How do i change brake pads on a 2009 hyundai elantra

That was a close description but not exact. There are no "pins" that need to be removed. You can re lube the sliding pins the caliper bolts go into but they do not have to be removed to replace pads. The brake hose does not need to be detached and neither the front or rears on the '09 need to be "turned" in; they just push in. Some model years do turn to retract but not the '09.

The pads both front and rear are notoriously tight but work OK. I do lube them well. I do not use the OEM shims. Most replacement pads have shims attached.

Parking brake 2005 elantra does not work

Hi Richard, I think you may find that the park brake works on a separate system with a set of small brake liners inside a drum on the rear wheels. If I'm wrong and it uses the disc pads, try replacing the pads and adjusting the travel, that should sort out the problem. Regards John

No, there are no different pads, you just have a very sensitve brake system in your car, try usung the emergency brake when driving in the snow. Slightly apply the emergency brake when you drive this will help balance the front and rear brake systems.

I hear a tapping from my right rear brake when I brake. Doesn't happen when I dont brake. I just replaced the shoes, drums and hardware. This was happening before i replaced all of this too.

dear friend:the tapping noise comes from the brakepads and it means that the anti rattle plates were not installed on the last brake pad
