I was replacing the rear pads and rotors on my wife's Santa fe. The rotor wont come off so I used a bolt and nut method to push it out where the bracket bolts onto. Now, what is that part called? It seems that I misaligned it by 1-2mm and while putting the bracket the bolt stripped the top thread on the bracket.

I am looking for the bracket but what is that part called? Can I hammer it to align it or is it made of cast iron?

thanks!

I thought it was the caliper mounts onto the caliper bracket
And the caliper bracket mounts to the caliper mounting bracket

On drum to disc conversions, they use the backing plate as the mounting bracket.

Guess I would call up Hyundai and ask for the bracket which the caliper mounts onto the car
Being very careful to explain exactly the placement and purpose of the mounting bracket
Should be able to get a name and a part number.

If you have a tap, chase the threads from the side where they aren't damaged. If you don't, take the bolt to an auto parts store and match it up with one. If the bolt threads aren't in good shape, get a couple of bolts too.

I'd probably change that one from Metric to SAE, take the next larger tap, and just tap it out and change it over to SAE instead. Might even do it on both top and bottom, just to keep them the same on that side.

Or, replace the whole hub assy. Prob ~$100.
