My video walks through both the driver- and passenger-side front headlight bulb replacement on the 2013 Hyundai Elantra.

Thanks, incredibly unskilled when it comes to anything repair related but I took care of both of my front headlights today thanks to this tutorial. Here's to hoping they continue to work after I hit a pothole 🙂
