I think it will be completely covered by the warranty. I have a 2004 Santa
Fe and I'm the second owner. When I took it in while it was around 55,000
miles, they fix the clock and that was covered. I think the Hyundai
warranty is great and I will be buying a newer Santa Fe soon because: 1) I
like the vehicle; and, 2) I like the warranty.
I see I'm a little late to the party, but I've never seen a vacuum
actuator disconnect. I have seen a manual cable/cam disconnect,
however. Nonetheless, neither of these have anything to do with your
car-- all the actuators are electric. Most likely, the actuator died.

Well I'm glad you finally made it to the party! I am old hat and
referenced vacuum motor just because.
Well, the dealer was excellent and overnighted the replacement
actuator motor and installed it. Works like a champ now and my cost
was absolutely zero! After owning BMWs and JGC's for a couple of
decades I'm really impressed so far with the Santa Fe. In fact my
brother in law has an '06 Sonata with 517K miles and has only replaced
struts, brakes and tires.
