Question about 2001 Hyundai XG300

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Hyundai XG 300. I replaced the front brake pads and rotors and now have no pedal. When I try bleeding the brakes (engine off or on) no fluid comes through the bleeders. Do you think it is a bad master cylinder? Is there a special bleed procedure for this car?

Why does 02 Mazda Tribute front passenger brake keep locking up?


Try bleeding some brake fluid on that side. You may have a blockage. Also check if the rotor is in good condition, it may be warped. Good luck!

Your pressure is air.. Try bleeding again then clear the codes with obd code reader.. The thing is that the brakes have nothing to do with the rotors and should have never been bled... Good luck...

Replaced break rotor and pads on a 2001 cavalier 2.4 l. non leaks and no air after bleeding. now I have no breaks unless the motor is off


There is no need to bleed anything if only replacing rotors and pads. I suspect you got air in the system when trying to bleed it. Im only guessing here, I cant see what you did.
When motor is running the engine provides a power boost to the pedal. When engine is off there is no power boost, so pedal feels heavy, but does not mean brakes are working then.

I suggest you watch this Youtube video on correct way to bleed brakes, and hopefully fix the problem.

Try re-bleeding ALL wheels starting with furthest away - pass rear, then driv rear, then pass front and driv front. That should get your pedal back. To reset light you need ABS reset tool and it's EXPENSIVE. Have a good competent shop reset it for you. Body shops can reset them also.

Disk brakes are automatically self adjusting. If you have too much travel in the pedal, bleed the brakes. Let us know if you need the procedure.

1999 Chevy Tahoe- Soft Brake Pedal


Try having the dealer flush and bleed your system. It is very hard to bleed ABS systems yourself and have safe brakes that still work afterward. Bleeding non-ABS brakes yourself is easy not the same for ABS brakes. Valving, sensors and what-not require a tech and the correct equipment in my opinion. You do it wrong and you could ruin your ABS system. Do that and see if they firm up. I replaced my brake shoes/pads at the same time all new everything in back, drums/springs everything and new rotors up front. then I had the chevy dealer flush, refill and bleed system. Stiffer pedal and brakes work better. Keep in mind the brakes on 99 Tahoes are inaedequate, require new rotors often, heat up and fade/glaze pads regularly. I replace my pads long before they wear down because they glaze up and start fading early. I'll rough em up once maybe, next time, new ones. Every two brake jobs, new rotors for me. Just how it is. They will stiffen a bit and work better but they will never be awesome brakes. Just how it is on 99 and earlier Tahoes. Hope it helps. Very important to bleed correctly though. I'll bleed my 83 Toyota 4x4 myself but not the Tahoe.

The hard part is pressing the caliper piston abck into the caliper so you can get the new, thicker pads over the rotor. A large C Clamp works best.
