Get in the trunk, take loose the screws, lift the lens holder, change the bulb. Unfortunately, it's not as easy as it sounds. The hole for the lamp position is offset about 4-5 inches. You cannot get to the bulb to remove it without taking loose the lens holder. You have to remove 2 screws to do that, one of which is hidden by a piece of foam tape.
Also it is impossible to remove the lens holder without slipping a finger underneath to turn the bulb holder. I had to cut off a portion of the bulb holder to slip the lens back in. I left the screws out, as it is impossible to put them back after removal. No wonder the dealer wants $50 to change the bulb-it took me about 45 minutes.

    This is a very difficlut light to replace. I just did it and it took about 45 minutes also.

    All the above is correct but I was able to replace the two screws after changing the bulb. You will need someone to hold down the lens holder while you put the screws in. You will need a magnetic screw driver that will hold the screw in place while you try to put it in the hole.

    I did break part of the bulb holder while trying to pull the lens holder out to get to the bulb. It looks like the only way to do it without breaking the bulb holder is to try to twist the bulb holder while it is pulled up with about 1/2" area to work with.

Abs and tcs lights on what do they stand for?


ABS stands for anti lock brake system.
TCS stands for traction control system.

I recommend having your abs system diagnosed for faulty sensors, control module, etc. With the abs light on the traction control system is designed to disable because it utilizes the abs system to automatically help control your vehicle in loss of traction situations.

I would agree that it's the alternator. However, before you SPEND money, VERIFY that it's the alternator. Take/tow the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership), pay the diagnostic fee. They will tell you EXACTLY what the problem is and what's needed to fix it (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.). Afterward, you can fix it yourself.

Bulb replacement in hyndai sonata high mounted rear stoplight


Research revealed no available illustration of procedure. If memory serves, there are two 'access' plates on either side of the lamp assy (popped out with small screwdriver) and two phillps screws retaining the assy in place. Remove the access plates (plastic) and the screws behind them.. access is gained.
