For the heater ,disconnect the two water pipes for the heater and flush out with a hose and keep reversing the direction till the water runs clear.flush the engine out while your at it as well.then refill using eythelene glycol antifreeze minimum 50 % ,this is also an anticorrosion inhibitor to heater will not block up again.never top up a colling system with just water ,distilled or otherwise wives tale only antifreeze

If you have never performed a drum brake install I do not suggest you attempt it. It requires knowledge and skills that must be learned from a professional or at least someone that has done at least 10 drum brake installs.

If you have disc brakes, don't forget you need to take your rotors off and get them miked to make sure they are not to thin and also you need to get the rotors turned on a lathe before putting new brake pads on.

Again, if you don't know or are not experienced in performing brake jobs DO NOT ATTEMPT YOURSELF. This could cause serious injury/death or expensive part failure as a result of an inexperienced brake job.

As far as your heater is concerned, you have several options here:
A: Your coolant is low, check your coolant level.
B: Your thermostat has failed in the half open position
C: Your heater core control valve has failed

It is difficult to tell which one applies to you. I recommend taking it to a shop to determine which one it is.

Removing breaks from a 2000 Hyundai Accent


hi from uk the 17mm bolts you mention do not remove as these secure the caliper carrier and only need removing to facilitate disc/rotor renewal to remove caliper only if you check the rear of caliper you will see two 13mm blts top and bottom of caliper these bolts pass thro conveluted rubber boots into slide pins bolts screw into these pins and the caliper is what is known as floating caliper this means only one piston operation on caliper then caliper slides on pins tou operate both pads when brakes applied so remove the two bolts and the steel spring on front face of caliper ?(remember how it fits !) then caliper slides off the rotor leaving pads in place on the carrier you then prise out pads/wirebrush carrier points where new pads are to fit then push caliper piston back then refit caliper in reverse order ADVICE= before refitting caliper smear alittle copper grease on rear metal side of each pad this prevents squeeling of pads when braking also pull out the to pins mentioned above that fit into carrier top/bottom wipe clean and put /smear copper grease on these too then refit and push in till rubber boots reseat on the carrier lips ? when you have done both sides brakes bleed calipers this is a must ! and when you do you will see dirty fluid emmited on the fist couple of pumps on b/pedal then clean fluid ? this WILL improve b/pedal travel and more positive ? the dirty fluid is o/heated /burnt fluid which becomes compressable giving soft pedal when operated and is due to heat transfer from disc/pads over time and is conducted thro caliper piston to fluid that is why it is recommended you bleed/flush hydraulics at least 2year intervals hope the above helps you and understandable best wishes from uk
