I just acquired a 2002 XG350 L and was hoping someone had a free link to a good service manual that I could have. 177,000 miles on the clock so I know things are failing soon. I want to replace timing belt (assume this is original) and anything else that I should replace as long as I am elbows deep in this car. Thank you very much.
PS-I have found some links to manuals but the time has expired to acquire it. Thanx

Free and good do not live together.

OK. grcauto What are my options? Like I said before "I am new to Hyundai". What is the best service manual available? Start with free. I have seen where people have been supplied with service manuals. I have helped lots of people with info for other makes. I am open to suggestions. Any help is appreciated.

There isnt one, there is a guide to fitting the timming belt (beware its not an easy job) somewhere on the net but l can't remember where. best to ask your questions on this forum for some answers, BTW it would be a miricle if your vehicle has done 177,000 miles on the origonal belt

Thanx Montego, What is the best service manual out there regardless of cost. I think Haynes and Chilton are worthless. I have done a few timing belts before and I have to replace the A/C compressor (which is buried) so I thought I would do everything at the same time. I am new to forums and Hyundai so I was wondering what is the best way to phrase a question to get a speedy and accurate response? I don't like to bother folks with every little question. How long are the belts on the 3.5L good for? Factory recommendation?
Thank you very much for your answers. Have a great day.

grcauto, Have you found this site to be accurate with good explanations and diagrams? The cost looks doable but they don't show much for an example. Do you or anyone you know use this service? Can you download and print info. once you are a member? Thanx

I used AllData for years in my shop. It's professional level taken from the factory service information.
I don't know about the performance site.

grcauto, I really appreciate your time and feedback. Are you a Hyundai specialist? How does alldata work for a shop? Seems you need to sign up per vehicle. Do they have a price that covers many car makes/models? Can you download and print after you sign up? Thanx for the info.

Like i said l have never come across a service manual for the XG model and l am sure there is'nt one. the timing belt should be changed at 50/60 000 miles or five years whichever comes first. the air con. compressor is not too hard to change (from underneath) l currently own two XG's and have had them fot the past 17 years. The best place for questions and advice is right here

Thanx Montego, You seem to be the right person to talk to seeing you own 2 XG's. Where is the best parts house for price and availability and is there a wrecking yard/dismantler that has a large inventory of XG parts. I am currently looking for a 2002 Hyundai XG350L right hand front door in celedon green (beige int.) that is in good condition meaning no body work or paint work if possible. I had a perfect one lined up through EBAY but the sales guy got back and said his guys had dropped it off the loader and smashed every panel. Dammit. I have found others in celedon green with damage or other colors in good condition. I have checked all the yards in the Seattle area and most do not keep that old of cars. I also need some oddball parts (center console cup holder, fuel door spring, parking brake handle mechanism) other than that it does not leak any oil but I have not driven it as I have had to change some mechanicals first (front wheel bearing in worst condition I have ever seen and rear struts were shot). Just waiting for parts so trying to learn as much about Hyundai while i wait. What do you know about changing the brakes to the larger later model brakes? What parts are needed? Is there other models of Hyundai or Kia that use the same suspension geometry or parts as the 2002 XG? Sorry for all the questions but I figured it can't hurt to ask. Thanx in advance for any info. Peace-Out

Done by subscription about $2500 per year. Covers all vehicles.

The Internet provides the world's information at your fingertips-- except for service manuals. Particularly factory service manuals.

Best to wait until something fails and then google it. Or buy a newer Hyundai. A 2002 XG 350L is only worth about $2000. Not worth extensive repairs.
