If you are one of the Accent owners that are in need of replacing them, then this article is just what you need. The table outlines the bulb sizes as well as a guide on how to replace the headlight bulbs.

Reasons for needing to replace the bulbs on your Accent?

Bulbs on a car do not last very long, especially if you have halogen or HID bulbs installed, and once they stop working, there is a reason to replace them. Driving at night with only one headlight is not ideal and may even be dangerous for you and other cars around you.

The newer generations of the Accent have a quite modern look, but you still be stuck with outdated bulbs that no longer look as moderns as one might like. To ensure that your car looks as stylish as it can be, replacing the bulbs with LEDs is another reason you might want to undertake this upgrade.

Positive sides to replacing the bulbs with LEDs on a Hyundai Accent

Compared to the older types of bulbs, LEDs have several positive sides that make them worth it.

The process of replacing the bulbs is not something that takes a few seconds and is not very cheap, so you would want to use bulbs that will last longer. That is why you should use LED bulbs. They can provide several times longer lifespan than HID bulbs, meaning that many years will pass before you need to make another replacement.

To ensure that other parts of your car last longer, LED replacement is a great start. In a car, the alternator is the part that sends power to the lights, and the more power it needs to send, the more it needs to work. By replacing the halogen or HID bulbs with LEDs, you will reduce the power requirements, and that reduces how much hard the alternator needs to work.

How can you replace a headlight bulb on a Hyundai Accent?

Replacing a bulb takes a few minutes, but make sure that the power is disconnected before you begin.

On the back of the headlight assembly, you should see a plastic cover. Unscrew it and unplug the connector from the bulb. Unlock the metal pin holding the bulb and make the replacement. Make sure to set the new bulb with the same orientation as the previous one.

Would I need to replace all bulbs together?

No, you can replace the bulbs as you please and when you can. All are independent, so there would be no damage in doing that.
