Question about Hyundai Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I have a 2006 Hyundai Azera and want to replace the front rotors. I cannot remove the front driver side. The two screws on the rotor would not even come out with an impact screw drive so i had to machine them flush with the back of the rotor. I hit the rotor to break them loose and it wouldn,t move. I tried a heavy duty puller and hit it with a hammer and still would not budge at all. I was wondering if i could remove the axle nut and remove the hub and place it on a hyd. arbor press to remove the rotor. I have replaced many rotors before and never had this problem before. Howard

SOURCE: I cannot get the rear brake drums off of my 2003 Buick Century.

First go to Wal-Mart and get some PB blaster penitrent spray around center of hub let set, mean while if there is a slot where you can get to break ajuster, back the breaks off providing the ajusters are not froze up from rust, if you can' back them off you will have to for go that, you may have to get a screwdriver or prybar to pry with, insert prybar between backing plate and break drumb and pry out and at same time strike other side with a hammer, keep spraying every once in a while and it should pop off, the problem is its rusted to hub and needs some perswaysion to come off. now in extream cases you may need a torch, depending on how long sense they have been off.

if you changing the brakes you don't need to get the rotors out.you need to get the brake part
out first it has only two screws in back of the brake part....take it out, and you will be available to remove the brake. and if you want you can remove the rotors too. but you dont need to remove it. just take the brakes out and put the new ones.

SOURCE: 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 http://www.hmaservice.com/ and register. You'll have access to the information you want after you register (shop manual, wiring diagrams, service bulletins, etc.).

SOURCE: rear brakes (driver-side) squeal after replacing rotors and pads

you need to grease the metal clips at the top and bottom of the pads (dont get grease on the rotor or pad though) and also spray some "disc brake quiet" on the back of the pads. it comes in a red can and the spray that comes out is like sticky red paint. do those 2 things and the squeals will be gone.

SOURCE: can't get the damn rotor off 06 Hyundai Sonata

Depends somewhat if it's a front rotor or a rear rotor. The most common problem will be "corrosion" that's binding the two metal parts together. If you are not trying to reuse the rotor after turning (many are throwaways now adays) take a large hammer and bang the outer edge of the rotor. The vibration should cause the corrosion to break apart, and the rotor should pull away. If your planning on re-using the rotor after turning use a large rubber mallet.

The front rotors have about a 3/4 inch common surface between the rotor and the wheel hub. You may need to bang on the backside of the rotor as you slowly turn the rotor in order to cause the two parts to slide apart. It can be a slow process, but you should see some movement (but it must be even movement around the entire rotor. The back rotors have far less common surface and a few good waps should break the parts free.

Both front wheel roters are stuck


What do you mean stuck? When I went to replace my rotors the first time on my 2006 I discovered 3 brass flat head screws in the Rotors. I literally had to drill the heads off to get them out. When I went to the parts store for replacements I discovered that these are only put on at the plant so when it is traveling on the assembly line the Rotors do not come flying off. THey are not necessary and do not need to be replaced

How do I remove the front rotors from a 2006 Hyundai Sonata?


place the car on a jack or lift and raise the car so the tire is several inches off the ground, remove the tire by removing the lug nuts, once off you must undo the brake bleeder, it looks like a small nozzle on top to the calipers, then insert a screw driver or something of the like between the brake piston and rotor and push the piston back, once that is done undo the two screws one on top of the caliper and one at the bottom, once done remove the caliper but be careful not to pull the tube of the caliper to far. then you should be able to pull the rotor off, if it wont come off take a rubber mallet and tap the back of the rotor, the rotor should come off without too much issue

My 2006 hyundai azera limited passenger seat is locked in the down position. Any idea on how to fix?


Check the fuse--it may be out. Fuse box is on the side of the dash (when the driver's side door is open) next to the steering wheel. Pull hard--the fuse names are on the panel door you just pulled out. Fuse puller is in the "engine room" according to the manual for a 2006 Hyundai Azera Limited, though I haven't been able to find the "engine room", yet.

How do I remove front rotors from a 2003 hyundai elantra


First jack the front end up. Then remove the wheels. Then remove the calipers. Then the rotors should fall right off the car into your hands. They are not pressed on or hubs

I Can't get front rotors off my 2006 Toyota Camry.


On most camries you need to remove the wheels, then brake pads, and the calipers. Most camries do not use any screws to hold the rotors, thus when you remove the calipers you should be able to remove rotors without problems.

Can not get the rotors off my 97 hyundai tibaron


Hyundai Tiburon 96-01 uses a outer hub system. To replace front rotors. You'll need front bearings as well. The bearing and hub will need to be pressed out of the spindal. Then replacement of bearing will need to be pressed in. From a shop.Or they can use a slide hammer to remove ,but damages the bearing. Best to buy bearing and have cash for an alignment job too.Then replace front rotors. Rotor and hub install is ez after you get bearing pressed.Rear rotor and bearing are bolt on though.

2006 Silverado - remove front rotors


Yes the torx screw must be removed and you are right the other two threaded holes you can use two bolts screw them in there after you remove the torx and it will push the rotor off the hub and the best way to remove the torx is with a impact driver it is like a screw driver you change the bits but you hit the end with a hammer which the tool then twists and removes the srew you can find them at any tool store prolly even autozone... and if you dont use bolts to push the hub off just use a brass hammer and pound off the rotor
