    I have the same problem, but on the passenger's side... Is it as hard as the other (drivers side)? I just might have to take my car to professionals... I have no place to do the job but outside ( winter in Finland...), or in a shopping center's parking hall :-(

Hi there
the solution is simple,
you only need to undo the screw on top of the side light/indicator. then facing the head light place a flat headed screw driver under the bottom lip of side light. the bottom of the lihgt is on a small push fit stud, use a sponge or cloth to protect your bumper paint work then just apply pressure gently to lever side light out towards you, It will come dont worry, you may then change your bulbs if you wish remove the whole light unit you will see the bottom bolt as soon as you release the side light. to replace just push back into place then replace screw. whole job takes about five minutes

hope this helps kevan hildred

    Thank you for this help Kevan. I have just replaced my side light, as you advised, no worries. All I would add is that the locating stud draws out to the front of the vehicle and not the side. However take note that there is a small stud that locates into the body at the side so do keep this one free when you lever the unit out. Another tip is to grease the locating stud before you reassemble, mine was a bit rusty.

Just changed mine same side as yours. Undo 3 10mm bolts around headlight plus screw in top of indicator lens. Then under wheel arch undo 4 10mm bolts and 1 under edge of bumper pull panel back use torch to look up under headlight and you will see another 10mm bolt that holds the light in remove this not easy will need 10mm ring spanner with bend, may have to undo horn and move around slightly to get headlight out then disconnect 3 wiring plugs and take headlight right out. change bulb and check all lights before putting back together. quite difficult job if your handy should be ok. if taken to hyundai main dealer they will charge you min of 1 hours labour. Hope this helps;

    I have done the driver side but not the passenger side. But whilst doing mine i did look at the other side and it looked the same.But when mine was all apart i looked to see if there was an easier way because it seemed like a lot of work for 1 bulb. Anyway i noticed if you undo the screw that holds in indicator / side light at the top and somehow prize the light unit at the bottom it may come out as it was a plastic gromit with a round headed bolt that pushes into place and locks (only way i can describe this) I didn,t want to try this in case i broke something then it would be a very expensive bulb. Hope this helps!

Be aware that with solution 1 the lense can become unglued from its housing. It has on mine even though I was very carefull. Could it be the cold weather? Now got to try to re-glue it. Still could not get the sidelight out & will have to go with solution 2!

How How do i change the headlight bulb on the drivers side of my 2007 Hyundai Entourage?


You have to take the black plastic top off under the hood on the front.....than you take the whole headlight out, I believe it's only two bolts...there is opening for each light and they are pretty simple to change.

How do you access the outside tail light to change the bulb on a 2008 Hyundai Sante Fe?


You can access the bulb by going to the rear of the car and removing the internal side panels at the opposite side of each tail light. You should see the covering and the socket for the light which you need to remove to gain access to the bulb.

I have Hyunday Terracan and don´t know how to losen the front position light to chang the bulb. Need help.


There is a single screw that hold the position light assembly. This screw is located near the corner of the headlamp, on top, very close to the fender metal. Unscrew (phillips head) it and pry out (to the front) the position light assembly. Then you can change the bulb. Put back in reverse order.

Low beam bulbs are out


The bulbs are held in with a wire clip, push down on the small loop
side of the clip. Whatever you do don't remove the small screw that
holds the clip. Remove the battery on the drivers side for easiest change.
