Question about 2002 Hyundai Accent
2002 hyundai accent
First make sure you have the park brake on
Raise the front end make sure to support with jack stands
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
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.

Are you stupid? for a hyundai accent first you must use an hub puller to pull the hub from the axle to get the rotor off! i can do this job which costs $300 at canadian tire for 65 dollars

Remove the lower bolt and lift the caliper assembly up and secure it with a wire or some other retaining method.
Remove the pads.
CAUTION: Do not depress the brake pedal while disassembling the pads
INSPECTION 1. Check the pads for wear or oil contamination and replace, if necessary. • The pads for the right and left wheels should be replaced at the same time. Never "drop" or intermix brake pad sets. • All four pads must be replaced as a complete set. • When replacing the brake pad, check for deformation. When replacing the guide spring, use a new one or the used one after cleaning away foreign material. 2. Check the pad for damage or deformation. Brake pad thickness: Standard value: 9 mm (0.354 in.) Service limited value: 2 mm (0.0787 in.)
INSTALLATION 1. Install the pad clips. 2. Install the pads onto each pad clip.
3. Insert the piston in the cylinder using the Special Tool (09581-11000). 4. Install the new pads. The shims are attached to each pad as illustrated Be careful so that the disc or pad isn't contaminated by grease. 5. Install the bolt and tighten to the specified value. Tightening torque Guide rod bolt: 22~32 Nm(220~320 kgf·cm, 16~24 lb·ft)

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.
