Is there a "window" on the 2003 Hyundai elantra where you can see the condition of the timing belt?

The top portion of the timing belt cover is removable so you can inspect the belt. You should be able to remove 2 or 4 10mm head bolts ant take the top of the cover off.

Most belt manufacturers recommend 60,000 miles, the car companies use that for the guide line, Of course a lot of belts will go 200,000 miles, but if they snap, your engine goes with it. So it is best to changes it now and then. Check out your setup there, you will probably be changing the belt tensioner and the water pump at the same time while you are in there. Not sure about your car, Check it out. Hope this helps.

Is it necessary to change the timing belt in a 2004 Elantra VE with 65000 miles (105500 Km)? No problems with it, just mechanic says it's time.

60,000 miles is the typical recommended interval for timing belt replacement. The belt can become worn and skip a tooth or even break. In that event, the pistons can collide with the valves and cause a considerable (and expensive) amount of damage. Changing the timing belt at recommended intervals is good insurance to protect against valvetrain and piston damage due to belt failure.

Timing Belt for 05 Hyundai Elantra

unless your well clued up with engines i wouldn't try changing timing belt yourself get somebody experienced to do this because if you don't time engine up properly you could cause serious damage by bending valves.
