Hello, You will have to have a pretty good mechanical basics in order to do the job, Book time is 12.7 hours, It takes a fair amount of work but really not too greatly difficult. Hyundai does not offer pictures, only text via the repair manual. I have included all steps required to do the job,. basically you are unhooking everything you can up top. then exhasut and axles from under side as well as mounts.
