#1348 of 1769 2001 Hyundai Speaker replacement
May 18, 2005 (7:53 am)
I bought a 2001 Hyundai Accent GL and want to replace the door and rear speakers. No power windows, crank style. Is there any tricks of the trade as how to get the window crank handles off so I can get to the speakers? Any help about replacing the front door and rear speakers is appreciated.

I tried to get the rotor screws off to match them so I could get screws to replace those that Monro did not put back on. They are already stripped. Any suggestions on getting them off?
I've heard that when the wheel assembly is put together, the screws don't do anything. Is this true?
Btw phillbill, yes, bricks will do (i actually prefer them over the plastic chocks i keep in the car for tire repair). Ingtone is right about not really needing them, but its always better to be on the safe side.

Rear speakers, easy!
Just undo the four screws holding them in (assuming the design is the same as my 1999 accent where they're either side of the rear shelf, not hidden behind any trim or anything), the speaker will come out, pull the old wires off, and bin the old speaker.
Now get your new speaker, connect the wires up (making sure the negative goes on negative, and positive on positive), screw it back in, and you're ready for some subwoofing sound
Now the front door pannel...caused me some grief when i had to replace my window regulator....but there's a nack!...
Get a thin flat head screw driver, push it down the side of your window winder, turn the handle, you may hear some clicking, then POP...a lil horse shoe clip will come off, so the window winder will jus pull off.
Now there's another tricky bit...the door handle, took me ages to figure this out...you undo all the screws (for me it was two in the big handle, two in the pannel near the hinge, and onw in the pull handle) also unscrew the plastic door lock, pull the door trim away from the door so as to un-pop all the lil clips, and now here's the trick, turn the trim though about 90 degrees, now you should be able to push the lil door handle through it's hole, bit of a sqeeze though.
Now unscrew the old speaker, bin it, and put the new speakin in as before. For me i had to make a wooden frame for the new speaker, (which took quite a while) as it had different mounting points.
Once the speakers in and connected, just put the trim back on, pop the lil clips in, put all the screws back in, and you're ready to put the window winder back on...just put the horse shoe clip back in the handle (u'll see where i mean) and push the handle back on, it should clip back into place. Screw the lil lock thing back on....and you now got a neat sound system to really annoy the neighbours with lol

Thanks for the detailed info. I'll tackle this project over the weekend. It looks like it might take a while. I'll let you know how it turns out.
Thanks again. There is always a trick of the trade! Your info should make the project a lot easier.
#1352 of 1769 grinding noise...
May 21, 2005 (4:27 am)
not all the time, but every now and then, when i'm going slowly in one of my gears, like 15mph in 3rd for example, i hear a small grinding noise coming from the drivers side of the engine bay (right hand drive car), could this be the CV joint worn out? It's the only obvious thing i would think of, but when it went on my sisters car it was more of a clicking sound when turning the car on full lock.
I've had a look at the CV joint...but cant see any obvious signs of wear.
The sound goes away again once the engine speed picks up. It also seems to slow down (got a lil bit of a rythem to this grind lol) as the wheel speed slows down...
I changed the gear oil as scheduled about 2 months ago with Castrol SMX-s, as instructed by my manual, engine oil's been drained flushed & re-filled recently along with the filter, so i doubt it's to do with poor lubrication of major engine / gear components.
Sounds like one of them sounds that comes about when a components tryin to say "i got a good few 1000 miles in me still, but i'm gettin tired, and when i pop im gonna make a real mess...so you better replace me now!" lol
So any help on what could need replacing given the symptoms would be usefull...thanks
#1353 of 1769 Tail lamps not working
May 21, 2005 (1:07 pm)
My tail lamps are just not coming on. Niether when my lights are on nor when I depress the brake pedal. The third brake light still works when I hit the brakes though.
I have a 2001 Accent GS Hatchback I have changed out the bulbs, relay and fuse

On my 1999 Accent, i can see three fuses to do with the rear brake lights / side lights.
There's the main fuse, in the fuse box that's in the drivers side of the cabin, then there's two other fuses, one for each bulb. On my car these are in the relay box in the engine compartment. Try changing these two, you may have been unlucky and had both of them blow at the same time....good luck....near me police are stopping people and handing out heavy fines for faulty bulbs etc.

Does anyone know about which factory head units can swap between years? I have a 2002 Accent with a cassette player and would just like a factory CD player in its place.

#1357 of 1769 replacing alternator
May 23, 2005 (4:52 am)
My alternator went over the weekend on my 2000 Accent (3 door, auto, 1.5) and I'm debating whether to buy a new alternator or a used one. The car has 248,000km/154,000 miles, mostly highway, and for the most part it's been good to me. I've keep all my service records and have a detailed summary record in Excel. Besides the usual maintenace (tires, brakes, belts, plugs etc), the problems I've had have been mainly electrical, like air flow sensors and diodes. I had a coil replaced a month ago after I lost power while driving. This weekend I was driving near home and lost power while driving again but had enough juice to get home. Got a boost and drove the car down to the garage where they say the alternator is shot. Should I bother buying a new alternator and risk it making the rest of the engine work harder or go for a used one as am leaning on getting a new vehicle in the summer/fall.
