Question about Hyundai Cars & Trucks
My caliper piston rubber seal was broken on the rear end of a sonata 98 model, i like to replace it with a new caliper but, cant get off the cable witch is conected to the caliper... is there any tools to pull the end of the cable to an hook it from the caliper... please help...
Slacken the handbrake cable under the centre consol so the cable is slack then it will just pop out ,if adjuster not their look under the floor behind the heat shroud ,sure its under the centre consol though on this motor think you have to pull the boot of the handbrake and its a ten mill nut with a long deep socket to undo it .Sorry old timers catches up with us in the end and i just do not remember

SOURCE: Changing rear breaks
Try tapping around the rotor hat (the area that actually fits over the hub, where the lug bolt holes are) with a hammer. That usually will loosen up a rotor that's stuck due to heat, dust, etc. As for compressing the rear piston, they're a screw-in design, not a compression design like the front calipers. You need a piston retracting set (you can borrow them from AutoZone), and with that you can screw the pistons into the calipers. After removing the reservoir cap underhood, screw them all the way in so that you have ample clearance for the new pads over the new rotors, then pump the brakes a few times before you hit the road (put the reservoir cap back on first).

the piston needs to be screwed back in as it is being compressed. there are several aftermarket tool you can buy to do this from 10 to 200 dollars depending on how nice of a tool you want.also make sure when compressing piston that the hand brake is off all the way.

i will assume it is a front wheel drive, which would make ratcheting sound being caused by a faulty CV joint.
to bleed brakes you need two people, you start with farthest from brake resivior, there should be like a little valve on the back of each brake caliper and behind brake drums. valve appears to look like it should have tube connected to it. it will be fairly small and around brake line coming into respective wheel. one person in car one person out, person in pump brake pedal several times and hold to floor, person out, have wrench and open valve person in car keeps pedal to floor until person out so valve is reclosed, do this procedure several times each wheel, all the while watching brake fluid level, if you run out of fluid or person in lets up before valve is closed air will get in lines and possibly caause permanent damage to master cylinder

If it's like the 2003 The left-hand brake caliper piston retracts counter clockwise and the right-hand retracts clockwise.

Inspect/Service/Replace To be able to replace brake pads, service the rotor, or to replace the caliper, the caliper must be removed. The procedure for doing this will vary according to caliper design. Always follow the specific procedures given in a service manual. Use the following as an example of these procedures:

Jun 12, 2010 | 2003 Jaguar X-Type
Mar 19, 2010 | 2003 Mini Cooper
