Question about 2016 Hyundai Elantra GT
You are presumably referring to the piston connecting rod big end bearing caps?
It would be helpful if your question was more specific especially regarding the problem you are having.
Generally, cleanliness is important, observing the pairing of each rod and cap (they are all slightly different) and fitting each cap the correct way around.
Fit the bearing shells to the rods and caps and having replaced the bolts or studs and nuts according to the repair manual, oil the bearing surfaces, fit the cap and tighten the fasteners to the correct torque.

Hello capybluebloo: The torque specs are as follows. Step one tighten to 10-12 ft.lbs. Step two is to tighten an additional 60-65 degrease. I checked two different shop programs and they both say the same. I hope you have access to a degree meter as the degree is very important. Please leave a rating as to quality of your reply as it does help. Should you need more help just ask. Thank You for using FixYa. Roger

Torque in two to three stages.
Connecting rods are 24-26 lb.ft.
Main bearing caps are 41-44 lb.ft.
Hope this helps,Chuck

With the car on ground, break loose the drive-axle nut, and the wheel nuts , than jack up the car, support it properly, remove the wheel ,remove the axle-nut.
Remove the brake caliper assembly-- support it properly.
Remove the two bolts that hold the hub bracket to the Macpherson strut assemble, remove the lower arm ball joint and remove the steering tie- rod ball-joint attached to the hub bracket. That's it.Slide off the hub /with the bracket off the drive-shaft.
Follow steps backwards to assemble back.
