Question about 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited

2 Answers

Squeaky Brakes My breaks squeak on my 2007 Santa Fe when they warm up, it seems that the break pads were not lubricated and the squeak is caused by some rust on the pads. I want to jack the truck with a hydraulic jack rather than the manual jack supplied with the truck. I want to remove the break pads, pass a fine sand paper on them to remove the rust and lubricate them. 2 questions Where do I apply the jack to lift. what lubricant must I use to prevent them from rusting again

If your going to go through all that, your better off replacing the pads. There not that expensive and most Auto parts places like Part Source or Auto Zone have a life time free replacement parts. 
Just replace the pads and may be the rotors if they are damgaged or have worn marks on them. Take care of the ABS sensor not to misalign it or break the wire harness. 
As for jacking up the car. Find a spot on the front frame clip to jack up the car and use a jack stand, a hydraulic jack has been know to fail and start to come down or fall over on it's side with cars being held up.
Never lube the break pads. = Very bad thing.
Good luck and hope this helps.

You can jack up the truck on either the pinch weld or better yet the frame you should definitely use a jack stand to insure safety even with the hydro jack. They are only a few buck and can keep the truck from falling damaging the truck or worse you. as far as the lube.on the caliper slides they make caliper grease that you can buy at any auto part supplier and you can use them on the saddle mounts (the part the brake pads slides on) also if these are newer pads suggest putting a 30 degree taper on the ends of the pads about a centimeter wide to allow for break in period. If these are older pads look at the wear bar on the pads.that is the little metal thing that lets you know when the pads are getting low so you don't end up going metal to metal thus destroying your rotors.it's cheaper to replace the pads than to replace pads and rotors. never put any lube on the pads where they meet the rotor.

Why does my 1991 subaru squeaks then cuts out for a sec.


If it's happening while driving and no brakes applied it's probably a belt causing the noise. There's a product available in most local auto shops that you can use to lubricate the belt. I think the actual name is "stop squeak" but I'm not positive.
If it's squeaking while breaking you may need new breaks or your breaks may be too tight. Another product exists for breaking squeals available in your local auto shop

Break pedal squeaking


is the squeak inside the car? if so, then yes it's probably the pedal or linkage. If it's outside the car, then either the brakes were done poorly or the pads are defective. Assuming you had the front and rear brakes done. Could be the other brakes if only 1 axle was serviced.

What does squeaking sound during breaking mean?


Hi Chery, squeaking from the brakes isn't at all uncommon. The simplest and most likely cause is dust in the braking system. This gets between the fristion material and the disc or drum, heats up and creates the sound. Going beyond that, it might be a lack of lubricant (special grease) bwtween the disc pad (or brake-shoe) and the actuator/s. Worse still it's possible it's indicative of worn out brake friction material in which case it could well be the base of the pad or the brake shoe rubbing against the disc or drum. This last will entail a brake overhaul - fitting replacement pads and/or shoes, and if this has caused disc or drum wear, their repplacement too. Good luck!

I had new brakes installed at a mechanic and now the brake peddle is very low and the mechanic said there is no adjustment on this 2001 hyundia santa fe. isthis true, do you know of a remedy , i am afraid...


when u replace the brake pads you have to push the brake piston back into the calipar when doing this you will loose fluid and you will have to add some your probly going to have the breaks bleed doing that will give you better breaking and will bring the pedal back up i would take it to a different place and have someone else do it cause it sounds like the mechanic that did your brakes is a ******.

I recently replaced all of the break pads (4 wheels all disc) on my 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe. I have a brake, but the pedal goes down too far before gaining hold/stopping the car. I never cracked a bleeder...


the brakes need to be broken in, if you are pushing the pedal hard to try to stop, if the pedal just goes down on normal breaking then theres a problem, make sure the pads are sliding freely, if the pads are tight on the bracket then the bracket needs to be cleaned and lubed, this will make the pedal drop lower than normal, theres no other reason, you never opened the bleeders the pedal should be good, make sure the pads slide freely,

Loud squeaky noise from front tires when turning and somtimes whe


Hi my name is Tom and I can help you.

Driving with your emergency brake on is only going to affect your rear brakes. There is a cable running from the emergency brake lever to your rear brakes.

You did not say how long you drove with the emergency brake on, but even a short distance and you forced the front brakes to do the work of stopping the car. This causes overuse which translates to heat. When the brakes over heat they "fade" and do not stop the car effectively.

In addition the heavy load of doing all the stopping causes the brakes not to realign. Therefore, when you go around corners the brakes pads will rub against the rotors.

I would suggest you get the brakes looked at or look at them yourself. I can help you do the job but I would need to talk to you directly. Let me know what I can do to help.

Squeaky noise when applying breaks


semi-metallic pads can cause noise from glazing over if you are too rough on them, or a crappy pad composition. get some BG brand STOP SQUEAL and apply it to the pads. clears it right up

Squeaky Brakes


there is two things that can cause brakes to squeak: brake dust and not having some brake antisqueak on the back of the pads.
you may have to take off the calipers and put some brake antisqueak on the back of the pads and you can get this at any auto store and see if that helps with the squeaking

Squeaky noise when applying breaks


sometimes if they get a glaze effect they will glaze up causing squeaks. Are they very shiny? if so they are glazed. Also are they factory pads or aftermarket do you know? Metallic pads almost always will give off a little squeak. If you know how to take off wheel and caliper you can remove the rotors and bring them into parts store and they can turn them real quick for you for about 20-30 for both of them. Just do the fronts. if you say your pads are fine leave them alone and just reuse them. This will help renew the brakes alittle but when you do replace pads in future always replace rotors as well dont turn them with new pads. and if you can, go with ceramic pads. less likely to squeal but just for a few hundred miles untill break in is over.
