rear reflectors

Hi any help on replacing the rear reflectors on my 2016 Tucson would be much appreciated ,i.e. do you have to take off the bumper if so any diagrams, I am planning to put in the 3 function ones I bought from AliExpress (PCS for Hyundai Tucson 2015-2016 LED warning light brake light moving turn signal rear bumper light reflector with 3 functions) thanks

I have not done this yet but I want to, eventually..

I have not even looked under the bumper yet but if it's anything like the Elantra, or even better than the Elantra, there should be plenty of room to get a screwdriver up behind the bumper to remove the reflectors. It's just one screw holding them in.

Pop the new ones in and run the wiring up. You should be able to find some access points to get the wires "in" to the car and up to the tail lights, then it's just a matter of connecting the wires. I like using t-taps.

The instructions on these imported lights usually aren't very good, so here's a tip.. use a 9v battery or something similar to test the led reflectors so you know which wires go where. Black is always ground, one wire will light up not as bright as another, so obviously the brighter one will be the brake light and the lighter one will be the tail light. If you've got the turn signal as well there should be a wire that causes it to blink.

For the most part you can use common sense to figure out what wires to connect them to. You can see which bulb is your brake light / tail light / blinker and each will have the corresponding black ground wire and x-color signal wire... just tap the wire on the reflector that you've already tested for each function to each bulb's signal wire.

The nice thing about the t-taps is if you end up finding that you connected the wrong wires you can just unhook them from the wire and move them around, no major cutting or splicing involved.

I think it's just a new part for the Tucson's so nobody has done it yet. After your post I went ahead and ordered a set from Aliexpress, they were on sale or cheaper than when I first looked at them so I pulled the trigger. Got them for $60 when I originally looked at them for $90+.

You do realise that the reflectors are a legal requirement and require to be marked as such? The replacements you propose to fit are not legal reflectors, road lights or indicator lamps.

At the very least you could be required to remove them via a Vehicle Defect Rectification Notice and an MoT fee or, more seriously, charged with various offences under RVLR.

If you have a lovely wife, sexy hot lover, cool car, no problems with the government and revenue authorities, and when you go out the sun always shines and all passers smile to you - common dude, say NO to drugs!
