Re: fog light replacement
You can probably lean under the bumper and locate the back side of the fog lamps - there are probable two pieces of "wire" that are "hooked" behind the frame for the lamps - these wires are to be pushed towards the lamps and the wire holders will fall way from the lamp case. The light will come out and then be unplugged - be sure to use a clean cloth to install the new ones and not to touch them with your hand as the oil will cause them to burn out prematurely. The install is the reverse of the removal...Not all are done this way, some are screwed in from the fron or back, and the entire asssembly come out and then comes apart.., but just use a little common sense and remember not to force anything - you should be able to get them out...good luck...

This bulb can be replaced without removing the washer fluid reservoir. There are 3 screws that go through the bottom edge of the bumper cover into the right inner fender guard. Remove these screws and pull the inner fender down to gain access to the back side of the fog lamp and remove the bulb.

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 ?
I just replaced the fog light bulb on my 2008 Azera. I went under the car and removed two screws from the protective shield. I pulled down the shield and reached up and turned the fog light socket and pulled it out of the housing, remembering which side the wires were on and removed the old bulb (Don't touch the new bulb with your hand) and replaced it with the new bulb. The job took less then 15 minutes
