This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 2nd generation 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 & 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe SUV in replacing the overhead dome light bulb in the passenger cabin.

A new bulb for the dome light of a Hyundai Santa Fe is part # DE3175 from Sylvania, Phillips, GE, Eiko and other manufacturers.

You can also use a brighter DE3175 LED bulb.

The only tool needed to replace the dome light bulb is a small flathead screwdriver.

Insert the blade of the screwdriver in between the translucent lens cover and the housing.
