Question about 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe
The above statement is GREAT!!! The wheel-well piece folds down across the area you need to be in. There are 2 screws to undo this part. Push it back and there is a cap that unscrews which holds the wires and socket he is talking about. Unscrew the cap, unscrew the wire and housing. The bulb comes out. You pull the wire harness off and install the new bulb. It has a triangular push-in and it has to go just right so take note of how it comes out. Also, being a halogen light bulb, do not touch the bulb with your hands - the oils will make it explode.

its your serpentine belt (thats what its called) and you will need a 3/8 ratchet and then find the belt tensioner. The tensioner has a spot where you need to put the ratchet into and pull or push depending on whatever way and that will releive the pressure off the belt so you can take it off.

I have a 2.7L v6 in my 2001 Santa Fe. It took approximately 3 hours to change the belt. One of the things you will have to do if you have the v6 is to support the engine and take off the passenger side motor mount to change the belt. Make sure you get the timing marks aligned because this is a zero tolerance engine. If you don't or if the belt breaks while the engine is running you will damage pistons and valves.

On the 2.7 engine it is located beside the starter. You will have to remove the starters heat shield to gain excess to the crank sensor.

You should find another dealer. Hyundai recommends replacing the belt every 60,000 miles and this dealer knows this. No reason at all to replace it at 42,093 miles. Remember that this is an interference engine so if the belt breaks serious engine damage will occur. Do not neglect this service at 60,000 miles.
