to get the assembly all the way back into place and put the three bolts back in.Sorry this is so long but I figure as much detail as possible will ensure things get done without uncertainty.

The main fuses for the headlight will be under the hood in a box near the firewall or the fender. There are secondary fuses for the headlights under your dash inside the car

Pop the hood and you should see two dials (hex shaped plastic screws) on each of the headlight assemblies. One is for your high beams and one is for your low beams. You'll need to measure from the ground up to the center of your bulb and make that marking on the wall for each of your bulbs (so four marks). Then park about 30 feet away from the wall (make sure you're on a level surface that's level with the wall base. If the light says VOR, then the top of the brightest area of the light should line up with the mark. if it says VOL, then the top of the brightest area of the light should line up two inches below the mark.

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly,
behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator
You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well
Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)
For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.
For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.
