None of the brake lights on my daughters 2010 Hyundai Accent, come on when she steps on the brake pedal. why?


You listed this vehicle as a 2006 Accent, yet you write it's a 2010.

If 2006, it's probably the brake lamp switch. However, I've seen all three brake light bulbs burn out within days of each other.

If 2010, it's still under warranty.

How do i remove the rear brake drums on a 1999 accent


Take off any hub caps and loosen the lug nuts (just loosen them) with the tire still on the ground it is way easier this way. Jack up the rear and set the car on stands as secure as you can, please be safe. Place chocks under the front wheels to keep it from moving off the stands. Finish removing the lug nuts and remove the rear wheels. Look on the outer edge of your brake drum for a punch slot, it is an oval looking indention in the drum that you punch out to access the rear brake adjusters. If you do not see this punch slot look on the rear back plate for a rubber cap that you can pry out with a screw driver. Inside will be the brake shoes adjusters, you have to back off the adjusters to get the drum off the axel. Once you have backed off the adjusters, you can use a hammer and hitting the drum on the front edge it should come loose now to access the brake shoes. Next work on one side at the time using the other side as your guide remove & replace the shoes . Put it back together.

2005 hyundai accent is making a chattering sound


Depending on the quality of pad used you may get some noise from the brakes mainly squeaks. Grinding or chattering is unusual though. Id take it back to the place that installed the pads/shoes and have them check it out again. Do you get a vibration while braking?

Rear brake shoes


Had the same problem and had to pull spring back, using two vise grips in order to do it. Then the brake cable will slip into place if you move the lever until the cable goes into the open part of the attachment on the bottom of the lever. Then turn or twist the brake shoe until the cable end fits properly.
Make sure to examine and think about which way to insert the cable end so that it is in properly to pull the lever.
