Question about 2002 Hyundai Accent
Most auto parts stores will change the bulb for you if you buy one.
If you must do it yourself...
Remove the circular cover behind the bulb on the back of the lens. It turns in clockwise to lock so turn it counter clockwise to remove it.
Then remove the electrical connector. No biggie, just wiggle it while you pull it off. They can be stubborn.
Then there is a wire clip that presses the bulb into the lens. That clip has a small screw on one side and a hook on the other that latches into the lens. Press the hook in and move it up or down (it varies by car) to remove it from the slot.
From there it should open like a door allowing you to take the old bulb out.
Put the new bulb in WITHOUT TOUCHING THE GLASS! If you touch it the oils on your fingers will turn to acids under the extreme heat of the bulb causing the bulb to fail again. By now you'll have figured out that you don't want to do this again any time soon.. so be careful.
Once secure (it only goes in one way so make sure it sits in there securely) close the wire latch and hook it in by pressing the hooked part inward and the opposit way that you took it out (up or down). Plug in the electrical connector (only goes on one way), and replace the cover.
If you haven't just gone to the parts store to have them do it by now then congratulations.

first thing i need to know is did the timing belt break?
second is are you sure you aligned the timing marks and after the belt tensioner was tight you rechecked to make sure the timing stayed where you had it.
next step would be a compression check to if a valve was bent whenchanging the belt
i have seen this happen and this engine is an interferance engine.

Was It Starting Before?
Who Changed It?
If The Belt Broke And The Belt Was Just Put Back On Without It Being Put In (TDC) Top Dead Center The Car Will Not Run. Warning! Trying To Start It Over And Over Will Destroy The Engine.The Engine Works By Being (TDC) Top Dead Center The Timing Controls When The Cylinders Come To The Top. The cylinders Are Controlled By The Timing So When The Spark Plugs Try To Ignite. The Cylinders Are Not In Position And Thus Will Not Create Combustion For The Engine To Run.

Go to an autozone parts store, or any parts store and they will assist you as long as you buy the bulbs from them. Autozone even has free tools to loan you.

once you pop the hood, there should be a cover behind the light housing that you twist to open the backing.. inside the housing will be a spring lever that secures the bulb down... unhook the spring and disconnect the harness connecting to the bulb...
