The geniuses at Hyundai designed the hood that makes it impossible to pull the wiper arms up to replace the blades. Obviously the hood will be have to be raised but any other hints to help?!

I thought the same thing and then read the manual.
shut the car down from running
and then hold the wiper control up as if for intermittent. The blades work until you let go.
fyi - from you tube to save having to replace blades in the future - get some WD40 on a rag and wipe the blades completely. they'll be like new and then keep after them with the WD40 every few months

It's no consolation that some models of the Hyundai i30 as well as other makes have a similar design issue.... !🤬

It's not a design issue. It was designed for aerodynamics, Both wind noise and MPG improvements. And also aesthetics,. Who wants to see wiper blades?
Sorry - but these wipers are for retards who don't deal with snow and ice!! Thought the Koreans had snow and ice issues. Then why design crap for California or Florida when the car ends up in North Dakota!?!?!
