Question about 2002 Hyundai Accent

Loose brakes/ need tightened

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.

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.

How to remove disc brakes for a 2001 hyundai accent

OK..Once you have the wheel off and you are looking at the brakes at the top of the caliper there is a bolt. This one bolt needs to be loosened and then removed. From there the caliper will swing up and off. Have something handy to hold the caliper out of the way so that it does not hang down. I have owned an "02" and an "05" There may be a bottom bolt on your caliper but if it is like the others you can remove the caliper with just the top bolt being removed. Then just take the outer brake pad out and replace it with the new one, and then do the same for the inner brake pad. Making sure that the new pad for the inside does have the sensor. From there using a "C clamp" put one end on the outside of the caliper and the other end on the inside and turn it so that the caliper will withdraw. This needs to be done so that the caliper will fit over the new brake pads which are thicker. Then just slide the caliper back into place, tighten the top bolt and put the wheel back on. Make sure and start the car and pump the brakes a few times so that the caliper will make contact with the new brake pads. From there you should be good to go.
