I wanna change the bulb to a brighter white color vs the stock but can figure out how to remove the dam assembly? How body know how? I removed the 3 obvious screws that seem to hold it in place but it doesn't come out and the room behind the assembly isn't enough to squeeze hand through and turn cover?? Any suggestion would be appreciated.

I dont know if this has been answered for you or not but you could try removing the front bumper to get the headlight assembly out. I had to do that with my Speed6 and my VW Jetta, there was two bolts hidden under the bumper. I have removed the bumper from my Elantra Sport,super easy to do, but I did not pay attention to the headlight mounting, sorry.

You may be able to access it just by removing wheel and the wheel well wall and going that way, which is how to change HID's on many modern cars. The alternative is to remove the headlight assembly, but that often requires also removing the bumper and airbox to access hidden screws on the bottom of the assembly and the front under the bumper. Usually its just easier to take off a tire and the wheel well and pop the bulb out that way through the wheel well.

Remove front bumper, remove tire, remove wheel well wall, go in through wheel well.
This.. No need to remove bumper though just go in behind the well... But it's a tight squeeze... If you need to take off the head light, then whole bumper needs to come off.

Has anybody changed their headlights with any of these methods successfully? Does anyone know if there's any pictures/videos of how to do it? How would a Hyundai dealership change the bulbs?

I have done it without removing bumper or going through wheel well, prepare to crush your hands. Wheel well is probably the easiest. You only need to take off the first 4-5 body plugs/clips to peel it back enough to access bulbs. Bumper comes off easy enough but there is no need to just change bulbs.
