It depends on how "stuck" they are. Penetrating oil (not WD-40) sprayed on and let to sit for a couple of hours will help. You may also need to use a combination of a large "C" clamp, a 2x4 piece of lumber, and/or a rubber mallet, with a liberal application of force.

check for vacum leak
My owners manual says 750# w/o trailer brakes, and 1500# w/trailer brakes.
quoted $300 for front brake pads, figure I can do no own for less
Get your brakes checked. It can be something simple, or it can mean impending doom.
According to Edmunds (http://www.edmunds.com/reviews/list/top10/102426/article.html) the 2004 Hyundai Elantra can tow 3,086 pounds with trailer brakes, and 1,000 without. The article does not specify which powertrain is equipped. The third generation of Hyundai Elantra design spans from 2001 to 2006, and may likely have similar mechanical qualities. For further information, try contacting Hyundai directly at 1-800-633-5151.
Try checking your owner's manual. Non-@sshole answer: 1000 lbs. without trailer brakes, 2000 lbs. with.
Many dealers charge any where from $210 - $350. It all depends on the rotors, if they can be machined then it will be toward the lower end.
We own a 2001 elantra. We baught it new and have put119 ,000 miles on it. We have replaced the timing belt. Hyundai replaced th engine carriage and rocker arms because we live in the rust belt. Hyundai paid for that. Nothing other than tires and brakes.
prob a broken belt in one of the front tires
Only if it has rear disk brakes.
how do i bleed brakes on a 2003 hyunia xg350
I have a Hyundai Elantra GLS 2003 with "anti-lock brakes." I rear ended a car on the highway last night and on recolecting as carefully as I can, I braked, and I believe I braked in time. The car didn't stop. I don't believe it even slowed down appreciably. A friend of mine said that the "anti-lock" mechanism RELEASES the brake when it senses a skid. But what logic there is in not braking immediately after the release (in an automatic pumping motion) escapes me entirely and I braked immediately and I braked hard. I am considering taking Hyundai to court. I'd be grateful for any information or incidents others have experienced.
Its because you are low on brake fluid which means you have a leak or that your brakes are worn down and need to be changed soon.
First find out exactly where they are stiff, then loosen or lubricate that area.
How do you replace front breaks on 2001 Hyundai acce t
All four brake pads and rotors will cost about $510 for a 2007 Hyundai Sonata. Lesser work on the brakes will cost somewhat less.
how do we adjust hand brakes
You probably did not lubricate the calipers when you changed them and they are sticking. Or its entirely possible that the rotors are too thin. Always clean and lubricate the brake assembly before reassembly.
The front brakes and rotors on a 92 Hyundai excel need to function properly to insure that the car stops quickly. A front brake problem can cause an accident or personal injury.
If it's the same set-up as a 2005 Hyundai Elantra GT with disk brakes all around (my car), then it's pretty simple. When you pull the e-brake lever, it tightens 2 cables which pull individually on a lever that is attached to each caliper. This lever turns the piston inside the caliper which tightens the pads on the rotor. Thus, your vehicle stays in place (theoretically). If your cable is too loose or your pads are too worn, then the parking brake will not engage. Or in my case, if both brake cables rusted to hell and then snapped, it won't work either.
I bought a 2002 Elantra in Jan 2005. It had 23,000 miles on it. Today it has 175,000 miles and it has never failed to start. The only things I have ever needed to do to it are routine. Brakes, thermostat, battery, fluid changes, etc. I used to buy a different car every year or two because I would get bored. I love this car. 4 years and 150,000 miles.
get your toner ring checked out.
If the rear brakes are out of adjustment,the hand brake will not work..
I just did this yesterday. It is a little different from the fronts in that the caliper will need to be depressed with a pair of needle nose pliers and not a c clamp as on the front. Other than that it is normal 14 mm socket to do the job. The fronts will require a 17 mm socket.
