2003 Hyundai tiburon rear brakes

I wanted to change my brake pads and have the tool to turn the piston so that it will screw back into the caliber and reset it self so that i can put new rear pads in. The left rear worked great. the right rear wont screw back far enough to put in the new pads. It keeps turning but never screws down far enough.. What gives? I even bled the brakes and disconnected the hand brake just in case. Still, it keeps turning but will not reset far enough back. Help

    I did open the bleeder valve but did not disconnect it. I can try that but before I do, Will that put air in the line and then will I have to bleed the brakes or is that ol' school stuff. Wow rusted, really> even though I can still turn the piston round and round and round and round. I applied the brake as well and it fully extended out with some dripping of fluid. then i screwed it back in again and it again just stopped going any further but it still turned and turned and turned.

Did you open the bleeder screw to allow the fluid to leave;if so disconnect the brake hose.If that don't work I would think you have rust build up in the housing;recommend replace caliper

We put a c-clamp pm the caliber piston but could not get it to move--replacing brake pads on a 2008 tiburon


some of the newer cars have a caliper piston that screw back in not press back in. look at the caliper and see if it has a place to put a screw driver in and turn counter clock wise. i learned this on a 2007 honda accord. hope it helps.

2003 s type brake front pad - what tools are need to change the pads


the front pads are pretty straight forward,just a c clamp is sufficient to press the calibers,make sure the brake fluid reservoir cap is off when you do them..just unbolt the calibers from the rotors and they work the same as standard brakes,but the rear calibers at time will need a caliber tool to turn and press the piston simultaneously

I have a 2003 tiburon and I changed the rear rotors and pads but can't seem to get the caliper back on cause the lower guide pin doesn't slide like the upper one. I have never seen this before is...


YOU NEED TO COMPRESS THE CALIPER PISTON USING SPECIAL TOOL 09580 - 3400 OR YOU CAN USE A LARGE C CLAMP AND THE OLD BRAKE SHOE NEXT TO CALIPER PISTON.BE SURE TO SIPHON OUT 1/3 BRAKE FLUID OUT OF THE MASTER CYLINDER BEFORE COMPRESSING CALIPER PISTON BACK IN THE CALIPER BORE.WHEN YOU FINISH REPLACING REPLACING REAR BRAKE SHOES.MAKE SURE BRAKE MASTERCYLINDER RESERVOIR COVER BACK ON RESERVOIR BACK IN PLACE.THEN PUMP BRAKE PEDAL TO SEAT BRAKE SHOES AGAINST ROTORS AND UNTIL YOU GET FIRM SOLID BRAKES.THEN CHECK BRAKE FLUID LEVEL.DONT DRIVE CAR IF BRAKE PEDAL FEEL SOFT NOT FIRM.CHECK FOR LEAKING BRAKE HOSE OR LEAKING CALIPER PISTON SEAL.

Replacing rear brake pads. I cannot get the calibers to spread and fit the new pads? How does the calibers move back in..


No do not use a c clamp to press the rotor back in unless you plan on breaking your clamp !!!! On that particular model of (Tiburon) the calipers screw back in.

Is there a certain tool you have to have to compress the rear pistons when changing the brakes on a 2003 hyundai tiburon


Normally rear disk brake pistons have notches on the top of the piston that a tool does fit into (usually a small square shaped tool with protrusions that fit into the notches on the top of the caliper pistons and this tool usually fits onto a 3/8 drive extension and ratchet), and the piston is then rotated down into the caliper, it actually screws into the caliper. You do not want to compress this type of piston or you will damage the caliper and piston.

How do you push in the cylinder in rear brakes to change pads on a 2005 tiburon


The Tiburon's rear disk brakes are self-adjusting to compensate for pad wear. You need to twist the piston clockwise to retract it into the caliper. You should do this using a special tool from Hyundai. Alternatively, you can get generic rear brake caliper tool at most auto parts stores that you can use on the end of your ratchet.

Or, you can be really careful with a pair of channel-lock pliers and grip the edge of the piston, allowing you to twist it back into the caliper.

I understand that I will need a special tool to screw in the piston when I change the rear brake pads on my 2003 tiburon GTS. Where can I get this tool and where can I find the instructions for replacing...


It's fairly easy and the tool cost less than $10 at most auto parts stores, so why rent it? As for instructions...here you go:

- "Loosen" lug nuts.
- Jack the car up. Support with jack stand(s).
- Remove previously loosened lugs. Remove tire.
- Remove bottom caliper bolt
- Loosen, but do not remove top caliper bolt
- Caliper should now "swing" open from bottom up
- Remove old pads. They should slide right out.
- Spray in some "Brake Kleen" to clear out all that brake dust/gunk and wipe it down. You may want to place a rag or something to catch the brake kleen run off.
- Inspect your old pads for "uneven wear". This will save you tons of time later if you have a bad rotor or stuck piston that has been causing uneven wear or gouges.
- If they are worn evenly, proceed to compress the piston back into the caliper with your tool.

Some tools attach to a socket end, this enables you to ratchet the piston back "IN" to it's original position. Either way you can only turn clockwise regardless of the tool. It will be tough, but not impossible. You should encounter tough but "smooth" resistance. Both rear pistons should feel similar in resistance, if not you may have a stuck piston. You'll know though ;)

-Once completely compressed, slide in your new pads and bring the caliper back down into po-si-tion. NOTE: If you removed both TOP and BOTTOM caliper bolts it may be tricky lining them back up with a new "full" brake pad, but be persistent and wiggle those bolts back in place. DO NOT FORCE OR CROSS-THREAD ANY BOLT. WD40 should help.
- Once the new pads are on and the caliper is back in place, make sure to break them in nice and easy with slow consistent stops for the first 50 miles or so.
-The pads will touch the rotor, but that's normal and you should still be able to turn the rotor with some resistance. Once the tire is mounted, it should turn alot smoother.

Hope this helps.

hi assume you wish to fit new pads ? if so the the rear caliper pistons are not as front calipers just push back you have to wind back the pistons whilst applying pressure to piston there is a tool specially for this purpose which saves time and effort cheapest un uk is the one made by draper tool Co see motor stores? however! you can improvise and manually wind pistons back using the U shape spanner with 2x prongs that is commonly used/supplied to circular saws and this is spanner for changing blades ? does the trick if you have or can borrow one? look at pistons and you will see where tool locates you just turn c/wise and press piston as you do and it will retract have a little patience! the most important tool in the box that money can't buy ! hope this helps best wishes from uk
