Owners of other Hyundai or Kia vehicles such as the Elantra, Sonata, Azera, Santa Fe, Tucson, Accent, Ioniq, Genesis, Tiburon, ix20, i20, i30, i40, Veracruz, Optima, Cadenza, K900, Soul, Niro, Sportage, Sorento, Sedona, Rio, Forte and Spectra may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The compatible replacement light bulb part numbers are as follows: Low Beam # H7, High Beam # H7, Front Turn Signal # 1156A (or 1156NA) and Side Marker # 2825 (or W5W).

No tools are needed to access and replace the light bulbs in either the driver side or passenger side headlight housings.
