How do you replace the alternator on a 2001 Hyundai XG300?

I beg you, take it to a mechanic. Me and me friends tryed this, we took off the radiator, horn, hood latch, oil cooler, fans, and A/C compressor, and discovered there is no detentioner, I finally gave up and took it to the mechanic. It took a week, and I wished i just had a mechanic do it in the first place. -- no need to remove the radiator, horn, hood latch, oil cooler, fans, and A/C compressor. What is causing most of the confusion is the lack of a quality service manual for this car. to remove the altenator. You remove the front pass. tire, and the plastic cover that protects the main pulley. (10mm bolts) put the front tire under the car to protect yourself.** I didn't remove the tire, I just turned the wheel outward so I could fit in there. If I had to do over, I would've removed the tire.

Right behind and above the oil filter is the tensioner pulley and bolt (14 mm). loosen that bolt quite a bit. (about an inch) and rotate the tensioner hub and it'll loosen right up. ** this bolt is well hidden. You need to find the tensioner hub, then slide your hand under and a little behind it and you'll find the tensioner bolt. Or use a mirror to find it. It is literally right behind that tensioner hub with the head of the bolt pointed towards the ground. Once you loosen this you'll be in great shape. (Note: this is only accessible through the wheel well, not from above.

remove the engine cover. 6 10mm bolts. (replace the oil fill cap) pull the left side fan. (two 10mm bolts) and a plug. unplug the alternator, and undo the main cable. (10mm nut) remove the bolt that connects the bracket to the engine, just loosen the other bolt so it'll swing up. (I think these are 12mm bolts).

loosen the nuts on the alternator. remove the bolts (have fun trying to get the rear bolt, you can just tap it and it'll fly out. 12m. ** reinstallation of this part was the most time consuming and irritating. Fitting your hand behind the alternator and lining everything up is terrible. Just have patience, you'll get it done. Afterall, you got it apart, right?

remove the alternator ,pry gentle back and forth and up and down until it separates from the front mount. remove the front bracket (two 12mm bolts) Then gentle coax the alternator up and out. you'll have to rotate and twist it, it'll scrap against the radiator a little. It was not my first time working on this car, and I'd say it was challenging. took me about 2 hours total. some of that was finding the right socket or wrench-rachet and determining if I should be on my back or over the hood. Second contributor on 5/8/09: Instructions were very good. I would say that putting on the bottom bolt is a 2 person job. Also, new alternator paperwork said it had a different pulley diameter and to get a 47" belt. However, a new 48" belt did work.

How do you change the spark plugs on a 2002 Hyundai xg300?

Here it is, read it and weep. Buy the plugs AND new wires AND ALSO a plenum gasket from Hyundai first. I did it, but I'm a machinist and have mechanics tools...good luck.

1. Remove the six 10mm bolts and remove the engine cover.

2. Unplug the air flow sensor connector and take the wiring loose from the air bellows.

3. Remove the pcv breather hose from the air bellows.

4. Undo the clips holding the air box together.

5. Loosen the clamp holding the air bellows on the throttle body.

6. Remove the top of the air box, the airflow sensor, and the air bellows as an assembly.

7. Undo any electrical connectors attaching to items on the plenum and throttle body.

8. Move the harness out of the way enough that it'll allow you to lift the plenum off. This may involve unplugging connectors in other places and unclipping the harness from ties in order to get the necessary slack.

9. Remove the vacuum line from the EGR valve and the fuel pressure regulator (if you have one).

10. Remove the hose that goes toward the rear of the car from the purge control valve.

11. Remove the four 12mm bolts attaching the support brackets to the rear of the plenum and throttle body.

13. Remove the two 12mm bolts attaching the EGR valve to the plenum. Take care to not lose the EGR gasket.

14. Remove the 12mm bolts and nuts (7 I think) attaching the plenum to the lower manifold.

15. Lift the plenum off the manifold and tilt up the side opposite the throttle body until it's standing close to vertical near the bottom half of the air box. (There are still coolant hoses attached to the throttle body, so you won't be able to lift that side very far). You can use a bungee or other tie to hold the plenum so it can't fall back down.

