Default DIY Listing

If you think a DIY is worthy of addition to the list, PM a moderator. We know some links are bad. We're working on it.

To keep folks from having to look around like crazy to find applicable DIY's, here is a complete list of the available DIY's here divided by section.

To post a DIY, please have all information available...

1. Where to get the product and price.

2. Tools needed and sizes of tools.

3. Sizes of wires, # of connectors, ect...

4. Favorite Beer used during installation.

5. Help needed or what needs to be done professionally for safety sake.

6. Most important, PICTURES!!!

7. Do not post just links to a DIY elsewhere online. Please post the actual DIY writeup here at HyundAftermarket, at least we will have the directions if the page ever goes down.

If your DIY is put up and is missing any of these, you may not get added to the list. Also, DIY's from other sites will not get added to this list as links and pictures change and get deleted and we don't want to police this. If you need to copy and paste a whole page or 2, do it, just give proper credit to the proper folks.

Any questions or comments, PM a moderator!

* ~ It should be noted that there are two main sections of the approved listing, one section with DIYs for Modifications you can do to your vehicle, and another that contains DIYs on maintaning your vehicle ~ *
