How to change head lights of hyundai 1.3i
OK> you may or may not want to disconnect the battery and take it out to give yourself more room. Once you have done this a time or two you will find that you can do it without taking the battery out. When you open up the hood and you are facing the car looking into the engine compartment (we will start with the battery side first). Where the headlights are on the front of the car, under the hood is where the bulb is located. You will see an electrical connector going into a black rubber cover. Peel the black rubber cover back and disconnect the electrical connector. Place the rubber cover to the side and on the inside you will see a very unusual looking paper clip contraption that holds the headlight bulb in place. The secret to this is that it is under tension and held in place in a slot at the bottom. All you need to do is press down, and move it sideways a little bit and it will pop out of the slot. When the paper clip contraption has come out of the slot at the bottom, simply lift it up, and the bulb will come right out. Put the new bulb in, slide the end of the paper clip contraption back into the slot in the bottom, place the black rubber cover back over the headlight area making sure the the (3) prongs from the light bulb are sticking out of the middle of the rubber cover, Re-connect the electrical connector, do the other side the same way and when you are done test the lights to ensure that they both work properly.
