How do you change rear brake pads on a 2004 Hyundai Tiburon?
Remove the rear wheels. Remove the Caliper off the Rotor by removing the two (top and bottom) bolts that hold it on. (14mm i think) Remove the old pads. Compress the piston all the way back into the caliper to provide space for the new pads. (Checker/O'Reilly Auto sells a cube like tool that fits onto a 1/2" ratchet to compress the piston) Put the tabs and new pads in. Replace the caliper mounting bolts and attach the caliper back onto the rotor. After you're done make sure you press the brake padel in all the way and Slowly let it out. You're making sure the caliper piston is correctly seated against the pads and they'll self adjust.

Hi, just did mine, the pistons have to be wound back, if your in the UK you can get the tool from Halfords, about Â£20, i live in Spain & had to use mole grips with somethin…g on the grips so as not to damage the piston, make sure the lug on the back of the pads sit in the recess of the piston...........good luck
open the pistons up and pull the pins, replace pads making sure to put them in the correct spots and replace pins

Make sure you have the emergency brakes off. Block the wheels, and jack the car at the side where you want to take off the drum. Take a hammer and bang on the sides to se…at the shoes a little. I have had stubborn drums on my 2004 pt cruiser that I had to hit from both sides. Then you wiggle the drum off from the top. For leverage you might use the claw of the hammer to help pull the drum off. Work from the top to bottom. It might take some patience.

remove the tire you will see the caliper there are two bolts on the back side usually star sockets remove those and then you can remove the caliper lift it straight up remove …the outer pad first no bolts or screws just pull it off then take a 6"-8" c-clamp push in the inner pad so that you don't have to bleed the brake lines then remove the inner pad and reverse the process.
I am changing rear disc brake pads on a 2004 Chevrolet Malibu lt can I get step by step instructions to make it easier for me.
After you remove the rear caliper and old pads you will see the caliper piston has 4 slots that require a special tool to twist the piston down, you can usually get one to use… from your local auto zone or parts store (I was able to use a pair of needle nose pliers as I'm sure you can), twist the piston clock wise applying a little pressure as you twist, make sure the rubber dust boot is not twisting as well, if it is twisting it is just stuck to the piston and may need a small bit of lube applied between the boot and piston but do your best to keep all dirt/dust out. Now after doing this and have enough room to put the new pads on you will notice that on the back of the pad that rests on the piston there is a small "keeper pin" (for lack of a better word) that will need to be lined up with one of the slots or notches on the piston so that the pad will rest flat against the piston, put on the new pads, reinstall the caliper and slowly pump your brake pedal until you feel the pressure build back up and there you have it. Note, removing the e-brake cable or opening the bleeder valve will do no good and what ever you do don't try to compress the piston you will either damage it or just get extremely frustrated. I just finished replacing front and rear on my daughters 2003, a two hour job start to finish I assumed..... 6 hours and few fits of frustration later I figured it out so I hope this helps at least one backyard mechanic have a better day.

simple. get yourself a wrench set and an actuator tool to push in the rear pistons on the calipers.

There will be allot of info on removing the rear calipers (Find the mounting bolts, remove, then remove the calipers, remove the old pads, put in new pads, replace in reverse …order) - BUT I have done my 2003 a few times, and there is one important thing to watch for - they built these with a "wonky" "threaded" piston in the caliper that pinches the pads. If you screw around with these, be careful, as they are the means to adjust the caliper piston back for the added meat of the new pads. They only adjust the one way (closed) when you mess with them unknowingly. be sure to have them turned in and open (The big flat "cross hairs" on the piston plunger is for this adjustment) - The car is engineered well, save this one part (emergency cable setup is poor too - seizes up) my 2 cents.
Remove the wheels. Remove the Caliper off the Rotor by removing the two (top and bottom) bolts that hold it on. (14mm i think) Remove the old pads. Compress the piston all the… way back into the caliper to provide space for the new pads. (Checker/O'Reilly Auto sells a cube like tool that fits onto a 1/2" ratchet to compress the piston, or borrow the compression tool from Auto Zone.) Put the tabs and new pads in. Replace the caliper mounting bolts and attach the caliper back onto the rotor. After you're done make sure you press the brake padel in all the way and Slowly let it out. You're making sure the caliper piston is correctly seated against the pads and they'll self adjust.

My 2002 cost $30 per drum (new, or $20 to turn old drum) and the shoes were $36 from Napa Wholesale. I did not get the spring kit as they would have had to order it in but it …was $18. Total just shy of $100!