16. Cover the openings in the manifold with rags or something similar to prevent anything from falling inside the engine.

17. Remove the spark plug wires.

18. Remove the rear spark plugs.

19. Install new spark plugs in the rear bank.

How do you change the spark plugs on a 2001 xg300?

first assemble your tools, socket wrench etc and gapped sparkplugs.

if the sparkplugs are deep in the engine and you pull on the wires to get the terminal off the plugs you will gasp in horror as the wires pull in half.

when the screaming stops pull all the wires off, at least half will have pulled into two parts. then go to auto parts store and get new wires.

using new wires change plugs in the usuall manner.

How do you replace the fog light on an '01 Hyundai XG300?

In order to replace the Foglight on a 01 Hyundai XG300 you need to first remove the headlight on whichever side the foglight is located on.

This is the easiest and cleanest way to get access to the foglight assembly.

As soon as you remove the bolts holding the headlight, please remove the wiring to the headlights, each headlight should have about 2-3 plugs.

You are not ready to remove the headlight, it simply just slides out. You will not have access to the fog light, you can look straight down and feel the fog light. There is 2 Phillips screws holding the fog light, remove those two. You will now be able to slip out the fog light assembly by pushing forward on it, slipping out through the front of the car, not the inside.

You can now open the cap to replace the fog light bulb and do whatever you need. I belive the bulb size is H1 or H3, you'll see it written on the bulb itself.

Why the dashboard airbag light is on in your Hyundai XG300?

The SRS MIL is not illuminated in my Hyundai XG300, but if it is on your vehicle, I'd take it to a shop. Chances are some of your personal items collected under one of the front seats and...displaced the side airbag harness a little; causing a resistence high code to set. But it is just a guess.

That's a very good question. I'd like to know the answer to that too. The best I can figure is that there's a loose or corroded ground wire somewhere. I'm gonna try to find it this weekend.

Shocks and Struts

Hyundai XG300

How do you change rear struts on 2001 Hyundai xg300?

First off you'll need a strut compressing tool because I don't think the struts are sold with the spring. It's quite a job. Easier with air tools, but can be done with hand tools. Jack up the rear of your car, remove tire, remove bolts from the trunk area (there should be 2 or 3). There's a bolt on the bottom of the strut that needs to be removed. Then the whole assembly should come out. You may need an extra jack to support the rotor(put a piece of wood on jack so you won't accidentally damage the rotor) when you remove the strut assembly. Then use compression tool to squeeze the big spring. If you go to auto parts store, they can also print instructions that will be more in depth from what I'm typing here. That may be more helpful for you. Good luck. I'd have a buddy helping too. lol.

Where is the fuel filter located in a 2001 Hyundai xg300 and how do you replace it?

The location is driver side, on the car belly, and just in front of the rear wheel. It is easy to replace it. You would need two M10 or M12 (don't remember exactly) wrench and some patience. It would not take more than 30 min. And, remember to get a container to collect the fuels that is going be pouring out while you are going to try put the new fuel filter in. Use take everything slowly and correctly and not to panic when the fuels are leaking out because it won't be much and you can plug it up it you think it is excessive. Just try your best not to damage the hex while unscrewing or you will have more than a 30 min job.

How do you change the transmission fluid on an 2001 Hyundai xg300?

I was told by numerous mechanics that the transmission has to taken out to change the fluid.

I jacked my car up the other day and noticed a bolt near the driver side tire. I think that's where the fluid comes out if you remove it. The filter is located on the top of the transmission and looks like an oil filter. I haven't tried to change the fluid yet, but I think it's worth a shot being as they tell me it costs around 600 dollars to change the fluid. Yikes!!
