Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I'm still having trouble with this.
I've unscrewed both screws to the high-mount assembly and it's loose, but I can't fully remove it from behind the back seat. I've pulled and twisted and can't seem to get it free. Is there something I'm missing?
Also, whenever I get the replacement bulb with plastic housing into the hole from under the trunk, before I can screw it in, the bulb becomes loose and falls out. Anyone else have this issue?
Not beliving Hyundai would make the replacement of a bulb as difficult as the manual shows I took a look at this myself.
How to replace a Sonata high mount rear bulb step 1
Locate the hole as have been refered to in previous posts.
The round hole at the top of the picture.
Cut out the sticky thing covering it up.
Now your looking for a gold colored screw inside the hole and a silver screw inside the square hole just opposite.
Remove these and your half way there.
Inside the car pry up and out with a screwdriver on the back side. as you begin to get this up you will see the silver clip in the middle.
continue to pull upwards until it pops free. (Be careful not to pry up too forcefully or you may break off the plastic clips in the back)
Once the back clip is free you must untwist the light connector from the housing and push it back inside the hole. once done the housing will lift out.
And now, As the Hyundai manual says the installation is the reverse of removal.
(Note: Pink Floyd- Dark Side Of The Moon/Breathe Should enlisted before or during the removal and installation)
I hope this helps.
