Question about 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe
I have a '04 V6 2.7 liter Santa Fe. Back in June '08 I had both front & rear brakes serviced (replaced both frt/rear pads and machined frt/rear rotors) by the local Hyundai dealer. Within a week I started hearing a creeking noise in the rear driver's side when the brakes were applied. I have returned it to the dealer 3 times since the original work & they still haven't successfully corrected the problem. The 1st time they road tested & confirmed noise. Inspected on ramp - rear brakes appeared OK. They said the trailing arm busings were separated & they replaced them. The noise problem was gone for 5 days, but returned worse than the 1st time. The 2nd time they say the diagnostics showed thew rear springs were not seated properly - they lowered the rear control arms & reseated springs, also machined hand brake & serviced rear shoes. The noise seemed to be gone, but a week later the creeking noise returned every time I applied the brakes. Again I returned to dealer, this time tjey did a brake diagnostics - cleaned up edge on the left rear rotot & lubricated the contact pointsdon the pads. The noise was gone again,but now less than 2 weeks later it has returned. I am convinced that the dealer is only speculating as to the cause of the problem. I checked Recalls & nothing related to the nature of problem I am experiencng.
Any ideas/suggestions befor I take it back for the 4th time...Frustration level is rising fast.
I knew it .hyundai is junk.... check the tire or wheel bearing

I had a similar problem......there was a rhythmic creaking noise coming from the passendger side rear wheel......I lubricated the contact points where the parking brake mechanism contacts the wheel and the noise is now gone...and has been for several months now.
