Question about 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe
I already posted a more pressing comment about the A/C so if anyone reading this knows anything about A/C's in this car please read that question first! This problem is minimal compared to the A/C problem. You can control the passenger side window from the drivers side (control it up and down). As far as controlling the passenger side window from the passenger side it's a different story I can only roll the window up using the control on my side of the car (not down...which sucks when you have NO A/C). Just wondering if this is a quick fix or if it's going to cost a lot of money to fix then I'll just live with it. Then I have a problem with our hydraulics with our back lift hatch....the hydraulics stopped working...we use a metal pole to support the weight of the back hatch if we need both hands free...it's an inconvenience and it's embarrassing. So again anyone know how to fix it easy and relatively cheap that'd be awesome. One more thing, my husband and I fight about this constantly because OBVIOUSLY there are more pressing matters wrong with our car than the timing belt but I really feel like we should replace it as soon as we have the money to. We are at 136,000 miles. Any and all input is greatly appreciated. Just don't forget to answer my question about my A/C (it's a separate question) because that is obviously most important! Please and Thank You! Sincerely, Ashley
For the passenger window problem, it sounds like the pass. switch is the problem. A used one would be a quick, inexpensive fix.
For the back hatch: are they gas charged struts that are supposed to hold it up? With heavy doors, the struts wear out over time. You can buy inexpensive aftermarket struts for most applications, but if they are dealer only supports that fit, expect the cost to be considerably more.
I would agree with you about the timing belt. It is beyond the recommended time for change. Some manufacturers stipulate as little as 60,000 mile intervals, check with Hyundai or your owner's manual for your recommended time when to change it. So, yes, as soon as you have the money is good.
Nothing to add about the AC. I only know how to remove and take them apart and throw them away-I have no use for AC in Montana. For short summers, open windows work fine.

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.

you have to remove the AC panel from the back side... the virtical console pops out and you can disconnect it (wire harness connectors) to get to it.
