I want to change the front signal bulbs in my 2000 Tiburon but I have no idea how to get them out. Any suggestions?<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Not sure if the 2nd gen Tibs are the same but...

Look behind the headlight housing with the hood open... You will see 2 sets of round caps with fins on them. Unscrew them a 1/4 turn and they should pop out. Then reach in there and turn the light bracket a bit and pull it out. Be carefull not to touch the light bulb cause it may be hot if recently used. Unplug it from the harness and put the new one in.
Again... Do not touch the new bulb because any oils or contaminents on your hand will cause the bulb to burn out prematurely.

Reverse the steps to re-inatall it.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

I think you were asking about the Turn signal lights right if so I just got the Clear corners for my 00 Tib and I wanted clear bulbs instead of the yellow ones so all i did was pop out the clears and pushed in on the bulb and turn it (this is after I spent 10 minutes trying to yank it out and then got smart and just pushed down for some great reason before I broke it) it will come out with no prob...<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

The only things holding it down is that screw on the top and at the bottom its held down by a rubber grommet.

you just want to take and replace the bulb right?. The right side is easy just twist and pull the socket. It's harder on the left side though. I had to take my battery out to reach the socket assembly.

I figured it out. All you have to do is pull the little screw out of the top of the assembly and then the whole corner pulls out.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>
