Question about 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe
THE REAR BRAKE ROTOR IS A LOOSE ROTOR AND SHOULD COME OFF EASILY. IF NOT, IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE ROTOR IS HELD BY RUST ONTO THE HUB OR THE BRAKE SHOES IS STILL EMBEDDED INTO THE ROTOR. REMOVE THE HANDBRAKE CABLE TO ENSURE THAT THE BRAKESHOES COLLAPSE AND TRY TO LOSEN IT AGAIN. IF SEASED ONTO THE HUB BY RUST, KNOCK THE ROTOR WITH A COPPER HAMMER TO BRAKE THE RUST WITH A RUST REMOVER.

I was able to beat one off that was rusted to the hub with a block of wood and hammer from the back. I made a video on how to change the rear brake pads and rotor also.

.331 (In thousandths of an inch) If brake rotor measures at or under this
specification, it must be discarded.That's if you have the V6 and 2WD. IF that's not what you have check here
If that doesn't work got to the autozone website and click repair info then click specification, then brakes and then minimal maching.

I just replaced rotors on my 2003 Santa Fe, There are 2 phillips screws in the rotor that must be removed. There is an auto adjuster on bottom of brakes. That inspection hole is very small! Sometimes you must tap a hammer around the drum to loosen the rust. Hope this helps.

remove tire remove caliper and pads with two bolts and adj emergency brake off all the way or untill rotor will come off .Replace shoes (if you don`t know how remove only one side and install other side the same then install remaining shoes.)If rotor or inside drum surface is rough turn or relace rotors. Adj brakes up (parking) and reinastall caliper.Pump brakes half way down only till good pedal not all the way down or the piston in master cylinder will go to end of stroke where all the gook is and you`ll replace master cylinder very shortly
