Okay, found this in a later forum, think I will head to the dealer.
The reason you can't get at the right hand side to replace the bulb is that Hyundai placed the ABS electronic control module right behind the headlamp assembly unit. There are only three bolts that hold the ABS mounting plate to the car body - remove those three bolts, and you can lift out the entire ABS control unit. Don't remove the ABS module from the plastic mounting plate - just remove the mounting plate, together with the ABS unit. You will need a ratchet wrench with an extension shaft to reach the three bolts.
If you need to, you can also unplug the cable connectors to the ABS unit. Reconnect them after you re-install the ABS unit. If you do this, then disconnect the battery and reconnect it when you are done, or else your engine trouble light will come on.
You will also have to remove the upper portion of the windshield washer resevoir filling neck - this is accomplished by removing a single bolt and then pulling the neck assembly away from the body of the windshield washer resevoir.
With the ABS module and windshield washer resevoir neck removed, you can access the rear of the right headlight assembly.
