I'm not sure what to look up. The year and engine size don't match that model. The closest switch I found is for a 2007 model. That is bolted to a bracket behind the brake pedal. It's not difficult to replace but it has to adjusted properly. If it's too far one way, the brake lights will stay on all the time or flash while you're driving on bumpy roads. If it's too far the other way, it will keep the brakes applied and they'll overheat.

There is a recall on these brake switches. Bring it into a local hyundai dealer and they will replace it for free.

Sorry, I just saw your response. This recall was created due to the brake switches becoming defective internally. The original ones are made with brushes inside and after awhile they wear out and break. Similar to brushes on a starter. This can cause the check engine light, ABS light, and/or the ESC light. This really affects the newer cars that have the push button start as it does not allow the driver to start the vehicle with a defective brake switch. The newer brake switches are changed into a transistor type that does not wear very easily.
