Hi from uk to remove rotors/ discs as in uk remove wheel then remove the sprung clip that holds caliper to mounting remember how fitted ! then remove the 2 x bolts securing caliper to the carrier these are at rear of caliper then remove caliper carefully as not to put undue strain on hose ? the rotors/discs are simply secured to the hub assy with 2x countersunk crossheaded bolts/screwed into hub then you may need to tap disc/rotor firmly from b/hind to remove off hub ? reassembly is reverse proceedure just one bit of advice ! these contersunk bolts can round off the x/head but if you use a good driver and hitimpact the driver in bolt it usually frees em or if you have impact driver ? no problem ! if the bolts fail to come out? do not worry ! just drill off the head of bolt and remove disc/rotor these bolts are onle fitted to keep the wheel bolt holes in line with rotor when wheel is removed so play no part in braking !hope this explains clear to you remember !new rotors new pads! not old ones and make sure you bleed the both brake calipers to rid of old fluid from calipers this will make a dfference to your brake feel and operation/travel of pedal good luck

How do u change a broken lug nut

Follow the steps below:

  1. Remove caliper and rotor.
  2. WD40 can only help
  3. Rotate hub such that damaged stud is at bottom.
  4. Lower the hub onto a block of wood on top of a jack stand. (Don't put all the weight onto it, just enough to brace it).
  5. Gentle taps with a sledge.
  6. Use a lug nut to set the new stud.

Brake rotors for hyundai accent

The rotor is mounted to the hub by 4 bolts. The procedure is described in the service manual. Go to and register. You'll have access to the information you want after you register (shop manual, wiring diagrams, service bulletins, etc.).

Brake discs

On earlier Hyundai's, the rotor is bolted to the hub. You have to remove the knuckle and press off the hub bearing to access 4 mounting bolts (I believe they're 14mm bolts) to detach the rotors from the hubs... then press the bearings back on after you've intalled the new rotors. If you're only resurfacing/remachining the rotors, it's easier to use an on-vehicle brake lathe.

Changing the rotor on my 2002 hyundai accent

? you want to change the rotor? the rotors are on the front of the car and they dont have "shoes" they have pads. and a little tap or some heat would get the bolts off. or soak bolts in WD-40 for 10 mins.

Need to relace driver side cv shaft

U will need to disconnect the strut bolts to the steering hub, remove large nut off end of axle shaft at hub, also take the tie rod end off as well as brake caliper and rotor, then push the axle shaft back out of the hub and tie the hub away from the axle with wire, the axle then just snaps out of the trans, this will be very hard to do, you will have to pull the axle at a straight angle and try to pull in a quick outward snapping motion, it will take repeated attempts so don't get frustrated, take your time.

How do i replace the front wheel studs on my hyundai accent

Hyundai in all their wisdom decided to use captive dust shields on the disc brakes. You need to completely disassemble the hub to get the shield off. On my 2008 Accent there is one spot that if you rotate the rotor to that spot and bend the shield back you can then get the stud in place. Be sure to get the right stud as the rear and front are probably different part numbers.

To get the old out use a hammer and a punch to pound them out the back. To get a new one in push it in as far as you can, then using something as a spacer (large nut or washers) and the wheel lug, tighten the stud up drawing it into the rotor.

How to change brake rotors on '99 Accent?

Hit the sides of the rotor's center section (where the lug holes are) with a hammer - often, they'll seize from the heat of the braking system. Several firm taps on it all the way around usually loosens it. If not, hit it harder (seriously). Just don't hit the lug studs or you'll flatten the threads and have to replace them.
