Look up on HMA service site for interior rear seat removal to locate the necessary bolts to remove. ( Very helpful for the DIY person who has a bad memory). It will make a good guide to help you. This is the bar here:

1- fold rear seat down and unbolt seat back from the hinges. 3/8 drive ratchet and 12mm deep socket:

2-In addition to the 12mm socket and ratchet, add an 4 inch extension. This will help you reach the bolts on the bottom of the side seat pads. Unbolt, push up to unhook.

3-Now you can see the strut mounting bolts. Remove the grey trim covers with door trim removal tool (preferred) or carefully with a screwdriver (not preferred).

4- Remove the side covers at the rear window. Use the door trim tool for this, go to deep and you'll mess up the rear defroster wiring.

5- Remove and unplug the third brake light. (pops out) Remove two philip screws that support the back deck trim cover (In the front, two brackets). At this point I decided not to remove the entire rear deck panel. I carefully pulled it up far enough to get to what I needed to. The actual install took only minutes. Eack tower had 3- 12mmm nuts, and the bar fit perfectly.

Side brackets too:

For the DIY'er it will take about 1 - 1.5 hrs, if you take your time. This is for reference only. Do so at your own risk..If your squimish, let a mechanic or tech do it for you..There's no shame in letting a qualified person do the work if you can't.

Just got my rear swaybar from PST in Austraila. Can't do any install until warmer weather though. She's a beauty. (Application is for a 04 Elantra 4 door # PSC-SWA-XD1. ) Cost was $228.00 US shipped air freight.
