How to tell whether a bumper is a new one

I had an accident with some scratches on the rear bumper of my 2013 Santa Fe. So, I brought the SUV to a repair shop who claimed that they changed the bumper. I later found out that the shop only patched up the bumper with a layer of glue and it was could be easiely removed by WD-40. When the bu8mper was removed, I saw the manufacture date of the bumper was July 2012. Is this the original bumper of my SUV? How could I confirm this?

Have your insurance company come to where your car is
& look it over & compare the repair to the work that the insurance
company wanted done.

Ask a lawyer how to proceed, would be next

I would guess the body shop cut corners or you didn't go to

Bumpers are in almost every case exchanged for a repaired one or if the damage is not to severely damaged it is repaired at the body shop. This keeps insurance rates down and the guarantee is the same.

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

SOURCE: need instructions on removing hyundai santa fe 01 fan belt ac

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.

SOURCE: How to remove rear brake rotors

THE REAR BRAKE ROTOR IS A LOOSE ROTOR AND SHOULD COME OFF EASILY. IF NOT, IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE ROTOR IS HELD BY RUST ONTO THE HUB OR THE BRAKE SHOES IS STILL EMBEDDED INTO THE ROTOR. REMOVE THE HANDBRAKE CABLE TO ENSURE THAT THE BRAKESHOES COLLAPSE AND TRY TO LOSEN IT AGAIN. IF SEASED ONTO THE HUB BY RUST, KNOCK THE ROTOR WITH A COPPER HAMMER TO BRAKE THE RUST WITH A RUST REMOVER.

SOURCE: I have a 2004 santa fe what kind of motor oil and

Use exactly what weight is listed in your owner's manual or on the oil fill cap. More than likely you will find it requires 5w20 weight. I personally use Pennzoil and have for over 30 years with not one internal engine problem. But any major brand will be good. Also very important is the filter. Use a quality filter such as Purolator, Wix, or Bosch and avoid cheap filters. I personally use Purolator Pure One filters. Change your oil and filter every 5,000 miles and your engine will give you great service. Also change the Air Filter every 30,000 miles as it is very important to keep it clean. Change your fuel filter, if changeable, every 50,000 miles. Some vehicles have permanent fuel filters.

How to replace rear door handle on 2008 hyundai santa fe


A special "push" tool is made to do this that can be had from any auto parts distributor. Just use it between the plastic and the back of the handle and push the clip out. Then use the same tool to pop the buttons holding the panel to the door, just stick it between the panel and door and pry inward. The buttons will stay on the panel.

What light is in the rear bumper of the Santa Fe 2005 and how do you turn it on?


The red and white lens? Depending on the model there may not be a light in it. It's held in with one phillips head screw. Remove the screw and pop the lens off. Some of them are equipped with lights that work, some just have a "dummy" lens to fill the hole in the bumper. It's cheaper for Hyundai to make one bumper for all Santa Fe models and wire the LX, SE models with reverse lights in them.

How do I replace fog lights on my 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe?


Look up into the bumper and see if you can access the fog light. The bulb should just twist out of the back. If not, the assembly should either pop forward or back to come out. I've heard though, that many santa fe's require the removal of the entire front bumper fascia just to get to the bulbs in which case you'd have to remove your headlights to get to the screws holding the bumper fascia on
