Just curious, how did you add the resistor for your front led turn signals?

Is your Elantra Sport 2018 model year? Mine happens to the 2018 and it is impossible for me to pull the darn tail light out. I literally try everything besides smashing it...
I didn't add resistors, I used error free bulbs. And yeah, it's a 2018.

That part you’re referring to...the bulb assembly holder, well...here’s my thoughts - I’m going to review the car wiring through the shop manual and see if I can tap into it closer to the fuse box, or I’ll just purchase x2 bulb assembly holders and notch out the side we’re the electrical contact points are and solder the resistor there. It won’t look as clean soldering the resistors near the bulb holder so I’m thinking of tapping into the wires closer to the fuse box where it can be more hidden.

Found a better way through the forum search. One of our members figured out the wiring from the main headlight harness.

Driver: Blue with Orange stripe
Passenger: Red with Orange stripe

For ground you can just wire it to anywhere on the car's metal chassis. I'll probably go this route after I figure out the tail lights situation.

1. I ordered a set of the plastic clip parts that FreewaySurfer posted. Ending up not using any of them. So save your money folks.
2. I used fire, burnt the plastic holders, took the tail lights out easily without any other tool. [https://i.imgur.com/2zeZWXA.jpg https://i.imgur.com/CepBjZf.jpg https://i.imgur.com/QbBCs7D.jpg]
3. I then used some strong tape to block out unwanted moisture and cut a slit to allow the pins to still come through. [https://i.imgur.com/szKLY5u.jpg https://i.imgur.com/bKJYY1q.jpg]
4. The tail light is super secured with only the two screw bolts.
5. I tried attaching one of the new clips that I bought without putting it to the car's body just to test. Result, SUPER tight fit. Couldn't pull it off by hand, had to use a pry tool to yank it off. So I decided to not use them.
6. I found out the turn signal wires are grey = positive, black = ground. [https://i.imgur.com/484KNk3.jpg]

I'm a happy camper now :)

Thanks...bro.

I have the complete shop manual, but it’s still appreciated.

As a bonus I’ll share the pinouts on the connecter (junction box side of the harness) for the taillights just for the heck of it. There’s two diagrams in the shop manual. I haven’t dug into which one is which (Sport model/ Limited/ SE). It really isn’t clear which one is which in terms of the limited model and the Sport model considering both have a LED taillight system.

Diagram F28-OR:

I’m not going to write it per my understanding from the shop manual. I’ll retype it word for word. (*taken from shop manual key chart)

1. B (*black) turn lamp ground (GF03)
2. R/O (*Red with orange stripe) turn lamp: Smart junction box (IPS)
3. Br/B (*brown with black stripe) [with LED] tail: smart junction box [ARISU]
4. G/O (*green with orange stripe) [with LED] tail: smart junction box [ARISU]
5. G (*green) stop lamp [with LED] tail: smart junction box [ARISU]
6. [with LED] Turn lamp ground (GF03) B (*black). [w/o LED] G/B (*green with black stripe) tail: smart junction box [ARISU]

The other diagram is F28-OL. Both list LED taillights; so...for now I don’t know which diagram is for the Alabama and Korea production vehicles. The shop manual isn’t clear there, but that’s my assumption to the two diagrams. Feeling lazy tonight...so I won’t list the other diagram details.

Loves it when the family (the forum) comes together to problem solve. HIGH FIVE MOMENT HERE! See, I knew those freaking fracking clear retainer clips were the issue. So many were like, ‘bro, are you sure you’re doing it right?’ Freak yeah! I can’t express how frustrating those stupid retainer clips are. I haven’t done mine yet, but you inspired my to get it done.

I’m still going to order a dozen (slightly exaggerated) of those retainer clips just to keep things from rattling/whatnot, but I do agree the bolts are enough to keep things fine without major unforeseen future issues.

So, just to be clear. It's not the clip at the end of the car toward the front, but the 2 whitish clips that the pins go into? I'm having an issue getting the tail lights out. I'm scared as **** of burning them, but I'm considering using some pliers and getting enough leverage to just destroy them. I wish these had the same setup as my veloster. That car was dream to change bulbs in.


EDIT: Got the bulbs out. Piggy backing off oolong's burn method. I took some long pliers and squeezed and twisted at the white caps for about 3 min on each side. and the lights slid right out.

I was having the same problem and worried about scratching the paint or damaging something. Took the nuts out and I ended up using a pillow case slid it under the front of the taillight as far back as you can and just pull straight back.
