You do not want to know the retail price or you will not sleep tonight. As long as there is no evidence of a stone chip causing the leak I do not see how they wrangle out of this.

What country are you in?
12 months is a normal minimum warranty, but in most countries it's longer for cars.

If you have to pay then as these cars are fairly new you'll probably only be able to get actual Hyundai spares from a dealer or motor factor - there likely won't be any aftermarket stuff yet - so call them for a price.
You might get lucky at a breaker's yard.

Depends if it’s halogen or led, price will be around 500/700 pounds plus fitting. There are no third party replacements that I’m aware. If you buy from a breakers yard (I think that will be a lucky find) double check the wiring harness against your car, the halogen and LED are different.

Due to a small impact
If you can reasonably claim it was accident damage (eg. in a car park) you might be able to claim on insurance.
(Though if your NCD systems are like ours it might be cheaper not to :eek: )

If it was just a stone chip you are a bit stuffed.

Lesson to all of us I guess - check those lights occasionally ... before it gets expensive.

It would be good to find the LED headlights as mine are Halogen and I am a SAW 👀

Be aware that the wiring loom is different, so unless you hack the cable to work it wouldn’t be a straight swap.
Thanks don't want be messing with that then

I wouldn’t recommend it, it might be easy, but the LED lights do self levelling too, dunno if that’s all built into the headlight, but there are definitely extra wires I’ve checked. Lasfit claim to have a kit that works with the halogen enclosures...
