Hyundai has a really bad design on some of the brake rotors. Once you remove the tires and the caliper (including caliper bracket) you will need to crawl beneath the vehicle (making certain that it's elevated securly. With a large hammer (baby sledge or rubber mallet) bang on the rotor as you slowly rotate the rotor around in a circle. There's a corrosion ring that forms between the rotor and axle hub that makes it seem impossible to get the rotor off. Once you see some movement in the rotor continue in the same manner. the front wheel rotors are considerable more difficult that the rear wheels. With the rear wheels you can usually break the corrosion ring by banging hard on the top of the rotor from the outside of the wheel well. Hit it hard, rotate the wheel a quarter turn and hit it again.

    Hyundai can be a real tough egg to crack. Get yourself a BIG hammer or rubber mallet. The front rotors are a lot harder to remove that are the rear. Not certain which ones you are having difficulty with. With the rear rotors (once the tire and brake hardware is ALL removed) sit facing the rotor. Make certain the car is securely mounted on jack stands (and not just on the jack itself). Hit the top edge of the rotor hard with the BIG hammer. Rotate the rotor one-quarter turn, hit the top edge again real hard. The rear rotors should break the corrosing seal after 1 to 3 hits.



    With the front rotors you will need to elevate the car and securely mount it on a solid set of jack stands. Crawl underneath the front of the car with your BIG hammer (a 2-3 pound baby sledge works best). Hit the botton edge of the rotor from underneath the car. Rotate the rotor aone-quarter turn and hit it again. Rotate another quarter turn and hit it again. Repeat this procedure until you finally get the rotor to wiggle off. There a flat surface between the hub assembly and the inner rotor that builds up some corrosion, and the hammer is being used to slide these two surfaces apart.



    With the rear rotors another trick is to use a propane torch to heat the metal surfaces where the inner ring of the rotor contacts the hub assembly. Once heated use the same procedures as above to break the corrosion ring that has formed. Can't really use the torch on the front rotors because of the very large common surface area. Just be patient and hit hard, it will eventually show signs of coming off.

On earlier Hyundai's, the rotor is bolted to the hub. You have to remove the knuckle and press off the hub bearing to access 4 mounting bolts (I believe they're 14mm bolts) to detach the rotors from the hubs... then press the bearings back on after you've intalled the new rotors. If you're only resurfacing/remachining the rotors, it's easier to use an on-vehicle brake lathe.

    The knuckle needs to be removed and the hub pressed out using a hydraulic press. Then you can access the fasteners behind the rotors to remove them. Then you need to reinstall the hub and reinstall it and the knuckle on the auto.

My front end shakes when i deselerate i cant go over 40 mph


Many possible reasons for this, if it only happens when you brake it limits the problem a little. If this is the case your front brake discs are probably warped, either replace them or have the ones fitted skimmed. I understand that the cost is similar so better to replace with new discs

My rear end went out , i want to know what years are capatable,it has disc on the back,if i cant find one with disc can i switch to shoes with any problems?


If your current rear end has disc brakes then you need to find one with disc brakes or swap all the disc brake stuff over to the new rear end. Drum brakes and disc brakes take a different amount of pressure to activate and the system is set up at the factory that way. You should be able to move all the brake components to the replacement rear end.

Grinding noise


Usually a grinding noise in a disc brake is caused from a rotor with a raised edge that froms from normal wear. The raised edge is not a big deal until you install NEW disc brake pads. All of the sudden you have a grinding noise everytime you apply the brake because the NEW disc pad is being ground down but the raised surface created from the OLD Disc Brake Pad. Most of the time the Brake repair shops turn rotors on the car when the pads are replaced and this grinding symptom does not manifest itself.

On and OLD set of disc brake pads over time that raised area on the rotor starts to flake / rust / corrode and can come in contact with the brake disc pad when the brakes are applied.


Hope this explains it well enough.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How do i replace the back disc brakes on my 2001


There could be a rust buildup in the center surrounding your hub nut making look like the two are connected. Carefully chip the rust away from that area with a hammer and a flat-head screwdriver (wear glasses during). Also the rotor has phillips style retaining screws securing the disc to the hub. If you can't get them screws out I'll tell you what I do on my personal cars, but it's not so approved in the ASE world. I drill the screws out and leave 'em out because the wheel holds the rotor on with the lug nuts. REMOVAL INSTRUCTIONS... Spray some lube in all the openings available on the old disc. You have to remove the bolts to move the brake caliper out of the way (don't open the brake line), just move it and rest it on something like a lower control arm, don't let it hang on a brake line alone. Remove the phillips disc retaining screws. Chip away any rust that is visually preventing removal. OPTION 1 is to insert two 12mm bolts in the threaded holes of the old disc and crank each one evenly until the disc shows signs of backing off (better not to use bolts from the car for this because they can break off in your old disc)... or OPTION 2: Hammer the heck out of it until it can be wiggled off. Rear brakes generally last twice as long as front brakes, this only means they get to sit on there longer and bond to the car as it ages... GOOD LUCK!!!

Cant compress piston on rear brake calipers


Use a caliper wind back tool which rotates the piston at the same time as pushing it back. Release the bleed screw to assist the wind back. If you use a brake hose clamp on the brake hose this will reduce the need to bleed the system.
