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

It is very easy ive done this myself, what you want to do is jack up the car making sure you have taken all safety precautions, jackstand, make sure you work on a flat surface. Remove the tire and you should see the caliper, remove i think its the bottom bolt in the back, its like a regular bolt, then make sure you remove it completely. Then use a mallet or your hand if possible, to loosen the bottom, and the caliper should swing up like a hinge, and just put something there to hold it. take out the old pads, and put the new ones in, and use a c-clamp to push in the adjuster, and make sure your cap is off of the brake fluid reservoir.

SOURCE: change hyundai accent 2001 front brake pads

Once the car is jacked up, remove the front tires, then whith a 12 wrench key, remove the bolt that is located on the rear side of the caliper, not the one holding the brake fluid line buth the one right next to it. Pry the brake pad holder off and then remove the brake pads themselves. You will need to press the caliper's piston in, to be able to fit new brake pads since new pads will be thicker.

pads are for disc brakes, shoes are for drum brakes. just look at the wheels disc brakes are always on front, do the back look the same. this can usually be seen without removing the tire.

Hyundai accent 2005 when starting up the vechile and driving there is a constant ugly sound coming from the front passenger side wheel and when applying the brakes on there is a high pitch squeel


That screeching sound is a warning that your brake pads are worn down to the point where they should be immediately replaced. If you do not replace the pads, you'll score the rotor and incur an additional expense. Remember to replace the brake pads on both sides, i.e., driver and passenger side.

That sounds like the "Porportioning valve" is defective.
