SOURCE: how do I replace brake pads on 2007 tucson. I

use a 14mm wrench or socket to remove the caliper bolts/slides. remove caliper. note how old pads came off, match the new pads with same location of old pads ( check for hardware or indicator location). press the caliper piston in . the correct way is to use a caliper press, apply a little pressure to piston, open bleeder screw, press piston all the way in, tighten bleeder. (or grab a 'c' clamp and slowly push the piston in. i would recommend having the rotors machined to for proper wear and to eliminate vibration. for this remove 2 17mm bolts holding caliper bracket on and rotor will slide off.

Adjust handbrake in Hyundai tucson

The adjustment is made at the handle under the console:


1.Pull the brake lever with a force of approx. 196 N (20 kg, 44 lbs.) and check the number of clicks.

Parking brake lever stroke (Standard value) : 8 clicks

2.If the number of notches is not the standard value, adjust the cable length with the adjusting nut on the equalizer.
3.The indicator light will go out when the brake lever is fully released, and will light up with the lever pulled one notch. If it does not operate properly, replace it.
4.After the adjustment, check that the rear brakes do not drag with the parking brake lever released.

Replaced complete control arm with new ball joint but still clunking.. can it be the wrong bolt or wrong hardness of bolt??

Is the clunking occuring when steering or just on rough roads? With suspension clunks tie rod ends are the most comonly over looked component. To check the tie rod ends jack up each side individually and place jack supports under vehichle in manufacturer allocated position with the parking brake on , on a flat surface . Check the tire deflection by attempting to turn the tire by hand in a side to side fasion also check the lateral deflection of the wheel bearings . There are inner and outer tie rod ends on your vehichle . Other suspension components that can cause clunking are the struts to check these bounce the car as you would a basket ball with your hand by pressing firmly down on each front corner and releasing you may hear the clunk during this test as well.

Three things: Either the rear brakes are releasing, causing a clunk, try service and adjust rear brakes. If not, go to the drive shaft, check the u-joints and/or jack up the rear of the truck and rotate your tires by hand to see if there is a clunk in the rear end itself.
