Question about 2005 Hyundai Elantra
Burned out low beam bulb on drivers side. Removed the headlight assembly mounting bolts but cannot get the unit to come out the front. Contrary to user manual, there appears to be something else securing the unit. (Once I get the assembly out the process looks easy.) The battery stops me from looking behind but I don't believe that removing it will resolve my problem for access. There is another small bolt deep behind the assembly that may or may not affect the removal of the assembly but I'm a little paranoid that if I removed it I may losen something else and cause problems. Some expert advice would be greatly appreciated. thank you, Glen

FIRST DISCONNECT THE LIGHT FROM THE POWER ON THE LAMP YOU ARE TRYING TO REPLACE. It is a plug type that will pull as the sides are pushed. NEXT, The light will have a WIRED brace holding it on. Look closely. Pushed the WIRED brace at an angle and wiggle it. After it comes off and hangs there like a latch, turn the receptacle of the actual light counter clockwise and it will come out. Replace bulb and do the same thing opposite of what I explained.

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly,
behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator
You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well
Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)
For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.
For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.
