replace the bulb...??? This requires you remove the rear package deck (to access the bulb & socket). to do this, remove the seat bottom (two bolts hold the rear seat bottom to the chassis, then remove the bolts which hold the shoulder cushions (LH & RH - 12mm bolts) then remove the cosmetic molding around the trunk access (7 to 8 screws) then remove the "C" pillar covers (SRS curtain airbag LH & RH) to access the rear deck package & access the third brake lamp bulb. replace it, then reassemble.

SOURCE: Antifreeze for a 2003 Hyundai Accent

hi as this vehicle takes 6.5ltrs of liquid in the cooling system ( 1.6 16v based on ) as you did not give the engine size, but, 3.5ltrs of coolant is needed as it should be 50/50 depending on where you are and the temperature it has to deal with, warmer countries only need 30/70 That's 30 coolant to 70 water, but, if you are in a colder country it would be 80/20 that's 80 coolant to 20 water...and any standard coolant is ok no need for a specific one hope this helps please vote thanks

The hatchback Accent has two windshield wipers--one on the front and one on the hatchback so the pump can run to pump fluid to them each separately. You need a specific pump for that.

How to replace the third brake light (hatch) on a 2005 hyundai accent. I took off the 4 screw on the the plastic cover and it still won't come off. Tried taking off cove of back hatch but don't want to...


Above the third brake light is a small panel, remove this panel using small screwdriver.
1. You'll see four (4) bolts, remove the three bolts that are painted black, do not remove the center bolt holding the plastic molding, this is for the door molding, and has nothing to do with the light.
2. Once those three bolts are out, you'll see two more small screws, remove them and you'll have access to the third brake light bulb.

Be careful when pulling out the bulb, my bulb broke, and I'm still trying to get pieces out! - Good luck.

Need to replace both brake lights


Hi, The 2007 Hyundai Accent is under a recall for the brake light switch since it has a tendency to fail. The brake light switch is high up on the brake pedal and it has a plunger on it. The plunger releases when you step on the brake pedal and retracts when you release the pedal. Recall Information can be found at: http://www.internetautoguide.com/10-12-2007-33-267/2007-hyundai-accent-recalls.html

Please remember to rate this solution. Thanks and Good Luck!

How do you replace the third brake light bulb on a 2004 Hyundai Accent 2dr hatchback?


It's not impossible people! You will however need more than just a screwdriver.
This is for a 2004 Hyundai Accent 3 door (i.e. Hatchback)
Open the rear door to get to the stop light assembly. Directly under (or above now that the door is open and it is upside down) the light case is a small rectangular panel that you can snap out using a flathead screwdriver.
Once removed you should see 4 hex bolts. Remove these (a ratchet is the easiest way to go) and you should be able to pull the light case free of its mount. NOTE: You will notice two pegs or tabs helping to keep the case in place, a bit a wiggling may be needed to free them.
Once it is hanging free, you will need to remove the 6 screws on the bottom holding the case together. With these removed the back should come off and you can get to the bulb.
The replacement bulb I purchased was a Sylvania Long Life number 921. Pull the old bulb out (it may need some force/wiggling but be careful not to break it), and slide the new bulb into place. I would recommend checking that the new bulb is functioning at this point, while everything is still disassembled.
If everything is working... then replace the bottom cover, replace the 6 screws, slide the whole case back into place, replace the 4 bolts, and finally snap the panel cover back into place.
This whole process should take no longer than 20 minutes.
Hope this helps... Cheers!
