Post is a month old but maybe someone else will read it and get the information. This is actually very easy. Make sure the parking brake is set and remove the wheel of whichever side you are working on. The calipers on this have one bolt on the top that needs to be loosened. Once the top bolt is loosened you will need to pull up on both sides of the caliper to disengage it from the brake pads/rotor. Once it is disengaged it is best if you have something available to tie it off for the moment so it does not just hang as that can damage the brake line. Once you have the caliper pulled out of the way-if you are new to brake jobs familiarize yourself with the alignment of the brake pads. Each side is going to have an inner and outer pad. The pad that goes on the inside is the one that has the sensor, it is a metal clip attached to the bottom of the brake pad. Before you take the old pads out compare their position with your new pads. Using a screwdriver as carefully as possible pop out the old "outer" brake pad and put the new one back in its place. Doing only inner and outer one at a time will help with your brake hardware brackets at the top and bottom of the pads not falling/coming out of place. Then replace the inner brake pad. Once that is done what you are going to need to do is to push the caliper back in. This is done with what is called a C-clamp-medium or large size-available at most parts places. They will know what you are talking about. When you are looking at the caliper what you will notice is that in the middle it is protruding out. You need to push it back into the caliper so that it will fit the new brake pads. Put one end of the C-clamp on the edge of this protrusion and put the other end of the C-clamp on the back of the caliper. Turn the handle until it is taut and at that point it will be harder to turn but as you turn the C-clamp handle the caliper will begin receding until it is flush at which point you are ready to put the caliper back on. Put the caliper over the new pads and where you took the bolt out-you may have to push the caliper guide pin out slightly to put the bolt back in but it should be no real problem. Once you have tightened the top caliper bolt back up, put the wheel back on and do the other side. Once both sides are done before you drive the car you will need to make sure and start the car, and pump the brakes a few times so that the caliper can make firm contact with the new brake pads. After that you should be good to go

How do I replace front wheel bearing in a 2008 hyundai accent?

Hi there, I think from memory the whole hub assembly comes with new bearings when you replace it, it's a easy change, remove wheel, remove the brake calliper, remove the front axel nut and the hub should come off, hope this helps, it's a easy change

2002 Hyundai Accent Problem: intermittent

What your car is shouting at you is that there is a low power problem. This may be simply a battery cable or a corroded connection but the systems are not able to get the power they need. I would take the vehicle to a AutoZone (or competitor) as they have free diagnostics for the battery, alternator and etc. They can also read the codes in the OBC module.

How do i change the front brake pads

First make sure you have the park brake on
Raise the front end make sure to support with jack stands
Remove tires

this should leave the front brakes exposed

there are two slide bolts holding the caliper in place loosen both and remove

then wedge a screw driver between the inner pad and the rotor and lightly pry towards you to take some pressure off of the caliper

you should now be able to lift off the caliper it will still have the brake line attached to it so be sure to secure it to something ie a bungie strap to the suspension or something do not just let it hang by the brake line

slide out the old pads out of the caliper mounting braket

now take a caliper press and push the piston back into the brake caliper use the old inner pad do not push directly on the caliper piston (if you dont have a caliper press just substitute a c clamp it works fine)

if replacing the rotors remove the caliper bracket once again two bolts

remove the caliper bracket

remove rotor

Make Sure to inspect the caliper for leaks or damage

To install reverse and youll be done before you know it

Make sure to lube slide pins with a small amount of brake grease and make sure the caliper moves freely apon installation

After you have done both sides

set down car and slowly pump the brake pedal about 15 times to close the distance between caliper piston and brake pads thats all

I hope this helps
