How to Change a Headlight in a Hyundai Tucson


The headlight in your Hyundai Tucson should be checked periodically to make sure that it is functioning normally. The headlight can burn out suddenly for a few reasons. The most common reason is moisture build-up inside the housing assembly. When moisture builds up inside the housing assembly, it can collect on the surface of the headlight. If this happens, then the bulb portion of the headlight can explode, or the moisture can cause an electrical short. Replacement headlights can be purchased from most auto parts stores.

Step 1: Open the hood and remove the two retaining screws on the top of the headlight housing assembly with a Phillips head screwdriver.

Step 2: Slide the housing assembly forward.
