How do you fix a 2008 HYUNDAI SONATA front head light?


The halogen headlight is basically a bulb that is replaced from behind the headlight assembly inside the hood. Hyundai has a cover that keeps moisture and debris out. To remove it, simply twist the cover counter clockwise. Once removed, you should be a locking "bracket" that will resemble a small wire handle. This locks the bulb into place. The handle can be released by "squeezing" it together (on some models, the handle is kept in place by a notch) and pulling up. Once released, you will be able to remove the plug and old halogen bulb.
Once the bulb is replaced, reverse the instructions to re-assemble. Best of luck and thank you for using Fixya! Greg

I startup engine, then, turned headlights. The headlights had been on about 2 seconds, then, both headlights were suddenly off. High beam lights are ok. Today, I went to AutoZone and changed new fuse (15a)...


Maybe the low beam of both headlights blew up. Headlight bulbs have 2 coils, 1 for high beam and 1 for low beam. Just like a regular light bulb, when the coil breaks the light doesn't work. But the high beams are still ok. If you've never changed em, 8 years come around its probably around time to replace them. If you can, see if you can remove the bulbs. It's pretty easy, for most cars its just locate where the lights are located under the hood, then turn the headlight bulb housing counter clockwise and should pull out. inspect it for any broken coils. if you need to replace both, get the part number or take it to a parts store and ask an employee for help. If you reinstall it yourself, be sure not to let your fingers touch the new bulb. if you do, clean it with rubbing alcohol before you put it back in the housing.

Low beambulb replacement


On the back side of the headlamp assembly, there is a cap (screws on and off). remove this cap and there is a connector (2 pin) connected to the bulb - remove it. Then there's a spring retainer holding the bulb in place -- remove it from its latch and you can remove the bulb. Install new bulb and reinstall the retainer and connector and cap.

2001 Hyundai Sonata headlights reversed


First thing to do is confirm that the low beams are actually on when they are supposed to be, and the same for the high. If they are, it is possible that some time in the past an owner simply reversed the bulb assemblies when they removed them to do a bulb replacement. My son's 2001 Sonata uses the same bulb for both high and low beams. It is possible to put them back reversed if you take them both out at the same time. Just try removing the upper bulb assembly and installing it the lower position and put the one that was in the lower position in the upper. If what you say is true, just reversing the bulbs assemblies should solve your problem providing your sonata model is the same as my son's.
