Question about Hyundai Cars & Trucks
Left turn signal on 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe began blinking rapidly. Bulb was replaced and all appeared to be well for a day and then problem returned. Dealership advised there is actually an issue with the socket and will cost $600 as the recommended fix is to replace the entire headlight piece. This seems excessive for such a small problem. Any advice much appreciated. Thanks so much.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: change turn signal bulb 02 S60
ok this is what you do,unplug the two vaccum hoses at the back of the air filter box, pull up the air filter box,dont worry it wont break,give it a quick tug upwards on the four corners,now you can get enough room to change the directionals.NOTE: changing bulbs would not solve your problem because after a couple of weeks or so you will get that turn signal warning again,your best bet is to change the turn signal socket (its about $15.00) at the dealer.,you get the new socket and bulb all in one,do both sides if you can afford it because after a couple months the other side also goes.

hi have not had pleasure of this on santa fe yet? but will try to help dependant of which side o/s or n/s ? i would first remove the screws holding the front of the under engine plastic cover/shield and drop down sufficient to gain view/access? to the rear of fog lamp then if a cover is on? try turning anti clock to remove? or if rubber cover pull off? then the bulb and clip should be visible? unplug the wire from bulb then the spring clip holding bulb in place normally just sring the 2x top ends together and swing down/clear to remove bulb? refit new bulb correctly! pay attention to position old bulb positioned? then clip securely and re connect wire at this stage it would be best to ensure bulb works ?? before you re assemble all else? wish you luck and hope this helps with your problem ?

If new bulbs don't work, it is probably the harness that holds the bulb. I had to replace both on my car after fighting with the problem for over a year and not knowing.
