Are you replacing the complete strut assembly with the coil spring and strut mount already attached? Because if not, you'll need a coil spring compressor.

Did you use a aftermarket O2 sensor or a genuine Hyundai one? If it's an aftermarket one it may be bad or not as good as the OEM one. See here for more details and other potential causes: P0133

SOURCE: P0139 code for a 2003 hyundai elantra. What is this code?

P0139 HO2S Circuit Slow Response (Bank 1 / Sensor 2). This is the downstream sensor (after the catalytic converter). Odds are the sensor is going bad. Check connections/ connector to this sensor. If you don't find any problem/trouble with this connector, replace the O2 sensor.

SOURCE: 2003 hyundai elantra gls front wheel stud broke

grab a large punch and hammer and knock out the old broken one. Push the new one in and re tighten. This will pull it into place and because it has splines it should not spin while doing so.

Of course this is only the cartridge, you have to transfer the spring, and the top mount of the existing strut. You need a pair of coil spring compressor to do the job. The basic procedure to replace a strut is:
Remove the top nuts that secure the strut assembly to the frame mount inside the engine compartment. Do not remove the center nut.
Mark the lower strut mounting location on the hub for installation reference. The alignment will be close if the new strut is installed in the same position.
Remove the bolts that hold the strut assembly to the hub.
Remove the strut assembly from the vehicle.
Mark the top mount for installation reference. Using a side mounted spring compressor, compress the spring and remove the top nut and retaining washer. Pull strut assembly out from the bottom of spring.
Slide the new strut assembly up into the spring and reposition the top mount onto the spring in the same position that it was removed. Install the retaining washer and top nut.
Tighten the top nut to the manufacturer's specifications and carefully remove the spring compressor.
Place the strut assembly back into the vehicle.

Struts fail after car put on lift for tires at Sears


This is a known problem with the REAR struts, but not the front. This repair under warranty will have to be decided by the DPSM (District Parts Service Manager) serving that dealership. Good Luck.

Rear suspension froze up. Trying to find a diagram of the suspension


the old elantras and accents have problems with the struts siezing up; especially if the vehicle has been lifted/jacked recently.

i see at least a few elantras/accents at the shop every week with locked up struts, its very very common. i am a hyundai tech, so trust me i see this a lot.
to replace the struts you will need a spring compressor and common hand tools.

check the front struts as well, they all tend to go around the same time, push down on one corner of the car at a time, if the car does not come back up after you release pressure, the strut has siezed/locked up.

DO NOT attempt to replace the struts if you dont have a spring compressor...that spring can really mess your day up if you dont properly compress it before removing that top nut.

Locked Strut on 2003 Hyundai Elantra


The E-brake is stuck on. Rock it back and forth from Drive to Reverse and it should free up. You really should get the brakes checked too.
