My daughter has a 98 Elantra and the rotors are part intergated with the hub assembly. Unless you have a pretty elaborate shop set up in your garage, you will need to take the hub assemblies (both sides) to an automotive machine shop. The reson for this is that the 2-part bubs need to be pressed apart to get the rotors out. This will no doubt damage the bearings so they will need to be replaced. I did this a couple of years ago on my daughters car and the cost was about $80 per side, $37 for labor to press the bearings out (and the new ones in) and about $43 for the new bearings. If you are not comfortable dissassembling the front suspension of your car, I suggest taking the entire car to a reair shop. Of course the labor and parts will probably be double or triple of what they cost to do it yourself, but risk safety just to save a dollar. Life is too valuable (and too short)

Take it to the dealer... :) Seriously. I had a 1998 elantra, and I believe up until 1999 they used what are called "captive" rotors. Basically meaning you have to disassemble the hub in order to remove the rotor. It's a royal PITA and I would highly recommend it not be attempted without thorough instructions.

The Hyundai beta motor has not seen much change in 13 or so years it has been around the starters should be interchangeable.

I've yet to change mine, but I hear that you specifically need to get Hyundai brand tranny fluid. Don't use generic.

Yes. 1996 through 2000 Elantras and 1997-2001 Tiburons are basically all the same car, with different skins.Stocker @ RDTiburon.comDavid @ votefordavid.blogspot.com

I'm not sure but they're usually located in the center

Under the driver's side dash on the left. Look for the little door.

for a 98 it was $50, plus tax, straight from the dealer

Does not have one. The engine uses cam overlap to achieve the effect of the EGR valve.

Unfortunately it usually requires removal of the entire gauge cluster. I've never worked on your type of car before though, so I could be wrong.

Check your fuses. If they are all good and none are blows, you probably have a short somewhere in the electrical lines.
