Question about 2000 Hyundai Sonata
you need a philips screwdriver and a flashlight, and a telescoping magnet is recommended.
the best way to do this would be to empty your trunk, and lay in the trunk on your back with your legs hanging out and your flashlight pointed up at your work.
inside the trunk directly under the stoplamp you should see a connector, disconnect that and you should see a philips screw. remove the screw.
this part is a little tricky, shine the light up and to the left so that you can see the fastener that holds the bulb into the lamp. take your screwdriver, and place the tip on the flat part that sticks off of the bulb socket and press, so that you can turn it. once the socket is released, remove the bulb socket & bulb with its wire completely.
next, about 2-3 inches to the left of the rectangle where you removed the bulb & socket you should see a hole that is covered with a black foam. remove the foam from the hole, look straight up and you will see another philips screw. remove it, i recommend using a magnet to pull it from its hole after you've loosened it almost all the way, but whatever you do, do NOT do NOT drop that screw. it is almost impossible to retrieve and if you dont, it will rattle.
once you have both screws removed, get out of the trunk and go into the backseat and lift the 3rd brakelamp assembly off of the package tray; it may need a little negotiation, but be patient, it will come out.
once you have the stoplamp assembly out of the car, take the bulb socket, it should have a long flat tip at the bottom. take a pair of dikes and cut that tip completely off. replace the bulb, and install the bulb & socket into the lamp assembly, and re-install the lamp from inside the car, slowly and carefully slding it back into place. (hint, the more of the flat tip that you cut off, the easier it will slide into place).
once the lamp is back in place, hook up the connector, and re-install the screws, and you're done.

The sensor is located on the left hand rear side of the block (near the bell housing). It is held in place by a 10mm bolt. It's to the right of the exhaust manifold (LH - radiator side) on the V6. Once you purchase the new sensor you'll be able to identify it on the engine. The connector to this sensor is located in the illustration.
A word to the wise... replace the O2 snsr as well.

Disconnect the battery.remove the front tires.disconnect the lower control arms from the hubs.Remove the axle nuts.Swing away the hub until it clears the end of the drive axle spline.Keep it to the side.Remove the drive axles. remove the starter.remove the torque converter bolts on the flywheel.disconnect the gear linkage and all electrical connectors.disconnect the transmission cooler lines. undo the transmission mounts. use a transmission jack to lower the transmission.Installation is the reverse of the above.Be sure to torque all bolts and nuts to spec,pre load the mounts and replace the cotter pins with new ones.it should take about 5 hours to re and re the transmission.
