There should be a few hand screws on the back of the light behind the carpet

    After you remove the hand screws which will be plastic or small metal butterfly style. The entire assembly should just pull right out. If it doesn't come completely out, be cautious of clips or tabs that are holding it on. They will be easily removable, but don't break them. Once its out, take the new assembly, and plug the lights in the way they are set up in the old assembly. They will twist off if you grab them toward the assembly. Should be pretty self explanitory. Thanks.

    This is the other type of assembly. There are 2 or 3. You will have to figure out which one applies to your vehicle.

    open the hatch door, thus exposing the screws that hold the light lens assembly. these screws are two(2) hex type screws. Next with the screws off then you need to pull gently the lens assembly off. I had to use a flat needle nose plier to place it under the assembly to pry it off the car. Careful not to force it because the lens assembly also is held to the chasy of the car by a sort of a plastic pin that goes into a hole of the chasis. Just slowly place the needle nose pliers under the lens while pulling gently the lens in a straight line motion, you will feel it give way. placing the assembly back on is opposite of taking it off

How do I replace the tail light assembly on a 2003 hyundai santa fe?


You'llhave to raise the rear compartment door fully. Next locat the tailight you wish to replace or same if you are replacing one of the tailigt bulbs. This would include the stop bulb or turn signals etc.
Next there is a black plastice side panel located between the lamp assembly (the entire plastic housing) and the inner portion of the rear compartment door. There you'll see two phillips head screws which you must remove. This releases the entire assembly.
You then next gently give it a small tug toward the left (if a left side assembly) or to the right if other wise. What happens there is that there is a stud that's held pretty snuggly by a modled ring in the body assembly. Don't twist the lamp assembly up or down unless you want to break this off but give it a slight pull outward. Then you're done. The entire assembly will be released and you'll be home free for changing any of the bulbs or even replacing the entire assembly. W/o breaking it of course.

Installation instructions 2005 hyundai santa fe tail light


Hi

Open rear hatch,
locate 3 philips screws on the right side of lamp,
note that the lamp assembly is held into the fender side by a plastic tab( hidden ). You have to stand at the rear fender side, facing the lamp and pull the lamp toward you carefully.

Thanks for using FixYa.
