SOURCE: i need to change the timing belt

If your belts are squealing it is the drive belt/belts that need attention not the timing belt. You need to check your belt tension and condition and replace as needed. If a timing belt ever got to the point that it might squeal the car would not run because it would be too far out of time. Your belts will all be external whereas at timing belt is internal and a major part of the engine.

The rear pads I bought for 2003 Hyundai sante fe do not fit, what do I do.

It's probably because of excess paint on the area of the new pads that slide on the bracket and you have to file/sand the paint off. I got the cheap Duralast brake pads from Autozone and they didn't have any paint on the pad and they slid right in. I also made a video of me changing them if you want to see that.

Is the alternator for 2003 sante fe located on the top or bottom of engine.

It's not on top or bottom... it's on the 'SIDE' of the engine.... and depending on which engine you have, it could be on the left SIDE or the right SIDE. On the four (4) cylinder engine, it's on the Right Side (firewall side), and on the other two V6 engines, it's on the Left Side (radiator side).

I had the same problem with a 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe. While driving to work as I pressed on the gas the brake and battery light would come on. When I applied the brake, the lights would go off. When I got to work I turned the car off and then tried to start it, nothing. The car made a funny sound while running and I could smell somethig smoking. I replaced the alternator and all is good again. When removing the alternator the bottom lifts off the mounting bracket, you cannot drive the bottom bolt back through the mount as I tried to. Simply remove the nut on the bottom bolt and remove the top bolt, then lift the alternator out.

Trying to replace alternator on 2003 elantra

After you have disconnected the alternator. You can remove it through the bottom of the car. First you need to unscrew 2 bolts above wheel well that holds the bracket with the shock absorber and coil spring. After the assembly is dropped, you can sway the drive shaft forward and backward. Moving the drive shaft forward will allow you to work the alternator out. Good Luck, CM
