Question about 2003 Hyundai Tiburon
How to access and re[place bulb
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.
