Yes. Your Local Auto Parts Store should Carry these as Direct Replacements. If Not, Sears Carries them.

SOURCE: I have 2002 Santa Fe Hyundai. One of the rear

Should be just snap on ands of if you break one you should be able to pick it up at any auto parts store. First remove the door handle and if necessary the electric window switch and snap the panel off. Next you will need a flash light and a pair of needle nosed pliers because unless you have small hands you won't be able to reach it. Owe yeah, be prepared to tear through the plastic behind the panel to access the handle. You may also try to pull ut off from a corner to see if you can remove it without destroying iy.

SOURCE: how to remove door panel from hyundai santa fe

A door panel removal tool works best, but if you have a stiff putty knife about 4" long and 1 1/4" wide it will work if you are careful. Start at the bottom of the panel and work your way around. Insert the blade all the way in between the panel and the door with the edge of the blade right next to the plastic fastener. Then pull the tool handle away from the door slowly. It will take a bit of pressure to get the first one or two clips to release.

The other steps I follow to remove this panel are as follows:

1. Remove the screw in the trim behind the door handle and then remove the trim piece.

2. Remove the door release cable from the handle.

3. Remove the door handle mounting bolts and then remove the handle.

4. Remove the three door panel mounting screws: 2 on the back edge of the panel and 1 in the door pull cup.

5. Separate the panel edges from the door. (see above) Lift the panel up starting with the back edge first to free the top lip of the panel from the door.

6. Disconnect the electrical connectors from the switches and light. (You may need a very small flat blade screw driver to depress the locking tabs on the switch connectors.)

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Buy 2002 Santa Fe Nov 16, couldn't unlock doors to

i had a problem not unlike this in my santa fe 1.9td uk spec.
my car had been sitting for a few months and when i returned to drive it again the same problem came to light.
i also rep[lsaced the key fob.
it could be one of two things.
firstly the systen might neen re-set. if you disconnect the battery for 2 hours then attach ti again it might work.
if this fails it might be the actuator in one of the doors. if it is faulty then it only semi closes the lock, but it then thinks that has to lock again. and locks the door.
hope this helps.

Do the doors lock normally when using the manual switch on the dirver's door panel? If so, the problem is in the ETACS module. Here's the wiring diagram:
