Yes, and potentially dangerous. Better to have a shop do it if you're not familiar with cars (you'll need a spring compressor if just replacing the shock, but an impact wrench is a must whether your replacing the shock or the whole strut). However, the service manuals for Hyundai can be found on line at Click on the "shop" tab, choose your car and find the information you are looking for. More information can be found at:

How do you replace the cabin air filter on a 2002 Hyundai Matrix?

Hmm - either Toyota Matrix or Hyundai Excel, not a combination of the two. Nevertheless, the air filter is probably located under the hood in a black canister with a few clips holding the lid on. Open the canister, pull off the old filter, put in the new one. It's pretty tough to muck it up too badly.

How do you replace front struts on a 1998 Ford Contour?

I have a Contour as such. I always did all the maintenance on my cars. The Ford Contour is a total engineering failure. Your problems are just getting started. This car is such a tough one to fix. The engine runs too hot, coil springs are always breaking, electronic bugs, and the transmission will slip around 180 000 km. Most cars I work on, I could replace the front struts in a few minutes. It's been ten hours on the Contour. This is not a Ferrari, it's not worth the effort. Just get yourself a nice, used Toyota. In the mean time, you can drive with your suspension as it is, for several months. if it took you ten hours you need to give up on the do it yourself approach I can do all 4 struts in about 2hours LOL

Rear struts are tough. must take out back seat to make things easier. loosen the 3 small nuts on top of shock tower. then dissasemble at the wheel will need a bar and a sledge hammer to beat off the wheel assembly from the bottom of the strut. When that is all done and off take off the 3 small nuts on top and it will come right out.
