That's how they make money. A lot of parts stores will do this for free if it's not too complex. I have seen dealers charge as high a a 140 bucks to replace a headlight bulb. But I have only heard of some charging much more, it all depends on how muck stuff you have to remove to gain access to the lamp. You can go to you tube and type in your year make and model then headlight bulb replacement, it will give you an idea on how much work is involved.

I definitely would not go to the Hyundai Dealer for something like this. I only go to the dealer for warranty work or (heaven forbid), a major accident repair job. Find a decent independent repair shop (or as tennisshoes suggested, a local auto parts store like Pep Boys, Advance Auto Parts, NAPA Auto Parts should be able to do this very inexpensively....in my area, they would not do this for free....Pep Boys only puts on wiper blades for free, and that's only if you bought them from there).

One of the easiest fix is to replace a light, all you have to do is locate the bad one, to take it out in most cases is to turn the light bulb socket one fourth of a turn and pull back, take the bad bulb by pulling it out of the socket, then take it to a auto part store and get the exact one, put it back the same way you took it out

Even easier fix would be a trip to AutoZone and they will not only sell you the light bulb, but also install it for you for free.
