#1 of 19 how to remove driver's side headlight
Jun 04, 2007 (6:53 am)
When I try to remove the plastic cowling to first remove the battery the phillips head screws turn but won't come out. Any suggestions?

Are you talking about the plastic fasteners with the phillips head centers? While twisting with the screwdriver, push the other part of the faster sideways to take up any slop in the hole. This does two things: It keeps the other part from spinning, and it squeezes it a little so the screw unscrews instead of slipping.
I hope that made sense; let me know.

#5 of 19 2002 Elantra headlights
Feb 09, 2008 (10:59 am)
I have a 2002 Elantra sedan, and a few days ago, both headlights went out at the same time. The Hi-beams work fine, but I have no low beams at all. I have checked the fuse, relay and headlamp bulbs and all appear to be fine. I even swapped fuses and relays of the same size/type to see if there was a problem that was not visble. Does anyone have any sugestions as to what the problem might be?

Maybe you hit a bump, and they both went out at the same time or maybe they were just worn out. I had quite a few low beam go out on my 2004 GT. No high beams.

Here's a follow up on what the problem actually was:
I can't explain why it happened to both at the same time, unless I had only one light for a while and didn't notice until the second one went out. But the problem was the headlamp bulb socket. The wires going into the socket had a small amount of corrosion on them (apearantly enough) and they didn't work. While trouble-shooting I was jiggling the wires (somewhat vigorously) and the light came on, then repeated on the other side and same thing. So I removed the wires, cleaned and reinstalled them and have had no problem since.
#8 of 19 Front Parking Light Issue
Apr 22, 2008 (5:36 pm)
When you turn on the parking light swith (a click from the headlight position), the rear parking lights come on, but the front ones do not. Even with headlights on, the parking lights up front are still off. Turn signals and flashers work just fine. Bulbs are good. Switch also appears OK, as rear parking lamps come on. Any ideas what can be wrong? Is there a relay I am missing?

Maybe both your front parking light bulbs are out.
