I did. Wasn't too bad. If you have descent mechanical skills, it's a breeze. Time consuming. Took about 2-3 hours start to finish

I would check in with the dealer as this may qualify for an extended warranty fix.

Hyundai only paying dealer 48 minutes labor for the Extended Warranty....

Original published TSB was 90 minutes.. It disappeared from menu when Extended Warranty on part come along.. if you know where to go, a little over an hr is typical.. Push button start is easier than key start with respect to wiring removal from column

SUBJECT:
MOTOR DRIVEN POWER STEERING (MDPS) COUPLING WARRANTY EXTENSION (TXX7)

Description:

The MDPS (motor driven power steering) assembly contains a flexible rubber coupling
which may wear over time resulting in a slight “clicking” or “thud” type noise when turning the steering wheel.

The warranty coverage for this coupling has been extended to 10 years from the date of
original retail delivery or date of first use or 100,000 miles, whichever occurs first.

This bulletin describes the service procedure to replace the coupling. Refer to the warranty and service parts information outlined in this bulletin whenever MDPS coupling replacement is required.

Wear of the coupling does not affect the ability to steer or control the vehicle and is not a
safety issue.

<--- Please fill in the 'location' and 'what you drive(year & chassis) and engine size' boxes on your personal profile page.

With the right tools, that could be true. I'd let them do it. The part is $2

I watched a couple youtube videos. I HATE letting anyone near my car, but I already have like nine other recalls that need to be done. Given that it seems like it needs to be changed a lot, I might do it myself. The three-hour first time for a half-hour job seems typical. The more you do it, the easier it gets type of thing. Thanks all.

Yes, if I had to do it again, I could probably do it in an hour or so

I did mine and it took right at 2.5 hours. That time included watching(you tube video) and reading the instructions.
Really not that bad.

Took me an hour to do this in the driveway. No need to remove the cluster like some do. Be sure to have a T30 socket and a 1/4 drive socket and ratchet for it. Quite easy. Nice that they extended the warranty for this part. But it's a poor design and will fail again.
