Jack the front of the car up, and make sure it is securely supported. Remove the wheel, remove the 2 guide bolts (located on the back of the caliper), and remove the caliper, hanging it by a coat hanger or wire to keep pressure off the brake line. Remove the pads and shims. Clean rotor with brake parts cleaner, and install new pads/shims. Repeat on other isde. Check with the parts store to see whether or not you need to use anti-squeak compound for your specific brake pads. Once you install them, you will need to bed the brakes to get the most use out of them. Accelerate to 30mph, then hard brake to zero (5-10 times), then repeat but to 60mph and hard brake to zero. Do this a couple times, and you will get very long life out of your brakes.

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.

Everytime i stop it feels like something isgrinding in the front

Have your brakes checked. Hyundai has a habit of grinding up not just the fronts, but also the rear brakes prematurely.

Otherwise, look under your vehicle and make sure you aren't in fact, dragging a plastic piece from your under body.

Good luck!

My 2005 Tiburon GT's rear brake pads appear shot, but the front still look great. Every other car I've had--the opposite has always been the case. Is this "normal" for the Tiburon?

this is normal cos the pads on the rear are smaller than the fronts.....remember to always leave the car in park NOT in nuetral,cos it WILL run away when the rear brakes get cold......

Instructions Instructions for Replacing Rear Break Pads. Hyundai

Things You'll Need:
  • New brake pads
  • C-clamp
  • Allen head, star head, or 6-point socket wrench
  • Lug nut wrench
  • Brake fluid
    Remove the old Brake Pads
  1. Step 1 Park your car on a level surface. If you have a stick shift car, make sure the car is in gear. Place blocks in front of the front tires so the car does not move while you are working on it.
  2. Step 2 Open the hood of your car. Locate the master cylinder and brake fluid container. If necessary, remove brake fluid until the level in the container is less than half full. A turkey baster is a good tool for this. Put the brake fluid in the plastic container and dispose of it the way you dispose of motor oil.
  3. Step 3 Raise the rear end of your car with your car jack. Remove the rear tire or wheel assembly.
  4. Step 4 Use the socket wrench to remove the lower caliper bolt from the back of the caliper. Rotate the caliper up.
  5. Step 5 Remove the brake pads from the caliper.
  6. Install the new Brake Pads
  7. Step 1 Insert the pads into the caliper.
  8. Step 2 Place a large C-clamp on the body of the caliper and slowly tighten the clamp evenly. Compress the piston until it is flush with the caliper.
  9. Step 3 Lower the caliper and use the socket wrench to attach the lower caliper bolt. Tighten the bolt to 16 to 24 ft. lbs. (22 to 32 Nm).
  10. Step 4 Replace the tire wheel assembly tire. Lower the car to the ground. Pump the brake pedal a few times to seat the brake pads.
  11. Step 5 Add fluid to the master cylinder container to replace any you removed before you removed the old brake pads.
  12. Step 6 Season the brake pads by making only gentle stops when you are driving for the first week after you install the new brake pads. Try not to do any hard stopping when you are seasoning the brakes.
