Dear Hyundai_81,

Difficulty? If an oil change is a 1 and an engine rebuild is a 10 this job is .....a 1. Takes 10 minutes the first time you do it, IF you have a 1/2 drive socket wrench or the special belt tensioner release tool from Autozone.

Goodyear and Gates are excellent choices for replacement belts.

Your vehicle is so new that no belts are listed as available with Autozone auto parts in your year group.

The belt for a 2004 Santa Fe 2.7 liter with A/C is:



Gatorback / Belt
4060790 $25.99


Application:
With A/C
Note:
Poly-V w A/C
Unique Gatorback rib design reduces noise and extends life by reducing heat build-up

Where's my bailout?

Dear Hyundai_81,

Even better:

Autozone will LOAN you the special tool, just have to leave a deposit which you get back upon return.

Just a heads up on the gatorback belt-

Before I was at the dealership I used to work at, one of the techs there had a 2.7 SF with a misfire code that was proving just about impossible to diagnose. After all sorts of work being done it was determined that the unique ribbing on the Goodyear belts was causing a very minute vibration that was being picked up by the knock sensor as a misfire. I know it sounds crazy but it happened. Gates makes the timing belts for Hyundai and they make a good product.

The only tricky part on changing out the belt is you need to unbolt the tensioner to remove the old belt, its just 2 bolts. Other than that its pretty easy.
