There is a bleeder valve on the top of the caliper. Have another person pump the brake (WHILE THE CAR IS OFF) until the brake is solid with pressure. Now have them continue to apply pressure by slowly turning the bleeder valve counter clockwise until you hear air or see fluid being expelled. Once the brake pedal pumper has pushed the peddle to the floor have him keep pressure on the peddle until you re-tighten the bleeder valve. DO NOT HAVE HIM RELEASE PRESSURE WHILE THE VALVE IS OPEN or air can make its way to the master cylinder. Start with the tire furthest away from the master cylinder and work towards it. I know you are thinking, "but only one caliper has air in it". This does not matter once air is induced into the brake system. Each and every caliper must be bled to maintain safety and failure to do so can cost your your life along with someone elses.

You either need to rebuild it correctly, or replace it - which is the most common thing to do. Since you probably have crud in it, you may have the other side crud up as well, so the best thing to do would be to change both. -or redo both brakes on the front end. Hope this helps, Rick

You should start with the rear passenger, then rear driver, then front passenger and then front driver. You need to do all four because the system was opened. even if you do not get any air from the other ones, it still needs to be done.

Did you put after market pads on or Hyundai pads, there is a differance with the newer cars, dealer pads are made for that car, I know there expensive, but they are better.
