Video Description

The reverse light is the white light that lights up when your Santa Fe is in reverse. The video above shows you how to change the reverse light in your 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe. These bulbs burn out occasionally and help you see when you are backing up. The reverse light gets dimmer over time and we suggest changing them in pairs.

Try not to touch the glass part of the new bulb with your finger when changing the reverse light in your Santa Fe, the oil in your finger will cause the that part of the reverse light bulb to burn hotter out therefore burn out quicker. Using gloves or a piece of paper towel will limit the potential of touching the bulb.
