Question about 2009 Hyundai Sonata
I hear a grinding noise coming from the rear driver side wheel. When I touch the lug nuts, they almost instantly burn my fingers while EVERY other one on the vehicle is cool enough and I press on it with my full weight. Is it the bearings or is it the brakes?
Sounds like the brakes are binding on that particular wheel. To test for a wheel brg fault. Raise the vehicle when the wheel is cool turn the wheel direction of rotation as fast as you can and hold the shock and feel for a grinding noise. If it is felt then its your wheel brg thats packing up.

Sounds like the wheel bearing is bad - when it is, the friction inside the hub goes up and the hub gets heated, sometimes to scalding temperatures. You should immediately look into getting this handled - a fully failed wheel bearing may cause the wheel to lock up at speed, potentially causing a crash.

Could be a wheel bearing that is starting to have trouble - you won't always hear it right as soon as it starts to fail. If it is a wheel bearing though, very soon you'll start to notice a rumbling noise.

Hello mpolci...The 2003 Tiburon was sold to the public with a defective clutch, it failed due to warpage and bad pressure plate... among other things. There are MANY class action lawsuits. Did you resurface or replace the flywheel when the clutch was replaced? Did you go with an aftermarket clutch kit, or factory? Also the slave cylinder on the 03 was known to have a defective valve.
You can try checking the levels and bleeding the system and if you still have problems, then it could be a release bearing, a loose clutch pad, or a broken pressure plate spring....If the clutch is still under warranty, i would return it to the installer.
Good luck, i hope this helps...please rate me a fixya.
