If you change the pads or the rotors only you don't have to bleed your system. If you change the caliper, yes you do.

Also, you need to rotate the piston in order to make it go in, don't try to push on it.

Actually it's just rears you need to rotate. There's a special tool you can use to make this easier though I forget what it's called....looks like mini cube. You can find it at pep boys. The fronts you can compress like normal.

You don't need to bleed you brakes unless you are taking the calipers off, but I would suggest doing it anyway. It's quick, easy and an essential part of the system. That and it makes a big difference in brake feel.

How do you rotate the piston? And how exactly do the old pads pop out??

The tool in particular you want for our cars is this little thing.

They attach on the end of the socket exender and have different sets on each side for different cars. Nifty huh? You should be able to find one at a local pep boys or auto zone....they're like 5-10 bucks.

CATCH22! is an unknown quantity at this point
Re: how to change rear brakes 2003 tiburon! Help!!

I am one of those " figure out what you got that will work kind of guys. So, in replacing the rear brakes on my sons Tiburon, I tried the needle nose plyers advise. It will work, but they slip out easily.

In looking around my shop, I found a great tool for this. If you have an electric mini grinder (the hand held, not the dremmel kind). It should have a tool for removing the end nut. This has two little pins that fit perfectly in the caliper and makes turning it in very easy.

Re: how to change rear brakes 2003 tiburon! Help!!

the old pads just pop off. wiggle them around a little. Definitely go to Autozone or some where you can "rent" tools and ask for the tool to push(really twist) the caliber piston back in. Take the lid off you brake fluid resevoir to make it a bit easier. DO NOT DRIVE ANYWHERE once you have put them back on. It wont matter as much as front brakes but you have to pump the brakes to get the piston back to position. just an fyi since i almost made that mistake.

Re: how to change rear brakes 2003 tiburon! Help!!

also watch out for the set screws in the center of the rotor. Bathe those things in some lube before you try to loosen them or else theyll strip instantly and you'll have to chisel them out. Its debatable whether or not you have to put them back in though when you go back together.

If you cant get the set screws out you can use a drill and remove the screw heads (they are not required).

+1, not required but I managed to save them. I have an old "hand impact driver" that is 3/8" and a selection of bits.

Re: how to change rear brakes 2003 tiburon! Help!!

Dont be foolish. Spend the $11.50 and buy the cube pictured above. Its cheap and it works correctly and you will not destroy your knuckles or damage the caliper.

When you replace the pads, and IF you replace the rotors, DO NOT BLEED YOUR BRAKE SYSTEM. You have no reason to open the brake lines and allow air in. If you dont have air in the system, do not open the lines and cause the issue.

Also, your brake pads will come with some shims. Be sure to use them. If you do not, the brake pads will slide and braking will feel loose and grabby.

While I agree that changing pads and/or rotors does NOT require you to bleed brakes, I recommend bleeding them every 1-2 years to get the crude out of the lines. Even if you're very cautious on topping the fluid level up and keeping things sealed, you still get aged fluid in the lines (some is degraded fluid from heat generated during braking).
Make sure you compress the front caliper piston (bleeder open) when about done bleeding a specific caliper. This gets the crude that settles low behind the piston that just bleeding WON'T clear out.

It's a GOOD thing to do now & then.
