Replacing the front brake pads on the Sonata is a pretty straightforward brake job. Below are specific directions with illustrations to help:


  • Raise and support front end
  • Remove front wheels
  • Remove the caliper guide bolts and remove caliper
  • Suspend caliper by a wire or coathanger to prevent damage to brake hose
  • Remove brake pads

  • Use a large C-clamp to retract and seat caliper piston
