Question about 2002 Hyundai Accent
I just replaced the brake pads on my 02 Hyundai Accent. I did everything correct; I think. The problem is that I have to continuously pump the breaks for them to work. How can I tighten or solve this?
Sounds like you got air into the line you will need to bleed your breaks. You will either need a brake bleeder tool. Or have someone else help you. Air in the line would cause this. Now if it is your rear brakes back up about 30 feet and slam on the brakes, easiest way to adjust so you do not have to get to the tensioner on the inside. But bleed the brakes first

What I would do in all honesty would be to take it to a shop and have them bleed the brakes. There should not be much cost involved and you will be assured that it was done correctly. If you want to try and do it yourself you will need to go wheel by wheel and with someones help bleed out each wheel. If you are able to use google or a similar search engine, I put in the search term "bleeding rear brakes" and there are several very good you tube videos that actually show you step by step exactly how to do this. Hope this helps.
