If you are just taking the dash out you do not need to take out the metal frame. make sure you have the passenger air bag bolts removed from the frame. there isnt any screws from the rear.after all bolts are removed you will need to pull on it pretty hard to get the 3 hold in clips to pop off.

probably not. most inside door handles are push on and held with a spring clip that requires a flat tool that slides between the handle and the plastic washer or the plastic plug in the center of the handle prises out and ther will be a small screw to remove then the handle slips off. Normally the screw has a 8 mm head or a philips screw recess
Remove the intake tube, maf, etc. Undo the fuel line into the rail. be careful fuel will spray if the car has recently ran. cover it with a rag to avoid spray. Remive any vacuum lines including the large one to the brake booster. Re,move the 2 coolant lines to the throttle body. There will be 2 supports that go to the block on the underside. Remove the bolts for those. Undo any plugs and harnesses in the general area. Remove the manifold. I believe it is 5 12mm bolts.
With the car on ground, break loose the drive-axle nut, and the wheel nuts , than jack up the car, support it properly, remove the wheel ,remove the axle-nut.
Remove the brake caliper assembly-- support it properly.
Remove the two bolts that hold the hub bracket to the Macpherson strut assemble, remove the lower arm ball joint and remove the steering tie- rod ball-joint attached to the hub bracket. That's it.Slide off the hub /with the bracket off the drive-shaft.
Follow steps backwards to assemble back.
The mechanism is located behind the plastic cover on the door side. You'll need to remove this trim piece to get at it. It's held on by screws. When you get to the mechanism it is held on by a torx bolt. Good luck
hi from uk not sure if same as uk hyundai's but here goes ? if you remove wheel do you see two countersunk posi screws between studs that appear to hold rotor ?? if so then you will have to first remove the brake caliper assy by unbolting from the rear of caliper two 13 mm spanner/socket ? then you remove the two bolts that secure the carrier that the caliper bolts to 17 mm spanner/socket now you can remove the two contersunk screws then you may have to tap the rotor off the hub from rearuse a wire brush to clean up/away all rust/dust from caliper and carrier assys b4 refitting (take precautions from breathing dust) i assume you are fitting new pads ?? reassemble carrier then b4 fitting pads smear a light coating of copper grease on the rear of pad (metal side ) this prevents squealing on brakes then fully reassemble then b4 fitting wheel? bleed the brakee caliper a couple of pumps should expel dirty fluid then fit wheel carry out same proceedure on other brake assy as above fully then b4 you move car pump brake to ensure pedal is firm you will find that bleeding brakes will make pedal firmer as the old fluid becomes compressable due to heat/moisture absorbsion over time and heat from brakes is transferred to fluid via caliper piston understand?? that is why alway policy to bleed/flush brake fluid at least two yr interval this reduces spongy brake pedal hope this is all clear 4 you to follow best wishes for new year and hope you update on how you go on??
My hyundai had the emergency brake bracket (mounted to the back of the caliper) rust solid. I used rust eater to get it to slightly break loose. I eventually had to replace both calipers. It is a very consistant problem. My new ones need alot of attention now as well I covered them in caliper paint to help with the rusting. The pads are very simple replacement 2 bolts on the back of the caliper. Remove the pads then screw back in the piston with a import tool from any auto parts store put pads back in, put back on the caliper.
You need to remove the plastice shield, (3 plastic screws into core support, 1 screw to air filter housing). Under that you will see the battery hold down. Remove the one 12mm bolt and replace battery.
