Question about 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe

2 Answers

I have a 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe and took it to the dealership for a regular suggested service. The service tech told me there was a leak in the transfer case. I took the car in to get the leak fixed (cost $675.00) and now the mechanic says there is another leak inside the shaft and I should replace the whole transfer case which costs $3,026.10. Does this sound right? Can't I buy a whole new engine for that much?

    I would plant marijuana plants at their houses and call the cops, these guys are on the rip, big time, even if you have a leak, you can buy a car for $3,000!!!! Tell them you want your money back and that you will find somebody else. A leak in the transfer case, big deal, you have a bad bearing or a bad seal or both, so, you get it out, take it apart, repair the bearing/ seal, put it back, in a modern shop with a lift, 8 hours max, even at $100 an hour, that is $800. Where do the come up with a new transfer case??/ Fix it!! I would go tho the manager at the dealer and see just how honest he is, when you find out he's a snake, make sure you tell him you will never do business there again and you will tell everybody you know, and you will call ripoff.com and report him. And you will put his name in your back window of your car, "Toms Hyundai is a rip!!" For $3000 you could put a V-8 in there and burn up the strip. I'll leave this here for another opinion.

If they knew what they were doing in the first place the internal issues will have been noticed.
Get your money back and go to a proper Hyundai dealer.
Write a formal complaint to Hyundai and I think your problem may get resolved.

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

Hey all,
I was able to get installation instructions for the cross bars from http://www.capitolhyundai.com and from http://dealerfit.com.  Thanks much to these folks for providing a pdf of these instructions free of charge!
Below is the text from the instruction set that worked best for me.  The other instruction set was nearly identical but it had an alternate Step 2 which involved using a small plastic pry bar.  I added that alternate Step below in the instruction step.  Hopefully I'm able to insert the image of each instruction set so that the Figures are visible.  Its actually not that easy getting the rear rail covers off and its pretty easy to crack them.  I'd recommend gently rocking the covers for a couple minutes in order to loosen them up.  Once you get the covers off, the rest of the install is a breeze and can be done in 2 minutes.  If you have questions, go ahead and contact me.  I also took several photos of my install and that might be helpul.  Cheers!

SANTA FE 2008 PIN U8210-28000 Cross Bar Assembly Installation Procedures
Kit Contents: • (2) Cross Bar Assemblies Required Tools: • Flat Head Screwdriver
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Carefully unscrew and remove radio antenna. 2. Grasp the rear rail covers with both hands. Squeeze and pull up & inwards (toward the center of the vehicle) to remove covers. Take care not to break off the tabs by lifting the rear section of the cover first (Figure 1). Be careful not to scratch, damage or dent any painted surfaces. DO NOT PRY AGAINST THE VEHICLE BODY, THIS CAN CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE VEHICLE. 2. - Alternate Method - Locate notch in rear of each cover to insert plastic pry bar.  Remove cover by prying up (with tool) and lifting rear at 45 degree angle (Fig 1). Be careful not to scratch, damage or dent any painted surfaces. DO NOT PRY AGAINST THE VEHICLE BODY, THIS CAN CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE VEHICLE. 3. Check assembly clips for damage and dislocation. Replace if necessary. 4. Open the lever on one side of front/rear cross bar. Gently set the cross bar, with the arrows facing forward, into the channel of the side rails (Figure 2). Guide both sides into the track. 5. To adjust cross bars, open lever and place cross bars in desired location. Close lever (Figure 3). Try to move bars forward/back until they lock into place. 6. Reinstall rear covers by holding cover at a 45 degree angle and inserting the front tab into the rear of the roof rack. After aligning, snap cover in place (Figure 4). Be sure that the rubber lip does not interfere with the covers, and that the covers are fully seated. 7. Reinstall the radio antenna. Note: To remove the cross bars, remove the antenna, remove the covers, open lever of cross bar and slide to end of rail. Hold down locking fingers (on both RH/LH rear rail supports) with a flat head screwdriver (Figure 5). This will allow removal of cross bars from the rails.

SOURCE: PROGRAM KEYFOB FOR HYUNDAI SANTA FE

This is from the factory service manual of your car:
There is no onboard programming procedure for this vehicle. This vehicle requires special equipment be connected to the vehicle to program the keyless remote. Translation you need the dealer to do this.

The vehicle will run fine for a while until that cat goes out all the way, the only thing that might get you away cheaper than $1,000 is a wrecking yard cat, but then you still take risks. If the cat is bad its bad nothing to do but replace it.

How do I reprogram the key fob on my 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe without having to pay the fee at the dealership?


Well, you basically have only 3 choices:
1. Pay the fee at the dealership
2. Purchase the high-dollar equipment that is required to perform the programming procedure
3. Forget about adding another key fob to tor vehicle.
