On cars with 4 wheel disc brakes the rear calipers are what they call racheting.The pison needs to be turned clockwise at the same time you are pushing in.This mechanisum is for the E brake system.They make special tools for doing this that you can pick up at your local parts store.

Can i use a different rear caliper for 2003 Hyundai Tiburon?


The twist is to compensate for break wear for your parking brake. Seeing how you shouldn't have to deal with it except at brake changes I wouldn't worry about it unless it is affecting brake performance.

We put a c-clamp pm the caliber piston but could not get it to move--replacing brake pads on a 2008 tiburon


some of the newer cars have a caliper piston that screw back in not press back in. look at the caliper and see if it has a place to put a screw driver in and turn counter clock wise. i learned this on a 2007 honda accord. hope it helps.

I have a 2003 tiburon and I changed the rear rotors and pads but can't seem to get the caliper back on cause the lower guide pin doesn't slide like the upper one. I have never seen this before is...


YOU NEED TO COMPRESS THE CALIPER PISTON USING SPECIAL TOOL 09580 - 3400 OR YOU CAN USE A LARGE C CLAMP AND THE OLD BRAKE SHOE NEXT TO CALIPER PISTON.BE SURE TO SIPHON OUT 1/3 BRAKE FLUID OUT OF THE MASTER CYLINDER BEFORE COMPRESSING CALIPER PISTON BACK IN THE CALIPER BORE.WHEN YOU FINISH REPLACING REPLACING REAR BRAKE SHOES.MAKE SURE BRAKE MASTERCYLINDER RESERVOIR COVER BACK ON RESERVOIR BACK IN PLACE.THEN PUMP BRAKE PEDAL TO SEAT BRAKE SHOES AGAINST ROTORS AND UNTIL YOU GET FIRM SOLID BRAKES.THEN CHECK BRAKE FLUID LEVEL.DONT DRIVE CAR IF BRAKE PEDAL FEEL SOFT NOT FIRM.CHECK FOR LEAKING BRAKE HOSE OR LEAKING CALIPER PISTON SEAL.

Is there a certain tool you have to have to compress the rear pistons when changing the brakes on a 2003 hyundai tiburon


Normally rear disk brake pistons have notches on the top of the piston that a tool does fit into (usually a small square shaped tool with protrusions that fit into the notches on the top of the caliper pistons and this tool usually fits onto a 3/8 drive extension and ratchet), and the piston is then rotated down into the caliper, it actually screws into the caliper. You do not want to compress this type of piston or you will damage the caliper and piston.

How do you push in the cylinder in rear brakes to change pads on a 2005 tiburon


The Tiburon's rear disk brakes are self-adjusting to compensate for pad wear. You need to twist the piston clockwise to retract it into the caliper. You should do this using a special tool from Hyundai. Alternatively, you can get generic rear brake caliper tool at most auto parts stores that you can use on the end of your ratchet.

Or, you can be really careful with a pair of channel-lock pliers and grip the edge of the piston, allowing you to twist it back into the caliper.

How do i change the back brakes on a 2006 tiburon


Disk Brakes - remove two 14mm bolts which mount the caliper to the rear hub assy. Remove the caliper. Remove the phillips screw which holds the rotor to the hub. Machine the rotor and reinstall on the hub & reinstall the phillips screw. Reinstall the caliper and remove one of the caliper hinge pin (sliding pin) 14mm bolts. Flip the caliper out of the way and replace the pads and anti-rattle springs. Recompress the caliper piston all the way back into its cylinder. Flip the caliper back into position and reinstall the 14mm bolts. Of course, you need to purchase the replacement pads and w/anti-rattle springs.

2005 Huyndai Tiburon Brake Replacement


hi assume you wish to fit new pads ? if so the the rear caliper pistons are not as front calipers just push back you have to wind back the pistons whilst applying pressure to piston there is a tool specially for this purpose which saves time and effort cheapest un uk is the one made by draper tool Co see motor stores? however! you can improvise and manually wind pistons back using the U shape spanner with 2x prongs that is commonly used/supplied to circular saws and this is spanner for changing blades ? does the trick if you have or can borrow one? look at pistons and you will see where tool locates you just turn c/wise and press piston as you do and it will retract have a little patience! the most important tool in the box that money can't buy ! hope this helps best wishes from uk

Shifting problems My car is a 2006 Hyundai Tiburon, Automatic, 2.0L 4 Cylinder I've had the car two years I don't know what's related and what isn't so here is the story. Bought car, (cruise control did not work) but everything else seemed fine, engine light came on code read Vehicle Speed Sensor so I bought an input and an out transmission speed sensor and had them installed, Motor blew 2 heads had motor replaced with an almost new motor. Cruise control now works, three days later car would not come out of park shifter moved but car stayed in park felt like shifting cable let loose, I called a backyard mechanic friend and he moved the shifter hard and it went into drive said probably buddy who changed motor forgot to unhook cable and stretched it (made sense to me) it did this everytime car was put into park had to yank on the shifter to get it to shift so I started parking her in neutral and it never messed up, after 3 weeks my new shift cable came in so I went to show my mechanic what car was doing it wouldn't do it worked fine, told him I'd call him next time it messed up this is a year and a half later hasn't messed up like that again! I had already bought the cable so I decided to have it installed anyways even though problem seemed fixed went to a shop they told me nothing is wrong with my cable..... Approx 6 months ago put car into drive and started driving the car reved out (I call it) motor got really loud and RPM gage went to 4K and car jerked really bad and made a really loud snap noise so I pulled over and roughley shift car into park and back into drive and drove this fixed the issue for that drive anyways.... my car one day over heated to red line in a 5 minute drive in the winter my mechanic said must be an air lock so he drained my fluid and replaced ect, next day car wouldn't start, blew starter, replaced that, next day driving car and in a 5 minute drive it overheated to red line took car to shop he said gage is reading wrong car is barely even warm so I decided to take the car home and worry about this issue pay day well the next day car wouldn't start, blew alternator, at this time my mechanic looked over car more closley turns out I had a bad ground so he put on new alternator and new ground, this was a month ago and no more issues with overheating or not starting. However I still have this issue (copy and paste) "put car into drive and started driving the car reved out (I call it) motor got really loud and RPM gage went to 4K and car jerked really bad and made a really loud snap noise so I pulled over and roughley shift car into park and back into drive and drove this fixed the issue for that drive anyways...." After having ground put on and shifting issue still there I took my car directly to Hyundai they ran all their computer tests and transmission tests and took car for a test drive car worked fine and only code that came up was Vehicle Speed Sensor. So here is where I stand first question how many speed sensors does my car have is a transmission input/output speed sensor different then a vehicle speed sensor? I looked on parts sites and only speed sensors I find are ABS speed sensor and Vehicle Speed Transmisson Sensor, so maybe sensors I bought are no good but they were bought new or maybe the connector for the sensors are bad? I don't know any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
