  1. Lower Ball Joints

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    I just got through this problem--or, at least, a related issue. About a year ago, I had that ka-chunk/rattle sound whenever I went over a bump, and I had my struts (REF 54-546) and torsion bar (54810) replaced by Shop B. That fixed the problem. Last month, I got a ka-chunk/rattle from the...
  2. Just bought a 2006 Sonata and Need advice for adding AUX or Bluetooth accessories!

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    It was a while ago, but IIRC, I was able to acquire the pin (there are two sizes of pins in the connector--this is the larger of the two sizes) with the wire already attached. Since the Ford/Hyundai connector had an empty spot for that pin, I pushed the pin in from the back until it clicked...
  3. Mystery Exhaust/Cat Rattle!?! Please help!!

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    Did someone drop a nut or a stone into your exhaust pipe? The easiest way to get rid of that is to pick the car up by the front and shake it vigorously until the nut falls out. But seriously--could you start the car from cold and feel along the length of the muffler (before it heats up) to try...
  4. Just bought a 2006 Sonata and Need advice for adding AUX or Bluetooth accessories!

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    I swapped out the factory radio for one with all those bells and whistles. I did this a few years ago, and it's been a blessing. Make sure you get one that accepts a USB data key in the front panel, as well. The radio I have is a JVC KD-S79BT. The Bluetooth dongle plugs into a second USB...
  5. Harmonic Balancer/Serpentine Belt Replacement

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    Too late for me now! Turns out my harmonic balancer is fine--I just needed to replace the belt and chill. Of course, the moment I sell the new HB I bought, I'll find out I need it, but why should today be any different?
  6. Harmonic Balancer/Serpentine Belt Replacement

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    I have a new (unused) Harmonic balancer/pulley, plus (I think) the bolt for it. NOT the woodruff key, though. For the 2006 (NF) 2.4L I4 engine. I bought it, but never felt confident enough to swap it out (concerns with locking out the crankshaft in order to loosen/tighten that bolt). $15...
  7. Leaking Hose

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    What you're pointing to is the air conditioner fluid line. The pump right above your alternator is the power steering fluid pump--it pumps oil, which would be black (I've been told I have a slow leak in one of the power steering fluid hooses--it must be a slow leak, since I've never had to top...
  8. Bulb replacement that illuminates transmission position

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    Common question! https://www.hyundai-forums.com/nf-2006-2010-sonata/656009-sonata-2008-gls-gear-shifter-light-replacement.html
  9. Sonata 2008 GLS gear shifter light replacement

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    I have a PDF that tells you exactly how to do it, front to back. PM me if you have any questions. If you already have a set of trim remover tools, by all means, use those instead of a "flat-bladed screw with a tape-covered tip." Maybe you can even use them instead of the "Can opener" I...
  10. Headlights and ATF 2007 2.4 Sonata

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    I tried a full-up polishing kit a year ago. It worked fairly well, but I never put on the sealer, and now the lenses are totally frosted. I took them off of the car to polish them, though. It saved me a lot of time and worry, overall. I recommend if you go down this path that you do the...
  11. Long island area people needed

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    Sorry...that should be 201K miles. I am NOT at two million miles with my car.
  12. Lost only key

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    Go to a local dealership and ask the people at the service desk if they can cut you a key from your VIN. This recently happened to my son (with a Toyota Scion), and since we had blanks already with us, there was no charge!!! Hopefully, it's a common situation with Hyundai, too! Even if you...
  13. 2006 ABS Module Recall Notice

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    I think they even provide a new "cover" (unless they just cleaned the heck out of my old one!
  14. 2006 ABS Module Recall Notice

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    I brought my car into Huntington Hyundai this morning, and except for a minor scheduling snafu, it was installed without a hitch! It took them just under an hour, and it was a nice, professional looking job. (Photos to follow, as my computer is acting up) The "hitch" was that when I made the...
  15. 2006 ABS Module Recall Notice

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    I'm going in to my dealership tomorrow (Monday) to have it done.
  16. 2006 ABS Module Recall Notice

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    It's legit. I had read about it online, and I also just got a card, myself.
  17. Snapping Studs right and left

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    They definitely are. I assume ALL shops do that, and have for years. They even use torque bars to help them limit the torque to the nuts. But what I think they are FAILING to do is to start the nuts on the threaded studs properly. They probably just slap the nut (and I hate having my nuts...
  18. Snapping Studs right and left

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    My local Mavis Tires (where I've brought my car in for simple servicing, oil changes, wheel rotations, etc.) has now snapped three or four studs off, from various wheels (I've lost count). And they'll be snapping another one off later this week. Apparently, I've found a tire shop that does not...
  19. Abs & Esc Turn Off Randomly For No Reason

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    A "Code Check" has indicated that it's my Left/Front wheel speed sensor. $60-$70 from Rock-Auto, and half an hour under the car, and I should be back in business! Anyone have any tips or tricks on swapping out the sensor? It LOOKS straightforward!
  20. Abs & Esc Turn Off Randomly For No Reason

    NF (2006-2010) Sonata
    This has happened to me a couple of times, too. I haven't worried about it too much yet, but I thought I'd see what "the real story" might be. A handful of times in the last year (or so), both the "ESC OFF" and the ABS dashboard warning lights go on when I initially start the car. They go on...
