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.

SOURCE: What is the minimum rear brake rotor thickness for

.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.

SOURCE: parking brake

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.

I just changed front and rear rotors and pads on my 2004 hyundai santa fe. i am getting a squeky noise when i make hard right or left turns. i am looking for some possible solutions. thanks.


Hi,
Sounds like a missing brake spacers and brake pad clips when you installed the new ones.
Check again the brake pads and make sure you have sand down the rotors w/ 220 grit sand paper.
Hope that helps you out.
Thanks for asking FixYa!
