Only answer needed from an owner of a 2001 Hyundai Elantra GLS, having had to change headlight bulbs: After you open the hood, there is a black cap to screw off, now you are dealing with the light closest to the grill if you are replacing low beams. Now, pull out the plug with wires, then undo the spring clip, then remove old bulb. Place new bulb in, replace spring clip, reinsert wires. On the driver side, you will most likely have to take the plastic piece around the battery out, which means dealing with 4 screws, all on top, then turning a hose tip away from the light to get enough room to do the same. CAUTION: The bulbs are pressurized, be careful in handling bulbs, and it is advised not to directly touch the new bulb with your skin.

When replacing the spring, place one side under screw and use needle nose pliers to place the other edge under the screw. I used hemostats and this was the only way I could get the spring in place. Hold with pliers and then tighten the last screw with the other hand. This was on passenger side, the washer reservoir was in the way a little. I'm an over 50 woman so should be a breeze.
