Does anyone know if the brake shoes on the parking brake on the XG30 are the same as on any other Hyundai/KIA? Asking since no of my normal dealers are listing these.
Well, got the rear disks off the car today. Totaly and compleatly rusted down, the adjustment screw was "solid", had to use a blowtorch and a hammer to get it movable again. The brake shoes where non existing, there where a very thin slice on one side, the other side had vaporized.in Europe the front and rear brake pads are the same as the Santa Fe.......so it would follow that the handbrake shoes are the same (but l can't be sure).........are you sure the shoes are worn out?
I guess so too, anyway.. The rear brakes (262mm disks, 168mm diameter on the internal drums) are cheap and I got a pair for £29 a piece at a local dealer. I have also sourced the mounting kit for the brake shoes localy for £15. The brake shoes themselvs where more expensive here so I ended up ordering a set from UK via ebay. £33 incl shipping is fair I think.what a mess, looks like the handbrake has been seized on and overheated
