Question about 2003 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

Busted Studs I was trying to change my brakes on my 05 accent, and not that im that strong but I ended up snapping two studs off the same rotor, this happened about a year ago to me on the opposite tire, but I actually forget if I have to take off the entire caliper assembly or if I can get away with just taking off the rotor, I am actually lost here, any response will help

What your going to need to do is take the brake caliper off so that removal of the old rotor is possible. you have to take the rotor off because the tire stems thread in from behind the rotor and it just makes it easier to remove the broken ones. you should then be able to just turn them out of the wheel hub but rem, they are most likely going to be reverse thread so you want to turn them toward the right to loosen them.

Need to know how to replace front studs


You might be able to get the studs out by removing the brake caliper and working thru that hole, if not you will have to remove the rotor. Working thru the caliper hole knock the studs out with a hammer, if you can get your hand or other tool in to remove the old stud, and insert the new one, use a nut of the proper thread, not the lug nut, to pull the stud into the rotor a little grease on the threads will be a big help here. Make sure the studs are fully seated by measuring the length of one of the old ones before you remove it and pull the new ones in untill the length matches. If you have to remove the rotor you will require a special tool to remove the locking nut from the rotor, but once the rotor is off use the same procedure to change the studs.

How to change front brake rotor on 2000 ford taurus wagon cause front wheel shake when brake apply


Remove both caliper mounting bolts should be 12 or 13 mm bolts. Next remove both caliper mounting bracket bolts 15mm. Rotor should then pull off. If not use large hammer and hit the face off the rotor hub between the wheel studs until it comes loose. Make sure the face of the wheel hub is free of rust between the wheel studs and use high temp anti seize around the center circle of the wheel studs.

How do I change the rotors on a 1996 F250 4wd truck?


CHANGING BRAKE PADS AND ROTORS
Changing the brake pads is pretty easy, after you remove the tire locate the two large bolts on the back side of the caliper i think they are 13/16 heads. remove these two bolts. after the bolts are out use a pry bar to work the caliper straight up off the rotor, slide the pads out of the caliper and compress the piston in the caliper, this can be done with a large c-clamp if you dont have a piston compressor (use the old brake pad as a buffer so you dont damage the piston).
4x2 remove the dust cap in the center of the hub use a pair of dikes to straighten and remove the cotter pin thats locks the castle nut in place then remove the castle nut (can be done with channellocks if you dont have large enough socket) slide the hub off the spindle careful not to drop the bearing and washer on the ground. *** put the lug nuts back on the studs up side down and flush them to the end of the stud if you still hve the stock open lug nuts if not then just be sure to hit the studs square so you dont damage the threads. place the hub on hard solid ground rotor side down and knock the studs out with a fairly good size hammer. reverse process to assemble
4x4 this is a little more difficult than 4x2 you will need some specialty tools (torqs, picks, snap ring pliers, and a 2 3/4 inch rounded hex socket) these instructions are for a stock ford automatic hub. remove the outer hub (three small torqs bolts). use a small to medium straight screwdriver to remove the first locking ring (inside lock) slide the inner hub assembly out of the hub. remove the outside snap ring from the axle shaft slide the three washers of of the shaft keeping them in order. there will be a small half circle keeper on the large nut remove this with a pick use the 2 3/4 socket to remove the hub nut slide the hub off the spindle careful not to drop the bearing and washer on the ground then follow the 4x2 instructions.

I'm having trouble getting rear rotors off of a 1999 F350 4x4 dually. I can't figure out how to get the snap ring off.


snap ring? Its a full floater! Take bolts off end of shaft pull shaft out,remove bearing lock nut (the correct socket works so sweet!), pull hub and rotor off, The studs hold the rotor to hub or some have external torx bolts that hold it to the hub.Remove those and you may need to tap hard with a hammer to separate. Where is that snap ring?
You will need new seals,and studs are a good idea,how do those parking brake shoes look?

How do i replace the front wheel studs on my hyundai accent


Hyundai in all their wisdom decided to use captive dust shields on the disc brakes. You need to completely disassemble the hub to get the shield off. On my 2008 Accent there is one spot that if you rotate the rotor to that spot and bend the shield back you can then get the stud in place. Be sure to get the right stud as the rear and front are probably different part numbers.

To get the old out use a hammer and a punch to pound them out the back. To get a new one in push it in as far as you can, then using something as a spacer (large nut or washers) and the wheel lug, tighten the stud up drawing it into the rotor.

Removing the front brake rotor on a 1998 Mazda Protege


You do not have to remove the big center nut. You might have to tap on it with a hammer to get it off. If there is anything solid near it to pry against (don't pry against the dust shield) try that too. If none of this helps you can try heating it near the center. You should be able to get it off without heating it but it is possible that that is what you will have to do.

How to change brake rotors on '99 Accent?


Hit the sides of the rotor's center section (where the lug holes are) with a hammer - often, they'll seize from the heat of the braking system. Several firm taps on it all the way around usually loosens it. If not, hit it harder (seriously). Just don't hit the lug studs or you'll flatten the threads and have to replace them.
