Question about 2006 Hyundai Tucson
H i from uk if pedal was ok prior to pads change ? then pardon me for suggesting go back to each caliper and make sure you have fitted the spring that hold caliper to its mounting correctly as if not this will allow pads to withdrawer when pedal off but will be able to pump pedal to good feel also these springs do not come into contact with outer pads ! they only keep caliper sprung/secure in placealso have you bled the front calipers ? it is a fact that your brake fluid does absorb moisture over time and also fluid absorbs high temps by conduction from pads and thro the piston of caliper resulting in fluid being o/heated over time then it becomes compressable hence spongy pedal occures it is recommended in service shedules that fluid be flushed at intervals /12 months ? to confirm a point if you blead calipers into clear jar ? you will notice 1st couple of pumps you bleed the flui will be dark brown/black ? b4 freash clear fluid emerges just try it ? you should do this each time work such as new pads/shoes are fitted on any vehicle if you have any more info as to what you discover please come back with results as your vehicle is 2006 i would not suspect there is a fault that req's more expendature at this time ?
