Thumbs up

I'm planning to replace rear brakes on 2006 Sonata GL. Cost of resurfacing disc is limiting "options".
Looks like aftermarket (new) discs and pads are way to go. How hard is to remove old (OEM) discs/pads and reinstall new sets. Looks like straight brake r&r job (remove calipers,shims out,old pads out,spread calipers...). Discs have a hole for a removal by bolt in case they are binding and won't come off.
How about hand brake hookup? Is it hard to disengage hand brake and reinstall it on a new set? Is hand brake operating same caliper as reg.foot brake?
Any advice is appreciated.

Thx

I too will be doing this job on an 06 LX and am curious to know what to expect - have done several front brake jobs over the years. Thanks.

Rear brakes are easy. Hardest part is to adjust the shoes for the parking brake. Looks like a pretty easy system. Check that you do not need to crack the line to relieve pressure or if you can use a caliper spreader to put the new pads on.

There are systems out there with ABS if you use a caliper spreader on them you can screw up the accumulator for the ABS system so be sure to check the manuals. As I have not had to do brakes on the Sonata but have done 100's of other vehicles in my life.

The parking brake is inside the rear discs. Sometimes they bind a little when you try to remove the disc so you have to back them off with the adjuster behind the rubber plug. Other than that, it's a standard disc bake R&R - the pistons push straight in and no special tools are needed.

Hi

I am not sure if this will help you guys...

http://www.hyundai-forums.com/t64087-just-...09-santa-fe.htm

I just replaced the rear rotors and pads on my 2009 Santa Fe GLS...I thought the job was pretty easy.

Rear rotors on the Santa Fe are held on by 2 phillips screws. I also took out the rubber plug on the rotor
and loosened the star wheel adjustor on the emergency brake shoes to get the rotor off...
