You should not need an engine piston on such a new vehicle.
Do you mean a brake piston or something?

If you threw a timing belt, you don't have to replace pistons, just the valves.

If a piston really were bad, you need to take the head off, drop the oil pan, mark and remove the rod cap, and then push the piston and rod out the top.
If the car was not so new, you would also have to **** the ridge off at the top of the cylinder. But probably unnecessary after only 4 years.

Sun visor on driver's side won't stay up or all the way down. 2006 Sonata

This works on any visor. Obtain a small clamp as used in wiring harnesses. On the shaft end of the visor, 1/2 inch from the end, install the clamp around the visor and the shaft. Drill a hole through the visor for the clamp screw and tighten as needed. I might be a redneck, but it works!!
