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.

Good luck!

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.
later paul

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.

Why 2009 Hyundai accent brake lights on with headlights, off without?


If all the brake lights come on ( including high mount ) with the headlights there is most likely a short somewhere. Have any of the park/brake light bulbs been changed recently. If so a bulb may be installed incorrectly or the wrong bulb application used.

How do I change headlights?


The halogen headlight is basically a bulb that is replaced from behind the headlight assembly inside the hood. Hyundai has a cover that keeps moisture and debris out. To remove it, simply twist the cover counter clockwise. Once removed, you should be a locking "bracket" that will resemble a small wire handle. This locks the bulb into place. The handle can be released by "squeezing" it together (on some models, the handle is kept in place by a notch) and pulling up. Once released, you will be able to remove the plug and old halogen bulb.
Once the bulb is replaced, reverse the instructions to re-assemble. Best of luck and thank you for using Fixya! Greg

How do I get into the headlight to change the main bulb which has gone?


Here is the only literature I could find to help you. It is located in the Hyundai Accent Owners Manual under "Do It Yourself Maintenance" The shop manual doesn't even list the headlamp bulb, let alone tell you how to change it. Apparently, it is so simple to change, that they did not feel the need to explain it much.

How do I replace headlamp bulb?


Some imports require the entire light assembly to be removed in order to replace headlamps. Look to see if there are angled rods on the back side of the light assembly. If so, see if the can be pulled straight up towards the hood of the car. When they are released the headlight will be able to come forward. Good luck. Hope this helps.
