Default How to remove front headlight assembly

I want to replace the existing low beam lamps witha set of Xenon lamps/ballasts. (It doesnt appear that I have enough room to just swap out the existing lamps w/o taking out the headlight assembly.)

Has anyone done this? The owner's manual is not clear asto how many bolts need to be removed. (I see three on the top and one on the inside towards the radiator). Is that all?

How difficult is it to remove the assembly?

thanks

You don't mention what year your Sonata is but mine is a 2006 and there are two bolts on the top and one on the inside towards the radiator. If you remove these anddisconnect the wiring harness connector which plugs into the back of the headlight unit it will slide right out easily.

1.Disconnect the negative (-) battery terminal.
2.Loose the mounting bolts (2EA) of head lamp.

3.Remove the head lamp assembly after disconnecting the lamp connectors.
Take care that holding clip (A) is not to be damaged.

4.Remove the bulb caps from the head lamp assembly after turning in the counter clock-wise direction.
A : Head lamp high bulb
B : Head lamp low bulb cab
C : Turn signal bulb cab

5.Installation is the reverse of removal.
