Disk Brakes - remove two 14mm bolts which mount the caliper to the rear hub assy. Remove the caliper. Remove the phillips screw which holds the rotor to the hub. Machine the rotor and reinstall on the hub & reinstall the phillips screw. Reinstall the caliper and remove one of the caliper hinge pin (sliding pin) 14mm bolts. Flip the caliper out of the way and replace the pads and anti-rattle springs. Recompress the caliper piston all the way back into its cylinder. Flip the caliper back into position and reinstall the 14mm bolts. Of course, you need to purchase the replacement pads and w/anti-rattle springs.

How to change a battery for 2006 Hyundai Tiburon GT? Theres a nut with a washer that is screwed down on the battery terminal

Just remove the nut and washer on both post. If you have a rod that locks the battery down, loosen it up so you can remove the clamp that holds the battery down.
Remove negative battery cable first, then positive cable.
When putting the cables back on, positive gets put on first, then negative.

How do you replace the brake light in a hyundai tiburon

Hello There,

As there are three break lights on the Tiburon (2 sides, 1 centre top) I will post solutions for all of them.

2 side brake lights:
open the hatch, inside on each side of the boot you will find a small carpeted door. take it out and reach through until your hand is directly behind the light cavity. Unscrew the cap to the light cavity and there will be a fastener holding the light bulb firmly in place. to remove fastener push it in and then move it to either left or right depending on which side your changing over, release it and move it out of the way. pull out bulb. to replace repeat these steps but in reverse. Remember it is very important to replace fastener back so it is holding bulb firmly in place

1 centre brake light:
unscrew the base of the light carriage or unclip - depending on make/model. Unclip fastener from bulb. You will then be able to replace the light bulb with ease. Remember it is very important to replace fastener back so it is holding bulb firmly in place.

Hope this helps,

Cheers Buckaroo,

Do not touch light bulbs with bare fingers as it inhibits performance and your bulb may not work. Gloves should be worn at all times when dealing with glass.

Can't get the brakes to bleed to a 2006 hyundai tiburon

The tiburon's brakes are simple, there's no special technique to bleeding them. Are you sure you're bleeding them correctly?

If you are bleeding them correctly, then it's possible that you have a brake leek, causing air to get into the system.

How do you bleed the brakes to a 2006 hyundai tiburon

Go to the r/r caliper, pump the brake pedal three times and hold down, open bleeder to run fluid out, close bleeder, let foot up off brake pedal. Repeat LR, RF, LF calipers. This is called a pressure bleed. Take note whether you got any air out of the bleeders.

I have an 06 hyundai tiburon gt v6 and im replacing the rear brake pads but the caliper pistons seem to be stuck! is there any way they are tied into the front brakes r is this just stuck caliper...

On cars with 4 wheel disc brakes the rear calipers are what they call racheting.The pison needs to be turned clockwise at the same time you are pushing in.This mechanisum is for the E brake system.They make special tools for doing this that you can pick up at your local parts store.

Shifting problems My car is a 2006 Hyundai Tiburon, Automatic, 2.0L 4 Cylinder I've had the car two years I don't know what's related and what isn't so here is the story. Bought car, (cruise control did not work) but everything else seemed fine, engine light came on code read Vehicle Speed Sensor so I bought an input and an out transmission speed sensor and had them installed, Motor blew 2 heads had motor replaced with an almost new motor. Cruise control now works, three days later car would not come out of park shifter moved but car stayed in park felt like shifting cable let loose, I called a backyard mechanic friend and he moved the shifter hard and it went into drive said probably buddy who changed motor forgot to unhook cable and stretched it (made sense to me) it did this everytime car was put into park had to yank on the shifter to get it to shift so I started parking her in neutral and it never messed up, after 3 weeks my new shift cable came in so I went to show my mechanic what car was doing it wouldn't do it worked fine, told him I'd call him next time it messed up this is a year and a half later hasn't messed up like that again! I had already bought the cable so I decided to have it installed anyways even though problem seemed fixed went to a shop they told me nothing is wrong with my cable..... Approx 6 months ago put car into drive and started driving the car reved out (I call it) motor got really loud and RPM gage went to 4K and car jerked really bad and made a really loud snap noise so I pulled over and roughley shift car into park and back into drive and drove this fixed the issue for that drive anyways.... my car one day over heated to red line in a 5 minute drive in the winter my mechanic said must be an air lock so he drained my fluid and replaced ect, next day car wouldn't start, blew starter, replaced that, next day driving car and in a 5 minute drive it overheated to red line took car to shop he said gage is reading wrong car is barely even warm so I decided to take the car home and worry about this issue pay day well the next day car wouldn't start, blew alternator, at this time my mechanic looked over car more closley turns out I had a bad ground so he put on new alternator and new ground, this was a month ago and no more issues with overheating or not starting. However I still have this issue (copy and paste) "put car into drive and started driving the car reved out (I call it) motor got really loud and RPM gage went to 4K and car jerked really bad and made a really loud snap noise so I pulled over and roughley shift car into park and back into drive and drove this fixed the issue for that drive anyways...." After having ground put on and shifting issue still there I took my car directly to Hyundai they ran all their computer tests and transmission tests and took car for a test drive car worked fine and only code that came up was Vehicle Speed Sensor. So here is where I stand first question how many speed sensors does my car have is a transmission input/output speed sensor different then a vehicle speed sensor? I looked on parts sites and only speed sensors I find are ABS speed sensor and Vehicle Speed Transmisson Sensor, so maybe sensors I bought are no good but they were bought new or maybe the connector for the sensors are bad? I don't know any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
