hi assume you wish to fit new pads ? if so the the rear caliper pistons are not as front calipers just push back you have to wind back the pistons whilst applying pressure to piston there is a tool specially for this purpose which saves time and effort cheapest un uk is the one made by draper tool Co see motor stores? however! you can improvise and manually wind pistons back using the U shape spanner with 2x prongs that is commonly used/supplied to circular saws and this is spanner for changing blades ? does the trick if you have or can borrow one? look at pistons and you will see where tool locates you just turn c/wise and press piston as you do and it will retract have a little patience! the most important tool in the box that money can't buy ! hope this helps best wishes from uk

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.

I have a 2003 tiburon and I changed the rear rotors and pads but can't seem to get the caliper back on cause the lower guide pin doesn't slide like the upper one. I have never seen this before is...


YOU NEED TO COMPRESS THE CALIPER PISTON USING SPECIAL TOOL 09580 - 3400 OR YOU CAN USE A LARGE C CLAMP AND THE OLD BRAKE SHOE NEXT TO CALIPER PISTON.BE SURE TO SIPHON OUT 1/3 BRAKE FLUID OUT OF THE MASTER CYLINDER BEFORE COMPRESSING CALIPER PISTON BACK IN THE CALIPER BORE.WHEN YOU FINISH REPLACING REPLACING REAR BRAKE SHOES.MAKE SURE BRAKE MASTERCYLINDER RESERVOIR COVER BACK ON RESERVOIR BACK IN PLACE.THEN PUMP BRAKE PEDAL TO SEAT BRAKE SHOES AGAINST ROTORS AND UNTIL YOU GET FIRM SOLID BRAKES.THEN CHECK BRAKE FLUID LEVEL.DONT DRIVE CAR IF BRAKE PEDAL FEEL SOFT NOT FIRM.CHECK FOR LEAKING BRAKE HOSE OR LEAKING CALIPER PISTON SEAL.

My 2005 Tiburon GT's rear brake pads appear shot, but the front still look great. Every other car I've had--the opposite has always been the case. Is this "normal" for the Tiburon?


this is normal cos the pads on the rear are smaller than the fronts.....remember to always leave the car in park NOT in nuetral,cos it WILL run away when the rear brakes get cold......

I just had the front brake pads replaced and the mechanic said that the rear pads were fine, but now they are making the shushing sound, even when I am driving and not braking. What should I do?


first port of call is to return to the guy who said all was ok on the rear brakes of a sorento there are brake pads for your service/foot brake, but the handbrake works on a sepperate system. there are brake shoes within the rear brake discs which are solely for the parking brake... have these been overtightened ar just full of dust, my advice is to take it back, if no joy then try someone who knows about this system
any advice i can help with then ask.

How do you push in the cylinder in rear brakes to change pads on a 2005 tiburon


The Tiburon's rear disk brakes are self-adjusting to compensate for pad wear. You need to twist the piston clockwise to retract it into the caliper. You should do this using a special tool from Hyundai. Alternatively, you can get generic rear brake caliper tool at most auto parts stores that you can use on the end of your ratchet.

Or, you can be really careful with a pair of channel-lock pliers and grip the edge of the piston, allowing you to twist it back into the caliper.

How do I change the rotors and brakes on my 1999 hyundai tiburon?


Steps to replace front brake rotors and pads:

Safley jack up vehicle.
support vehicle on safety stands
remove front wheels
Remove 2 bolts holding the caliper to the caliper support.
remove caliper
remove old brake pads
remove 2 bolts holding caliper support to the spindle
remove rotor, might need a good whack with a hammer to loosen rust bond, also might have a locking ring on one lug stud
sand any and all rust from wheel hub
apply a liberal coating of antisiezing compound.
replace rotor and one lug nut to hold rotor steady
replace caliper support
replace new brake pads making sure squeel sensors are on inside upper corner, also make sure to apply caliper grease to caliper slides and pad sliding surfaces push caliper piston back.
replace caliper
replace wheels and torque to specs
lower vehicle
pump pedal
road test listening for any noises.

PS. these are generic instructions that are very basic, performing a brake job is a very precise and careful job. remember this syetem is responcible for stoping your vehicle at 65mph. this is not a job to attemp if you do not have a good grasp of mechanical applications. One mistake could cause you your life or injurt to your persons or someone else. if you are not comfortable undertaking this task please consult a professional.

please feel free to ask any additional questions you might have.

How do i change the back brakes on a 2006 tiburon


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.

Hello Hopeisananch

My favourite car (I have one) and I hope a pleasure to assist.

The Tiburon has brake pads all round and not brake shoes at the back with pads at the front like many other cars.

From your description I would suggest that the rear brake pads and/or callipers are responsible.

I would recommend replacing the rear pads as they may have become very worn over time causing them to rattle against the wheel disc.
The brake callipers are pretty simple to remove once the wheel is off. You will need to jack the car up and remove the lid from the brake fluid reservoir which can be found under the hood.
The calliper is secured by two bolts on each side, they can be released and then pull away the calliper from the wheel assembly making sure to support it whilst working on the pads so as not to stretch the brake pipe.
You will also need to push back the calliper piston using a calliper tool or block of wood. This is to make way for the new thicker brake pads.
The new pads can be replaced ensuring that you use copper grease where the brake pad arms rest inside the calliper but ****do not get copper grease ****onto the surface of the new brake pads or wheel disc.
You can then reassemble the calliper over the new pads and re-bolt tightly into place. You should use a torque wrench to the specified setting however a good solid hand tightening should be fine.
Then replace the wheel and be sure to replace the brake fluid reservoir cap.

Pads themselves are pretty cheap. You can also of course get a mechanic to do the work for you if you are unsure of the proceedure as your safety is after all paramount.

I myself would avoid main dealer charges for this type of work as they can be very expensive.
You may also find a tyre dealer in your area may offer you a free brake inspection and be able to complete the work at reasonable cost.

There is also a full pictorial guide here
